1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Jacket for a halter dress? on: November 28, 2004 04:36:56 PM
So I made this dress http://simplicity.com/designFrame.cfm?designId=11416&design=4998 (which was a great pattern, btw) for my homecoming/Christmas dress. It turned out great,  but I  need something on my shoulders to keep me warm. I have some great black fabric to use, but no idea what style of jacket would look best with a halter neckline... any ideas?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Ironing ribbing... (or: what happens when you give up on a project) on: September 20, 2004 09:07:49 AM
So I have this hooded vest I'm working on. I'm not even sure what magazine it's from, cause it's from at least three or four years ago. I started working on it the summer after my freshman year, on a road trip to Minnesota, and then I got to a difficult part and I gave up. Now it's my senior year, and I just picked it up again. However, I've learned that I developed a chest since my frosh year, and it no longer closes in the front...

So. It's made of a k2 p2 ribbing, and the instructions say not to iron the ribbing because it will lose its shape. However... if I iron it, will the ribbing flatten out and it will fit again?? I'm curious to try it, but I don't want to ruin it... I can add a band of something to the edges, but I'm not keen on picking up stitches.

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Little Engine That Could purse/bag on: September 03, 2004 07:23:29 PM
YAY! My first real post that's not a reply to something else!
So today I made a bag, based on this tutorial: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6530.0 I printed out the cover and back cover to the book "The Little Engine That Could" and then laminated then with that Therm O Bond stuff. The sides and bottom are four thicknesses of paper: a piece of scrapbook paper and three pieces of computer paper, glued together with a gluestick. The front and back are two thicknesses, the image and a piece of computer paper. Sewing it was a pain like no other, but it was worth it. I added grommets for the ribbon handles, which are very off center and backwards, but oh well. It will be used to carry my stuff to school, like a purse, only not. Smiley

My puppy, Toga inspecting the bag, to make sure it tastes good:

The bag, overall, with the ribbon handles and part of Toga's nose, unfortunately a very small picture:

The inside, and part of my lovely houndstooth school uniform skirt:

The side, lovely blue scrapbook paper:

The front:

And the back:

Fairly easy project, only took me an hour. If anyone has any tips on making the bottom corners easier to sew, I'd love to hear them!
