1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Maaaaagic Yarn (Not really.. It's just beautiful, though) on: December 09, 2014 11:27:50 AM

Seriously, though, this is the kind of thing that I'd get just to hold it in my hands with wide, shiny eyes of wonder, going "waaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh~~~~~"  Every 3 minutes...   I wouldn't even know the first thing to do with this kind of yarn.

What would you do with it?
2  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / This is Aurura on: December 03, 2014 01:45:16 PM
I'm new here (though I've visited Craftster before!).  I crochet and am new at sewing.  
It's winter time, and I'm now into my crocheting projects.  This time around, I figured that it would be sweet to find a crocheting/sewing pen pal.

I'm 40 (17 in my brainz).
I'm happily married and have 3 kids (a young adult, a teen and a toddler!)
I'm usually quite a procrastinator about my projects, but I feel that having a pen-pal who's also crocheting/sewing their own things would be a great motivation and inspiration.

I'm interested in crocheting accessories, household items, and just artsy things.  I also like the idea of sewing household items and cute stuff just to have around.  I love the "mori girl" style of clothing.  I aspire to learn how to create clothing of such design.

...aaaand that's about it!  I would truly love to find a suitable pen-pal...  You don't have to like the same things I do or anything.  Just post back here and lemme know if you'd like to be my pen-pal!  *^_^*  

Nice to meet you all.

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / A Winter Cowl on: December 03, 2014 01:41:03 PM
I am currently working on a winter cowl.  I am about 1/3 done with it - the pattern requires a lot or working!  

1/3 of the Cowl is already done... I really like this pattern, but it's quite a challenge for me!

And this is one of the biggest reasons why.  To make the crocheting as fine as possible with this particular yarn, I've had to unravel the entire skein from itself and tie the ends together!

This is the yarn I'm using for this cowl.  I bought four of then in a dollar bin at a local store called Big Lots!.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Needing Help on a Simple "Mori Girl" - Styled Skirt Design on: December 02, 2014 04:05:30 PM
So here's a sketch of kinda what I had in my mind:

The open part should be a little bit more to the right side than it is in the sketch.
There will also be a lacy trim on the bottom hem of the skirt and on the hem of the ruffled fabric part - I just hadn't drawn it here on this original sketch.

But here's another sketch of what I mean:

And here is also a pic the the three fabrics I intend to use.  Quirky tastes, I know:

My first question is - What's the best way to sew the ruffled fabric onto the inner one, that will make it have a roundish, semi-poofy edge just before the lace (as the sketch shows) without it sticking out too far form the skirt body itself?

And my second is -  Is there a way to make the skirt flowy working with fabric that's only 68" in width?  (I'm about a 42" waist, if that helps)

Any thoughts?
