1061  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Re: Quick Question - Art as a Transfer on: September 01, 2006 03:31:13 AM
honestly, I don't know what file type is best.  jpegs seem to work well, and so do bmps.

also, you'll probobly have the most luck with a white shirt, the colors will show up best on it.

i think, from what i've read, that you'll want to make sure you make the transfer on a very good printer.  i wouldn't use my crappy lexmark for something so special.
1062  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Patterns/Instructions for New Knitters? on: August 31, 2006 11:53:36 AM
you're teaching medical students how to knit?
wow.
hopefully it'll help 'em be good with their hands.  the future surgeons need to be precise.

maybe you can have 'em make baby hats to go with the baby blankets.  the easy ones I can even make: you just knit up a rectangle, stitch up the sides, and voila.
they look kinda like this.

with a bottom.  Imagine the asterisks as pompoms.  You can also knit a cylinder, then sew up the top.  It's really easy, but I'm not explaining it well.

 Cry  I couldn't find an example on google either.  It's the kind that folks tie up the corners to look like ears.

good luck.

Like it?  I love it.  I like the coils at the end of the wire in the wings.  I love the whole outfit.  You are adorable too.
1064  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Instead of felt... on: August 30, 2006 02:32:45 AM
the felting that folks are talking about doing *is* done with animal wool.

you can *buy* felt by the yard that's acrylic or wool.  there may be other options, but i haven't come across them yet.  this stuff won't neccesarily work for the felting projects, but you can applique and stitch on it all day long and it works pretty well.  just hand wash it, because it tends to get kinda wonky in the machines.

i don't know if you'd consider predator friendly wools?  here's one source: http://www.lambandwool.com/

I like this book.  I like the philosophy, the non-snootery, the funny little stories.
I just wish there were more projects.

I glanced at it, and it seemed like a decent book.  What didn't you like about it?
1067  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: ReadyMade on: August 30, 2006 01:43:04 AM
Before I looked at it much, I bought a copy from Powell's as a gift.  I hadn't decided which of two friends that would like it would actually get it.  Then when I looked more in depth at the book, I realized I didn't really want to give the ReadyMade book to any of my friends, because despite its neat package, it sucks.  I finally sold it back to Powell's.
It's got more theory than practical stuff, and the theory isn't that exciting or informative.

i'm gonna have to run by there.  i live closer to mabel's on division, but i like checkin' places out.
1069  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Urgent help... t shirt neck warped after binding..... on: August 27, 2006 12:47:09 AM
when i've had something similar happen to my stuff in the past, it was because when I sewed it in my machine, i stretched one fabric slightly more than the other.  then, when i took the stitching out, it stayed wonky. 

you might try running it through a washer and dryer.  it might take the warp out (it's  worked for me in similar situations).  then you can try reinforcing it again.

if it's still warped/wonky, you might have to switch to plan b, and stitch some lace or some random embellishment on there to distract from the wonkiness...
