1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / link help on: June 24, 2005 01:59:52 PM
I remember someone posting about a site that had the recipes from restaurant dishes, like Red Lobsters cheese biscuits. Does anyone know the link? I'm hoping to find the recipe for Macaroni Grill's Carmela's Chicken.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Irish tshirt recon on: January 28, 2005 11:08:49 PM
So they were selling these five dollar tshirts with 'cute/funny' sayings about being Irish and such at Target, just in times for St Patricks day in about 6 weeks or so. It seems they have cheap little boring tshirts with sayings on them for every occasion at Target now.

Anyway, I liked it enough to get it, but knew it needed something extra...So after removing the original sleeves and playing around with some St Patricks Day/peanuts themed material I came up with this:

Nothing spectacular, I know, but at least it will look somewhat different to anyone else's irish themed tshirt heh.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / New confused knitter on: January 12, 2005 10:21:44 PM
OK so I got the lovely stitch and bitch for Christmas. Having tried knitting before and been way too uncoordinated to do it, I was fully ready to fail. So I started and got the first row on fine, so was pretty chuffed with myself, but now as I went to do the next row, it just seems to be getting tighter and tighter and winding itself around the right needle until it's like a really tight unmovable spiral around my needle.

Am I doing something specifically wrong, I swear I'm going by all the directions, and I don't get why it's doing this. It's frustrating as hell, especially me with a short fuse heh.

Please if anybody could help with this predicament, it would be VERY appreciated.
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / White Stripes Jordy Bag with a flap. on: December 17, 2004 12:18:59 AM
ok so this is my second attempt at the brilliance that is the Jordy bag. It all started with the lining material which I found in the Jo-annes holiday section for 50% off and instantly thought of the White Stripes.

Thus I came up with this, apart from being a jordy bag, I put a flap and one extra long strap because I don't think the under the shoulder thing suits me. comments please.

oh and don't mind my clothes, they're my 'I'm sick and I don't care how I look' clothes.

It's not the best, but I guess once I get used to making them I'll get better. Practice makes perfect and all that. Hope you like it.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Simplicity 5092 or My first attempt at using a pattern. on: November 16, 2004 02:20:44 PM
As I mentioned in LetsRead's thread, I too used the same pattern she did. It was my first time sewing an actual pattern, so I hit alot of bumps in the road. I made it to wear for the christmas gathering deal.

Letsread's dress looks SO much better than mine.

Here it is, please be kind:

  I'm wearing a puffy peasant top underneath and a belt to tighten it.

and here's the fabric up close up:

I really think they should write the instructions out as if talking to a five year old, just incase there are people like myself who has never done it before. Alot of it I had trouble getting right away, and since I didn't do regular fittings on myself through out the process (I just went by the size) it turned out a little too roomy.
So I put some eyelets in the back and made it corset style to tighten (that was after the picture was taken hence the belt).
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / chinese take-away purse on: November 07, 2004 09:47:08 PM
I saw this idea on Embellish This on HGTV, and thought I'd give it a try. So here's my first version of a chinese take-away purse.

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Jack Skellington money purse on: November 07, 2004 09:43:50 PM
I'm making a couple of these for little christmas presents for friends. I've never put a zipper in before, and I put this one in by hand so please excuse the messiness of it.

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Carol Duvall show duct tape wallets on: October 25, 2004 06:34:50 AM
For anyone looking for a tutorial to the ole duct tape wallet (in case you can't  find it from the many on here), they had a segment this morning where the lady made them out of duct tape and brushed velvet. I'm pretty sure the instructions will be in the show notes at HGTV.com.
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Lacey wristbands on: October 15, 2004 09:42:59 PM
I was inspired to make these when I saw some on this site http://www.willowtechhouse.com/main.html and didn't think I'd ever want to pay 45 dollars for a wrist band. So I tried to make some and this is what I came up with.

Not exactly the same, but kind of along the same wave length. I'm going to try and sell them on ebay. Don't know how much they should go for yet.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 3 new tshirts on: August 31, 2004 09:34:05 PM
ok so, I bought a whole bunch of tshirts from Walmart and a local flea market and here are some of the results thus far:
This first one, I cut off the sleeves and sewed them back on to make them puffy, I also drew my own design, cut it out and used it as a stencil on the shirt. Cut little holes in the side of the shirt to sew a ribbon on each side that go round and tie up in a bow at a back. I thought it was a nice touch, plus it tighten's the shirt a little. The last thing was to sew little bits of ribbon onto the picture of the girls hair to add texture  and match the ribbon on the back.

The second is alot less detailed. An already made stencil of hearts and ribs that I altered a little. Plus binding up the back with red stitching by pulling a bump kind of thing in the middle and hand sewing over it to look a little spine-ish.

The last has just painted on blocks of colour with a stencilled silhouette, and then a faux lace up at the back made with ribbon and safety pins.
