1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Vertical stripes in intarsia on: September 11, 2005 08:02:34 PM
hello...i'm trying to make the new knitty "hipster"  but i've completely reinvented it so that : 1.  i don't have to buy 2 circular #9 needles (dont have the money) and 2.  can use straight needles instead.  so here's my dilemma:  i want the strips to go all the way around the bag meaning they go down the back and up on the front of the bag. make sense?  and i can't figure out in their patter where the chart (pattern) for the star is. did the leave it out or am i having a blonde moment??  so when i start the project i will have to also start my stripes so that they go through like i want them to.  do i just start the new color and tie the ends or is there some other mehtod that i just cant think of??  please help...  Sad

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / wall adhesives on: March 14, 2005 09:38:46 PM
ok i was googling something but i dont remember what and i ended up at the target website and i saw these really cool cirlces that are wall adhesives and you can remove them and stick 'em some place else when you get bored they look like this:


and being the DIYer that i am i thouhgt... couldn't you just come up with your own image and print it @ home.  hense my dilemma: is there such a thing wall adhesive paper you can purchase somewhere???  

then i got distracted and did a search for blik  (the people who make the target adhesives)  and they have some really cool stuff!!!  so if anybody out there has done this wall adhesive stuff @ home i'd love to know how you did it.

this is another of the blik images for wall adhesives:

anyway...i hope someone has some ideas or has done this before...

I'm so excited I feel like I'm gonna burts!!!! 
This is my very first sewn project and I am absolutely stoked on how it turned out!!
 I got the fabric @ Joann's for 2.59 p/yard!!!  amazing....I love Joann's. 
There is no hem on the bottom, the fabric is is a strtchy cotton/jersey tyope of thing so the edges just rolled up and I thought it looked kindda cool ....ok really I was just too lazy, HAHA!  so tell me what you think.....


and the side view...

it took me 3.5 hours.  Really!!!
