1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Can I get some help with a crochet chart 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  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / A League of Their Own Uniform for a Larger Craftster 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  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Jewelry College on: August 13, 2011 08:20:54 AM
So to start off I don't know if this is the exact right place to ask this, so if this isn't I apologize in advance. I am considering getting some sort of certification or degree in jewelry. But given that I like in a small town in maryland my options here are limited. I found out about a program in MICA- Maryland Institute College in and I was wondering if has attended MICA, and more specifically has anyone participated and/or completed the jewelry certificate program there? I am thinking about joining the program but I am trying to see if it is worth it. I intend to look around the campus and get a feel for it, but I was really hoping someone could tell me what the jewelry program and instructors are like. And I was also wondering if there any sort of scholarships for jewelry majors? Any and all information or advice is welcome. Thank You!

7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: Apparently my bones are kind of adorable. on: August 04, 2011 09:00:41 AM
That how I usually do mine...smaller images I print myself, but yea....

Is there an easier way?
I don't know. But given the fact that my printer has a mind of its own (i.e. most of the time it doesn't work correctly) I work with what I have. If anyone does know an easier way please let me in on the secret.

they turned out really well, Ive always loved the look of converse shoes...would you concider making a tutorial or even posting a link to where you saw the project originally if you didnt make the pattern yourself.
Yeah all I did was I combined these two following tutorials:
http://community.livejournal.com/t_shirt_surgery/4482106.html#cutid1

http://www.chezlin.com/oh-my-god-shoes/
And sort of winged it/filled in the blanks from there. In addition to those tutorials, Craft magazine Volume 7 was about shoes and featured the reconstruction of converses in it. But yeah if you want more details, let me know. And I will try and give you more of a detail outline of what I specifically did to make the shoes.

Hee hee. They look great, but lacing them up must be a time consuming endeavour.
You are so true about the lacing. Sadly,during the construction of these shoes I had a total brain fart and forget to sew in the zippers I bought specifically to alleviate the issue of getting in and out of the boots swiftly. Though now I have a system that helps me get in and out pretty quickly, but the first time getting into those things were a nightmare. But now its not a big deal.

Well I have been trying to make myself a pair of these for a while but I finally got around to making and finishing them last week. So while they are not perfect, they were made love and a budget of $20. So yeah, I can live with that. lol. So I give you my new boots!
