21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: wool soakers for my baby to be on: January 28, 2008 09:28:56 PM
Thanks for all the feeback, thats why I love this place!!

I have an ultimate sweater machine I bought at joanns.com using the 50% off coupon, make sure it always hangs tight coming off the needles or it won't work, I learned that the hard way today  Smiley

I may have felted it a little too much, it lost a lot of its stretch, but its still cute, so whatever

The pattern pieces for the sewing tute, I found through the yahoo group wool_soaker_group

I can't wait to try these out, I still have 5 more months to wait... I'm 18 weeks preggo so far

I will be making more over the next few months, I'll be sure to share!

aww ya!!

I machine knitted (a big square) this with leftover cascade 220, I know Im a cheater, and then partially felted so it wouldn't fall apart when I CUT, eek, yes cut it up to sew this super cute soaker!

here is the tute I used http://katrinassqs.blogspot.com/2007/10/instructions-for-sewing-soaker.html

first time I've ever used the machine Wink

and here is one that I hand knit with yummy malabrigo (using the ottobre pattern)

your bag looks great and your end tabs on either side of the zipper look perfect, what am I missing, my tabs dont come out like that, mine are all scrunched up in there, am I missing something when sewing that part

Thanks a loooot for the tutorial...I made one for my hubby's cousins bday and it came out well  Cheesy

I have since found the PERFECT way to get them perfectly smooth and also kind of shiny/polished without putting anything on them.  I picked up one of those 4-way nail buffer blocks (cost me $.99), with sides that say:
1. file nail edge 2. remove ridges 3. smooth nail 4. shine nail

great idea!! I have tons of those, I'm gonna try that too, Thanks for sharing

great letters, I've made some small ones like that but I hot glued the edges with ribbon, but I kinda like the painting idea better, I think it looks neater

I've seen them hung by attaching ribbon to the back and hanging by that

Thanks so much for sharing, what a cute idea, I decided to make one for my sister, she is the only other real knitter I know, I used Styrofoam balls and bamboo skewers

I posted mine on my blog http://moosieknits.blogspot.com/2007/12/knitting-ball-ornaments-and-prizes.html
29  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Square cosmetic/knitting bag with fun green hippos from ikea on: November 27, 2007 11:20:43 AM
I've seen these types of bags everywhere for knitting and I always thought they were really cute, I searched for tutes all over and used a few to come up with this, its actually fairly easy, much more than I thought it would be.

I used some fun fabric from ikea, Ive seen on here before, green with cute white hippos, lined it with some pink cotton, a black 9 inch zipper was all I had here to use and the handle is pink with white polka dot grosgrain ribbon

everything I already had so even more fun, I didn't have to buy anything extra

The most difficult part for me was getting the corner seams even, where you sew the triangles, I had to do it twice, I also would use more stiffer interfacing when I make another, this one is really floppy, I just used what I

here's where I got most of my tips from http://dragoknit.blogspot.com/2007/02/box-bag-tutorial.html

here's some pix
