Oh wow. That just totally reminded me of this comic I love called Girls with Slingshots. One of the characters made up t-shirts for her group of friends this reminds me of

That looks AMAZING on you! I'm the same size as you are, so I think I might give this one a go. I haven't actually found any patterns I really liked enough to do (I usually freehand), but this one I might just have to try Smiley Great job!

Great job! That looks very well done and definitely like it'll hold up in "battle". Also, your man is quite a looker, you lucky gal Wink I think my fiance would look great in garb, but he's not into that kind of stuff. I'll settle for a kilt though Wink

17  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: Crafty But Stupid: YOUR CRAFT RELATED INJURIES HERE! on: December 18, 2008 12:23:54 AM
Let's see here. I've done the old "sewing machine needle through the finger" one... several rounds with a hot glue gun. A few shots at myself with the iron..

I think the best one was using an exacto to try and carve a piece of wood into a rosary for someone ._. Whups. It was going okay, but then the knife slipped when the wood broke, and went about half an inch into my index finger. I bled EVERYWHERE. I still have a scar Sad

I also got a nice scar while gardening. I tripped over one of my plant boxes and stubbed my toe... hard enough that I took off the entire tip of it. It was painful enough that I ended up blacking out on the couch after I got inside. Pretty bad.

I also cut a nice deep piece out of my middle finger with a pair of titanium scissors cutting snowflakes for winter at my old job.

I think most of my craft-related injuries are usually from sewing needles though. I can not get through 5 minutes of a project without stabbing myself.

I make yeast bread regularly, and all I need is all-purpose flour for it. No special kind.. Here's the recipe I use.

4 and 3/4 cups of flour
one packet or 2. teaspoons of yeast
2 teaspoons of salt
2 teaspoons of sugar
2 tablespoons of butter/oil
2.5-3 cups of water (hot water)

Set aside one cup of flour
Mix in the yeast, sugar, and salt (Mix it really well with a fork. It helps keep it fluffy)
Mix the butter/oil with the water (I usually start with cold water, add the butter, and then microwave for 2 minutes in a ceramic bowl)
Add water to flour mixture, stirring in a circular motion pulling the flour up from the bottom.
Once it's in a loose-ish ball, start adding some of the set aside flour to get it into a firmer more manageable ball.
Once it's no longer too sticky, let sit for an hour until it doubles in size.
After it's doubled, knead it with more flour (as much as is needed to keep from sticking to you or the kneading surface. You can take out more than the cup advised for this)
Roll out into rectangles about 10x16"
Roll the rectangles up lengthwise into baguette-style rolls, fold the ends under them. Stick on a cookie sheet.
Let sit 4-6 hours until they have doubled in size again.
Bake 15-30 minutes at 425 until molasses brown on the outside.
When you take them out, grab them from the pan with an oven mitt or towel, wrap them in said towel until they cool. That keeps the crust crunchy but not overly hard.

And there you go Smiley This is the bread I make at least once a week. My hubby loves it Smiley
