1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Squirrel Tail materials - need advice on: February 21, 2012 08:54:49 AM
I am in the process of creating a squirrel costume for an upcoming 8k.  Trying to figure out a way to secure a squirrel tail to my waist and then again at the shoulders.  I am using a faux fur material with a 3.5 long hair.

For the waist I am thinking about using parachute buckles and strapping to create an adjustable belt to strap the base of the tail around the waist/hip region.  It needs to be adjustable so it can be tweaked as the race goes on.  Things tend to shift when you are running down the road.  Any other ides on what to use here?

Next I need to secure the tail in an upright position along my back.  I found some adjustable clear bra straps on clearance and thought these could be attached higher up on the tail and worn over the shoulders to give the tail lift.  Does anyone have experience with the transparent straps?  Is tearing a possibility with the plastic material?  Again think of bouncing along for 8k.

I plan on making the tail as light weight as possible but will need to use batting to give it a dimensional look.  Any ideas for this one?

I am open to any and all suggestions!

It took me a while to finally get around to thiscasting on this  project.  I wish I would of knitted it sooner, it is such a great piece.  I used Cascade 220, it felts up like a dream!  The project took me about a week to finish.

Has anyone here completed the Dumpling sweater from Rowan Babies?

Here is my finished product... http://www.flickr.com/photos/steveandmarne/7841349/in/set-156056/

My daughter wasn't being very cooperative when we were trying to snap some shots of the sweater.  If you can see, it is a bit big for her still so we roll up the sleeves.  I kind of like using Rowan Big Wool for baby sweaters, it knits up super fast.  Plus I like the contrast of the big wool with little baby features, it isn't something you expect to see a baby wearing.
5  Ohio / Ohio: Central / Wolfe Fiber Arts Closing in Columbus on: February 03, 2005 06:15:16 AM
I spring out to the mailbox yesterday in hopes that some yarn I won from eBay would be there and instead I get a postcard saying that my favorite LYS is closing its doors at the end of this month...  Sad  Did anyone else in the Columbus area get the postcard?  Wolfe Fiber Arts has such a great selection of yarn and the people are always so helpful, this breaks my heart.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Ruffles on: January 10, 2005 08:15:30 AM
A friend and I decided to do a scarf swap this year.  I chose the "Ruffles" pattern from the Scarf Style book.  It was a fairly easy knit, just a bit tedious.  The yarn was a Jo Sharp DK in Lichen.  If I knit it again I think I will pick a softer yarn, but in all it turned out great and my friend loved it.

Here I am modeling it in a very preggy state!!

8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Looking for Soft Plain White Baby Bibs on: August 19, 2004 01:21:00 PM
I recently fell back in love with embroidery and have a baby on the way so naturally I want to embroider all things cute and cuddley.  I want to embroider a series of bibs for the little tyke and am interested in finding soft plain white bibs to create my masterpieces on.  I have searched the various craft stores JoAnn's, Michaels, etc and all I can find are scratchy bibs that usually have some sort of border etc.  Can anyone recommend a place to purchase plain white bibs, preferably a soft terry of some sort.
