1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: what brand of sewing machine you used? on: March 15, 2013 01:57:59 PM
I use a mechanical machine-- a Bernina 830 record that I got on ebay. I used to use an old electronic Viking but it broke. Once I learned how to figure out the whole bobbin thing, I found the mechanical machine easier to use.

This certainly could be a toughie as most doll clothes patterns are for girl dolls. I would definitely find a brand of doll that is about your little fellow's size and google patterns specifically for that doll (perhaps American Girl or some such thing?). Maybe you can find some jean patterns at least. A "western" outfit for a girl doll might work.
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Digital crap on: March 09, 2011 06:23:44 PM
One major problem I've had with irons is that after I (inevitably) knock the darn thing to the floor a few times, the digital control crap doesn't work anymore. So the iron will change the setting it is on mid-task, or won't go to a certain setting, etc. If at all possible, try to find an iron that is controlled with a knob, not buttons. And look for the least amount of fancy technological hoo-ha because it always winds up breaking.

You know what's scary? Those pants might have had a matching jacket at some point.
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / String for string games on: February 19, 2011 10:54:55 AM
What kind of string is best for doing string games (cat's cradle, etc.)? I got a copy of the Klutz Press string game book at the thrift store and would like to teach my daughter and her girl scout troop some games. The book didn't have its string anymore and I am definitely NOT going to order replacements from the Klutz catalog. Nonetheless, I am willing to spend a little money for something better than acrylic yarn, if necessary. Any recommendations?

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, most questions do seem to be about dollmaking.

This is a great example of simple lines and a busy pattern work together beautifully.

I really like that top-- are you in for making that matching kerchief?

I discard them the way I do any medical "sharps" by putting them in a plastic container like an old cottage cheese container or something, and then tossing. I don't want my preschoolers rummaging through the trash and running around the house with them. The way they did that half-eaten chicken leg. Children can be gross.

Okay, that is an awesome Kevin Spacey.

That looks great on you! Do you like the 4-h program? I have heard it does a great job of teaching sewing.
