1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Completed Felted Purse, but need opinions. Bad! Edit - It's done, done! on: October 11, 2008 10:07:45 AM
Hi Everyone -
I stupidly volunteered to make a purse for a local fundraiser auction, and I've never been confident enough to ever sell anything I make (I'm strictly gifts - no selly selly).

Anyhow, the purse is made, and I feel like it needs embellishment. I've taken some cruddy photos which are hard to see the colour from, but I'm looking for your help. Does any option look alright, or should I just knit something else....? Undecided

Here is the almost finished bag, ready for shaping etc (believe it or not it's a dark heathered green):


Should it have just the simple ribbon flower with a nice antique silver button for the closure like this (believe it or not all that ribbon is also a dark green):


Or should it be a bit more fun with a little bit of felt dots?


Can you help a sister out?


Edit -
The flower seemed to be the higher vote, so I went that way. I added a lining from a Sally Anne shirt, and tossed on a button from an old leather jacket. Thanks so much to all who gave their opinion. Smiley

My nieces like their little purses. They use them to put their Tombliboos in Smiley
I've used my watch for scale.

I LOVE knitting for babies.
These two are knit in Estelle Cloud Cotton (it is SO incredibly soft)

Two new baby sweaters. One in Manos Del Uraguay with a pattern from the Yarn Girls Guide to Simple Kid Knits. The second is Cascade Sierra with a pattern courtesy of a nice Craftster Crafter. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=46458.0




6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Girls Gone Wild! on: May 19, 2007 09:46:51 AM
We silkscreened panties and t-shirts. It was difficult to find a pin-up stencil to screen, so we used a Lichtenstein (sp?) type image with text that said "Oh no....It's girls gone wild!)




I believe the image came from Stencilry.org, but I can't quite remember.

Hey guys -
I'm desperately searching for an image of a pin-up to silscreen (black adn white preferably). I'm having a party tomorrow, and need to screen shirts for a bunch of girls. I've been to stencilry and can't find anything, so I thought I would turn to you AWESOME people for help.
Anyone got anything?

9  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Winter '06 Interweave Equestrian Jacket-edited w/progress pic on: March 09, 2007 06:47:33 AM
I've got it on the needles.....Anyone interested?

edit:
This is the photo of the back which I finished yesterday. I didn't realize that there were those lovely darts when I first decided to knit this up. I really like it. I dropped a stitch near the collar which I'm irritated about (you can see the marker in the photo), so i might just stitch it in.

I am using Manos del Uraguay in Rhubarb frogged from a disastrous attempt at another sweater. I think the varegation adds a nice touch...

Any thoughts guys? I'm just an advanced beginner so I really appreciate feedback.
