1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Jean Tabs? on: June 29, 2007 09:42:06 AM
I'm actually not exactly sure what they're called.  But I was wondering if anybody knew if you could buy those tab, button like things that you see on jeans.  They're usually located on the corners of the front pockets to prevent ripping (I think). I've never seen them in the stores before though, so I was wondering if you could actually buy them.  Does anybody know what they're really called?  Thanks!!!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cabled Sweater in Taupe! on: January 06, 2007 05:22:38 PM
So this is my first sweater ever completed!  I've done a ton of hats/scarfs, and started quite a few sweaters, cardigans, etc., but I have a nasty habit of never finishing them.  I guess the rather large gauge on this one helped a lot! 

Here she be, ladies and gents. 

It is the originally named:  Sweater with Cable Patterns, from Rebecca 28.  Sadly, this is the only picture I have of this sweater as I left it at home, and I am now miles away at college.   Cry
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Red Coating Fabric!!! on: October 01, 2006 02:35:50 AM
I want to make a red coat, as in a winter coat, that is knee length.  Does anyone know of fabric stores online that has such a fabric.  I have checked out fashionfabricsclub.com already, fyi. 
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Pinstripe Pants on: January 23, 2006 07:26:23 PM
I have made a pair of pants.  A pair of pinstripe pants, that is.  

The fabric is a stretchy wool.  I bought it a while ago, however, so I could not tell you what the fabric exactly is.  

They're made from a Burda pattern, #8698.  I altered them only slightly to resemble a pair of anthropologie pants that are no longer advertised on the website.  They really don't look very similar at all... but I love them anyway.  And you probably will never know the difference.   Grin

Back detail

Pocket detail

The front, which, in this picture, looks like the back.  Ha ha... ha

The long view.  Mind the wet spot; I was doing dishes before taking photos.  

Looking back at the project, I wish that I'd used a pattern that was a trouser pant instead of bootcut, as these ones are, because the pinstripe looks a bit silly as bootcut.  Oh well... live and learn.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Houndstooth Skirt... How Romantic! on: January 18, 2006 09:26:26 PM
Here is a skirt I made using Simplicity 5914.

It's a very simple skirt, and I know most of you crafters out there don't use patterns... but I'm still with them!  I like them.  Haha.

Here is the link to the pattern http://www.simplicity.com/dv1_v4.cfm?design=5914

And here are the pics:




6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Knitted Cable Buckle Bag from Rowan Magazine!!!! (img heavy) on: January 02, 2006 11:40:05 PM
woot!  Grin
So I finally finished my first non scarf/hat knitted project and I just LOVE her.  Yes, my purse is a her, just like cars. 

So here are some photos!

Sitting on the rocking chair, warming her backside by the fireplace...

A closer view

The annoying strap that was cable after cable after cable

The flappity-flap-flap

And her guts

So much hand-sewing involved, but I'm quite impressed with my linking the world of knitting to the world of sewing.  Oh yeah.
