thank you everyone for your comments!!

purplexime, i just cut a piece of fabric that was the same dimensions as the scarf, and then pinned them right sides together, then sewed all the way around on three sides.  i left an opening at the bottom of one side of the scarf and then pulled it so that it was right side out, then just sewed the hole up! simple as pie!
17  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / LIGHT BLUE SCARF WITH FABRIC BACKING!!!!! on: December 19, 2006 01:26:24 AM
i knitted this scarf in record time, but didn't like how in the end the sides rolled in, i knew that it would look like that in the end, but anticipated liking it that way, boy was i wrong... so i had to come up with something to decrease the rolling, thus sewing on a fabric to the back.  there is a little less rolling, but i like it a lot just the way it is, super simple with a little flair, tell me what you think!!!!!-marina

how i like to wear it.

different way of wearing it...

augh.. don't like this pic, but it shows the scarf well.. Wink

and lastly a close up of the details...
18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sewing sleeves...help me before i go insane on: November 17, 2006 10:31:07 PM
i read somewhere that instead of waiting to sew the sleeves on after you have sewn up the side seams of the body of the jacket, pin each one half of each sleeve to the front and the back and then sew up the side seam and the sleeve at once.  This way you don't have to worry about matching the holes of the sleeve to the arm hole of the body of the jacket... sorry if this makes no sense, but it makes sense in my mind... my mind works different then others, but if you understand, i hope it helps!! good luck, this method helped me a lot, because i struggled just like you, trust me, waaaay easier...
19  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / I MAKE A CUTE DINOSAUR I MUST SAY!!! on: November 01, 2006 11:07:13 PM
i am in love with this costume soooooooooooo much! i was a "sexy" police woman, but it wasn't working for me, so i decided to get crafty at the last minute and make my costume... a dinosaur!! i give complete props to hobaker who inspired me and gave me motivation to finish the costume one day before halloween, so she rocks!!!  i've decided that i do cute waaaaaaaaay better then  i do sexy, which is just fine with me, enjoy!

i used an old bathrobe as the bulk of the costume, and just cut it up, so it was more formfitting.  from the extra scraps, i made the shoe coverings, and i had the white fabric in my room for the stomach and the talons and the spikes.  I stuffed the spikes and tail with tissue , and the headband is the part of the robe that you tie around your waist.  let's just say that the material was not the best to work with, because i got green fuzz EVERYWHERE.  but doesn't matter because this is the best costume i've ever had, IT"S A KEEPER!!!!!! it held up to the mean streets of castro, so i couldn't possibly never use it again!  enjoy!

the homemade feet!! i loved these!

the whole ensemble!!

with my buddy chris, too bad you can't see the tail, it was being difficult...
20  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / POLICE WOMAN COSTUME, HELP!!!! on: October 27, 2006 04:21:53 PM
i'm making my costume for the first time this year, and i haven't started yet Sad i'm planning on being a police woman, and i'm going to be making a pencil skirt and then reconstructing a dark blue men's button up, not made by myself but included is a wide black belt, heels, aviator sunglasses, and of course, handcuffs.  the only thing that i am having trouble with is the hat.  i want it to look really good, because i think that this will make the outfit! since i'm making a lot of it, i want it to look really good, or else i'll look stupid! HELP!!
