1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Simple notecards on: July 19, 2012 07:50:02 PM
My penpal in Massachusetts always writes to me on cute little notecards, and I always write to her on pages torn out of a steno pad.  One day I said, "Enough!" and marched over to the local shops to buy myself some cute little notecards.  NOPE.  They come in tiny little boxes that are madly overpriced and most of the time they're all identical.  I don't want to send the same notecards over and over again! 

So for about the same price as two boxes of 12 notecards, I bought a pack of cardstock that will make at least a hundred cards and 72 colored pencils, and pretended to have drawing skills.  These are what I've come up with so far.

A pansy that I sketched from the wikipedia article on pansies.

Wild roses, the state flower of Iowa, that I sketched from a scan of a postcard I sent to the Netherlands for Postcrossing.

These particular cards are going in swap packages, so I don't need to worry about envelopes yet.  Can envelopes be handmade?

I can't wait to see your pics.  The sweater I'm making is on hold for now due to overwhelming Christmas knitting.

Those are beautiful!  They're not exactly like the cables on Bella's mittens, which to me looked more like the antler cable pattern in "Son of Stitch 'n' Bitch," but a wonderful interpretation nonetheless.

YES.  We should have all written in for Chuck Norris.  Roundhouse Kicks We Can Believe In!
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Magic Attic Club Dolls? on: November 14, 2008 06:58:55 AM
I have a Magic Attic Club doll kicking around in storage, and recently I've been craving adding to her (sparse) wardrobe, but have lacked inspiration on what to make.  I'm playing around with knitting her a miniature Lace Leaf Pullover from Teva Durham's "Loop D Loop," and I was wondering if anyone else has one of these dolls and any ideas on making clothes for them? 

They're 18" dolls like American Girl, but with a slimmer, fully-vinyl body.

I don't know why I'm trying to reply to this . . . I have zero experience with male anatomy, so heaven knows I've never tried knitting for it, but I assume you'd take your basic finger pattern from any glove, make it bigger, add some ribbing to the bottom to help it stay on, or rib the entire thing to allow it to conform to the general shape without having to add any shaping, and for the love of your own sanity use a soft yarn that doesn't itch at ALL. 

Stripes or cables could be added if you feel the need to add something to keep your interest while knitting it.

It takes some time to find your rhythm, but once you do you'll speed up (and even be able to knit without looking !!!).
