4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Knit Slipper Fail on: June 06, 2011 01:10:31 PM
I'm surprised I don't have something new to post in here every other week!  Wink

Short story: 1 ball of left-over yarn, 1 'found' easy looking slipper pattern and here are the results:

there it is all knit up according to pattern(little slip of yellow paper)
Funky shape, right? *I think so!*

One end worked up to form a toe...OK...but the other end I couldn't figure out to save my life! So I stitched up the back and cut off the extra(it looks like a footprint...=]

...plenty more slipper patterns out there that work up easily and can help me destash extra yarn!!  Smiley
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Attic24-type Bag on: May 03, 2011 09:52:05 AM
Here is a fun project and my interpretation of it...first the site that the pattern comes from:


And my own creation:

I went two rows beyond what the pattern called for...so it turned out quite a bit larger on the base(and all around).
Therefore, I decreased the number of stitches on the way up the side then added loop and openings for the loop to go thru...the loop becomes the handle for my version of a pretty scrap-destash bag!  Smiley
6  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Mix of Fabrics...help Pls on: February 09, 2011 01:28:22 PM
I've cut up some cotton fabrics for a quilt top...Brick by Brick is the pattern.  It is 4"x 7 1/2" blocks.
In my color scheme I've found some chintz fabric that would go really nicely...but will it affect the end product if I add it in??  It seems to be a much sturdier fabric than the others and I'm not sure how it will quilt up.

Should I save it for another project?  Any help would be Really Apprciated!
thank you...=]
