1  belated showing of medieval halloween costume in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by peanutga11ery on: December 06, 2007 12:10:31 PM
I participate in nanowrimo so this is my first opportunity to post, but here is (was) my halloween costume (my book was set in medieval england too :-)

I also made a hat, but it sort of made me look like the medieval princess leia.  Oh well.  I don't seem to have a pic of that one.

2  Dragonfable Dragon Lord Costume (rats, missed contest) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by peanutga11ery on: December 06, 2007 12:18:14 AM
I had posted asking for help in making this costume, and thought I'd show the final result.  I used the headliner material (thanks to those who suggested it)

Here is the picture it was based on:

3  Re: Skirt with underskirt, how would you make this? in Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions by peanutga11ery on: September 04, 2007 08:07:17 PM

I'd like to make this skirt. I know the top skirt is shirred, not sure if the underskirt is shirred but it's certainly loose, and not sure if the band at the waist is attached to the underskirt or attached over both after the fact. So I just wondered if you saw this and wanted to make it how would you proceed?

I'm not sure how *it* was made but I'd make a sep fold over waistband, and I'd gather both skirts and encase them in the waistband.  Does that help?

4  *gak* I get to make this for halloween (help with dragonfable costume?) in Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions by peanutga11ery on: September 04, 2007 08:04:38 PM

Help me!  Please???

Oy, why can't he choose stuff that a) resembles *something* in rtw b) anybody else will recognize and c) won't take me 8 weeks to make?


This is for an 11 year old, who went as Link from Zelda last year and was puzzled about how the only people who recognized him were 20 year old guys...


I will say, though, that my 50 year old neighbor (lady) down the street recognized him too--she has increased in coolness in his eyes...

So the cape I can manage, we're going to use batting for muscles, and I know I can find chain-mail like fabric and liquid lame, but I haven't seen a forward view of this (and contrary to his suggestion, I am not about to play the video game for 5 hours to find it...)

Ideas?  I have many patterns for costumes for kids I can plunder for basic structure

5  weasley is our king pins in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by peanutga11ery on: July 05, 2007 11:07:27 AM
We're happily crafting away here awaiting the release... my kids and I made these pins based on some we've seen :-)  I've also been making scarf bookmarks (knit) and puffskeins, I don't have pics yet of those but will post in the appropriate forum when we do. 

Hmm... what else can we make from polymer clay?  I loved the cornish pixies someone made but I  think that's a bit above our skill set just now ;-)

I finally finished knitting the body! (sorry no pictures right now  Sad)

But I have to put mine on hold for a bit b/c I don't have the right size dpns for the sleeves.  Guess I'll just have to work on other projects for a bit...

I highly recommend getting a small circ for the sleeves--after struggling with my dpn's (I have two sets of the size I needed, 5's, and they SUCKED) I ponied up and got a 16" circ and Oh Em Gee did it fly after that...

I used silk I scored (undyed) at a garage sale, dyed it myself, and beaded because so-called-friends (kidding...sort of...) convinced me that would be better.  Took for-freakin-ever.

but, I finished.  Even though I tried to join sooner so my V wouldn't be so deep, it was.  I did several more rows before lace so my lace wouldn't be on the boobage... and I am glad I stopped short of where I would've (on length and sleeves) because the silk plus beads grow... oh, and after this pic was taken, I slip stitched part of the V closed so it would stay on my shoulders better.  Like everyone on the KAL on blogger, I wish I'd made a smaller size... but I do like it!

Sorry--dd wound up in the pic, lol--this was on easter

Sorry to leave y'all hanging--

It's from Lion Brand Vintage patterns for today (? I can't recall exact title and can't go grab it just now)

yes that was dd's naked barbie--it was on my sewing table because we were making something for her.  She's clothed now ;-)

Here's a pic of me in it, sorry I look like a dork, I was at the zoo pretending to be an elephant--oh, and FWIW, having your 6yo take your picture is not a flattering angle...

8  simply spring top from May Crochet! magazine in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by peanutga11ery on: April 09, 2007 11:28:22 PM
Has anyone tried this yet?

I've done the front but I'm working the back now and I'm having trouble because the instructions don't make sense.  In the neck shaping part, it says to sc in the first 45 sts, then slp st in 2, then turn leaving remaining sts unworked.  Then it says to skip the slp sts, sc in the next 43, then dec sc, leaving remaining sts unworked.  This makes no sense to me because I wind up back up at the top and there *are* no remaining sts to leave unworked.  In addition, I possibly screwed up because it seems to be having me do all of this at the bottom of the piece rather than up top where the short row inserts are.

I emailed the mag, but it's a really fast crochet and I have no idea how long it'll take them to get back to me (it's not listed under errata, I looked).  Anyone making this?


adding:  Here's a pic of the front of mine...

9  here's mine in Knitting: Completed Projects by peanutga11ery on: September 21, 2006 12:40:12 AM

I knit mine with Schonemaker's toy (I'm too damn tired to make sure that's what it really is... I think it's fake German... but it's almost 1am so forgive me).  I wound up knitting on 9's, I think (or maybe 10's, I need to check)  I added short rows with the wonderful help of knitty's trillian42, and I started the bust increases a bit lower, and I didn't bind off cap sleeves, instead I put them on waste yarn and went back later and knit down 11 rows, and I added single and double crochet to the edges of sleeves, neckline, and bottom.  Oh, and I increased after the waist (and knit it a bit longer)  If I can manage some free time I'll write up what I did if anyone is interested.  Right now I'm off to my simple knitted bodice!  Yay, silk!
