1  Another super fat FBB in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by knotty_girl on: September 04, 2007 06:42:26 PM
I was inspired by this post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=185953.0

So I made my own, also using Thick & Quick yarn with an N hook.  Took me exactly 4 skeins.  I wasn't accounting for the weight of the bag with all of my stuff in it when I made the handles, so I think I might redo them shorter and wider.  Aside from that, I looove it.

2  Awesome quiche and chicken salad. in Recipes and Cooking Tips by knotty_girl on: August 16, 2007 10:01:25 PM
I threw a bridal shower for my best friend this past weekend.  I wanted to do a brunch style menu so I went to allrecipes.com and searched for recipes that had the highest ratings and best reviews. 

"Clarks Quiche" was the hit of the shower.  It was my first time making quiche and was by far, the best I'd ever had.  I don't like mushrooms so I left those out and just added more onions, ham, and bacon.  People were begging me for copies of the recipe:

The other hit of the day was the chicken salad.  It was so good I even hid some so the guests wouldn't eat it all, hah!  It had dried cranberries in it which were amazing.  It was even better the next day after it sat in the fridge over night:

3  Water bowl for Mina. in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by knotty_girl on: August 16, 2007 09:46:41 PM
I own a "paint your own pottery" studio with 2 friends of mine, so we're fortunate enough to be able to paint whatever we want, whenever we want.  I'm working on a food & water bowl set for my kitty, Mina.  I've finished one so far.  The other bowl will be identical except the colors will be inverted (white dots on a pink background).

I painted the kitty inside the bowl to look just like Mina.  You can't see it in the picture but I painted a spot under her chin, a spot on her butt, and a striped tail just like the real life Mina. Can you tell I'm obsessed with my cat? Smiley



The real Mina:

4  What to do with those pesky shrinky dink scraps? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by knotty_girl on: August 16, 2007 09:38:11 PM
Turn them into earrings!  I had lots of left over scraps from other craft projects that didn't quite work out.  I put them into small piles, heated them up, and while they were still warm molded them into these funky little shapes.  I burned myself a few times but: no pain, no gain! Smiley

My favorite:


A second pair:

5  Simplicity (New Look) 6587 in Sewing Pattern Reviews by knotty_girl on: August 16, 2007 09:31:07 PM
I made this a while back but I've only worn it once.  The pattern was very easy and I made it in 2 days (it was only the 2nd time I'd ever even followed a clothing pattern...yes, it was that easy).  I've since made another dress from this same pattern and have started on a third.  It's made out of some mildly itchy vintage fabric that belonged to my grandmother.  I like it but it needs something...fancier buttons maybe?   A belt?

6  Re: ugly sew along! (a little image heavy) ;) in Clothing Sewalongs by knotty_girl on: August 16, 2007 09:14:03 PM
I actually really like the way this is turning out.  I still have to finish hemming a sleeve and the bottom of the jacket.  Unfortunately, I've set it aside for now since the hem has to be understitched by hand and my patience was wearing thin.  I'll finish it up sometime this winter because I definitely do want to wear it. Smiley

Ugly fabric I used:


Close up of fabric (it's some sort of leftover burlapish fabric that I can only assume was used to cover furniture in the early 70s:


Front lining (leftover fabric my grandmother made drapes with a long time ago:


Me wearing it:


Another shot of the lining:


I'm going to add a nice old fashioned, sparkly button to the front eventually.  The pattern I used was http://img.sewingtoday.com/cat/40000/itm_img/M5244.jpg.  I made view C but didn't like the way it looked with the collar standing up, so I just folded it down.

Finally.  I finished this a while back but have been unable to locate the cords to my digital camera.  So, I justdecided to take pictures with my cell phone instead.

Anyhoo, I did a wrap around skirt from a 70's pattern with some fabric that's also from the 70s (leftovers from some curtains my grandmother made a long time ago).

Yay!  The more, the merrier. Smiley

Ok, so far out of my stash these are the ones I was able to find pictures ofon the web.  Of course, the one I like the most (McCall's 5279 from 1976) I can't find a picture of anywhere, so Il'l have to scan it later.
