1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: caps for dreads and skullies on: November 01, 2004 07:25:59 PM
The Groovy Crochet website (a web archive site) has a lot of patterns from the 60's & 70's including skull caps. Several of the caps are listed under poncho patterns as well since they come as a set:

If you have trouble getting to it, you can also try Stargazer's Crochet Links:

Good luck!

3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Someone wants my stuff....now what? on: October 26, 2004 09:57:30 AM
Crafty Business Grrrls,

I have a shop on Zazzle.com (similar to cafepress) where I sell my retro/kitsch designs. People have the option of putting them on tee's, posters, sweats, etc.

A woman contacted me thru my page on zazzle and would like to carry my stuff in her shop and on her site. I checked out her website-which is legit. She wants to know my wholesale info/prices.

The problem is, since I just do the designs and Zazzle does all the rest, I'm not sure how I would go about selling them by other means.... Huh. I would have to order them from Zazzle and then sell them to her....? But I'm not sure how I would do that and still : A. make money for me and B. keep them low enough for wholesale. Any suggestions on how to do this?

I also think that since I am dealing in wholesale & selling them outright I would have to get a vendor's permit, which I currently don't have at the moment...

Also, would it be worth it to invest the possible amount of $$ it woud take? I'm just changing jobs, so I don't have a lot right now!

I hope this makes sense!

Any help/ideas/suggestions/etc would be wonderful!

added: sorry for the double post! Embarrassed

Thanks in advance,
Jodi

Okay....just picked up my copy yesterday (Oct 4) at Barnes & Noble. I
love the blue jacket on the cover and the Ruffle-Edge coat on page 45. Would have liked to have seen a few more clothes and less afghans though. There seems to be thousands of afghan patterns already...although some of the ones they had were kinda cute.

Plus...two of the patterns I've seen in other mags.

Not too bad overall....

I don't know, but the issue and the articles they talk about is the one I have from 2003.... Sad
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: henna embroidery patterns on: September 28, 2004 08:49:36 PM
WOw! Beautiful work, merwing!

The Summer issue of Marie Claire Idees (a French mag...I don't read/speak French, but if you are a crafty/visual person, you can figure most of the patterns out and use an internet translater for the rest) has some great embroidery patterns based on traditional henna designs.

I'm thinking of doing one on the back of a jean jacket I got at a thrift store....

The magazine is available at B&N and Borders. It is worth getting a hold of!
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Flapperish or 1930's Cloche Hat with Flower - - Pattern Too! on: September 28, 2004 08:34:33 PM
Thanks Bepp! I love the kitty hat! I’ve been looking for one for a while but all I could find is knit versions…..

I kind of made up the flower pattern as I went along…..the yarn and hooks make the flowers appear a lot larger…..
For the large flower I used a size P hook
For the smaller flower I used a size K hook
Use a chunky/furry yarn. I used Paton’s Divine.

Here goes… Undecided

With a size P hook, leaving a tail of at least 6 inches, ch 5, join with a slip stitch in the first chain to form a ring
-(sc in ring, chain 3) 8 times. Join with a sl st to the first sc
-(sc, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1, sc) in each 3 space around, join.
Fasten off. Leave an tail end of at least 6 inches.

With a size K hook, leaving a tail of at least 6 inches, ch 5, join with a slip stitch in the first chain to form a ring
-(sc in ring, chain 3) 6 times. Join with a sl st to the first sc
-(sc, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1, sc) in each 3 space around, join.
Fasten off. Leave an tail end of at least 6 inches.

I hope that makes sense!

Place the smaller flower on top of the larger one so the middle holes line up. Pull the ends of the smaller flower through the larger flower and knot the two together. Attach to the hat by either sewing or weaving the ends of the tail where they will not be noticed. I wove the ends in at several points so the flowers would balance well.

The hat pattern can be found at [/http://web.archive.org/web/20010817025136/www.cei.net/~vchisam/groovy/05-202cap.html and is pictured with an open-weave poncho.

I guess this is what happens when I don’t check craftster on a regular basis….sigh…so I’ll ad my post onto this topic even though I used a different pattern, but the hats look somewhat alike!  Cheesy I was inspired by a crocheted hat I saw in “Lucky” magazine ($97?!?! I don’t think so!) and created the this hat instead.

The hat pattern itself is from the Groovy Crochet (web archive) site. I used Lion Brand wool ease. It took less than one skein.

The flower I created myself using Paton’s Divine. It is more pink than the picture shows.

Super BA-you shouldn't have told us! Now we all will try to do that so we can support our crafting habit!  Wink

Thanks for writing them as well Amie! From what I can see, 5 people have purchased the link so far....and she is now offering 10 more at
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=11800&item=8132548538. sigh.

From some of the pix, I know that you can find a lot of these patterns on the web for free-I've seen them on the web archive site for Groovy Crochet....

But I guess if people are stupid enough to buy something they can google....maybe they get what they deserve??!! Undecided

I told eBay that the link is probably http://home.inreach.com/marthac/links.html "Stargazer's Crochet & Craft Links." I'm still waiting from eBay for a reply to my complaint to see what they say....

Lindsayanne--did you see? someone bought Francis' in a cup for $10----WTF?

Take care,
Jodi
