1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Curtains in place of missing cabinet doors? on: November 30, 2009 09:36:00 AM
I don't have any pictures of my sad excuse for a kitchen but I live in a very small apartment.  When it was remodeled before I moved in several years ago...two of the cabinet doors were lost.  Originally I thought, "cute!  I could do what interior designers do and do the open cabinet thing."  However, when I realized I don't have a pantry, that idea went out the door and I have two exposed cabinets. 

I've been Googling for ideas but haven't really come up with much in the way of pictures.  I'm thinking with a nice print fabric, it could liven up the kitchen.

Has anyone done this or have any ideas?

2  California / California: North / San Francisco craft workshops on: April 14, 2009 02:16:53 PM
I am having a hard time finding classes in my area for things like beginners quilting and PMC jewelry making...or just general craft classes.  I'd love to find some weekend workshops in San Francisco, possibly in May.  I have tried Craft Gym but came up empty on finding any dates. 

Any pointers would be welcomed!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Want to make a halter...need pattern! on: April 20, 2008 07:20:11 PM
I'm a born-again machine sewer and I'm just now teaching myself to use patterns after 8 years of only hand sewing.  I want to make a halter like this...

Anyone know where I can find a pattern?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I need this converted into a chart/graph... on: September 25, 2007 09:34:23 PM
Would someone be willing to do this for me?  For some reason I'm having a hard time getting it to look right in a chart...I tried one of the automatic picture to graph and it doesn't look right.

I think it's my first graph project and I'm having a hard time figuring it out and how it's supposed to look.


I'd like it in a chart like this...


I'd be eternally grateful!!
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Shrinky dink shaping and cutting... on: September 23, 2007 08:47:22 PM
Okay, I'm about ready to throw my exacto knife out the window.  I have been attempting to cut a very detailed shrinky dink (three times!) and either my hand is too unsteady or my blade isn't sharp enough because I keep slipping and cutting the colored part of the shrinky dink.  So I'm wasting my paper to cut this thing and getting VERY frustrated.

Can anyone tell me how they do such detailed cutting on their shrinky dinks?  I've seen some amazing work on here and I'm trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong.
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Origami earrings...need something to firm paper. on: July 05, 2007 09:49:56 PM

I've made some origami earrings and I want to make sure the paper doesn't get messed up from wear...

Can anyone suggest a firming product for the paper??   
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Making Custom fake tattoos? on: July 20, 2006 05:55:54 PM
So my dad's birthday is coming up and he's been joking with me that he's going to get a tattoo now that he got a motorcycle.  So as kind of a gag gift, I want to get him a fake tattoo...but I want it to be personalized. 

Any ideas on how to make something like this? 
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Very Easy Ripple Shawl...not so easy for me. on: May 08, 2006 06:23:40 PM
What in the bejeezus am I doing wrong here?  I'm reading the pattern exactly as I interpret it....

Row 1 (right side) Knit.

Row 2 K3, purl to last 3 sts, k3.

Row 3 K3, *[k2tog] 3 times, [yo, k1] 6 times, [k2tog] 3 times; repeat from * to last 3 sts, k3.

Row 4 Knit.

Okay...I get all that but why the heck is it coming out wrong?  Whenever I'm getting to the part where I repeat Row 3 after the first time, I end on another part of the pattern.  And the ripple part doesn't look correct.  Please help, I'm supposed to be working on this for Mother's Day and time is running out!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Beginners wristlet/arm warmer pattern? on: September 02, 2005 08:34:07 AM
I've been knitting for only a year and still have yet to venture out of the scarf comfort zone.  However, I just was given two skeins of Lion Brand Microspun in turquoise...it's beautiful and I'd hate to waste it on something as boring as a scarf.  Someone recommended making a wristlet or arm warmer and it sounds like something I could try.  Does anyone have any favorite patterns that would be suitable for a beginner?
