1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Seventh Doctor Cosplay - Vest? on: April 06, 2010 08:36:46 AM
I know this is a bit old so your 'con may have already passed, but just thought I'd add this idea. At a con I went to last year there was a Seventh Doctor costumer who had actually painted the sweater vest- and it looked amazing! They found a fairly tight knit very fine yarn yellow sweater, made a question mark stencil, and carefully applied it. Nobody would believe it was just paint until they looked really closely.

Took a lot of slow and careful work, but not as much as learning intarsia knitting. Smiley

Those are gorgeous! I would absolutely hang either of those on my wall. Especially like the staggered effect of the second.

Wow! Absolutely amazing.

I love Seal of Rassilon things because it's kind of sneaky geeky- it looks vaguely celtic to those not in the know, but fans will squee with delight.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: American Apparel Dolman Sleeve Hoodie on: April 01, 2010 11:35:31 AM
Because this is such a non-fitted clothing item, it's really easy to make without a pattern.

I just got a large sheet of newspaper, traced the outline of a sweatshirt, then made the sleeves come in from above the wrist to the waist at a slightly curved angle. You could make one out of a cheap clearance fabric first to try it, but if you have any sewing experience at all you should be able to do it without a pattern.

American Apparel has a no returns policy now, but if need be you could visit one of their stores to look at the hoody and get a feel for the construction.

Embroidery floss?! Wow. That is some tiny knitting! Brilliant cozy, I tried to make something similiar for my phone but it kept snagging, now I'm embarrassed that I never thought to line it with felt.

Can I come to your house to watch the new series premiere? Because watching it in that would make it at least 580% more awesome. Brilliant!

Amazing! The "!" thought bubble really sums it up well.

*sniffle* That's beautiful, that is. You should sell it to Hallmark. Much better than any of their sappy cards.  Wink

These are adorable, really nice work and a good cause. I especially love the way you did River's hair!
