1881  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: belt for a toddler on: September 14, 2006 03:57:59 PM
Have you seen those elastic belts with magnetic closures? They'd be hard to hurt himself with, and the magnets are pretty sturdy. They're about $2 at our school uniform supply store--maybe you could cannibalize ones for the special buckle?

No, I haven't seen those before.  That's a great idea!  Thanks!  Cheesy

My sweet, little 2 1/2 year old nephew keeps loosing his pants (bless his heart) and I would love to surprise his mom with a belt for him.  My criteria are a. I want something that he can't hurt himself on if he falls and b. a buckle that isn't going to slip open - like some d-ring buckles do.  I would really appreciate any suggestions that you can give me!

Very cute!! I love the rounded bottom of the bag and the fabric is beautiful.

I keep thinking about it .I want to make a small blanket to use some of my favorite beads in my collection but I don't knit  arggg yet  Undecided I keep on thinking about trying to learn well I keep thinking maybe I can find a knitting boyfriend  Tongue

I'm so glad that I inspired you Cheesy I totally encourage you to learn to knit.  It's not hard to learn, I even taught my husband to help me make christmas scarves!  You could also do something similar with crochet.

ps. good luck in your search for a knitting boyfriend!

The bag, without the handle is about 5" tall and 6" wide.

Thank you all for the wonderful compliments!  Grin I'm thinking about selling these and I was wondering, how much do you think they are worth?

I moved the image to a different server.  It should work now.  Please let me know if it doesn't work for you.

That is so cute. I love the beads. I'm going to assume (yes I know the dangers but I feel pretty safe this time) they were sewn on after.

Thanks so much!  Yeah, I sewed the beads on afterwards.

Do you have a link to the pattern?

I used the smocked cable pattern from The Encyclopedia of Knitting and made up the rest, so no, I don't have a link.  Sorry.

I made this purse while traveling and I'm so proud of it Cheesy  It's my first ever completed cabled project, my first lined purse and my first project posting on Craftster.  It's pretty little, only about 5 inches across. 

Comments and constructive criticism will be greatly appreciated!

like some of you said, Universities are a great place to get free stuff.  My friend's dad did the plumbing for a sorority and on move out weekend he would bring back bags and bags of clothes for his daughters.  Some of it was like brand new expensive stuff - think designer jeans.

*A word of caution - avoid the couches and matresses.  You never know who has been doing what on those things  Lips sealed eww!

Thanks for the ideas!  I like the knit/crocheted wire jewelry suggestion a lot.  I saw some really sweet crochet jewelry on this site http://knit-errant.blogspot.com/2006/07/crochetville-accessory-swap-what-i.html just the other day.  Maybe I can make something similar. 

The embroidery suggestion is a great one & the Sublime Stitching kit looks pretty cool.

Thanks again, jloveg, for the traveling advice.  Smiley  I love you fire started idea!
