T-shirts are cool! Iron-on transfers are greeeeat!  Cheesy
I was thinking about your 'secret' technique... and started wondering if you had tried Adobe Streamline...? If not I highly reccommend it!! It's a fab little program.  It's not very expensive... or perhaps if you ask around you might be able to borrow it off someone who has it... like, for a short trial period... or even a long trial period...  
Anyway, I thought I'd show you an example of what my antique version of this little beauty can do, so here! I did these with 5 levels/colours to make them simple, but you can choose how many you want to use...
(Edited to show before/after)



Oh, I almost forgot... It also turns your image into a vector image!!!! So you can blow it up as big as you want and edit it in Illustrator/Freehand or whatever (compatible) program you use. So much easier than using Photoshop for editing.
...and no, I don't work for Adobe... Wink

And about the time/hardwork thing... You start the program, open a pre-saved TIFF version of your image, choose how many colours you want, hit APPLE+R and watch the screen..... If you're not happy, undo, re-set colours and try again. It's so easy it almost feels like cheating. Cheesy

Thanks all! Ok, so tassels... I'm no yarn expert, (and my crochet terminology in English sucks...) but the yarn I used was 100% wool and really soft and fluffy anyway, and then I made the tassels extra thick, like this: (with plenty of yarn, not just the one string...)

And, I started with a loooong chained string as long as I wanted the scarf. The rest I really wouldn't be able to write down in any way that would make any sense, (I'm more of a 'come here 'n I'll show you' kinda gal...) so if anyone else would like to, feel free!!  Cheesy

23  My first proper handbag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by scandibird on: January 26, 2004 05:36:33 AM
So I had to try Jordy's fab tutorial like everyone else, and this is what it resulted in. It's quite small (ca 11x14 cm) so probably good for glamorous nights out...  Smiley
I've had a photocopy of the pattern on the front lying around for years, and finally got a chance to use it for something... Traced it and machine embroidered it.  Made the strap differently, with two strips of fabric and interfacing sewn together and turned inside out, then embellished with pink seams. Might attach a snap for closing later as it's 'bulging' a bit.

ETA: The lining isn't as red as it looks, it's more purplish...

24  3 more little purses in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by scandibird on: January 25, 2004 08:38:50 AM
So here's 3 more. Same size as the other little one I posted earlier... Will try to sell them, but if it doesn't happen at least I've got a purse for every possible occasion...  Smiley

25  magazine vases... in Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions by scandibird on: January 25, 2004 01:48:14 AM
Was wandering around town yesterday and saw these in a shop window. Thought I had to share... They're made out of folded magazine pages (ca 1/2 cm wide) and glued together. Paper isn't really my thing, so not sure just how I'd go about it, but I'm sure you clever people would have no problems recreating this...  Wink

26  one little purse... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by scandibird on: January 23, 2004 11:19:59 AM
I am a felting freak and make blankets, scarves,  mittens, hot water bottle covers, cushions, hats etc etc... Once in a while they (the old sweaters) go reeeaally thick and then I make handbags and purses out of them (no need for interfacing!) Here's one I made earlier! Kinda Valentiney come to think of it...

27  super easy scarf! in Crochet: Completed Projects by scandibird on: January 22, 2004 08:43:49 AM
Me again.., thought I'd share the easiest and quickest scarf I've ever made. It's done lengthways with double crochet ( ...I think you call it), to get the stripes to go in that direction.  Used a no. 9 hook and some chunky soft wool. What took the longest was the tassels!
So even if all you know is one type of stitch (...) you can still create something comfy and useful!

28  In yer face purse in Knitting: Completed Projects by scandibird on: January 22, 2004 05:34:55 AM
So... this is my first post... I've (re)started crochet lately and am completely addicted. Mostly thanks to the inspiration I've gotten from admiring you people from afar for a few months!! Someone on here mentioned Photobucket (thank you!) so I registered and voila! So easy and so quick and here's my first contribution:

Hi all! have been using and abusing your creativity for months now, so I thought it was time to introduce myself. Made my digi cam (!) cover last night in a mad-craft-attack around midnight... you know the one.. So here it is. With legs, no nose and wonky ears.
ETA: it was looking so pathetic I finished it..
