1  Re: Summer Bag Swap Gallery!! in The Swap Gallery by ohgastonmyhero on: August 04, 2006 09:49:20 AM
I JUST received my bag!  My dad told me a package from Philadelphia was waiting for me downstairs just after I had come out of  the shower.  I almost lost my towel, I was so excited!  Here's the bag - I LOVE it!!!



Look at that fantastic embroidery - I don't know how my partner knew, but I just took up knitting after being a crocheter for many years!  What better way to show my switch to the darkside!  (Kidding of course - though my grandma tried to teach me to knit lefthanded when I was little - im righthanded- no wonder it took me this long to attempt it again) The timing of this bag couldn't have been more perfect.

And a pic of the bag alongside my sunglasses and cell, so you can get an idea of how GINORMOUS this bag really is:



Thank you SOOOO much Urbanarchaeology!  It's beautiful, and will go with my whole wardrobe!

2  Marc Jacobs A06 Floppey Hat - Pattern HELP! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by ohgastonmyhero on: July 10, 2006 02:15:03 PM
(I originally posted this in the designer homage board, but was advised to try my luck here!)

Hello crafting goddesses (and you mightly gods, be you few and far between)

A call to all KNITTERS!

I'm in LOVE with Marc Jacobs' fall collection, particularly with this hat.  It MUST be simple to knit, though I've just entered the land of knitting after crocheting for many years:



If anyone can help me, it's you all!  Please point me in the direction of a pattern!

4  Fall's coming! Wrist warmers/fingerless gloves w/ PATTERN! in Crochet: Completed Projects by ohgastonmyhero on: July 07, 2006 01:50:37 PM
Hey dudes,

It's never too early to start crocheting for fall when you have GORGEOUS yarn to work with!  I just bought 120 yards of wool goodness from twirlgirlfibers.etsy.com.  Highly recommend.  Alas, here's what I created:



Here's how to do it:

Need: around 115 yards of wool; 4.5mm/US G/size 7 hook

Ch 40

1) Sc in second ch from hook.  Sc in each sc across.  Ch 2. Turn.

2-10) Dc in each sc across.  Ch 2.  Turn.

11) Sl st into first 10 dc. Ch 2.  Dc in each dc across.

12-13) Dc in each dc across.  Don't dc in sl sts.

14-15) Dc in each dc across until you reach the sl sts.  Don't dc in sl sts.  Ch 1. Turn.  Sc in each dc across.     Fold matching short side to long side with bottom flush.  Sc to join row 15 to row 1.  Match edges of long sides at top of glove.  Sc to join row 1 to row 11.  Finish off. Weave in ends.

Now get started on your fall wardrobe already!

Funny I stumbled upon this post... I JUST pulled a pattern out of my collection of vintage Simplicity that's very similar to what you're looking for: (sorry for the lousy scan)



You'd have to cut down the front to create the V-neck, but the sleeves are exactly the same.

It's a bust 38-40", waist 30-32", hips 40-42".  It's cut, but all the pieces are there.  PM me if you'd like to do a pattern swap!  I have so many patterns that I'll probably never use - but I'm always happy to receive new ones!

6  Paper tape dress form doubling as opera diva shrine in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ohgastonmyhero on: May 23, 2006 02:28:06 PM
I'm sure all of you who have searched the boards for a DIY dress form tutorial have come across this link:

http://www.taunton.com/threads/pages/t00002_p5.asp

I decided to give the paper tape dress form a whirl, and it turned out fantastic!  I must give some credit to my bf, of course, who was kind enough to stay in on a Friday night in Montreal and papier -mache me.

I used masking tape to mark off all of the key measurements: bust, waist, hips, front and back centre.  I can even pin into it without gooping up my pins (one of the sad downfalls of those fabulous duct tape dress forms).

Et voila, the finished project, sporting my sculpey pride necklace, anxiously awaiting the next parade:



the back...



and before being taken over by opera divas and mod podge:



My days of stupid fitting mistakes are over!  or so I hope and pray

7  Old issue of GQ + packing tape + grade 2 weaving skills= snazzy clutch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ohgastonmyhero on: May 23, 2006 01:38:21 PM
Inspired by this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=52309.0, extreme boredom, and the realization that I should have at least one clutch in my wardrobe, I present to you...



the newest addition to my closet full of recycled goodies: a woven magazine clutch!

SOOoo simple to make: each strip is made from one magazine page folded in half 4 times, covered with clear packing tape, woven together into a rectangle the size of a magazine page.  Fold up the bottom third, tape the sides, add a snap, et voila!  A snazzy clutch to make even the most diehard recyclists intensely jealous. =)

Inside...



and the back...

8  Re: Tee--> Bag- Tips and Ideas Wanted! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by ohgastonmyhero on: May 14, 2006 09:30:57 AM
One of my favorite projects in the new Generation T book is the triangle tote.  It's made out of 4 triangles (9" x 23" x 25" your own measurements with the same proportions) which are sewn together at their bases and at the sides, leaving the top points of the triangles to be tied together creating the strap.  (Did that make any sense?  Perhaps a picture would be better...)

9  Crocheting onto wooden handles? in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by ohgastonmyhero on: December 31, 2005 12:32:46 PM
I'm currently working on my first crocheted handbag.  Crocheting the actual bag without a pattern was a breeze, but I can't figure out how to cover the wooden handles I made.



The bag is inspired by one I came across in an etsy shop:

Any tips would be much appreciated!

If you have access to a jigsaw, wooden handles are super easy (and cheap) to make yourself.  Just find some wood between 1/4 and 1/2 inch thick, and cut away.  Make sure the hole in the handle is around 4"x2" so your hand fits through comfortably.  

A handbag I'm currently working on with my new handles:
