I have been having fun with the knitted mermaid tail I made for my 1:6 scale dolls. I used Cotton Classic yarn by Tahki Charles Stacy. The models are Barbie, and a 27cm Volks body with Mattel head. The furniture is by Mattel & Re-Ment.
I wanted to transform my Barbie into a siren of the sea, so I designed this pattern for her. I used 1 skein of Cotton Classic yarn by Tahki Stacy Charles and a long US 5 circular needle for the magic loop technique.
I have been working on a series of knitted hat patterns that my boyfriend would like...The Boyfriend Hat series. They are simple but stylish. I hope to design more. They are mostly made from Cascade 220 yarns. Here are the first three:
I have created a new knitting pattern, Batgirl Gloves. Fight crime and keep your hands warm at the same time. These fitted fingerless gloves allow you to harness the feminine power of Batgirl.
My quest is to create knitting patterns that capture the spirit of feminine confidence and power but also have a sense of humor. Batgirl is an icon that captures this spirit. I was inspired to create this pattern after seeing this adorable photo, http://blog.craftzine.com/archive/2007/10/favorite_costumes_from_the_mak.html (scroll down a bit), of Natalie Zee Drieu, Senior editor of Craftzine.
I completed the last project I started at the last LA Fiber Guild's Felt Study Group last month. We all worked on the resist method.
The bag is made in one piece. I used a pre-felt fabric from Outback Fibers for the branch design that I cut out and wet felt onto the bag's surface. I sewed two short seams into the corners of the bag to give it more of a boxy structure. I added rivets to secure the handles in place, and made a felt ball for a toggle closure. I used wool blend yarn to sew a blanket stitch along the top edge of the bag for extra durability. I am really happy with how it turned out and am looking forward to making another.
