1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Could someone please help me identify this stitch? =] on: July 27, 2008 01:30:30 PM
Hello there! Cheesy

For a winter clothing drive, my friend and I were hoping to knit one hundred scarves to donate to those in need. (as well as some hats, too, hopefully!  Smiley )

I was searching online for some inspiration and I found this scarf:

I was wondering if any of you wonderful knitters out there know what type of stitch this is? I'm pretty certain that it is not a regular rib because it seems to lay flat. I think that it may be a broken rib, but I am not certain.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Cheesy Thank you all so much!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / 1963!!! HELP!!! PLEASE!!! on: March 14, 2007 04:20:20 PM
hello there fellow craftsters!!!!
I am currently in desperate need of your help. I have recently been assigned an era report on the year 1963. It was completely free range...meaning that we could choose any aspect of the time that we wished. Me, being the ever so outgoing person that I am *cough*....decided to choose fashion/trends of the time. Now my teacher wishes for me to present one sample of clothing for every season. I need an example of a typical ensemble for winter, spring, summer and fall.  Cry Cry Cry The only problem is that....this was quite awhile before my time....and I can't seem to trust certain pictures to be relevant/reliable.........so I would greatly appreciate any help you guys have to offer.....I'm not sure if bell-bottoms were all the rage yet either...so please...HELP!!!! Cry
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / interfacing substitute? on: February 18, 2007 02:29:47 PM
hello all

I just wanted to ask a quick question-is there any substitute for interfacing? With me, I live in a fairly small city, so the nearest fabric store is a 30 minute drive away, which means that I only have the time to stock up on supplies on the weekends. whenever I can, I try to stock up on lootttsss of interfacing, and when I can fine the time, I like to sew during the weekdays. At  weeks ends....somewhere around thursday or friday, I tend to get a compulsion to sew purses like a mad women, but I'm always out of interfacing, and when it finally comes to the weekend...I tend to forget about what I had originally intended on making......which is always a bummer. so I was just wondering if there are everyday items that I could use to substitute for interfacing? per say...paper towels (yes, I know that's far-fetched!!!  Cheesy) or do you think that just sewing in an extra layer of muslin would work? please comment!! your ideas really would help!!! this is the time for all of you clever craftsters to show your improvising skillz!!!!
oh and P.S. if anyone has been wondering why I tend to imply that I sew often but never actually make any posts of my finished work it's because my camera is being a bit...difficult at the moment. hopefully I will get a new one soon so that I can post my recent projects  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / embroidery hoop silkscreening on: December 28, 2006 08:38:34 PM

5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / I've never painted before...... on: November 10, 2006 03:33:34 PM
As the title says, I've never painted before, instead I usually stencil on clothing and such. I've always been more of a "crafty" person than an artsy one, but I painted this a few days ago when I found out I couldn't take art this year, bummer. So anyways, I was really bummed out and I was looking around on the internet and I saw something that said, "Deep down we all want to be emo as f**k." It made me laugh, seeing as how almost 1/3 of the kids at my school are emo. So any ways, I ended up painting this. It sucks, I know, but doesn't it remind you of the grudge? BTW, I'm NOT EMO

oh, and I had some paint left over so I painted small pictures that are pretty much cliched emo.(they were painted on index cards that I had lying around. I hate wasting paint.)

Yeah, I know my painting skills really are inferior to all of yours', but comments and critisms are always welcome.
(oh, yeah, hahahaha, I'm wondering if you guys can guess my age now, judging from my paintings.)
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Mucial Kitty :) on: September 30, 2006 04:11:34 PM
I made this kitty for one of my brother's friends a while ago and finally got around to posting it on here. The kitty is completely handsewn because my sewing machine had apperently gone on strike. I originaly planned on naming this kitty Melody because of the fabric but I ended up embroidering an "L" with a bow on it because the recipent's name is Lorie.

8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Painted binder anyone? on: September 06, 2006 04:24:53 PM
first off, I apologize in advance, I shouldn't have even bothered posting this because I totally suck at stenciling, (As seen in my previous post) so again, sorry for causing you this trouble and having you actually click on this post only to find out that it is utter ****.

This is basicly just a binder I got at Target for about $10. It seamed so plain and massed produced so I decided to paint and stencil it. (p.s. thank you for looking at it out of pity for my totally lame skills)

and a close up:

THanks for looking
(This is the part where you go off to look at better looking projects created by more talented crafters.  Grin )
9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / FIRST STENCILS EVER on: September 05, 2006 12:55:35 PM
hello there fellow crafters. This is my first post ever, so please, go easy on me.  :-\These are my first stencils ever, and on top of that my first one was for my brother (who always demands perfection) which was pretty tough on me. my brother wanted headphones and wanted it to say Soul Junkie in groovy letters. at first I said "What the heck is a Soul Junkie?" so he said,"It's just someone who likes music." and then I thought "DUH!!! hence the headphones" we got the pic from stencilry.org and we downloaded the font from somewhere.

 Now, let's see if I can get the pics to work

one I made for myself, it's corny I know

comments and critisim welcome, tell me if the pics don't work
