probably obvious- but you can pinch them off vintage clothing that you come across (of course saving the material for furture use!)

nice one.  I just did my first felting too and made a hot water bottle cozy- I'll post soon.
Can't believe you're only a newbie sewer- must be a natural!
113  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re:quilt from button-down shirts on: January 13, 2004 01:56:33 PM
Condolences about your dad, weahltheow....I love the shirt idea. I've seen an example of a quilt using squares from shirts and a shirt in the middle- aha found it: http://www.bevividnow.com/QuiltShirt.htm

perhaps a bit gawdy, but you get the idea.   Perhaps an embroidered square based on a favorite photo? Jenny from www.Sublimestitchin g.com  is all about that...and I believe a fellow craftster pal.

good luck,

My username denotes my approach to crafting which is to say that I often have to 'begin again' , usually after I've made that final cut or last stitch whilst tired, pressured or pissed (off) and then have to completly start over- I was like this as a kid and thought I would grow out of it, but I'm 31 now and tho my impatience rarely manifests itself in a temper tantrum, I still have to begin again all too often...it's also my getcrafty name tho i rarely post there anymore having found the c-ster.
 
More, more names!

until recently we've been able to avoid the evil happy face (and goodgirl, please let me know when you stage your musical- brilliant...) here in the UK but it's here and it's in the form of ASDA

I remember when my folks visited here and couldn't believe how expensive everything was compared to Mid-America, where I originated from, and I think there favorite day out is when we ate at a Pizza Hut in the Mall and went for groceries at ASDA afterwards.  My dad was trying to encourage me to GET A CAR so I could drive ASDA to save 30pence on toothpaste.  I just couldn't get through to them, it's like it's part of the average American psyche (and I don' t consider any Craftsterpal to be average! )
I tend to follow yardenxanthe & leah's creed of just trying to reduce desire and accumulation of just things, stuff- and I find forcing myself to use up what I have and recycle makes for necessity mothering invention....

It's brilliant. And inspiring.  

Did you buy all new fabric? And I always wonder how to do that last quilting stitch- you know the fine one that goes through all the layers?

Very cool- and I like the slightly subversive squids....

anyone ever tried the cousin to the mitten? somewhat more difficult-to-sew glove?

Fan-f*cking-tabulous, UI....

I wonder if they have similar freebies via the Royal Mail? Debzy, anyone?

When I first used it I was surprised by how much it  did help give a bag shape and made it look more 'professional' for lack of a better word.  I've only used the iron on and it's fine- there's often bit and pieces in bargain bins so check there if you want to experiment.
