1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / What stitches are these and what do they do? on: November 08, 2013 02:25:02 AM
Hi, Can anyone please tell me the name of these stitches in this link and their basic function? Im especially confused about the jagged stitches and the one that kind of looks like a blanket stitch (is it a blanket edge stitch)?

Thank you
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Janome 4052 or PRL-25-Anyone used one before? on: October 29, 2013 07:34:56 PM
Does anyone have a Janome 4052LX or PRL-25 sewing machine? What are your thoughts on it (it seems to be the same machine, marketed differently in the u.s and Canada)? How well does it sew fleece, stretchy knits and really heavy or light fabric? Is it quiet?

Thank you for any tips, these are discontinued models, but I wish I could own 4052 or PRL25 to learn sewing on.

Hi,
        Im getting a refurbished Janome 2039sn, and I wondered what else can blind hem and smocking stitches be used for please? Also if you were going to make fleece cat toys, which stitch/length etc would you use to make it most durable?  Heres a link to it:

 And if anyone out there has this machine, what do you think of it please?

Thanks so much Smiley

Hi, I have no idea where to post this,please bear with me. My lover is going away for several months, and I wanted to make panties, wear them so they'll remind him of me, and mail them to him.   My question is what is the best way to present/package worn panties so they look classy and make lover feel extra special? Im new to papercrafting, but would like advice on how to give him something he will love and be overwhelmingly excited by when he receives the package in the mail.

thank you so much, and i hope i dont offend anyone with this topic. I never done anything like this so I am learning how to do it right.

I say try the "Diamond Glaze".  It will seal everything and make it shiny.  I also have some E6000 and was wondering if you would seal the back of the photo before attaching the aanraku bail (with E6000), or just us Diamond Glaze alone, (maybe 2 coats of it).

I'm finding it tricky to resize images for 3/4 and 1-inch cabochons using the Gimp program. The acrylic cabs magnify the image more than the glass gems do. Is there a standard size or resolution that the pics should be printed at? I wan the clearest pix possible, should I try a laser printer instead of inkjet?

I also tried a sealant -Krylon's Preserve it-Digital Photo and Paper Protectant in the matte finish. I sprayed it on cardstock and it gives the image a more textured feel. It's REALLY important to do a thin coat. In what will be henceforth known as "The Great Marble Magnet Incident", I ruined my first batch of pix that took hours to get "just right", by spraying a second coat of sealant, and when the images dried, it looked like I put white spraypaint over them...I was crushed! I also sprayed the sealant on the reverse side of images I want to glue to a metal tin. Hopefully "Diamond Glaze" glue will adhere well without bleeding the ink, as I haven't got any elmer's on hand, and I dont think glue sticks would work on metel.

After several hours of drying time, time to glue the images to the cabs, wish me luck!....I do realize this is supposed to be the simplest of craft projects, but trust me to make a mess of it lol

BTW, Krylon now makes "magnetic paint" , maybe I'll create an entire wall dedicated to my marble magnet obsession...Yay!

Thank you for the gimp link , i will try it.  Do you know if the sealant spray or packing tape might yellow over time?

Hi,
      I just got into marble magnets and need help with printing them using my HP All-in-one printer/scanner/copier thingy ( i think its inkjet).  Are there any tips for preventing the ink on the printed custom images/photos from bleeding?  Should i print on cardstock or glossy photo paper? I'll be using "Diamond Glaze" Glue and E6000 when it arrives.  I have to make these magnets for a gift next week and dont want to make mistakes with this batch.  I got acrylic cabochons off etsy.com, as well as a few 3/4 inch glass marbles.  Any tips with photo editing programs or with how to resize images is greatly appreciated too!  Also, how long is the drying time for this craft?  I need to decorate a mint tin as well by this Tuesday and I feel so rushed!  Please help me, my fellow marbley-obsessed craftsters!

Thank you! Smiley
