1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: A few new bags on: December 08, 2010 08:25:02 PM
I absolutely NEED to own that fabric from the first bag. Can you tell me where you got it from?
I love love love that first bag, especially the little pocket.
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Serger Sewing Off Edge of Fabric on: November 04, 2010 06:09:37 PM
Okay so I bought a Brother 1034D a few months ago. I have read all of the manuals and watched all the dvds, and still couldnt figure this out.  I've mostly only used it to finish cotton since. I tried to sew a cardigan with a two way stretch fabric, and this is what I am getting.




Do you see how the loopers are meeting together way over the edge of the fabric?
I've tried changing tensions, but I'm not really sure what I'm doing, so I dont want to screw it up. When I increased the upper and lower looper tensions, they didnt meet together at the right place.

Like I said, Im not really sure how to change the settings to achieve the effect I want. I am just trying to do a 4 thread stitch.

Here is an example of muslin sewn with the same settings


And here are what all my knobs look like.





So basically I'm asking what you need to change to accommodate a thinner stretchy fabric? Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Watermelon Slice Costume on: October 28, 2010 12:47:50 AM
So I saw a costume that someone made on here and I thought it was a great idea!
Here is a link to their post. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=359921.0

I loved the idea of the costume and thought it was really cute. Plus, when my fiance and I first started dating he would call me "watermelynn" since my name is Lynn.

I just used a basic dress pattern. I used Butteric 5350 view C. The pleated bodice was a bit difficult to make. When I first sewed the skirt of the dress it did not look very good on me Sad. So I decided to add two extra panels and then gather the skirt and I somehow pulled it off. Then I added green fabric at the hem for the rind. I cut out seeds and used iron on sewable adhesive. The seeds have already started pulling up at the edges, so I will have to sew them on also.

Oh by the way, I made this the night before I had a Halloween party! I plan on wearing it on actual Halloween also.

Full dress after adding everything.

Very cute swimsuit! I love love love that pink and black fabric. It looks so well made also. Did you use a serger?

I totally have sew envy! All of your stuff rocks.

Where do you get your fabrics from? Online?
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Little Black Dress with Yellow Lace, Modcloth inspired on: May 31, 2010 06:11:42 PM
I finally made a wearable dress. I saw this dress on Modcloth that I really adored. And well I tried to make my own!
I think it turned out pretty good for my first wearable thing ever made! It turned out much dressier looking than I wanted it to though!

I used a Simplicty pattern very loosely for the dress. Can't remember the number, but its the Cynthia Rowley one with the cute short sleeves jacket.

Oh, and here is the dress that originally inspired me : http://www.modcloth.com/store/ModCloth/Womens/Summer+Storm+Dress

The bodice has yellow lace on it (I swear its yellow!). The fabric I used is black knit pointe. It doesn't have much stretch to it, but I really like it!


This is a picture of the back. Yellow zipper. I really love yellow and black together Smiley


The skirt is gathered in the front only.


I still haven't hemmed the bottom, but I'll get around to it!

Gorgeous! I absolutely love the fabrics you used. I googled this pattern, and its hard to imagine your bag being made from this pattern. The fabric really does matter!

Where do you buy your fabrics? I LOVE the pear/apple one.

Also, you make me want to go out and buy a ruffle foot!
