1  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Re: neon makes me happy :) on: April 15, 2011 10:31:48 AM
Thanks everyone!

These shoes were so satisfying to finish, since it was simple but made a HUGE difference in how much I love them.
Glad you all seem to like them too Smiley
2  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / neon makes me happy :) on: March 12, 2011 07:12:12 PM

I was inspired by the awesome shoe tutorial i saw here...
http://www.dirtyhems.com/2011/01/dirty-hems-diy-neon-sole-heels.html

And decided that i had to have a pair of neon soled pumps!
(Sorry in advance for the slightly blurry pics)

I started with these:


I've had these heels forever! If you can't tell, they are suede, with a wood finish on the bottom that was wearing off.
You can see it better in this picture:


So after sanding, priming, and painting about 5 coats, I ended up with these pretties:


let me know what you think! C&C welcomed Smiley
thanks!

I would love to do this swap! HOWEVER, I am leaving to go out of the country for a month beginning on July 9th.  Would anyone be willing to send a kit early? Maybe even a kit that is sized for travel, so I could take it on the 13 (!!!) hour plane ride to Taiwan?

If anyone is interested, I could make kits for:
1. Miniature tile jewelry
2. Beaded/Charm/Chain-work Jewelry
3. Tree of Life Pendants
4. Basic cross-body purse kit
5. Reconstructed jewelry kit

I would love to learn
1. Basic (and I mean waaaay basic) Crochet
2. Tatting
3. Knitting
4. Resin pendants
5. Amigurumi

Thanks, I will try to find some smaller needles.  I'm assuming a ball point needle is exactly what it sounds like? It just has a rounded rather than pointed tip?

Hello,

I am a fairly new sewer, and have hit a very frustrating problem.  I am reconstructing a dress that is made of very light "chiffon-like" polyester.  I know that this means that I need to use a different tension than if I were sewing something like denim, so I have been trying to find the right tension setting.  I have tried adjusting needle size (I think I settled on a 12 or 14?), adjusting the thread tension, cleaning the machine, and using different speed and tension on the fabric itself.  The main problem I am having is that the fabric is bunching up badly as I run it through the machine, no matter what speed I use.  Then, if I try and straighten out the seam, all the threads pop, and it's gotten soooooo frustrating.

If you have any ideas on how to fix this, please help!!

Thanks!

these are AMAZING.  i've seen some beautiful kanzashi before, but that ivory piece is the most gorgeous i have ever seen.  I seriously applaud the patience needed for a flower of that size and detail level. INCREDIBLE.

(ps, definitely hitting this rocks!)
