Wow!!! I really don't know how you did it without bursting to tears in frustration (like i would have done) at every problem.
Great job for the result and for the patience!!! so double great job!

I really gave them for Xmas, but i wasn't brave enough to post 'em till now.  Embarrassed

For the capelet i didn't use a pattern. I was helped so i don't remember it very well.
Basically you just fold the fabric in half, and then in half again. then you cut the "open" angle round so you have something like a circle skirt.

I made the collar from the scraps of fabric i got from cutting. Then i just sewed the lining (in some way...) and voil!

But this form being very round and full, i don't suggest it for a long cape, that could be too much, especially if you're working with heavy fabric (like mine was)!!!

hope all i said made some sense...thank for the comments!!!

Hi everyone!

I started crafting not more than one year ago, and most of my braveness i took from craftster!!!

Last Christmas i did every single present with my own hands. I couldn't believe they came out. Let's start with the ones for mom and sister.

For mom i made a felted wool capelet with silk lining. Quite easy, being it a round shape. I added some buttons to keep it closed. My mom likes to be warm...

Here it is, modeled by my sister, cause mom didn't want to be photographed

and the back. the sewing didn't come out perfectly round...

But sister's present was a scarf. It had a lilac fleece for the back (and it was super duper soft!) and a purple jersey knit for the front part.  The knit had a strange texture, it was like doubled and then one layer was torn off in some points. i really liked it...

here in all its glory!

For now it's all...but i'll come back (like terminator!!!)

I think you should do it according to your personal taste. I would rather tuck the sides in, but if you like that "petal" shape, keep it. nice fabric and i share with you the love for maxi-dresses!

Hi everyone!

I have some question about transfering images...

In May I'll attend my sister's first marriage anniversary. I discovered that the first anniversary is "cotton". So i would like to give her something embroidered, you know like some towels with an embroidery that has a special meaning for the couple. I'm a total newbie, but i can do some classic stitches, some silk ribbon and absolutely no cross-stitching.

anyway the greatest problem is that i really really can't draw anything. so i would like to transfer some pre-done images on the fabric, but i don't know how...can you please help with tips?

Thanks a lot!!!

Well, i can completely understand you, craftydame, when you say it's hard to name that kind of relationship. I've lived an experience quite similar to yours; no physical abuse, "just" a person that (intentionally or not) puts you down in everything, so you stop loving yourself at all. I lost many friends becaus of a 4 year story like that, i lost confidence, and i was totally cut out from the outside world. So I still don't know how to deal with it. I feel bad if i call it "domestic abuse" but...it was. The scarring is real even if it's not visible. (And about "not visible" my actual boyfriend could talk a lot...for him it's perfectly visible).

Anyway, good piece. Love the colors and the satin stitch in the heart.

I don't recommend too much adding on that skirt, because you don't want it to become too frilly. I think maybe you can shorten it a little (your legs are ok, so if you show 'em a bit more it won't be a problem) and then add a ruffle or a strip of large knife pleats of the same fabric to the bottom hem. I think that pleats should be large but not long. Hope this help!
Anyway, if you really don't want to touch it, use the contrasting color of the stripes to match all.
