1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Earthy Owl Necklace on: January 02, 2007 07:56:39 PM
Hey.. This is my first time posting an actual project. I got a digital camera for Christmas, and am putting it to use.

This is the best photo I could get.

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Autographed single DVD Display? on: December 12, 2006 09:07:02 PM
I'm looking all over the internet for something but can't find a thing.

I have several autographed dvd cases I'd like to display, however, I don't know how.

The most feasible thing I'd like to do, is cut and make the individual stands out of cardboard and decorate the cardboard with paint or collaging of some sort.

Does anybody have any suggestions of patterns I could cut out of cardboard to create my case?

I don't have any money, and really only have access to cardboard, glue, scissors and box cutters. Smiley

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Mesh hats + iron on? on: May 09, 2006 10:37:58 PM
So, I've mentioned this before on other areas of Craftster, but I have three autoimmune diseases. Having them makes me incredibly sensitive to the sun, and I can't find any hats I like / that look good on me.

I found a website that sells plain mesh trucker hats for fairly inexpensive - my only question, is would iron-on transfer printer paper work for the material on the front of the hat? I've never really used Iron on before.

And if not - how would you suggest I go about putting an image on the front of the hat without embroidery or sewing?

I think it'd be really cool to design some graphs (since I am a graphic designer) around some of the obscure stuff I like and put them on the hats.

Anyway - thanks for any help that might come my way. :)
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet Charts / color changing on: December 30, 2005 01:12:22 AM
Does anybody have a good pattern for learning how to crochet with various different colors?

I want to crochet something into something directly, but I don't know how to do it easily from the charts.

I mean charts like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=60891.0, and making stuff like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=55433.0 (like the mushroom cozy)

Please help! I'd love to learn your techniques...
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Groovy Crochet on: December 25, 2005 09:10:04 PM

I know Groovy Crochet has a lot of patterns up but it's an old site and most of the photos don't work. I know the site isn't maintained anymore..

I'm a web developer and would love to take on the project of redoing the whole site.

Does anybody know if it would be wrong of me to do so? The site hasn't been updated in years it seems like.. But a lot of the patterns aer awesome.. They just need to be on a site that is actually usable.

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Help w. Hat Pattern: Spiral? on: November 08, 2005 10:19:55 PM

I want to make this hat http://natalie85.blogspot.com/2005/05/hippie-hat-pattern.html

But I don't understand the first part of the pattern.

"With one strand of yarn and H hook, work in spirals, using stitch marker at end of each round."

Work in spirals? I've never heard of that.. Could someone please, please explain? I wanna make this hat SO bad and it's cold weather season, so I NEED it. Cheesy
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / A nice lady donated lots of craft stuff to me. on: July 20, 2005 02:09:36 PM
I just thought I'd share this story.

If any of you have been to freecycle, it's a website where you can go on there and say "WANTED: Crochet, Knitting, craft stuff." and someone can contact you if they have these things for free to give to you. You can also make offers to people of things you want taken off your hands. Usually, you have to go pick it up if you're the WANTED person.

So, none of you really know this, but I was diagnosed with Evans Syndrome back in 2002, which is an extremely rare autoimmune disease. I've gone through chemo twice for it. NOW I'm getting told I may have Rheumatoid Arthritis. I'm jobless, and I WAS searching, but now I'm giving up becuase of my collective illnesses. At the moment, I just want to get better.

I posted something about this and about how I loved doing crafts and if there was anything they wanted to get off their hands, I'd gladly accept it. I came into correspondence with Nance, a retired lady, who said she'd look through her stuff and BRING it to me.

Today I look outside and there's a huge garbage bag full of 30 different gauges of knitting needles and crochet needles, 10 different types of yarn, 10 different kits..  I'm jsut amazed at humanity right now. Smiley

What a nice lady.
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet Single Stitch question. on: July 20, 2005 12:45:05 AM
Alright. Let's see if I can explain this properly.

I'm trying to make a book cover, using single stitch.

The thing I'm having a problem with is making the stitches all face the same way.

I chain 35, then I do the second row - everything's good, then the third row, after I turn, my stitches all face the wrong side. Is this normal? If it's not, please help me figure out how to make it right! Smiley I can't figure it out for the life of me.


9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Circular Needles on: March 03, 2005 11:14:00 PM
Hey. I know you might get this question a lot, and I haven't quite mastered the search system yet, so I sincerely apologize if any of you are frustrated by my redundant posting.

I'm a new knitter, and I've been looking at all of these neat patterns on the internet that I'd like to try knitting, however, most of them call for circulars, and all I have are straights.

Is it possible to knit something on a straight that is calling for a circular? If so, how? Smiley

Thanks so much!
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Best Button Maker on: March 03, 2005 07:17:59 PM

I don't know where to put this, I found one convo that was making suggestions on what NOT to buy..

I was wondering if anyone can help me find an affordable, easy to use, and working button maker. I am the webdesigner for a friends' band, http://www.derbyband.com, and I want to help them out by designing buttons.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Smiley
