1  UNITED STATES / Utah / Re: Fabulous New Yarn Store on: September 21, 2009 04:39:38 PM
I just barely found this local section, so I obviously haven't spent too much time here.  But imagine my delight when I clicked on this, and discovered that you just talked about my sister's yarn shop! 

My sister is one of the owners of Unwind.  She had no previous knitting or crocheting experience when she opened the store, but she has since made up for it! 

She will be thrilled to hear that you liked the shop so much.  She really wanted it to be the type of place where you'd not only want to go to buy your yarn, but you might want to stay and hang out a while, too. Smiley

Wow, that is amazing!  I love that you did the color scheme, and also the polka dots.  It is so neat and organized, it should be a breeze to just start any project and know exactly where everything you need is located!

I have a great space like that, but I have yet to get it to where there is a place for everything, and everything in its place!  I aspire to have a space like yours!

I think that is adorable! 

Did you use anything behind to reinforce the fabric for the weight of the buttons?  I'd love to do something like this (matching, of course!) for my daughters, and I'm already thinking of a candycane or holly buttons for Christmas, various orange buttons in a pumpkin shape for Halloween, etc.

What a sweetie Harmony is! Your gifts look great! Just out of curiosity, what is strapped on her little ankle? It almost looks like a box of dental floss. LOL

I could be wrong, but I think it is a little alarm system for baby.  If anyone tries to take her out of either the maternity ward or the hospital (depending on the hospital) the alarm will go off and alert the staff.

OP, that baby is adorable, and very lucky to have such a cute blankie!  I LOVE minky, it is SO soft!

I love that thing!  I may have to use the idea to craft a similar doll for a friend who really loves Sam Elliot, if for no other reason than to irk her husband, lol!
6  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Little Red...TWO YEARS in the making! on: November 05, 2008 08:07:33 PM
This is my daughter's costume, which I was thrilled with!  I was trying to decide between her being a chicken or Little Red Riding Hood, and I was so glad I went with Little Red when all was said and done.

I found the fabric for the dress, and that is what finally swayed me away from the chicken.  I used a pattern to sew that (no idea which one), and then figured out the pinafore and apron without one.  I started to use a tute for the cape, but I realized fairly quickly that I wanted a hood that she could actually wear, instead of one just for decoration.  So I grabbed a hoodie off the coat rack, looked at the hood, improvised, and got it right on the first try!

Oh, and the two years in the making part?  Well, I thought her little pigtails made the outfit, and we have been working for 25 months to get BARELY enough to pull up into two TINY pigtails, lol!

This is really the first time I've sewn without a pattern, and I was so inspired with the results!  I can't wait to start more projects now!

Those are great!  I wonder if my son would be crafty enough to make some of these for a school project?  My husband wanted to make them using real foods, and then just spray them with varnish.

i'm in the uk! you could cut autumn leaf shapes out of cheap sheets of felt - that'd be pretty cost effective and you could sandwich sheets together to cut out lots at once. if you wanted you could use permanant marker to draw on the vein details.

I really like this idea!  You could also just line it with a cute autumnal-looking cloth napkin or dishcloth.

That is very cute!  I definitely have enough hands around here that we could make a great centerpiece like that for our Thanksgiving feast as well.

These are very cute!  We are going to the in-laws for Thanksgiving this year, and I'd love to let each of the kids make one to give to their grandparents for the table.
