21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Too hot an iron! on: February 24, 2010 06:54:17 PM
Hi there folks,
Has anyone ever used too hot an iron and melted a patch of their fabric on a newly constructed garment?
If you have, can it be fixed? I tried wetting it and stretching it immediately afterwards but it didn't really do much.
My daughter just finished making a blouse/top out of polyester stretch satin and I was helping her out by ironing the seams flat so she could wear it to a special event at school tomorrow! What a good mom I am-NOT!
I do have enough fabric to rip out the front sleve and put a new one in but not before tomorrow at 8am!
I am praying she doesn't notice before she goes to school! It is right at the elbow bend so I hope she creases it with bending her arm before she notices it!
I will own up to it afterwards! lol

22  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Snowmen! on: December 05, 2009 04:30:04 PM
I made these Snowmen for a craft bazaar that was hosted where I work.
Their bodies are made from recycled sweaters and their hats are dollar store socks.
I will be on the look out for odd socks that my daughter loses for next year's batch of Snowmen.

This may be taken out of here but I'm not exactly sure where to put it so...

I am in the process of creating minature dolls and need some help with names of roving to ask for when buying for the dolls hair.

I am looking for the wool that has soft yet kinky curls, not so much the really curly curls that you would find on baby dolls but curls almost as though you have crimped it.

The question is, what animal produces such fibres? Suggestions?

26  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Christmas presents for the nieces and nephews on: January 05, 2009 04:55:53 AM
Two granny gowns and two pairs of jammie bottoms. Doesn't my oldest niece look impressed! She loves horses so thats why it is made with horse flannel. The younger one has dragonflies in pastels, the wings glitter. The two boys liked their jammie bottoms but the youngest put them on saying, "where's the top?" Took a bit to explain there were only bottoms! Guess next year I have to supply the tops too! lol

Hope you like them.

28  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / HELP! Tudor style gown-Pictures of finished dresses on: November 26, 2008 05:32:58 AM
Hi all!

I am making two tudor gowns for a presentation my daughter and her friend are doing in highschool World Religion class.

I have the tops almost done, my problem is the skirts. How would you do the waist band to keep some-what within their tailoring back then? I have thought of doing a solid waist with buttons and loops (no button holes). I have also thought of lacing, but that could pose a problem with them getting in and out of these dresses at school.
I have the top gathered on butchers string because of the weight, just trying to figure out what to do with them now.

Thanks for any help you can give!

29  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Help with baby sweater pattern please!!! on: September 30, 2008 05:42:17 PM
Okay, this is what the pattern says to do:

With separate length of MC and RS facing, join yarn with sl st in sp between 6th and 7th V stfrom left front edge.

Ch 5. Miss next 11 V st (left sleeve). Join with sl st in sp between last V st and next V st. Fasten off.

Miss center 13 V st (back). With separate length of MC and RS facing join yarn with sl st in sp between last V st and next. Ch 5. Miss next 11 V st (right sleeve). Join with sl st in sp between last V st and next V st. Fasten off.

Are we confused yet? If not, am I only adding 5 chains between what would be the front and back of the sleeve?

I am using pattern 1 from the Bernat Precious Pieces book, its the one on the cover. (book # 542018) I am at the end of row 8 and now dividing for the body.

I gave up for tonight my brain is mush.
Thanks for any help you can give.

30  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Who would make yarns to sell to a store? on: September 26, 2008 04:07:38 AM
I hope this question doesn't get me into trouble here but, of you spinners, who would be interested in having your yarns purchased in larger quantities to be sold in a specialty yarn store?

Is it something spinners would even consider?

Thanks
