1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Marc Jacobs A06 Floppey Hat - Pattern HELP! 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!

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Fall's coming! Wrist warmers/fingerless gloves w/ PATTERN! 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!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Paper tape dress form doubling as opera diva shrine 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
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Old issue of GQ + packing tape + grade 2 weaving skills= snazzy clutch 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...



6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Crocheting onto wooden handles? 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!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Pattern for Summer's winter hat on The OC? on: December 26, 2005 02:59:01 PM
For all you avid OC fans: remember the episode (which aired about a month ago) when the OC crew was occupied with university applications?  In deciding to go to a college in the north with Seth, Summer bought them both fabulous winter hats, a pattern for which I am DESPERATELY seeking.  It was a cross between a helmet and a russian-style hat; ear flaps, flap turned upwards on the forehead, possibly a pocket on the side of the hat. 

If anyone can help me, 'tis you all!

Pattern media/technique doesn't matter: sewing, crochet, papier mache, whatever.  Thanks!
