Thanks Amy!!!!!

This is my first time hosting a swap. I hope everyone is happy with their partners!

I am SO looking forward to getting started. Of the other swaps I've done, I think this is going to replace the swap your stash one as my new favorite. Smiley

Just finished my top stitching tonight. Big thanks for the advice from funthreads  few days ago!  Grin Now, I have to clean up the threads, finish the back and do the trim.
265  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Jedi Robe=Finished! on: May 07, 2012 07:32:48 AM
The on-going saga of my Jedi costume has another item complete=the Jedi robe! I finally finished it up last night. This is actually going to be a part of the Jedi costume I made and submitted last year for the costume contest.

I don't have any finished pictures of it yet and I need to head out the door to work, so here's a picture of it when it was about 3/4 of the way complete.

It's made of 100% linen from Joann Fabric, and the color is called "potting soil." I tried buying the remaining yards that I needed online but the fabric store's website kept saying there was an unknown error. The Va Beach store didn't get any more in since I bought all of what they had, so I had to go to the Chesapeake store to get the rest. That was a bit of a bummer too. If I had been able to buy it online, I would have saved a few more bucks over what the in-store sale price was.

Anyway, I bought a total of 7.8333 yards of this stuff ($95.07...YIKES!) and I don't even know how much I used for the robe as I have a lot left over. But the plus side is this: I have enough left over of this stuff to remake the tabbards and sash of the costume. Since I'm going for the best costume I can make, this is a good time to take another crack at it.

The only thing I wish I had done differently was the hem on the sleeves. For the very bottom hem and the hem around the hood, I used an X style of stitch, instead of a straight stitch, in matching brown thread. I thought having those XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX's all the way around the hems might add a little detail to the robe that only I would notice. If I had been thinking, I would have done those same X's around the bottom of the sleeves as well.

I actually made my sleeves an inch or so longer than the pattern, and I made the hood larger as well.

One of the Jedi robe "trademarks" is that the hood has to be large enough to "pool" on both sides of the head on the shoulders. Sons of the Suns had a nice image there to help show how large the hood should be.

I've actually been making a list of ideas for possible things I could make. Smiley I'm wondering how my ideas will compare to what my partner would actually like to receive? Smiley I've never had this "problem" before for a swap.  Grin
268  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Grocery Store Tote from Purl Bee on: May 06, 2012 02:37:37 PM
I just finished Purl Bee's Grocery Store Tote from http://www.purlbee.com/crocheted-linen-grocery-tote/.

I used an I sized crochet hook and one ball of Lion Brand Yarn 100% pure cotton (189 yards of cotton per ball), in Americana #211).

I've had this yarn in my stash for about a year so it was time to do something with it. I love it and I bought it at Hancock Fabrics because I had come across a wonderfully soft red, white and blue yarn up in Yorktown, VA that would have made some killer socks, but it was $30 a SKEIN. This was my substitute purchase (I still have two more balls of it left), even though the 100% cotton doesn't really lend itself to something cozy an wearable. Those are going to be turned into another grocery store bag as well.

This bag is deceptively strong, by the way. I used it already at the grocery store. While I didn't have  any produce to go in it (I see this bag as a replacement for plastic when I'm buying fresh produce), the bagger we had put a half gallon of orange juice, two cans of dog food and one other thing in it (I don't remember what else there was) and it held up just fine!
