1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Last night at Wal-mart on: February 11, 2015 06:40:09 AM
Last night I went to Wal-Mart. They had just gotten in fabric within the last 6 months, but there is never anyone staffed there. I went and found a stock man, and told him that I needed to get some fabric cut. He said okay, and that he would get me someone. About 10 minutes later, the same stock man came around again. He asked if someone came to help yet. I said no, and he went to find someone again. A couple minutes later he came back and said that he couldn't find anyone, and that he would just do it himself. I asked if he knew how to cut fabric, and he got this deer in the headlights look, and asked if I did. I said yes, just keep it straight. Then he attempted to measure, and he was stretching the fabric (which was knit), so I showed him the proper way to measure it. Then I said just take the scissors up the the groove to cut it. He put his hands up in there, and said you do it, so I ended up cutting my own fabric.  Roll Eyes The the poor guy couldn't figure out how to print the ticket for it. He ended up printing out a sticker for each yard, rather than having them all on the same one. He was a really nice guy, and I actually kind of felt bad for him. I think in total from the first time I asked him for help, until he was done printing the stickers, it took over 20 minutes, for 2 yards of fabric, from the same bolt.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Family Moments on: December 30, 2013 08:34:18 PM
I made this for my parents. I woodburned the family moments and the months on the actual plaque. For the discs, I ended up using a sharpie. It seems our family is always growing, and with my parents living halfway across the country, this made sense, so that they could add to it if necessary. My husband drilled the holes for the discs, and because of the size, I ended up having to make the hooks to fit it. I hope you enjoy!
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Where to get reflective material? on: July 03, 2013 11:52:03 AM
Hi! I just recently adopted a puppy. I made her a new leash, but I am wondering if there is somewhere that I could get reflective material to put on it?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby blanket on: February 08, 2009 08:42:12 AM
I'm not sure if this the right place or not, but I am going to post it anyhow. I made this on my USM for my nephew.

And a close up of the cabling I used to try to stop the curl:

As you can tell, it did not work all that great, but I guess it could be worse. Let me know what you think.
5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Wonkey Monkey on: February 08, 2009 08:35:02 AM
I made this for my nieces' birthday. Her party is today. I'm not very good at embroidery, but she's 3, and I don't think that she will care.

This is the monkey by itself:

This is my daughter with the monkey (she loves having her pic took):

The pattern came from a tear sheet at either Wal-Mart or AC Moore.

This is a blanket that I made for my daughter about a year ago. It is a combination of granny squares and basket weave squares. Thanks for looking!

First, a close up of squares:
