1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Owls and trees and fish, oh my! Lots of embroideries! Pic obese~ on: January 25, 2009 05:43:34 AM
A fellow quilter told me that using this mechanic's handsoap called "goop" or "orange goop" would take pencil lines out of fabric.  It's designed to help mechanics get grease off their hands.  Usually can be bought at Farm & Fleet, Menards, Home Depot, etc.  I actually found mine at the dollar store.  It's not the gritty kind - it's like a smooth cream. 

I can't say I've tried it yet for pencil (since that quilt isn't done yet for washing) but I have used it for other gooey price tag removal, greasy spots, stains, etc. and they all come out beautiful.  At minimum it shouldn't hurt the fabric.  I trust it with my quilts.  Good luck!

Congratulations on your first quilt!  It looks great and I love the fabrics you chose for it.  As a new quilter, I wish I had been more aware of my local guilds and joined one of them.  Now, six years later in a new city, I've finally done so.  Quilters are a unique blend of creative, supportive, fun loving and silly.  I have so much fun with my guild, and I learn so much from my fellow members of all levels of experience and knowledge.  You can participate as much or as little as you like and there are members from new quilters to seasoned veterans in the group.  I encourage you to check out and attend a meeting at your local guild.  I wish I had done so sooner.  It's been a great way to share my love for quilting and meet new friends.  Awesome quilt!

This rocks! (pun intended)  Smiley  I love it!  I want to make one so much!  Can you explain how you felt the "stones"?  I don't get it - is there an instructable somewhere?

He's some type of poodle mix, we're not really sure.  When he is groomed short I can see terrier in him too.  He was all black as a puppy with a white stripe on his belly within a year he turned totally grey.

These are so cool!  I love it!  The bowling ball must have been hard to make so evenly rounded and with finger holes.  Where did you get the idea? Did you make the pattern or find one?
7  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Re: SEEK from PsychoLeCemu costume help needed on: March 13, 2008 06:42:13 AM
Could you use either template plastic or reconned plastic from something like a gallon size milk jug sanded and painted?  If you could somehow coat or melt the sharp/cut plastic edge, it would be light weight and strong enough to hold the costume's tails/tentacles/dreds.  As a member of the 4-eyes club, I can't think of anything around your ears that would be excessively comfortable for long hours, but the more lightweight it is the more tolerable I think it would be.  Another option would be paper mache with brown craft paper for strength.  I saw a  costume made on www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-a-cardboard-costume-helmet/ for a helmet made out of paper mache that was incredibly strong and amazingly constructed.  Good luck!  Be sure to post the final results! Smiley

Bitten by the quilt bug I see - another fabric / quilt addict Smiley  You did wonderfully on this quilt - your points all match up, your quilt lays flat.  Great job.  Welcome to the club! Smiley

She's amazing!  I see a master sewer in her future!  She's a natural!  I'm so impressed, it looks very well made and she did so well working with such a difficult fabric.  Great work!

You pretty much kick forehead - how cool is this dress?  I wish I had one.  You did an awesome job with some pretty stinky material to sew with-- I hate stretchy fabrics!  She looks so cute in it.  Rock on momma!
