Other Crafty Projects
I tried making soap. I can't say it was a complete success because I had hoped for Martha Stewart quality. But I wasn't entirely unpleased with the results. For the fancy soaps I used a mold I bought at the crafts store. For the little round soaps, I used the containers that the pre-made jell-o comes in.
The tie-died couch cover is finished! My first attempt at sewing a fitted couch cover. The tie-dye was "accidental on purpose." I tried to dye it a solid color somewhere between Picabou and Gretsky. It came out with a big splotch that made it look like a used drop cloth. So then I tried to tie dye it with a darker color, but I didn't twist it enough and all my rubber bands came off. It turned a solid dark purple. So I tied and twisted it again, and then soaked it in bleach and water, and this pinky marble look was the result. I really like it.
This was the chair I upholstered in the class I took. There are two of them. The fabric is velvety with an interesting pattern.
A tiny little slipcover project. The damage to this footstool was done by Picabou when she was a puppy.
