2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Plastic bags?! on: May 06, 2006 03:42:14 AM
There was a great project in ReadyMade magazine a while back where you fold the bags into squares and then join them kind of like a quilt to make a messenger bag. Some people talk about it here;
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help me find the best <beginner> Tank Top pattern on: May 06, 2006 03:33:54 AM
I'm a beginner knitter too, and just made Teva Durham's halter;
It's just knitting in the round, increasing and decreasing. I made her ballet t (well, two actually) and loved the simplicity of the pattern and the speed at which it knits up! My only complaint about the halter was that it's built for someone taller- next time I will join the front and the back about 6 rows sooner so the armholes aren't so big...
If you do tackle it, please post it!

The gray bag I just made up. It's basically a Jordy bag with o-rings and a front pocketthat has a stripe of floral print cotton on the front. As with everything, looks better in person...
Thanks for looking!

Thanks for all the feedback!!! Grin Lots of great suggestions, they are all apreciated and I will try them out on the next go. I have more than one too-short t-shirt just waiting in my stash....

New dress for spring! Made from a too-short pink shirt, band of red ribbing, a large grey men's T, and some vintage buttons. I feel like it should be shorter- feedback?Huh I've never figured out what magic skirt length makes us 5-foot women appear taller....

I'm a do-it-yourselfer, I thought purse patterns were for winps. This pattern has made a convert out of me- the way the handle is done is pure genius, and the shape is better than anything I've come up with on my own. Thanks hotpaptterns!
It took a while to make sure I had the cord pattern going in the right direction. The lining fabric was from my grandma's stash- thanks memere!

One question about this pattern- I did understitch the inside seam allowances to the lining around the top, but the seam allowances are still flipping up. Anything I can try before I resort to topstitching?

And a little grey bag made last summer;

Comments appreciated- I just started sewing last summer....

So cute! YES BUNNYHUGS! I'm from Saskatoon and have moved out east and whenever I call my sweatshirt-with-a-zipper-and-a-hood a bunnyhug my friends totally crack up. I was actually thinking of stenciling the word Bunnyhug onto my next "hoodie"- a joke only fellow Saskatchewaner would get.

Anybody know if the free pattern is still available? They do have 4 free patterns in the "demo patterns" section too- two dresses, a tank and a pair of pants.... Anybody tried them?
10  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Re: shirt dress? on: April 20, 2006 04:41:47 PM
Does it really?Huh? I looked at the drawing, and the other views, and didn't see any. Let me know how it fits if you make it- I'm a bit curvier and definitely don't want a sack-type fit, but if it's an appropriate pattern I would love to support Fitzpatterns. Post it when you're done!
