Tutorials You'd Like To See
Hey everyone! I am in the tutorial mood lately I love seeing things and breaking down how to make them for myself <3 So I figured I'd see if anyone has some ideas for tutorials you'd like to see.
One I'd like to see (and have actually been working on for a while because I haven't found one anywhere) is a tutorial for How -To sew a Felt Tea Cup, and a tea pot, but I think I'll try the tea cup out first, lol.
***If you would like to help out and make a tutorial here is what people are looking for!***

Tea Pot Sewn from Felt
THANKS EVERYONE ^_^
Oh to add to /\ whats above...
Are there any projects that you've seen and really wished they had done it as a How-To instead?
I keep seeing these crocheted cake containers in gift shops. Its a bit hard to explain, but basically they have a bottom and a lid. The crochet is 3D and open and has been stiffened with something to make it hard. Theres a pic on the link below:
I keep thinking that I ought to try making them myself, then post a how-to but I don't think my crochet is up to scratch yet. If anyone has seen a how-to or if any more experienced crocheters have any ideas, it would be mucho appreciated.
In addition to that I'd also love this sunhat as a how-to:
AH! I love that you are doing this. thanks a lot ^_^
I'd really appreciate if you could make a how to on:
I have to ask for help for this as well : http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/board/home/green/5858-making-fixing-shoes-all-help-appreciated-3
I want more tutorials on recipes. In particular, Starbucks recipes. I've yet to find a good one for Green Tea Frappuccino.
Brook- Heres a great tutorial by CatMorley for a lolita cuff You could just change how you add on you lace and embellishments!
With the dress though, I'd have no idea with out a pattern, lol.
And your shoes... I have no expirience there. Lol I have found a few pattens for sewing flats from fabric, and that great sweater boot tutorial here, but besides that I think I'd be scared to mess with a major shoe reconsturction, expecially with heels glued to flip flops like you were saying. Maybe some one else can help you with this one (Ps I left you a note on your thread)
Libby- That crochet cake box is amazing! I wish I knew how to crochet!!! I've been trying to learn but its just no good, lol.
I really want to try out that sun hat though! I am pretty good at sewing and making up patterns, and its always fun! I will def be trying that out this week!
Mrs M.- While I am tring to figure out that sun hat pattern I will totally be trying Green tea Frap. recipes! Hopefully by the end of the week will have a few new tutorials!
On a green tea note, I'd like a recipe for a green tea latte
Hmmmm... I don't think it'll help much, but there's a tutorial on craftster for a classic loli-style dress. It's got strappy sleeves though, although it might help for the skirt part: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=77268.0
The way I'd attack it is to break it down into different components: a circle skirt* (the underneath black layer) with another one on top that has a section cut out; a bandeau-like top for the bodice and then puff sleeves attached to the whole thing. I might draw a picture of what I mean later on, when it's not almost 4am...
*It doesn't actually look like a circle skirt though. Maybe it's just a rectangle of fabric with gathering at the top?
PS. Does Gloom Cookie know that people would like a tutorial? Since she's the one who made the dress, she'll probably have a better idea of how to recreate it
regarding the crochet cake, the crochet part doesn't look too difficult but finding something to help keep the shape while you stiffen would be difficult.
Louise Louisa- Lots of people on her project asked about about a How-To. She said that she just kinda made it up as she went, didnt really use any kind of pattern.
With the cake box its not hard to get things to stay up like that, you can buy craft spray starch that you use after crocheting the item. I even remember in school we used a watered down mod podge to get yarn to stiffen around ballons so we could huge easter eggs. So maybe if you crocheted the box and made a box from cardboard (covered in wax paper) you could put the crocheted cake upside-down and over the cardboard, then paint it with mod podge. But then I dont know if it would be safe for food, lol. so dont store real cake in it!
man, you have spray starch?! i can't find that anywhere!
I'm gonna have to try this now I know it! I think I should be able to get spray starch, if not I'll try the glue idea.
I think that lots of cream and green tea are now on my shopping list for the week I really am going to test out a bunch of recipies YUMMM
If anyone's still interested, I got a little bit carried away and drew about three and a half pages of A4 full of diagrams on how to make the goth/punk loli dress... I've messaged Gloom Cookie just to check that she's okay with me doing it, but if she is then would anyone like me to post the pictures in here? It's not perfect or anything, but I'd like to think it might still be useful :3
Edit: if anyone knows how to convert crochet patterns to knitting ones, I'd love to do this project (http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/crochet-unicorn-hat) but I've never learnt to crochet :3
