61  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / cosie for house??? on: September 18, 2007 06:57:20 AM
Hello all,

I am doing a project odd monuemental art (i.e., Jean-Claude and Christo) and KNOW there was a cosie knitted or crocheted for a house in Toronto, but I cannot find it online anywhere (I HAVE found actual houses that have been knitted but no cosies)...do you know anything about this?

-THANKS!!!!!!!!

p.s. I'm posting this on the crochet and Toronto boards as well.

Hi all,

Thanks!

63  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Machine Washable AND Sturdy???? on: June 12, 2007 02:41:27 PM
Hi!

Is it possible to make a sturdy "keep it's shape while empty" bag that is also machine washable?  Interfacing is probably out, right?  I have some plastic structural supports from a bag that met its untimely end and am thinking those might be okay....

What do you experienced sewing godesses/gods think?

MUCH appreciated!
64  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / CrAfTy SkULL T` on: May 31, 2007 06:54:14 AM
So, I have been lovin' the crafster skull-t's but none of the designs showed my love of sewing.  So, here is my FIRST t applique...it is far from perfect, but it has charm...well, at least I think it does Smiley.  The material is a dark sea-green satin-y material from the remnant bin.

Here are the semi-crappy web-cam pics:

65  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Anger at an inanimate object...die kenmore die! on: March 28, 2007 05:26:19 PM
Okay, the title is a bit harsh, but TRUST me, I was SEETHING with rage at my sewing machine.  My needle keeps getting caught in the bobbin/metal bits underneath and BREAKING.  I opened the machine, and tried different bobbin positions, but NOTHING!  And I was all geared up to sew...such beautiful fabric awaits me!

Anyway, I have had this beast since 2000 and it has been a fairly okay machine (the tension can be a pain, but that was more of an issue when i first started sewing), but if my dad (an instrumental mechanic, electrician,...the list goes on!) can't fix it, I will have to bit the bullet and get a new machine.  In my little bit of eastern Canada, the places to shop are wal-mart (how I LOATHE that place), sears, the ONE fabric store (FabricVille, and I'm not even sure they sell  them anymore...), and zellers.  I am NOT looking forward to the task of buying another (I anally research every detail of "big purchase" items before I but...it took me MONTHS to get my computer:) ).

So, this has been a rambl'in rant, but I needed to vent.  AND the inner rage HAS cooled (a bit).   Please feel free to share your own love-hate relationship/horror stories about your machines.
66  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Amigurimi Deer on: March 27, 2007 07:12:13 PM
So, I decided to make an amigurimi fawn for a friend who LOVES deer.  I couldn't find a pattern (and I hate reading them anywho!) so I made my own design (AKA making it up as I went along...).  I am pretty pleased with the end result. Sorry for all the links, but I am new!


The beret is removeable

Button-bottom!

Specifics:
*about 15cm (6inches) high and 15 cm long.
*the yarn is all from my thrift-store stash so I don't know the brand, weight, etc.  A white baby yarn was used for the body, thin rose-coloured yarn for the nose and curly/crimpy green yarn for the beret and scarf.
*the "spots" are buttons and irridescent beads from my stash.
*stuffed with cotton balls (Well, cotton/rayon balls....), I just love stuffing amis with them!
*done with a number 1 Boye hook from my nanny.

Thanks for looking and I hope you like this little one!  If you have your own ami deer please post them! Smiley
67  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Fabric Scraps and Pillows? on: March 12, 2007 07:17:57 PM
I just wanted to share a little trick I recently happened upon.  If you want a "heavy" non-fluffy feel to a pillow (like a feather-bed), fabric scraps are a great stuffing! They are also great for pincushions.  Has anyone else done this?
