11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: not so plain T shirt on: January 18, 2015 04:01:25 PM
Rick Owens makes this one. A Google image search will show you his designs. I don't see where he sells his patterns, though. He has some very unique clothing. This one is a bias cut shirt. The bias is what gives it the drapey look. Takes more fabric to make, and is best with the 60" wide fabrics. Depending on how large you are.

Rayons and other 100% poly blends work good. No cotton. It just does not have the "shift" that you need.

Here is something similar that maybe you can adapt.

Hope I have helped.

Quote: "First, two bird ladies, the parrot is sharing more than she should:"  Grin *Chuckling* You probably already know it, but birds don't nurse. Very interesting ATC's. You may have inspired my additional small for my Box of Color swap  Grin

Oh, but mine won't have honkers.

Your hand lettering is beautiful. I am envious. I like your backgrounds and colors, too. My fave is the pastel one at the bottom picture.

14  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Magic Yarn Ball Swap Round 17 (SO 2/23/2015) on: January 17, 2015 10:08:52 AM
For organizing, I get the boxes from the post office for free. I cut the wide side with leaving little triangle panels in the corners so they will stack and not fall into each other. I can paste paper on the side to label them. I get the regular size that is about 3" tall. Flat rate, I think they call them. Priority Mail.

I just added more goodies to my yarn ball box. Dang. How will I fit it all together? From what I have seen they are supposed to look a bit wonky. Just wrap and stab, eh? This will be one of the craziest swaps I have had so far  Grin Still looking for the center...I think it might be a Christmas ball. Everyone can use an extra one of those, right??

Well, surprisingly, I am ahead of the crowd. I finished my medium/large...and I want to keep it  Cheesy But it will go to a good home, and I really think my partner will like it. And it helped me destash some materials in the process.

I am working today to collect supplies for the smalls. I forgot that there are three. I was only planning two. And some spoils. Good thing I check my notes  Roll Eyes But plenty of time. I can't wait to see the gallery, and what everyone gets to play with.

I did some color studies, and no...lime is not the same as neon green. So I changed up my _____ project and undid it, with a better color for that in place. It looks much nicer. And I added more paint, too. I love the sparkles. This one is looking loverly.

17  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: 15 Quilt Projects in 2015 on: January 15, 2015 08:37:50 AM
Beautiful quilt. I would outline the diamonds for the pictures. If you are hand quilting it, I would then think that interesting things would look good in the diamonds next to them. Hard to tell, but one I could see could be "sisters", another one could be hearts. That sort or thing. Or the diagonal of the diamonds might look good, too. Just to run up an down parallel sideways with the "squares". Ideas.

Just to add my two cents... I give my quilts away, too. Though I have never made a large one. Just wall hangings and baby crib size. I did make a full size blanket out of old jean panels. But I don't count that a quilt exactly. That one I still have. It was all my favorite jeans that lost their life for their intentions. But works great for picnicks in the yard  Grin

Yeah for the purple bus  Grin My partner wishes for darkish pink {no pastel} and lime green. I've been having trouble with the green. Is there a difference between lime and neon green? I think I need to go to the produce mart. Or the paint center. A bit more research for this project. But the __________ I made turned out grand. I added a little more paint color to it last night. I am sure it falls into her wishes.

Don't you wish we could write in invisible ink?  Cheesy

Yeah to using up some fancy teas  Cheesy I will have to dump that into my 'next up' box for this swap. I have some small bottle/sample skin lotions, too. Unopened. Leftovers that you grab at the motel. Cheesy

Great ideas. Sorry, but my ball just got bigger than a box  Roll Eyes And the yarn is not even in there yet. This is my first yarn ball. I am still learning. But having fun doing it.

Aww. sweetie...destash on me, dinkime  Grin. Don't buy extra. You can use grapefruit juice to dye things purple  Grin Or purple onion skins. I love tie dye.

I had to sit through two tutorials today to learn a new craft for your medium project. But I maxed it at try number two  Cheesy And I am liking things with just a bit paint touch-ups. Your other two will be no-brainers. I hope  Roll Eyes
