Did you melt each colour in a different pot when you did this?

How exactly do you get a "stretch capable" stitch? My sewing machine is from the dark ages so it can't handle anything too fancy-schmancy. Roll Eyes

I am having this problem too, plus when using straight stitch, the stitch keeps "popping". What's a way to overcome this, would using zigzag stitch help? Also how do you get stitches like on store bought t-shirts? Thanks.

I got my book for christmas, and it is wonderful. Knitting is sooo fun!
I was wondering if soeone could give me some tips on intarsia. I ahev just knitted a powerful wrist protection wristband but i knida made the "intarsia" up. What I have been doing is knitting up to the chart the doing what it says in the book ( putting the needle into the stitch then laying the new yarn over it and twirling..) the i just twirled the two yarns together each time then leaving the CC hanging and finnishing the row. Then when i get to the chart section again the the second row i twirl again and again then leave it hanging. does that make sense?  Smiley  Is that what i'm meant to be doing?

you can also take the head off a barbie and put it on the end of a pencil with some glue, it can be gory or cute, you decide  Smiley

Will tacky glue work on these?

I'm not sure if someone has mentioned this before, but these would make great christmas baubles. All you would need is some of the clear hollow baubles from craft stores and some microbeads. But you could use the coloured ones instead of the clear.

I just went out and bought some of these beads. For all you Australian people, They are called No Hole Glitter Beads, they are made by Darice and i bought them at the Riot art and craft store in Camberwell, Melbourne. They are about 10 bucks for 100 grams. They only had one small bottle of glitter modge podge so i bought some new tacky glue instead.
Wish I'd read the back of the blitter beads packet before i got home though, or i could be making them now! Here's what it says for anybody whose even mildly interested  Smiley  :

For Flat Smooth Surfaces:
We recommend using Embossing Essentials hight-tack double sided tape (now i have to go out again! Smiley  ) Apply adhesive to object and place in a shallow baking pan. pour glitter beads on to adhesive and press firmly, while "rolling" to ensure even coverage. Pour excess beads back into the bag to be used on another project.

For Dimensional Surfaces:
We recommend applying a thin layer of clear-drying rubber cement or jewelry glue. You may then roll the object onto the beads, or place the object in a recloseable bag with the glitter beads. Press beads firmly on to surface while "rolling" to ensure even coverage. Let dry completely. Pour excess beads back into the bag to be used on another project.

Hope this helps,

Millie
