1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / A little off-the-cuff... on: November 17, 2008 07:14:21 PM
Get it, heh, heh, anyways. I was inspired but a bunch of different things. I liked how it turned out. Thinking of adding a zippered pocket to the inside next time and see how that works...

Did anyone else get that the ribbon formed the shape of a heart...I had to explain it to a couple people which made me think it wasn't obvious enough. Oh well. Live and learn.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Cause hours at Disneyland suck right now... on: September 03, 2008 09:44:37 PM
...I have time to start sewing again. Woo! In honor of my 2 1/2 years as a Cast Member, I decided to make this shrt. It was super simple, super fun and I really like how it turned out Smiley

The shirt wasn't long enough so I added a strip from another T-shirt at the bottom.

Cut out the back and added grommets. I plan to use a prettier, less see-through ribbon later so I just used what I had...

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Burda 8316 and my first zipper (w/pics) on: March 02, 2008 06:41:36 PM
So my first pair of pants. Made them out of a simple linen fabric cause I wasn't sure how well my zipper would turn out and I didn't want to waste too much money. I was getting frustrated trying to decipher how to do the zipper by the wording in the instructions so I said screw it, and just followed the pictures and winged it. It's slightly crooked but oh well. These pants are super comfy though so I might use them as yoga pants or something.

Zipper! Woo!

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / First (completed) project! Yay! (pics!) on: January 17, 2008 02:10:21 AM
After starting a couple of projects I might have been a little too ambitious for (zippers are the devil) I decided to take a step back and do something super simple. So Voila! Boxers for the bf. Horray for cheap clearance fabric!

I know, I know, half of it is upside down.  But my mom got upset and demanded to know how I got the lines straight. Hell if I know...

Close up of the applique made out of felt. (Felt is fun to sew woo!) I just got the design from my Tokidoki purse, added a little embroidery and I think he turned out quite cute.

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Anyone tried to crochet socks?? on: December 12, 2007 12:18:18 AM
So I'm more comfortable with crochet than I am with knitting because I'm still fairly new to knit so I figured I'd try my hand at crocheting some socks for Christmas. I've been using my own foot (sz 9) as a measure to make sure they'd fit but no matter what I do or pattern I use, it's WAAAY too small! I make the largest size it has and even gone up two hook sizes and I just simply can't get it over my foot. I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem. I'm about to just call it quits and try to knit some because I just learned to use dpns and it looks as though it's more stretchy and would fit much better.
6  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Melt and Pour base substitutions? on: October 03, 2007 12:31:49 AM
Made my first batch of soap today and turned out as well as I could have hoped for. The book of recipies that I bought all called for the "Avocado and Cucumber" soap base. It worked well and all but for all my soaps, there's a bit of a smell to it which gets a little redundant when making different soap recipes so what I'm wondering is, will the recipe generally work the same if I substitute the A&C for another unscented, perhaps Goat's Milk, soap base?
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Confused and frustrated... on: September 18, 2007 04:59:29 PM
So I'm having a bit of a hiccup here. I've settled with learning how to knit through the internet instead of buying a book like I did crochet and I've come across something that's made me quite frustrated.

1. One site says this:
is what a "knit stitch" should look like
and this:

 is what a "purl stitch" should be. However http://www.worldknit.com/ explains them to be opposite. Which is correct.

2. And second, why is it whether I do a "knit stitch" or a "purl stitch", it ALWAYS turns out like this one??

Grr. Learning to crochet wasn't this hard...
