To display a button you will need to save [as a picture file] the appropriate button on the side bar by right clicking on it and choose "save as" from the drop down menu. You will then need to uplaod it onto a photo hosting program such as Flickr or photobucket. And then within that program find the URL code and display this code in your template.
Thats what I do, someone may have an easier way, if so could you please use the support group to explain by starting a new thread!
To display the pledge, you should be able to just copy and paste the pledge in the sidebar or the fine print blog and paste into the html version of the "CREATE" posting page of your blog (for Blogger users) For Typepad etc, I'm sure you have a similiar version.
OK, if your link doesn't work or is not yet displayed, please bear with us, it'll take a few weeks to get the whole lot ironed out, and as before please remember that we do have other committments as well as supporting the refashionista revolution!
so, i've been doing little things as we're moving my boyfriend in, and the house is in shambles. here is a before of one of the sweaters.
the sweater is missing two buttons in the middle, but has two buttons at the top that are on the inside, so i'm moving them. easy enough to do in the heat of july in nebraska, and also doesn't take a lot of effort to find the materials in all the house mess.
i'm also learning to knit socks! very fun, very stressful, but so worth it! pics are on my website.
as soon as we get the dining room cleaned out a little better, and the heat breaks (should happen by tuesday for both) i'll be sewing again. i'm excited to be able to bust through a few easy hems before getting down to the nitty-gritty of it!
I accidentally logged into the wrong blog, the old one I had, so I think you need to change the link to me. So sorry! My new URL is knitplanesandschool.blogspot.com or something like that.
Alright, by the way, I'm new and I'm doing the 2-month pledge. I've already bought some fabric, even! I've got some t-shirt material, and I plan on making a tank top for my halloween costume (a superhero called Super Ska Girl), and I also made a pair of armwarmers for said costume. I also got some plaid flannel to make a skirt. And I remodeled a shirt into a halter in late June. :D
I'm 14. :D My name is Cate. I like to knit and sew, and I'm really absent-minded at times, and I dunno where the digital camera is, but if I find it, I'll take a picture of me wearing my armwarmers. And my remodeled shirt. 'cos I'm rockin' and all that.
And I listen to the Aquabats a lot, so any funky phrases are pretty sure to come from there. I.E. zippy zippy dudes, fearsome midget pirates, fashion zombies, super rad, that sort of thing. And I say rockin' a lot. So you know.
Hi, i'm Clair and i'm a new refashionista. I have actually been doing this for ages, but finaly decided i may as well sign myself up lol.
My first show off is a dress that i made last week. I have discovered the joys of shirring. This dress was made from a vintage sheet, and i used a combination of a few patterns to make it up.
Sorry about the dodgy photos, i am completely stuffed up with a viral infection at the moment (lots of snot and phlem, very nasty) So this is about as creative as my photography is gonna get. Which considering i am a professional childrens photographer it's quite depressing.
Anyway, i have pledged myself for 4 months. Look forward to sharing with you all. I love looking at this blog, so many fab ideas.
I used the Betsy Ross Everday Shoulder bag pattern, and used the fabric from a skirt I thrifted at the opshop for a couple of dollars. It's a thick wool fabric. The fabric for the handles and the lining are from my stash. This will be my everyday bag now, I love it!
This was an awesome tiger costume. I'm gonna miss it - but now I can wear it any day, not just Halloween!
The pattern is Simplicity 4505, same as my red skirt. It's more complex than most skirt patterns (it's got godets and a yoke and a lapped zipper) but the first time I made this skirt I just read the directions carefully and worked through them one step at a time. The second time went much, much faster.
I made this purse out of mostly vintage fabrics and a few newer fabrics. The sides and the straps came from a pair of denim capris that I cut down and tried to turn into a skirt (that didn't turn out very well) I lined the bag with muslin backed with iron on interfacing to give the bag a little more body.
The new issue of BUST magazine has some tips on updating thriftstore clothing buys. It also has interviews with a few DIY designers, and a girl who wears clothing that she finds in the trash.
I must confess to buying a heap of new clothes in Spain last week.
I have only to offer in my defence that Sleazyjet are a crowd of £@$%*@±s. They lost my luggage on the way out, we were going to a music festival, and said they'd call as soon as it arrived so that we could arrange a pickup point place in the town (as we were camping, to add to the merriment.)
Finally, thanks to the tenacious receptionist at the hotel we stayed at (after five nights at the festival minus luggage) managed to make six phone calls to all sorts of people at the airport, we found the bag but I got it back 45 mins before we flew home. Even though it had actually been delivered to the aiport the day after we arrived.
So it was buy new clothes or get very very dirty or very very sunburnt. And it galled me, let me tell you...
Finally getting the sewing underway after false starts and tons of unexpected work. Here is a bag which I made from an old scrap of canvas which I painted up with acrylics and decided on a shape which would hold the endless papers which I tote back and forth from the studio to home and back again. No lining as there was no need. Pattern came from the obvious idea that a big envelope would do the trick...
There is velcro underneath the flap but I may rip it out as the canvas is heavy enough on it's own to stay put. Works for me! Hopefully the dress and skirt and refashioned shirts I have been working on will be ready for photo over the weekend... I have been so very very slow.
