1  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Primitive Crafts Board on: October 23, 2007 05:30:57 PM
I think craftster needs to create a primitive crafts board. There are so many people getting into primitive arts and crafts. For example primitive dolls, how to dye/grunge cloth to look primitive, primitive soaps, primitive rag items, such as rag candy canes, rag balls, etc.
I have not found a website that allows users to share their primitive crafts and their ideas.
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Felted Tote on: June 15, 2007 06:29:36 PM
Here is a 100% wool tote I crocheted and then felted in the washer. It is about 11" wide and 12" tall. I am very proud of how it turned out. It feels really nice on my shoulders which is a plus. Not sure if the picture will show the true colors but it is mostly brown with off white and blue stripes.
I can't decide whether to line it with cloth or not.....what do you all think? I need some suggestions, eager to start showing it off..... Smiley

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Picture Purse on: June 07, 2007 10:52:11 PM
I wanted a way to display a picture of my 2 children and came up with this purse.
The plastic the picture is behind does not photograph well because it does not look that smudgy in person. I guess the flash catches all fingerprints that you don't see.
I made it out of black canvas material that was given to me and the linning is red with white polka dots. The interfacing is 2 layers of fleece linning. This was a very easy purse to make. I made it from a Simplicity pattern. The picture construction was my idea, just bought some plastic that Walmart sells on a roll in the fabric section and sewed it on by hand to form a pocket and added the little flowers I found clearance at Walmart. Slide your photo down behind the plastic from the top.
I made one like this a year ago for a friend and she is still carrying the purse around and it looks just as good as the day I gave it to her so I know the plastic withstands the abuse we put on our purses.

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Retro Purse on: May 31, 2007 06:34:43 AM
Here is my purse I finished making at 2:30 this morning.....whew
The picture does not show true color but it is a Navy blue on the outside and the inside is red with small white polka dots. The inside has a pocket with a zipper inserted.
I forgot to mention I installed a magnetic closure after this picture was taken.

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / crochet hat on: January 24, 2007 09:29:10 AM
This is a hat I made for my son.....he wanted one made using the Georgia Bulldogs colors. He is a big football fan.....
 I just winged it on my own and did not use a pattern.....
He says it is warmer than a store bought hat.... Smiley

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / tapestry crochet horse tote bag on: January 24, 2007 08:25:16 AM
This is my first posting and my first completed Tapestry Crochet project.
I really enjoyed making this tote bag. Carol Ventura's patterns are the best. They are very well written and easy to understand. This will be given to my son's teacher whom loves and owns horses.
Hope she likes it.....
Here is the link to the pattern that I used.

Oh and by the way if anyone is wondering what that is beside the purse it is a Native American flute. I make and play them..... Smiley

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with size conversion on pattern on: September 20, 2006 12:49:51 PM
I want to knit this pattern I found on Joann.com for my daughter who is in a size 12-14. I can't seem to find any patterns for this size no where. Can anyone please help me with converting this pattern to the size I need of 12- 14 or tell me how I convert patterns to a different size?

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / pattern help....Bunny Blanket Buddy on: September 16, 2006 06:12:32 PM
I am just learning to knit and I am trying to knit the Bunny Blanket Buddy that is posted free on the Lion Brand webiste. Here is the link to the pattern.
I cannot seem to figure out how this pattern is worked. Has anyone ever made this? If so can you help me to understand this pattern? I start getting confused when it gets to rows 40-41. The amount of stitches I have made at the end of row 49 does not match what the pattern states. I am just learning to read knitting patterns so what seems easy is a little difficult to me.
To make it worse I have crochet for about 15 years and when I tried the crochet version of this pattern it blew my mind even worse.... Sad
I am not sure if it is the way the pattern is written as opposed to what I am use to reading. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I wanted to make this for a baby shower gift but can't seem to get it figured out.
