1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Plenty of Plastic Canvas Items on: April 13, 2009 03:04:22 AM
OMG I ***need*** to see the doll's house  Shocked Grin

I've not used plastic canvas for years but bought some just this week - I'm planning to make a (working!) cuckoo clock  Grin

It would help if I could remember the first thing about sewing on plastic - any hints and tips?  Huh Grin

I'm wearing one of Maggie's Flowers right now - mine was knitted by Maggie's nana and I love it very much  Grin

It's a small crafty world and no mistake  Grin

That's cos they always disappear...  Wink

The pen disappeared  Grin  I was brave and dabbed a whole load of cold water onto the doll's face - it took a while for it to soak in properly but it did work eventually.

Phew  Tongue  Thanks all  Grin

Thanks both. I've obviously been lacking in effort when I try to dab it off! I shall try again tomorrow - with more vigour this time  Grin

Eeeek!!!  Shocked

I'm making a cloth doll and used a disappearing pen to lightly sketch her mouth before I painted it on. It didn't look right so I got the cold water and brush as usual and dabbed it off. So far, so good.

But as the fabric's dried, the ink has come back  Shocked Huh  And it's run up the thread of a seam line that I'd drawn over - it looks awful  Embarrassed

 I've used the pen many times before - it's occasionally left very faint marks on the palest of fabric, but it's never been this bad. It's a Prym 'Aqua-Trickmarker' and I used it on flesh-coloured stockinette with an iron-on interface at back.

Can anyone help? Is there any way of making it actually go away???

TIA xxx
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Re: Ball jointed doll type thing. on: March 22, 2009 04:18:06 PM
It's just a crocheted circle-cap. You crochet in a circle and add more or less stitches on following rows, depending what shape the head is that it needs to fit.
Try it against the doll's head as you're going along, so you can alter it if needs be.

I saw that tute the other day. It looks fabulous, I'm going to try it myself soon - let us know how you get on  Cheesy

Fabulous job Cheesy
9  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: Craft Fair Sales in the UK - anyone had much luck this year? on: May 11, 2008 08:47:07 AM
I'm hoping to take part in my first fair ever (eek!) at the beginning of next month. I went to have a look at it yesterday (it's a monthly event in our town) and it seemed ok, but not exceptionally busy.

It's going to be difficult to make it worth while I think, as the stall fee alone is 45  Shocked

I'm going to give it a go, anyway - it'll be worth it just to get out of my work room for a while, I think  Grin
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: How lucky am I - not one, but TWO free knitting machines!!! on: April 22, 2008 01:13:48 PM
Ooh, I'd forgotten about Ravelry! Yes, I'm a member on there - I'll go have a nosey in a bit  Smiley

sactownsue - in order to make something, I have to be able to figure out how to use the blasted things - there will be a LOT of cursing in this house over the next few days, I guarantee it  Grin
