1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Re: patchwork rainbow skirt with 2000 inch spin on: November 25, 2008 07:20:34 AM
I was looking at your post last night and my two little girls walked by and both said "Mommy I want one for Christmas this year."  I told them I would make them both one, but they may not be made by Christmas time.  The oldest then said she wanted me to wait until after Christmas to make hers so she could help me make hers.

2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: I got a sewing machine!!!! on: December 27, 2006 06:05:45 PM
I don't know anything about this machine, but I have been sewing for several years for my daughters.  I didn't start out sewing pillows or anything like that.  My very first project was outfits for my daughters.  I used one of the sewing for dummies patterns.  I made a short set for both of my girls.  They were not perfect but, they did turn out ok enough for them to wear in public. 

I also got a new machine this year.  My Dear Husband got me an embroidery and sewing machine.  I got a Brother SE-270D.

Good luck and congratulations,

Carmen

Well, after spending over an hour trying on bras the other day and not finding even one that fit, I went to ebay and bought a Kwik Sew bra pattern.  It just came in the mail today.  So, it looks like I will be sewing over the Christmas break.  Hopefully when the new year rolls around I will have at least one good fitting bra with a pattern to make many more. 

Good luck everybody,
Carmen

I think that I have a pattern that I can copy and send it to you if you are interested.  Just let me know and I can copy it and send it your way.

I have one of the IT'S SO EASY IT'S SIMPLICITY
Patterns #4234 that I got at Wal-Mart for about $3.00 US.

I have the material for it but have not had the time to actually try to make them yet.  When I do, I will post a picture.
6  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: Pads for the Curvy Gal...Tutorial on: September 06, 2006 04:17:21 PM
I have been using cloth pads for over a year now.  I started using them when I developed an allergy to store bought ones.  When I told my DH about wanting to try them out he told me I would never continue to use them.  I have been using them ever since I first tried them.  I have on a few occasions, gone back to the disposables, and every time, I have leaked terribly.  I never have leaked with my cloth.  I use a fleece pad with little pockets on the ends and make liners out of old baby towels with flannel on top.  I just change out the liners unless the pad itself gets dirty.  I do not soak my pads, I just wash them as needed and have not had any problems with stains.  I tried several different patterns and have decided that I like the pad with the pockets and the liners sitting on top the best.

Good luck everybody,
Carmen

mmd32 If you want the bonfit sets, have a look on ebay.  I purchased all three sets at different times for less than $50.00 total, including shipping.

Unfortunately, I got pregnant before I had the chance to try them, and now I have gained so much weight, that I can not fit into the bodice set that I have.  I am losing though, so hopefully before much longer, I'll be able to use them.

Good luck,
Carmen

What I did was took a disposable pad and traced aroung it to make my pattern.  Then I just added pockets on each end to hold the pad into place.  I then took the disposable pad and traced it again for the pad liner, but made it a bit smaller.  I have used flannel and old baby towels that I had around for the pad liners.  I just serged the edges but if you do not have access to a serger, you could sew with a regular sewing machine right sides together and turn right sides out like you would a pillow. 

If you have any questions, send me a message and I will try to figure out how to put together some sort of a tutorial with pictures.

Good luck,
Carmen

One of the reasons that you make the cover and the inserts is so that they dry quicker.  I also think they get cleaner with seperate parts.  I make mine with a holder with pockets on the ends and the pad actually sits on top inside the pockets, so I only have to change the top pads and not the whole thing.

I make my holder out of fleece so if the pads leak out some the fleece acts as a waterproof barrier. 

Good luck,
Carmen
