991  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: love to sew....hate the aftermath on: December 05, 2004 02:38:46 PM
I have a tendency to stop with whatever I'm doing if something goes wrong. Sometimes I'm really stubborn and keep sewing that seam until it does what I want it to, but sometimes, for no reason at all I just quit in the middle of things...like the petticoat that ALMOST finished. Or the pants I've been working on since this july.
Somehow it's always the stuff I'm making for myself that goes into the hiding of the wardrobe(...where it lies ashamed 'til I get a grip on myself and make something new out of it, for someone else....)
I'm simply LOUSY on making the most ordinary thing for myself (give me a gown with a corset and I'll make it anyday)
I guess I'm just funny that way Smiley
AND, I guess everyone has their wardrobes full of almost finished items...at least I tell that to my conscience. Smiley
992  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: beaded rosette ring with crystals. on: December 05, 2004 11:09:21 AM
A copy is never the same as the real thing though, since the beads are different, the colourdesign and of course also the technique...
As long as there aren't any tutes there is no chance possible that I can copy that EXACTLY as it is, but I think this place is a place for inspiration and ideas, more than a place simply to show off.

Thanks for the link. I'll check it up.

Thanks. The only problem there is the space between me (in Gothenburg, Sweden) and the nearest Jo ann's Smiley
I'll figure it out though. There has to be fabricpaint here to...

995  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: knitted gifts for little kids?? on: December 03, 2004 08:19:25 AM
I've knitted hats for little girls. Just go with your imagination and make sure that the end measures about 52 cm in diameter.
I know just about NO knittingterms in english so I'm afraid I'm pretty useless, but I know little caps are appreciated in the winter.
Knitted socks and doll-clothing and mittens are also welcome.
Socks should measure about 10 cm from toe to heal at that age, but it's always better to make them a little bitt longer.
Anyway. Both socks, toys, and caps are easy and fast projects.
Good luck!

Soooo cute!
998  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: beaded rosette ring with crystals. on: December 03, 2004 08:06:19 AM
Really cute. I've made about a zillion beadrings, but none like that. Now I have to copy it Smiley
But don't worry, since I live in Sweden we won't run into eachother that easily.
Nice work!
999  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Making Your Own Corset? on: November 28, 2004 07:46:55 AM
I've made a couple of corsets. We've been using custommade patterns, but if you're relatively small I bet you can use Simplicitys vintagepatterns.
You can also make a pattern out of an old t-shirt and ducktape (not sure about the spellng there)and a friend you trust to see you in stupid situations.

Anyway. You simply put on the t-shirt (preferrably a tight one) and then you have your friend wrap you in ducktape from beneath the breasts and as far down as you'd like. When you're ready you simply cut it open (with a bit of causion of course) in the front.
You then have to split it into two parts. Then you take one of those parts and split it into 4, and there you have your pattern.
Just remember to curve the parts in the waistline.
This will make a nice corset for clubbing, but not for waisttraining, but I suppose waisttraining is a completely other forum Smiley
When you sew it, make sure to make it in at least 4 layers. Some really stiff fabric inte the middle, a nice silk, or pvc or something for the outer layer and soft cotton for the innerlayer.
You could use a zipper in the front with this pattern since it's not supposed to be tightlaced.
