11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Lion Brand Fishermen's Wool on: December 26, 2004 04:06:54 PM
I was wondering about this wool.  See, it is pretty cheap and very nice feeling, so I thought it would be great for felting.  However, it has the 'natural lanolin oils' still in it.  Would the smell be washed out in the felting process?  Also, can I kool-aid dye something and then felt it, or should I felt then dye?
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Patchworky Scarf on: December 15, 2004 01:28:56 PM
I had a ton of worsted weight yarn scraps in the general blue/purple color family, so I am making a k2/p2 long fringey scarf out of them.  It is going to be really cool! (I dont need any help or anything, I am just excited and wanted to tell people)

15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / very cropped jacket on: November 02, 2004 12:28:01 PM
okay, I tried the search already and haven't been able to find anything like this--what I want to make is like those cropped fitted blazers that are so hip, but really short.  more like a bolero length-wise, but still somewhat more structured.  does anyone know what I mean and where to find a pattern for something like that? and please not anything knit or crocheted...i have tried those, and now I am wanting to sew one.
16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / my halloweenie on: October 30, 2004 01:33:24 PM
well I have two Halloween parties to go to tonight, and I needed to at least have a holiday-themed outfit so I made this skirt.  it has just a regular elastic waist, nothing special.  I was still proud of myself that it only took an hr. and 20 min. because it is my second skirt *brag* sry....anyway here it is:

pardon the incredible mess that is my bedroom

and from the side

18  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / my ruffling method... on: September 28, 2004 12:38:59 PM
okay so I've seen a lot of things on this site that require ruffling and an equal number of methods to ruffle fabric...I thought I'd add mine to the fray.

what you do is:  take some adding machine tape (the thin flat papery stuff) as long as the width of the fabric to be ruffled, and tape the ends to your fabric along the top.  using elastic thread (make sure to wind the bobbin loosely or the thread will lose its stretch), sew a straight line across the top of the fabric to be ruffled right over the adding tape.  pull out all the remaining shreds of adding tape, and the fabric should ruffle up.  switch back to normal thread and sew your ruffled fabric to whatever it needs to be attached to, with the new stitches being within 1/3 inch below the elastic ones.  remove the elastic stitches and trim extra fabric.

I apologize if this doesn't make sense, I will try to post pics soon. 
19  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / help on purse idea! on: September 21, 2004 03:17:49 PM
I had an idea to make a jordy bag with a flap for my friend's birthday, and the idea was to make the lining some pattern of oriental brocade and the outside some tough but still pretty black fabric.  I was originally thinking some sort of velvet/een but I figured that brocade and velvet/een would be too difficult to sew, especially since I am a relative newbie.  Also I was wondering if oriental brocade can be ironed.  Any help with fabric suggestion, et cetera would be APPRECIATED LIKE WHOA. (And somewhat soon, her birthday is 10/22, and I will be going to the fabric store around 9/27))

20  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / pretty purple shirt on: September 17, 2004 07:44:19 PM
this is a shirt I embellished, using a hippo that another user had put on a bag and allowed me to pinch the image.  isn't it so cute?

edited: sry about the tiny and then huge image, I am still figuring out this resizing bit.  plus what is that big gray space at the bottom?
