1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Anyone know how to resize a pattern? on: February 05, 2012 04:35:24 PM
I wasn't really sure how to title this but I found an awesome pattern on ravelry that I made. They are called Springtime Coasters by Doni Speiglehttp: www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/springtime-coasters  I made them and they look so awesome and I thought it would be cute to make potholders/hotpads with the same design but bigger (maybe 7-8 inch diameter) but seeing as how I taught myself to crochet only a few months ago I am beyond lost when it comes to adapting a pattern to make it larger. I honestly don't even know if you can do such a thing but I thought I'd ask.

If anyone is feeling bored and would like to try and explain to me a possible way to do this, or be completely awesome and rework the pattern I would really appreciate it!! TIA!!  Grin

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Hand Puppet Pattern? Does it exist? Help? on: August 04, 2010 09:28:56 PM
Hey everyone,

I am currently in school to become a teacher. I have decided to start making things to be used in my classroom. I really like these http://catalog.teachingsupplystore.com/police_officer_puppet-p-154436.html types of puppets, however, at sixteen dollars a piece, they could add up really fast!

I don't think these would be too difficult to make, the only thing that has me stumped is the face. The body and neck are basically a long tube and the arms/hands could be freehand and sewn on. Then just decorate accordingly.

I think the only part stumping me is the mouth...

Are there any patterns out there for these? If not do you have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Diaper Cake Question??? on: May 09, 2010 10:12:00 PM
Hi all,

My cousin is pregnant and I would love to do a diaper cake like I always do, but she is using cloth diapers. I am not really sure now what to do. I plan on making her a bunch of stuff but I really wanted to make a diaper cake and she already has the cloth diapers. I was thinking maybe I could roll up some onsies and bibs and such that I am making and have filler stuff in the middle so it can still get big and tall but that would mean she would have to take it all completely apart just to see everything, which I don't know if I like because I would love the see her reaction to everything but I wouldn't want her to have to undo everything at the baby shower either... Sad Any ideas?

6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / My first cricut creation! Pull Out/Flower Pot type card (Santa) on: December 01, 2009 10:26:25 PM
So just yesterday I saw these type cards and thought they were just brilliant, so I decided to give it a try. I'm new to cricut and this is actually my first real card (that's finished, I have several other works in progress...)

The Santa is from Doodlecharms. I did not use Design Studio or a gypsy. I just cut out two shadows (6 inches). Then the varying pieces of santas face in the corresponding colors. Then I glued the "flesh" santa onto one of the blackouts. Then cut off the hat area and applied all the extra pieces to finish him off. I then glued the edges only of the two shadow pieces. Then I fit a small piece of black cardstock in the "pocket" then sandwiched it between the two hat pieces and glued them together. Then cut a small white pices of card stock with fancy scissors and viola! Oh and I pop doted the mustache and then on top of those pop dots I pop dotted the nose. I can't wait to do this again, but I think I'll wait until I get DS because I hate having to cut all the pieces just for one piece in one color... And next time I'm going to emboss the beard and mustache with D'vine swirls...

The cute little stamp on the inside came free when I ordered the face stamps from peachykeen and it is just too stinkin adorable!!

Thanks for looking!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How much fabric for a chunky little girl (age 7)?? on: November 17, 2009 08:29:33 PM
So I will be making the dresses for my flower girl and bridesmaids for my wedding and the flower girl is a chunky little 6 year old, but she will be 7 when I get married, a year from now, however, I found the PERFECT fabric on sale and I was wondering how many yards you thought I would need to make a dress similar to this

Just with less ruffles (maybe further down, idk those ruffles just seem too high...) Maybe no ruffles at all, I'm new to clothing (been sewing since I was 8 but haven't sewed clothes before!  Roll Eyes  Anyways I'm starting to think that a dress with the same type of top but goes straight down then use the fabric from my bridesmaid dresses to make the little tie...
Any ideas would be great! Thanks for any and all help!! Grin

I am thinking I'll probably get three yards to be on the safe side, I know I only need four yards for my bridesmaids, so I think three should be plenty. Do you agree?
8  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / What do you do for a living? on: November 01, 2009 01:40:14 PM
Sorry if this is in the wrong spot, but it is craft related...

*~* edited to change description, I have found my major and it is Education, but not for crafty reasons, I really do enjoy teaching as I have found through my field experience, but I am going to leave this thread asking the questions below, so hopefully one day someone else will find all the replies useful as well!! Smiley *~*

What is it that you do for a living? Is it something crafty? If you don't mind could you share how much you bring in? Do you know of any other careers that could involve being crafty??
9  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / help with colors please!! on: October 29, 2009 09:53:40 PM
So my cousin and best friend and maid of honor (all one person) is getting married in January, but having the ceremony in February (long story), so I would love to make her a quilt by January but it's okay it if takes me till feb.

Anyways she LOVES purple, but her fiance thinks the color is horrid. I'm not sure what his favorite color is, but I was wanting to know what yall thought was a good color combination (I'm thinking two colors (like blue and brown, green and brown, etc.)) for a newly married couple that both would enjoy.

You know like when you use neutral colors for babies, something like that, thanks for any help!!
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Cheapest Wedding Favor Ideas... on: October 20, 2009 09:28:53 AM
ok we all know we would LOVE to be able to give out fabulous favors but honestly they are a waste of money and ultimately usually always consists of candy (at least around here). So my question to you is what do you think would be the cheapest (yet not tacky) wedding favor for around 100-150 people...


Oh and please state about how much you would think it would cost to do. Thanks bunches!!
