1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My small knitted make-up bag on: September 18, 2012 02:14:41 PM
I found the pattern on ravelry and was really easy and quick to whip up, took me about a day (but that's due to me taking coffee breaks...lots of coffee breaks)

it measure about 5-6 inches across and uses a moss stitch and stockinette with some eyelets Smiley

I think next time to add more structure I'll knit it up double stranded and line it with a pretty fabric...
or I could just line this one up with something pretty and add a bit of structure.

That's awesome!  I think my first knitted project were a pair of mittens...I like to jump head first into things.

You should try alternating the patterns in which you purl & knit.  Easiest texture I can think of is a moss stitch scarf, it's an interesting texture and  SO easy, you don't even need a pattern to create a scarf. 

have you tried requesting an invite to ravelry.com?
You can search for patterns using their search engine and it'll pull up knit or crochet patterns, free or purchased ones and narrow it down to the size of item, type of item, type of yarn, needle size and difficulty!

thanks guys!

it is kind of sick how you can stick an owl on just about anything.
I need to find something else to obsess over, but I HIGHLY doubt that will happen for awhile...
Maybe I should go...blue footed booby crazy.

It took me awhile to figure out how to make the fur stick up and look all crazy like...took me a few hours to figure it out, but when i did it made things a whole lot easier
7  COOKING / Dessert / Bob the Builder & Elmo sugar cookies on: September 10, 2012 12:25:29 PM
Back in May I made these cookies for my son & my nephew's birthday party.  It was my first time decorating cookies and working with royal frosting, but they came out pretty well I think.

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / newbie in sewing: reconstructing question on: September 09, 2012 07:04:39 PM
So I have this AWESOME shirt dress that I bought at forever 21 for $2.
As soon as I brought it home, I realized it was wayyy to big for a medium.  there's about 1 inch of extra room across the shoulders and 3 extra inches from the ribs and 2 inches extra around the under arms.

There's pockets on the front, which I kind of like, but I'm thinking of moving them else where.
It's almost a military style shirt dress.
What drives me crazy is the box pleat on the back.
AND there's too many buttons...15 to be exact.

I like to wear things with belts but if I wear this with any sort of belt at all, it poofs out and I look like a hunch back and there's too much fabric that gathers up and poofs up  quite a bit...

Would the best thing be to deconstruct the whole thing??
If there wasn't a box pleat, it wouldn't be such an issue ;\
