I haven't followed the link yet, but from your pictures it looks like two squares, one larger than the other, stitched together. I'm gonna have to try and make one soon. I get hot and turn the air up and my little one shivers. lol
Ok, so I know this is old, but just in case anyone like me is looking just for the heck of it, I brainstormed and came up with an idea. One I might do in a few months, actually. I work in a doctor's office, so I have a lot of patients coming and going. We raise money every year for Relay for Life and we come up with ideas for how to raise money. I am thinking something really cool would be to have all different colors of ribbon, to coordinate with the types of cancer ( or if you are doing all illnesses, check those too) then have people buy a length of ribbon for say $2.00 or so. Allow them to write their loved one's name on the ribbon and tie it to the tree. Not only would it be very neat looking, but it would also be a great reminder of the struggles everyone face through life, and the strength that is behind them to help them fight for a cure. I'm thinking I might be doing this in October...have a Breast Cancer memorial tree. Now to find some pink Christmas lights.....lol
Dang, I missed this none, and would have been right up my alley! I've been wanting to find someone to swap anything with me, just for fun, as an ongoing no rules swap. Maybe someone who loves my crocheting/knitting/photography abilities and they do things that I can't do but love, and just periodically send random things to each other. Kinda like a smile in the mailbox to brighten up the day. Maybe I can catch this swap the next round.
I have a question before I decide to join. Do you have to have a DSLR camera? I do not but I do have a pretty good camera. It is a Nikon L110, takes pretty good pictures. And I just bought a vintage Canon AE-1 Program that I am playing with to get the hang of (first roll all came out too dark). Would that be ok? I absolutely LOVE photography!
I agree with what someone posted earlier....any chance on getting a tute? I would LOVE to make these! There is a music festival that people attend every year in my small town, and they would LOVE these! Even if you were to sell your pattern on Ebay (at a reasonable price) I'd buy. I think I could figure one out on my own, but the problem is how to know what size you need to fit the frame. I'm always better with a pattern than freestyling it. LOL!
I am sorry if this topic has been asked before, but I didn't have time to look through all 143 pages of topics.
I have recently started making crochet flowers to attach to the hats that I make. My idea, though, is to make them on clips so that they can be interchanged if you want to change up the look on your hat/shirt/headband/etc.
I bought these hair clips from Wal-Mart (we don't have a craft store here in our town, its 30 minutes away) as well as some bar pins. While I like the bar pins because they have holes in them to sew the flower on, the hair clips do not. So my dilemma is how to attach the flower to the clip.
I have some Tacky Glue, that says holds everything, but I am wondering about a low-temp hot glue. Would that melt the yarn? Would it hold better than the tacky?
That's so cool! You could use the same colors and make her a bag to attach to the front to carry things in. I work at a dr's office and see a lot of people (young and old) on walkers, and they have a bag on the front for their things - books, magazines, medicines, even their knitting/crocheting!
Good job jazzing up a plain ole walker! (p.s. I did the same for my BF when he broke his leg. Camo crutch pad covers! Everyone LOVED them, wanted to know where he got them! "My ole lady made them." LOL!)
I'm glad you liked it all, Cate. I was kinda worried the arm warmers would be the wrong size. I kept trying them on, thinking "Ok, do they feel ok?" LOL! Glad you like the bag, too. I was going to put Abby on the shirt first, but changed my mind last minute because of the way it turned out. I'm now looking for a hot Gibbs photo I can put on a shirt for myself. Hehe. And I'm glad you liked the earrings, too. I made a pair for myself, too, but they broke my ears out.
As for the "farting Bert", I wonder....can't you get your own recordable stuffed animal inserts at Build a Bear stores? Record a "fart" noise, then stuff him in a Bert. Of course I don't know if you can just walk into a BaB and say, "Oh no, I don't want to buy YOUR stuffed animals, I just want the sound-thingie so I can make my own. Wait, you don't have a sound-thingie that farts? What about this recordable one? Will you fart for me and let me record it, then let me buy it? No? Ok, can you just sell me the recorder, please?" LOL!
