1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: magnetic paper dolls (& free pattern) on: December 20, 2010 08:27:25 AM
I got the avery printer sheets (and the adhesive magnet paper) at our local craft store.  But later I saw some printable sheets at staples.  I also noticed that (at least online) staples carries a glossy version, which I think would be nice.  After playing with both sets a bit, I think the adhesive magnet sheets, while a bit more work, are actually better because the magnet part is a little thicker.  The printable magnet sheets are really thin.

maybe run along basting stitch along one outside edge of the ribbon then pull the bobbin threads (to gather) then tie the ends of the threads together so the ribbon makes a circle?  Might be easier to do by hand, you could stitch a long stitch through which would make the gathers bigger?

I've had this happen before, especially with dark denims.  I just keep sewing and then wash the final item well.  Good luck!

I just finished making my magnetic dress up doll & have posted it on my blog.  I think this will make a great stocking stuffer for my daughter.  I love super quick projects and I used printable magnet sheets for these so all I had to do was print and cut out the doll.  
- enjoy, Barbara

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Should I attempt a risky move? on: December 15, 2010 01:57:31 PM
you would probably end up with a very stiff fabric so they would be hard to get on.  i definitely think switching to a fingering weight yarn would be best.  wouldn't want to put in all that work and end up with a bummer result!

I have the nickle knitpicks set and love it!  i think most people find that the longer they knit the more they like metal tips because they are faster to knit with.  starting with the harmony set (wood) might be nice because later you can add metal tips to your stash without spending a lot of money.

Yup, legally she has the option to sell items made from the pattern.  It would be nice if she gave you credit though!  Maybe a nice sounding e-mail to her saying,

hey, great job with these mittens!  i notice they're from my pattern.  I'm so glad you're getting use out of it; would you mind letting people know where the pattern came from?

try the sweet approach first, anyway Smiley
