1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Help with passport wallet - Adorn summer '07 on: May 20, 2007 11:58:38 AM
Hey, I am trying to make the passport wallet in the Adorn summer 07 issue.  I am wondering the actual dimensions of the paper pattern should be after they are blown up.  It says to blow them up 155% on a copier and I did that, but now that I have cut out all the fabric and startend sewing (!@#$?!!) I am realizing that the pieces are too small compaired with the two pieces that were not cut from the blown up patterns.  I figured I would just shrink those other pieces down but if I do that my passport won't fit into it.  Any help or suggestions please?  Thanks!
2  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / candy stripe problem on: February 23, 2007 07:56:17 PM
I have a problem trying to spin a two color candy stripe single.  Instead if it looking like the colors are nicely twisted around each other like a candy cane one color always tends to dominate and cover the other one up.  When I think I have the problem fixed it just happens again.How can I remendy this?  Thanks!
3  UNITED STATES / North Carolina / GOOD Fabric and ribbon sources? on: February 23, 2007 07:48:57 PM
Does anyone know where I could get some good quality fabrics?  Right now my main options is Hobby Lobby, and their quality just does not seem that good.  Are there any ribbon stores in NC?  I am tired of synthetics and I want to find real wool felt, suede, silk etc.  I live in Greensboro but I also frequent the Asheville and Raleigh area.  I heard there was a good fabric store in Walkertown but I am not sure where it is or how to get there.  Thanks!
4  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / keeping dye on: January 10, 2007 08:48:10 AM
I have a batch of Lanaset dye mixed up that has been sitting in my closet for over a year.  Will the dye still be good?  I just don't want to waste it if it will still work.  Thanks!
5  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / my one-night glam on: March 18, 2006 07:42:45 PM
Here are my one-night glam bracelet and necklace.  They were both wicked easy.  I think it took longer to get the tube-o-beads open than it took to make them both.  My only recommendation is try really hard to not make mistakes; when you try to frog wire you will have bad kinks in the wire and it is hard to get the rest of the beads to slide over them.

To make them, I just bought a tube of mixed golden/brown/yellow glass beads and picked out the ones I liked best.  I plan on wearing this with my wedding dress, which has golden beading on the front.  What do you think?

I think I did a good job of hiding the fact that I forgot to buy clasps in these photos! Smiley
6  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / One-Skein scarf on: March 09, 2006 04:48:38 PM
Here are some pictures of my one-skein scarf.  I did not make it as long as the one in the pattern, mine is about 60'' long instead of 96''.  I also used yarn that I spun, so it wasn't really one skein, it was two.  I really liked how it turned out.  The only problem is I did not make the ch loose enough so it has a slight curve it in, but it still looks cool.  What do you think?

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I'm ready for housework apron on: August 06, 2005 02:05:56 PM
Here are a couple of pictures the apron I made from the Sew Easy book.  It wasn't hard at all except that I ended up having to make my own bias tape.  I could not find a color that matched.  I found the fabric in the leftover bin for a dollar.  What do you think?

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Why pay 80 bucks, when I made it for free!! on: August 06, 2005 01:56:35 PM
I saw this awesome scarf in a Anthropologie catalog and they wanted 78 dollars for it.  I sad no way; I could make one myself.  Here is a link to a picture of it http://www.anthropologie.com/jump.jsp?itemID=6869&itemType=PRODUCT&iSubCat=351&iMainCat=335.

And here is mine.  I used both of knitting and crochet to make it.  I think I will add some embellishments like beads to the middle of the flowers later.  What do you think?

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Gettin' ready for winter scarf on: August 04, 2005 11:24:16 AM
I saw a version of this scarf in a yarn store and had to make on myself.  i use point 5 and some mohair, and while it was really easy to knit it was a pain in the butt to weave in all the ends. i can't wait for winter!

Here is a close up
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / embroidery times 50 on: August 04, 2005 11:04:53 AM
Here are a couple of pictures of some embroidery art I made for the Art-o-Mat (www.artomat.org) artist project.  I had to make 50 pieces that fit on a block that is 2 1/8" x 3 1/4" x 7/8"  The art work is then sold out of old cigarette vending machines.  I did all kinds of drinking containers and each one is different.  What do you think?
