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
2  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
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / I need a manly, quick and preferably free afghan pattern! on: January 22, 2010 06:45:43 PM
So, I want to make ma' boo a cozy afghan for his birthday (which is February 4th). It needs to be pretty quick because his birthday is coming up really fast, and not made out of any really expensive yarn because I'm broke. I'm thinking one of those really airy afghans with loose stitches would be really great for this, but I can't seem to find a patten like that. Actually, suggestions for a really airy stitch itself would be great too, because I could just repeat that until I got something the size and shape of a blankie. Thanks!
4  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Ideas for a set of two paintings? on: January 10, 2010 10:59:26 PM
Hello! So, my boyfriend and I want to start a project together. We live far apart, so what we want to do is, each take a canvas (that are the same size) and paint something on it. I'll take the one he makes home and he'll take mine. But we want them to look good together so that when we move in with each other in a few months the pictures can hang together! So what could we paint? I was kind of thinking it would be cute if we cut something in half and each painted a half, like the front and back of an elephant or something. Or, maybe he paints a jar of peanut butter and I paint a jar of jam. What ideas do you guys have?

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Choosing fabric for a low backed, strapless dress on: October 28, 2009 02:16:10 PM
Soooo I'm going to be starting a strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline and quite a low back. I haven't gotten very far on this project because I've stalled out on the fabric buying stage! This is going to be a floor length dress, so it's going to be heavy. This makes me think that I'm going to have to buy some fairly sturdy fabric, so that it will have enough integrity to hold itself up. However! This would most likely mean it would also be quite heavy, and the train wouldn't drape very nicely. Oh yeah, it's going to have a train too. Is this even going to be possible, or will I have to go with straps of some sort? Thanks for reading!
7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Dying Lace on: October 21, 2009 06:08:50 PM
So for a sewing class (it's a correspondence class... in case that becomes relevant) I'm making a dress. I want to do it in a champagne, taupey color, and my plan is to do a layer of lace over a layer of something else that's solid, but drapes nicely since I'm doing a small train. So the plan is to get some white lace and white unknown-solid-colored-fabric and dye them. What I need to know is if I can get relatively inexpensive lace that I will be able to dye, so not polyester or otherwise plastic-y, and possibly where I could get this. If you guys could give me suggestions on what kind of fabric I should use for the solid, that would be hugely appreciated too! Thanks!
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Organizer's partner flaked! on: September 14, 2009 12:09:05 PM
Alrighty, so this was my first time organizing a swap. I was lucky enough not to have only one flaker, who happened to be my partner! So I was wondering: am I required to get an angel for myself since I was technically a participant as well, or is it alright if I just keep the things I made for her (since I haven't sent) and give myself feedback for organizing only?
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Anybody know of a pattern like this? on: July 28, 2009 11:04:30 AM

I lurve this dress, but I do not lurve the color combos it comes in, so I would like to make it. The construction looks fairly straightforward, however, I'm not that good with draping and stuff like that, so I would have a hard time getting the train right. I was wondering if you guys knew of any patterns that looked similar. I'm not concerned about the neckline, because I don't like the way the neckline looks in the picture and I could tweak that part anyways. And I figure that it would be pretty simple to layer the lace over jersey, so those instructions don't need to be in the pattern. Thanks!
