3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet Hat Curl Help!! on: November 22, 2009 10:47:28 AM
I'm making a hat for a friend of mine and while increasing, I added an extra row of stitches  Embarrassed. Now instead of going from  24 in the first row to 36 in the next row, I am going from 24 to 48 in the next row. And my hat edges are curling at the sides! So, my question is if I keep going on with my wonky hat and do normal increases from here on, will it be a larger version of the original pattern or will it just continue to be wonky  Huh? My friend has a pretty large head so it wouldn't be too much of a problem if it came out larger than usual  Grin!

This helps so much! So basically, instead of chaining another stitch as I would for an increase, I am making another hdc....

I've been crocheting simple stuff for a while now and wanted to make a bag for myself this summer. Though I've gotten most of the basic stitches down, I cant make sense of this part of my pattern:
2 hdc in next stitch

I know what hdc is AND I know how to do one hdc in one stitch...but TWO? *GASP*

Help me! *whimpers quietly*

ps. the pattern is http://suzies-yarnie-stuff.blogspot.com/2008/03/april-wavy-bag-c.html

8  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / "Sewing Genie Help!!!!!!!!!" on: February 25, 2008 04:26:15 PM
So here's the deal:
I bought one of those sewing machines aptly named the "sewing genie" for mending stuff at value city for $5. I thought it was a pretty sweet deal......

Until i actually tried to use the thing.

Although this isnt my first time sewing, I dont own a machine and thought that this one would be perfect for the little projects i plan on doing. Sadly, the machine turned out to be a piece of junk. After i finally threaded it (it took waaay too long), there seems to be a problem with the bottom bobbin. The needle just doesnt "catch"/"loop" the bottom bobbin thread like its supposed to....and thus, my sewing machine does not sew!

Anyone have any suggestions? Anyone else buy one and figure out how to use it? Did i pay $5 for a paper weight?
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: "hindu/indian/???" themed Prom Help!! on: September 26, 2007 05:45:13 PM
I'm Indian and I think the idea for your prom rocks!
Try something like a mandap (read: pretty altar) for where they take the prom couple photos:
If you guys have the budget, something Arabian like this would go nicely with the Indian theme:
This website has a couple of cool pictures too though I'm sure you guys dont have to do anything this elaborate:
Maybe you could have a henna artist there too..

If all else fails, look for ideas in Indian wedding catalogs.
