Such vibrant colours! What do you use to colour your scrubs?
2  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Boyfriend's Toga on: October 23, 2010 09:54:43 AM
This is my first post in a long time! I've mainly been knitting and crocheting, but I still sew from time to time. Which brings me to this topic!

This year for Greek week (a week long event sponsored by all the Greek organizations on a college campus, such as Sororities and Fraternities) my boyfriend wanted to wear a toga. Rather than letting him just drape a sheet over himself, I told him I would make him one.

It took a good six hours to make this bad boy and I was happily rewared when he told me he recieved many compliments on how "professional it looked" and many people asked where he got it, to which he replied, "I have an awesome girlfriend, who made it for me!" Awww, he's so sweet!!

The emsemble is made up of the toga, a drap that goes over the shoulder and around the waist, and a cord to tie around the waist.

I made it in black and with gold trim, because his fraternity colours are black and gold.

I only have one pic for now, because my camera was dying.. However, I will take more pics and give a more detailed description of the outfit, if anyone should wish!

this is too cute! Did you use a pattern for your dress? I like the sweetheart cut for the bodice!

I got mine the super cheap way... I bought a lot of boxes from Wal-Mart and Jo-Anns after Christmas. I got them for $1 a piece!
It's basic LED Christmas lights. You don't need anything fancy.

Tho, mine in the picture are the icicle Christmas lights, because I like those the best.. They look good over mirrors and windows.

Also, experiment with the traditional coloured Christmas lights. I made some for my mum and she loves them!

Happy Anniversary!

7  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: Ferragamo Bag on: April 25, 2010 08:25:07 PM
I remember I was going to try this ages ago, But I never got around to actually doing it....

I wonder how this would look knitted? I was thinking of trying in the round, using a cluster stitch..... or seed stitch, which ever its called...
I'll try it out and get back to everyone in it!

Hmm.. thinking just a moment longer on it, I may just leave the knit stitches showing, I love the look of stockinette!
Either way, I'll give it a whirl..

I found something similar to this on ravelry ages ago..

Which was my original inspiration to make this bag, for a swap (it's on the second page, second to last post)
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Favourite ripple patterns? on: April 25, 2010 08:01:30 PM
Anyone have a particular favourite ripple knitting pattern?

I'm trying to find a variety of patterns and my make a blanket for my sorority sister, who is having a baby, YAY!!
I really wanna make this special for her, because she miscarried her last baby and she's pretty fragile right now..

I kinda like the look of this one, but it may not be baby enough... (of course I will choose baby appropriate colours)

and I like this one..
(I like the all knit on one side and all purl on the reverse)

Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
