1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Re: Industrial gothic institutional themed club costume on: September 28, 2007 06:39:50 AM
You are talented!!

If you plan on working more with vinyl I'd suggest investing in a teflon foot for your machine.  I couldn't live without mine.  The vinyl will slide like silk with a teflon foot Wink
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: July 2007 Wish List swap gallery! on: August 24, 2007 09:39:53 PM
I'm really glad you liked everything, superhooker Cheesy  Here are few clearer pics of the bags:

Click for larger pics
These bags were based on ones from her wists found at knitone.com.  Those suckers are $68!!  Definitely one of those things that are "quite-nice-but-I'd-never-pay-that-much-for-something-I-can-make-myself" This is the first one I made, but I wasn't happy with how droopy it was and with the fact that I thought I 'd be clever and add a grommet where yarn could come out.  Then I thought about it and figured that when she put her WIP in the bag there'd be this little stretch of yarn hanging out, not good...

So I made another one and sent both 'cause she might actually like the droopy one with the "hole" in it Wink

Comparison shot...

And just because it took me forever to get good pics without these one of these 2 wandering into the shot...

ACK!!  I was scrolling way too fast throught "hottest topics" and I saw something that made me think, "Holy mammaries, Batman!!"  Looked at the detail shots and said, "Ooooooh, they're lungs."  Roll Eyes  This ROCKS!!
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Broken Spool Pin for Mystery Machine *Pictures inside* on: August 21, 2007 04:27:39 PM
According to a friend of mine in the industry, DRAGONFLY operates out of South Africa and manufacture machines for other companies and itself.  They make Singer machines although they are not affiliated with Singer...the logic of that is lost on me Wink.  Since it looks like a Singer part it may have been designed along Singer specs.  You may get lucky with the singer dealer.  Hope this helps to allay your fears Smiley
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Soot Sprites, Hello Kitty, ice cozy and sea turtle (6 images) on: August 21, 2007 12:28:52 PM
ACK!!!  My dd is a Miyazaki-FREAK and those sprites are AWESOME!!  Love that you took a pic with the konpeito.  I used to eat those as a kid and since they don't have them here I asked my mom to send some for dd's 4th b-day.  She kept telling everyone that she was eating "soot-food" Cheesy  Thanks for the inspiration, now I'm off to Joann's for some soot...umm...yarn Wink
6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: Amigurumi Guinea Pig on: August 21, 2007 12:12:13 PM
Lenny!!!  (Sorry, have a 4 year old who loves Wonder Pets).   Seriously realistic guinea pig!  My son would love it (and it does look remarkably like the guinea pig Wonder Pet)!

LOL!!  That was my second thought, for the very same reason.  My first was, RALPH!!  He was my beloved-ever-so-cute gp when I was a wee one.  This ROCKS!!  I have never paid for or wanted to pay for a crochet pattern, but I would certainly pay to have this pattern Grin

Thanks for all the encouragement and comments Cheesy .  Blocking worked Cheesy and now I'm off to try cables Grin

I think the only reason why there are no holes is because I was going so slowly.  20 minutes for that little swatch when I can knock out something like that in crochet in less than half the time.  Well, practice, practice, practice, something I totally don't mind doing...I'M ADDICTED Grin

Thanks, darlings Cheesy  I was afraid I was doing something HORRIBLY wrong.  I guess since it's my first stockinette the furrows look glaringly obvious to me Wink

I'd guess you've got uneven tension. Blocking should fix it. BO your swatch, (if acryllic) wash it or (if wool) soak it, and pin. See what happens!

Newbie raises hand and asks tremulously, "BO?"
