1  Yay! Finished! in Knitalongs by Delziela on: March 18, 2006 06:19:08 PM
I finished this earlier this week, but I we were getting a new camera so I thought I might as well wait... It was knit with two strands of simply soft.

a little wonky at the top

It was a little bit too short, so I just picked up the stitches at the bottom because I kind of liked the way the cast-off edge looked between the two rows of ribbing.

and that's my new pin I got at the flea market today. I love this, I'm definitely going to make myself another one. Maybe worsted. Even though it's short, I still felt strange knitting a bulky almost-sweater over spring break...  Grin

Ok. This is what I want to do.

That's Judy Garland in one of her movies, "Girl Crazy". This is the only picture that I found online, and it is very cool when she is dancing in it because it is very flowy. I do know that it is of a creme underskirt with a dark tulle type netting onver the top. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do with the black swirlies on the front?

Wahey, my post inspired some creativity! (obviously not mine, as I haven't bothered to start the skirt yet no money = no lace & no fabric = no skirt.)

Having read how you made yours, and how another user explained it on my thread, I'm guessing that this is how it works out (pretty much) - I'm not very good at visualising things.

Though I was slightly confused when you said you 'fitted' the elastic - did you do it after you had sewn the two ends together? I would have assumed that you stitched a little sort of 'casing' for the elastic to pass through, pulled the elastic through it to ruffle the skirt, and sewed the two ends together.

Damn me for not understanding supposedly simple things.

My walmart has tons of plaid fabric in the one doller per yard section, it may not be exactly what you want, but it would be fairly cheap.

4  Furniture help? in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by Delziela on: May 15, 2005 06:33:32 PM
Mkay, I bought this cute little antique cupboard the other day at a rummage sale.

Heres my problem: top ickyness

I thought about replaceing it with marble top, but thats too expensive. I dont want any repair done, I want to completely redo the whole top.

Wow. I said top alot huh? Anyone have any ideas?

5  Weird Little People.... in What the heck can I do with THIS? by Delziela on: May 14, 2005 04:13:00 PM
I have a bunch of these little guys laying around:

I hope you can see them ok.

About the little guys:

-They were part of a school project
-They are papir mache
- I have resisted my desire to throw them away for a reson which I cannot fathom
-Limited time + a project I dont care about + Mass production= Poorly made

I know they are tacky and kind of a hopeless case, but, If anyone has any type of strange idea, Im willing to try it.
