That is terrific! It really shows that patience and attention to detail makes for a great garment!

Um, that's "pedal-pushers." Because you can ride your bike in them and not worry about getting pants stuck in the chain.
I know, I'm a dork.
13  Georgia / Georgia: Central / Scrapbooking/Faithbooking Bible Study in Buckhead, starts 8/11 on: August 01, 2007 10:32:48 AM
The Ruth Guild  (LWML) of Lutheran Church of the Ascension in Buckhead is starting a scrapbooking bible study based on the book "God's Good Gifts." We are having our first meeting at 10 in the morning on Saturday, August 11. Please message me directly for registration info, supply list, and directions. All women and girls over age 7 are welcome.  We hope to start meeting monthly, so if you can't make it to the first meeting, go ahead and register anyway.
And if you are just thinking of starting a similar project at your own church or other group, please feel free to drop in and observe!
14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Newbie Looking For Direction.... on: July 27, 2007 07:06:48 AM
I would go to the library and take a gander at their sewing books (usually sitting on the shelf all forsaken). Even an old sewing book will have lots of drawings/pictures of certain types of sewing techniques and descriptions (such as-- what is a shawl collar, why do clothes have linings, etc).
Then, even though it costs money, I would take a sewing class. They generally provide you with a machine. You will learn good technique and it will help you decide if you even want a sewing machine. Some people prefer to just do small hand-sewing projects.
Finally, if you want an inexpensive sewing machine, my recommendations are as follows: 1. borrow one from a relative or 2. buy one USED.  I really wouldn't bother much with a hand-held sewing machine except for exceptionally tiny craft projects as they tend to be an enormous pain.
15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Do the fitted! on: July 27, 2007 06:58:00 AM
I would go with the fitted. It will actually make you look more slender, show off your new figure, and with a belt it will look very modern. The patterns you selected don't look at all frumpy. If you want frumpy, you would need one of those giant rectangular jumpers they always carry in the Land's End catalog that make even the models look like blobs.
16  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Anyone try "God's Good Gifts" book? Bible Study/Scrapbooking on: July 24, 2007 07:05:53 PM
Our church's women's guild is planning to use a scrapbooking bible study called "God's Good Gifts" (we're in Atlanta, and I will post deets about it in a few days in the Georgia section... anyhoo...). I am wondering if anyone familiar with this book or who has done a similar crop/bible study has any advice, input, etc?

Perhaps the gal in the embroidered blouse should consider crafting herself a bra. Or something.

You can also make doll dresses from them, or give them to someone who likes to make dolls.

Ah, I have been to Fayetteville, mainly to shop at the JoAnn's. How crafty of me.
