11  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / Dyed Sock Yarn on: December 27, 2015 07:36:41 PM
I've never dyed anything before, but my twelve days of christmas swap partner had a whole pinterest board of hand dyed yarn, so I thought it was time to give it a try. I used the method where you soak the yarn in vinegar, then mix different shades of food colouring and inject it with a needle-less syringe. I'm not sure if that has an actual name?

This is what I ended up with:

primarily aqua blue, bright green, fuschia and dark purple


The picture of the back side shows some of the variant colours, the lighter blues and greens


I had a bunch of fun with this project. I guess the next step is figuring out how to turn my big oval of yarn into one of those perfectly twisted cylinders you see on etsy.  Smiley

I made this set for Abbeeroad, who had this quote pinned.







By far the hardest panel was the second. I must have watched six tutorials for how to make mini wire hangers. Not to mention I vastly underestimated how much free-form letter making would make cotton pucker. But I had a lot of fun dying the second and third panel. And I like how they turned out, and so does Abbee.

Details of swap:
This swap is not a partner swap. There will be groups of four, so every swapper mails to three people. Swappers will be making either 1 or 2 pendants for each member of their group, which will be assigned basically at random.  

The pendants can be made from any medium: leather, resin, cloth, beads, clay, bottle caps, rocks, glass, scrabble tiles, etc. Just make them awesome! If you sign up for two pendants, make sure you dont send the EXACT same thing. Ex. They can both be scrabble tile pendants, just a different image on each. You don't need to make a fully beaded necklace, this is a pendant swap, but please attach the pendant to a chain or cord or whatever goes around your recipient's neck.

Once the swap is closed I will send out addresses to all participants in your group. But you can start crafting now.


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 16 years old or, if not, that you have moderator approval(YES/NO)

What medium will you be using?
If you had a choice, would you pick gold or silver?
What are your FAVORITE colors?
What is your LEAST favorite color?
Describe your style in 3 words or less(funky, girly, steampunk, etc.):
Any allergies/concerns?
Do you have a pinterest and if so, link please?
Do you want to swap one or two pendants? (two will only occur if at least four swappers want to send two)

Please understand these questions are only a guide. You may not receive your exact favorite color, but hopefully it wont be your least favorite either. I really want this to be flake free, so only commit if you are truly willing to send to the amount of people you sign up for. But if you want to tailor the pendant specifically to each member by stalking posts, pinterest, etc., that is ok too.

Details of swap:
I love having cute cards to send with swap packages, add to gifts, or perhaps just to use at art and frame or stick on my french memo board and admire! This should be a fairly simple swap and I think that 3 weeks is more than enough time to craft. Shipping should also be fairly cheap.

Groups will be made up of 3 people, so you will be sending to 2 partners within your group. Send at least 8 cards to each of 2 partners, that is a total of 16 cards. Cards should be at least 5 x 3.75 inches, (the size of Michael's clearance cards if you want to repurpose their envelopes) but can be bigger. All 8 cards should have an envelope. All cards should fold.

18  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / A Lets Go Alphabet Book on: December 23, 2013 12:33:25 PM
I decided to make my nephew an alphabet book for his being born present two years ago. Unfortunately I didn't swap enough ATCs in time. So instead he gets an alphabet at 1 and a half, for Christmas. It's got a Places To Go theme. The papers are all marbelized with shaving cream.









19  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / Beach Themed Alphabet Book on: December 23, 2013 12:28:08 PM
My nephew Rylan's parents are very into beach culture. Everyone on that side of the family has a cabin, and he first went at two months old. I started swapping for ATCs as soon as I found out about the conception. I hope he grows to love reading with the things that are familiar to him!

Every paper inside is a different orange or yellow pattern. The baby blue ink didn't stand out enough, so I stamped every letter onto white paper and then cut them out. It took hoooours.













20  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Double Needle Necessary? on: October 22, 2013 03:39:11 PM
So my mom used to sew all my family's clothing. Then she was diagnosed with clinical depression, and stopped sewing (among other things). We're all pretty curvy, so her drafted patterns work better than store bought clothes. I have theoretical knowledge of how to sew, though not a lot of practical attempts, and I've said that I want to take over this chore. Her replies have varied between 'I'll get around to it eventually', a sneering 'go ahead and try', and her most recent is "you couldn't sew anything anyway, the double needle broke."

Assuming that this is TRUE, do I need a double needle? The shirts are mostly knit fabric, and then there's cotton skirts and sweatpants. And if I do, what are the regulations? Do I have to get the same brand as the sewing machine? Can I get one from a fabric store, or do I need to get a replacement from the sewing machine company? Do they come in different sizes, and if so, what size do I need for sweatpants and knit shirts? Is there anything else I SHOULD be asking, but didn't know enough about sewing to know I should ask?

Sorry if these are dumb questions. I'm just new to this, and I can't realistically expect her to try to help.
