1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / my t-shirt pillow on: April 11, 2007 05:20:14 PM
Now, I'm sure that many others have done such a thing, but I'm proud anyhow because I don't hardly ever sew!

I made it for my boyfriend's birthday because he only has one pillow in his dorm room!  I used a girl's XL t-shirt from the Sustainable Edition at American Apparel; it's 100% organic cotton; the boy is very into the environment and being socially conscious, AND it was only 15 dollars.  (And I may have bought myself one for myself bc i liked it so much.)

it's kinda lumpy, i'm hoping that'll change with use.


here's the plump-ness of it:


and this is what the seam looks like.  it's not very even, but i think it looks pretty cool anyhow.



thanks for looking!
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / pillow-making supplies in boston? on: April 02, 2007 03:05:57 PM
H'lo, everybody.  I'm planning to make a pillow for the boy's birthday, BUT I have nothing to make it with!

So, I was wondering if anybody knew of any place I could get fleece, t-shirt-material-like fabric, and some stuffing in Boston.  I don't have a car, or oodles of money for cabs, so I can pretty much only get places the T can take me.

The fabric part isn't so important, actually, because I was thinking about just getting a softsoft t-shirt and sewing her up, but I need some stuffinggg!

Thank you, dear Beantown crafsters.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / some hats. (3 images) on: March 26, 2007 05:12:59 PM
Around winter break, I decided to break away from scarves--and make some hats.  Here are a few that I've made:

the green hat, which was made for a man, and has an embroidered peace sign on just one ear flap:

(this is definitely the fanciest that i've made.)

the white hat, which i made before i was comfortable increasing and working in a pattern at the same time (i made it top-down):


the blue hat, which i made using the pattern for le slouch, except that when i followed the directions that hat got HUGE so i ended up not increasing as much.  the yarn is so so soft. i'm actually wearing this hat right now...



and, i'm sorry that i look so angry when i take pictures of my hats.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / lining a bag... on: March 15, 2007 07:34:23 PM
so.

i cut a t-shirt into one long, long strip and, upon noticing that it was way too pot-holder-y to make a soft scarf, decided to make a little bag.  and it's looking pretty cute, BUT

how do i sew in a lining when my 'yarn' is actually 3/4 inch wide t-shirt strips knitted with size 13 needles? the holes in the knit are kinda massively huge!!

what to doo??
