21  Shhhh there are smudgies under the bed in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by goldencrafter on: October 20, 2006 07:27:10 PM
After many months of trying I finally captured a picture of two elusive smudgies under my bed. They are shy but playful creatures and once they see that you mean them no harm they become quite affectionate. Grin

To say the least my DD loves these little guys and I have been having fun with them too.

22  pants to skirt recon help please in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by goldencrafter on: October 16, 2006 01:52:31 PM
I have spent the last hour and a half searching here for an anwser but couldn't find one.

I am trying to make a skirt from my jeans but dont' want to put that little triangle thingy in the back. Is there another way to finish the back so that it has a straight seam? Here is why when I opened the leg seam I was left with a very dark seam and it looks out of place

The front is coming out fine but it's the back that has me stuck.
Any help would be great, Thanks

23  Mccalls 5137 in Sewing Pattern Reviews by goldencrafter on: October 16, 2006 09:54:36 AM
I don't normaly wear dresses but saw this pattern and gave it a try. I like the way it came out. The instructions were very easy to understand and the dress went together pretty quickly. Because I am 5'1" I thought that view A would be best because I would have had to make the lower arm bands on the others more narrow and it would have looked weird. The only negitive is the back, it is not very flattering so if I make it again I think that I will try a slightly larger skirt so I can add some fullness back there.

24  Mango 1.5 skiens scarf in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by goldencrafter on: October 04, 2006 11:44:04 AM
I've had this very pretty Mango colored yarn for a while but couldn't find a project that was good enough for it. After seeing the one skien scarf I thought why not.
Because this yarn is a sport weight I used K and J hooks and chained 303 instead of the 203 called for and used one and a half skiens. The Result is an eight foot scarf that is soft and snuggly. It's been a long time since I made a wearable for myself.

25  help changing wedding dress sleeves in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by goldencrafter on: September 14, 2006 09:34:24 AM
A friend wants to go to a costume party as a bridal doll. We found an old wedding gown that is in great shape but she asked if I could make a few changes to it. I have done everything else but the sleeves. I am  stumped. The dress has a portrait bodice so the sleeves are off the shoulder and they have that eighties puffy thing going on and there is elastic along the top of the sleeve.

Sorry I don't have a picture of my friend wearing it (she's out of town)

I was thinking about something like these

I am sure I can figure it out on my own but could really use some help. Has anyone made anything like this ?

I got the book on Tuesday and made this a few hours later. It is my favorite pattern so far mainly because it uses Red Heart super saver. Smiley

I am so proud of myself (yes I know that's conceited but what the heck) I FINALLY made a round ripple afghan. For months I have been trying but could not figure out the pattern, but with some help over at www.crochetville.net I got it. I am calling this one Rock Round Ripple I used Red Heart Super Saver Black and Red. Have planned two more as Christmas gifts.
