Very Appropriate lol, can mean so many things :-)

I was thinking over the weekend about possibly making a mosaic top for it. A long rectangular one with a vintage look to the design... to add a bit of quirkyness to it.

Thanks for the reply :-)

Hi ladies,

Not sure if this is the right section but I figure you will either be able to help me, or point me in the right direction.

I have a Singer Tredle Base that I have carted around with me for 15 years and spent roughly 20years under my Mum and Dad's house.

I am planning a nice sanded polished timber top, however I'm stuck on the frame.

I'm planning to strip the old paint of, prime it with a rust proof primer and paint it black.

Now this is the part im not sure will work.

Would you do gold leafing over "SINGER" and also the detail on the side? Or would that look tacky?

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Fresh Summer Curtains for my girls Bedroom on: October 06, 2009 08:16:47 PM
Got bored this morning so i thought I needed to make some new curtains for my girls bedroom. They currently had thick heavy winter ones, so I made some fresh breezy light summer curtains.

Just something basic as I haven't been crafting for awhile since I moved house.

Wow thanks for your reply!

I can't remember what type of oil I used, it was a few years ago now, I am pretty sure it was a citrus one. My grand father used Marine Varnish as they lived along the canals in Brisbane (Australia) and I guess he already had lots of it from their boat? Not to sure it was years before I was born lol.

Yes the seats are pop out type, screwed from the bottom and the back rest is a piece of timber covered and screwed from the sides. My mother (and grandmother) originally made sewn fitted covers for the chairs. I'm not sure weather to try to replicate or use the fold and nail method.

Thanks a lot for your post it's really helped me get some idea of where to start :-)

omg i love it!

How would i make one of these myself? I don't have a die cutter, is there a template somewhere on the net where I can print and use magnetic sheets and do another type of doll?

These are just unreal :-)
