1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Baby Rag Quilt Tutorial Needed on: May 22, 2007 08:39:47 AM
Good morning, I did a cursory search on this site and on the web, but didn't really find what I was looking for.  I've cut the squares for a baby quilt (it'll be 3 squares thick of flannel) and I'm looking for advice as to how to assemble one (its my first).  What I'm looking for is direction as to how to sew the quilt, what's the proper seam width etc and any other tips.  If someone knows of where I can find a tutorial, that would be awesome. 
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Mary Jane Slippers on: February 16, 2006 08:43:10 AM
I was wondering if anyone had a free (or knew of where I could buy) pattern for crocheted Mary Jane Slippers. 
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / A Sherpa's Hat on: December 14, 2005 12:37:53 PM
So, I've been making hats for the past couple of winters with the knitting loom...but I'd like to make a Sherpa's hat...crocheted preferably.  I see that some patterns are simply a beanie with ear flaps and others aren't.  So, this i ask of you...to share your favorite beanie pattern so i can experiment and add ear flaps...or if you have a pattern or know of a pattern for a winter hat with ear flaps...that would be awesome.  These hats are also called peruvian or bolivian hats. 

Here are some examples of what i'm looking for...these are knitted however...and i'm not looking to put in patterns right now..

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Teaching Newbies on: May 06, 2005 06:56:39 AM
(I apologize if this thread has already been started....)

So, a friend, co-worker, roommate, family member realizes you crochet and wants to learn....What pattern do you use to start them out.  Any tips, instructions you give them?

Personally I get a skein of sugar n' cream and start them out making dishcloths, but what do you use?


6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Ideas for Service Project on: April 07, 2005 08:13:55 AM
*I hate to spam the boards, but I'm going to put this message here.  Please forgive the multiple posts*

Hey, I'm on a committee for a church service project.  We're making toys for children 1-5 at a orphanage in Krygyzstan.  The children don't have any visual stimulation (no toys to play with at all) and i was wondering if any of you knew of any simple, quick, toys that could be made in afternoon.  The service project will be attended by 8 year old girls to 90 year old women so we need things that are simple, but fun and visually stimulating. 

Any ideas are welcome.

Thanks!
