1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Le Slouche Beret on: October 30, 2007 03:05:14 PM
let me just say this in an amazing pattern! I was looking for a nice beret pattern and I discovered this little gem. It was a really quick, instant gratification knit that accompanied me on the bus and will show up in several other colours as holiday gifts! I love seed stitch, so I didn't want to kill myself though if you hate seed stitch this pattern also looks good in stockinette (because I browsed through other peoples FO's on Ravelry Cheesy)

*here's the pattern*:

p.s. I haven't posted in a while, it's nice to be back after the summer!!

2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Garden Party on: September 06, 2007 08:21:31 PM
So oribanana and I want to have a garden party while the weather's still good. we have most of the party planned already, from mini sandwiches to the fake flowers I will probably make as decoration next week. I was just wondering if anyone had some ideas they feel like putting out there, to see if there's anything we've missed.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Azalea dress on: July 03, 2007 08:20:44 PM
For those that have discovered the Burda Style website, this is one of their latest patterns. I fell in love and went straight out to Value Village to pick up some old bedsheets to make one.

I was lucky enough to find not only an amazing pale yellow bed sheet with white polka-dots similar to a dress I have, but I found some nice blue fabric with a flower print. Now, the fabric is polyester, but the sheet is cotton so it's actually a very comfortable dress. It's nice and airy, and fits perfectly. I highly reccomend this pattern, and the Burda Style website with many more great patterns!

My mom took this picture, I had to catch a little bit of the sun before it went down!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Lilac summer hoodie on: June 21, 2007 11:36:45 AM
Yet again Wendy Mullin came out with more fantastic patterns! Her two latest patterns included an awsome hoodie I had to try. It appealed to me because of its big loose sleeves and it generally looked cooler than any plain hoodies I had in my closet. I searched around until my local fabric store had the pattern in, and found some great sweatshirt fabric on sale! I got the 2 meters called for in the pattern for under $10! The total cost of this project was just over $20, and it's toally worth it!!!

The hardest part was threading the ribbon through the hood because I could only find really small or really big grommets and opted for the small ones, however a safety pin wouldn't go through them. Other than that the pattern was a sinch, only took me a few hours last night inbetween dance ect. I want to make another one out of lighter fabric to wear in the summer when it gets hotter, but now as the weather is "unsettled" as the wether girl puts it, I can still wear my new hoodie.

These are probably the best photos I've ever taken on a self timer!

Sorry for the pouty looks, it was starting to rain  Cheesy Thanks for looking, I can't wait to see more of this great hoodie!!
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / ikea mirror on: June 10, 2007 07:25:00 PM
who doesn't love a trip to ikea? on my last visit I picked up one of those plain $3 mirrors and jazzed it up a bit. I started with a coat of white paint, followed by gold paint sponged on, and finally some pictures I glued on. It's really simple, and all just came together, but I love it and it goes perfectly with my room.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Crafty Tool Belt on: May 05, 2007 06:32:56 PM
I finally got around to making that tool belt from Tease, a t-shirt re-con book. I wanted to make it since I got the book. I'm using it in my HS sewing class and it's actually useful for holding my scissors and pins while I run around from the cutting table to my sewing machine to the iron ect........

In the book it's supposed to be a gardening tool belt, so really it could be used for anything! You never know when you might need something on hand that doesn't fit in your pocket!
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / f%@$# me, or how do you put a zipper head back on a zipper??? on: March 15, 2007 06:38:48 PM
The title says it all. I was trying on my capris in progress and I accidentally zipped the zipper all the way up, which I hadn't fixed yet so the head wouldn't come off because I had to shorten the zipper to fit.

So I'm standing there in my capris with a zipper head in my hand  Shocked

Anyone successfuly gotten a zipper head back on a zipper? I really don't want to put another zipper in. I guess I was just excited 'cause I'm going away tomorrow and was going to finnish the capris tonight, but now if I can't fix the zipper I will have to wait until I get back.
8  CANADA / British Columbia / Lower maninland fabric stores- looking for jersey fabric on: March 04, 2007 05:59:50 PM
Hello fellow BC craftster's. I have been searching for some purple jersey fabric for a dress. So far I have been to Fabric Land and Fabricana in Coquitlam, and they don'y have any purple jersey. I don't really care about the shade, and wouldn't mind other colours besides bright turquise or red (the only colours I seem to be finding. Really, blue looks fine on me as well as purple.

I don't really know of many fabric stores besides those two and Dressew, so that's why I'm asking. Anything in down town Vancouver or close to a sky train would be helpful.

Thanks a lot!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Built by Karen **new project pictures added** on: February 24, 2007 05:09:57 PM
As with many other crafsters, I have fallen in love with Wendy Mullin's patterns. The first one I fell in love with was the 4111 top.

It only took me four hours (one hour a day in my sewing class) to complete because it was really simple. It's also terribly cute!!

I will deffinatly make another one when I have nothing else to do, and I would also like to lengthen it into a dress. So many plans, must sew quicker!!

The next pattern: 3835 (top/tunic/dress) I really wanted to make the short dress, but couldn't find any fabric I liked so I settled for some little leaf patterned fabric for the top. Pictures to come soon!

I finnished the second top. I must say this is the simplest little top pattern ever. So quick and easy, and very cute! Plus different with each fabric you make it in. And it only takes one meter of fabric!

So you must know by now I love love love this pattern. I decided to add the pockets to it even though it's only shown for the dress. I think it looks cute, and they blend in witht he fabric so only I know they're there!

Plus I made a matching headband with scraps. I got the idea from Teen Vogue's new website. They have this feauture where readers intereperate fashion photo's that are in the mag. One feature was on headbands, and they showed this picture of a girl with an amazing headband that was braided with threee different fabrics. So I made one with the scraps and I think it looks cute.

I feel like a hippy, but I'm totally going to wear this tomorrow!

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Felted Bobble Scarf (Frankenknits) on: December 17, 2006 09:11:38 PM
So I was looking around Knitty this morning and decided to look at the articles. I read the Frankenknits and there was the greatest project. Cut up a sweater, felt it, but tie buttons into it to make little bobbles. There is an actual term for what I did, but I forget what it's called.

They also added flowers and leaves, which I will do but I'm going to either knit or cut flowers out of felt. I think it's so cute, and really easy as a last minute gift. Now who haven't I made a scarf for......?
