I think it's absolutely commendable to use Morrissey for inspiration....uh oh, we may be showing the generation gap I think...

They're lovely Ananda....

silly querie: are you using an electirc drill with a tiny bit to go through the domino? or is that just too modern- I'm having a hard time visualising holding the domino, the drill, my fingers steady, potential accident victim....

(I too, who to needs to 'give' to this board instead of just take, take, taking...soon, soon, I promise!)

at www.melimade.com, fellow crafty girl meli use to have a tutorial for these under her DIY section but the link seems to be broken - but as she's been alerted she might have it sorted soon but as I recall it's the same as how Debzy describes above.

Great tutorial Jordy, much better than ol' McCalls- my first bag I just couldn't figure out the logistics but once you've done one and turned it inside out, my brain sort of caught up with a triumph 'a-ha'!

Love your choice of fabrics and your cute kitty applique- is it a patch or one you came up with yourself?

I've seen green, brown, even yellow olives, but no pink ones- good luck with your label!

Gooooorgeous.....lo vely spring dress! Great example- where did you score your material, Wiz?

One of my 2004 mandates is not buying any brand-new material until a) i use up what I have b) instead use vintage/thrift/existing materials from whatever their current manifestation happens to be into reusable items

Some of that embroidery and crochetwork is absolute art- really it should be framed and displayed as such, no? But seriously, there is soooo much out there just looking for a new home and if creatively reused can look fresh again

I don't have any pics right now but will put my digicam where my mouth is and get back to you.
126  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re:I'm looking for a cute apron pattern on: January 09, 2004 12:58:53 PM
I've used other thrift store granny type aprons as a template for making my own- you can just pull them apart and use as a pattern, adding seam allowance.

My own grandma always had on an apron and it was a way for her to reuse the bits and pieces of scrap material- she'd likely roll over in her grave if she thought we were buying patterns for aprons!

I've made on recently in a kitch style and will post a pic soon.  Good luck this weekend and Jan, I'm with you: Focus & Do....in my case, quit surfing and start sewing!

So sorry to hear about your cat- that scene you described sent me shivers! Hope you guys are doing ok now-

It's very sweet that you're making magnets in her honor - very cool.

Debzy right- don't pull let those little feed-dogs do the work for ya.  I also think using zig-zag stitch helps- allows for a bit more movement- and if you know anyone with a Serger, let them be your best friend for your stretch fabric sewing...

That's great- would make a cool Christmas gift- one could include fun compilations...them e could be adapted for babies, weddings birthdays and all sorts of milestone life-affirming events (or hey, a funeral if you deem suitable or have a dark sense of humor....)

They're lovely- be sure to show off your lining in the tutorial- waiting with bated breath.....
