1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Star Wars Frame and Pencil Holder on: May 13, 2008 01:56:22 AM
My boyfriend's birthday is this Wednesday, and for the past few days I had been trying to think of something I could make him. Boys are so hard to craft for! Then I remembered that he is obsessed with Star Wars and would love anything relating to it. I went to the local comic book store and bought 2 vintage star wars comics ($6 each), got a plain wood frame at Michaels for about $7, and a plain black pencil holder at Staples for about $3. I decoupaged both the frame and pencil holder with glossy finish Mod Podge. He REALLY needs a pencil holder lol He has a huge desk with 2 computers and papers everywhere, but no pencils! Here they are...

2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Rainbow and Skull Magnets! on: April 13, 2008 07:22:18 PM
I've just been getting into polymer clay, and I LOVE magnets. So I made some skulls and circle rainbow magnets........

The rainbows didn't turn out as perfect as I had hoped, but I still like them. That light purple seems to burn very fast. The skulls glow in the dark  Grin

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Mod/Retro Dresser and Night Stand on: July 15, 2007 02:56:55 PM
I finally got around to decorating my boring dresser and night stand. Sorry I only have after pictures. But before it was just all cherry wood, with scratches all over- it was pretty ugly and boring. I used fabric that I found at Joann's, and used the Hard Finish Mod Podge to glue and finish it.

and the night stand- please excuse the dust  Grin

4  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Which order do I sew it on? on: June 20, 2007 12:10:08 AM
Sorry if this question has been asked already, but I didn't see anything on this topic.

I am making my very first quilt. It is a simple one with 6x7inch squares. I was just wondering what is attached to what in what order.

Do I sew the quilt top first, then sew the quilt backing to the batting, then attach the backing/batting piece to the quilt top?

Or do I sew the squares onto the batting, then attach the backing?

I'm so confused and I don't know how else to explain this. I hope this makes sense lol. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Grin
