1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / belated showing of medieval halloween costume on: December 06, 2007 12:10:31 PM
I participate in nanowrimo so this is my first opportunity to post, but here is (was) my halloween costume (my book was set in medieval england too :-)

I also made a hat, but it sort of made me look like the medieval princess leia.  Oh well.  I don't seem to have a pic of that one.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Dragonfable Dragon Lord Costume (rats, missed contest) on: December 06, 2007 12:18:14 AM
I had posted asking for help in making this costume, and thought I'd show the final result.  I used the headliner material (thanks to those who suggested it)

Here is the picture it was based on:
3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / *gak* I get to make this for halloween (help with dragonfable costume?) on: September 04, 2007 08:04:38 PM

Help me!  Please???

Oy, why can't he choose stuff that a) resembles *something* in rtw b) anybody else will recognize and c) won't take me 8 weeks to make?


This is for an 11 year old, who went as Link from Zelda last year and was puzzled about how the only people who recognized him were 20 year old guys...


I will say, though, that my 50 year old neighbor (lady) down the street recognized him too--she has increased in coolness in his eyes...

So the cape I can manage, we're going to use batting for muscles, and I know I can find chain-mail like fabric and liquid lame, but I haven't seen a forward view of this (and contrary to his suggestion, I am not about to play the video game for 5 hours to find it...)

Ideas?  I have many patterns for costumes for kids I can plunder for basic structure
4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / weasley is our king pins on: July 05, 2007 11:07:27 AM
We're happily crafting away here awaiting the release... my kids and I made these pins based on some we've seen :-)  I've also been making scarf bookmarks (knit) and puffskeins, I don't have pics yet of those but will post in the appropriate forum when we do. 

Hmm... what else can we make from polymer clay?  I loved the cornish pixies someone made but I  think that's a bit above our skill set just now ;-)

5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / has anyone ever made a mesh tummy panel for a skirt or pants? on: May 28, 2007 11:08:30 AM
I think I'd like to... but I am also not sure which fabric to use for it.  Obviously a non-stretch would be best (or minmal stretch) but I am concerned about strain on the side seams and also comfort.  Ideas?  Thanks
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / yoga pants pattern for stretch? For someone with a *cough* c-sect belly? on: April 21, 2007 01:19:13 PM
I have 99% of my patterns for wovens only, so this is new territory--but I got a nice high-quality knit and want to make yoga style pants (yoked?  Maybe...)

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / simply spring top from May Crochet! magazine on: April 09, 2007 11:28:22 PM
Has anyone tried this yet?

I've done the front but I'm working the back now and I'm having trouble because the instructions don't make sense.  In the neck shaping part, it says to sc in the first 45 sts, then slp st in 2, then turn leaving remaining sts unworked.  Then it says to skip the slp sts, sc in the next 43, then dec sc, leaving remaining sts unworked.  This makes no sense to me because I wind up back up at the top and there *are* no remaining sts to leave unworked.  In addition, I possibly screwed up because it seems to be having me do all of this at the bottom of the piece rather than up top where the short row inserts are.

I emailed the mag, but it's a really fast crochet and I have no idea how long it'll take them to get back to me (it's not listed under errata, I looked).  Anyone making this?


adding:  Here's a pic of the front of mine...
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / ack! can't find instructions for polymer clay knitting needle protectors--help? on: December 08, 2006 10:38:56 PM
I've googled and googled and oy  Huh

I need to make some for gifts, ds is making some with me--if you know of some pictures of some (yes I searched here too) and can direct me to a link, help?

I do have the heating instructions part down.  I originally saw the idea on knitty gritty but it's not on DIY's site

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / anyone made the wrap in Cool Crochet (Melissa Leapman?) on: August 09, 2006 03:53:53 PM
There is no website and I can't figure out why the instructions for row 2 seem to contain errata... if you have made this, can you help me out?  I think I might have to write up a chart.  Ugh.

10  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / sweet pea, finally done (pic) on: August 06, 2006 07:54:54 PM
Oh, the pain of being on row 30 or so and having to rip back to row 3... but I made a BIG mistake and things weren't lining up and stupid me, I didn't notice it at first since I was traveling while working on it and couldn't spread it out...

Anyway, at least it's done now!


I used rowan's summer tweed (silk and cotton) and this thing is suprisingly warm!
