So many amazing projects! Shocked I'm always impressed by the awesome things my fellow Craftsters make!
I'm on tablet, which is a pain to type on, so I've copy-pasted the details of what I've been doing from the Nerd Battles thread:
I've crocheted two purses and a tote and am currently working on two more purses, one of which is for a small child. I've also crocheted another hat and am making a few roses.
It will probably be another few days or so before I post up pics because I'm going to be sewing myself a housecoat to take to the hospital with me next month (my fiance bought me a pattern because the housecoats we found for sale were ugly; he says it's not stash feeding because it was needed).
I may also sew up a few dark colored cotton gowns to pack, too, since the pattern includes a gown.
Oh and I'm going to be sewing curtains for my baby's room. My sister bought me some awesome Marvel heroes print fabric on sale at Walmart just so I could make him some awesome curtains. Grin There's more than enough of the fabric so I'll probably see a purse or something for my sister with what's left over.

I'm so glad (but sad for you-100 hats! Shocked Tongue) that I have someone who understands the pain of being generous but in doing so has to create multiples of the SAME EXACT THING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And the pattern was easy-peasy...I was just getting bored...it seemed like I would never get done!

Is that a Dottie Angel frock? It is nicely done. I bought the pattern but haven't touched it yet. Would you say it runs true to size?

Yes, it is, and I think it runs pretty true to size.

So many lovely things made out of yarn.  I know you are tired of hats.  But...  I think I would be super happy to know how to do that. 

I have zero skill in the yarn-ish arts, which makes me sad, because I ADORE yarnish arts.

Actsofcraftiness I love your vinyl creations! I started playing with it myself! Where do you get your heat transfer stuff from??

« Reply #438 on: February 09, 2016 04:54:03 AM »

ActsofCraftiness - do you use an iron or heat press for the HTV? I have been using my iron, but the results don't seem to stay a crisp after washing  Huh If you have a heat press can you tell me what kind/model you have and why you like it? I have been looking at purchasing one, butthere are too many choices!

snowyangel & plaidpineapple - Thanks!

Lindy - Thanks! Im definitely addicted to vinyl and my machine. Its so much fun. I get most of my HTV from www.thevinylspectrum.com or http://heattransfervinyl4u.com/.

texscrapper - I use a heat press. I only make heat transfer vinyl stuff for family and friends, but the cost of the press has definitely been worth it. I used an iron for one project, and knew I needed to get a heat press.

There are a lot of presses to choose from, so deciding can be very overwhelming. I ended up getting one from www.sunie.com. They have great reviews and come with a longer warranty than most you can buy cheaper through Amazon or eBay. This is the model I chose. Its actually cheaper now than when I bought it! Shipping is free and pretty fast. Mine was delivered less than 24 hours after I bought it (going from NV to CA). I've had it for about 8 months, and I love it.

I also recommend getting pressing pillows. You put them inside the garment/bag/etc. while pressing. You need the right heat and pressure to get the HTV to adhere correctly. They really help with items that have seams that can get in the way while pressing (like baby onesies), which can mess with the pressure and keep the HTV from actually being pressed. I also use a Teflon sheet over the design.
