I don’t know if you’ll be that excited. It was just a shot of a salad scarf. My face wasn’t even in the photo hehhe.
Hi! People have asked me to do this quite a bit. But I feel like there are so many resources on the internet already, that mine would be redundant. Check out my buddy CraftyMinx’s crochet school. It’s awesome. Written instructions plus videos. She did an amazing job. And it’s free! http://www.craftyminx.com/crochet-school/
Hmm….the very very very first scarf I ever made? Or do you mean, like, the first time I tried to make a foodie-type scarf? Frankly, I can’t really remember either one hehehe. Actually, the first pattern I tried to write down was for a sugar cookie scarf. I don’t think I fell in love with the scarf as much as the fact that I’d written a pattern! I had real Eureka!Hearts! moments with the buttered toast scarf and the green salad scarf when I first started my website :).
I use super saver for some things, because I need that density and that stiffness, but I rarely use it for items being worn, because I find it scratchy. It is cheap, though, and it comes in a million colors! I don’t really make amigurumi so I don’t feel confident in recommending a good yarn for that.
p.s. in the notes, I agree, Caron is soft and not too expensive, and also Red Heart Soft yarn, but they are all kinda shiny and slick. Plymouth Encore Worsted I do use a bit as well, but it is indeed pricier. I think Lionbrand Vanna’s Choice is a good one, too. More expensive than Super Saver, but a bit softer without the “sheen” of other aforementioned yarns.
I never “dreamed of” going to prom, but I ended up going. It was the only highschool dance I went to, and I only went, cuz I was like, what the heck, you’re only in highschool once. I went with arguably the nerdiest boy in school, who asked me by driving to my house and leaving flowers. Can’t say no, right?
I just free-hand it and go at the felt with the scissors! It seems like tracing and stencils should work. Just place the stencil or whatever backwards and trace onto the felt so that your marker will be on the back of the letter, not the front.
This happened when I didn’t have cable TV, so I’ve never seen it. I think I saw a screencap of it once, though. I’ve been trying to find a clip, too!
I will always have a soft spot for Mondo! But I do think the lady who always does the black/white thing designs cool stuff too.
I just watched it!!!!! ;)
Hi! Thanks so much for supporting the book! :) I think I note my favorite glue for pom poms in the book somewhere. I use Aleene’s OK To Wash It, since it is hand-washable (not dry cleanable, tho!) and when it dries, it is not scratchy against my skin. There is a certain way I use it, tho, which I also talk about in my Ravelry group. http://www.ravelry.com/groups/twinkie-chans-crochet-goodies-group
Somewhere fabulous and tropical like Fiji. Egypt to see the pyramids. Kenya for a safari. I should probably see China one day, for real. I’ve popped in for a second or two but have never really SEEN it. There’s probably more than that but those are the top ones in my head right now!
I personally prefer hand-cutting all the felt lettering, as I feel it’s the method that works best and looks cleanest for me, but if you can make a surface crochet or hand stitch look good, I’d say go for it!
Hi there! Thanks so much!! My business still has its ups and downs that I don’t always talk about :). Let’s keep our fingers crossed!!! Try googling and searching on Etsy for “custom clothing labels.” Frankly, I haven’t researched that much on the topic. The first time I got labels made, I was in a rush. I googled and picked the first thing that showed up. They were great quality, but very expensive. Then I tried searching on Etsy, and I found the pricing to be better for me at the quantities I wanted. It all depends on what you want. How many labels, woven vs. printed, how many colors you want, etc. Good luck!
Hi Kira! Tanks for saying hi to everyone!! :D YES, I do intend to post more clothes, but I just need to find enough time to take photos of everything! My intern is starting up again next week, so maybe she’ll help me out :P
Hi, the coral is probably due to the yellow undertones in your hair if you don’t bleach it light enough or tone it to white. If you want a vibrant, neon pink, that will never leave your hair, use Special FX Atomic Pink. Dilute it a lot with conditioner if you don’t want such a neon pink! People have used it super diluted to achieve a pastel, so it’s pretty flexible as far as shade you can produce!
Aw thanks for thinking of me! hehe. Is it the fleece one? If it’s fleece, fleece is really HOT to work out in. I would have swamp ass in no time! :P :X
That’s not my photo, I dunno! I just “heart”ed it! :P I was not really nervous about not wearing makeup on video….just more like, UGH, hehehe ;). The whole experience really makes you try to accept the skin you were born in, which is a tough journey for a lot of us, and I’m still working on it, so you’ll never catch me at the grocery store without eyeliner!
Aw, thanks so much for the kind words. Video is always a little bit nerve-wracking for me! :P I haven’t shown my parents yet, but when I told my mom about it, she already said she wanted a print! hehe
