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.....lovely 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. xxBA
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... xx
That's great- would make a cool Christmas gift- one could include fun compilations...theme 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....) xx
