Very cool. Kind of like stained glass! Did you use scrap fabric for between the green too, or is it bias/hem tape or something?

Oh wow, that's really amazing. You've renewed my quilting patience!

Thank you so much! So I still cut the rest of the pieces the same, right? Or would they not line up right?

Hello all, if anybody could help me with this dilemma I would really appreciate it. I've got some odd measurements on my body, and it's making dress-sewing pretty much impossible. I'm a 41-34-40, and the big gap between my bust and hips always looks horrible when I make dresses. Yesterday I tried cutting out different pattern pieces in different sizes (bigger up top, smaller down low) but the finished product still made me look frumpy and much larger than I actually am, even after taking it in at the sides.

The biggest problem seems to be that it fits on my bust, but then everything below that is very baggy and makes me look pregnant (good news for my pregnant sister, who gets the dress, but bad news for me). How should I adjust my patterns so I don't keep having this problem?

I totally have a dress made from the same material as the second one. It's super cute and soft! I think you should definitely wear it more.

This is awesome! I had a canopy on my bed last year, but it was just a pair of curtains tied to the support beams attached to my loft bed, with a sheet on top. This looks a lot classier, and I like the finishing touch of the top strip of fabric.

I made something like this today thanks to your post. It's an old bath towel for the batting and a single piece of fabric on top, but I quilted it down in diamonds/stars along the pattern of the fabric. Thanks for the idea! I have long wanted a rug but I'm so picky about the texture on my feet, and this was perfect.
8  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Amigurumi Kitten Ears? on: June 09, 2011 04:41:49 PM
So I'm crocheting my friends' cats using a pattern I found online. I'm having a little trouble understanding what it's asking for when it comes to the ears. It says:

4:  For left ear, Ch3, 2hdc in next st, sc in next st, sl st in last st.  Sc evenly all around the ear with a
(sc, dc, ch1, sl st in top of dc, dc, sc)  in the ear tip. Do not join to beginning ch3, leave a long tail to
sew to the head.
4: For right ear, sl st in first st, sc in next st, 2hdc in next st, dc in last st.  Sc evenly all around the ear
with a (sc, dc, ch1, sl st in top of dc, dc, sc)  in the ear tip. Do not join to the first sl st, leave a long tail
to sew to the head

What exactly is it calling for in the parentheses there? Here's the link to the whole pattern, if you need it. Thanks for your help.

Oh my God, I totally have the same fabric from the third top. It was a sheet I found at Goodwill...must have been popular back in the day?

Beautiful--what did you use to fill in the color of the outline?
