1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Costume for the school Royal Tournament on: May 21, 2008 04:54:04 AM
Made from sari silk and lots of shirring!

Sorry about the face - we are a bit funny about pictures of the kids online.

ETA I am an idiot and posted this in the wrong place!  Could it be moved, pretty please?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Two threads at once? on: March 27, 2008 02:04:42 PM
Sorry if this is answered elsewhere - I looked and couldn't find it.

A book I looked at talked about knitting with 2 threads at once, but the illustration showed 2 threads coming from 1 ball, which makes no sense to me!  Do you use 2 balls at once?
3  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Is it just in the UK? on: March 24, 2008 12:16:58 PM
Here many schools do not allow nuts or peanuts (or their derivtives) in packed lunches because so many kids these days apparently have allegies.  I wondered if this was the case in other countries.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / peasant top problem on: March 09, 2008 03:37:58 PM
I have been trying to make a peasant dress from a pillowcase.  I followed the vegbee tute here http://indietutes.blogspot.com/2007/07/peasant-blouse.html for the armholes and sleeves...but for some mad reason that I can't work out the sleeves just don't fit the armhole shapes.  So I thought, no worries, I'll have it sleeveless...

So my question is:  how should I join the shoulders in order to still have the elasticated neckline?
5  COOKING / Dessert / Tardis cake on: March 06, 2008 01:08:30 PM
My daughter is Doctor Who mad, so we had to make a cake for her birthday that was relevant.  I hoped that David Tennant might come and model for an icing portrait, but alas! twas not to be.

So we did this one... 
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / 6 panel satin skirt for my dancer on: February 26, 2008 03:56:37 AM
It was her dance school presentation night on Saturday so I made her an outfit!  The fabric was 99p in a charity shop and I drafted the pattern myself.  I found some matching ribbon and trimmed an old T shirt.

The turquoise socks were her addition to the outfit!

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How to make the skirt of my dreams? on: February 10, 2008 02:31:16 PM
I was lucky enough to get about 4yards of gorgeous sari fabric for 99p yesterday (about 50cents) and I have an image in my mind of a skirt I'd like to use it for.

It would be ankle length, using the width of the fabric with no hem at the bottom as there is a finished edge there.  It will be very full, but the fullness is at the bottom of the skirt, it isn't bulky at the top.The effect is of it flaring out, but with folds and folds of fabric swooshing round my ankles.

The fully skirt patterns I have seen are a little too conventional and not swooshy enough.  I'm sure I could do it without a pattern, skirts are easy enough, right?
8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Twirly skirt from teletubby sheet on: February 01, 2008 09:53:08 AM
And she only takes it off to sleep (and only then because I force her to!)

9  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / How much would you expect to be paid for your work? on: January 31, 2008 03:03:07 AM
If a retail outlet wanted to sell your items - buy them, mark the price up and sell them on - would you give them a discount on your normal price in return for a minimum order?  How much discount and what quantity of order?
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / pattern sizing advice please on: January 24, 2008 01:45:27 PM
I am very confused about sizing!  The top I plan to make says UK 16, European 42, Bust 38".

Now I wear size 16 from shops, but when I measured my bust it is 44"  Embarrassed  So do I need to try and enlarge the pattern pieces?  If so, how?
