23  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Button / Badge / Pin Makers on: March 16, 2007 10:03:23 AM
I got my 1 1/4 inch button maker from badge-a-minit the other day.
So far, I'm pretty satisfied with it.

Although when I tried to make my first button, I couldn't separate these 2 rings that were supposed to go together and then come apart to be used separately in a later step.

I figured that some tinkering would be required and I probably would lose some buttons on my first few tries. But in the end, I think I've got it.

The only complaint that I have is that the button maker didn't come with 1 1/4 inch button making instructions. Not that I had problems reading the 2 1/4 inch button making instructions. But when I emailed the company (I couldn't call them 'cause I don't live in the US.) they emailed me with tips and more detailed instructions for the 1 1/4 inch button maker.

But hey it works and it works rather marvelously. I'm happy that I got it.

Here's a sample of the buttons I've made.

have you ever been into the giant ica (i think?) at kungens kurva?
they have an "american" food section... they might have jars of maraschino cherries with stems...
there's a supermarket in fridhemsplan... i can't remember the name right now but it's near the entrance to the t-bana... they have a small section that sells "american" groceries too...
NK's grocery might have them too...
good luck with that!

26  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / what better to make than medieval weaponary? on: November 04, 2006 03:56:54 PM
I was invited to a Battle Royale (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_Royale) themed party for hallowe'en and we were to bring our own weapons for our battle royale. Unfortunately my friends and I were all too busy to really arrange it, so we postponed it.
But I already had an idea for the weapon that I would bring so I went ahead and made it anyways.
...And here it is...

I crocheted the ball and chain out of 100% acrylic Bernat yarn using 5.5mm crochet hook.
The handle is made from wood.
Some people has asked why I didn't crochet the handle. My explaination is that a crocheted and stuffed handle would be kind of floppy and you really need a good solid handle to maximize its full swinging potenial.

28  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / legality question... copyright related... on: October 23, 2006 08:53:02 AM
i was at a local yarn store the other day and i saw an ad for a "surrogate" knitter...
now i have some friends who wanted me to knit some items from the patterns that are not mine... and unless it is a gift... i charge labour & materials...
i understand that i cannot sell items made from other ppl's patterns and claim it as my own...
but i was wonder if anyone knew if i could sell items made from other ppl's patterns... WITH notation that it is not my design... and charge only labour and materials...
29  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / BEHOLD! MY kitty hat! on: October 07, 2006 02:27:49 PM

I followed the pattern from Stitch 'N Bitch...
More or less the hat is the pattern from Stitch 'N Bitch...
I shortened the seed stitch areas... to 1 inch... rather than the 1 3/4 inch...
The ears are also different...

I knitted them in a round so they're like wee cat ear shapped pitas...
Then I stuffed them with a bit of fiberfill...
The side ear flaps were also not done in seed stitch...
