21  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Potholders you can use! Now with link! on: July 17, 2010 10:08:14 AM
I've seen patterns for potholders but was always afraid to try them.  Now that I know others use them and don't get burned, maybe I'll give it a try! 

Now I just need to find a pattern for a potholder mitten.  I'm a little klutzy so I like to have the top of my hand protected too, in case I bump the other shelf inside the oven!
I know this is an old post, but I thought I'd share a pattern for an oven mitt that uses Helena's Potholder Stitch that milksmom linked to in the original post.  It works really well and you won't burn your hand.

I absolutely LOVE this dress, and would love to make it, but before I stress myself out in the process I was wondering what bra can be worn with this dress? I have a 30G bust so my bra options are pretty limited... Please someone tell me it is possible  Undecided
MonifC shows you how to wear a similar dress WITH a bra on her site:

Anyone know of a tutorial or pattern for a lunch bag like this one? Thanks for your help!

Even though the directions are for oilcloth and quilted fabrics, I'm sure you can use whatever you want.

i know it's smack dab in the middle of summer (we are at 100+ during the day here) but i get chilly at night when hubby turns the cooler waaaaaay high, so i was going to make this shrug:
anyone want to join me?

The original site is gone, but the pattern can still be retrieved.

Is it just me... or are those photos totally NOT potholders...?
It's not you.  They USED to be pictures of potholders; I'm not sure where they've gone off to.  I had a printed copy of this tutorial, but I don't remember where it is. Sad

Hi there!
Last week I did these two cases....I saw this idea in an art street market and I just made it. The most difficult thing is calculating where do you must to sew the beginning of the zipper because it will determine the width and the length of your case. If you have that clear the sewing matter is quite simple.
My first creation was the toilet kit. This was made by denim in the outside and by white cotton fabric in the inside.
My second creation, the glasses case, was made by leather and the lining was polar (this fabric is very soft so I thought it would be perfect for the glasses).
I hope you like my cases. If you made some of them, please show it to me!
Thanks for reading!!
When I saw this post, I immediately thought of this tutorial on Creadoo.  My German is a little rusty, so I couldn't really translate it (and I was never very good at reading it anyway), but the pictures should give some clue as to how it all goes together.

Please share with me an easy bag that I can make, following instructions from this site.  I would like to print it out and go to town with it.

Thank you so much for any help sent my way.

Happy Crafting.
It's not from Craftster, but the With Love Tote tutorial is super easy (only 3 pieces) and it's lined! 
If you want to have boxed corners, read this page as well:  Tutorial: Box the Bottom Corners of a Bag

There used to be a PDF of it all, but it's gone now.

p.s. i can't seem to embed photos from my flickr into my posts properly. Sad when i grab the html from the "Share This" menu it ends up just posting all the code instead. i'm no expert, but as far as i can recall from what i learned during my myspace profile personalization days, pasting the html code of a picture is supposed to embed it, right? should i be doing something differently?
Another quick and dirty solution is to right click on the images, go to "Properties", and copy the image URL.  Use that in the <IMG>link</IMG> code (with [] in place of <>).  If you use Firefox, you can right click on the image, choose "Copy Image Location", and proceed as before.  This may not be within Flickr's rules; so, check before you do it.
