11  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / yay! first embroidery, and for fathers day too! on: June 18, 2005 01:40:37 PM
alrighty..  I thought my dad would like new handkercheifs for fathers day. So i got him plain white ones... and i thought to myself on the way home, "self, these are rather boring. what can we do to make them new and exciting handkercheifs?" ---> embroidery!!
so i pulled out my better homes and gardens and looked at the basic stitch guide and whatnot and gave it a go.
the first one is of his initials, K G, even thought it looks like X G. oops.

this next one is of a music note, because he loves listening and playing music.

and the last one is of a bicycle, because he loves to cycle. He's also learning french, and he loves the tour de france.

and btw, the A's and hearts are my sig on the embroidery.

(happy fathers day dad)
^_^
12  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Help me pick a design! (img hvy) on: June 12, 2005 03:26:19 PM
Hello craftsters!
I would like to try screenprinting. I have a kit and everything. After school gets out, I want to make black tote bags with designs on them... I just can't for the life of me pick a design! can you help me?
Questions i have: Will any of these "not work" with photo emulsion (lines too small, etc)?
Are they too weird? Would people not buy them? These are just ideas. I'm still thinking of some. Keep in mind that they will likely be white on black.





***and I brainstormed and made another***

14  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Is this a good deal for a silkscreen kit? on: April 13, 2005 01:12:34 AM
Is this a good deal?
I want to buy a kit for silkscreening, just to make sure i don't buy the wrong products or something.
It is a speedball thing... http://store.artcity.com/spb-4526.html. At my local michaels, it is 54.99, but i can use a coupon that would make it about $32.99.
is there something cheaper that i could look into? i know about the embroidery hoop thing, i've tried it and need more detail.
15  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Lip Ring parts? on: March 18, 2005 06:51:30 PM
Does anyone know where to buy the parts for lip rings? I'm pretty sure they don't have those at Michaels... :] Thanks!! (btw, I'm in the US, if that makes a difference)
16  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Gila survey... please answer on: January 01, 2005 10:39:43 PM
I have a question for you all...
I have a button store. I sell buttons. All are handmade and design is free, but i have been told my prices are too high.

How much would you pay for 100 custom 1.25 in buttons?
17  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / I <3 my new cloche and poncho! on: December 05, 2004 12:24:24 AM
I have an announcement- I <3 cloches! I used extra squares from my poncho. Vintage patterns rock! especially when they work out to be just the right length to fit around my mongo head. :]


I used the flower from Beppycats hat, the flower one, and just sc'd around the bottom.

Edit!
Here are some pics of my poncho. With school and... patience it took me about three months. Modified vintage stole pattern from my mom's old collection. (time to bring out the duct tape mannequin!)



18  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Patons Divine yarn trouble on: December 03, 2004 11:27:45 PM
My mom is making some hats as gifts for xmas, but she's having some trouble with some yarn. It's the softest stuff i've seen- it's kind of like homespun but a little fuzzier. mohair homespun, if you will. I think it's called Patons Divine. ( i found a link to it, just to be sure. http://www.herrschners.com/products/sku-711007__id-806__tab-.html )
Anyways, she's having some trouble seeing her stitches. does anyone have any suggestions or comments about the yarn? It's really pretty and i would hate to waste it.
19  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / kitty hat!(now with tutorial-esque pictures) on: November 28, 2004 12:43:50 AM
I just realized, i forgot to put in the 'next row' instructions... I've corrected the pattern below...


Finally, I have made my own kitty ear hat. Now that its gotten cold down here in Cali, I can use it. Here's a makeshift pattern, i've never really made a pattern before so bear with me.
I just chained(sc) enough to fit my head, then sc 4, then four from the end dc every third stitch till the end.** chain two. DC in second stitch from the end. chain 1. dc in second stitch from dc. continue until end. **(repeat between **, about 13 rows.until it fits your head) It should look like a rectangle. "Sew" ends together, so it looks like a tube. sew the top part together, so you have a square with a closed bottom (like a purse). put your hat on, and find where you want the ears to be. sew (right side out, if applicable) the two sides together where you want the ears to be. finish off the ends!
i've found it equally cute when the ears are just tied in the center of the ears, near the head.

I found the idea for this hat on craftster somewhere. Thanks Craftster!

please ignore my messy desk... my work got ahead of me.
I'm making these for my good friends for xmas, it's a really quick project and it makes you truly giddy while you're wearing it. I think it's at least two hats per 3.5 oz skien!  X :]

Okay, Some questions about the pattern are best helped with pictures.

and on second thought, that picture is small. Here is a bigger picture.

have fun!
20  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / woe is me, without my kitty hat on: November 13, 2004 07:21:24 PM
I've seen the most wonderful hat in the world, at http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=3379.0. But alas, it is a knit pattern. I have scoured the internet for a crochet version, but to no avail. Does anyone have a link or pattern for the kitty hat? (smile smile wink wink)
