1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Hat made from something quite unorthodox, (check it out) on: July 08, 2007 01:09:08 PM
Awesome!  I hit this rocks too. The paisley on top has to be the sexiest part.  Nice work, soldier!

That's beautiful!!  I love the color combo, and the pattern's adorable.  She's going to love it.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Aran Island Mittens from Folk Mittens on: July 06, 2007 05:30:27 AM
Aran Island Mittens from Folk Mittens by Marcia Lewandowski. My last completed knitting project!  They only took me about a month, but before you get disgusted, you should know that I was pregnant and seriously milking it.  They're my first attempt at mittens (uuugh, thumbs suck!) and my second attempt at cabling.  If you can't tell, I like the deep end.  Oh, and I chose green (lamb's pride worsted) instead of natural white because I touch filthy things in the winter time.  And I'm a nonconformist.  And I like things to match my eyes.  Roll Eyes

Hmm, I hadn't thought of that, thanks!  I'm usually a strict sewing machine/knitting needles kinda girl, but this is proving to be a serious, serious addiction.  Roll Eyes

They're so pretty!  I have a big monster snap press (capable of eating small dogs and children) and it makes life so much easier.  You can change out the dyes for different sizes and types, and it's really fast.  You should get one.  Then you'd be a snapping fiend like me!

Aw, thanks guys!  Black ones would be awesome.  I've been looking for black minky for red poppies, but I think I'ma just have to order it.  Bummer!

OK, so this is a bit of a no-brainer, but I just joined and figured I'd contribute something.  So there! Tongue

Here comes the tutorial, ready?

You need:

Silk flower(s)
Coordinating fabric(s)
Dritz covered button kit in size of your choice (I got this 3/4" in Joann)
Needle nosed pliars
Hot glue gun + glue
Skissers
Fabric pen/pencil for tracing
Clip of your choice (spring, bendy, bobby pin, etc)

And helpful (albeit thoroughly confused) assistant, of course

Step 1: Ruin the flowers (this is my favorite part)
http://www.longwinterfarm.com/alnaroad/gallery/data/media/20/DSCF4478.JPG

Step 2: Glue leaf to the underside of the bottom petal set
http://www.longwinterfarm.com/alnaroad/gallery/data/media/20/DSCF4479.JPG

Step 3: Glue clip to leaf
http://www.longwinterfarm.com/alnaroad/gallery/data/media/20/DSCF4480.JPG

Step 4: Start gluing petal sets one at a time, making sure the center holes match up
http://www.longwinterfarm.com/alnaroad/gallery/data/media/20/DSCF4482.JPG

Step 5: Trace and cut out some fabric petal sets (I did 2 for this one)

http://www.longwinterfarm.com/alnaroad/gallery/data/media/20/DSCF4488.JPG

Step 6: Continue adding petal sets until you're reasonably happy

Step 7: Complain about all the glue on your thumb ("#%$@&!!!")
http://www.longwinterfarm.com/alnaroad/gallery/data/media/20/DSCF4492.JPG

Step 8: Cut out a circle of fabric for your center button (I used minky, but you can use whatever.  Don't worry, the kits come with a template on the back.)
http://www.longwinterfarm.com/alnaroad/gallery/data/media/20/DSCF4493.JPG

Step 9: Place the fabric over the white plastic mold, and stuff the button dome into the center
http://www.longwinterfarm.com/alnaroad/gallery/data/media/20/DSCF4495.JPG

Step 10: Remove the hook from the button back
http://www.longwinterfarm.com/alnaroad/gallery/data/media/20/DSCF4494.JPG

Step 11: Tuck the fabric into the button, put the back in place, and pop it into place with the blue plastic button back popper thing.  (If you're using minky and are a wuss like me, you'll have to put the whole ensemble under a couch leg and jump on the couch.)

Step 12: Glue the button to the center of the flower...

...Tada!  I even frayed the edges of the fabric for some extra funk after taking that last pic.  Oh, and please excuse my finger toes! Roll Eyes
