Make sure you have a really good, quality printer with at  least 1200 dpi. Send me a message and I will give you some more tips!

I too am a lefty tought by righties and to this day I still cant figure out exactly how I picked it up so easily. I think it was just lots of practice and trial and error. Which does you really know good it you need to get it done for a class.  I have heard that the mirror thing does work really well. Just keep practicing, there is hope for the "right minded" to learn it.
973  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Tons Of Trading Cards on: January 21, 2005 02:27:16 PM
A friend of mine made a purse out of old "Rock Cards".
She used clear vinyl, sandwhich the cards in between, sewed a seem in between each card to seal them in and made a front, back, sides and bottom (5 peices), sewed them up, sewed a nylon handle. Similar to the juice pouch purses.
974  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: *MOM IN NEED* I'd like to make bibs for my son on: January 21, 2005 02:23:51 PM
I have made some with terry cloth kitchen towels and t-shirt ribbing, similar to the pattern above. They are the best bibs ever.
Even cooler, wait till after all the major holidays and stores will have holiday towels marked down dirt cheap and make bibs for every holiday (christmas, thanksgiving, easter, halloween, etc). I have gotten towels after the holidays for $.25.
I really like the washable vinyl idea. You could just surge around the edges as well!

I would just open the top edge of the sheet and slide the wire through it. I have made my own closet doors that way (with a shower curtain tension rod).

977  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / afgan using broomstick lace pin? on: January 18, 2005 07:58:50 AM
I got a broomstick lace pin in a big bag of yarn and other stuff I got at a thriftstore and I really dont know how to use it. I remember seeing someone making and afgan using it. Anyone know of any patterns?

I dont know what weight the yarn I used was (I found a big bag of yarn at a thrift store with no labels), but it is kinda thick.
I used it when I went out Sat, held up really well. The handles streched a little but overall works really well. I got a lot of compliments on it. Lots of "OMG you made that".
I am working on another one now with a lighter weight yarn and a G hook and I think I will get the same results.

Thanks everyone!
I really suck at reading patterns, so telling exactly how I did it may be hard. I just made it up as I went. It is basically a long panel folded in half and stitched up the sides.
It is 40 half DC across, I made 2 rows then I just spaced enought for the handle for 1 row. I just kept making rows till it looked like it was the right size when I folded it and did the reverse for the other handle. I whip stithed up the sides.
I found the flower pattern somewhere online (I typed "easy crochet flower" into google and that was the first easy one I saw).
THe pattern is really similar to the one for the grocery bag purse.
I made a matching coin purse as well. I will post a pic later!
