1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Oh anthropologie!!! Sexy cardi! must make! on: June 03, 2008 10:22:04 PM
C'mon, I know you've all had a similar experience. You're looking at the anthropologie website, just admiring all the sexy sexy clothing, the simple design, the absolute beauty, and then you see it. It's that one garment that you can't afford, but Desperately need! I met that garment the other night, her name is the pinwheel cardigan.

Please help a sister out. I'm not sure what to call those lovely little spheres of pleats. How am I ever to recreate them? The patches? No biggy. Me and patches go way back. But I think my life depends on learning how to make those beautiful little "pinwheels"

Thank you so much!!!
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Inkjet printer + Iron on stabilizer+ Fabric = on: May 18, 2008 05:19:14 PM
Ok so, I dunno if anyone knew this but....

Fabric CAN be printed on with an inkjet printer. Just cut a piece of fabric and stabilizer into the shape of typical printer paper, iron the stabilizer on, and run it through the printer like paper


Voila! You have your very own patch. No iron on transfer paper needed! You can buy a product called " bubble jet set" to make the printing more permanent, but if you're printing it out to use as a patch on a bag or such, it probably isnt necessary.

4  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Rice Milk??????? Advice needed on: May 15, 2007 02:45:48 PM
I am looking into alternatives to milk as I'm still making progress into being full vegan. Some websites vouched for soy, while still others proclaimed that soy milk was harsh on the stomach.
Another website claimed rice milk was an excellent choice, but lacking in any nutrients or health benefits.

Then I found a website that touted the claim that to drink rice milk is essentially to drink "starchy water" and you can make your own.

The recipe they provided was to boil 2 cups rice to 10 cups water, adding sweetener or vanilla as desired. Being that milk alternatives are costly, has anyone tried making their own rice milk? or known anyone who has made rice milk?
5  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Banana Strawberry bread on: May 15, 2007 02:41:47 PM
I came across this recipe for vegan banana bread and modified it to accommodate strawberries as well. I baked a loaf last night and while the baking time was longer than expected, it came out absolutely tasty!!!

Preheat your oven to 350F

2 cups flour (I used wheat)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 ripe bananas
4 or 5 large strawberries
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup sugar (or alternative sweetener)
1/4 cup applesauce

Mash up your bananas in a large mixing bowl.
Blend strawberries in food chopper until mushy
mix up the bananas and strawberries well, add sugar
add the rest of ingredients into the bowl and mix.
pour batter into well greased loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes to an hour depending on pan size.

I used a bread pan, so I actually had to cook it about an hour and ten minutes. You should let it cool before eating as it will still be moist.


Overall I'd say this recipe was a major success! Hope you all can get use out of it.

I nearly died of excitement upon finding these and now, I present them to all you lovely craftsters. There are quite a few patterns on this page and they are really old so you are going to have to do some drafting but hey, nothing a yard stick and some paper bags won't fix.

This one is mostly crocheting/knitting patterns. But they have links to
"schematics" which again you will have to do some drafting on, but it seems pretty simple in shape.

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help!!!! Must make this dress on: March 04, 2007 01:54:23 PM
So, there is this amazing movie I know of, called Survive Style 5+ which is a japanese movie. I suggest everyone in their right or wrong minds see this film. One of the characters wears this amazing dress that I've fallen in love with. I'm not sure how easy it is to make, but I have my mind absolutely set on it. Any tips, help, or pattern suggestions would be much appreciated!!!
Since I'm a newbie I'm going to have to post links, sorry Undecided

To clarify, it has a bell shape, with bell sleeves, Turtlenecked front, and it has two rows of buttons down the back. The patterns on it are appliqued, and im not too worried about those right now, just the basic shape of the whole dress.
