1  U.K. AND IRELAND / IRELAND / Re: Yarn Shops (or anything craft related really!) in Ireland? on: June 05, 2009 05:52:56 AM
i was just there a week or so ago! (also it's worth noting that I can be folded up flat and fit in your suitcase) there is very little yarn available in ireland actually spun from the sheep of ireland. it's  too rough for sweaters and garments. the bulk of that yarn is sent to those countries that make carpets and such.

most spinners, knitters and weavers use fiber that is imported, from south america or austrailia, occasionally japan. in dublin check out this is knit and springwools. i had great luck at this is knit, alas, i never got a chance to find springwools.

that's a cute hat, the colors are quite nice together. well done. And the snappy snaps are neat too! great job!
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / I love a flat fell seam! on: March 12, 2009 07:47:01 AM

this tote is simple and basic, and when the handles are done in less bulky fabric than flannel (all i had on hand that matched) it's totally foldable and stowable.

i love an unlined flat totebag that one can fold up and slip in a pocket. but i also love a nice tidy seam. what's a girl to do? they use a flat fell seam, of course!

now that i know how to do this, I'm going to make a few more for myself!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: Boys button ups on: March 07, 2009 08:47:08 AM
you and your boys inspired me to get on the stick and start sewing for my nephews!

i used simplicity 2856, and though the collar is a bit incorrect, for a very first go at a collar shirt, i'm pretty chuffed!

thanks for the pattern number! your post is inspiring me to make a few for my nephews! now i'm off to have a look in the stash, since i'm shopping the stash, not the shops right now.

hey, those came out great! what pattern did you use for them?
7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Some photos I am proud of - my dog and Bermuda - IMG heavy! on: March 05, 2009 05:58:23 AM
i dunno that i think it's terribly important to be professional, unless you make your living that way. to me, it's most important that snapping snaps makes you smile. And all the better they can make us smile too! the dog is priceless. my favorite bermuda one is the giant hibiscus, and the one with the blue sky and the horizon on the slant.

great job!

8  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sewing furniture bumpers on: February 23, 2009 08:34:35 AM
sorry, i just saw this post. My mom made the bumpers for the cribbies, and i bet making them for tables is pretty similar, but i bet the noodles are good place to start. Me thinks if you thread them inside a tube of fabric, and then the tube of fabric is somehow attached to a table cloth of sorts they would look more.... oh i dunno, purpose built i think.

let me have a think and see if i can post a bit of an illustration of what i'm thinking.
9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: What can you make with fat quarters? on: February 23, 2009 08:31:07 AM
it's fat quarter month over at www.sewmamasew.com there are some good looking projects there.

i think i'm going to make a few flat carry all bags, and perhaps a new lunch bag for myself.

also, don't forget queenofdiy's singlet grocery bag, those can be made with four fat quarters.
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Pirate tea wallet on: February 17, 2009 07:58:02 AM
thomas marrow, you got it in one!

that way they don't get all wrecked in the bottom of our purse! sometimes i'm not sure which is more important, our money wallet or our tea wallet!

i posted a tutorial here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=194155.msg2049799#msg2049799
