1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / PJ Pants! on: September 07, 2015 10:16:42 AM
Hey all! It's been a while! 
I quit craft blogging, but I finished some stuff and felt like sharing.

The thrift store down the street from me has fabric! One day when I was in there, I picked up this cute green cotton print, and a purple and white stripe (that became a robe that I haven't taken pictures of yet because I'm not sure I'm done with it).

(dammit, rotated image...sorry.  Tongue )

This was the pants pattern portion from New Look 6928. I added length (because I hate short pants unless they're tight).

First time doing a buttonhole type opening for the ribbon, too. I think it came out ok.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Circle Skirt on: May 21, 2009 08:27:13 AM
I made a skirt!

Just a basic circle skirt, and I got to use my new serger, AND my new twin needle for my regular machine.  That makes me oddly giddy.  I guess that means I'm a sewing nerd? 

I put a zipper and hook and eye on it...

Does anyone have ANY tips on making putting in a zipper less of a pain in the ass?

I found the fabric in the remant bin the other day and knew it had to become my shirt.

It's actually pretty long - it comes down to the middle of my hips.  Right now that's ok because I despise shirts that are too short.  I may end up cutting a little bit off later - we'll see...

4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / How do I make my serger do.... on: May 09, 2009 08:31:55 PM
I just bought a used serger off craigslist a few days ago.  It works, I've cleaned it out, everything's cool.  It didn't come with anything but some thread, so I bought some extra needles and matching thread, and I downloaded the manual.
(it's a kenmore 385, if you wanted to know)

The manual goes over threading and the basic serging stitch.  It also goes over rolled hems (which I'll have to get a new plate for).

What the manual doesn't cover is of course, what I want to know...

How do I make it do a cover stitch?

(I'm just learning to use it - am going to spend a few hours with it this week practicing and getting used to it...)
5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / My cats are so arty...and pretentious. :) (photos) on: June 28, 2008 10:44:37 AM
Some photos I've taken that I finally got around to uploading...

Joe, the arty one...

Wenz, who pretends to be pretentious whenever I bring out the camera:

plus, a bonus flower from when all the bushes outside my house were blooming:

6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / hand sketches on: June 28, 2008 10:41:33 AM
Hey all...
I'm realizing that I miss art.  But it only comes to me in spurts.  Sad 

I did these the other day at work...

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / ring ring! cell phone holders on: February 19, 2008 10:30:22 AM
My BF wanted me to make little cell phone purses for his daughters....

They loved them!   Yay!
(it always makes me happy when I can make the girls happy)

I kind of want one for me, but I think mine will either be bigger or have more pockets.

8  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Black & Blue Violet on: February 19, 2008 08:57:11 AM
I finished my Violet Beauregard!!

It actually didn't take that long at all - the longest part was making the top long enough to cover my butt.  Smiley

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / cables with knifty knitter? on: December 27, 2007 10:37:58 PM
So my Grandma got me a set of knifty knitters for Christmas. 

The directions look pretty simple, and I'm going to try them out tomorrow.

What I'm wondering...is there any way to make cables on a knifty knitted item?

Because if there is, I already have a good project idea.

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Using thinner yarn than specified.... on: December 06, 2007 10:42:00 PM
Okay, I'm wanting to make a skirt, the Violet Beauregard from Happy Hooker.

The yarn used in the pattern is Takhi cotton classic, which is specified as worsted weight. 

I bought yarn that is sport weight.

How much of a difference do you guys think this will make in sizing?  Should I automatically make the next size up from what I need just so it will turn out right?
