21  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / looking for knitting pattern for hat similar to topshop ones... on: November 13, 2007 03:08:19 AM
hey guys.

i saw these hats on the topshop website:


in order of preference  Wink. since we don't have topshop over here i can't just buy one. and where's the challenge with buying anyway  Wink

does anybody know a pattern of a hat/cap like that? or could you give me any hints on how to do them?
thus far i "only" knitted socks and i'm not very experienced with knitting patterns...

help please!

cheers  Smiley
22  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / cosmetic bag *with bow tutorial* on: November 11, 2007 01:58:52 AM

i used this tutorial for my cosmetic bag: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=176509.0

it's a present for my colleague who knitted a scarf for me when i was home sick with torn ligaments (i'm not at home anymore but still hobbling about...). so i thought i had to sew a little something for her in return.

this is it:

it's strongly inspired by a bag i did for a friend's birthday (and hey, i still did have a lot of fabric and ribbon left Wink ). you'll notice the likeness Smiley and believe me, i'm really good at doing bows now  Grin

what do you think?
23  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / bob dylan tshirt for my brothers birthday on: November 11, 2007 01:49:15 AM
this is my second stenciling project. my brother likes bob dylan a lot, so i did one of him and he'll get it for his birthday Smiley

the stencil looks very patchy on the photo but it actually isn't. it's solid black. don't know why the flash let it look so patchy Sad

have a look:

24  EUROPE / GERMANY / Zutaten für Kosmetik im Internet bestellen - wo?! on: November 08, 2007 01:05:57 AM
Ich würde mich gerne mal an Kosmetika und Seife versuchen und bräuchte dafür solche Dinge wie Seifenformen, Rohseife, Seifenfärbemittel, Duft für Seifen, Bienenwachs Pellets, Shea Butter, Mandelöl, alle möglichen anderen Öle, Lipgloss Schüsselchen, etc

Weiß jemand einen deutschen Versand wo man Dinge dieser Art (möglichst billig) bekommen kann?

Danke  Smiley
25  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / my first pair of socks :) on: November 02, 2007 02:41:22 PM
i just finished my first pair of socks! was at home on sick leave because i tore the ligaments on my left ankle running for the train. stupid me.  Sad anyway, a lot of time for knitting - and just in time for the cold days...

what do you think?

i have another ball of wool here and will start with a new pair tomorrow. this time with a pattern i think Smiley

26  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / new shopper bag with ribbon and bow on: October 28, 2007 03:55:59 AM
hi there,

this bag was finished last night and i wondered what you think of it? it's a bag for a friends birthday  (who ordered a bag for all upcoming birthdays, christmas etc when she heard i started sewing Wink ).
i use this pattern: http://www.ottobredesign.com/fi/kaavat/pdf/purse_EN_5-07.pdf but as i thought it would turn out too small, enlarged it by 1.5 and have a nice big shopper now to hold a lot of stuff.
all the fabric is from ikea and i ironed on interfacing on the outer parts. it's quite stiff now and stands on its own.
but i especially like the ribbon and little bow - it really spices it up  Smiley

what do you think?
27  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / my first stenciling project - come with us to the world of the mighty boosh on: October 23, 2007 12:42:21 AM
hi folks,

i proudly present my first stenciling project. being one of the biggest mighty boosh fans ever (for all of you who don't know it, it's an english comedy series) i had to do one of my hero vince noir (aka noel fielding) of course.

(the shirt looks a bit spotted on the foto, but actually it isn't.)

i think it turned out really nice for the first try. although i'm not pleased with my colour application: it's too patchy.
what do you use to apply the colour to the fabric?!

haaaaa, i'm so looking forward to wearing this shirt  Grin Grin Cool
28  EUROPE / GERMANY / stoffe, nähzubehör und co in frankfurt?! on: October 21, 2007 02:55:08 PM
ich habe erst vor kurzem mit dem nähen (hauptsächlich von taschen --> https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=202989.0 ) angefangen.

daher bin ich jetzt ständig auf der jagd nach schönen, außergewöhnlichen und günstigen stoffen aller art, sowie nähzubehör, schnallen, knöpfe, magnetische verschlüsse für taschen, aufnäher, schnickschnack, etc etc...

bisher war ich öfter bei
- karstadt
- ikea (schöne und billige stoffe - perfekt für taschen)
- attia stoffe in der hasengasse (fand ich teuer)

noch nicht getestet
- martino stoffe ideen in sachsenhausen

hat jemand ein paar gemeimtipps für mich? entweder in frankfurt oder auch günstige und gutsortierte internet versandhandel?

danke Smiley
29  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / my first 3 bags - have a look! on: October 20, 2007 03:01:56 AM
here we go. i - a total newbie to sewing - proudly present my first three "masterpieces". i'm so excited  Cheesy Cheesy

1. obelix bag
it was my first try with sewing. my father called it "the obelix bag". oh well.... it was made of IKEA bedcloth because i didn't want to use "proper" fabric for my first try. but it turned out quite nicely, didn't it? thanks a lot to mgenevieve and here lovely pleated tote bag tutorial! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=49030.0

2. carina's bag
the second try, the same pattern. this time i used a heavier canvas with nice patterns and a simple black fabric for the lining. the handles were too sloppy, so i also ironed on some interfacing to make them firmer.
i also spiced it up a bit by using a flap and a button to close the bag (first button and buttonhole ever  Wink ).
this little beauty is a present for a friend so i personalized it a little on the inside pockets and tried out the letter stitching of my sewing machine.
my friend has her birthday party tonight, so i'm thrilled to see what she thinks about the bag (i didn't even tell her i started sewing bags yet, not to spoil the surprise)  Cool


3. "the winter bag"
this time a messenger bag for myself. i love how it turned out - the perfect bag for the winter season! i used this tutorial for the bag https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=2684.0 and this tutorial for the zipper pocket https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=11808.0
thanks guys - what would i do without your tuts!?
i had prepared the fabric one night (cut and iron on interfacing on the outer fabric) and sewed the bag the second night (took me about 5-6 hours to finish it).
for the outside i used a "fischgrat" fabric i got in the sale, a nice dotty one for the lining and a yellow one for the pockets of IKEA.
i'm so happy that my first zipper and snap fasteners worked out so well. you can imagine how proudly i wore this bag to work  Grin

i'm looking forward to your comments! i love this website. you inspire me so much... more bags to come soon (already got orders for upcoming birthdays and christmas  Cheesy )
