Okay, I have a heel flap. It looks like this. I haven't slip stitched or turned or anything, my hook is where I left off after stitch number 8, row 6.

Ok, I'm confused.....I swaer if I can get through this one sock I can make a million from now on with no problem!

I took pictures to explain.

I am ready to start the heel flap, but right now my stitching has ended in the center back part of the sock, so I am already within 4 stitches of the marker...does that make sense?

So this photo is of the top of the sock....note the two stitch markers on left and right and my hook is on the bottom layer dead center with 4 stitches on each side.

This is the back view. Still 2 stitch markers, 8 stitches on top and bottom, and 4 on each side of my hook.

Did I mess up here? Should I pull out and start over? Do my socks look like they're supposed to?

Ok, back from my weekend trip to the beach, and as promised I'm posting my loot from TheSapphireMoon.

Some beautiful extras! Bracelets, necklaces, key chains, stickers, and bookmark! LOVE all of them, I wore those neckalces at the beach this weekend!

Next, some gorgeous fabrics she used to wrap everything in, never though to do that, but I will in future swaps.

A gorgeous shoulder bag! I used this this weekend too, the fabrics are awesome, and I LOVE the buttons used to hold the top together.

A half apron...is this made from a pillow case??? So cool, I'll be using it today when I make sauce. I normally end up covered in tomatoes. (Sorry this is hanging on the door to my back porch! I don't have a timer on my camera!)

A super cool apron top, it fits perfectly! I love these purples.

And lastly matching cropped wrap pants. I had never worn these before so it took me a few to figure it out. They fit well all over except the inseam is a bit short. It covers my front, but is a bit shy of covering my backside! I think it should be an easy fix. I'd love to know how to make these!

Thanks SO much Sapphire! I love everything!!!!

Heres a few of the other collars I've made. One is a sushi print, and the other a blue stripe. They're actually due for some new collars and a bath.

I was also not able to find much of a tutorial online, so I took apart a collar that I already had and used it as a pattern and put it back together with new fabric.

16  Sighthound Martingale Collars in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by stafishtaylz on: May 13, 2009 10:40:05 AM
After spending tons of money buying martingale collars for my borzoi I finally decided to make my own. I've made several already by taking apart and old one I had, and using it as a template for the new one. I think the hardest part was getting the bulk under the machine and stitching next to the hardware even with my zipperfoot.

These are two I made for my friends borzoi, Boris and Natasha!

17  Six Panel Fairy Applique Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by stafishtaylz on: May 13, 2009 10:32:48 AM
I've had this batik fabric for about 7 years. I bought way too much yardage for it, and it used to cover my couches in my first apartment.
So, instead of keeping it laying around, I took apart the covers I had pinned together and made a 6 panel skirt for a friend of mine.
I finally had practiced doing enough satin stitch to attempt an applique, and she loves faries. So, after googling fairy applique, I borrowed this idea. My friend was SO happy with the suprise.
This skirt ties in the back so the extra fabric forms a bustle.
I didn't take pictures of the finished applique, but this was taken after it was ironed into place.
Now if I could just get her to wear this with the suprise apron top I made her for Christmas and photograph it, I'd be all set.

18  Patchwork Scarves (Quick Gifts) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by stafishtaylz on: May 13, 2009 10:26:22 AM
I made these scarves as Christmas gifts, but never got around to posting them until now when I got the photos off my camera.

I had a hard time trying to figure out how to make a sewn scarf and so I came up with these. They aren't too thin, but they aren't too thick either. They're most just to wear out and not so much to keep you warm

I cut a bunch of fabric scraps and sewed them together in a long strip about 60 inches long. I backed that with corderoy of the same length and sewed them together with right sides facing. I left a 3 inch opening on one of the short ends for turning. After I turned them I top stitched all along the edges.

One is for a hippie friend of mine, the other for my punk sister, and the last for a friend who loves Ugly Dolls.

19  Pleated Clutches from Craftster Tute in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by stafishtaylz on: May 13, 2009 09:56:25 AM
I'm posting like crazy today! I finally uploaded all the projects from my camera that have piled up!

Anyways, I love the pleated clutch tute that I found here on craftster. It has rapidly become one of my favorite gifts items to make, especially since clucthes have been to popular recently.

Here two that I made, one for my sister with a skull theme, and one for my brothers gf who really likes black and red and something more classy.

I changed the dimensions of both to suit their tastes.

20  My favorite Not-So-Diaper Bag Pattern in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by stafishtaylz on: May 13, 2009 09:47:55 AM
Hello all!

About 2 years ago now I purchased a diaper bag pattern from craftapple.com. I meant to make a diaper bag for my then expecting sister. Well, to be honest I never made one, but I made a ton of NOT diaper bags for other people and friends.

This is the most recent one I made for a cousin of mine who is in college and a major in music. I usually leave off the bottle pocket when I use this pattern. I've made it in several fabrics, or just one and they always come out looking great either way. It includes 2 inner pockets and a cell phone pocket and is lined with fusible fleece. The directions were easy to follow and I would reccommend this pattern to anyone.
