1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: Purses on HGTV on: October 23, 2004 08:04:29 PM
I saw the show with the "Jordy like" purse and I could swear the girl's name was Jordan or Jordy so I was thinking that was her the whole time I was watching it.  Jordy, was that you?  It's a great show!
2  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: dpns on Umbilical Cord Baby Hat on: September 11, 2004 05:20:46 PM
It's me again, I forgot to tell you, since you said you don't own any double points, when you do buy some, the metal ones are very slippery so I'd recommend bamboo or casien.  You might also find some at a thrift store in the craft section.  Yes, if you just keep knitting in the round you will have an endless tube.  I'm sure a cat would like it!

Hi! Don't let the double points scare you.  They are really easy to use.  Just knit onto a dbl pt from your circular.  When one gets several stitches, grab another double and fill it.  Just be careful not to let your stitches slip off the ends.  The needles are just holding your stitches like the cord on your circular only now you can decrease.  Good luck!  I taught myself to knit with a hat pattern similar to this.

I'm trying the kool aid soon but just wanted you to know you can order very good dye from www.dharmatrading.com.  They have an awesome catalog and it tells you everything you need for dying and how to do it.  You need a different kind of dye for wool and silk than for cotton.  Their colors are amazing and blah blah blah...check it out. They've never disapointed me!

THis is a reply to Cofehawse:
On that Anthro. cardigan, I assume you want to make the little ruffles going down the front?  If you have a zig zag stitch on your machine you can do it.  Even the simplest machine has one.  Anyway, Cut a strip of t-shirt fabric (jersey) and pull it while sewing down the edge with a zig zag stitch.  By pulling it you will stretch it out and give it like what's called a "lettuce edge".  then do the other side.  You will want to practice on this, stretchy stuff can be a pain but it's also forgiving and once you sew it to whatever, it'll look great.  After you have made your "ruffle" you can sew it down to whatever you want.  Would look cute sewn around the top of a t or several strips sewn down the front of a t close together. HOpe this helps, I can't post a tut, just got my wisdom teeth xtracted  so am only sitting, not sewing!

Garbage, I looked at your pics on photobucket and am wondering did you use the pics from the book and sew them to fabric to make that inside pocket and sides, etc? Or did you scan it to fabric or is it old fabric? Questions questions questions! Your bbags are awesome!

So COOL! I luv that! I have a super soft super huge a&f button down, orange check that I just can't part with so now I'll try this.  Pics soon.  Thanks for the inspiration and you're right, chop it, sew it, if it doesn't work it goes in the "didn't work" pile that my friends dig thru and they say, what is this? and I say, some piece of crap that didn't work!

You Rock!  I just got 2 years of Budget LIving for 5.99 on eBay.  I feel like I should pay this website for all the great stuff I learn on here.  Hey, I guess that's part of budget living? Thanks for the 411! Shocked

Just follow the directions they give.  Stir as long as they say.  You may have a failure or two before you get the recipe down. Get all your supplies and containers ready before you start. As they say, you can add more water or less for the thickness.  Go for it! you can always throw it out!  I just had a batch turn out very runny because I added honey to it.  I was about to pour it down the drain but my mother-in-law loved it and took the whole jar.

ok, here's my texas bee keeper's hand cream recipe.  maybe you can get this to work.  It's thick and creamy when cooled.

Melt slowly, 2 oz. beeswax and 6 oz mineral oil

While this is melting:
heat 8 oz distilled water to 160 deg.F, add 2 teaspoons Borax.

After wax has melted into oil, slowly pour it into the water.  It will immediately turn white.  Stir by hand slowly for 5 minutes.  Pour into containers.
I have changed this and don't use mineral oil anymore since I found out it is petroleum based but you can make a batch and see how you like it.  Add essential oils at the end when stirring.  1 recipe makes about 32 oz.  You'll have to convert, I never picked up the metric thing.
HOpe this helps you! viva france! loved my visit there!
