11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re:HANDBAG SWAP (sign up closed ; mail your craft by: 3/31/04) on: April 05, 2004 08:31:13 PM
I still have not gotten my bag yet (which I take as my karma bad for mailing my bag out late... hehe)

but here is a pic I took of the bag that I sent out to jinxy_a_26


I'm glad you love the bag jinxy_a_26!  Grin
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re:SPRING KNITTY IS ALIVE!!! on: April 02, 2004 02:49:15 PM
I thought several of the patterns cute, but most of the tops seem a bit on the short side... So am I the only knitter on earth that does not like wearing cropped tops? lol

I feel like I just totally missed the boat on something.... hehe

I didn't find anything really exciting overall, but I am looking forward to their next issue... The "sexy" one.....

I think stringing the tabs from soda cans would be neat....
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re:gorgeous sweater from #27 filati issue on: March 31, 2004 12:45:07 PM
Personally - Even if I could afford it, I never feel totally satisfied if I don't check out all my options first... Who knows, maybe you could find a yarn you would like more, for less money?

If you can't find any other yarn you'd be satisfied with using, you can afford it, it's the yarn for you, I'd say go for what the pattern calls for... More often than not I find myself NOT being able to splurge $100 to make a sweater but I still feel that with the right pattern & quality yarn, where else can you get some gorgeous custom made sweater for $100?

Many designer boutiques sell sweaters that are machine made in  a sweatshop for $100+ dollars... So in my little brain, $100 would seem resonable for a fantastic handmade sweater...

Oh oh and the sweater is beautiful! I might have to get myself that pattern... yum!
I mailed mine out yesterday.... I hope that everyone likes them...  Shocked

I've gotten 5 so far and I will also post pics when I get them all....
16  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re:Anyone up for a T-Shirt Swap? (sign up: CLOSED ; mail 4/2 & 4/23 on: March 28, 2004 10:44:20 AM
Sign ups are now closed for round 1 of the T-Shirt swap... All the info has been sent out to each participant... As mentioned in my PM, if at all possible, please PM when you send/receive the shirts... I'll keep a list of all the participants in my first post, so we can all know what is up, without crowding the board with "I sent" posts...

Please do post a pic when you see what you designer did for you shirt! I'm sure we'd all love to see what all the creative minds at Craftster can come up with....  Grin

If you missed out on the swap this time, sign ups for round 2 will start mind-late April, so keep your eye out for that, or if you want to be notified when the sign ups start, drop me a PM....  Grin

*steals Vampire Boy and his friends*

bwuahahahaha...  Grin

Vampire Boy is too cute... Good job!  Grin

Oh and the black bloby thingie makes me think of the blobs you found in the dungeons in the classic Nintendo game - Legend of Zelda... Or it could be a Hershey Kiss gone bad?
18  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re:Saving/Preserving Paper Patterns on: March 25, 2004 11:22:40 AM
I trace my patterns using tracing paper (since more often than not, that's what I have on hand) and just cut that out... Sometimes when a pattern has multiple "styles" it's much easier to just have a pattern copy for each style, then to adjust everytime I want to remake the pattern... It also keeps me from destroying a pattern by making sizing adjustment errors... hehe

Pattern Review.com - had a thread in it's forums with good suggestions on what to use to trace a pattern...

19  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re:convince my mom! on: March 25, 2004 11:05:13 AM
If they were hers from back in the day, it's quite possible that her holding onto them for "value" is just a vague excuse to hold onto them for sentimental reasons....

An idea would be - Find a place that will let you make color copies of the album cover, find a bunch of crummy albums at the thrift for cheap - glue the color copies onto the cardboard from the junk records, then spray with a clear sealer... and use that....
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re:What do cowgirls knit? on: March 23, 2004 11:42:06 PM
A cowboy hat!!  Grin

Ok wait, maybe that is not the greatest idea...

Maybe it's due to a suede fetish I have but making a lap blanket inspired by the blankets they put under the horse saddles, would seem very cowgirl to me... With the fringe on the edges of course  Wink
