Ok Saskacrafters, here's the deal; I am moving out of my apartment (to a house!!) and desperately need some cash. Because I am busy moving (to a house!!) I can't do the fringe this year. Is anyone planning to have a booth that I could hock my goods at? I would be available at least one day for relief if needed, and I would offer 20% of everything sold to my saving angel. I make one of a kind clothing; tops, skirts and bracelets. Please Craftsters of Saskatoon and area; you're my only hope!!
ps; did I mention that I'm moving into a HOUSE!! I'm really excited about it; my other half and I have wanted a house for so long! Anyway; any comments would be fabulous; have a great summer everyone!
So, that's my title, but what I'm trying to say is; can anyone tell me the directions to get the knit in this picture? I am an intermediate-level knitter, and I bought these fingerless gloves from a second hand store years ago. I apologize for the crappiness of the pics; the second one is on the palm, and it's stretched out a bit, which might help in identifying the pattern.
I REALLY want to recreate these gloves, and I've worked out that it has picot edging, and how to do the thumbhole, but I am not advanced enough to know how to get a texture from looking at it. If anyone could help me I would be so grateful!! I can post a tutorial if they turn out so everyone can enjoy these adorable gloves! Thanks a million fellow craftsters!
I've started an ambitious project; to make a "line" of clothing. I mostly make whatever comes into my head, but I wanted a cohesive group of clothing, to make me feel like a real designer! So I'm calling it "Glow" This is the first; "Hearts" and I am almost finished with "Moon" Let me know what you think! The hood is Uber-long; I love huge hoods! PS In Canada, particularly Saskatchewan, "Hoodies" are called "Bunnyhugs" just for your edification!
Just a qualifier: this bunnyhug is red with a pink hood; the color looks a little off; more of a red-pink. Just to let you know~!
HI! I received a wonderful Christmas present this year; the 208 Knitting Calendar with Desiree Scales & Friends. I started February 29th's project in January; a cute shrug. BUT!!! I have lost my page!! Oh NO!!! I'm halfway down the sleeves, knitting both at once in order to keep the same tension and keep the sleeves the same length; thanks to craftsters knitting forum tips! Does ANYONE out there have the same calendar? If you do, PLEASE could you scan February 29th's page and email it to me? I'm not sure if we are allowed to post email on the forums, so if you im me I will send you my email. Thank you thank you thank you in advance; the shrug was going to be my mom's birthday present, and now it will be somewhat late, but I still really want to finish it. Thanks again to anyone who can help me! -Lisa
Hi All you Saskatoonians and Area-ers! Just wondering how many of you are selling at the Fringe/ visiting the Fringe this year; it would be cool to see Craftsters in person! I am vending this year for the first time. Skirts, belts, bags. I know of one other girl who is vending. Anyone? I will list where I will be as soon as I know; I'd love for any Craftsters to come and say hi! See you there!
My sister wanted something pink because she used to be a tomboy, and she never wore pink. Now she's becoming a lady! So I sent her a drawing; she ok'd it, and I made her a bunnyhug! (You call them hoodies, but they were invented here in Saskatchewan, Canada, and they are called "Bunnyhugs."
Hope you like! (I made the pattern from scratch) ~Lisa
On June 15th, Burton Cummings and Randy Bachman did a Canadian tour called "First Time Around" These are two of the greatest Canadian Songwriters of all time;between the two of them there was The Guess Who (the original writers of "American Woman" for all you Lenny Kravitz fans) Bachman-Turner-Overdrive, and they both put out solo albums. I love love LOVE their music. I have loved it ever since I was a little girl and my dad gave me a Guess Who cassette tape and I put it in my Barbie Walkman and played it to death. ANywho, they came to Saskatoon, and I went with my parents to their concert (They are aging hipsters by the way - both Burton, Randy, and My parents!) I made my mom and dad t-shirts, and created a skirt named.... The Burton Cummings Skirt!! After the concert, which ROCKED, I waited at the back door of the auditorium for an hour and a half, made friends with the security guards and when Burton Cummings got into his car, and it started driving up to the tour bus, I stood in front of it waving my Sharpie, and he stopped the driver and got out and SIGNED MY SKIRT!!! WEEE!! I've never been like this for anyone, but I lose around those old hippies! (No I don't have a daddy complex; I am just in worship of their music) So, anyway.. on to the pictures! Thanks for any comments! 2nd Post guys! -Lisa
My mom and dad - can you believe they're both 50??
Me being REALLY excited!
I used an inkjet transfer to put Burton's Face on my skirt! Let me know if you know of The Guess Who, BTO, Burton Cummings or Randy Bachman; their music is AMAZING! -Lisa
So my fiance's brother decided he wanted to be pacman, but had no idea how. I got together with him, drew some sketches, made three trips to Fabricland, (one of which ended with a VERY flat tire) and this is the final result. My apologies for not having a closeup of the Maze on his shirt; it is 100% authentic Pacman maze (Level Three, I believe!) I Stuffed a globe-like shape with a 45 degree open mouth for the head, and made him a pull-on Ghost Hood that he could pull on and off. In the Black Lights, the Ghost looked amazing! I went as a witch, but I thought his idea was waaaay more original! (I wasn't allowed to be a witch when I was younger; leftover rebellion!) Kudos to Trent for the idea; Kudos to me, Lisa, for the execution!
