11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Outkast Tiny T-shirt Skirts on: April 12, 2008 10:34:29 AM
I bought some cheapo t-shirts and made them into skirts! I'm still learning how to sew and this was a good project-I learned how to make buttonholes to wind the drawstring/elastic through. Very fun. These are great for lounging around the house, especially now that the weather is turning super hot again. Can you guess what I was listening to on the radio when I finished? Enjoy!

Sorry for the distortion-tried photobucket's new image editing-not that great. Ah well.

12  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Robbie Roll-and-go Blanket (2 pics) on: April 04, 2008 08:03:25 AM
I sewed a blanket! I am still learning to sew and I found a project where I bought some fleece, cut it, pinned it (pin, pin, pin, pin, pin eternally) and sewed the edges. It's really basic but it helped me practice my straight edge a lot. And I like it. It's bright green and matches the Monrose Slumber Sack I made before. It's named Robbie because I was listening to Robbie Williams while making it. Enjoy! I know I will!

13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / monrose slumber sack (3 pics) on: February 08, 2008 04:13:54 PM
Hi! This is my second sewing project. I finished it while listening to DNR radio, hence the name. It's a fleece sack with drawstrings and can hold things like magazines and movies and such. I appliqued a little bird that came from the drawstring fabric. It was my first time with applique so its nowhere near perfect but it's good enough for me for a first time project, especially with the little details like the tail feathers and the feet. I may fix it later when I feel more proficient. Sorry for the small photos-photbucket was acting up. Enjoy!

14  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / photos come out sideways on: February 08, 2008 12:32:55 PM
Hi I am trying to post three pics into a post. I have never had a problem on craftster before. The pictures are right side up, when I upload them and look at them on photobucket they are right side up. When I post them on craftster two of them come out rotated sideways!!!??? I resized them smaller thinking that might be the problem, but no they are still coming out sideways. Any suggestions? Thanks!
15  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / first sewing project-patchwork pillow! (3 pics) on: February 03, 2008 10:44:33 AM
Hello. After years of making the new year's resolution 'learn to sew' I finally went out and bought a sewing machine in December. And after three miserable looking pincushions I made a pillow that I am happy with! The scraps are really random-from the leftover bins at craft stores, so there's christmas and valentine's day in there, but it's functional and I like it. Let me know what you think!

16  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / sizing socks on: January 30, 2008 03:19:40 PM
Hi, I am knitting my first sock. I am using a beginner pattern from a book and made a gauge swatch to work with my yarn, needles and my own foot. I knit the swatch in st st. Now I have knitted about a dozen rows of the actual sock and it looks bigger! The sock is in a k, p ribbing pattern. Would that make that much of a difference? Or has my knitting changed since I made the swatch? How can I tell if it's going to be too big or just right at this point in the sock process?
17  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / need help deciding between two books on: January 02, 2008 01:18:42 PM
Hey guys, I just finished knitting all the projects in my learning how to knit book and now I want to try...dun dun dun...socks! I found two books that have good reviews but I was wondering if anyone has any advice for one or the other for someone who has never knit socks before. Thanks!

18  UNITED STATES / South Carolina / sewing circles in Columbia? on: December 27, 2007 12:30:16 PM
Does anyone know if there are any 'sewing circles' in Columbia? I just got my first sewing machine and can't afford lessons but would love to join a group to meet people and get advice. Thanks!
19  COOKING / Dessert / christmas cookies! on: December 17, 2007 08:57:26 AM
Hey! I made sugar cookies from the refrigerated slice and bake pack but I made Isa Chandra Moskowitz's (Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World) vegan buttercream cupcake frosting on top w/food dye. Turned out great! Think about it-cookies and cupcakes all in one-num. I was going to take a picture but they got eaten up so quick that I only have 6 left-which is great. So here's what's left.  Smiley

and now there's five. yum!

Hi. After too many times of spilling water in my living room I am thinking about knitting a cupholder that I can strap onto my couch armrest. I was wondering if anyone knew of a pattern? Thanks!
