1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Metallic Leathers? on: February 09, 2011 10:19:08 PM
Hi everyone!
I'm getting into sewing western shirts for horse shows, and they use a lot of metallic leather or lambskin appliques. I've looked all over the internet for shops that carry these and have had no luck. All I've found is an ebay seller, and their shipping is a little unreasonable in my opinion. I only need little pieces no more than a couple square feet, not whole hides or anything. I'm really surprised at how difficult this has been to find, so any help would be very appreciated! Thanks Smiley

I made one of those last night, and it only took me fifteen minutes or so but the effect is really cool! Not only is it a fast project, it's also a pretty inexpensive one.

I think they're really really beautiful. This is just a thought, but maybe they would sell better if the display was switched up a bit. Maybe the red cloth is a bit distracting or something like that. I think you do a really nice job of those so hopefully things will pick up for you Smiley
5  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / What to do with icky yogurt? on: December 04, 2010 12:59:34 PM
Soooooo I bought some really cheap yogurt at the grocery store, because I am a student and have no money. However, the texture is so gross that I can't even eat it. Which brings me to my question: what can I do with a big tub of yucky yogurt? I was thinking I could incorporate it into something else but I do not know what. Also, it's raspberry yogurt. If it was plain or vanilla I think it would be easier to use. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Smiley

You should sorta sketch up a pattern-esque thingy for those without translating abilities on their computers. People like me Wink
7  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Favorite "Weird" Food? on: August 16, 2010 11:53:23 PM
When I was really little, maybe four or five, I used to make myself the most horrendous snacks. My favourite was ketchup sandwiches, which, as the name implies, is just ketchup on a piece of white bread, folded in half. My second favourite was miracle whip spread on a process cheese slice and cut into little squares. If that's not high class, I don't know what is.

As far as I know, you can't get anything under $150 that will trim the seam allowance and encase it just like a serger. Not anything new, anyway. You could get a machine that does a zig zag stitch, which is pretty basic and comes on most machines, and use that to encase the raw edge. The result is similar, but not exactly the same. This page shows you how to do it: http://sewing.about.com/od/techniques/p/zigzagseamfinis.htm

I love them! I got hooked on making something like this a while ago, but instead of embroidery hoops I used cheapo canvases from the dollar store. I really love the flowers, could you share what tute you used to make them?

I put the link for the tute in the first post.  Wink
Arghhh I can't believe I missed it. *facepalm*
Thanks! :p
