11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: pinwheel blankets on: December 03, 2006 08:50:01 AM

I used a free pattern online for a pinwheel square.  I will have to try and find it if anyone is interested in it.

I would be interested! what a nice effect. This would be amazing for a scarf also.
thanks for showing.

13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Irie hat with dreadlocks on: November 22, 2006 03:42:14 AM

I designed and made this hat. The hat itself is knitted, the dreads are 'fingerknitted' and crocheted - afterwards they were felted in the washing machine. A free pattern will soon be published on my blog.

Thanks for looking.

Well I can imagine those girls being totally stunned by the beauty of those wings. I think they are incredible! What are they made of?


15  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to (not) make... thanks and a follow-up question... on: October 28, 2006 08:45:55 AM
Everybody thanks for the replies! I am definitely going to go to the 'more-than-one-dollar-store' to get some quality duct tape.

The follow-up question is this: I was planning to actually try these duct-tape models for felting slippers in the washing machine. The plan is to fill up a succesfully made duct tape model with e.g. syntetic fiber, and secure that filling. Then I would do the last period of washing machine felting of the slippers with these models inside, so the end result will fit my feet perfectly. I know people do this last step of felting in the washing machine with commercially produced styrofoam forms succesfully.

The question however is this: Will the duct tape model survive the washing machine? Has anybody tried?

16  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / How to (not) make a model in duct tape for custom fitting... on: October 27, 2006 05:21:49 AM
I thought it would be handy to have a model of my foot, e.g. when felting slippers or so, so I put on an old sock and placed duct tape all over. It went well. But after 24 hours it looked more like a piece of art:

Has anybody else had this problem? Is it just the quality of the duct tape or??
Please help me!

Thanks Runnermom!

To answer the questions: I put the snap throught both sides of the fabric at the flap part, but only on the outside fabric on the bag part. At the time I was doing it I thought that was the best way, since you won't see the snap on the inside, but now I realize that the backdrop is that it's less stable. So another time I would put it through both fabrics. And it's easy to do, you just follow the directions on the package.

The straps are sewn (by hand) on the top. I guess a knot would annoy me. Also I made them really long, so the bag is on my hip when I have the straps on the opposite shoulder.

Thanks for your comments.

That is an amazing achievement. How much of it is not ties?

BTW I'd like to see the contest URL!

Hi everybody,

I made this bag inspired by a tutorial I think I saw on this board. I did not actually use the tutorial, read it once or twice, and then drew up my own pattern, and added a flap.

I do want to give credit though, of course, to the maker of the tutorial! Who is it?

The bag is made of two new, cheap pillowcases. Inside fabric as the outside flap.

(other comments welcome too, of course).
