1  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / queen of hearts bikini just the top :) on: October 19, 2008 06:12:41 PM
so i attempted to make the top part for the bikini using the pattern in the SnB book and it came out too big and i'm tiny(i made the small size) so i gave it to my friend (she's a 36 d!!!) and she loved it so i tried tweaking it a lil bit and it came out soo good i made 3 lol i only have a pic for the pink one tho. I used to wear it with every  revealing top i had Tongue and people loved it i dont kno how i managed to alter the sizing because i did this awhile back and i cant even remember how to cast on anymore lol. well enough chit chat heres the pic:

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / my brand new glam plugs [earrings] on: July 28, 2005 07:15:45 PM
I made these because i was a 'lil bored with my plain old tunnels. I have my ears stretched to a size 0 [zero] and 0 sized plugs are 8mm, sooo I bought these beads [the label on  them said they were jade... hot pink jade?!?! oh well] and threaded some wire through them and inserted hot  pink beads through the wire, and I also incorporated the little fur ball that were from some old earrings my sis had lying around. Then I put them on only to find that they were to heavy in the front and made them fall out, so I added a chain to the back using those metal circles that are used to join jewelry together, whew what a long story... here's the pics

thanx to my xboyfriend for those super high res pictures  Tongue
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / twisty top with *TUTORIAL* fixed links MAJOR APOLOGIES!!!! on: July 25, 2005 01:14:13 AM
ok so i saw this top   http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/images/us/local/products/productsall/p179841b.jpg    and I fell in love but I was not crazy about spending $38 for something so simple besides what's the fun in that
so this is what i came up with


i tried to use this tute: http://www.livejournal.com/community/t_shirt_surgery/1664014.html but it always came out wrong, so I adapted it [cuz I suck at following tutes]
here's the lil' how to:








**cut one backpiece [make sure it's about 3" longer than the two front pieces], two fronts and two strips about 3" with  the shape illustrated above. you can use an old shirt for measurements or measure yourself.
please excuse my terrible english.
1-grab the two strips and sew them onto the inner corner of each front piece.

2-lineup the two strips with the front pieces. if everything's ok, move on to step 3

3-twist those strips till they're lined up again with the front pieces.

4-sew the strips to the front pieces and now you have one full piece

5-grab the backpiece and sew it to the front piece. you're done!

*NOTE
I used stretchy knit fabric so I didn't need to hem it [it was all I had anyway] But you can use anything you want.

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / interfacing HELL!!!! on: May 16, 2005 02:58:22 PM
I decided to give interfacing a try. I cut it to shape [tote bag], ironed it on and started sewing, but the interfacing constantly got stuck on my machine and made my needle all gooey. in order to finish the bag I had to spray WD-40[?!?!?!] so the interfacing could glide in the machine. I bought a roll of Heatbond iron on interfacing. What am I doing wrong??

Help greatly appreciated,
Joanna.
