1  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / small floor loom recommendation on: May 01, 2010 01:00:45 PM
I'm looking for a small floor loom. Anyone have a personal recommendation?

I'm looking to trade my floor loom for a smaller one. I have a loom built in the '70s that was originally for physical therapy. It has a weaving width of approximately 45". It is a four harness, six treadle and in great condition. I'm looking for something smaller with about half that weaving width. I'm willing to trade if anyone is looking to upgrade to a larger weaving width.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Pants from shorts *Edit to show the back of the pants on: September 22, 2009 08:06:53 AM
My hubby outgrew a pair of old jean shorts but they were in otherwise good condition so I hated to get rid of them. I ended up making a pair of pants for my son. They just have elastic around the waistband and this gets a bit bulky in the back b/c the pockets are back there too. But I think they are really cute b/c they are very wide. He seems to like them too. Sorry there isn't a better detailed picture...this is the only one I could get!

**Here are a couple of pictures of the back to show you what I meant about the pockets. Again...I used Petchy's awesome ten minute pants tutorial as a base for these. Now if I only had an old Jncos patch...

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My son's favorite stores on: September 22, 2009 08:03:20 AM
So my son REALLY likes Target and Best Buy. I found this huge box and thought I could make him his own version. It has ended up also being a nice step stool so that he can turn the light on in his room  Grin

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Itty Bitty pants from napkins on: September 22, 2009 07:54:40 AM
The Pier One close to me recently went out of business and I picked up some fabric napkins on the cheap. I couldn't decide what to do with them until I thought of making some pants for my daughter. She's 4 months now and they have fit her for about a month now. My only problem is finding shirts that they match! I just guessed on the sizing b/c the only other pants she had were stretchy.

5  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / Ideas for finishing some coasters on: August 13, 2009 04:17:23 PM
I am currently trying to weave some coasters using VERY small dowels. The only problem is that I am having trouble deciding how I should finish the edges. I don't really want to knot the ends b/c then the coasters won't lay flat. I can't weave in the ends b/c the warp threads are way bigger than the sticks and it would look weird. Any ideas??
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Variation of Petchy Dress on: July 19, 2009 07:26:34 AM
This is a dress I made using a modified version of this dress http://madebypetchy.blogspot.com/2008/06/free-pattern-baby-dresstunic.html from Made By Petchy. I sized it down for 0-3 months then lengthened it so that I wouldn't need a diaper cover...which I still can't find a good pattern for. It's really nice for Alabama summers because it's such thin material and it's so light.

Comments welcome  Grin
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Baby legs gone awry on: January 23, 2008 01:36:42 PM
So, I thought I would make some baby legs for my son...and I don't know where my brain was when I was in Target. I bought just plain old women's socks. I looked and them and though, "My son's legs aren't that big!" well... as you can see, they are! What is crazy is that they seem as tight on his legs as they would on mine! These at least work on his arms though Wink. I'm going to make some more from some tube socks I found the other day. They should work right!!

Check out this huge butt!!

And the incredibly safe bouncy seat used for support. I'm so irresponsible  Cheesy
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Diaper Bag on: January 23, 2008 01:32:15 PM
I finally got tired of the "L is for Lions" baby blue Walmart diaper bag that I got at a shower. I longed for something that I liked as much as my son. I have been saving my "Tattoo" fabric for something great and this was it!!! I used a pattern...I don't remember what it was and it is buried under tons of other ones now....Hope you like it! I know I do. Funny thing though, my DH won't wear this one on his shoulder but he would wear the goofy blue obviously baby one. He says this one is too much like a purse  Grin

There are no places for bottles or anything because I was just ready to get it finished. But, so far there has been no leakage!

9  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Coils Bag on: January 23, 2008 01:16:01 PM
I spun this yarn:

and couldn't think of anything to do with it. Eventually, I had some extra warp on the loom and thought to weave it into a large bag. It ended up being a weird proportion so I made two bags instead. It's a little brighter than I'd wear...but fun to make something other than a scarf or towel Smiley

This picture doesn't show the colors, but you can see how big it is.

Okay, so I can never think of color combos to spin together or anything so I thought I would geek out and do some Marvel yarns:
Captain America:

Iron Man:

And here was my first try at coils. It's called Purple Nurple:
