OH my GOD.
If you have a pattern for this, would you possibly send it my way?
I have a cat named Pickles, and we're currently staying at my dads house. Everyone here calls him Mr. Pickles - this would be insanely funny/perfect.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Vintage Bombshell bathing suits, linings bullet bras - design and repair - Help! on: May 07, 2010 01:01:22 PM
Hello everyone,

I'm looking for some assistance. I purchased a 1950's bathing suit a while back, and I'm trying to get it repaired before swimsuit season finally starts. One of the Bra cups is 'empty' - meaning all the plastic bits that keep it's shape fell out. I'm wondering if anyone knows anything that could be used to repair this? I was thinking the plastic pellets from hacky sacks - but that might cause the fabric problems.

I'm also looking at doing some 1950-60s style suits and I'm wondering about the old school lining (as mentioned above). Anyone have any good sources for this? I'd like to keep it as old school shaped as possible and I'm having NO luck finding anything about bathing suit linings from the 50's to 60s :/

I thought that too.. but it's almost like I'm starting the chain off too loose.. But at the same time if I start it too tight it shrinks it too much.. I'm not sure what to do Huh
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Tunisian/Afghan stitch - Ughhh! Help! on: January 03, 2008 03:09:07 PM
Ok. I'm having the STUPIDEST problem ever.
Basically I'm trying to make an afghan, and I decided that since I'm unable to grasp granny squares yet, I would make the squares using the afghan stitch.

Simple yes?

For me no. Here's the problem I'm having:

I'm using a 7mm Crochet hook, with a rubber band on the end - I don't have a proper afghan hook yet. I worked it out so it would be a 12 inch square. It didn't turn out that way. It ended up being a 10. Then by the time I finished the square, the measurements were 10in x 11.5 inch... No longer a square. Tongue

I have no problems doing the stitch.. So I have No idea where I'm going wrong. Can someone give me a simple 12in or 10in Tunisian Square pattern? I'm already PO'ed that I wasted that much yarn/time so far.
