1  Kitchen Reno in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by tasha_tuk on: July 14, 2008 11:56:19 AM
My hubby and I decided to tackle our kitchen during our vacation in June.  We painted and tiled our backsplash. I am so proud of us for finishing it, but we have decided that next time, we hire someone! lol (Sorry guys, I suck at posting pics...if Craftster would link to flickr we would be set Cheesy )


Video(shows the best color)

Now I just need to buy some nice retro appliances (toaster, blender etc), although it is a basement apartment so we won't be spending too much money for down there!

2  Dewey Defender! (image heavy) in Halloween Costumes by tasha_tuk on: October 31, 2007 11:08:51 AM
I work at a library.  This year my coworker and myself decided to go as superheros.  She is the Super Librarian and I am the Dewey Defender.

I made all of my costume (up later than planned last night finishing it).  I just wanted to include her costume so you could get the idea.  I got sick of people asking me who I was, so I finally taped that onto my back.

3  Hoodie and Capris - May be considered pic heavy by some in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by tasha_tuk on: June 22, 2007 03:34:30 AM
I finished these about 3 weeks ago, but I just now got the hubby to do a crappy photo shoot for me.
This is the pattern

After some discussion in this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=165045.msg1677449#msg1677449, I figured out how to do buttons instead of a zipper (I hate when zippers bunch on sweaters, so I said screw it and did it my way).
And so here are the pics:

I wear the hoodie more than all of the other things I have made combined.  It is awesome, so comfortable.

4  Buttons instead of zipper? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by tasha_tuk on: April 19, 2007 04:04:17 AM
I am planning to make this hoodie (http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M4789.htm), but I hate zippers in tops.  I find that they always end up bunching as I machine wash and dry all of my clothes.  The material shrinks a bit, but obviously the zipper doesn't.
I was thinking it might be interesting to use buttons instead of a zipper. I can't really think of anything to stop me.  I however am fairly new at sewing (just over a year) and this will be my first top (although I have done multiple skirts and dresses, one with boning). 
Can anyone think of a reason not to use bottons?
Oh, this is the pic of the hoodie. (the pink one)

5  Another jumper :) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by tasha_tuk on: April 10, 2007 05:54:19 AM
I think I like this one better, although it is a little tight around my bottom Cheesy... Also I would like to point out that I do have feet, even if they are in my rainbow slippers (see this post about my feet: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=161419.0)

6  Advice on socks in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by tasha_tuk on: April 06, 2007 03:57:25 AM
Hey Smiley
I want to knit my first pair of socks.  I have some yarn I would *like* to use.  It is bamboo, US 7-8 needles, and I have two skeins so aout 380 yds.
I have a couple of questions...
1) is this yarn to thick for socks?
2) can anyone recommend a very simple pattern (preferably free) that would be appropriate?
Oh, this is the yarn....

7  Purple Cord Jumper in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by tasha_tuk on: April 01, 2007 05:16:41 AM
So, I finally got around to finishing this thing.  And I would have been done a lot sooner had I thought about it.  I was dreading putting in the zipper, cause not that I am horrible at them, I just don't enjoy putting them in.  So anyways, I had basted the zipper area closed (I find it easier to do zippers that way) and I tried it on out of curiousity. Well, I could get it on and off without a zipper....so...no zipper Cheesy lol
This is the pattern: Simplicity 4097  http://www.simplicity.com/dv1_v4.cfm?design=4097
Oh, and please ignore the socks, and the crapiness of any picture I seem to be in...

The cord that I used, wasn't very good for this kind of project.  I am hoping that by washing it a few times it will loosen up a bit.
I want to make the blouse that is in that pattern as well.

8  McCall's M5188 in Sewing Pattern Reviews by tasha_tuk on: March 06, 2007 05:20:46 AM
Link to pattern: http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M5188.htm?tab=jackets_coats&page=2
I found the pattern ok.  I had some problems with the collar and attaching the lining.  Next time I make this, it isn't going to have a linging.  I will figure out how to do without.
Here are my progress pics and my finished (not the greatest pic as I had only my camera phone)

Oh, and the jean skirt was a pair of jeans that I converted....yeah yeah...lol

10  Re: 2006 Completed Costumes Scrapbook! (completed project pictures & links go here!) in Halloween Costumes by tasha_tuk on: October 31, 2006 12:49:45 PM
Sorry about the huge pics....

I had a dress that I wanted to use in my costume.  I altered it a bit by changing where the slit was (it was one in the back, and I changed to two very high on the sides.)
It is based off of the Street Fighter character Chun-Li.
