1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Finishing a fat bottom bag-HELP! :( on: August 07, 2012 07:08:45 AM
 Tongue  I just finished crocheting a fat bottom bag and lining it, as per the instructions in the Stitch and Bitch book and lining instructions on the internet.

My problem is now that I am done with all that, I'm not sure where to put the handles.  There is two long sides and two short sides.  I assumed that the handles were attached to the short sides, but then the bag is not shaped right (with the pleats in front and rounded sides.

Are the handles attached to the long sides and the bag shapes itself into the right shape as I go?

Thank you for your help!

4  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Project Night Night-Has anyone heard of them? Interested? on: February 25, 2012 05:19:55 PM
I've been involved in swaps on Craftster for about a year or two now, but before that, I was heavily involved in volunteering for a charity called:  Project Night Night.  I guess my girls miss helping me with it, b/c they asked me the other day when were we going to do it again!

I was wondering if anybody else on Craftster has heard of this organization, or would be interested in crafting for them?  I thought maybe we could discuss our progress on this thread.

For me...I have two blankets ready.  I need to finish up a blanket I'm making for my younger DD, but then I will be working on more for Project Night Night.

(I am completely computer illiterate, or I would post a link and a photo of what the organization is about.)  But if you Google 'Project Night Night' you can find it there.
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crocheting with t-shirt yarn on: November 13, 2011 08:05:57 AM
Somebody just posted a nifty crocheted bag made out of t-shirt yarn.

I was wondering a few things:  Does it take a lot of t-shirt yarn to make a finished product, such as a medium sized bag?  Is it hard to crochet with t-shirt yarn?  (I've crocheted several times with plarn, and it's killer on the hands!)  What size hook to you use?

If anyone has the answers to these questions, that would be great!  Thanks in advance!
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / How about another round of: 'Craft in your favorite color' swap? on: March 26, 2011 06:20:59 AM
It's been over a year since the last one, and I had a blast!

I thought I would put the idea out here for awhile, and open signups starting May....

Any thoughts?

(This would be round four, BTW...)

Swap crafting requirements:
-1 large
-1 medium
-1 small

You may send more if you and your partner agree to it or if you prefer points.  Use your best judgment when deciding what is enough and what isn't.  Always think about what you would be excited to receive in the mail and craft accordingly.  Discuss with your partner if you would like to "spoil".

When you ship:  Be sure to get delivery confirmation, be sure to PM Miss Barbara and your partner.

When you receive: Be sure to PM me and your partner, be sure to post photos or have your partner post photos.  If you cannot post photos, please make sure your partner agrees to when you receive.

9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / What about another 'Office' swap? on: February 12, 2011 09:25:39 PM
 Grin Shocked  I know that the last (first?) round of this swap was awesome!  I've been watching my DVD's as well as the new episodes that are on every week, and I keep thinking to myself:  "That would be a great swap project!"  I've never organized a swap before, but I could co-org.  Anyone interested?  I hope so!
10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Let's Keep Warm swap on: December 29, 2010 11:55:39 AM
Hi!  Right now 'The Great Coffee Swap' is not going forward temporarily, but I am really excited to get a swap like this started!  Is anyone-including those that were signed up for the other swap-interested in signing up for a similar swap?

My thought was that we could include items that keep us warm in the cold or relate to items we use in the cold weather:  i.e.-hot drinks (coffee, tea, hot chocolate), scarves, lip balm, mittens/gloves/fingerless gloves, hats, mugs, instant soup, packs of fancy travel tissues, etc...

I've never organized a swap but I am willing to co-org if someone is willing to help me thru it!

Whadda ya think? Grin
