My future brother-in-law came out to visit my fiance and I in Hawaii for Thanksgiving. He really liked a bag he saw in one of the tourist stores, but of course it was super expensive, so I made one for him to give to his girlfriend instead!
He picked out the fabric and the design for the appliques. It was about 16"x16" and was lined in blue Hawaiian fabric. Sorry I don't have more pictures, he already took it back to California!
Hello, Spinners! Tomorrow I'm adopting two all-white English Angora rabbits so they won't be put down. Anywho, I'm a knitter, not a spinner, and have no desire to learn until I move out of humid Hawaii. Would any of you be interested in some angora fiber? It shouldn't be expensive at all to ship because it's so light, and I'd hate to see the fiber go to waste! PM me or post here if you'd like some; first come, first served!
Hi everyone, I'm thinking of jumping onto the etsy bandwagon (really late, I know), and these burp cloths would be the first things I would offer. They're made from soft, prewashed flannel, and I have more "traditional" baby and shabby chic ones on the way. They are saddle-shaped so they won't slip off your shoulders, and all edges are professionally finished! Anyway, here are the pictures:
I'm thinking of selling them in a 3-pack for $12. Is this pricing fair? I'm also wondering if I should package them differently, like with a bib or a blankie instead. Do you think these have a chance? Thanks in advance for all your help! Lizzie
Hi everyone, I just moved to Hawaii on Wednesday. I'm waiting for my car to get here, so I'm pretty much stranded in Ewa Beach until it arrives. I'd like to get to know some crafty-minded people out here because I just left an amazing SnB group in California. I mainly knit and sew, but I have tried crochet and scrapbooking. Thanks! Lizzie
*Crossing my fingers this works... first picture post*
I made the dress on the left for my little sister - we went to the Teen Choice Awards, and she was mortified that she had nothing to wear... I only had a few hours to make it!
ETA: The elephant sequin fabric at the top came from Little India in Artesia, California. I love it so much! I luckily have enough left to make something similar-ish to this. Or I could just steal this one back. I don't have any great pictures, but you can sorta see the patch I used on the bottom corner. I went to iron the material to hem it, but the iron burned a little hole in it ... I was so upset, but the patch actually made the whole thing more interesting and more boutique-y (if that's even a word). I'll try to get better pictures, if she'll let me have it for two seconds.
Hey guys, I have a major dilemma! I'm a swim instructor, and I need to come up with an easy, homemade, waterproof costume to wear in the pool Tuesday while I teach my kids. Any ideas? I'd greatly appreciate it!
My boyfriend, a manly Air Force guy, has learned how to knit! He's now obsessed with making beanies, but seeing as he lives a million miles away, I can't teach him anything else. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a guy-friendly knitting book, seeing as Stich 'n' Bitch kinda scared him a little. Thanks so much!
ps. Sorry if this is elsewhere, I tried searching already
I found a really beautiful velvet burnout scarf/stole at the thrift store for a quarter today... I love it so much, but I know I won't use it for it's real purpose. It's almost a foot wide, and about three feet long, but is very delicate, so it'll be a bit difficult to work with (but I'm willing to do it!). Any ideas?
