Hi to all the Soapmakers!!! I have been researching how to make soap and I came across these sites that have a kit with everything to make my first batch the first site is from crabapplesoap.com: http://www.crabapplesoap.com/kits.html Does anybody know if they are reputable? Everything is pre-measured so I would have to buy a scale for the next batch that I make. The second one is from Brambleberry.com: http://www.brambleberry.com/kits.html (its about half way down called the Cold Process Kit. I'm leaning towards the first one I just need someone's advice that can help me decide. Thanks!
Thank you Arabella, Vanillaxlight and Godels_truth for helping me with this pattern. It was very confusing but I managed to make this. I've tried to post a pic but it keeps disappearing so I'm gonna post a pic from my fotki (I hope that its not against the rules, I don't think?) http://public.fotki.com/trini14/learning-to-crochet/
Hello!! I'm not new to Craftster just new to the Crochet Forum. I recently started learning how to crochet however I was limited to only one stitch. I bought this awesome book by Afya Ibomu called " Get Your Crochet On!" and I'm trying to make a snood for my locs. However, I'm stumped on this particular direction for Round 4: it says to Ch 3, * (1 dc in next st, ch1) repeat from * around, join. I did the Ch 3 then in the next stitch I dc, then with the stitch left on the hook I did a ch1. Now I'm not particularly sure that I did it right because it was suppose to have a total of 30 stitches from the previous round but it ended up being like double the stitches. It was really big. So am I reading this wrong? Please help!! I undid all the stitches I did so I can start over. Here is a picture this is where I stopped the beginning of round 4 with the ch 3. Here is the author's website www.nattral.com
Well I am starting to be more confident, especially after I went to the Renegade Craft Show today in Chicago. So I came home and made this tote. I'm not really good with lining yet, so its unlined. Please tell me what you think, only way a person will learn is from constructive criticism. I was thinking of adding one of Angela's Rosettes (for all ya'll Project Runway watchers, lol!!) but I think it may look to busy. Thanks for looking.
Hi Everyone, here is another tote that I made with a young family friend of mines she wanted to learn how to sew, so we made a basic tote. She sewed the sides up, I did everything else, but I know she had a blast.
Hi! My name is Avril I am a beginner sewer, and I am interested in finding an instructor. I work during the week in Chicago, so it would be hard during the week. I live in the Joliet area. My sewing skills are pretty basic, but thanks to craftster.org I have made some purses, a shirt, and a couple skirts. I really would like to learn how to read a pattern, because it seems like a foreign language to me anyways. Please only serious posters, thanks!!!!!
Hi, first I love craftster but I have a suggestion, it would be great instead of clicking on the numbers to search through the thread to type in a number if you know what number page a certain item or tutorial is on, because it gets kind of boring when your at 1 but what your looking for is on pg 85. Just a suggestion.
