"In the future we will have robots for everything. But our clothes will be made from the rubbish that piles high around us. We solved the problems of world hunger and slave labour in one move when half the population was wiped out in natural disasters, while the remaining land is used to grow food, not cotton."
I created a paper model of London to show you guys! It is all in white, because the focus of this is light and shade, showing the passing of time and seasons. I am thinking of turning it into a short film of the shadows jumping around the piece.
So far I cannot find anything, Simplicity, McCalls, Vogue and Butterick don't have anything. If anyone knows where I could find one, or just tips on making them, please point me in the right direction! Thanks a lot, Madeleine
I had a problem with a swap partner, in that she did not deliver on time, it was quite hard to contact her and she didn't post any pictures of my swap for ages. I looked on her profile and saw that she was participating in many different swaps at the same time, which led me to believe she had taken on too much work for herself and couldn't put in the same amount of effort that everyone else had. It is just a thought, that people should perhaps only be involved in 2 swaps at a time, unless they have a REALLY high feedback score.
The yarn is Sirdar Eco-wool (its undyed) and some coloured yarn I found in my stash pile. I remembered afterwards that the red yarn runs all over the place, so I am going to have to be careful not to get the bag dirty as I will not be able to wash it! Apart from that I am quite pleased with it and think its cute!
I can read the graph patterns and have made the individual pieces. However I am really confused as to how to put it together. Has anyone else made this before? The body piece I made looks like a squishy ball, so am I meant to close the hole and turn it on its side to get the right shape? I don't know if I am making much sense, I'm sorry! But if anyone could help me I would really appreciate it.
I made Millie (in red) for a friend's birthday, and then had enough felt left over to make two more (Fran in blue, and Beatrice in white). The material is hand felted wool, which I then cut into the pattern and handstitched together. Their clothes are also hand stitched.
They are fragile and turned out creepier then I planned, but I think they are cute all the same. Beatrice is my favourite, I might find homes for her and Fran.
Working with fur yarns. I either cannot see the stitches so cannot count them properly or see which stitch to go in next, or sometimes even with the right number of stitches the crocheting is unexplanably large or tiny. Is this just me or does anyone else have this problem? Anyone got any tips for working with fur yarn?
