41  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Looking for free sewing patterns for a plus size lady on: July 06, 2012 06:34:52 AM
I think the McCall's patterns website offers a plus-size tank as one of the free downloads its members can get. It's a free membership.

HotPatterns offers free downloads from time to time, and I have seen a tee-shirt in the past.

Try looking for a free online pattern called Sorbetto. I've seen lots of nice tops made from it. It's sleeveless, but someone made a pattern for sleeves for it. Not sure how big it goes, but it's so simple in style it ought to be easy to enlarge it.

I like the binding on your pockets.

Maybe I should paint this on my husband's underpants. Or tattoo it on his backside. Cheesy

One thing I'm curious about:
...it has served me well in the potato-couture area...
Potato couture? Is that something you wear while you're cooking potatoes?

It's great seeing all the crafty activity. I nominate the cute little baby with the Aubergine Hooter badge as the unofficial summer school mascot. Cheesy  I also think Florean Fortescue's ice cream shop should see about buying the rights to sell Rossie's magical purple ice cream.

I'm slowly working on my Arithmancy project, myself, while trying not to think about how much time I would need to spend in detention with Snape to use up my stash. Also hoping my yarn for this project holds up and I don't have to add to the stash.

46  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Fleck Yarn on: June 14, 2012 06:20:26 PM
I usually like the look of "fleck" yarns (yarns with little slubs or strands of different colored fibers in them to make a tweedy look), but I have almost no experience with them. How do these type yarns hold up to washing? Do they shed? Would they be unsafe in something meant for a toddler to wear?

Class: Transfiguration
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: A Probably-Not-Approved-by-Professor-McGonagall Post

Brief Description & Project Pictures: I transfigured two old tops.

An old blue tee-shirt with a stain became a new pair of simple underpants in Ravenclaw blue. Probably the only interesting thing about them is that there's no elastic in the crotch. I've taken to sometimes leaving leg elastic out of the crotch area, as it not only saves elastic, but feels kind of light and airy.


A secondhand knit shirt in an unflattering shade of red that I was given became underpants with a subtle message for the only person who ever sees my underpants in RL.

Sadly that picture makes me think of an old Groucho Marx bit where he speaks to Margaret Dumont of his vision of them in their little dream home: "I can see you bending over the stove--but I can't see the stove." Embarrassed
49  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Crochet in Fiction (Movies, TV, Books) on: May 30, 2012 02:57:33 PM
I've been watching Kingdom and one time when the Stephen Fry character visits his aunt in the old folks home, there's a lot of crocheted items spread about and he is holding yarn for her, but there's knitting needles sticking out of some yarn or a basket nearby, no crochet hooks. We see crocheted afghans on another visit or two, but no one is ever crocheting.  I wonder why it is more common to see tv/movie characters knitting than to see them crocheting.

I once saw a guy in the French Quarter of New Orleans wearing a vest made of Crown Royal bags. Not as stylish as that dress in the link, but it took a lot fewer bags.
