1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Electric Blue Dancing Dress on: April 20, 2009 11:53:54 AM

I spent a big portion of saturday sewing and fitting this dress, as I was supposed to go clubbing with a friend that night. She ended up canceling, but the dress turned out awesome.
I poked myself with pins so many times, it's not even funny. Well maybe it's a little funny. At least I didn't bleed on anything.
I started out with 4 rectangles like in the text tute for the green mini dress but my ribs are smaller than my hips so there was a lot of fitting involved and I did the top/sleeves way different, too.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Blue shirt drafted by me on: March 11, 2009 09:08:03 AM
I drafted this pattern because my daughter has really long arms for her age I guess. All her shirts are turning into 3/4 length sleeved ones.

The seam running across her chest is also across the back. I think next time, I'll leave the back plain. the neck edge, sleeve edges and the hem are unfinished. I'll put the shirt through the laundry a couple of times to see how it holds up.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Blue Bonnet- my own pattern on: March 04, 2009 08:50:27 AM
This fits me perfectly and it's the perfect blue. I love it.

Miters are my new best friends.

The pattern is on my blog if you want it.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Teal Handwarmers on: February 13, 2009 12:19:39 PM

I made these handwarmers to keep warm while i'm sewing in my sewing room, which is in the basement. The yarn is red heart soft and the pattern is Toasty by Leslie Friend.

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Rick Rack scarf on: February 13, 2009 12:11:42 PM
I looove rick rack. And I love to crochet. Thus the green rick rack scarf is born:

Made with bulky yarn from a mill ends bag from walmart in the car on the way to Minneapolis last year.
6  UNITED STATES / Minnesota / I'm going to be in Minneapolis this September! Where should I go? on: October 01, 2007 09:16:43 PM
I'm driving from winnipeg to check out your craft stores and ikea, too.
What do you recommend? I'll definitely be checking out SR Harris Fabrics.

Also, does any one have any suggestions for a really fun dance club in the bloomington area? Anyone want to come dancing with my friend and I on saturday?
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Hortense the houndstooth hippo (3 pics) on: March 09, 2007 01:47:42 PM
I love hippos! They are actually graceful in water, but if you get between them and their water hole, you better watch out!
I made this for my daughter for her 1st birthday. The pattern is from 1973, and it was missing all the alligator pieces, but I only wanted it for the hippo, anyways.
I've never made a stuffed animal before and boy were those seams tricky at places!

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / looking for a pattern on: March 07, 2007 12:25:07 PM
I love this dress from the inspiration page on the amy butler site:
Does anyone know of a pattern I could use to make it?  Here's another view:
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I got a pattern making kit for 3$!!! on: May 26, 2006 05:25:01 PM
I went to a church rummage sale and found the most awesome thing ever!  4 pattern making kits for 3$!  It came with a curved plastic designing stylus for tracing the hip and crotch curves. The 4 kits are for dress making, kids clothes, mens shirts and one for pants. I'm so excited to try and design my own patterns exactly my size! I think I'm going to faint....lol
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Smart Knitters! Translation needed please! on: April 07, 2006 08:56:40 AM
I've never worked with a cable chart before or any chart, really.  I'm making this cute cabled vest for my sister for her birthday and I'm flamboozled as to how to read the chart!  I can do cables if it's written out in plain English, though. I know the middle 3 rows are just knitting, it's the first and last ones that are confusing me.
Would one of the clever knitters on craftster help please?
The chart is here:
It's a pdf file.
Thank you so much if you can help!
