3  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / U.K. AND IRELAND / Re: A-level results....and crafting in Brighton on: September 27, 2008 02:20:15 PM
Hiya - I think uni term starts on Monday, so you've probably arrived by now - welcome to Brighton ('n' Hove) - you are going to LOVE it!
I love going to Fabricland and C&H Fabrics on Western Road for haberdashery and fabrics stuff - not far from the main shopping mall in the city centre, and for art materials it has to be Clarkes Stationers, which is on Bond Street in the North Laine, just off North Street.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Captain Jack Sparrow doll on: September 27, 2008 02:06:55 PM

It was my pirate-obsessed sister's 30th birthday, so I thought I'd better whip up (that's 'whip' with the emphasis on the 'h', Family Guy fans) something special. So here he is - a Captain Jack Sparrow doll, based on Jean Greenhowe's 'Pirate' doll pattern, from her 'Storybook Dolls' booklet: http://www.jeangreenhowe.com/storybook.html

I ran out of time to knit a bandana, waistcoat and sash, so they're made of remnants from my fabric stash. His hair was done by French knitting (on a Clover Wonder Knitter), and then beads were sewn in. Yarrrr!!!!!!!

Fab! How d'you get the sponge so intensely coloured all through?

Brilliant! I love that you were (kind of) able to make your peace with pink. Wink

Really cute - and dead easy to girly-up with some trims or applique.

That's lovely - what a lot of careful work you've put in!

You're right - sometimes a bit of fine-tuning is all that's needed. I love the turquoise sweater - great colour, my fave - I would never think you could get it to look that could from a 'batwing' start!
