2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Bunny Jacket/ Cardi on: March 01, 2008 03:55:45 AM
Last winter i rememebr this girl in class had a cardigan, i'm pretty sure it was knitted.
 It was brown and long to her thighs, though she is short (like me). The jacket/cardi thing had sleeves ofcourse and a hood on which 2 bunny ears were attached (to the hood) Then it has a little fluffy tail like a bunny. It was so cute, i wanted to buy it but i was too shy to ask her where she bought it!
so i thought i might inspired an advanced knitter to whip up a pattern for one as i think it is an excellent idea!!! But i have no talent in knitting, though i plan to learn more this winter.

If any one knows the pattern, i would like a free one that is easy on how to knit a beanie/hat/shapo/jamakan, that sort of loose head thing, lol. Is there any wool that is really soft? I don't want it to rough up my hair, i get hat hair easy, lol *rolls eyes*

Winter is comming up and i want to have fun kniting while the wool is still cheap.
thank you in advance... Smiley

I have knitted years ago and pearled a bit, but i am very amature!
I want a loose hat, maybe even one with a scarf like part attached, or one i can tuck all my hair into to keep my hair out of the way.

wow. i wrote that years ago! I forgot i even wanted to make one!!! haha
Well i obviously procrastinated and didn't get around to it! ah well, there is still the future, but i'm so busy nowadays as school just started. I would have had time in the holidays!
Well we will see... I like the fit of the new pants. they are perhaps a bit high... I may shorten the hieght and widen the bottom of the leg to flare out more, i think it will be more flattering.
lets see if i get aroudn to it THIS year some time, hehe

Thank you for all your help  Smiley

I actually managed to find some dimentions on that site:
rectangular scarves were 166cm x 53cm,
square : 3'2" x 3'2"
trangle were 170wide  x 60 tall.
and the accent scarf was 180cm x 30cm.

They used chiffon i think and cotton gauze.
I really want to try out satin or a similar smooth fabric so it won't frizz up my hair...lol. Like silk would be nice- but a bit costly!

I can't wait to make some. By a rolled hemn you mean just fodl the fabric on itself a few times and sew yeah? do i HAVE to line up the grain? Do you think it will work out if i leave the satin as just one piece of fabric not 2, with one side shiney and one not?

Well i tied my satin scrap fabric on and i managed to tie it nice an tight and it didn't slip unless i knocked it.

I want to make a satin head scarf....so I can do this:

I especially love the colours on this one:

I just bought some 50cm long satin. It is a rectangular shape sort of. maybe about 40cm wide?

I think it is a bit too short, as i just tried to do that crown tie but there is not nearly as much dangling down as the models scarf has.

My satin is a nice olive green colour, it matches my eyes perfectly. How would i go about makeing it into a scarf? just cut to size and neated the hemn? Because one side of the satin isn't shiney, and one side is....

Thank you for any help in advance Smiley

Also if you know the correct proportions it should be it would be much appreciated. i am 5 ft flat if that helps. Also i would prefer the scarf was made from satin or silk or a similar soft fabric so that it won't frizz up my hair Smiley Thank you!
8  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Basic Soap Recipie and Instructions on: November 21, 2007 05:14:43 AM
I'm a newby from australia looking into makeing some hand made natural soap and shampoo bars- small batches, for home use.
I have scoured the web finding bits and pieces here or there.
For those at home who have a basic recipie or have a lot of experience with soap making i would be extremely pleased if you could share:

-exact basic recipie listing allowable changes ( ie 12 drops of whatever essential oil you like)
-instructions / how to (step by step explaining jargon)
-do's and don'ts (ie- orange essential oil is BAD)
-and where to buy these products (ie- LYE) from in Australia!!!
estimated cost of a batch would be helpful too. Smiley

 I'm meerly a student on a budget but i am interested in natural safe, home made recipies and something gentle for my damaged hair and eczema prone hands.

if you know a site where it is ALL at, pleae list Smiley Thank you!!!

I am aware there are different types of soap makeing, i am not interested in M&P, the old traditional way is best, and if you can describe the different other methods, i'd likely be most interested in the fastest or cheapest way because i have little patience! haha

thanks in advance Cheesy
