1  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Re: Is it possible to make shoe soles? In any way, shape, or form? on: November 29, 2012 06:18:57 PM
Old inner tube rubber?   Saw some rubber on rolls online when I did a quick search.  Heavier leather is what they used for shoe soles when I was a kid (1950's and '60's) but not sure what kind....  I know the soles of my new black flats always felt like very heavy compact grey suede.   Let me know if you figure it out as I have been wanting to put soles on some 'room shoes' I have patterns for.

That isn't the one, but it is so good I bookmarked it!!.  The one I am looking for is  tee-shirt with a square neck, two different types of sleeves and the front  was cut diagonally, the stripes turned and sewn in diagonally.  Very CUTE!.  I am bummed, I even got out the tee shirt I have been saving for just the right re-fashion!!

Thanks for the new tute though!!

I am SO frustrated!!  I was surfing the net last week came across a totally adorable little girls tee shirt tute.  It was square necked, made from a repurposed striped tee shirt and had a section with the stripes going diagonally.  I thought I bookmarked it.  I want to make it today and cannot find the tutorial!!

Anyone seen one like this anywhere???

Hopefull   Huh Roll Eyes Smiley

Okay.  I really don't care what brand it is, I just  want to figure out what kind of 'stuff' to use with it.  From your post I can try different long shaft feet.  I am not sure I would ever even use the cams, but it would be fun to find some that fit, any ideas?  The Kenmore ones my husband bought were way too large.  They were pink, if that gives any clue.  Not even sure how to figure out how to get it to do zig zag, but that should not be too hard. 

Thanks for the input!!

Thanks for the suggestion.  I actually checked Pattern Review before I posted on Craftster.  I truly have posted to every place I can think of.  Even joined the 2 Yahoo vintage Kenmore sewing machine groups!!  lol...I am turning over those rocks like crazy.  The only nibble I got was the one that referred me to OU Drama dpt.  I left an e-mail for the person I was referred to, but it is a week-end and she is surely not at work.  Maybe she will get back to me next week.

I will keep trying, but I am nothing but frustrated at this point.  It dones't Really matter, now it's just the fact that no-one seems to know!!

There must be more than one of these little machines out there!!

This is getting so frustrating, I think I need to just leave it alone for abit.  It is not worth the frustration .. she is a sweet little machine, humms when she runs!!  I like her, and I will just play with her until I figure her out.  I will just keep trying until I figure out the right attachments/cams.  It will be an adventure!!

Yes it has a long shank.  I measured after your first post.  I am not sure if the post I wrote that gave the following information got to this group or not.  I had so much trouble getting the pics in!!  Technotard...a definition of my computer abilities...but I am learning!

The reason we thought it was a Kenmore is because on the front lip it is stamped in yellow paint "Kenmore #SW 3_2...not sure what the middle number is maybe another 2.  Beside that the ingraved # is JZ 51426  Under the machine molded into the metal is a large GNS.  Other than that there is a decal that says City of Los Angeles Building and Safety Department. Nothing else that might hint at her place of manufacture.

There are two screws that were obviously meant to hold a brand plate of some kind on the front to the left of the dials.  Hub. said they had never been used...screws are in place, but no sign that they had ever held anything in place.

The art deco type cabinet it came in has a stamp that says Sears Kenmore Model #5662025.

Sigh.  I purchased one set of cams that did not fit, I will try another...the ones I got were too large, so now at least I have a baseline!!

Perhaps this little machines origin will remain a mystery forever!! 

Thank you all for your help!!  marky

Thank You.  I sent her a brief message and a couple of photos.  I hope she will take the time to respond.

Any idea how I would tell which attachments and cams this machine would use??

Thanks!!

It has a straight long shank foot.  Only one foot came with it a zig zag..all purpose foot.  Does that help, or were you just sending general information to the group??

Thanks for the help!!   Cool
