1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Metal cutting tool on: December 10, 2011 10:17:45 PM

So I am trying to find a tool that can cut out the middle of a metal dog food bowl. I came across this Black and Decker rotary tool and I am just wondering if this would be able to do that. It says it can cut but not what it can cut.

Thank you!!
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / WATCH OUT! It's gonna get you! on: September 07, 2009 05:11:06 PM
I just started sewing about 1 1/2 ago. This is my first messenger style bag. First project I am posting to the board. I loved this fabric! I drew out the tentacles and used them as a guide to cut out the shape and then hand drew the details.

It measures 11x15". Big enough to fit my laptop in but since it's made with cotton fabrics, won't be using it for that. I put muslin in between the layers of fabric. Just to make it a bit thicker and stronger.I made pockets with a tentacle coming out of one. Two big ones, three small ones to fit my drawing pens, crochet hooks and knitting needles. The inside has one pocket.

Used less than a half yard of each, even less for the hot pink and pink that I used for the tentacles. This was hard to make since I didn't use a pattern, so the seam ripper and I became good friends Smiley

So that's all, thanks for looking!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / I Like Eating Nooooodles because that's what I like to doooo! on: July 14, 2009 02:11:50 AM
Yesterday I took my daughter to Central Park to see DJ Lance and Brobee at Summerstage! WooHoo! Tons of Yo Gabba Gabba fun, loved that they played the song "Pick It Up!" It was awesome! DJ Lance was actually mixing on stage!!

Anywho, the night before I decided to make her a shirt to wear to the show. Well I didn't make the shirt, I just used a plain pink T I had laying around that she hadn't worn yet but I sewed on the felt!!!! It's MUNO doing what he likes to do best, eat noodles. The noodles is just a little bit of cream colored ribbon folded in half and sewed one end to the bowl and the other to the chopsticks so it sticks out in the middle so my little girl and feel the texture and gives a little 3D effect. I'm not the best at hand sewing but I love it!

She looked so cute with it and everyone was asking where I got her shirt!

So here the drawing for the pattern I made and the shirt!!! It was my first time, but I have ideas now about how I can make it easier for next time Smiley

Just realized I cut off one of Muno's bumps *gasp!* forgive me Muno!
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Would anyone happen to know...? on: April 27, 2009 02:31:47 AM
So I have the book 101 luxury one skein wonders. I was wondering if I could sell a finished item I made from one of the patterns.. I went to their website but there is no contact information. Most companies like Lion Brand, Bernat, Patons etc, let you sell your finished projects, but I don't know about books like these which is why I trying to contact them.

So can I sell what I make from a pattern book like one skein wonders? Sorry if this question was posted before, I did a search but didn't find it FAQ wasn't specific enough.

Thanks in advanced
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Little Black Dress on: March 17, 2009 08:09:54 PM
I made this little black dress for my daughter but she is too big for it. It's a 0-3 month size. I used almost an entire 7 oz skein of Simply Soft and an H hook. I haven't sewed on the buttons yet. Here is the pattern if anyone is interested Smiley

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / First Knitted Booties - Streakers! on: March 17, 2009 07:54:01 PM
My hubby has lovingly named these Streakers Smiley

They are my first knitted pair of booties for my daughter. I love the way they turned out. Made from a free Lion Brand patter. I used Wool-ease (first time using it) to make these. The pictures were taken after my daughter used them once and they began to fuzz up and pill Sad

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Rebel Baby Mohawk Hat (updatedw/ new pic) on: January 13, 2009 12:16:50 AM
I completed my version of the "faux mohawk hat" https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=281250.20 I used the picutres as a guide to make one to fit my two month old daughter and big enough to last through the winter into early spring. I rounded out the earflaps and lined the edge in a contrast color. I also have a full mohawk that I decided not to felt.

I used the I hook to make the hat and used an H hook to pull the yarn through the stitches for the hair.

I am thinking to add something to the sides. Looks like something is missing. My DH suggested broken hearts since she is a little heart breaker lol. I was thinking to embroider lightning bolts on the flaps. hmm.. i think i decided I will Cheesy

Now.. with lightning bolts!
I just used some extra scrap yarn I had. It's complete now and I am totally satisfied. Cheesy

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / help.. i'm a beginner with a problem on: November 28, 2008 02:00:27 AM
I'm going crazy.. so i am trying to teach myself to knit. My two beginning and two ending stitches ALWAYS end up begin sooo loose. I don't know why, and I don't know if maybe that is normal. It's driving me crazy not knowing.

I have tried using different yarns and different sized needles but I still end up with the same problem. Anyone know what I am doing wrong???
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Baby Booties and Maryjanes on: September 18, 2008 02:58:03 PM
Both of these are from a Annies Attic book.

I thought it would be cute to do a pair of Maryjanes in classic black. They are a bit hard to see.

I'm particularly proud of this pair. These are made in three pieces the sole, vamp, and cuff. I was terrified to make these because they were done in pieces but I finally tried to make them. It came out pretty good.

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My first starghan on: September 16, 2008 07:36:10 PM
Special thanks to MandaLynn for the help

I was really slow making this I used baby yarn because I loved the speckled yarn. Didn't realize that I should have used a bigger hook so its a bit tight. If it's not stretched out it looks like a starfish lol

It's preemie sized baby blanket (22 rows I think). I'm donating this one to the hospital when I give birth and making another for my little girl. So here it is..
