1  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / *EDIT* Removing and re-dyeing eyelet dress on: April 16, 2011 06:56:51 AM
Thanks for the initial help with my dyeing question...I have bought this dress in light pink:


The under layer is a coral color and the overlay is a super light pink eyelet.  The tag lists it as 100% cotton throughout.  I really want a yellow dress.  Is there any hope for being able to remove the color enough to then re-dye it yellow??
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Where to buy PhotoEZ or StencilPro? on: June 18, 2010 05:35:05 PM
Does anyone know of any chain craft stores that carry PhotoEZ or StencilPro items?  I found them online, but shipping is quite pricey, so it would be great if I could find them at JoAnns, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, or AC Moore...
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Picture This Transfer Medium? on: June 18, 2010 03:46:21 PM
Hi all!  I am looking to make shirts for an organization I am in to avoid the crazy high costs of getting them screen printed.  I've looked at getting my own screen printing stuff, but it would be nice to be able to simply and easily get multiple colors in the design.  But, transfer paper always seems so plastic-y and I've had a lot of trouble with it peeling off.  So, I was wondering if anyone has used the Picture This Medium by Plaid, or a similar product.  Does it make the transfer stiff or likely to come off quickly?
Just trying to figure out my best option for getting these shirts done.  Thanks!

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Scarf Pattern for Novelty Yarn? on: January 30, 2009 07:49:59 PM
OK, so I've been knitting for over 4 years now and have mostly distanced myself from the novelty yarn category.  But Michaels had a crazy sale, and I got 3 skeins of Patons Allure (http://www.patonsyarns.com/product.php?LGC=allure) for $2 a skein (regularly $6!).  I really want to make a scarf out of it, but don't know what kind of pattern to use with the fun-fur-like texture of yarn.  Maybe something kind of lacy?  I just know I don't want plain, boring garter stitch.

Any suggestions?  Thanks!!
6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Painted ipod inspired Tiles on: August 19, 2008 10:48:31 AM
I really hope this is the right board...if not, feel free to move it!  I worked a paint your own pottery studio this summer, so I painted a few things.
These are tiles that I painted to hang as a wall decoration.  I put down stickers for the words and painted over them, then peeled them up to leave white letters.  The black pictures were done with stencils that I cut out with an x-acto knife.
7  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Flip flops turned dressy sandals! on: August 11, 2008 01:04:34 PM
I started with a pair of kitten-heel flip flops...

nd cut some fabric out of an old stretchy camisole. I tacked it on the bottom of the shoes (the tacks are now more silver/black because the white color coating came off after walking in them a bit) and then gathered it in the middle with some string...

This is my first attempt at shoe reconstruction...a little amatuer with the thumbtacks, but I'm very pleased with the overall look!
8  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Dressy sandals out of flip flops?? on: July 24, 2008 02:40:12 PM
I bought a pair of black flip flops that I wanted to dress up, but I can't seem to get them dressy enough just with ribbon, rhinestones, etc.  I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to turn them into dressy sandals--I bought them to wear with black skinny jeans, but I hate flip flops with skinny jeans, cuz they make my feet look big.  Could I turn them into t-strap sandals, or add a wedge heel, or anything???  Thanks!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / "A Stitch of One's Own" book--yarn fiber??? on: July 17, 2008 01:14:03 PM
I was wondering if anyone else had the book/kit set "A Stitch of One's Own."  It came with some yarn that I remember is some kind of acrylic/nylon blend, but I lost the label.  Now I want to dye the white skeins, but I want to make sure there's enough nylon in it to take the dye.  This would be a huuuuge help!!  Thanks!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The Anne Elliot Spencer! on: June 26, 2008 06:25:19 PM
It's done!  I am in loooove with this little cardigan!  I had to modify it for a smaller bust size and I knit it on size 4's.  Also, the scalloped edging is a knit pattern, not the crochet that the original uses.  I'm so happy with how it turned out!
