Oh man. I love these. I agree with the above poster that you should make an 'alot'. You should send the artist the link, she'll love 'em.
13  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Roman shades from mini blinds on: July 31, 2011 07:47:35 PM

I made these roman shades myself from some fabric and some $6 mini blinds using this tutorial http://littlegreennotebook.blogspot.com/2009/02/make-shades-out-of-mini-blinds.html

It was very easy and took about 2 1/2 hours with a friend to get two done. That is, the curtain you see and another one just like it down the hall. There was no sewing, just scissors and glue. The only thing I would do different, would be to consider lining the fabric so you can't see the blind slats so much during the day. But I probably wouldn't do it. That sounds like to much work.

This was a very satisfying and simple project I'd recommend to anyone. With the leftover fabric, I made a little ruffle-y cafe curtain above the sink window, and a little square for the center of the table. I wanted to make a table cloth but thought it would have been to matchy-matchy.

Thank you for looking. Don't be intimidated to try it yourself!

I really love this idea. I'm throwing a shower in a few months and will defiantly be using this. Thank you for posting this.

That looks fab!  Smiley

I never would have thought of putting the shades on wine glasses even though I'd been looking for that kind of thing - it's great! (had seen shades on jars, and candle holders shaped like various drinking glasses, but never thought of combing the 2)!

Have you seen this project: http://www.mariamcbride.com/holiday_ideas/holiday05.htmlfor place name holders. It would look fab on your tables too!

Your link needs to be fixed.

I'm from Illinois. http://www.ci.olney.il.us/Visitors/WhiteSquirrel.htm

I dig the Firefly reference, but I actually really like the hot air balloon the best. The mechanical line details are excellent.

I liked working on that one, the picture had a lot of detail and every time I thought I was done I would think, "well, maybe just a little bit more..."

Here are my first attempts at embroidery. The first was the Serenity patch... as in Firefly... are ya with me?  Smiley It's two layers of felt and I did a horrible rendition of satin stitch on it.

Moving on, I made this pillow. I found the picture online, but after 10 minutes of googling I can't find it again. I wasn't happy after I sewed the orange stripe in, but it was too small otherwise. Whatcha gonna do? Undecided

My favorite has been this squirrel one. I pattern is from here http://zuill.us/andreablog/2009/12/29/january-2010s-embroidery-pattern/. There's a lot of cute pattern there. It's on a light denim material, had to be dark because I wanted the squirrels to be white. It's a christmas gift for my grandma, there's albino squirrels where we live.

All in all, i'm really liking embroidery. It's more instant gratification that knitting, and it's a bit like drawing on fabric. But you all already knew that didn't you. Wink

I was ready for a change from the argyle. If you don't count design time this changeout took me about three hours, which includes peeling off the old and making the new stickers. The sun/cloud design is my own. I went through many variations, but this one made me smile everytime.  

The shooting star is from a vector catalog we own. This side makes me think of a My Little Pony. It's a whole different look from the argyle. Thanks for checking it out. Oh, by the way, it's name is Winnie Cooper.

I really love all of these. You picked great quotes to go with each of them.

HOT HOT HOT! I love this table. I love how there's layering of the hardware and such over the glass. Way to go.
