1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: Embroidered Boots Question on: September 05, 2012 01:19:30 PM
Oooooh, pretty! In the case of your example boots, it looks like the fabric was machine embroidered prior to construction of the boots. To do this to a finished pair, I would pick a pair of boots that have a side zip so you can open the shaft as much as possible, and a woven fabric like twill, canvas, linen, whatever would be easier to embroider than some kind of plastic. Other than that, practice your satin stitch, or choose a design that's within your skill level (I didn't look at your past projects; for all I know, you're a master embroiderer!).

If I were to do this, I'd lightly mark my design with a pencil. I wouldn't trust disappearing ink on boots I couldn't throw in the washing machine.

Good luck, and can't wait to see how it goes!

I'm at around a moderate skill level. I've never sewn on anything round before, so I'm not sure how to keep it round.

i should imagine that the material was embroidered prior to constructing the boots. when the material layed flat.....

to recreate this on a pair of boots already constructed it may be worth the effort of de-constructing the part to be embroidered and then putting the boots back together afterwards. i think to try and sew wither by hand or machine onto a pair of boots moulded/shaped to stay circular your going to have a hell of a job getting the stitches to stay flat and even.....

http://www.instructables.com/id/Upcycled-Sweater-Boots/ - I was thinking about making these shoes and then embroidering this symbol (http://www.feanor.net/z0r/triforceCREST.jpg) on it.

To both,
Thanks for the help.

5  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Ideas for Recipes in Jars? on: November 19, 2008 12:38:13 PM
I was actually considering making dry mixes for homemade brownies in bags or jars. My recipe would just need to add a couple eggs and a stick of melted butter and mix =)

i think if you added the vanilla to the rest of the dry mix, and let it dry into it, the vanilla would stay despite the alcohol evaporating, getting rid of the need for the baker to add vanilla to the mix too =D

if you had the bottom of cocoa/flour mix, then a layer of chocolate chunks, then a layer of walnuts, it'd look pretty nice too i'd bet =D

Or you could just add vanilla sugar to it. It is very simple to make.

Vanilla Sugar

1 vanilla bean
2 cups of sugar

slice down side of vanilla bean with back of knife and scrape seeds into airtight container with the sugar. Bury bean in sugar and seal tightly with lid. Let sit for 1 to 2 weeks.

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Just began knitting today and have a question. on: November 10, 2008 04:29:12 PM
I've been knitting for the last four hours and this is all I've got so far.

Am I an extremely slow knitter or does it normally take forever to make something?

EDIT: Thanks for all the help. I think it was because I was trying to hold the yarn in a way that didn't work for me. It was extremely awkward and I had to adjust every time I finished a row. I've sped up and I think I'll actually be able to finish by Thursday now.

Here is my progress after another four hours.

P.S. I don't have any real knitting needles, so I have been using barbeque skewers.
