1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Fleece hat question? on: November 23, 2014 09:09:15 AM
I am planning to make a few character themed fleece hats for kids holiday gifts. I love the earflap hats, but I want to add the little braids to the flap area, like alot of knitted or crocheted hats have.  Is there a way to do that with the fleece hats? I thought about just punching a little hole in the middle of the flap, but not sure if the yarn/fleece braid would stretch out the hole too much over time? Anyone done this before or seen a tute somewhere that they can share? 
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crocheted details on hats? on: November 19, 2014 06:58:31 PM
Has anyone ever made a basic hat on a knifty knitter, but then used crochet to make accents/details like ears, eyes, etc to make character hats? I am a beginner at crochet, so don't know if I could do hats fast enough or skillfully enough to produce the amount I am wanting to do for Christmas gifts.

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Loom knit infinity scarf on: October 17, 2012 06:22:23 PM
I want to make an infinity scarf on a kk loom.  I have made short cowls on the round looms, but for this I want to make a scarf on the long looms, then attach the ends to make it circular.  Do you think I could knit the basic scarf using one side of the long loom, then bring up the cast on edge to the last row (like making a brim on a hat) and knit off, then just bind off??  Do you think the seam this procedure will leave would be super noticeable? Any other ideas on how to join the ends inconspicuously?
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Sewing with your embroidery piece on: February 04, 2011 09:50:48 AM
I am finishing up an embroidery piece that I want to turn into a paperback book cover.  The tutorial/pattern has the fabric interfaced to give it a little stability.  Is it ok to use iron on interfacing on the embroidery?  I have only done 3 embroideries before and never sewn them into anything, so I'm not sure how to go about it.  Thanks!

7  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / QAYG? Paper piecing on: January 13, 2011 05:32:31 PM
Is it possible to "quilt as you go" with a paper pieced block?  I am want to start on my first "traditional" quilt (not rag quilt), but I really like the quilt as you go with rag quilting.  Links to helpful tute?


 Thanks,
Lydia
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Need help with felt "frosting" on: October 22, 2010 11:20:06 AM


I need help duplicating the frosting on these cupcakes.  I have tried gathering the felt like making a ruffle, and just folding and twirling it into a circle.  Neither one worked.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Grin

9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Painting veneered/laminated "wood" on: July 10, 2010 07:25:09 AM
I got a bedroom suite from my SIL that is pretty ugly, but I really like the shapes and DS needs furniture.  Cheesy  It is veneered/laminated particle board, black with gold trim and I want (need) to paint it. 

Can I use the spray paint that Krylon makes for plastic?  Would this work in a kids bedroom and hold up?  I am thinking yes, since it is an indoor/outdoor paint.  Also, the paint says that you don't have to prime, just kind of lightly sand the surface to get rid of the sheen, clean off the dust, and spray.  Anyone done this?

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / What style do you think this rug is? on: July 01, 2010 02:55:04 PM
I have this rug for my dining area/kitchen, but I'm not sure what style it goes with.  I am thinking that I wanna go with an elcetic mix of french country, shabby chic, and country cottage styles.  Think this rug would fit in or should I get rid of it and find something different??

This is the border (with my hand for size comparison) and the middle tan colored blocks


This is another border shot continuing the fruit pattern



Thanks
