You're a superstar! Thank you very much! Grin
2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Looking for a particular website. on: May 09, 2013 12:55:55 PM
Once upon a time I found a great crochet help website. It laid out all sorts of shapes and joins that would be really helpful in making amigurumi (things like making tubes and branching off and joining other tubes, and making spiralling tentacles and things), and it was laid out sort of like a curio cabinet with little cubbies with a sample inside that you could click and learn how the piece was made.

Anyone know what I'm talking about? Thanks? Smiley
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Yarn choice for phone cozy. on: August 09, 2012 09:14:44 AM
Thanks. I wish I remember more of what I was told, but I suppose you can buy all sorts of phone cozies in shops that are made from cotton and acrylic and all sorts, so it can't be too bad for the device!
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Yarn choice for phone cozy. on: August 09, 2012 08:09:12 AM
I recently got a new mobile phone, and thought about crocheting a cozy so that I don't have to worry too much about the big fancypants touch screen getting scratched in my bag, but I vaguely remember being told once that you shouldn't use certain types of yarn for gadget cozies - I don't know, because of a risk of generating static electricity or something. I was just wondering if this is true or a complete fabrication, and which yarn types might be good for such a project.
I once bought some microfibre yarn, which I thought would be perfect, but unfortunately it looks like that yarn disappeared when I moved house.

Thank you for replying! The post you linked to is incredibly helpful!

Now I'm just down to choosing my print, and I'm certainly going to make a mock-up of the dress first!
I am a textiles student (textile art, however, not fashion) so I hope hanging around with fashion students and crafty dressmaker types has rubbed off on me a little, in regards to at least following the instructions.

I've got this pattern, Vogue 1043. The only fabrics I seem to like are quilting cottons, because I love cute prints, and I find a lot of dressmaking fabrics boring or plain or ugly (at least, the selection at my local fabric shops, and much of the UK-based online stores I've seen in the past). Would a quilting cotton be suitable for making a dress?

When the pattern talks about 'facing', does it mean iron-on fusible stuff, or would it specify an iron-on product?

I've never made clothes before, in case it isn't obvious!

Thank you so much for all your help and suggestions!  Your first couple of links are coming up 'page not found' for me, but I'll have a look around for pieces similar to the BurdaStyle link.  I think sometimes it's difficult to accept making mistakes, because you want to be awesome at stuff straight away, but using bedsheets is such a great (super inexpensive) idea I'd never thought of before!
It makes me sad that the dress was Fugged, because I think it could be really stunning.
Thanks again!  If I run in to any problems, Craftster won't be able to get rid of me, don't worry about that!

I love this dress worn by Lisa Edelstein (featured, sadly for me, at Go Fug Yourself here).  Maybe not with so much cleavage squishing, and maybe in a fabric that flows differently, but I love it. 

Can you guys think of any patterns for similar sorts of things?  And does it look like something someone with no clothes making experience could tackle?
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Mounting in an embroidery hoop? on: October 30, 2009 08:57:04 AM
Just a short question that I can't seem to find a solid answer on: How do you mount a finished piece of stitching in an embroidery hoop, ready to hang on a wall (for example, like this & this where it's all clean around the edges, and covered at the back as well)?
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Technique that I have no idea what it is. on: October 19, 2009 02:54:36 PM
Upon further investigation of my stupidly-organised show site plan, and some Google-fu, it was a couronne stick, used in needle lace.  Some of her pieces were absolutely lovely, likethis.

Thank you so much for your help.  It was such an obscure craft to be searching for!
