Ohmygosh...so cute!

I envy people who can make small things. I tried to make a tiny stuffed bird the other day and ended up having to turn her into a finger puppet because I couldn't figure out how to sew it up properly.

This little raccoon is so, so adorable Smiley I'm jealous!

In other news... nice job, shoegirl, on all the many hats! How long did it take you to make that many?

Ooooh... your embroidery is gorgeous and I absolutely love the doll! I am so jealous of people who can draw!

My mom used to make me paper dolls when I was little that looked like my favorite book characters, so I've got a special fondness in my heart for homemade paper (or in this case magnetic) dolls. Now that I think about it, my favorite paper doll was this little chubby rabbit named Max and his chubby sister Maxine. Perhaps somewhere back in my subconcious, I'm holding on to those cute chubby rabbits as the ideal in cuteness Wink

PS - Has there been a burlesque swap yet? If not, there should be!

Even though I think tampons are evil, these little guys are so cute, it almost makes me want one!
927  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Silk Screening w/ Kids on: January 17, 2006 01:37:08 PM
Hi there... I work weekly with kids who are abused/neglected/abandoned and who live at a group home for children. We do various arts and crafts projects with the kids (ages 8-11), and we are thinking about trying to do a silk screening project with them next week since they have been bugging us to make t-shirts.

One of the volunteers offered to bring some of her own materials to class, but I was wondering if anyone on this forum has done silk screening with children before. If so, do you have any suggestions or stories that might help us avoid a disaster or just any insight or helpful references to share?

I'm not eligible to swap yet, but hopefully I can crank out enough posts in time for round two of this swap! I was near tears after reading a bunch of dieting hoo-ha and I thought... there have got to be some people around these parts who are comfortable and happy with who they are, and thank goodness there were!

Having a positive body image is not just about looking and feeling good to ourselves, but also encouraging other people to feel good about who they are and what they look like.

All of the chubby lady art that came out of this swap is awesome! I am especially in love with mommabear's quilt, the adorable, fluffy, goat, the cool aprons, and that sexy trucker lady graphic Wink

I was wondering, does it curl up when you do this? 

Unfortunately, it does curl up a little. I scoured the internet for information about the knify knitter the day after I got it and I found some message boards where people posted about this problem. One woman's solution was to take it to her dry cleaner, another one said she ironed her stuff. I don't think I would try either of those things, but my girlfriend knitted a scarf with regular knitting needles and it also curled up around the edges. So, I don't think it has anything to do with the loom, or the fact that it's round.

I asked my mom where she got my loom, and she told me that she got it at Michael's where she lives--a whole set of 4 or 5 looms for only $9.99. A pretty cheap birthday present and she got a scarf out of the deal!

My mom gave me a Knifty Knitter for my birthday in early December and said "I had better get a hat and scarf for Christmas!" My first hat was kind of boring, so I toted it around with me for a month asking anyone if they needed a hat until it eventually found a home. I made my mom an awesome scarf for Christmas, though, by using the small, blue one and wrapping around every peg but one... So, what you do is knit around as wide as you want the scarf to be, but then instead of continuing around in the circle, just turn around and knit back the other way.

The part that tripped me up at first was how to wrap the yarn so that it looked right on the edges... I found a little video that showed how to do it (the short answer is that you sort of always skip over wrapping the first peg on the row). Check out some of the movies on here if you are having trouble: http://decoraccentsinc.com/knittingloommovies.html
