1  Nettle Smoothies! in Recipes and Cooking Tips by ironcityalchemy on: March 25, 2012 03:02:00 PM


Hey, I've finally given up on gardening (for this year at least), so I'm trying to make the most of the plants that are already in my yard. I've tried nettles a few ways (you just have to cook them slightly, puree or pound them to remove the sting). Fruit smoothies are my favorite so far. You can really use any smoothie recipe and just throw in a big handful of rinsed fresh nettle leaves (use rubber gloves or something to pick them) but I put my favorite recipe in this post: http://www.ironcityalchemy.com/2012/03/nom-nom-gnome-nettle-berry-smoothie.html

2  Bathing Suit With Legs in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ironcityalchemy on: March 03, 2012 12:27:55 PM
I just made a bathing suit! I'm not very experienced at creating my own patterns, and I was afraid of sewing lycra, but I'm glad I finally did it. It actually fits great and I'm much happier with it than I have been with a bathing suit in a long time.

To make it slightly supportive and not too invisible without having to do complicated lining things, I just used a double layer of fabric (right-side in on the inside). I made the pattern by estimating from a pair of leggings and a tank top. Oh, and the legs were finished before, but I cut them off because they were too long at first.

Complete tutorial on my blog, here: http://www.ironcityalchemy.com/2012/03/how-to-make-bathing-suit-with-legs.html

3  Mandrake! in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by ironcityalchemy on: February 28, 2012 08:21:39 AM


Hey, I just joined Craftster and got my picture-posting credentials Smiley This is a screenprint I made recently - my first attempt at two-color registration. I'm really pleased with how it turned out, but it helps that my colors don't actually meet - still can't really imagine how people make it work with something like an outline.

Oh, made on a Yudu by the way.
