41  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Knit-Out 2005 on: August 09, 2005 06:52:34 AM
Hi knitters/crocheters (is that a word?)!

So I was told about this event called the "Knit Out" where the Craft Yarn Council of America takes over a city and offers demos, lessons, fashion shows, new patterns, etc. I checked out the website and saw that they're coming to NYC in October. I've never knitted before but would like to give it a shot. Has anyone ever been to any of these events? Are the lessons thorough or is it more like quick tips? I'm going to check it out regardless, but wanted to hear some first-hand experience.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about: http://www.knit-out.com/
42  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Jungle print reversible slouchy bag!! Rrraow! on: July 31, 2005 06:34:36 PM
So I had these 2 wraparound skirts I made when I was 14, so obviously they don't fit anymore (well they fit, but now they were more like hot shorts without the shorts part). I loved the fabric, so I decided to embelish them and sew them back to back to make a reversible bag. Now to see if it holds up with my daily use....

Please comment. Thanks for looking!
43  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Copyright laws on reconstructing clothing?? Share your knowledge Crafties! on: July 26, 2005 11:48:16 AM
Hi. I did a search for this topic but found nothing or wasn't wording it right so here it is:

When making reconstructed clothing to sell, are there any copyright laws on cutting up/majorly altering someone else's original design (like Levis for example)? Is it best to find some generic brand (if there is such a thing)? Any knowledge would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
44  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / posting jewelry for the first time - please comment - image heavy on: June 14, 2005 07:12:48 PM
so here's some jewelry i've made in the past few months. as you can see, some are more complex than others - but sometimes simpler can be better...please let me know what you think of all of them!

here's a pair of earrings i made for my mom for her bday (she's a beachy kinda gal)

i made this out of an old broken chain and this cute tin heart

these were inspired by artasanoutlet - i made them over the weekend

45  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Alice in Bagland on: June 11, 2005 11:10:45 AM
So here's the very first embroidery i ever did. I found this old cross-stitch book called Alice in Stitches and made a pattern for embroidery. To make a long story short, i finished my masterpiece and then promptly ruined the fun red bag that i had embroidered on (don't ask). So now i've cut out the part that Alice was on and am now trying to make it work as a patch on another (not as cool) bag. Right now everything is just kinda pinned down but i don't feel like it's looking right. Please share your ideas!

46  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Birthday Hanky with "S" on: June 11, 2005 10:57:46 AM
So I used a mix of Sublime's sparrow and an "S" I made up for this birthday gift for my friend Miss Stephanie. I think she'll like it (she's very girlie). Anyway, I gave it a good ironing, but as you can see, the hoop imprint is still there. Should I soak it in some water? I'm nervous to throw it in a washing machine because of the stitching. The fabric is a fairly strong linen/cotton. Thanks for looking!

47  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Tarot Card Table on: June 11, 2005 10:41:02 AM
hello craft-babies! Here's an ugly coffe table (i don't have "before" pics but take my word for it) that I transformed using "the cards." Very easy: Painted said table black. Glued down layer of newspaper (just for added pattern to show between cards) then taped down cards in chosen pattern and used some clear matte-medium brushed over the top with an old credit card (so no brush marks would show). Sorry if pics are a little blurry - i don't have the steadiest hand!

48  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Argyle cushion set on: June 11, 2005 10:23:16 AM
ok here's a set of argyle-inspired cushions that i made to go with my 50's style table. there really was nothing to it: i just ripped the country-home fabric off some existing cushions and sewed solid fabric on pillow-case style. Then i cut diamonds off other fabric and hand-sewed them on with a running stitch of visible contrasting thread. Oh, and of course, don't forget little ties to hold the cushions onto the chairs.

any thoughts or suggestions of further "accessories"? Thanks for looking!
