1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Plastic Canvas Calendar Pattern on: December 29, 2013 08:14:47 AM
Does anyone know where I can find a free pattern for a plastic canvas calendar? The kind that you can slide the numbers around on, to change the months etc. Ugh! I don't know if I'm explaining this right.
I want to make my son a number/ letter board using that design, so he can slide the numbers or letters around to make words etc. I found two patterns but they were kind of confusing and pretty much all the links I found lead back to those two patterns. So I was hoping maybe someone on here might know of one that's a little better explained. Thanks in advance for any help.
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Dr Who Woodburning Wedding Gift on: November 16, 2013 06:32:23 AM
A couple we know are getting married this month, they're both big Dr Who fans, and the hubby made this woodburning. It turned out so good I wanted to share, also I've noticed there are a few Dr Who fans on here.


What do you think?
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: finished product half as big as pattern says on: November 15, 2013 11:57:06 AM
Are you sure that the pattern is in US English, and not British English? Double crochet is US terms equals triple crochet in British terms.

I assumed it was in US term, but neither pattern specifies if it's US or British. Maybe I'll give it a shot using the triple crochet and see if it turns out. Thanks!

Thank you

I don't think so the abbreviation key says double crochet. The finished project is supposed to be 8 inches, but they're turning out 4 inches.
Do you think I could do the last round a couple times to get the desired size?

Thanks! I've been using a plastic Easter egg as a mold, it's actually works really well and is a good size. I wish I'd seen your post earlier I just put in an order with Appalachian Valley Natural products. I got a bunch of sample sizes as well as a couple 20ml bottles for around $13 with shipping. I figured I could try different scents this way. They were on the supplier list.

Thanks. Yes I was talking about bath bombs. I'm going to use citric acid in the ones I'm making I was just curious if it would work or not. Actually I'm going to use the cupcake bath bomb tut that's on the tut list. I guess I'm mainly just having fun experimenting with different things. Smiley

I've tried two different round dishcloth patterns and both have turned out half the size of what the are supposed to be. I've tried changing my hooks, one has a gauge which I followed, the other didn't have a gauge. I don't know what I'm doing wrong but it's very frustrating. Could any one give me some tips as to what's going on?

Great project! And thanks for the links! My daughter wants a weeping angel tree topper, but she wants the ugly man one who looks like Lurch! Reaching out to ring your neck! I will have to see how I can modify this approach for that.  Grin

Thank you, and you're welcome. Smiley I guess you could always try using a Ken doll instead of Barbie.

This project started on a rainy yucky day when my daughter started complaining she was bored. So I got thinking, we didn't have a tree topper for when Christmas came around. Why not make one. I started looking for a tutorial or idea, the few I found wheren't exactly what my daughter wanted so I remembered seeing a tut on how to make a Weeping Angel from Dr Who here- http://lilybet85.blogspot.com/2010/11/weeping-angel-christmas-tree-topper.html which lead me to http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=354411.0 Any way I took their ideas and conformed it to what I needed.
So a big thank you to them.
It's not perfect this was my first time making and using paper clay. Which actually turned out a bit lumpy. But over all we're happy with the results and my daughter wants to make more. Smiley
