1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Blythe hat! on: November 18, 2006 12:20:14 PM
Yes, I am still trying to generate enough interest to start a "Crafting For Toys" board, so here is some topic-appropriate cuteness.  I did these in-between my JLA Blythe  Project.

Hee hee hee hee hee hee....
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My JLA Blythe Project on: November 15, 2006 02:48:43 PM
I have too many dolls and for whatever reason I decided they should be the Superfriends.

First was Teddy as the Flash, which I had posted here

I had hoped to finish them by Hallowe'en, but, well, ... um... I didn't.

So in addition to The Flash, I have Batman (with a very MySpace pose)

And Hawkman!

Maybe by the end of the year, I will have Wonder Woman and the Green Lantern done.  Then I can start on the Legion of Doom....
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cabled floppy beret on undersized head on: November 10, 2006 02:15:36 PM
I really, really wanted a floppy knit beret but I could not find anything to fit my giant head.  So I, of course, turned to the kind folks here at Craftster and followed Lechaton's suggestion.

I was not willing to model it but Julie, my 32" walker Horsman, agreed to, so...



I realize it looks sort of silly on her, she's a 2T approximately but on me it looks fantastic!
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My Blythe reads too many comic books! on: October 03, 2006 09:13:51 AM
It's never to early to start preparing for Hallowe'en, one of the sacred Craftster holidays.  

My dolls all need costumes, so I had to start now.  (Well, I should have started earlier but let's not talk about that now.)  

This one, she decided she wanted to be Barry Allen's Flash.  What a nerd!




The pattern, such as it is, is a combination of the Coats and Clark hat pattern "Gotcha Covered #2 Crochet" (in the preemie size) and the wings from vanillaxlight's pattern Pigs Now Fly.

The wings are actually even, really they are.  They were done pretty tightly so they can move like they have wires in them almost, very positionable.  I've just failed to adjust them in the second photo.  Really!  
5  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Crafts for Blythe, BJDs and other non-toy toys? on: July 14, 2006 11:34:30 PM
I know there are some of us who are obsessed with our dollies and build them wee houses and clothes but these crafts don't fit into the parent boards, exactly.  There's been two "We Love Our Blythes" swaps and some clothing made for them posted here and there.  After goggling at the gorgeous bikini Bolyen made for her 60 cm, the topic of a separate board came up and I liked it.  Dangnabit, I liked it a lot.

I would love to be able to see what people are doing for their dollies all at one go instead of running across them accidentally.  Please?
6  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / New Stitch "N Bitch Book - Advanced Patterns Sought! on: June 03, 2006 03:22:21 PM
7  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / New Stitch 'N Bitch Book - Advanced Patterns Needed! on: June 03, 2006 03:20:22 PM
This was posted to my Stitch 'N Bitch Yahoo Group and Debbie Stoller's assistant's email gave me permission to post it here so:

Dearest stitchers 'n bitchers:
 I'm gearing up to get cracking on my next Stitch 'n Bitch book. It's going to be an advanced knitting manual, and I'm looking for patterns that incorporate a bit of fancy-pants knitting such as cables, lace, color work (either intarsia or fair isle or, hell, both!), beading, etc. The book will  be covering these techniques in great detail, as well as much more.
 Patterns can range from clothing to accessories to household items to baby things and pet items. Even first-time designers are invited to contribute.  I'm looking for lively, fun projects, and I'm especially interested in sweaters and socks.
 So put on your thinking caps, cause submissions are due June 19, 2006!
 To submit, please send the following:
 1) If you have a completed project, please send a few good-quality photos of  the item, along with a detailed description of it.
 2) If you can't get a large project done in time to meet the deadline, don't worry. Just send me a very clear, detailed sketch of your project idea (include basic measurements, fit information, etc), along with a photo of a  rather large swatch (at least 10" x 10") made in the 
yarns and stitch patterns you plan to use.
 Photos of projects and swatches can be emailed to me at stitchnbitch@bust.com, or mailed to me here:
Debbie Stoller, BUST Magazine, 78 Fifth Ave, 5th floor, New York, NY 10011.
 IMPORTANT: Please be sure to include your full name, email addresses, daytime and evening phone numbers, and mailing address, along with your submissions. Include a SASE self-addressed stamped envelope) if you'd like me to mail your submission back to you after I've made my selections.
 It will take me at least 2-3 weeks to make my selections. If your project is  accepted, you will be provided with the yarn you need to produce a sample, which will be photographed for the book and kept by me (to take on tour, 'natch!). You will also be paid for your submission, your pattern will be credited to you in the book and will run alongside a brief bio, and of course, you will receive a free copy of the book once it is completed.
 If you have any questions about the process, feel free to email me. Thanks  in advance, everyone!
 (I apologize to any of you receiving this call for submissions more than  once; I'm just trying to get the word out to as many of you as possible.)

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Metal mesh fabric? on: May 22, 2006 04:38:01 PM
Does anyone know where I can purchase metal mesh by the yard?  Would I look for it in a fabric store?  Or at some other place, like a blacksmith?  I have no idea.

By metal mesh, I mean the drapey, metal fabric Whiting & Davis uses and like Jimmy Choo uses in his new cruisewear line of handbags. 

Whiting & Davis
(They do wholesale only).

Jimmy Choo-ness

Thanks in advance for any help!
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Fitted Mandarin Collar Cardigan Pattern? on: March 17, 2006 05:55:01 PM
If you couldn't guess from the title, I am looking for a pattern for a fitted cardigan with a mandarin or stand-up collar so I can make a bee-yoo-ti-full cardi like this lovely on sweater.com LOVELY SWEATER HERE

It doesn't have to be the same stitch.  What I liked was the fitted-ness, the ribbon-ness and the collar-ness.  It doesn't have to be a free pattern but ideally would be a pattern obtainable in the United States.

Any and all help appreciated!  I need to act fast before the weather starts heating up!   Roll Eyes
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Cutting Edge magazine? on: December 16, 2005 12:33:26 PM
