1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to twist on: March 11, 2015 07:19:01 PM
Instead of taking all the groups and twirling them together, try dividing them into sections and laying each section over each other in one direction.

For example, you would divide the whole thing into 2 or 3 groups on a table.  Then you would take the left most group and move it over the top of the other one(two).  Then you would take the one that is now the left most and lay it over the others.

I drew a pic to try and see if that would help to make any sense.  You aren't twisting the groups, just laying one on top of the others, but since they are all being moved in the same direction it will make it look twisted.


2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Can't seem to find 1.75" rings anywhere. on: March 11, 2015 07:08:01 PM
Here is an update: I looked on Home Depot's website and found rings that might work.  I went in and could not find them.  Another look on my phone showed that they were online only. Duh >.<

I looked around Jo Anns for various things.  I found some that might work, but they are on the heavier side.  This wouldn't be a bad thing for a pendant, but it might not work for earrings.
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Can't seem to find 1.75" rings anywhere. on: March 11, 2015 07:18:30 AM
I found a kit on Etsy and used their idea as inspiration for something of my own.  I tried the idea I had with stuff I had laying around and it worked pretty well.
However, I don't really like the look of the finished piece with the things I had on hand because the top of the earring circle has a fairly noticeable connector.
I have been looking for plain rings, they don't have to be solid, they could be like a jump ring that are about 1.75" across.  I know I can make my own and I have asked The Ring Lord about making them for me, but I would rather spend most of my time/money on the inner sections.

Here are my samples from what I had on hand to give you an idea of what I am making.

Even the "ugly" backs are super impressive!
5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Discussion and Questions / I would love some advice on embroidery machines, more details below. on: February 22, 2015 04:55:15 PM
So I have finally convinced the hubby to cosplay with me.  Of course he picks something with a ton of embroidery from Trinity Blood.
Since we don't know how often we will actually use it I was hoping to get something that was a few hundred dollars, not a few thousand.  I might someday upgrade, but for now we don't need anything too fancy.
From my searches online it seems that both Janome or Brother make the most popular ones.  I would love to hear opinions on either to see which might be best for my intentions.

Thank for all the links!  I like the one in Russian(?) the most.  I will have to see if I can get my friend to translate some of the things on it.  If not, the craftster one is also super cute.
(who am I kidding? They are all cute!!)

I have looked online, but for some reason, I have just had no luck.  I would love to be able to make my own pig pillow (or maybe a kitty pillow) very similar to the one in the picture.  While I would love for it to be a free pattern, if it is by one of the big companies, I could wait to get it at work for a good deal, so feel free to link those too.

Thanks for the advice CraftyChef and kjlutz.  None of them are super obviously copyrighted so I think I will use them ^.^

Thank you so much for that link!  I didn't know how I was going to find something like that.

My mom found a listing on Craig's List for a bunch of scraps of fabric.  She got me a bag of really cool ones, but as I was going through I found all these oddly shaped bundles pinned together.  When I flattened them out it looked like a shape of a cat.  So now I have a bunch of these bundles that have a cat body, two back legs and a tail.  I have a general idea on how to sew it, but I don't know what kind of finishing this kind of project usually gets.


Here is one of the bundles.  You can see that the cat will be seen in profile and the back legs will help hold it up.
If anyone has worked on something like this before I would love some ideas.  Pictures wouldn't hurt either ^.~
