I am really wanting a men's zippered vest, but being that I can't afford to go out and buy one and I am into sewing lately I've decided to draft my own pattern. I'm using this ehow article: http://www.ehow.com/how_4423824_make-vest-pattern.html. Do you have any advice or tips that could help me?
I don't know if this is the right place to put this, but I was wondering if there was a way to change your username? The name Ambo, does not fit me and reminds me of a person I used to be but am not anymore. I would like to change it if at all possible.
I'm a Hufflepuff in the Harry Potter Knitting & Crochet House Cup group on Ravelry. I'm on hiatus from the game this month because I had carpal tunnel release surgery on the 24th of May so I've been going crazy with boredom since I can't do handwork. I bought a few sets of DPNs on eBay a couple of weeks ago and decided I wanted to make a case to keep them as well as my other sets of DPNs organized. I also wanted to make a Hufflepuff themed (sort-of) item. So here is my case:
I have an awesome 12 patch quilt my mom made for the family when I was around 2. She hand cut all these 2" squares (1296 of them), machine pieced them, and then hand quilted it. Unfortunately I and my younger sister had night wetting issues so the quilt got washed A LOT. the quilt is destroyed basically, unusable and I want to make my own. She used little scraps she had from other quilts she had made and clothes she had made me, but I don't have scrap fabric. So how do I pick the fabrics? I don't want it to be matchy, I want it to look scrappy, I think.
Does anyone have experience using soda can's for things? I want to cut off the tops and bottoms and use the middle part since it will be flat. I want to use it to make armor for an amigurumi I'm working on.
