21  Re: McCall's hat pattern - BEWARE! in Sewing Pattern Reviews by Inna on: March 28, 2005 11:43:16 AM
i bought this pattern for the newsboy cap - make the large size!!!!!!
the small wouldn't fit a four year old!!!!!
I haven't tried the other patterns yet, but i had no problems putting this together other than I hated how they told you to finish the hat - so I changed it. I am putting a piece of elastic in the back for smaller head sizes now. I have been buying mens wool sportscoats at the sally anne for material for these. They look fabulous.

undo the screw that holds your existing foot on and insert new foot

the triangle shape is because of the Bob cut. To make it less triangle like you need to add some layers. The easiest way to do this is to make a pony tail on the top of your head and then cut it straight across.

Check out my post
It might help you get where you want to be.
I don't know if the jeans would work - the material might be a bit thick.
Let me know how it turns out.
For a japanese look you could cut rectangles out of faric and sew the edge up to match your bicep measurement - very oriental.

25  Fleece Legwarmers in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Inna on: January 03, 2005 11:40:05 AM
I made these fleece legwarmers for my daughter who refuses to wear anything but dresses - It's cold in Canada in the winter!

What I did was measure around her knee, and from her knee to the floor. Then I drew my pattern on a piece of paper. I added an inch to each side at the bottom of the pattern to make a flare at the ankle. Remember to add seam allowance - I keep forgetting and have had to give a few pairs away.

What do you all think?

Perfect!- I did one like this for my husband last year - but i just went with it instead of measuring his head. I wanted it to be a surprise. Anyways, i had to trim the top to fit later because he looked like a cone head. Then it turned out a bit short. He loves it - thats all that counts.

Measure around your head from forehead to ears to back of head to ears back to forehead.
Then measure the top of your head from ear to ear.
Draw a rectangle on a piece of paper to the dimensions you just measured.
Measure the distance between your ear your forehead and your ear. Marrk where your ears are on your rectangle.
Place the palm of your hand over the ear mark you made on your rectangle, trace your palm. - Do it again to the other mark. You should now have a rectangle with two bumps.
There is your pattern. Add seam allowances. Cut out two pieces of fleece, sew them together around the short side of the rectangle sewing around the two bumps.Turn it right side out. Hand sew the two long parts of the triangle together with a running stitch - pull the stitch tight to make the top of the hat and stitch securely.
this is just a thought - I have never tried it myself.

here are mine....

Excuse the unshaven legs, it is Sunday morning, oops, afternoon - and i just ain't gonna deal with it today!
i get a new tatoo every five years - i have another three years (i'm 32) to figure out what i want and to come up with the money. I have never regretted any of them. I am thinking of changing the blob/angel/bird thing though.

strips cut in spirals - the seams let go when you knit the strips - at least they did in sari silk.

Here is my scarf out of sari silk .
