2  Re: Making your own halloween costume-along.. in Halloween Costumes by socomfyhere on: October 08, 2005 08:39:35 AM
I am trying to make my costume this year--I want to be a flapper (modernized a little to suit my taste) and I drew a picture of the way I want it to look: (sorry, I had to scan it and then mess w/ contrast a little bit)

And I looked up the materials on good ole fabric.com, I can get enough fabric and matching thread (in a pretty burgundy-orchid color) for about $13.  I already have the fringe, but it is white. I have a predicament:  I don't want to buy more fringe, but I don't have a good pair of white shoes to wear w/ the costume.  I have a pair of cute sandals, but it is varsity swim season and I can't shave my legs.  Therefore, I must wear stockings, and it feels tacky to wear sandals w/ stockings.  Predicament:  shoes? black fringe?  What to do?

3  Sweet Sparkly Laprobe in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by socomfyhere on: July 24, 2005 09:46:17 PM
My friend's surprise 17th birthday party is tomorrow, and I had this yard-ish of clearance sequiny fabric, so I decided to make her a blanket (logical, the middle of July, but anyway).  So I went to Wal-Mart and got some blanket binding and black fleece.  Now it's not really a full size blanket, more of a lap-robe.  I don't really know anyone who actually uses lap-robes anymore, but it's very nice for sitting at the computer and probably for bus rides as well.  It kind of reminds me of that glove or sock of Michael Jackson's back in the day (I forget which it was)  Anyway, in all its imperfect glory:



And on my lap:

pps- what kind of yarn did you use? it's beautiful!



I'm pretty sure that this yarn is Noro Silk Garden in http://www.yarnmarket.com/images/art_ACF8061.jpg (205) or http://www.yarnmarket.com/images/art_ACF8047.jpg (74).

Good stuff.

So I posted this dress idea a while ago and now I need some input.  I just got the fabric for my dress (the purple version in the drawing, even though the fabric is actually blue).  I was wondering what sort of shape I should do for the skirt tiers.  Circle skirts on top of each other would probably be too bulky, so I was thinking, like graduated trapezoids.  Any suggestions?

These are the two dresses I am considering making:

I just got the pattern for the first one in the mail today.  It is Simplicity 4943 and I got it for $5 on eBay so I'm not totally committed.  That one would be much more difficult and expensive to make, but so much "prommier" as someone said about an earlier post.

The second one would be much easier to make (those black lines are white fringe--20's ish Grin) and I think the fact that it is less formal would make my date (aaah I can't get over it--*date!*) a little more comfortable.

9  two spankin new hats in Knitting: Completed Projects by socomfyhere on: March 04, 2005 09:34:05 PM
I've been a busy little chickadee the last few weeks, making up these hat patterns.  I am not completely happy with either one, but I'll post 'em anyway!

Here's the first one I made:


Unfortunately that was the best pic I could come up with.  The hat is really black, stockinette with a garter border, I just lightened it a bit in the solo shot in order to see the stitches.  It comes to a point at the top (earning it the name of 'weinie hat' from a friend of mine.  (As unlikely as it may seem, this friend who still uses the word 'weinie' is actually 17--not 9)).  Plus the garter stitch at the bottom is a lot looser than I like on a hat.  My little brother wears it now.

Here's the second:


Note the strategic camera in front of the face pose.  So for this one I did bobble stitches the whole way around one time, and I thought it was going to be great.  However, the decrease rows ended up taking a lot less space than I expected and this is a much shorter hat than I was going for.

Honestly, both hats were learning experiences--but man, I would kill to be one of those people who does stuff perfectly on his/her first try.

now I know this is somewhat pixellated, but you could probably just cut smoothly when you exacto it, if you like.  I'm not entirely sure why it is so small, it looked a lot bigger when I made it.  You could probably just cut and paste it into paint and Stretch/Skew it by 200% or so.  I hope this is what you were looking for.
