51  Pug costume from Princess to Pirate - Need Suggestions!!! in Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions by TreeTree on: May 06, 2006 01:26:43 PM
Ok here's the story.  My town has an island that is rumored to be one of the many place Captain Kidd may have burried his treasure.  It's called Charles Island.  This year we're having our first annual treasure hunt.  One of the activities of this all day event is the "Saltiest Dog Contest".  So of course I need to enter my pug Duchess in this.  We have a princess costume from halloween that I've been allowed to do whatever I want to.  So how would one go about dying this horrendous pink dress?  Also I'd like suggestion for colors (we're leaning toward purple)  I'm also going to try to add a faux corset type thing on the upper half....it's gonna be a challenge....sugges tions are welcome.  Here's some pics to give you an idea of what I'm starting with:

Since you all seem to love poppies so much I thought I'd share something...I took these pics in April 2 years ago...there's a a place in MA called the flower brige...it's in Buckland.  It's a old trolley bridge converted into a garden...anyway they had PINK poppies on the bridge and they were just gorgeous:





Never thought of crafting with them but mounting them on wooden jewlery box might be a nice idea

Bag Title: The "D" bag
Materials used: Cotton worsted weight yarn, acrylic worsted weight yarn (flower center), pin backing, wooden "D" cutouts
Bag picture:







I had trouble finding appropriate handles so I used "D" cutouts that were 99 cents each.  Stained, varnished and waxed them and here it is, my D bag...with a daisy.

I did this to enter in the spring bag challenge...It came out smaller then I wanted so I'm giving it to my handbag obsessed 12 year old cousin Becca who's visiting in June (she live in AZ, I live in CT, so this calls for a present, lol)

I was a little suprised to find out that the cabling was a snap (it was my first try cabling), the hardest part of the bag was finding handles to fit it.  Finally my sister saw these "D" cutouts and said, "Hey, look, handles!"  She's brilliant.  Then my boyfriend's father, stained, varnished AND waxed them.  So here it is, the "D" bag:







Please excuse my absolutely horrid handsewing skills on the liner.

55  Ack! I have problems! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by TreeTree on: April 13, 2006 05:16:27 PM
Lol, ok this is my first post here and already i'm begging for help.  Roll Eyes

So I started making the Shocking Pink Coif (but in blue) from Knitty and all's going well except I did the m1 the wrong way and I have these holes.  Now I don't mind these holes, in fact I like them.  There lies the problem, instead of ripping it out when I realized my mistake I said "Oh well I like it this way."  Always the deviant.  Anyhow now I'm not sure how to make the decrease side match, my logic tells me if I just k2tog i'm not going to get holes.  So how do I make it match?  Oh and here's a pic:



P.S. This was taken a half hour ago and I just couldn't put it down so I'm even farther along now, I'm at the point where I'm supposed to decrease.  Eek! why do I make things more complicated then need be? lol.
