1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Love crafting? the UC DAVIS Division of Textiles & Clothing needs YOUR help! on: November 12, 2009 10:51:37 AM
I hope this is in the right section and I'm allowed to do this...

Due to budget cuts in California education, the Division of Textiles and Clothing at UC Davis is at a high risk of closing down. If you love crafting, clothing, and fashion and understand the importance of the textiles and clothing industry, please support us by signing our petition at:
http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/save-the-division-of-textiles-and-clothing

UC Davis Textiles and Clothing graduates have contributed to many sectors of Californias fiber/textile/apparel industry, the nations second largest, including research on many related advanced materials in the public and private organizations as well as education and research at the universities in the U.S. and internationally.

HELP US SPREAD THE WORD.

SAVE TXC! SAVE CALIFORNIA'S ECONOMY!
What is the apparel industry without fabric(textiles) and marketing?!?
How could one even DESIGN clothing, shoes, and other accessories without the textiles/fabric to MAKE them with?
How could you craftsters be so crafty without the textiles to make your crafts with? The shoes we wear on our feet, the yarn we use to crochet our winter scarves, and the fireproof jackets that firefighters wear to save lives are all products of the research done by the textiles and clothing industry.

That is super cute! I really want to make one now, so thanks for the tute. My only question is, did the knit unravel at all? Or did you just use a sweater with a small enought knit that it didn't?

thanks for the feedback everyone! the knit hardly ever unraveled. I used a basic forever21 sweater, you can see the type of knit here in this close up picture http://i775.photobucket.com/albums/yy35/musingofsorts/Picture5-1.jpg

hope that helps!

Just made this beaded beanie yesterday out of an old sweater! I also made matching mittens! I read the threadbanger tutorial a few months ago and decided I'd try making my own, except with a cuff.

If anyone's interested, I wrote a tutorial post that you can find on http://www.musingofsorts.com/2009/10/beaded-beanie.html

It only took me ~10-15 minutes to hand-sew it all up, but it would probably take less than 5 minutes if I had my sewing machine at school with me!

Definitely try it out! It's super easy and a great way to recycle an old sweater
