Re: February Use Your Stash Chatter thread

I think the pads look great! I can't imagine trying to make one of those! They look amazing, especially for a first time ever!!

I hope the longies end up coming out the way you want...I have no advice though :/ Never owned a pair, and certainly never made a pair.

Made two more bags and a pair of pajama pants for ds1. I woke up and started sewing...I just had ds1 bring his work into his room, and helped him along as I sewed. Still have more school to do though, that I can't sew during, so that is it until tonight, and I have Bible study, so I am just hoping to get a few more bags done if I can. (I hate working with pul...I don't like not being able to iron it!!

Thanks! I can't wait to see pictures of all of your bags! I am still intimidated by zippers and PUL.

And since I'm selling the pads I don't count them, right?

I'm almost at the point where you switch to the legs (following the itchy fingers pattern i found on ravelry) and I think the rise looks like it will measure 3" longer than I meant to. I guess I didn't measure my gauge swatch very acurately . I know he can grow into them but it's my first try and I wanted him to HAVE a pair lol

3" extra in rise is kind of a lot. Here's a suggestion though. You can always fold the waistband over and sew it down with yarn and put elastic in it to cut down on the rise, then if you need the extra rise later you can just undo it and put the drawstring in.

Point question here. I ordered some custom dyed yarn a while ago, but the dyer was out of the base I wanted so she is just getting it done. Do I have to count it against myself for the game since I am just getting it this month, but ordered it last month?

No, it is not counted against you if your purchased last month. I have a small package of fabric coming I bought in Jan, but I do not have to deduct points.

Because they are small but have a zipper... 2 per finished object?

(Sorry... Been gone most of the day as DS had 2 dr appts. )
