1  Can I get some help with a crochet chart in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by sk8rkat14 on: February 10, 2015 10:19:12 AM
So as usual I avoided doing my homework by spending too much time on pinterest when I saw this and decided I needed to make it. But given my "luck" the pattern is provided on a site written spanish and the pattern is done in chart form. I can do simple scarves in chart form but I have never done a garment by chart. I don't know how to figure out how much I need to chain for the top. I don't want to make anyone go piece by piece over this for me, but if anyone could tell me of a site or video that provides in depth information on how to read a chart for a pattern I would  be grateful. Thank you

2  A League of Their Own Uniform for a Larger Craftster in Costumes: Discussion and Questions by sk8rkat14 on: August 21, 2013 05:03:26 AM
So I am thinking about going as a Rockford Peach player from the A League of Their Own (which I do realize was based on a real life team).
But my issue is trying to find a sewing pattern for a Rockford Peach Uniform that could fit someone sized 20/22. I am pretty much a basic/moderate level of sewing so extreme modifications or adjustments kind of scare me. I am willing to settle for a pattern that just has the correct kind of collar and skirt and just wing with the buttons as long as it is in my size. Does anyone have any advice or tips? Thanks in advance! Also here is a photo for reference:

5  Apparently my bones are kind of adorable. in Stenciling: Completed Projects by sk8rkat14 on: June 24, 2011 02:34:01 PM
So I am going to give the credit where it is do first and foremost, applenoggin(on etsy) created this adorable shirt. So of course the shirt sizes wouldn't reach my plus sizeness. So I decided that I would make myself this shirt. And though it is filled with imperfections for my 2nd time with dabbling with stencils, I am pretty pleased. So now you can feast you eyes on the crappy camera phone picture goodness!




And here is the original shirt created by applenoggin

6  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Headband in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by sk8rkat14 on: May 15, 2011 06:52:25 PM
So I have a great love of modcloth.com And I recently fell in love with this headbandSo I measured out the average size and such of a headband, but I guess I am having trouble figuring out how to make the chart of the image and make it applicable to my size or whatever.And as usual this headband is long gone. I guess my question is how do I being to start this project. I have always been a pattern follower and not much of a pattern maker. Or would it just be a better idea to make a headband base and just embroider the logo? Any thoughts comments, or hints are especially welcomed. Thank you.

7  Question About Lace in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by sk8rkat14 on: May 09, 2011 06:49:33 AM
So yeah I am attempting to make this betsey johnson dress:
But an issue I am running into is getting the lace. As you can see in this picture
the lace is kind of scalloped and wide. I went to a store and found lace that was about 5 inches wide and scalloped, but since I didn't have all the money I decided to come back later. I came back later and the shop was now closed and out of business. Angry So yeah I was just wondering especially if anyone knows where I can get relatively cheap lace the I just described. I would prefer a store but I am willing to buy it on line. And if anyone lives in the maryland/washington county md area your advice would be greatly appreciated as well.

8  Re: Need instructions for skull necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by sk8rkat14 on: May 02, 2011 04:42:50 AM
Well there are a lot of ways to go with this. You could do like day of the dead skulls, so they're kind of colorful and funky. But a question you may want to ask is do you want human skulls or animals skull. And wow that sentence was not meant to sound that creepy. lol But yeah here are some images, given what your skill level is or whatever you could try to replicate these.
Imagine the bird in some sort of silver or deep blue.



The last one is actually accents on top of a dress, you can still get some cool ideas from that.
You could also search the web, or your local bead stores for skull beads or whatever. Or if you are comfortable enough you could make the charms yourself. Here have a tutorial: http://www.spazzticcrafts.com/make-skull-charms.php
But ya, when all else fails just let google be your friend. lol
