1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Burda Easy Fashion tam pattern on: August 28, 2008 11:42:04 PM
In last year's autumn/winter edition there was a beautiful pattern for a knitted tam o' shanter style hat (compete with pompom). Does anyone know where I can find a back issue or has even got one themselves?
2  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Dying a wool-acrylic mix on: August 28, 2008 11:30:26 PM
I've just ordered some great yarn, but it's not quite the shade I want (but exactly the right price, so I had to get it  Wink) so I want to dye it. It's a 50/50 wool-acrylic mix; obviously the wool will take on the dye and the synthetic fibre won't. Will this look mottled and patchy or do you think the colours will blend well? I'm not aiming to change the colour completely, mind, just deepen the shade from lilac to something darker, maybe with a hint of berry...
Any suggestions/experiences/tips from all of you wise and experienced crafters? Wink

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Shrink plastic pendants on: May 04, 2008 12:33:06 PM
Two things I've made in the last months since I've discovered shrink plastic.

First, W.W.A.P.D? - meaning 'what would a pirate do?' - google 'Flying Spaghetti Monster' - for more noodly goodness  Grin The other thing is an entry badge for Vienna's museum of modern art (MUseum MOderner Kunst).


Then this lovable little fella who hasn't got a name yet (any suggestions?). He's a complete rip of someone else's work I saw on the board.....so no originality whatsoever, but the idea was so fantastic. Oh, how I love him  Cheesy


And another pic with nifty shadow....


Hope you like 'em  Wink

5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Stencil alphabets on: October 17, 2006 12:54:28 PM
Hi there,
I'm getting increasingly annoyed with having to cut out every single word I want to stencil; do you guys have any ideas on how to make a kind of modular alphabet that can be put together afresh for every new stencil? Part of the challange would be keeping all the letters in line and with the same spaces in between. Something a bit like those stamp sets that come with rubber letters and the little tweezers  Smiley
Hope you have some ideas!
Hana.
