1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / How do you finish a fabric ATC on: October 03, 2011 04:42:29 PM
How do you finish fabric ATCs?  Cut them and affix to front of stiff surface?  Sew them into a little pouch with the stiff surface inside?  Just cut larger than the card and affix it to the back after folding it over the edges?  I'd appreciate any ideas....
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: slouchy squishy beehive hat on: September 20, 2011 04:10:04 PM
I think I knitted one like this from a free pattern I found on the interwebs years ago.  I gifted it, and it was well appreciated!  I think I even used a similar yarn - purply heather color.

I do like it!  I agree with a previous poster - what is the pattern?

Well, your swap partner is one lucky person.  You did a beautiful job with the stitching, not to mention your design and research!

Oh my - this one must have taken a good bit of time to complete!  I love bullion stitches - I wish the designer had made better use of them, though.  Random bullion stitches aren't as awesome as ones arranged for a purpose (flower or just about any shape).

My first ATC - embroidered scarecrow on unbleached cotton for a Halloween swap.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: knitting with arthritis :( on: September 14, 2011 05:11:47 PM
I use a style of knitting that involves moving my hands, rather than my wrists, and this helps with my arthritis and lessens wrist strain.  It's hard to describe, but it's how my grandmother taught me to knit.  It's a bit slower than folks with all the twisty wrist movements, but it works good for me.
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: Need help figuring out what stitches to use for embroidery project on: September 14, 2011 05:08:28 PM
Satin stitch would generally use several strands of the floss, depending on the thread count (density/inch) of the fabric.  You want it to be full coverage, and even edged.  You might consider putting a stem stitch edging around the leaves if your edges are a bit raggedy. 
9  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Thousands of crayons?? on: September 10, 2011 04:15:05 PM
I like the idea of the batik with crayons, but think that melting all the colors at once would end up with having to reheat them over and over (I paint slow).  Hmmm.  Wish you could just color with them on the fabric and then dye/iron.

Very cool!  I don't have any kids I'm knitting for right now, but will probably bookmark the pattern anyway, so when I do I can find it.
