1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / First REAL sewing project: Baby Gi on: February 21, 2011 09:57:38 PM
I will replace silly stuffed animal pics with proper action shots as soon as I have a life sized model to show them off on!

I was totally inspired by this rockin' gift: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=364807.msg4284066#msg4284066 by Muddlepud!
My BFF is really into Karate as is her whole family. She is 9 mo pregnant and still doing class once a week! They have been teasing her that the way the baby kicks and as much as she is around the DoJo that she is going to come out a black belt...
So when I saw the baby gi I just had to send her the link! She then insisted that this baby MUST have one and if I couldn't make it she would buy one! I couldn't find one at a reasonable price (she might wear it for a month before she grows out of it) and I wanted to practice sewing anyway.

The top is just a wrap around Gerber shirt (with mitten sleeves only because I couldn't find any others) with a black belt that I made from some scrap salvaged from my step mom's bin. It is sewn on in the back.
The pants I made from a white men's T-Shirt and this pattern http://www.make-baby-stuff.com/baby-yoga-pants.html
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / crochet flowers- favorite pattern? on: April 07, 2007 06:00:57 AM
I want to make a scarf similar to this but with all different types of flowers:
does that seem doable?
anyone care to share their favorite flower motif/pattern?
If it works out I might organize a crochet flower swap to make other projects!! (or more scarves)
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / crochet related sayings/quotes? on: April 07, 2007 05:53:07 AM
I know while surfing recently I found a site with TONS of cute crochet related t-shirts, but can't for the life of me find it again! I need quotes/sayings for a swap.
Can anyone here point me in the right direction? Or care to share a cute saying you've seen and remember?
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Loosing my mind! How to make an adjustable cord bracelet! on: April 05, 2007 06:55:41 PM
I've been searching for hours now and I can't for the life of me find out how to tie those knots that slide (one on each side) of a cord bracelet/neclace!  Huh Can any of you help me out?
I know it's a dumb question and a third grader can do it, but apparently I'm not as smart as a third grader tonight!  Roll Eyes
I have found a tute here, but tried it but what I ended up with was nothing like I remembered!  Cry
TIA! Kiss
5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / where to buy chipboard on: April 04, 2007 06:56:37 AM
I want to make more journals (yes I'm addicted!!), but have NO idea where to get chipboard or something to use for covers! Ihave been using cardboard from cereal boxes, but I think it't too flimsy.
Is there a reason I can't/shouldn't use rubber cement for construction? I had issues with my glue making the papers wrinkle and warp, and thought rubber cement may be the answer.

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / what yarn would you recomend for a baby blanket? on: February 10, 2007 06:39:55 PM
I have searched EVERYWHERE near me and online and I can't find ANY yarn that would be suitable for a baby blanket (star shape to be specific) in Blue, yellow, and white (can have some green) I need one verrigated in listed colors and and some matching white blue and yellow. I definitely want pastel colors and not super bright (it's fof a baby girl to be and momma's fav color is blue and doesn't like pink) Can any of you fine folks recomend someplace online?
uber thanks in advance for any help you can offer!! Smiley
8  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / PLEASE help me find a pic of a hat on a non-english speaking site? on: January 31, 2007 07:31:30 PM
I have been searching forever (at least an hour just tonight) for a picture that I saw of a felted hat.  Perhaps someone remembers seeing it and can help me out (or point me to something similar.) It was not on craftster, it was in a gallery somewhere, most likely linked from this board, but I sure can't find it again! Cry
It was a white (or wool white as I call it) and it did not have a brim (may have been a helmet shape, but I'm not sure) It had pink rose buds on it and green stems/leaves. I think it was all wet felted, but it may have been embelished with needle felting.
I have my hat finished (the base) and now I just need to pretty it up and I was inspired by that pic, but failed to wist or bookmark it and now I'm gonig nutz Embarrassed!!
Thanks in advance!!

I've spent another two hours looking for thie bugger! I have established that it is NOT on an english site! I'm thinking that it must be in another languageso it does not come up in any on my frantic searches! Does this ring a bell for anyone?
9  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Need help with wet felting flap cap on: January 27, 2007 05:57:23 AM
I want to make 2 felted things for a swap, but being a relative newbie at both needle felting and wet felting I'm not sure which to use!
1st is a small elephant... I started this with needle felting, but only got one ear done! I think the problem is that I'm trying to put too much detail and making it too large. I have seen a pattern showing making animals from various wet felted 'balls' and 'logs' and then I thought I could needle felt some detail and finish it up. Does that seem to be a better idea?
2nd (and more important) is a hat with ear flaps.  I do not have a hat form to needle felt it so I was thinking of using the wet felted vessel tutorial from this site and just incorporating ear flaps on the sides. Does that sound reasonable?  If that wouldn't work I will crochet it and then full it. (my partner asked for an ear flap hat, and when I asked more questions she likes the idea of 'felting'...fulling that is)

added... so I searched some more and I'm going to attempt to wet felt over a flat resist. WISH ME LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / crochet Blanket advice please on: January 10, 2007 05:41:49 PM
I started making a blanket for a young friend (she's just 18) and her soon to be born baby boy.  To make a long story short I HATE it!  Cry It's WAY too girly and frankly now I'm thinking I want something non-traditional.  Im I being way to hyper critical or should I just start over with different colors and later finish this one for a charity or something? Huh

edge of the front
close up of back (or then It looks better so maybe this is the front and the other side is the back:) Roll Eyes

any suggestions for an easy crochet pattern would be greatly apprecialted as well! I have issues with counting long chains of stiches, so working in the round, mile a minute or granny squares work best! Embarrassed
