201  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: "Work Your Theme" ATC Swap Round 2 Gallery on: August 08, 2012 05:52:21 PM
I'm glad you liked them, KittyHerman. I didn't want to make the N card I chose be Naboo. I thought that might be expected, so I went on Wookiepedia to look up something different.  Smiley

Just sent in my questionnaire.  Grin This is perfect timing for me to join this swap, since I'm crocheting blankets for the hospice patients I work with. I can use the granny's daughters I get back in the next blanket. Smiley

 Grin What up, fools? (Thinking about Felipe Esparza for some reason tonight.)  Cheesy The last card I'm working on is going to be winging it's way to the faraway magical land of Winnipeg, as of tomorrow. And then my part is done. Yay me!

Any BTW, this whole ATC thing is much harder than I imagined it would be! I'm glad I only signed up for one group.  Wink

208  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Made a Lane Bryant shirt smaller on: July 29, 2012 02:59:24 PM
I just finished this modification this afternoon finally because my in-laws just left this morning from a 1 1/2 week visit. I actually bought this shirt in May from my local thrift store and have just been hanging onto it because I didn't have time to sit down with it. I think it was $2.99.

It's a Lane Bryant shirt, size 22. This is the before picture. I knew this would be a big shirt on me, but I loved it so much that I had to have it. The teal and brown are so pretty together, the fabrics are light and airy, and the embroidery on it (although machine-done) reminds me of a Moroccan design. I'm not a plus-sized woman, but I really did LOVE this shirt.

I knew this might be more of an advanced modification than anything I've done so far. I had to remove the stitching from the top and bottom part of the shirt first, on each side, so I could then take in the sides correctly. From both bottom layers, I took about 1.5 cm in on each side of the shirt where it was already pieced together. Then, I had to go back to that horizontal seam and put it back together.

I did really well with this one! I'm surprised that I was able to keep the vertical seams matching on the top and bottom, considering it was just the bottom I took in and not the top. I haven't taken an after picture but it's considerably smaller on me now and it still looks so good! Yay me!

210  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Anyway to mimic a knit stitch in crochet? on: July 29, 2012 07:20:53 AM
Hi there. I am a long-time crocheter but somewhat of a new Whovian. That being said, is there anyway to mimic the knit garter stitch but do it in crochet? I want to make a Tom Baker-style Doctor Who scarf but I can't knit. I can definitely do it with single crochets, but I have seen the knit garter stitch and just love it so much.

Thanks!
