21  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Little Toy Guitar on: November 13, 2007 02:57:48 PM
I've posted a bunch of questions here and I usually get a lot of great ideas.
I'm hoping you guys can help me again.
I'm looking for a pattern or something for making a toy guitar.
Even if no one knows of where I can find a pattern,
any ideas on how I could go about making a guitar plushie would be great.

I understand why you would feel the need to price your product as you do.
I too sell handmade items and I know that it's important to take into consideration not only money spent on supplies
but also time spent.
I've never seen how much hand-painted glass eyes go for.
I do know that regular glass eyes are expensive so I suppose hand-painted ones might go for more.
But I thought your safety eyes are acrylic.
I assumed that would make a difference.
The acrylic safety eyes I buy are about fifty cents for three pairs.

In any case good luck selling your product.
I hope you are able to find the right place to sell them.
They are very pretty.

That's awesome!  My nephew, who is also 8, also loves Doctor Who!  Last year for Halloween he was the Empty Child.  I should totally make him a Doctor Who toy. He loves Daleks, so maybe I'll figure out how to make one.

This place has some awesome Doctor Who patterns:


Including patterns for Dalek toys

Yeah, at least with garter stitch I can do it while watching TV or something.
I don't even have to look at my needles most of the time.

I just added another Dr. Who related project to my list.
I LOVE the tardigan.
I'm surprised I haven't come across it before!
Luckily a sweater was already on my list of things to do this winter. I just hadn't picked out a style or anything yet.
Well, I've picked one out now.

And I love the idea of a basic doctor doll that could be made to "regenerate".
I'm so glad I posted here.
You all think of so many cool things

That is a really awesome bag!
I thinks it cool how the design stands out.
I've never tried needle felting before.
Once I finish my HUGE winter knitting/crochet list I'll have to give it a try.

So far the scarf is coming a long really well.
At the rate I'm going I should have it done by next winter...
26  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sock Help Needed on: November 03, 2007 02:28:49 PM
The socks were knit top down. I used 2x2 ribbing around the ankle and leg.
My dad says getting the sock on is kinda tough but once they're on they're comfortable.
I'm not so good with numbers and gauges and stuff.
With most of the things I make a gauge isn't important.
I'm a little afraid of messing around with the pattern I have unless I try it out with some spare yarn first.
I didn't really want to do that because I'm kind of in a hurry to get my winter knitting done seeing as how I have a lot of it.
I was hoping someone would know of a sock pattern that would fit a men's size 9 1/2 wide shoe with a 12" wide ankle.
Kind of an odd think to ask for I guess.

27  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Sock Help Needed on: November 01, 2007 04:35:53 PM
I'm trying to make my dad a new pair of socks.
The last pair I made were the basic 56 stitch 56 row socks.
The foot fits perfectly but it's too tight for him around the ankle.
I bought some Lion Brand Magic Stripes a few days ago because there was a free pattern on the label for a pair of adult socks.
The pattern only required one skein (I bought two just in case I messed up; I've only made one pair of socks) but the size around the leg is 8". He needs about 12"
I can't seem to find any simple patterns for the right size that doesn't require too much yarn.
I've seen a bunch of sock formulas for creating custom socks but I'm a little nervous about doing that.
Is there any advice anyone could give me?

I'm finally gonna be able to make that huge scarf that the Tom Baker Doctor used to wear. He's my favorite Doctor so far.
I've been busy making other things for my family and friends so haven't made much for myself yet.
But winter is so very close here in Maine and I need some warm wear.
I've been knitting/crocheting for more than 3 years now and I've never made a scarf.
It's about time I did. And what could be better for my first scarf (which could actually be more like a wrap due to it's enormous size) than one from Doctor Who?

Oh and I'm planning on making Rose's wrist warmers. Sad episode but pretty accessory.

AND I just found a pattern for a knitted or crocheted TARDIS!!!
Yay for me

I am going to be very busy...

That is really cool

I love this blanket!!
You did an awesome job.
It is definitely one of the coolest things I have EVER seen.
Almost everyone in my family would love something like that.
We were all raised as Trek lovers.
