I wonder if this tam would be good to stuff dreads into? Is there a way to make it bigger? I think my dreads might fit into this size, but my hubby needs a super duper biggun.

I don't think you need to make the brim any larger, otherwise he'll look like that kid in Fat Albert. To accomadate his locs I would suggest you do a few more increases until your satisfied before starting the decreases. Good luck.

Yes you need wiggle room. My initial thought was that 1/4" would be enough ease but it wasn't. This bag has 1" and I think that the liner that has a satin surface on one side is the reason why is slips it. If you look at simpler versions, like this Amy Butler pattern, they probably have 3/4 inches of ease and with that much, the fabric matters little.

I've decided to make a bag for my sister's yoga bag. Here's my first attempt. It's a good thing it was too tight (well it wasn't, it's just didn't have enough wiggle room so the rubber kept gripping the sides) so I made the second version, all with fabrics from my stash. I had fun making it becaust it was a complex project that required all of my tailoring skills but I love the results and I'm pretty sure sister will like it too.

Thank you all  Grin About the coulour scheme, it helps that I picked fabrics from the same collection, this is what has helped the cohesive look. I love it. My next quilt will be so different, it will be a baby quilt in pinks and greens.

OK technically it's not my first quilt, I've a couple of practice ones before making this lap quilt but anyhoo. I loved making it. The instructions called for making it by hand but there was no way I was going to do that, I made it entirely with my sewing machine, even the binding. Anyway, cutting all those triangles was tedious, as was making the different rows but in the end, I love the result. I have more details on my process here, just scroll past the part in French.  I slowly building a stash of FQs and fabrics by the half meter yard or full meter, for future quilts, I already have plans for quilt for my niece, after I've done a couple of other projects. Thanks for looking.

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Aran cell phone cozy (with a couple tutes) on: November 03, 2008 05:34:08 PM
Got a not so new cell phone and after looking for online tutes I decided to make an Aran pattern from the bottom up. It was a quick project to make, the yarn I used is wool/acrylic mix that has a nice, soft feel. I also decided to make it from the bottom up, much easier to me then playing around with the kitchener stitch had I don it from the top down. So here's my tute for my Chocolat cozy.

I also made a YouTube tute on the Eastern Cast on method. Mostly because I wanted to make one in French and it was just a question of translating the slides.

Hope you like it.
