1  Another pair of love birds in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by missjulie on: September 24, 2010 11:42:46 AM
I bought the Sublime Stitching design pad after seeing someone else do the lovebirds design, so it had to be the first thing I made from it! Cheesy I can't remember who had posted theirs, it was a while ago! If I find your name, major props!




(my first time doing satin stitch. am in love!)


(lols. am I messy?)

2  DIY Custom Fit Corset Pattern & Link to Tutorial - UPDATED: Part 2 Added! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by missjulie on: October 09, 2009 07:33:40 AM
I wanted to make my own corset and I found Roethke's tute here that was fantastic! I also found a booklet online about custom fitting a corset to your body shape. Since I have a long torso... this was useful. Really useful! So I drafted my own custom pattern using both of these things and thought I'd share how I did it. (UPDATE: Here is the finished corset!)

Like I said, I used two other sources to make my own mash-up tutorial, and I reference them repeatedly, so don't think I made this up all by my lonesome. Wink Roethke did a fantastic job on her tutorial so mad props to her and her awesome corsets! And Cathy Hay is a mastermind at fitting corsets, so mad props to her as well for sharing her booklet on corsetry. Links to both of these can be found in the tutorial, which is on my blog. I could copy and paste it here but - OMG that would take forever! And it took a long time to write the thing one time around.

Ok, here's a pic of what the FINISHED pattern will look like for your custom fit corset.

And here's a link to the tutorial.

I had to take the photos myself... so forgive the akwardness of not getting a full shot.

Cho Chang from the Harry Potter series... er, or a Ravenclaw student. Whichever.... My cloak was very hard to walk in. And my wand is a knitting needle. Only took me two months to make the cloak! Two days to start it and a month and 3/4 to leave it lying around until Halloween crunch time ^^

Am I late???

In case you can't tell I'm Cho Chang from Harry Potter (in Ravenclaw House)... exept I'm Greek, but whatever (:

My wand was a knitting needle! I made the cloak and tie myself tho, so hurray for me! The rest was just a white shirt and pants.

6  Various scarves, hats etc... Hurray! in Knitting: Completed Projects by missjulie on: January 04, 2005 05:43:06 PM
First, here is a mohair scarf I made for my grandma for x-mas (it made her cry! mwuaahahaha!). I used Reynolds Fusion in Rainbow, which was very fun to play with. I also made a little headband for myself out of what was left.
I used the pattern in Last Minute Knitted Gifts, but used a diff. yarn. Much fun, and the eyelets came out so pretty!

This is me modeling said scarf

full length shot, its about 4-5 feet long

Up close shot so you can see the eyelet detail.

Small headband version for myself...


Next I have the neckwarmer from SnB Nation. I made it while watching 'Baby Boom' with Diane Keeton... anyways, it was quick to make and a lot of fun. Took me a while to get it started, but it finished wonderfully. The flowers were also a little hard to get used to. I should be starting the earwarmer version soon... I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease in various colors.

Yet another Kitty Hat
Used Lion Brand Wool Ease in black. This was my first hat and my first attempt at circs. It came out really good for my first try! I'm currently working on a purple one for spring in Cascade 220. Will post when done (:



Ipod Cozy, just made a big strip and sewed it together. Add a button hole and a button... wasn't too complex, and it works for what it is. Again, Lion Brand Wool Ease (I have a ton of it laying around!)

I even made a pocket on the back for my headphones. They fit snuggly, and they don't fall out.



And finally I made a green chenille scarf that started out as the butterfly scarf from SnB Nation, but the butterfly was horribly gaudy, so I left it off and just had this nice soft and extremly warm scarf. I used Lion Brand Chenille. If you were going to follow the pattern to the Tee, I would reccomend using what they have listed, Cotton Chenille, as it seems a little lighter. But still, Lion Brand is readily available and still very nice to work with (:

Modeling scarf

Full shot... about 4 feet long, maybe more...

Close up for detail

That's all for now!
Working on another kitty hat using Cascade 220, as well as a different hat (knit flat and seamed) out of Lion Brand Homespun, and a scarf for my man using Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick.

Here's the yarns I used and where you can find them if not at your LYS:

7  Re: Variation on the SNB wristbands - elephants! in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by missjulie on: December 04, 2004 07:59:16 AM
I started making wristbands for this game I play online, (www.gothador.com). The game uses 16-bit graphics for the character icons, so I transfered it to a knitting pattern and viola! Instant fun!

Here's a few that I did.

Vampire (rawr!)

And a Cow Hoof for the games creator (goes by the name of hoofmaster)

The other one's are funky too, but those two came out the best.

Also workong on some old nintendo graphics for x-mas gift wristbands. (:

(Oh... I'm new here too bytheby)
