11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / HELP! My sharpie designs are rubbing off and I don't know how to fix them! on: May 01, 2006 10:14:33 PM
I need help!!! I painted a pair of beige slip-on sneakers with three coats of white fabric paint, and then drew on them in silver sharpie. They looked awesome, but then I was worried about the silver rubbing off, so then I scotchguarded them. BUT I just wore them, and the sharpie turned into one big silver smudge blob where my pant legs rubbed!!! What can I put on them to make the sharpie stick to the fabric paint? Mod podge? Some other kind of spray? I'm totally stuck for ideas!!! I'm going to have to repaint them and try something else because they look like crap!
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sexy Tunic! on: April 09, 2006 11:52:01 AM

I had a few false starts with this Rowan Kid Mohair - first it was an Under the Hoodie, then it was a BoobHolder (using two strands held together - so warm! ugh!). Neither looked good on me, so - RIP, RIP. Then I decided to just let the yarn do its own thing. I started knitting with one strand this time and used the same neckline done from the top down as Glampyre's BoobHolder. Once I reached where I wanted the deep V neckline to end, I joined and knit in the round down to the bottom. I threw a garter stitch border on the bottom and on the sleeves, and voila! A Sexy Tunic! It's light and airy (which means it's not too warm this time) and it fits me perfectly. The Rowan held up like a champ throughout the entire ordeal - I took some scissors to it to tidy it up a bit, but other than I'm so happy!
