3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / How to decorate a rubber band? on: July 01, 2007 07:33:29 AM
My father hasn't carried a wallet in years.  We've bought him all sorts of them, but he just continues to keep a neat little stack of credit cards and money in his pocket, held together with a rubber band.  He uses the nice, thick kind that come on heavy produce like bunches of broccoli.

So, rather than buying him another wallet he'll never use, I was hoping to decorate one or two of these rubber bands to be better-looking than they are.  I'm not sure about what will work, though.  Any ideas?

Would a sharpie work, or is there some kind of sharpie-like permanent ink that exists that I could paint it with?  I'm willing to whip out the crazy lit magnifying glass to make it detailed.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
4  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / 1st embroidery project (be kind!) on: February 08, 2007 10:40:18 AM
I've wanted to start embroidering for a long time, since my grandma left me a big drawerful of supplies.  These are pillowcases for my friend's birthday.  Her cats are her life, and I tired to reflect their different personalities. Boy, those metallic threads are F*%*%*ing hard to work with.

 Thanks for looking!

My niece loves pink, so I made her this for christmas from a frogged mohair thrift store sweater.  I think it looks like 1940's barbie!

7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / costume help? on: August 28, 2006 04:54:17 PM
I trust your brilliant minds to help me with this-

I am making costumes for a dance number for my all-curvacious-girl dance troupe; we are expanding into Broadway Jazz and need costumes for a number from Chicago. Everyone's pulling together some basic tight black and fishnet getups, and I wanted to make fringe-y, beaded, lovely things we could wear around the hips- I got some amazing beaded fringe trim, but... what should I hang it from? All the stuff in the fabric store that seemed heavy enough was matte and seat-belt-ish. Not glammy enough! The beads are heavy, and I'd like a nice base that's sturdy without being clunky.

 We range in size from about 16 on up, so I was thinking of making them big strips according to size, then have them tie or lace together with big silky ribbons, so people can wear them higher or lower, for more or less waist showing-off.

I can kind of sew, and a couple other dancers (who can do it better) are willing to help, but .... any suggestions? Am I biting off more than I can chew here?  I have time- it'll be a couple months before we need these.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Fingerless gloves on teeny-tiny needles on: August 27, 2006 10:56:30 AM
Hello! I'm new to posting but a longtime lurker.  I thought I'd post an FO here-

Fingerless gloves from the Handjive Knits, Breakfast at Cafe Du Monde pattern. I bought the yarn when I first started knitting, since it was this amazing hand dyed cashmere/spandex (!) blend. It was so tiny, though, I had to work up the nerve to go near it.  These were made with size 3 (eyelet bottom) and size 1.5 needles (the rest).

I'm not sure I like how the striping happened on the fingers, but they are so heavenly comfy and warm and super-thin that I almost don't care.

Hope these images come through:
