Hi Shirley, Thanks so much for your kind comment. I am happy to know that others appreciate my kooky style.
Thanks Alison, This project remains one of my best even after all these years.
Hi Nancy, Thanks so much for your comment. I did not have an actual pattern for these hats, I made one in this video tutorial link below. Thanks again, Cindy
Hi Jean, Sorry about the video. You should be able to view it now.
Thank you Judy. Hope you stop by again.
Hi Tacy, Thanks for your question. The sandpaper is used as a strike plate for the matches. Cindy
Thanks for your nice comment.
Hi Yvette, Thanks for checking out my Valentine's Day Projects. Yes I will be posting links for all of the projects as I finish them. The plastic bag puff balls and heart should be up in a couple of weeks. Thanks again.
Hi Candice, Thanks so much for your comment and the suggestion to add more details. No promises but I may do a future video, time permitting. :-) For the hat I used an empty spool from thread and some thin black foam. Thanks again. Cindy
Thank you so much for your comment. I am glad that you have the love of a furry four legged creature they are definitely worth any trouble that they cause. Best of luck to you as well.
Hi Lori, Thanks for your question. It has been quite a while since I made these projects but if I remember correctly the back brim pieces are not cut on the fold, they are sewn together. Thanks again for checking out my project.
Hi Barbara, Thanks so much for your comment.
Hi Trish, Thanks so much for your comment.
Thanks. It did take a little while but I like how it turned out.
Hi Janice, Thanks for your question. If you click on the video in this post it will show you how I made the pattern for this hat.
Hi, Thanks so much for your comment and for stopping by my blog.
Hi Patti, Thanks for your comment. I am sure you could paint these baskets. I have painted magazine pages for other projects. It sounds like you are ready to start weaving. Great to here that you enjoy recycling / upcycling. Cindy
Hi Mary, Thanks for your comment! To answer your questions the chair feels a bit like a wicker chair now so, not super comfortable but not really uncomfortable either. I actually have two of these chairs and the first one I made is in perfect condition. The second one has required a few repairs as in re-gluing some spots due to the fact that our golden colored dog has claimed it for her personal viewing spot to look out the window and for some weird reason she like sleeping in it too, which is really strange because she hardly fits in the chair. LOL
Hi Katy, Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I am sorry but I don't know how to answer your questions I made this hat so long ago and actually sold it so I don't even have it anymore as a reference. Cindy
Thanks Natalie, I would love to see what you are doing with your dinning room and kitchen. It sounds fun. Cindy
Funny you should ask. It has stood up to the cats quite well but I am in the middle of a minor repair required due to the dogzilla's. :-)
Hi Merilyn, I am not sure if I understand your question. But there is a link to the pattern tutorial at the bottom of this post. Hope that helps. Thanks for your comment.
Hi Willow, I used tin snips to cut them. Thanks for stopping by.
Hi Kathie, Yes I used regular cans from soup and vegetables etc.
