1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sheep to Shawl challenge? on: May 29, 2011 11:42:54 AM
Oh my goodness! I am on a Ravelry Tour De Fleece challenge team (Team Rookie) and my challenge for myself is to use 1 lb of natural roving (Sheep Shed Studio) that I have and spin it up in 4 oz skeins of 4 different weights from fingering to bulky--

Then I am planning on dying it. I wonder if I can use 4 different weights to create something wearable? Hum, maybe have to do a "collection" hat, scarf, mitts?  HUm...I love the sound of this challenge.

I think I might be a bit over confident in my current ability but hey, we don't grow if we don't stretch for lofty goals!

I have only been spinning for 2 months --and only 1 month on my Merlin Tree Hitchhiker spinning wheel.

Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow! I love it!

Let me say right up front I'm not asking for a tutorial on how you did this.   BUT.... I would really like to know where to find out how to do this technique.

Any suggestions??

Way to go with the laptop bag. it is lovely. I like the idea of adding the side pieces. If you make it a bit more than the 1/2 in on each side it would give room to slide some papers or a magazine in side along with the computer. I know that I usually end up needing to carry a bit more when I use my laptop bag.

Love your fabric choices too. Way to go. Please share photos when you are all finished!

Way to go. Love the butterfly lining. I'm going crazy with sewing bags and purses too. Thanks for sharing yours! I'll be at my ten posts soon and then watch out! I'll be sharing my bags too. Smiley

I don't know if this has been asked already (cause there's 113 pages) but there is one part of this tutorial that I don't understand. How do you turn everything right side in through that little hole you leave? My brain just won't wrap around that concept. I don't see how that would work. Am I just stupid??

Kalyani-- you really do turn it all through the open corner in the lining. When it is all sewed together and ready to be turned you slowly and carefully pull through the corner, then you close up the corner and push the lining down inside the bag. It is sort of hard to visualize until you have the bag in front of you. I promise it will work if you have put the bag together the way Jordy has described. I've made about 10 of them so far and they all have worked. Smiley!

Wow! You got the tute up so quickly! Thanks for posting all the photos too! It really does make it so much easier to understand. I'm still working my way up to using zippers in my bags. I've been really stuck on using velcro and magnetic snaps.

You are giving me a lot of courage to try it out! Thanks!

I'm so into these bags. I like the simpler styling and the stripe going all the way around is so cool! Thanks for sharing.  Cheesy

HUm.... Anyone else think that this change on April 1st is a bit suspect? April Fool's day and all??

I do love Macrame and have done it since the 70's on a board on the floor of my parent's home on just the same shade of orange shag carpet.

I have another question though...if this is really for real....will we still have access to all the coolio stuff that has taken years to grow in the Craftser Universe??
