1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Looking For Pattern? Ask here! on: September 16, 2013 08:25:28 AM
Does anyone know of where I can find out how to knit a cable pattern similar to this one on the side of the chest, with the thin interweaving lines?  It's a sweater from Anthropologie - http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/product/clothes-new/29086378.jsp

I'm thinking it would look great in a worsted or bulky weight yarn as well - maybe as a modification to the Knitty Beatnik pattern.  Any help would be much appreciated!

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / three artsy patchwork tote bags on: June 23, 2009 12:38:08 PM
A ton of my friends have their birthdays/graduation parties within the same week.  So this morning I went into working overdrive - and sewed these totes for four of them.  I would make one for all of my friends, but it's so much cutting and piecing with all this patchwork! too exhausting.

and here they are. please tell me which one is your favorite!
The reverse sides are solid fabric or stripes (saves on labor)







the obligatory artsy shot


look! handpainted name tags!

.
A hand-embroidered, buttoned jumper dress - made from a remnant and shreds of an old nightgown

A gingham blouse - from a dress that fit me as a toddler

a little embroidered and beaded zip pouch - from some old cargo pants and a fat quarter for the lining.


some bedazzled converse sneakers (previously they had a little piratey skull on the side which was a bit too goth for me)

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / fabric scraps + stray beads = artsy charm bracelet on: June 22, 2008 08:22:02 AM
I was glad to at last find a use for all my stray bits of cloth, random curlicues of wire, ribbon roses etc.  The baubles were pretty easy to make; I followed this tutorial: blog:http://girl-gone-thread-wild.blogspot.com/2007/03/make-fabric-beads-dont-throw-away-your.html
and then I just sewed the beads onto the chain links.  It's a little outrageous - maybe they're destined to be buttons on purses instead?

5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / fabric bound journals with buttoned flaps - boring school notes begone! on: June 22, 2008 08:09:09 AM
I love the look of fabric covered notebooks and I figured they couldn't be that hard to make.  Here's my version:



and another made from scraps of old clothing and remnant flannel (I made the button too out of fabric snippets and stray beads):



i love floral fabrics!

do you need to have a special machine or thread to do shirring???

No need for a special sewing machine, but you do need to buy elastic thread (sometimes called shirring elastic) and there's a tut for it already here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=49544.0
happy sewing!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Retro paisley and sage twill revamped into summer dress on: June 15, 2008 10:34:58 AM
Thankfully the stretch stitch on my machine was working today! :- ) the neckline is still a little lumpy, but i'll wear it anyway.  For the patter I traced over a shirt I had and just extended the hem.
