Looking for Mccalls 6337 sewing pattern, if you have a copy you'd be willing to share/give/sell please let me know.  The bag costs $60 and I think perhaps I could make it cheaper/

 Love the little girl's sweater, and everyone is seeming to be very busy.
My daughter tried on her poncho last night, and she likes it! I just need to finish it around the edges, and do some minimal embroidery around the collar.
She knows if I get too detailed, she won't get to wear it this year!
  I'm planning a few photos during the day- today. Progress!
In regards to the embroidery~ I tested some line drawings from an embroidery design book yesterday, on iron-on transfer paper. I tested it on a scrap of the caramel colored wool, in a black outline print.
 I was horribly dissappointed! The paper is covered with a glue, that comes off with the ink, and changes the color of the fabric. Tracing the design with dressmakers carbon was too smudgy. I'm at a loss... It looks like I may have to trace an outline thru tissue paper with thread, then peel away the paper. Does anyone else have a better idea?

To transfer I have always coloured on the back of paper very heavily with graphite pencil, then put that face down on fabric, then put your picture on top and trace-push very firmly {an embossing this works great since if it does poke through it won't put ink on the fabric}, because it transfers only where you've pushed hard, you don't get smudges like with carbon paper.

Another trick is to use a light box {clear tupperware bucket with an LED flashlight works wonders}, place the picture face up, place fabric on top, and then trace - of course this only works with lighter fabrics.

........
And just now I've finished my first loom knitting project, a pet blanket:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v347/kksimone/IMG_0024.jpg

Since the cat slept on it while it was still attached to the loom--even sleeping on the actual loom--it is an absolute miracle that she's willing to sit on it now.

The border didn't quite work out the way I wanted it to, but that's the great thing about crafting for pets: they don't care.


I WAS going to turn an ugly christmas sweater into a door block by stuffing the sleeves with the rest of it but my cat has adopted it and you know if I even turned it into a cat bed he would never touch it again

I can't believe we're 8 days into the year and I haven't made one single thing. A couple of weeks ago I cut the corner of my finger off with a rotary cutter so I can't knit. Otherwise I'd be knee deep in dishcloths.

Abbey - Here's the link to the tutorial  http://www.tamedraven.com/2011/12/tutorial-easy-shrugbolero.html
It seems really easy but it was my first time working with a stretch fabric which went all over the place. I'll be trying it again but let me know if you try it!  Smiley

Bookmarked! I'll give it a shot! Stretchy fabric can be a pain for sure. Good luck with round two!

I'm hoping to make a dent in my list today.

Wow.  I have been working to keep up with this thread each evening, and it is inspirational!  You all are crafting machines!

I have been knitting a bit each night but have not completed anything quite yet, knitting-wise.  Last night and today I finished a couple sewing projects (warning -- I am a bad photographer!):

4. Flannel baby blanket for a friend's wee one:

 

and my new #6 - set of burp cloths for one of the many babies-to-be in my life (pictured here all packaged up with the blanket, the pics of the cloths alone were so blurry!):



I will be making more burp cloths -- they are quick and easy and look nice AND will be useful!

Quick question -- do you think the animal fabric is unisex?  I say yes, but my friend thinks it is "girlie"

Thanks for the inspiration!

Rockon
