1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Basic Bonnet from Last Minute Knitted Gifts on: August 10, 2006 05:51:10 PM
Hello everyone!

I'm in the final stages of knitting the Basic Bonnet from LMKG and I'm in quite the pickle.

Has anyone else encountered any problems with attaching the I-cord to the bonnet brim?  I keep reading the instructions and I just can't figure it out for the life of me.  My mom and I have been working on it all night, and we haven't a clue at this point.

Any help or advice would be really appreciated!

4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / Heritage Scrapbook - A few layouts on: March 21, 2005 05:12:44 PM
I began heritage scrapbooking last year, so far I have only a few layouts - but I'm proud of them all the same!  Enjoy!



This is a layout that I did to commemorate my Grandparent's journey from Scotland to Canada in the late 1920s.  It doesn't show very well, but I used a thick paper that almost looks like leather to mimic an old desk liner.  As well, I searched online and found images of the two boats that my Grandparents came over on - they are on the right page.



This is a layout I did that features my parents wedding.  They were married in 1970, and I used the bridesmaid's BRIGHT pink gowns as inspiration for the colour scheme.  As well, I re-created their wedding invite (on the left page) and scanned and then printed out their engagement announcement (on the bottom left).



This is a very basic family tree.  I tried to use more candid (or at least casual) photos than formal family pictures.  I've only included pictures of my grandparents, parents and my sister and I - the circular tags that are hanging between the Grandparents and my parents have the names and bithdates of my parents siblings.  I tried to keep it clean and simple.
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Need some Help! on: November 16, 2004 08:37:15 AM
I'm embroidering a pattern I drew myself, I used a UNIQUE brand transfer pencil to transfer the design onto my fabric.  The pencil bled a little and now I have pink smudges on my fabric - does anyone know a method or product that could help me get rid of these ugly little stains?

Any help/tips would be appreciated.
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Gingerbread Messenger Bag on: November 14, 2004 12:36:38 PM
I posted this project yesterday in the Purses, Wallets and Bags Forum.  I made it yesterday, it's going to be a Christmas present for a friend of mine.  I wanted to make something that would serve both as a gift bag and a gift in itself.  I was originally going to make the bag look like a wrapped present but decided against it because it was too Christmasy, then I realised that if I made it look like the bag was made out of gingerbread then it could be used all year round.  I used Italian suiting fabric for the bag, it was on sale and it's the perfect colour and consistency to look like gingerbread. 





I can post a tutorial if anyone is interested.

Long time lurker, and now for my first official post!  I made this today, it's going to be a Christmas present for a friend of mine.  I wanted to make something that would serve both as a gift bag and a gift in itself.  I was originally going to make the bag look like a wrapped present but decided against it because it was too Christmasy, then I realised that if I made it look like the bag was made out of gingerbread then it could be used all year round.  I used Italian suiting fabric for the bag, it was on sale and it's the perfect colour and consistency to look like gingerbread.
