91  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Sewing little clothes on: February 24, 2008 05:35:03 PM
Alright all you ladies (and gentlemen, I'm not sexist):

How do I sew itty-bitty dolls clothes without having my machine suck the cloth down my throat plate?  All my doll patterns have a 1/4" seam, and I always seem to get my clothes stuck in the machine.  Any help would be appreciated, as this is very frustrating.

It usually happens with knits.

Thanks!

Those are so ska!  I wish I could pull off something like that.

Looks great!  I really like the picture-into-three-parts shirt.  And good for you for not shaving.  Non-shavers unite!

Agreed--soymilk makers are the bomb.  The hubby and I spent our Christmas money on a SoyQuick maker.  It makes great soymilk and tofu.  The only problem I'm having right now is finding a chunk of time that my wee one doesn't need me.  I don't want to burn him, but I can't leave in the middle of making milk.  *sigh*

"The Passionate Vegetarian" has an AMAZING okra+ tomato recipe.  It's written by Crescent Dragonwagon.

You could sprout them.  Lentil sprouts are sweet.  Soak lentils overnight, drain, and put into a Mason jar with a mesh lid.  Rinse and drain well twice a day until the roots are about 1/4 to 1/2 of an inch long.

Here's a website:

Hi jezebel!  Most shirts are fine for nursing, especially if you're like me and don't care if it all hangs out.  I'm just too cheap to go out and buy shirts that fit me.  But Joann's just had a huge sale, so I'm in the process of making my own stuff.  Wish me luck, I haven't sewn much in the way of clothing.

I haven't had the time to read all the replies to this, but oh well. 

I love this dress, and everything you've made.  I sat down and read all your topics last night.  I've noticed that you always say you have a hard time with bows.  Whenever I want a neat bow I do this:

Make a loop in each of your tails, with tails hanging from the loops (Okay, that's confusing, here's another explanation).

You know when you get ready to tie a normal bow (like when you tie your shoe) you make a loop in one of the tails?  Make a loop in the other tail like the first.

Tie the loops together in a square knot.  The tails are not involved in the knot, just the loops.

Ta-da!  Nice neat bow that never comes untied.

I hope this helps, it took me a long time to figure that one out.

I have no suggestions, but when you finish it, you GOTTA post it!  I want to see this so bad, and maybe copy you.

Keep it long, it makes a lot of difference towards the end.  I made my own pair of jeans when I was pregnant, and I wish I had made the stretchy band longer.

Congrats!
