1  Re: How can I make this bracelet I saw on YouTube? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by MinnieMay9 on: May 11, 2017 07:03:06 PM
I don't know why I never considered it being sewn onto something.

Here are some other pics, I think the upper left is the most helpful screen grab I have been able to make so far:

I also found these two sitting on my desktop...not sure why I didn't include them before:

EDIT: I'm wondering if I could use this YouTube tutorial, but add bigger beads on the top during the last steps:

2  How can I make this bracelet I saw on YouTube? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by MinnieMay9 on: March 13, 2017 08:02:42 PM
Hello everyone! My hubby got me watching some vlogs and I noticed this bracelet that one of the ladies sometimes wears. I tried asking about it on their FB page, but they are really popular and are traveling a lot, so who knows if I hear back.
I love the way it looks and would love to be able to make sonething similar. Sorry theses aren't the best pictures, I snagged them off their FB site and zoomed in.

3  Please help me find this yarn. in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by MinnieMay9 on: December 05, 2015 11:13:21 AM

I do a lot of charity knitting and we get a lot of mystery yarn donated. I got the yarn pictured and really like it. I don't think it is Noro because it is a pretty sturdy yarn. I know it has wool to some degree in it.
The color on the outside not shown is a grey blue color.

I really want to get more, but first I need to know who to throw money at. Thanks for any guesses!!

4  Re: How to twist in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by MinnieMay9 on: March 11, 2015 07:19:01 PM
Instead of taking all the groups and twirling them together, try dividing them into sections and laying each section over each other in one direction.

For example, you would divide the whole thing into 2 or 3 groups on a table.  Then you would take the left most group and move it over the top of the other one(two).  Then you would take the one that is now the left most and lay it over the others.

I drew a pic to try and see if that would help to make any sense.  You aren't twisting the groups, just laying one on top of the others, but since they are all being moved in the same direction it will make it look twisted.

5  Can't seem to find 1.75" rings anywhere. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by MinnieMay9 on: March 11, 2015 07:18:30 AM
I found a kit on Etsy and used their idea as inspiration for something of my own.  I tried the idea I had with stuff I had laying around and it worked pretty well.
However, I don't really like the look of the finished piece with the things I had on hand because the top of the earring circle has a fairly noticeable connector.
I have been looking for plain rings, they don't have to be solid, they could be like a jump ring that are about 1.75" across.  I know I can make my own and I have asked The Ring Lord about making them for me, but I would rather spend most of my time/money on the inner sections.

Here are my samples from what I had on hand to give you an idea of what I am making.

6  I would love some help finding a pattern to make this piggy pillow. in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions by MinnieMay9 on: September 21, 2014 04:57:13 PM
I have looked online, but for some reason, I have just had no luck.  I would love to be able to make my own pig pillow (or maybe a kitty pillow) very similar to the one in the picture.  While I would love for it to be a free pattern, if it is by one of the big companies, I could wait to get it at work for a good deal, so feel free to link those too.

7  How to finish this cat. in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions by MinnieMay9 on: December 18, 2013 08:08:49 AM
My mom found a listing on Craig's List for a bunch of scraps of fabric.  She got me a bag of really cool ones, but as I was going through I found all these oddly shaped bundles pinned together.  When I flattened them out it looked like a shape of a cat.  So now I have a bunch of these bundles that have a cat body, two back legs and a tail.  I have a general idea on how to sew it, but I don't know what kind of finishing this kind of project usually gets.

Here is one of the bundles.  You can see that the cat will be seen in profile and the back legs will help hold it up.
If anyone has worked on something like this before I would love some ideas.  Pictures wouldn't hurt either ^.~

8  How can I make the pattern for leggings show the different heights around waist? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by MinnieMay9 on: October 25, 2013 08:24:29 AM
Hi all!
I got these leggings from Forever 21 and I love them.  They fit me perfectly and even magically fit my friend who is about 20 lbs lighter than me.  Because of these leggings I have discovered my love of them.  Since these fit so well, I want to make more so I can have tons.
I generally know how to make patterns from things, but nothing like this.  As you can see in the pic below, the front is shorter than the back.  How do I show this on the pattern?
I know it would be easier to take it apart and make a pattern that way, but I don't want to!  I would love to be able to just trace it and add a but more for seam and cuffs.
How should I go about showing the differing heights?

Edit: I actually figured it out on my own.  I was going to make it so I had to lay the pattern on the fold, but I realized that I could just make the whole leg pattern flat.  That way I can put the front lower than the back.  It also means less cutting.
Go me!

9  I need help naming this mystery trim. in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by MinnieMay9 on: June 05, 2013 12:58:54 PM
I bought this trim at Jo Anns when it went clearance a good long while ago.  I thought it was pretty, but since I didn't know what I was going to do with it, I didn't buy very much.  However, I now know what I am going to use it for.  I don't have the name of it anymore, so I'm hoping someone here will help me be able to find more of it online.

It is a three row piece of metal-mesh with a clear iron-on backing.  I have some in silver (pictured), pink, and blue.

10  How can I make fabric have this pleated/gathered look for hair clips? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by MinnieMay9 on: July 19, 2012 08:42:08 PM
Someone I know likes to design things, but doesn't have the skills to make what she envisions.  I told her I would make some of the things for her.  It's been pretty easy until we got to this one.  I have no idea how to make fabric do this.

They are going to be about 2.5 inches wide.
The pleat/gathers can go to the center of the design (she just left them out for the picture since she is going to have things go in the center)  She wants it out of suede, but if anyone things there is a better fabric for it, I can pass it on to her.
