I am looking for a couple of fabric co-ops.  I saw the diaper ones on yahoo groups but want cotton prints, etc.  Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Wet Bag - zipper or velcro? on: October 02, 2010 05:33:43 PM
I am going to make a wet bag for my DD's cloth pads.  The contents will be wet but not soaking wet.  Should I use a zipper or velcro?

Thanks,
Susan
3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Cloth pad construction ???'s on: September 18, 2010 05:21:20 PM
I am going to make some cloth pads for my teenage daughter (13).  I was thinking that all in ones would be best for her - easy to use like disposables.  I was going to make some for me too.  I was going to make me some with the replaceable top absorbent pad.   Should I use pul in the wings or just in the bottom layer of the absorbent part?

Thanks,
Susan

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / New outfits for Kindergarten! on: August 08, 2010 06:20:33 PM
I pulled out the sewing machine and started getting Maddy ready for Kindergarten.

Molly peasant dress with an elastic empire waist from a Sis Boom pattern.  I downloaded it from www.youcanmakethis.com.  It came out really cute.  I will make more using the sleeve and skirt length variations.  It took a couple of hours and is super easy.  The matching headband is a free pattern from the same site.





A patternless skirt made form an "oliver + s" tutorial.  It uses ribbon to finish the hem and has an elastic waistband  It took less than an hour to make (even with a supervisor).  The tutorial is at www.oliverands.com



A close up of the headband from www.youcanmakethis.com.  I used one of my machine's "fancy" stitches to embellish it.  Maddy is such a ham - she's blowing kisses.



Thanks,
Susan
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Printing Burda patterns ? on: March 27, 2010 07:31:46 PM
I don't have A4 paper - I live in a small town in Montana and there isn't a Kinko's or anything.  If I print my patterns (skirt/dresses) out on regular 8.5 x 11 will the patterns come out wonky or just a little small?

Thanks in advance,
Susan
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Mom and Daughter jean skirts on: January 23, 2010 06:41:23 PM
I made a jean skirt for myself out of a pair of jeans I ripped.  I took the leftover material from the pants legs and made hearts to put on the front.  I used one of the hearts to cover the hole.



My daughter liked it so much, I taught her to make one too.

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Best way to add crochet edging? on: January 23, 2010 03:20:09 PM
I saw a book for fleece baby blankets with a crocheted edging (baby yarn).  I thought it would be cool to do.  The book said to punch holes (with an awl) every so often along the edge.  Is this the best way?  Is that what people do to other types of fabric?
