2  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Wanting to learn how to make soap on: April 02, 2007 06:06:05 AM
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/
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet Pattern Question on: March 30, 2007 08:34:53 PM
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 Everyone,  I'm new to sewing and this is my first picture post of something that I've done.  I hope this works, as I am not good with uploading things.  Please let me know what you think.  Thanks!!

9  Illinois / Illinois: North / Looking for a Sewing Instructor on: July 05, 2006 01:25:08 PM
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!!!!!
10  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / [ACCEPTED] - Jump to page in boards on: March 08, 2006 09:39:08 AM
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.
