2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Need swallow tattoo pic to screen on: July 04, 2005 11:23:22 AM
Hey lovely craftsters,
I've seen some cool swallow tattoo stencils, but have not been able to find one to use for a silk screen.  Does anyone know where to find one to use?
I'm just looking for something like this:


I'm NOT trying to have the exact same image...just some variation to work with...

Thanks a gizillion for any possible help!!!!

Here it is:



I used the pattern from here www.sheepinthecity. prettyposies.com/archives/000079.html and a lovely hand dyed yarn from handpaintedyarn.com!  The dying is random, but ended up making almost an argyle pattern!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / my cabley hoodie on: March 07, 2005 12:22:09 PM
I recently finished my version of knitty's bpt:

The pattern is here:
http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall03/PATTbpt.html

I really loved this pattern and can recommend it because:
  • you knit the whole thing in one piece...no seaming!
  • the cables are easy--I'm very new to cables and found them easy to do.
  • the pattern is easy to follow once you get going.  And tons of people have already knit it, so there's lots of help on blogs
  • I think it's a great cardigan hoodie pattern and it's free!
I used pagoda from handpaintedyarn.com and love the color variations!  Wink

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My felted bag of many colors! on: December 03, 2004 11:48:03 AM
I'm really happy with how this turned out.  My lovely friend got me some Manos variegated yarn for my birthday a while ago, and I finally got it together to make it into a messenger like bag (due to lots of time on an airplane!)



I just made up the pattern.  Did a garter stitch bottom, picked up stitches around the sides and knitted around and around on circular needles to the top! I kept four markers to keep the sides/front/back stitches separate, and when I got to the top, I bound off the front stitches, put one side on a holder, and knitted the strap from the other side stitches in garter stitch.  When the strap was the right length, I did a three needle bind-off with the other side stitches.  Then I knitted a flap from the back stitches.  I hate sewing stuff together at the end, and with this pattern, I didn't have to. I hope that makes sense...let me know if anyone wants further direction. 
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / stripey kitty bag on: November 19, 2004 02:58:39 PM
Well....this took foreva, and I kinda messed it up numerous times because I was trying to use extra thick interfacing (for Amy Butler's Madison bag) that people said to use, but my sewing machine didn't like it, etc., etc.  But I like how the wool felt kitty turned out!  Plus I've only been sewing for 2 weeks, so I figure it's not bad for a beginner!  I may get fired from my job (I work at home!) if I don't stop sewing and start working!

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Bright PINK/GREEN zippered pouch! (and question re: zippers) on: November 17, 2004 09:10:55 PM
Hi you crafty sewers,
Just got a machine and I've been so thankful for the great resources on Craftster.  I made this little pouch from Dyabolica's wonderful tutorial here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=10165.0, but have questions (below pic) about getting the zipper to line up.

I do it a little differently, there are a few more steps, but the zipper always lines up -
Look at a zipper - it has an end that is always closed, and an end that opens and closes.
I close the zipper, sew up the side of the bag with the end of the zipper that opens and closes (it will be the side that the pull is on at the moment).
then OPEN THE ZIPPER (very important)
then sew up the other sides. 

But I don't understand exactly what that means in terms of at what point you do this in the tutorial steps and how it makes the zipper line up.  Sorry to be dense, but I'm very new to sewing, so would love advice!  Thanks in advance!!
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Frida t-shirt (transfer pen) on: March 17, 2004 03:59:27 PM




I've been wanting to do a stencil of Frida for a t-shirt, but haven't had the time to cut out a complicated stencil.  So,  I tried out this sulky transfer pen I had bought somewhere a while ago
http://www.sulkyonline.com/transferpens/

It came out more faded than it would if you did a stencil, but you can do different colors, and it's a good alternative if you have problems cutting detailed stencils like I do!  Wink
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / stripey sweater on: March 11, 2004 09:01:35 AM


Thought I'd post the sweater I just finished.  For me, it's hard to find plainer sweater patterns--I like boxy sweaters, not girlie ones, so I was happy to find this one.  I first saw the design here:
http://www.indigirl.com/gallery.html
and then ended up ordering a back issue of Interweave.  It's fun to knit this sweater because you do the whole thing in the round, so there is very little finishing at the end!  
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / knit stuffed kitty on: February 27, 2004 11:53:05 AM
Okay, okay, she looks REALLY handmade, but she's still cute... and she was my first attempt at a stuffed animal.  Got the pattern here:  
http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/patterns/toys/anyyarnteddybear.htm
I still need to make her an I-cord tail and give her to my friend who is turning one!  I don't think she'll mind that her legs are different sizes!!
