Those are super cute!

I have to say, reversible is a pain in the rear! I made some reversible fleece pants for my one year old...needless to say, there was a fair amount of cursing and seam ripping...

Very nice...can I ask what else you would do differently...just wondering in case I wanted to tackle these for my son.  Smiley

I would be afraid a metal sink would react somehow with the dye you would be using...but I have no clue if that is true.

I know you mentioned finding a source outside of Henry's Attic - but I have to say, I went in on a very large order with an ebay buddy once...and got a damned good deal on a ton of yarn from there - much of which I am still skeining up and dying. It was a few years ago, so I am not sure if they have changed in pricing or wholesale ordering.

I do know that the cotton chenille sells really well for me (anything that resembles Colinette yarn sells well for me) both as skeined yarn and knit up as sweaters or scarves etc.

I am also a www.dharmatrading.com fan for dyes and really trust them - I have not tried their yarn, however, I do think their shirts etc are way overpriced.

Just my 2 cents Smiley

Those are absolutely adorable! What a great idea!

I had the same situation with tons of receiving blankets with my son, now one year old. Since I make quilts for all my baby shower gifts, I decided what a better way to 1. use all the blankets and 2. create an extra special homemade hand-me-down quilt. Now, I just need to decided who to pass it down to - I am thinking of waiting for my sister to have her first Smiley
135  UNITED STATES / Maine / Re: So how many people here are from Maine? on: October 15, 2007 05:48:08 PM
I am a new member to Craftster...tho, not a new person to the board - just never joined. I am in Warren and work in Rockland with my husband and one year old son.

I would love love love to start up a Maine craft group - some friends and I had one going here in the Midcoast but we disbanded due to friends moving out of the area.

If anyone is interested, email me...maggi@magpiecreative.com.
