1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / transfer on a viscose t-shirt? on: March 27, 2008 10:08:48 PM
Hi all,

I've done several transfers (successfully) on cotton t-shirts, and now I've bought a Calvin Klein (ie. not cheap) t-shirt that would look a gazillion time better with a transfer on it. Thing is it's a viscose knit, not cotton as I originally thought. Has anyone ironed on viscose rayon? Should I risk it? What's the worse that could happen?  Undecided
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Desperately seeking a pattern! on: October 23, 2006 07:08:00 PM
I've been collecting Vogue Knitting magazines since 1986, and I am looking for a pattern from an issue that I must have misplaced. I'm almost positive the issue it came from was produced sometime between 1986 and 1996, and that it must have been a fall-winter or holiday issue (I know, it's a shot in the dark, right??).

The sweater in the pattern is an off-white, women's high-necked pullover that has wide ribs all over, except for the front and back center panels where there is a wide, multi-stranded cable.

I have searched all over the web and ebay to find the back issue that this pattern came from, to no avail! Please help if you can! Thanks,


3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Alchemy Yarns Rockstar on: May 10, 2006 10:30:25 PM
Has anyone made this in size large? There seem to be some problems with the pattern. I've completed the back and didn't have any difficulties with that, but the fronts are another story. I started the left front and ended up with the wrong number of stitches. The the right front instructions made no sense, so I emailed Alchemy to ask for help, and they sent me corrections that seemed to clear up the right front problem but messed up the left front more than ever. I'm about to knit the left front for the third time. I've never had so many problems with a pattern! It's one of the most frustrating ones I've ever used. Is it just me?... Huh

I'm making a Beastie Boys iron-on to put on a t-shirt, and I'm kind of semi-pleased with what I have so far:

I like the floating heads, and I like the Japanese font as opposed to using our alphabet, but I'm just not sure about the colours/spacing/shape etc. I'd really appreciate your input!
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / burlap messenger a la gloriana on: June 12, 2004 08:28:58 PM
I made this messenger bag using Gloriana's tutorial and wanted you all to see the results:


I found a remnant of burlap at a home dec store and based the bag on that. I lined it in pink linen, and interlined it in felt to give it stability. The extra thickness of the felt made it really hard to sew, and I ran into trouble sewing aroung the corners of the flap when I was attaching the lining. I made the back and flap in one piece, which I thought would make it easier, but really just made it harder to sew the thing together! I think in the future I'm just going to follow the tute that much more closely.

Finally I decorated the bag with shell sequins, shell buttons, and plastic sequins. I'm really pleased with the results! Thanks for the tute, Gloriana!
