3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Accordion Straps?? on: July 24, 2008 10:34:59 AM
I was afraid of that! I do have one strap completed, so I am gonna test it with the remaining strap just out of curiosity.
My accordion looks to be Royal brand, Emperor model, but when I look online, I can't find anything that is like what I have.  Huh
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Accordion Straps?? on: July 22, 2008 10:34:47 AM
I recently acquired an awesome accordion that hadn't been touched for 32 years... and in that time, the leather straps were stricken with dry rot. One finally gave way yesterday  Cry and I am having a hell of a time finding replacement straps without having to order them online.

My question is this: do you think that if I were to crochet straps, would that be a suitable substitute for leather straps? My accordion weighs (I estimate) at least twenty pounds. I have already started making a strap two inches wide in a pretty dense sc and I want to make them pretty long (46 in or so). My main concern is how I will get the ends secured and strong enough to hold that kind of weight. What would be the best method for that? I was thinking adding large buttons on either side and sewing like hell, but maybe someone else has a better idea. Thanks!  Kiss

7  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Bead bracelet on: September 23, 2007 12:26:21 PM
Kind of a tribute to the first scarf I made for myself. It's lost forever now and the yarn I used doesn't exist anymore either. :'[ So I made this bracelet with the same colors.

I am thinking the colors will look better once it has a shiny glaze on it. What do you think?

WOW, Shocked I didn't expect such detailed responses! Thanks for the awesome tute, seampoints!
krissykat - Thanks, I am in love with the fabric. I hope it turns out!

I am definitely going to spend some time poring over this thread with my mom tomorrow. I hope to have it solved tomorrow and I will definitely post pics. Thanks, everyone. :]
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Hoodie Issues **TUTORIAL ADDED- Sewing in sleeves** on: September 13, 2007 11:19:57 PM
I'm attempting my first ever hoodie from this tut https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177602.0 and I am only on the sleeve attachments. It looked fine until I sewed the first sleeve on. I took pics but the pattern on the fabric is so busy that you can't really see what I mean.

Soooo, I drew an illustration... (4.23 hours in MS Paint, btw.)

How should I attach the sleeves to avoid these bulges and dents?! Do I need to trim certain areas?
It's probably hard to understand what I'm talking about but I thought maybe someone has had the same problem.

I'm a little late to the party, but wow, everyone is getting such awesome stuff!
Sevsonlygirl, I am so glad you liked everything :] Did you notice the silver spacer beads on the jewelry have a little design on them that looks like a snake? I was so proud of myself for finding Slytheriny beads. Wink Cheesy
Apparently my package will be at my house when I get there this afternoon, I am so excited!
