Thank you so much for taking the time to reply. Smiley

The plillow sham/swatch idea is good. I'll definitely make use of that. I'll also hunt around for some nice cotton. You're right, the jersey knit (ie: stretch) doesn't sound like the best idea for me to be trying with this concept!

Thanks again. Smiley
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Anthropologie Cirrus Bedding on: July 18, 2011 02:46:29 PM
Hello! Haven't seen a post for this so I thought I would ask. Smiley

I would love to make my own version of the Cirrus duvet cover from Anthropologie. It's made in a lightweight cotton jersey fabric and it has what looks like similarly-colored hem tape or trim across it. From my recollection, it was not stretchy where the trim was placed. 

Please let me know if the link below does not work.
(There wouldn't be so many copycat requests for items if their stuff wasn't so frakking expensive!  Grin)

Does anyone know of a good gathering foot I could attach to my Brother sewing machine? Does anyone have any good tips for gathering? I'm thinking it would be better to not do this by hand, if possible. I'm not too great at the basting stitch method, but this project would sure give me some practice!

5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / silky polka dot fabric on: April 27, 2008 08:52:50 AM
i was curious if anyone knew where to find some silky polka dot fabric? i love the large dot patterns but small would be ok, as well. Smiley
i've been searching specifically for black background with white dots and all i can find is cotton/quilting material with the polka dots on it.

i've been wanting to experiment with a tiramisu recipe and i think this one might be the one. Smiley
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: berroco's dizzy on: March 16, 2008 03:41:09 PM
thank you for your help!
i did about five rows of the lace pattern part, and another reason i stopped and frogged back was because i thought i might have dropped a stitch as well... it just wasn't looking quite right. i'll attempt again soon!
the advice about the YOs was helpful too. didn't think that it might just stretch out once it's done. i noticed the size of the hat was kind of small as well... Smiley i tried on the band when i frogged back to that point and it seemed like it was going to fit well, even though i have a slightly larger than normal head. Smiley
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / berroco's dizzy on: March 09, 2008 10:29:32 AM
i'm working on berroco's dizzy and i can't seem to get my hat to look like the one on the mannequin on the site:
nor the pretty ones on ravelry:

the part of the pattern that's giving me the most trouble is as follows:
* K6, SSK, k2 tog, yo, k1, yo, rep from * until piece measures approximately 5 1/2 from beg.

my question is: if there are two yarn overs, won't that produce two holes along the swirl part of the hat? that's what happened when i attempted this recently... Smiley i went on to knittinghelp.com and i'm doing the decreases properly...

i don't get it. please help!  Roll Eyes
