1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help me rid the world of MOM JEANS on: July 23, 2009 02:29:58 PM
I had been looking for denim capris that fit OK and FINALLY found a pair that are good in the legs. However, total mom jeans that come up to past my belly button. Any idea on what I can do or a tutorial to fix this??


2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: xmas on: November 11, 2008 09:34:12 AM
Yeh, the "easter" sweater was a better size for an ornament. I like the size of the green sweater but I just think it's too big to use as an ornament on the tree (could you imagine a full sized book hanging on the tree?! haha)
So the needles I have may be fine with thinner yarn, I think I'm going to get thinner yarn & smaller needles and give both a shot to see what I like best..or to do both and get a little variation.

I was thinking of making little "hangers" for them instead of using regular tree hooks.

And thank you, my cat is very conceited so she loves hearing compliments  Grin
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / xmas on: November 11, 2008 08:49:16 AM
I have decided to give some handmade gifts this year (with the exception of my sister and boyfriend's nephew). I will probably bake something for everyone, and was also thinking of knitting an ornament or something small for everyone. I tried knitting a mini sweater ornament

This was my first attempt (the yarn is not working for me though, looks more like Easter than Christmas) just to practice and see if I thought this is a doable goal.
I knitted the wrong side on the sleeve, but when I did the 2nd sleeve I was able to get it right. I forgot to take a picture of it completed though

Then my 2nd attempt in a more appropriate yarn for a christmas sweater ornament. HOWEVER I originally bought this yarn for a scarf so it built up too much, and I need to get a thinner yarn, and also smaller DPNs (but again, this was a 2nd practice attempt. I was working with what I had at the moment)
This turned out well, I think. However, too big. It's probably a good size for a small teddy bear or something. And I feel accomplished Smiley

(picture taken on a normal sized paperback book to show size)

AND OF COURSE My kitty wanted to try on the sweater ;-)
I was lucky enuogh to catch her mid yawn. Ever since I put the sweater on her, she was yawning constantly. She must have thought it was preettyyy cozy

5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Some more embellished onesies on: October 05, 2008 02:08:06 PM
I had a brain freeze when trying to decide on a gift for a friend's baby shower.
I had the thought of the tuxedo t-shirt turned onesie via a stencil and some paint.
Instead, I took old ties and did my first attempt at applique.

one of the ties (my favorite)

Next tie:

I found out she was decorating the room with sailboats and a nautical theme, so I decided to draw up an anchor stencil. I tried to applique this one, but I had a lot of trouble around the curves and all. So I trashed that onesie, and did another just topstitched..I guess for a more "vintage" feel

They were a hit at the shower, her whole family (who I had never met before yesterday) is already asking for me to sell them, and mommy to be is wanting to try some as well

6  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Need costume idea for yellow skirt... on: September 08, 2008 08:10:12 AM
I'm personally LOVING the child beauty queen thing..and may think about doing that myself. hmmm

I have red hair, and have been trying to think of a costume to incorporate it (which is hard..) but one I had been thinking of for a while was Jessica Rabbit.. but you'd ahve to dye and alter the skirt for that to work
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: at 1 am last night, it was the best dress ever made... on: September 05, 2008 07:26:27 AM
I always get nervous sewing late, I feel like my landlord will get complaints! But once I get in my groove, I can't stop and keep myself  up until I'm done.

I like the dress a lot, very versatile.
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to crochet a scrabble board?????? Ideas anyone???? on: August 11, 2008 06:38:17 AM
This weekend, I decided I wanted a scrabble blanket. Right now I am torn between quilting or knitting (I don't crochet)

But if I knit, I think I will do each square seperately and stitch them together. Also, Seeing suggestions for color coding...that is how I planned on doing mine. Beige for the regular squares, pink, blue, dark blue, red for the special tiles....

Good luck! Can't wait to see the finished project

in that case, I think the sunflower would be a really nice idea. Maybe some sort of background though, to spice it up a bit?

something simple like this


or an engagement party, that would be my choice!

this site was interesting though, http://weddings.about.com/od/gettingstarted/a/announceengage.htm
suggesting against formal mailed announcements, as it will make you consider your invitation list very early!!
