61  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help me fill in a pattern from a knitting calendar? on: June 19, 2007 07:45:01 PM
I have a pattern-a-day calendar from 2005.  On September 7 is a pattern for a Zig Zag Lace Tam.  I made the hatband eons ago, then had to rip out about an inch of the upper part.  I had been carrying the two sheets from the calender around in my knitting bag, slipping one sheet that I wasn't using into my journal.  Well, now it's summer and I've got the time to finish it and I can't find the first sheet.

I'm hoping that someone around has this calendar or the pattern somewhere in their craft closet so I can get the steps up to Round 9.  That's really all I need.  Help?

The tam is the same one pictured on this site.  http://www.earthheartdesigns.com/PAGES/Patterns/All%20Patterns/zigzag%20hat/zig_zag_lace_tam.htm
62  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / What did I do WRONG? on: June 09, 2007 09:24:47 PM
I was making some pajama pants from a pattern, and I cut out the pieces last night (cut two each of the back and front of the legs with the fabric doubled over.  Everything was going fine.  I sewed the fronts to the backs and went to sew them together in the crotch when I found that I had made two identical pieces instead of mirror images.  Before I set to ripping apart the seams to try to fix it...what did I do?  I may have sewn them wrong side to right side, but I don't see how switching the pieces will fix my problem.

9 years of 4H and I still need my mommy to come help me!
63  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / A tutorial for vinyl window ID pockets (with photo links) on: March 12, 2007 11:26:07 PM
Here's the steps:
Cut a rectangle about an inch to and inch and a half bigger on each side than an ID card (I used my old bus pass) cut a rectangle out of the middle so the inside hole is still about half and inch smaller than the card.

 cut small diagonal cuts towards the outside points of the patch.  press to the outside.

fold the outside edges in half an inch so they lay on top of the inside pressed edges.  cut a square of clear vinyl that nearly fits inside the folded outside edge.  It's important to have it go nearly to the edge because you'll want to catch those in stitching. pin.

Sew around the inside window, 1/8 inch from the edge.  This will pretty much secure the vinyl to the fabric.  While you're at it, sew along ONE outside edge, 1/8 inch in.  If you want a top opening pocket, sew along the long edge, side/short.  This is because the topstitching to sew the pocket to the bag is only going to be on three sides to leave an opening.

topstich along 3 outside edges.  Start at one end of the already sewed side.

Looking back, I probably should have put a tiny bit of velcro on the open side, but the ID shouldn't fall out.  I sewed it to the pocket which I then sewed onto the bag.
