11  yeehaw! Am I on the right track? in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by MyrnaLoy on: May 04, 2006 03:43:41 PM
I'm being ambitious and this is my first project from the book. I"m taking it very slow, stitch by stitch and I can't imagine this coming out to look like a hat. For the first few rows, I'd get to the end of the directions and it seemed like I'd have to skip a lot of stitches to join the row I just made up with its beginning. I think I've got the concept of countin gstitches down, but for the last row I counted 35 instead of 38 that I should have...

So, here is the hat folded in half:

and here it is in a wonky angle shot:

am I on the right track? It would be nice to know before I continue... I mean, if I've already screwed up I'd like to take care of it now rather than later, you know what I mean?

12  Re: I dream of Jeannie evil twin sister costume in Costumes: Discussion and Questions by MyrnaLoy on: March 26, 2006 04:41:13 PM
back in college I had a SERIOUS I dream of jeannie problem.

it was really bad, I'm kinda embarassed about it now.

My freshman year I dressed up as Jeannie's twin sister (also: Jeannie) and I made the costume myself

I wore a green sports bra and put gold trim around it. My hat was made out of an old butter tub (one of the small ones) that I put alternating stripes of mint green and green fabric around. Then I trimmed it out with the same gold trim.

I wore a striped skirt instead of Jeannie pants. you could:

a) make an a-line skirt that's really long. Measure your waist. Figure out how many stripes you want to have. Divide your waist measurement by the amount of stripes. The number you get will be the measurement for the top of the stripe. Add two or three inches. That's the bottom of your stripe. figure our how long you want it to be. Get a big piece of paper and a yardstick. Draw your first line (x). Perpendicular to that, draw your length line. Perpendicular to that draw your line that's X+3. Connect the dots... you get a big trapezoid. Cut out a bunch of those, remember to include seam allowances. Sew 'em together... The easiest way to keep the skirt up would be a draw string. tah dah! Instant Jeannie skirt. See the picture


you could wear a pair of green leggings or tights (get 'em at target or somewhere like that... green fishnets would be cool). Make a waistband and attach thin, straight strips of tuelle to the waistband in the length you want the skirt/pants to be. Attach the bottoms of the strips to your ankles. instant sorta jeannie pants.

my bad drawing of how to make a skirt:

I think I'm still waiting on a pair too, but here's what I've recieved so far (sorry I forgot who sent what.... and the names of the people... I'm forgetful!)

everyone got a make-up bag from me because I was self-conscious about my earring ability. I know I can make make-up bags though...

16  Re: REALLY COOL Scrabble bracelets in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by MyrnaLoy on: October 29, 2005 10:07:12 PM
I've noticed the tiles and stickers made for scrapbooking usually don't have the correct point value on them... 'cmon... 2 points for the use of an "A"?

The tiles themselves are hard to drill through. My husband used a drill press on a few, but then he didn't want to do the whole set... booger

so I found these "bracelet blanks" at skybluepink.com  a little dab of E6000 and the list of acceptable 6 letter words and viola!

I was thinking of selling them based on point value (hee hee)

this is what i made sugargliders101. Two mooninite stuffies, and the big yellow thing is the quad laser, because noone can resist the quad laser.

I felt the quad laser part was a little lame, so I threw in some marble magnets

everyone is getting such cute monkeys!

while she wasn't part of the swap, i wanted to share the monkey I made for my friend.

Betty Lou isn't looking at you funny, she actually has a very lazy eye. That doesn't stop her though, she loves to dance to bluegrass music.
