61  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Does anyone know how to make these alternative bouquets? on: November 02, 2008 06:29:17 AM
Looking around on that website, it looks like they made theirs out of parchment paper.  I would try it by taking strips of fabric (something thin, like linen) and starching them so they curve like you want them to.  Then add a big jeweled flower in the center. 

Also you could try contacting that company you saw the original ones from and ask what they make those bouquets from (try to sound like you want to buy them as a bouquet but are worried about the texture or stiffness of the bits).  I would suggest asking how stiff the swirly stuff is, that should give you an idea of what to make it from.  Hope this helps.

I love this thread, first off.  I just got engaged last weekend and spent most of the week reading/skimming through this entire post.  We are planning on getting married next year in September sometime and the wedding will be on the beach.  This is what I think I may craft:

-Save the date (cards?)
-Guest favors
-Bridesmaids gifts (possibly knit wraps for them)
-Card box
-Ring bearers "pillow" (I'm thinking a seashell filled with sand and set with wax)
-Table numbers
EDIT: - also I'll be barefoot, so I want to make an anklet/toe connector from beads

Also after reading these posts, I'm tempted to make my own invitations/thank you cards, but I'm a little intimidated about buying and using a gocco.  I haven't picked out what colors I want yet, so I haven't thought about starting anything yet either.

This bag is gorgeous.  The girlfriend will love it.  I wish my mother-in-law would make me an awesome purse like this.

Holy cow!  From the smaller pictures, I thought it was a real cactus.  This is amazing.
70  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: recyled yarn KAL? on: March 06, 2008 06:30:23 PM
Wow, I just found this thread and I think it's awesome.  I've been looking at websites about recycling yarn, but didn't actually try it until yesterday.  I was hoping to find this awesomely hideous sweater, but really, most of the sweaters were either decent or the yarn was yucky.  I ended up buying and frogging this awesome large brown sweater that has flecks of tan in it.  Once it was frogged and wound into balls, I realized just how much yarn it was.  Before this, I never had more than 2 skeins of the same yarn.  It's amazing how much there is of this. 

I am going to try and limit myself on how many sweaters to buy for frogging, since I don't knit all that much, but it's very addicting.
