21  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Needle question on: July 31, 2006 10:34:04 AM
Are the needles used for embroidery and cross-stitch the same? I was thinking of doing the "Fuck Cancer" subversive CS and don't need the whole kit with hoop and all, but are the needles b/w embroidery and coss-stich different?

23  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / i 8> ky (not the jelly) on: May 10, 2006 07:34:57 PM
I started making this for a coworker around Christmas. I just got around to finishing it. I feel like it looks kinda ick, but she loves it. I started out hand embroidering the applique and it looked really nice, but it kept getting knotted so I just ripped it out and did Tulip paint instead:


24  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Raggedy Quilt - how to? on: May 03, 2006 08:24:15 AM
I have a quilt that for the longest time I thought my mamaw made, but I recently found out it's something she bought from a garage sale. It's really crappy and not technically/aestheticly pleasing, but I love it.

The back side is large pieces of flannel. The inside is of course some kind of batting. The top side is just bits of fabric scraps from this and that - flannel, cord, 70s polyester print, just leftover clothing cut up I assume. It is connected with yarn tied in the middle of each square. It is not "quilted" in the sense that it's put together and sewn through all the layers.

Is there a certain name for this type of quilt, and do you know where I can find a how-to? I would love to try something like this sometime, as the quilt I have is starting to fall apart. I feel like it has lots of character and I just LOVE it. (I can post pics later if that'd help.)


25  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Doggie Cheerleading Skirt? on: May 02, 2006 01:12:02 PM
I am just starting to get a feel for sewing and am making an apron. That is turning out to be somewhat of a disaster (I read the pattern wrong and now have extra "wrong" fabric), so I thought of making my parent's dog (pug/boston terrier) a cheerleading skirt since the fabric is green and white gingham, which are my little brother's school colors.

Does anyone know anywhere I could find a good tutorial for this? I tried searching the board for "cheerleader skirt" but didn't really find any to my liking. Most of what I found were miniskirts that had pleats on the side and were more trendy/junior's apparel than actual cheerleading-looking skirts.
26  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitty Uterus Commission? on: April 05, 2006 12:27:07 PM
Hi all,

I was diagnosed with cancer last year and had to have a radical hyst. and my 1-year cancerversary is coming up next month. I am not sure if this topic needs to go elsewhere, but I was wondering if anyone would be intrerested in quoting me a price for two of the knitty uteri? (I have a friend I met that went through the same thing and has been awesome so I thought it'd be a cool gift for her.) I don't know how to knit, have no time to learn, and would really really like one of these for myself and one for my friend.

PM or reply here if you're interested and I can afford it. Or maybe we could work out a trade?
27  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Dog Tutu My very first thing I've ever sewn! on: March 22, 2006 01:31:48 PM
Got a sewing machine for Valentine's Day, and so I took it to my parent's house and mom showed me how to set it up and get going.

With a little silver lame' and elastic, I made a tutu for my parents' dog Dixie (turned out to be more of a miniskirt, though)!


I think Dix was sort of humiliated, and my sister joked that we should put high heels and false lashes on her and send her to make some money on the streets Smiley

I was relatively satisfied with how it turned out, except I forgot to turn the fabric inside-out to make the seam so it ended up with a small fin, which my mom graciously modeled:


28  COOKING / Dessert / Baklava lovah! on: March 22, 2006 01:25:10 PM
So I didn't get too crafty for the boy's b-day, but I did make him a big pan of baklava. Hope he likeys!

29  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / The Boy's Birthday - Ideas for Cash/Gift Certificate? on: March 13, 2006 12:55:46 PM
I am either going to give the boy cash or an amazon.com gift certificate for his b-day (next Tues.) so he can get a new record player. Any cool ideas on how I could maket his exciting for him? I was thinking of making a record player card but thought maybe that would be kind of boring. Help!  Wink
30  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Cut + Paste Mix CD on: February 06, 2006 01:32:56 PM
Not terribly crafty - I originally wanted to stencil on the CD and embroider the cover, but procrastination got the best of me, so I went to my old fallbacks, Xerox and Xacto. This was for a trade involving @ 16 people.
