1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Is there anywhere to buy Ballistic Nylon print fabric? on: April 03, 2008 03:03:34 PM
I'm finding a couple places that sell colors (a very SMALL selection of colors), but I want to find some cute prints. Lexie Barnes and Timbuk2 have to get there stuff somewhere!
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Sew-in interfacing on: September 27, 2006 03:40:43 PM
I'm using heavy weight, sew-in interfacing for the first time. If I am making a bag out of this, should I sew it to the main fabric like I would iron on regular interfacing, or should I just sew it in when I sew the lining and outside fabric together?

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / To wash, or not to wash... on: September 27, 2006 03:36:49 PM
I am making an Amy Butler style weekender bag, with the same sort of fabric. Being that I am not going to be washing this bag in the machine, do I need to pre wash the fabric?

I just can't show my little guy off enough! I used a fantastic Fiber Trends pattern for this one.

5  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Handpainting in the microwave? on: February 10, 2006 01:23:14 PM
I've been searching, but haven't really found anything....I woudl like to know how to steam handpainted yarn in the microwave as opposed to buying a steamer. I have CUshings dyes, a boatload of vinegar, and am itching to screw some roving up. lol. If Alton Brown can steam crabs in the microwave, then I am sure that we can do some wool, right?
6  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / What do you do with your ends? on: January 28, 2006 05:15:04 PM
Say you are done spinning a nice bobbin fill og yarn, and you have this end just hanging there. Do you knot it? Do you just let it hang? What do you do? Same goes for the other end.
7  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / It's almost done! on: January 22, 2006 07:15:22 AM
I am almost finished staining my wheel, and am going to start putting the top coat/sealer on today! I am really stoked, because this blue is turning out fantastic and the finish is a super gloss, and will be very shiny.

But most of all, I can't wait to put it back together to spin up some more yarn!

P.S. there are a couple pics on my blog.
8  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / How do I know if it is felted? on: January 04, 2006 12:09:08 PM
I just did some kool aid dying on some roving using the knitty tutorial (stove top method). It turned out well, but when I was drying the fibers and squeezing a bit of water out I was worried that I was accidentally felting it.

How do you know if that happens? Mine got a little fluffy, but I can stilll draft it and such.

P.S. It is driving me CRAZY that I don't have my camera to document this! I'm thinking I am goign to go get a disposable until dh comes back from Cali.
9  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / OMG! It's really here! on: January 03, 2006 01:26:11 PM
I got my ebay wheel today! It's a handmade one, and I got it SO cheap. I'm really suprised by how well it spins, and the treadle sits on the wood on the bottom such that it acts as sort of a lever, so you can lean your foot backwards so there are truly no dead spots on the wheel.

I'm also planning on staining it a color, so hop over to my blog http://www.chroniclesofyarnia.comand tell me what you think about the colors I like. I wish I had some pics, but none yet as my camera is with my husband on a business trip. (good timing, eh?)

Oh, and I have spun some of my bright red Lamb's Pride I got off of ebay and it is going suprisingly well! Love it!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Cottage Licenses? on: December 08, 2005 08:44:43 AM
Does anyone do this? I am looking specifically through littleturtleknits.com and woolwonder.com to do this. Is it worth it? Is it difficult? I know I can whip out some soakers, no problem, but what about finding people who want to buy them?

LMK what your experience has been.
