1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Could I dye this? on: March 25, 2008 04:44:50 PM
This might be a stupid question sorry, I don't know much about dying!

I have this hoodie:

...which I'm going to resize to make it fit me, but it has horrible marks on it where its been left in the sun and its bleached the colour out  Embarrassed would it work to dye it back to the original colour, or would that affect the print? Thanksss!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Blue Sweater with Buttons :) on: October 04, 2007 09:05:23 AM
Finally finished sewing this up this morning, I haven't had much time for knitting lately because I started uni (which is amazing! Although it's in London, which is a bit scary after spending all my life in the english countryside!). Anyway, I love it very much! I originally planned a cowl neck, but ended up running out of yarn and I haven't gone yarn shop exploring here yet, so I changed my plans. I think I like it better this way anyway. Both cuffs and the waist border button up. It's my favourite made up pattern so far!

Here you go....

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Accidental scarf! on: September 08, 2007 03:42:59 AM
I bought this yarn for the ribbing of a sweater, but being forgetful I didn't take the swatch for the rest of the sweater yarn shopping with me, so of course it ended up not matching! But no matter, it made a lovely scarf:

The cable was also a accident, it was meant to be a normal basic cable but I crossed it the wrong way near the start and couldn't be bothered to rip back, so I kind of worked it in!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Black Sweater with Swirly Bits! on: August 11, 2007 02:49:40 AM

Ahhh I love it!

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Transformers anyone?! on: October 09, 2005 05:27:26 AM
So I have this friend who saw pics of some of my stuff.....and since has been BEGGING me to make him a Transformers shirt. Which I of course agreed to do!

However - I have no knowledge whatsoever about Transformers, so I have no idea what I should put on said shirt! I googled it and all, but am lost as to what would be a suitable image!

So.........ideas anyone?! Any help would be very welcome!  Wink
7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / To ship overseas or not??? on: September 08, 2005 04:45:38 AM
Well, I'm from the UK and have an etsy shop in the pipeline. I've read pretty much everything I can find here and on the internet about shipping, but am still very confused!
Obviously shipping internationally would mean more potential customers, but I don't want to have to charge ridiculous rates for shipping or spend so much on it that I don't make a profit.
So my questions are....
1) Shipping from the UK.....what is the best way to do it?
2) How much should I charge to ship internationally?
3) What about customs, what would I have to do about that?
Thanks, I know this has probably been posted before but as I say, I confuse easily!  Roll Eyes
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Oh yes....the fabulous SKA MESSENGER BAG!!!!!! on: August 19, 2005 05:13:01 AM
I'm off to Leeds festival next week, and needed a bag which I could take into the arena with me, that is big enough to hold all my stuff but wouldn't be awkward or stop me from moshing! So, creation that ensued.....



The Ska Messenger Bag! I am so pleased with this, it's the first bag I've made and I think it turned out ok! The stencil will be sewn on, it's safety pinned atm because I am lazy. Oh and the stencil is from stencilpunx btw!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Polka dots. And denim. In different shades :) on: August 17, 2005 07:39:53 AM
Here's my two latest projects. Both have been done a lot before, but hey, I thought I'd have a go!

So, without further ado:

La jeans skirt....not entirely sure what I am doing, impersonating a chicken it would appear....

Les painted shoes....

Thank you kindly for looking!
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Green funkiness on: August 14, 2005 05:49:35 AM
I found this skirt in a charity shop. It was mid-calf length, tight and khaki and not terrible pretty - so, I chopped off a few inches so it was just above the knee, added triangle panels at the sides, put pockets on the back, sewed on some zips and trimmed it all with ribbon. Oh, and stencilled the patch on the back pocket.  Smiley

This is the back:


Pocket: (sorry you can't see it very well)

I need to finish putting ribbon on the front pockets, but it's near enough done!
