1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Twilight Replica ::Bella's Mittens:: With Pattern on: December 03, 2008 11:16:38 PM
Oh, those are gorgeous.  I'm not really into Twilight, but my 13-year-old cousin is and she would probably love something like this!  Does anyone know maybe how big I should make them if I attempted to knit these for her?  She's a pretty average-sized 13-year-old but if I made these it would be for a present so I wouldn't want to try to measure her or anything, that would give it away.

I'm thinking a Bob Ross themed challenge?  Now that would create some awesome crafts.

This combines knitting and lolcats aka MY TWO FAVORITE THINGS.  Consider this idea stolen the next time it rains in Richmond.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Burdastyle Jumper on: June 28, 2008 01:18:09 AM
This is my version of Burdastyle's Laura Jumper.  They describe it as something to wear around work, and most of the examples are made out of suiting materials and fancier things, but I thought it would look really cute as a cotton jumper for everyday summer wear.
I took the pictures with my Mac's built in camera, so yeah, bad quality.

I have a ridiculous farmer's tan right now.

It took a bit of patience and super-alteration-skills (and a bit of magic) to get this to fit over my ladies (they are too mature to be called "girls").  But it worked, and I'm so happy it fits!  Lolz.

A closeup of the fabric and lining fabric.  The colors didn't quite come out, but the lining is the same light blue as the button and the stripe in the pattern.
I am in love with Burdastyle and will definitely be making more of their patterns (despite their sizing stopping a good THREE INCHES before my bust measurement).

Aw, he's adorable!  I don't think he need any features.  If you do add some, I say do like BonBabbu said and make them in the gray color so they're subtle.

LOVE the leopard-print lining, and the straps are really cool too.  All around a pretty sweet-looking bag.
8  UNITED STATES / Virginia / Moving to Richmond on: August 13, 2007 12:58:29 PM
So I've spent my whole life in NoVA, but I'm about to start at VCU (my move-in date is Sat!).  I love to sew and knit, and I've seen some people posting about cool places, but I'm just wondering where are the best places to shop for sewing and knitting stuff while I'm on a tight budget?
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Peace+love+pants= my fav bolero!*TUTE!!! lotsofpics!* on: July 18, 2007 10:00:51 PM
I love this idea!  I just attempted it out of an old linen skirt that I don't like because it's gigantic and I don't like wearing long skirts, but I seem to have made a measuring error.  I used a vest to figure the measurements, but my mid-way fitting was a disaster (waaay too small).  Luckily I have enough fabric to try again (it was a big skirt).  Oh well, learn from your mistakes, right?
Anyway, cute jacket and thanks for putting up the tute!  I love sewing, but don't do many collars, so I definitely need the extra instruction there!
10  CLOTHING / Clothing Sewalongs / Re: The Mysterious Galliano Pirate Jacket - Help Me Decipher It or Sew-Along! on: June 04, 2007 09:32:30 PM
Well, now that school's out, and as long as I have an employee discount at the fabric store, I'll definately be giving this a try.  I have a tendency to get very frustrated and give up on complicated projects, but I've been sewing for a long time now, and this thread seems to address many issues already.  Once I finish the dress pattern I'm working on, I'll try it, although I'll definately have to adjust it, I'm much larger than the model in the picture.
Oh, well.  Lead me to the cheap muslin!
