31  Re: Pantie Purses in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by girlypirate on: August 23, 2004 05:18:59 PM
i'd cut new lemon-shaped pieces of fabric to fit the gape on the front, but make sure it tapers so they still look like panties when you seam the whole thing together and don't lose any space.  oui?

32  love stencil in Stenciling: Completed Projects by girlypirate on: August 05, 2004 02:00:06 PM

i made this from a photo i took a while ago.  i left some grey in to pick and choose from when cutting.  pm me if you'd like the full size stencil.  it's around 2000 pixels wide, so you can make it very large if you like.

33  obnoxiously simple fingerless gloves in Knitting: Completed Projects by girlypirate on: August 05, 2004 12:34:08 PM
if you're like me and like small projects for instant gratification, you should make these gloves.  they're infinitely adaptable.  i made them today riding with my dad to get his new freightliner work truck.  (boy is it sexy, if you like that sort of thing.)  took me an hour.  they're comfortable, and i feel like a very hygenic hobo.

14sts= 4" on size 7 Am. needles.  row gauge not important.
1.5 oz Sugar 'n Cream kitchen cotton.
size Sm (M, L)
make two.
CO 23(27, 31) sts. 
work even for 5" in stockinette stitch, minimum.
Fold wrong side out and seam for 1/2".  Leave 2" space, or whatever space will accomodate your thumb well, and continue seaming to bottom edge.  repeat for other glove.

this is my version of the cozy, with an arm band.  it's knit in a cotton/nylon blend, so no scratching worries.  the earthy tones make me feel a little less like a techie when i'm running around listening to my ipod.  yay.

tutorial for using a bead loom:
you need:
cotton warp thread
nylon beading weft thread
long rigid beading needle
seed beads
a bead loom, (of course)
  • Thread your loom with warp thread.
  •      This is the most tedious part of working with any type of loom.  If you want a piece 5 beads wide, you'll need 6 warp threads + 2 strands, 1 to
         reinforce each edge, each as long as your piece plus 12".  For the imaginary sample project, that makes 8 strands 2 feet long.
              Tie all strands to the stretching dowel, then lay all the strands into the center of the spring or spacing apparatus on each end.  Lay 2 threads
              into the first space, 1 into the next 4, and 2 in the last. Tie all strands onto the dowel on the other end, loosen the wing nut, and wind the
              dowel until all the strands are wound taut and even.  You are now ready to start beading.
  • Tie your weft thread onto the leftmost strands of warp thread, and thread your needle.

[li]String as many beads onto your needle as you have spaces in your project.  The example project has 5.[/li]

[li]Bring your needle underneath the warp threads, from left to right, and align each bead into a space between threads.  You will probably want to use your finger to press them upward and hold them in place.[/li]

[li]Bring your needle back through the beads, but this time over the warp threads.  The first few rows, bring your needle through the first bead, check the needle point to ensure it is going over the warp thread, and go to the next bead.  Do this across the row.[/li]
[li]Repeat down your piece.[/li]
[li]As you progress down your piece, you may find you have run out of room, especially if you are working on something long like a belt.  In this case, loosen both wingnuts, and wind the top bar up so the beadwork winds around the top dowel.  Re-tighten the top wingnut, then stretch the piece taut again with the bottom dowel, and re-tighten its wingnut.  I love that word.  Wingnut.[/li]
[li]As you progress down your piece, you will also probably run out of weft thread.  When this happens, just tie it to the leftmost warp thread, as you did in the beginning, and run the thread through the last row of beads and clip at the edge.  Tie on new thread, diguising the end in the same way, and keep on trucking.[/li]
Have lots of fun and make many pretty seed beaded things.

36  hello kitty beaded bracelet, now with bead loom tutorial in Beads: Completed Projects by girlypirate on: August 02, 2004 01:55:17 PM

i found the pattern for this ages ago and i didn't save a link with it, so i can't reference you.  purin is a little hard to see, but i'm very happy with this.  i haven't played with a bead loom in some time and i forgot how fun it was.  i'll post a loom tutorial if there isn't one up around here somewhere.

38  el che johnny depp in Stenciling: Completed Projects by girlypirate on: July 24, 2004 07:55:26 AM
so i'm reading https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=9606.0 this thread and looking at the stencil thinking, "yeah, it's johnny depp, but it looks like someone else..."  El che!  All that's missing is the star on the hat and a bit of goatee.  so i get two idols in one, and a cool shirt.  it's a 2XL wifebeater of my dad's that i cut down but left long.  then i cut off a fraying section of sleeve, replaced with some pretty trim and sprayed away.

yeah, so i gave the hat to my buddy, but forgot to take a picture with it on him.  i did, however, get one with my dear friend elmo.

it's way cuter on kyle.
p.s.  i omitted the last round of dc before switching to the pattern because it made my hat way too huge.  my gauge was pretty close, so check the pattern just in case.
