1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: SHRINKY DINKS on: November 12, 2011 07:31:10 PM
I'm looking to make some "phrase" charms that will be used as charms on bottles of Absinthe, my question is there  a particular way to make the lettering stand out more without it being overly easy to break once cooked {IE: if I cut around the letters they seem to become more fragile, would a punch work better?}.
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Anyone else have an old Kenmore (sewing machine)? on: July 08, 2010 07:13:06 AM
I have a Kenmore 1341/158 zigzag. Which unfortunately needs a new lower belt. (T__T). This was my moms machine that she got in the 80's. I really <3 this machine, it's such a workhorse and can handle almost any fabric that I put through it.  Hopefully I can find a belt for it today {it was screeching and making whiring noises/not wanting to sew}, not looking forward to price tag if I have to take it to a shop. But over all one of the best machines I have used.
3  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Historic Waistcoat on: June 29, 2010 12:51:49 PM
In a week or so I will be playing a pirate at a festival and the costume needs to be historically correct. What I am looking for is a straight forward/easy to read bodice waistcoat/ladies vest pattern, in a similar style to these
http://bit.ly/bvTeoN  Does anyone have any links or tutorials that I could use?
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Horseshoe Nail Cross Of Lorraine on: January 27, 2010 04:33:11 PM
I am wanting to make a cross of Lorraine out of horseshoe nails. I am not quite sure if I like the look of it being wire wrapped {am looking for minimal look on it} right now I am using E6000 and wire wrapping, but am thinking that it might look better being soldered. My question is since this will be a necklace/charm will solder hold up on steel {I understand it is not a good idea to use lead solder}? Is there another way to fuse the nails or ideas on how to assemble them?  Huh
5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Absinthe Soap on: July 16, 2009 10:07:40 PM
How do you determine how much to use/the ph of the drink. Never made soap with alcohol before.
6  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Absinthe Soap on: July 16, 2009 12:23:22 PM
I know that soaps can be made with beer and maybe other alcohols {I have made several batches of soap before, cold process} I was wondering if there is anyway it would be possible to make a soap using the Absinthe drink {instead of the oil}. I haven't ever seen anything posted about it/recipes. I was wondering what would need to be done differently or how to go about doing it/how much to use, since I have never made an alcoholic soap before. Or if anyone has a recipe. Thanks

Do you just layer more pieces of fabric if is then (to thicken it up a bit)?
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Madlad Hat (Punk Knits) on: December 15, 2008 09:03:09 PM

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Madlad Hat (Punk Knits) on: December 15, 2008 08:48:00 PM
Hi, I am working on the madlad hat from Punk Knits, I have had to alter the pattern so that instead of 21 inches around it would be 26 inches around. I am about to start working on the crown now, but am not sure if the pattern needs to be altered for that part or not.

The Crown Pattern-
rnd 16: *k2, k2tog, k2, p1 repeat from * around
rnd 17: *k5, p1; repeat from * around
rnd 18: *k2 k2tog, k1, p1 repeat from * around
rnd 19: *k4, p1  repeat from * around
rnd 20: *k1, k2tog, k1, p1, repeat from * around
rnd 21:  *k3, p1:repeat from * around
rnd 22:   *k1, k2tog, p1; repeat from * around
rnd 23:    *k2, p1; repeat from * around
rnd 24:    *k2tog, p1; repeat from * around
