3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knitted purse: lining on: May 04, 2009 01:58:01 PM
so i am making a knitted purse.
i just picked a pattern i liked a lot, cables, nothing special, and knitted a long rectangle.
im going to fold it in half, sew the sides together with tapestry needles, and add a purse handle you can buy at michaels or something.
i want to have a lining on the inside, cloth, though. maybe add a pocket.
i cant think of any good way to add a lining though. im stuck.
i cant really sew it to the knitted square (or can i? how would one recommend that?) or fabric glue it...
any ideas?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / attempt at knitted white plastic chair cover, lots of pics! on: April 29, 2009 12:04:21 PM
i was completely inspired by yuvee!! her knitted chair cover was awesome!
my chair did not turn out as great.
i started half way into the patter she had because i did not feel like using that much yarn, its expensive!!
on the from section i ended up with too many stitches somehow and its a bit big.
but here is my redskins inspired version of yuvees chair!!!

it was easier than i imagined. i made it with some friends for a baby shower.
the top tier is made from onsies, second and bottom are diapers.
its just from lost of rubber bands, ribbon, and pins! 8 oz baby bottles in the middle, filled with candy.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / problems with circular needles on: April 20, 2009 10:48:54 PM
i am attemping to knit the chair cover for the oh so boring white plastic chairs we all have. haha. i was inspired by another crastster.
now, its my first time using such big yarn and big circle needles.
i started the pattern and was about 5 inches into when i tried to untangle it, does that make sense?
i realized that somehow it cant be untagled, like when i joined the stitches and went onmaybe somehow it got twisted.
does anyone know what im trying to explain.
and if yes:
is there any to fix this without taking all my stitches outall the way.

this hat was a complete pain in the butt.
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / mosaic turtle table on: April 18, 2009 09:38:05 PM
my mother is completely obsessed with turtles.
we found a cute old table.
for ages we were trying to decide what to do with it.
we always had an idea to to some type of tile mosaic art on it, so it would be cute for outside, etc.
orginally we thought we would buy pre tiny inch by inch type tiles.
then decide, why??
we bought discounted tiles from a hardwar store in the needed color and broke them with a hammer.
drew an outline of a turtle and tried to make the tiles fit!

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / the clarinet lamp on: April 18, 2009 09:06:26 PM
being a clarinet player, this has always been a want of mine.
maybe 10 years ago, i saw someone who had a lamy made out of an old clarinet. some of the side keys were turned into the on and off buttons.
i was just wondering if anyone had any direction to point me to for this type of a project.
