Also, apart from the actual draping itself, I'm also confused by how they could have made them so that they don't shift, without having stitching showing...the pink one looks like such a fine fabric, I can't imagine it being topstitched but it doesn't compute for me that it can be held together any other way! Haha
So I want to knit a hat like this: except possibly with ear flaps. The only patterns I can find are crochet ones...does anyone know where I can get one? It doesn't really matter if it's cable/ribbed/whatever, it's just...I really can't crochet.
So my mum's decided to give me her old camera, which is lovely, but the problem is she has a big bag which everything kind of tumbles around together in. That wasn't so much a problem when it wasn't being carried around, but yeah. Any tips for making a secure camera bag for camera/lenses/filters/ninjas?
So. The age-old problem of transporting music rears its ugly head again. =P basically, I have a bunch of cds, the cases of which have gradually disappeared (as they are wont to do). Anyone have any ideas/know any tutorials/etc etc on a way to either make/customise those cd wallet/case/folder things (you know the ones) or another way to tote cds around, it'd be sweet. I tried searching, but I failed completely...maybe because I have no idea what to call the things =P
(also, sorry if this is the wrong board. it's not exactly a purse, nor a handbag, but they all...carry things?)
I'm not sure this is the right place for this but...I'm making a film set in the 30s (mid-1937 to be exact) and I'm making the costumes myself. They're more upper-class than working-class (except there might need to be a few costumes for an airship crew) and I can't seem to find very much information on it...or maybe I just fail at Google-fu.
So, basically, if anyone knows any good sources on this? Or is one?
My sister wants me to make her a laptop bag. It's going to be messenger-bag-styled. However, everyone else's messenger bags seem much stiffer/solid-er than the ones I make, which normally I like, but for this it would probably be better as a stiffer bag.
Does this stiffness just depend on the fabric used? Or is there some way to do it with less-stiff fabric?
It's very light and drapey and a little see-through...I'm not sure what to make out of it. I'd prefer to make summer clothes, but I don't want to just make any old thing, you know? I'd rather it make use of the lightness/drapiness. Yeah. It was going to be a dress with a circle skirt, but I got lost on how to hem them, so: any suggestions for what I could do with it? And what I can do about it being see-through, because I'd really rather not walk out of the house in transparent clothes.
Sorry if this is in the wrong place, and thanks a bunch
