1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: hogwarts crest on: May 30, 2009 08:21:47 PM
thanks for all the feedback guys! i wish i could take credit for the pattern, but the person who runs (ran? most of the site is down for some reason) made some awesome patterns of all sorts. maybe one day i'll use my energy to make some complicated patterns of my own Smiley

Wow! I can see why you said you haven't posted in a while! Since you were working on this beast! I LOVE it. I have the pattern saved, but I'm too scared to start doing it because of the time length and the possibility of messing up.

i did mess up! i had to start over twice. once because i started from the middle trying to work my way out and miss counted (wine+counting stitches = baad idea lol) and the second time because the entire piece of fabric i was working with was too small! im pretty sure the only reason why i finished it is because i am that stubborn  Cool
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / harry potter hogwarts crest from a cross stitch pattern on: May 26, 2009 10:46:20 PM
i havent posted here in ages but since this thing took so long i thought i'd show off a bit :-D

the pattern is from by little mojo the only difference is that since its on black i had to fill in the spaces with green so the outlines would show up. its in a 16x20 frame w/out the glass for the time being.

hope you guys like it Smiley
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / binding when you have no folios? on: May 26, 2008 07:33:15 PM
so my cheap-o copy of the lord of the rings (its all 3 books in one tradeback) pretty much fell apart. ive bound books before so i figured i'd just rip the paper cover off and re-bind it w/a pretty cover. well...all the folios in the book are either tearing super quickly since the paper is thin and the glue used is thick, or they wont open up all the way because of said glue.

so, is there a way to sew this thing together w/out punching holes in the fold of the folios? my google-fu has failed me  Undecided
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / pattern drafting - what tools do i need? on: August 26, 2005 09:01:07 PM
so, i have these magazines from japan that come with sewing patterns (you can see one here if you're curious: http://www.otaku.co.uk/cgi-bin/itemview.asp?itemid=66889e). my problem is that not all of the pieces for all of the outfits n stuff are on the pattern sheet, some drafting is required. the pictures are really good so knowing japanese isnt my problem.

but anyway, my question is, should i go out and buy a set of french or ship curves or something or is free-handing the curves safe? right now its just me, a ruler, and a giant roll of tracing paper. also, if i do decide to buy some curves, do i need a whole set or just one thats a particular size? these things really baffle me lol

thanks for any help Smiley

Alicat, you have to like pull it tight. it will make more of a fat strand of knitting rather than something flat.
