11  Re: Church of Craft Kansas City in Kansas by Cherith on: April 02, 2007 10:36:07 AM
We're having our second Church of Craft meeting this coming Saturday, April 7th at the Urban Arts + Crafts store in the Briarcliff Village Shops. 

We're going to attempt a project this weekend, so I wanted to make a post with some details for those of you that weren't at our last meeting, or those of you that were but might not remember. 

April 7th, 2007 2:30pm - 4:30pm
Project: Make Your Own Journal, or Blank-Page Book
Meeting at: Urban Arts + Crafts in the shops at Briarcliff Village (send me PM if you need directions)

Cardboard cut to the size of your book, folded in half.
Fabric One piece large enough to cover the cardboard width-wise three times.
Paper At least 20 pieces cut just slightly smaller than your cardboard cover piece
Regular Desk Stapler or Needle and thread (I used crochet thread)
Ribbon or other embellishments

Everyone is welcome.  I really hope people can make it!!

I was notified yesterday that Morbid got her package, so I wanted to post pictures of what I sent her.

13  Small Blank Journal w/Pockets in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Cherith on: March 01, 2007 09:35:56 PM
This was my first attempt at a journal, I wanted to do this for the Reading Rainbow swap. 

For the cover I used thin cardboard and covered it with fabric, folding it at the bottom to make the pockets.  I ran a ribbon through the inside of the pockets to the outside of the book, to keep the pockets in place at the edges of the journal.  The inside pages are cardstock. I'm not thrilled with how the stitching looks on the inside, although I think it looks better in person than it looks in the picture.  Smiley

Here's what I receieved yesterday from Morbid!  I got a slew of bookmarks - two I'm guessing done with Polomer Clay and two Paper.  There's a pen (also covered) and that great purplish leopard print bag (so fuzzy).  Thanks Morbid for all the great stuff!

And a close-up on the bookmarks

Just finished my second one of these last night.  I made a few adjustments - garter sticth and fewer repeats.  It turned out far more like a headband, which is what I was going for.  I also decided to add a ribbon, so it'll have a little color.  This is just some left over black acrylic that I had around, and it's turned out much warmer so far then the moda dea I used before.

Here's pictures of the stuff I recieved from rebeldaisy!  There was so much stuff in here, it didn't really all fit in a picture, but these show most of it.  The funky animal print in the background is mine.  *grin*  I've already got plans for lots of it.

Here's mine.  I did the full pattern in Moda Dea's Cheerio (lovely yarn that was gifted to me for Christmas)- which matched the gauge.  It took me a while, and I discovered how much I suck at ribbing with small yarn, but I finished it.  I'm not a button girl, so I attatched the ends together, so no open & flat shot.

All folded up it looks like this:

The "Perfect Match Sport" yarns all have old Sears price tags on them.  Sears hasn't sold craft stuff for who knows how long.  Which is why I'm guessing late 70s.

I picked up an old Singer machine. 

And a the sewing basket that came with it.

19  Inherited Vintage Yarns in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Cherith on: January 08, 2007 06:28:06 PM
So my grandmother-in-law used to be a Shop & Swap-er.  She's got all this great stuff laying around that never got around to being fixed or getting sold.  Recently she inherited four vintage sewing machines and a bunch of yarn, fabric and patterns.    She let me have my pick of the sewing machines, but then she also sent me home with this giant bag of old vintage yarn. I had to share.  It doesn't have any dates/years on it, so I'm not sure how old exactly some of it is.  However, by the colors I'm guessing late 70s early 80s.  The good news is that it's all acrylic, so it's washable and still good.
