1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: The big thread of transfer questions (pens, pencils, paper, other) on: March 23, 2010 05:09:31 PM
I didn't get one of those wheels, though, b/c the package said specifically to use a ballpoint pen for embroidery transfers.
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: The big thread of transfer questions (pens, pencils, paper, other) on: March 23, 2010 09:06:49 AM
No, it was the Dritz tracing paper, which is supposed to, from my understanding, work like carbon paper.


Or was I totally misled?
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Transfer paper not working? on: March 21, 2010 03:10:03 PM
I bought some Dritz wax-free tracing paper to transfer my embroidery patterns to fabric, and the marks are so faint that I can't see the pattern at all.

Is this just bad transfer paper or am I doing something wrong?

I have my white muslin on the table, the tracing paper color-side to the fabric, and the printed pattern on the top. I traced it with a ball point pen.
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Wrapping an awkwardly shaped stone on: January 14, 2010 09:28:37 PM

How do you wrap a weirdly shaped stone such as this? I think the maker of the necklace used wire. Is that possible? How does it look all...soldered like that?
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Wrapping asymmetrical cabochons on: August 17, 2009 10:04:29 PM

Does anyone know a good (and economical) way to wrap an asymmetrical cab or pendant like this? I don't like having the prongs - I like the clean finished top edge like in the photo, but the wrap doesn't have to be that smooth. It can conform to the crevices in the stone.

Any suggestions?
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / a glue like hot glue...but not. on: May 25, 2009 12:12:32 PM
I was wondering if there's a glue that's just like hot glue but doesn't come with the multitude of glue "strings" when it dries.

It has to be:
- clear
- dries just as quickly
- at least as strong
- non-stringy
- odorless would be great

Any suggestions?
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / European/original hems...help! on: December 27, 2006 11:09:37 PM
Does anyone know how to sew a European hem?  Meaning shorten a pair of pants but keep the original hem somehow?

Can anyone teach me?
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / What to do with this tote? on: April 27, 2005 04:49:44 PM
Imagine a tote that looks kind of like this: http://www.promotional---items.com/canvas-bags/images/hand-bags.jpg

But with a dark brown leather handle and dark brown leather bottom (like the very bottom of the bag, underneath the bag).  And the dark green is actually the normal off-white oatmeal canvas colour.

What should I do to it do make it more interesting/attractive?  It's already quite attractive b/c of its leather handles, but what can I do to make it really unique?
9  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Re: Primp ice cream cone/unicorn hoodie on: February 11, 2005 10:40:52 PM
That's kind of cute. Have I been living in an alternate universe? Never seen these before.
Same here, what the heck, guys?

Jessica Simpson made them popular.

Here's the link to buy some of the real Primp ones. 
10  Texas / Texas: North Central / Re: Craftster group DFW? Lets make one! on: February 08, 2005 03:38:41 PM
I'd be interested in a centrally located Dallas craft group, but definitely not a "DFW metroplex" or "Dallas/Denton" group. All these cities (Arlington, Fort Worth, Denton, Dallas, etc) get lumped together, but they're really too far away from each other for it to be practical to expect people to drive an hour to get there.

Really, I must agree.  I think an Arlington/Fort Worth one would be sufficient.  And then Dallas can have a separate craft group.
