1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Quick & Easy Embroidery Question on: February 19, 2008 04:05:46 PM
I realize this is a dumb question for anyone who knows anything, but I'm looking to embroider a sweater and wasn't sure if I have to use a tighter knit piece of fabric on the inside where I'm embroidering? All I know is I see that kind of thing on embroidery a lot, but I didn't see info on it in my 15 min of online researching I just did on the general topic...
Please let me know & thanks!!

sorry it took so long to reply:
join the ends of the ring by pretending the first row is a new row of beads. then you just peyote/interweave bakc and forth between the first and last rows. (you have to make sure your string is going the right direction or else add or take away a row so you can attach it into a circle.)

i just used fishing wire...possibly not the best material, but it fits & stays. stretchy string would probably be ideal, but nylon string works.

haha...i won't say i didn't have to pause and remember what i was doing, but if i can do it, anyone can.

this animation helps a ton with the confidence factor...look at how easily those beads slide into place: http://www.michaels.com/art/online/static?page=ihts_peyote

Hooray!  Grin

basically i could use it to do anything...but it probably wouldn't stay if someone like..touched it. it's that bendable.

wrap beads like how?
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / The Dorm Dilemma - all rules that could possibly apply, do. :( on: January 07, 2005 05:05:45 PM
Your mission, should you choose to accept it:

Two college freshmen occupy a 15'x10' room that includes 2 open recesses with a rod that serve as closets, 2 desks, 2 windows, 2 beds (bunked atm, or we'd have NO room), and a little entertainment center (our shelving unit).

We can't use adhesive other than the mounting putty on the walls. No screws, nails, paint, etc.

1. My roommate and I are dying. We NEED decor ideas.
2. Also, we're trying to figure a way to get some additional seating that won't get in the way when we're walking through the room. For right now, we let people sit on my bed, but that's not helpful when I'm napping or they need to be sitting at another spot in the room.

i purchased some wire for jewelry making. turns out, it's uber flexible, so jewelry I make with it looks really awkward and deforms easily. what can i make out of it, now??
