1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Lobster Costume for Baby-- need ideas on: October 16, 2004 07:17:57 PM
My husband decided yesterday that he would really like for the baby to be a lobster for Halloween. I went down to the craft store, and they had no lobster patterns. They did have a devil pattern, which I thought I could change easier than anything else. It's a pretty basic jumpsuit and hood. I've got red flannel, and some red sock yarn with which to knit or crochet various little bits, and stuffing. this is for a 7 month old baby, not walking yet, but should be sitting on his own by Halloween. Anyone have any ideas or tips? I'm a mediocre seamstress, but I'm an expert knitter and crocheter, so things that I can knit or crochet to put on the jumpsuit and hood would be great!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Can you felt a sweater *just a little bit* to make it fit better? on: November 25, 2003 06:20:57 AM
I completed a Philospher's Wool Sweater (100% wool) a month or so ago, but it hasn't got much wear. It's far too big for me and even for my husband. Is it possible to felt a sweater *just a little bit* to improve the fit? I'd be looking to shrink it 1-2 inches overall. The cuffs and neck are loose enough that I think I wouldn't have problems with it fitting afterwards, as long as I kept the shrinkage to a few inches. What's the best way to acheive some slight shrinkage?
