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

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

9  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Trying to find a particular thread - pink bear rug? on: November 17, 2008 07:40:24 AM
I'm sure I saw a thread on Craftster in which some fabulously talented lady had made a bright pink 'bearskin' rug - only she'd modelled the head herself and it had tufty pink fur.

I'm trying to explain it to a friend cos it's just the coolest thing ever, but I can't find it  Angry

It's like looking for a needle in a haystack on this forum, there's so much stuff  Grin  Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks  Grin

eta - thank you for moving me here! I didn't know which forum to post in  Cheesy
