21  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Tiny corset for a 12" doll? on: February 24, 2011 10:30:00 PM
So I'm crocheting a little doll, and I want to dress her in period clothes, around the 1800s or so (I think that's about right). Anyway, I wanted to try my hand at sewing things for her, and I wanted to make her a corset. I'm not sure how to go about it, though. I've seen some basic patterns for people-sized corsets, and I thought I might just follow the basics of those on a smaller scale, but since she's so small I don't think I'd be able to put boning in it. And without boning, it might just be a floppy piece of fabric and fall apart.

Help! Any advice would be appreciated.

23  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet/knitting scholarships! on: February 20, 2011 04:14:15 PM
Yes. It does actually exist.

I belong to a couple of scholarship-search websites (because college students can always use free money), and it matched me up with this scholarship. It's put on by Jimmy Beans Wool, which is an online yarn store that I've never heard of . . . but they give out six $3,000 awards. All you have to do is submit an original pattern or photo of a recent project you've crocheted/knit, fill out an application form, and there's a short essay question at the end about what you plan to do in the next 5 years education-wise.

I know I'm just creating more competition for myself, but hey . . . there's six awards to go around, right? Cheesy

I hope this is the right place to post this, if it's not, mods please move it. Smiley For all you other college yarnies out there, click the link below if you are interested:

24  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / "The Guild" swap? on: February 19, 2011 06:16:51 PM
I'm not sure if there are a lot of people on here who watch The Guild (although I know there's at least one, because she was my partner in my last swap Tongue). It's a web series about gamers, it's completely nerdy . . . and AWESOME.

I think this would be a super-fun swap. Any Guildies interested? I'd be willing to organize - it'd be my first swap, so it'd have to be small (unless someone wants to volunteer to co-organize, depending on how many people there are). Any takers?

I tend to make mine on the bigger side (36" to 40" square), just because then the baby can use the blanket up through the toddler ages. Smiley

While stalking my partner's Wist, I think I found something even more awesome than my original idea. It's a good thing we have a long crafting time for this swap, otherwise I'd be in a lot of trouble for starting over. Tongue
29  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / YOs are too tight - HELP! on: February 10, 2011 12:46:15 PM
Whilst trying to make these gloves - http://knitting-and.com/wiki/Mrs_Lovett%27s_Mitts - I discovered that when I try to [k1, yo, k2tog] my stitches are so tight from the previous row it is nearly impossible to k2tog. What am I doing wrong? I purposely have loosened my grip on the yarn so there's extra yarn in the stitches, but I always seem to end up with the same problem . . .

Urg. This is why I crochet, knitting hates me. >.<

NUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!

My dogs decided my yarn looked like a fun toy and completely destroyed what awesomeness I already had done. :/ Now I gotta start over and get more yarn . . . epic failure.
