Winner! Halloween Ghost Doll
Angela Clark of Poppywise Productions used cheesecloth to make this Halloween ghost doll. Here’s what she said about it:
“I’m a doll artist, and I use materials from OFS everyday. I have collectors around the world and have been published in magazines, and OFS products are always a part of every project I create.
My entry is one of my signature pieces – a Tattered Witch Ghostie. I struggled for a long time with poor quality and overly expensive cheesecloth until I found it at Online Fabric Store. My ghost dolls are composed of several layers of dyed cheesecloth which I rip and tear for a “loved for a 100 years look”. I don’t buy the cheesecloth anywhere else anymore, and stock up like a crazy lady when OFS has a sale.
Thank you for providing exactly what I need!”
You’re welcome Angela! Thanks for making really cool things with our fabric!
Cotton Duck Jacket
“Cooler temperature have finally arrived and I got to wear my favorite jacket today. It’s made of 9.3 oz moss green cotton duck from @onlinefabricstore which I softened and fatigued. Embroidery designs are from @urbanthreadsemb and sewn by my faithful Bernina.”
Child’s Sleeper Sofa
And now something fun for the kids! Thanks to Debra Williams for submitting this sleeper sofa made with Brown/Ivory Pony Velboa Faux Fur and 60″ Single Fill 12 Oz Duck for the interior part of the sofa. See the rest of our Velboa Faux Fur for more soft animal prints.
Clear Vinyl Greenhouse
“The structure is 10 feet by 8 feet and stands a little over 8 feet tall. The vinyl was attached with stainless steel staples and strips of old bicycle tube cut to about 1 ” wide and meant to seal the plastic, followed by cedar ‘lathe’ as a cap to hold it all on. The seal created is excellent and resists wind and rain perfectly. The vinyl is very clear, so our oceanfront view is not as obstructed, (except by plants), yet strong. The two doors on either end of the building are screened and open against the prevailing wind, while the upper 1/2 of the door is covered by a vinyl covered ‘gull-winged’ panel that is hinged to open the opposite direction funneling breezes into the structure. This helps cool the greenhouse on extremely hot days, and when closed seals the greenhouse against cooler temperatures. A narrow window, approximately 8″ wide and running the length of the building, drops down to assist in ventilation during the day and closes tight at night, to conserve heat.”
Kathy Inglima upholstered this awesome armchair using Swavelle / Mill Creek Toroli Aqua Fabric. This is her first time upholstering a wing back chair. Great pattern mixing!
