1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Can I make this on a knifty knitter loom? on: October 28, 2006 05:30:49 PM
I found this pattern for a really pretty scarf: http://yummyyarn.indus3ous.com/patterns/MJG_Liesel.pdf. I really want to make it but I can't knit! Sad Would it be possible to make it on one of these knifty knitter looms: http://www.provocraft.com/products/catalog.php?cl=knifty%20knitter&scl=looms?

My mom knows how to knit but isn't really advanced. I just thought I would ask here if it's possible before I asked her to help me figure it out.
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Antique Brass Chain? on: September 03, 2006 12:03:34 AM
Just wondering if anyone knows how to make brass chain look antiqued? I have a million antique brass charms but can't find antique brass chain to go with them anywhere! Is it possible to antique regular brass chain? Or does anyone know where I can buy antique brass chain?
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / My first macrame bracelet on: August 10, 2006 02:27:03 PM
I found a tutorial a couple days ago and made this:

Nothing too exciting but it was fun  Smiley I used waxed cotton cord (which I really liked working with because it held the knots great!) and some wood beads that I found at Michaels.

That's my boyfriend modeling it btw. I swear I'm not that hairy  Tongue
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Little plastic horses + magnets = spiffy necklace rack *TUTORIAL* on: August 06, 2006 04:27:54 PM

I really needed a place to hang my necklaces but really don't have anywhere to put a rack that needs to sit on a table so I came up with this idea! Best of all, it only cost about $10  Grin Here's what you need:

- Some little plastic horses (or other animals. I chose horses because they stuck out far enough to hang something on)
- Small but strong magnets
- A magnet board (or something magnetic to stick them to)
- Hot glue
- Something to cut the horses in half with (we used a ban saw)

Step one: Cut the horses in half. I cut them right before their hind legs so there would be plenty of room on their back for the necklaces to rest.
Step two: Glue the magnets on.
Step three: Stick them to your magnet board and hang your necklaces  Grin

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Question about decreasing on: April 23, 2006 01:41:13 PM
Whenever I decrease it always looks ugly and has big gaps. This is exactly how I do it: http://crochet.about.com/library/bl_decrease.htm. So I assume I'm doing it right. I even make sure to keep the tension tighter to attempt to avoid gaps but I still end up with them. Is there any way of avoiding this? I'm trying to crochet a ball and the side where I'm increasing looks great but the side where I'm, decreasing looks horrible. Any help?  Huh
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / A slip cover for my desk chair on: February 26, 2006 06:11:46 PM
Hellooo! I just wanted to show off this slip cover I made for my desk chair! I made the pattern and I got the fabric from Delias so it matches the bedding set that I got there. Let me know what you think Smiley

7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Serger help? Please!! on: November 08, 2005 04:40:30 PM
I'm doing a 2 thread flatlock sticth and it's just loose. It looks ok from the outside (where the sticthing is) but when I open the fabric I can pull it apart. It's hard to explain so I took a picture of the inside.

I read the book that came with the serger and I can not figure out how to fix this. I adjust the thread tension like it says but it doesn't help. I'm going incredibly crazy now please help!! I would be so greatful!
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Made myself a real flower lei on: July 27, 2005 02:17:30 PM
I hope this is ok to post. I was proud of it  Grin
I was bored the other day in my b/f's backyard. They have a ton of Plumeria plants so I got some fishing wire and made myself a bracelet lei  Smiley


sorry for the phone camera pics. It was all I had at that time  Undecided
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / 2 Strawberry (shaped) Purses on: July 26, 2005 05:30:34 PM
I call them strawberry purses because that's what the shape reminds me of  Wink  I kinda made the pattern up for these as I went.  I love using fat yarn! The purple one is made from Caron's Simply Soft yarn which is my favorite yarn because it's sooo soft  Grin
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / A Cropped Hoodie with lace detail on: July 26, 2005 05:21:23 PM
Hi, this is my first post here. I just wanted to show off a hoodie I made the other day. It's a cropped hoodie with puffy sleeves. I covered the sleeves and pockets with lace just to give it some detail/texture. For the pattern, I traced another hoodie I have because I like how it fits. That way this one would fit good too!  Grin





Whata ya think?  Smiley
