1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Sequined pasties - relatively safe for work :P on: January 24, 2009 07:25:56 AM
Tadaaa! made with white felt and strung sequins, hotglued onto felt Smiley


Size reference


Amazingly, I did not burn myself on the glue gun, but I burnt myself on the grill this morning instead Tongue
Would include action shots, but I'm poorly today and really can't be bothered Sad


C&C appreciated Smiley
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / "Alice in wonderland" necklace - with pocket watch! on: January 22, 2009 02:54:55 PM
Cut up an old (non-silver) chain, and put beads and stuff Smiley


Some of the little beads are hearts, I wanted to make some little teacups out of clay, but I'm not so hot at clay Sad

I bought the pocket watch from Spain, but it was juts on a crappy plain chain when I bought it



Comments and critisism welcome Smiley

3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Stitch tension screwed up on: November 07, 2008 07:47:17 AM
Okay, lets say the blue is the fabric, the green is the underneath stiches, and the red is the top stitches - why do the red stitches do this?




Any way that I adjust the tension wheel, it's fine for the first few stitches, then it just ends up as a line of string, with the underneath stitches going all the way through the fabric.
Then the fabric gets wrinkly and I stop sewing out of frustration.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Pencil dress, Late forties?? on: September 19, 2008 09:25:28 AM
I made this at the start of the year, the first wearable item of clothing I've ever made. I've only just got round to taking photos of it  Tongue
And please excuse my squinty, tired face, I've been at school all day...


Fabric:


The front:


The back:


I can't remember what pattern it was, I'll check later, but it was really simple Smiley

Pattern is by Simplicity, number 3539
My scanner is "having a day off", so here's a crappy phone picture:


It's really quite old - If you look on ebay, alot of old simplicity patterns have the same skirt-part, so you'd just need to figure out the top, I guess Smiley
