Before I spend lots of money, can someone please help? i want to sew fused plastic and commercial banners on an industrial Singer. Can you get teflon feet for industrials? I can't find any in here in Australia. With an industrial, is it even necessary to get a teflon foot? All answers greatly appreciated - I have no idea where to start!
I'm so inspired by everything craftster user recycledcindy does. Here are my crochet plastic bag shopping bags, based on a recent pattern she posted. I love the colours available, and it's so much fun to do. Sorry about the photos - batteries running low, and I'm not the greatest photographer (no patience, hee hee)
This is my first attempt at crocheting a picture; it looks okay, I think.
Hi I'm very very excited, I live in Australia and i'm going to Tokyo in March 2009 for 5 days with my girlfriend and 2 teenage sons. I looove Japanese retro fabrics, and craft books. You have the most amazing books I've ever seen!. Can anyone recommend craft/book shops and things I need to see on my trip (apart from Ghibli Museum and Puroland - already on my list)
i am in awe of the cross stitch ninja, and found this link on her website and I'm sorry, I don't know what it is, but if you google it you'll find it. My photo is a bit blurry, but i cannot believe that an almost monochromatic stencil can come out so good as a cross stitch. I'm so inspired, I've been walking round the city taking photos, and working out how to do a cross stitch graffitti piece! Here's my banksy, and sorry again that there's no link, but you can find it easily enough.
So I crocheted heaps of granny spquares from plastic bags, and couldn't work out what to do with them. Crochet gals on the Crochet page suggested a bag, I found a really cool pattern on the crochetalong page, and here is what I made. It took 127 plastic bags, and my fingers are still aching, but I loooove it, and its so strong.
Do you need an oulet for your offbeat, retro and slightly kooky one of a kinds? We are holding the the inaugural slightly twisted craft market in Warburton (1 1/2 hr east of Melbourne, very scenic, you can swim in the Yarra with platypuses) on Cup Day, Tuesday November 4. Stalls are really cheap, $10, and it will be lots of fun - we have a dj, bbq and liquor licence, so we can sit in the sun drinking and crafting. PM me or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info and application form.
I've been playing with plastic bags, it's so much fun. Here's a picture of some flowers I made:
and here's a thing - I don't know what else to call it, and I don't know what to do with it, but it's lots of granny squares crocheted together. It's like a quilt, but not very practical! Any ideas for a finished projected would be happily accepted!!
The 9" X 5" Quality Makers Market is on 2nd sunday of the month at Banyule Arts Space, Ivanhoe, Victoria, Australia. Showcasing work of local crafted "North of the Yarra" artisans. For more info or stallholder application form, please check www.banyule.vic.gov.au/arts
;)I posted this a little while ago, and then saw the challenge, so I think it's still relevant to enter. I was at home sick, and everything hurt, and I cut myself on a tissue (had the flu, you know when even your fingernails hurt?) and I was thinking about an argument I'd recently had, and the whole world was against me. boo hoo!
So I decided to do something about it, while watching Oprah of course. here's some pics of my (well my girlfriend's) crocheted vagina tissue box cover. It's all pink and soft and silky and you want to touch it, and I had lots of fun making it. take that, ex-girlfriend!
