1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Scent Searching.....HELP on: August 11, 2010 06:46:17 AM
I have been looking for months for this one fragrance and I hope someone out there can point me in the right direction.  I've been looking for "Black Cat" either in a fragrance oil or if someone knows the recipe for it.  So if anyone has any idea as to where I might find it please let me know.  Thanks a million!!
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / HELP WITH SINGER THREADS?????!!!! PLEASE? on: June 15, 2008 04:37:56 PM
Does anyone know anything about Singer Fusion thread?  The lady at JoAnn's told me that if the item that was sewn with this type of thread was washed and/or dried it would fall apart.  However, this thread its 70% Poly and 30% Cotton.  I think that she doesn't know what she's talking about but then again I could be wrong.  They also sell it in like multipacks at Kmart and places like that.  Which you would think that if they sell it as a general thread in a discount department store that it would be usable for anything and able to be washed as well.  Does anyone have any idea or experience with this type of thread?

Thank you for all your help

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Super Easy Bag with Tutorial---*Revised* New Tute and Post IMG HEAVY!!! on: February 25, 2008 12:09:25 PM





Ok so many had a problem figuring out the previous tutorial and I jumped on the French website and figured it out.  (Speaking some french did come in handy)  This is my first tutorial ever so be kind.

Materials:  Fabric for the shell and lining
               Thread (of course)
               1 Button


1.  Cut 2 pieces of fabric shell/lining 24" x 24"




2.  Mark and make your 4 button holes using both peices of fabric wrong sides together.




3.  Make fold "A".  The button holes should be right on the edge of that fold.  Do this for both sides marked "A"



4. Sew "A", then run a ribbon or what ever your tie for the sides will be through each button hole with a saftey pin.



This is what each side will look like once the ribbon or tie has been ran through each button hole




5.  Make fold "B" and sew, make sure the ends are open so that you can run the straps through.



6.  Cut out your straps and sew them 3" wide and 39" long. (that's easy enough so I didn't take any pictures of that)

7.  Run your straps through the tunnel made from fold "B"



8.  Sew the ends of the straps together to form the loop.  Do this for both sides.



9.  Okay so this is what it looks like when you got all that pelimanary stuff out of the way before doing the final touches. (please excuse my mess to the right and left  Embarrassed )



10.  Scrunch the sides and tie off.



11.  Hide the strap seams!  Et Viola!  C'est Fini!!!  (mine isn't quite finished I need a button and can't find one in my craft heap.)
