1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: iPod Cozies on: May 13, 2004 08:37:59 AM
How cute!  I felted a flask cover as well. It works great because I store vodka in the freezer so when I fill up the flask to take along with, the very cold of the vodka causes the flask to sweat some and the felted cozy keeps the rest of the stuff in my purse from getting damp.
2  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re:stitch n' bitch felted marsupial tote on: May 13, 2004 08:34:27 AM
I've got a few projects that I used needle felting on as well - and used some roving that I bought and then couldn't figure out what to use it on!

www.frog-it.com - click on the PUrses.

If you order felting needles, they come with instructions, and I can post more details if anyone is interested...next time, I promise to take pics as I do it...

We still do it without much of a schedule and are planning on meeting sometime this month (which is May).  I usually post stuff on my blog at http://craftypolymath.blogspot.com about our meetings so check that sometime soon.

I know about SWAK and I am sorry. I've had a few people make simiilar comments about the store.  Especially the owne. She's quite a wretch and a bit of a snob. She's got this thing against people who don't use over-priced or just plain expensive yarns. She made a comment about "walmart cheapening yarn" and what she doesn't understand apparently is that people who start with Walmart yarn may eventually work up to the cashmere she sells at $26 a ball - but no one is going to respond well to her brand of business savvy (or lack thereof) . It's a shame really because I like the selection.

Oh how beautiful (both the child and the handknits). I love knitting for my three year old - the pieces knit up so quickly. That being said, I like www.elann.com for different and inexpensive yarns and www.smileysyarns.com - the former has high end and very interesting stuff - the later has more mundane but really cheap. Hope that helps.

I agree with knottedknickers - it sounds as though you followed the directions. I've made a few baby cardigans and am always happily surprised at how wide the top is in comparison to the bottom, but it always works out. Think about it. Most of the time babies are wearing sweaters over something else and they have short little fat arms. Happy knitting.

Those are too clever - I haven't done embroidery in such a long time - what a great way to combine things I like - I could add embroidered flair to my felted purses - thanks for the inspiration!

I've got two going to Plain Mabel now that I've got my labels to identify to the world at large that "Yes, I made that!"

Here's a pic of one of them:
This one is Beige.  The bead the keeps the flap closed is a felted bead so the entire thing is pretty much just wool!

I've always used binding tape with double folds for pockets when using any type of boning in a dress. For things that were lined, I'd leave an end open, slide the boning in the self-pockets and sew the tops closed. The problem with that is that many lining materials aren't as hefty and you end up with poke through - very uncomfortable.

I didn't go - a review will have to be forthcoming.
