I love all the variations you've done with this and that it looks cool, but is still practical!
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Grab Bag (1st FO in over a year!) on: February 24, 2009 11:35:48 AM
I wouldn't normally be so excited about a bag, but it's the first time I've used my sewing machine in over a year and this is this first thing I've made with it in that time!

The outer is printed cotton and the lining is a pre-quilted fabric.

I was surprised at just how much stuff I could fit in it;

I found the pattern via this blog

The sewing took me about 2.5 hours and the pattern was pretty detailed.  I felt some of the instructions were superfluous (machine basting, for example) but I just skipped those bits.

There are a few more photos in my gallery.  Thanks for looking!

Thanks everyone!  Torbay was a real labour of love and I nearly gave up when I had four spreadsheets to keep track of the numbers for all the sizes.  By comparison, Esme was such a breeze!
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Esme hat and Torbay cardigan (my designs) on: December 10, 2008 03:44:52 AM
I wanted to share a couple of my designs that have recently been published.

Esme is a two-in-one hat that can be worn as a beret or a cloche.  It's knit in a chunky yarn and makes for a quick knit.

Torbay is a neck-down yoke cardigan (in many sizes) knit in an aran-weight yarn.  It features simple cables down the front and garter stitch welts.  A contrast yarn used in the cast on and off provide a nice finish.

Both are in the Winter 2008 issue of The Inside Loop.

I like the Leo idea, but I think if you had it done like that its not gonna be taken as leo.  Maybe you could connect them with a very thin line or have an interpretation of the constellation put there?

Like this & have the stars bold?


I see what you and TheDandySpoon mean about needing the stars connected.
I added the lines myself today and it does look better!
I'm not sure about having an actually lion on my arm - I wanted more of an abstract design than a literal image, but I can always add that later, right?
I also want the stars to be in scale, so I may use my beauty mark as one of the smaller stars and just move the image around a bit.

Taking inspiration from this thread, I decided to grab myself a permanent marker and took aim!

I'm testing the placement of a potential tattoo on the inside of my left forearm.
It's in memory of my grandfather who died suddenly in 2003 and it's of the constellation Leo.  We always talked about the stars and about life of other planets, and this (his star sign) is the most appropriate testament I can think of
The small brown dot is a beauty spot incorporated into the design.  Oh, and I'm not really that pale!

My mum's only request (having prepared her for the fact I like tattoos for the past 10 years or so) is that I make it smaller.  I was just copying off my computer screen, so it was a rough translation!

Amy, I haven't seen it as a cardigan anywhere, but the pattern would be very suitable for it and I'd love to see yours as a cardigan!

Thanks for the reply.  I just wanted to check I hadn't missed anything!  It's now on my "list" and I hope to be able to get to it this side of winter!

Anyone made this into a cardigan?

I love the pattern and I have the yarn on standby (Sirdar Snuggly 4-ply from a long-abandoned project) but I know I suit cardigans more than pullovers.

I'm capable of doing the necessary maths, but I'd like to see if anyone else has tried this yet.

For really cheap feet use ordinary buttons with a shank and handsew them.  Not a snazzy as the metal ones, but cheaper!  Grin

That's just adorable.  I love frogs more than is appropriate, though, so I'm biased!  Grin
