1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / A Nautiloid Hat? How could that happen? on: June 16, 2011 03:46:25 PM
I am trying to make a nautiloid (a spiral shaped sea creature) hat.

I can manage the part to affix the nautiloid onto, but I am at a loss at the hat. I want it to be big and crazy (like Princess Beatrice hat).

I have bolt of tulle, which I thought would work to sculpt a spiral shape. But I have a block.

Any ideas? I'd love to get feedback and ideas. And I would be greatly indebted! Thanks in advance.
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Embroidery near the edge on: August 05, 2009 11:38:37 PM
I have run into a little trouble. The answer seems to obvious, but I have yet to come across it.

What is the best way to embroidery near the edge of your fabric? Just do it without a hoop? Is the best way for your fabric made any larger and cut down? And if that's not possible, what is the best way to embroider in areas that are un-hoopable? Or are there much smaller hoops I am missing?

Thanks so much.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Wrap Question on: December 04, 2005 04:39:03 PM
I have a question for anyone who has completed or knows anything this pattern, or well anyone who knows! Cheesy http://flor.trix.net/amelia1.htm This is the hat, but the question is a wrap/short row question.

I know how to wrap and turn, but most instructions begin with stitches still on your left needle. I have none. I have the right amount of stitches according to the pattern, and I followed it exactly. There should be 37 stitches, and I have that. But no stitches on the left to be worked.

For Row 2: Inc 1 (i.e. K1 then knit into back of the same stitch), *P2, K2* 8 times, P2, W&T.

So I did just that, and when I purl those last 2, the row is done! How do I do a W&T with no stitch there? Do I just wrap the last purl stitch?

Is that confusing?  Cheesy

Thanks so much, crafters!
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Any suggestions? on: August 27, 2005 11:43:14 PM
I live in an old apartment with few electrical outlets. One by my desk in particular has wires everywhere--music, printer, phone, computer, etc.

Any suggestions on hiding a mess of wires running about a foot in an empty space of the wall? I cannot put furniture over it because it would run into my dining room chairs (hey, gotta maximize space!).

Have you had this problem and solved it? Housed the madness somehow?

5  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / How did you come up with your brand name? on: August 07, 2005 06:41:29 PM
I am at a crossroads, and I thought hearing how others came to their name might offer me some inspiration. Maybe give me a new focus or place to restart. So how what is the story behind your name and how did it come to you?

Thanks, craftsters!
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Higher Capacity Set ups on: August 07, 2005 05:00:58 PM
I wondered if anyone had bought or made equipment to accomodate a home press but with higher capacities. I have limited space in an urban apartment, and I have limited carpentry skills. But I am interested in upgrading.

Has anyone used or bought anything like this? Or found one without the supplies and just the equipment?

How do you print on a larger scale?

7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Use of images? on: August 06, 2005 09:51:57 PM
I had a question about images used. I have people interested in buying shirts, but I was not sure how copyrights play into this. At what time does an image become mine (after photoshopping, tweaking and altering)?

I am guessing the object makes a different. If I took a Mick Jagger photo and messed around with it to make my own screen, it would still be illegal to sell his likeness correct (unless it was a parody)? No matter what I did?

What if I find a royalty free apple photo and make my own screen? What if it is not royalty free?

Last question: Clip Art. If I used a clip art as a starting point, altered it, etc. Could I use this?

I am guessing my best bet would be to start from scratch, but I do not know a lot about graphic design.

Thanks for your help!
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / How do you print your image? On what? on: July 17, 2005 08:45:07 PM
I am new to this, and I have read most of the threads and links. But I was not clear on what I should use to print the images I want to use out. Should I use transparencies? Plain printer paper? Cardstock?

Is it better to use a ink jet or laser printer? Or should I skip it all and go to a copy shop? I read about the vegetable oil method as a possibility. Any experiences with this?

I plan on using the emulsifier method. Smiley

Thanks for yout help!
