1  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / a fan of knitting? warm up winter! on: July 30, 2007 05:17:45 PM
hey guys,

a long, long time ago, there was a post very similar to this one. but since that one has passed on to a very peaceful place somewhere within the zillions of craftster posts, i thought i may as well begin a new one Smiley

so, as you most likely do not know, i have created a charity/program/whatever, called warm up winter. it's based out of halifax, nova scotia, and this is how it works: basically, we're looking for knitted squares 5"x5". when we collect enough of these knit squares, we sew them all together to make wonderful blankets. it takes 60 of these squares though; thus, it takes some people a bit of a while to be able to make one blanket themself.

HOWEVER THOUGH, considering the huge amount of talent i've seen in this forum, i think that it would probably take you craftsters a jiffy to create these squares. and Warm Up Winter doesn't stop at just those little squares; oh no. WUW also accepts hats, mittens, slippers, scarfs, socks...you name (or knit) it.

once we have collected enough of these blankets and other winter accessories, we pass them onto other organizations which help homeless people, and people living in poverty.

if this explanation is a bit sketchy, theres a bit more info at our [old-school myspace] website, www.myspace.com/warmupwinter. it would be superb if you could visit, or drop us a line, or even go as far as becoming our friend Smiley

thanks so much for reading this novel, and don't hesitate to pm/email me if you have any questions!

i was just wondering about these skirts at AE.





are they just circle skirts? and how do you think they have the waistband like? is it buttons, or zipper, or just elastic..?

thanks Smiley

there used to be a really nice pair on craftster with a tut, but they deleted all the pictures.

theres also the t-shirt pants/shorts, if you want:

thank you !

if i was able to hold the shoe straight while stapling the fabric to the bottom of the shoe, i would've been able to manage using only half of the staples i used. but the shoe kept on sliding, making the staples go on angles.

i should probably put up a picture of the bottom, since that made no sense whatsoever.

these were made from a second hand wool sweater, fake vans, and lots of staples.

they are so warm, even if they do look like big socks.




don't ask about why i was taking pictures in the bathroom...cause i don't even know.
