have you tried using a ball point needle? sometimes that helps with puckering, although I havent sewn on paper too much, but when I have it seems to really work.
No, Ive actually been meaning to pick up some, I actually am just starting to try doing some 'proper' sewing (AKA actually using the right settings/feet/tensions and needles) Tongue up to this point Ive just been winging it and hoping for the best. 
I guess I finally decided to learn a thing or two! hehe.

shan-E-bear: I didnt notice any problems working with vinyl, I just used the thinnest stuff I could get, but it seemed to sew alright (except either my needle was getting dull at that point anyway, or it dulled it quicker than normal cause it seemed by the end of things it was being a little moody) I wonder how it would work with thicker vinyl but I have yet to try it..

The biggest problem was sewing everything face-up so when the needle would thread through the paper it wouldnt cause it to pucker out, but I felt a bit like I was sewing blind trying to hem things and not seeing what I was working on ^^;.

Just a tshirt recon I did.. took a beatles top that had pretty silver lettering, cut off the back and added a new one out of this gorgeous grey material with black and silver designs on it!

Front.. looks normal

777  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Easiest skirt ever made on: March 24, 2010 03:44:03 PM
Hey! So I had this crazy pink and blue striped material, and decided to use some to make this skirt.. too easy! haha. I didnt hem it (top or bottom) its stretchy enough I didnt have to add an elastic or zipper.. all I did was sew one stitch.. thats right! ONE down the back, and pulled the extra material over, pinned it on each hip and added a little bow made out of matching blue fishnet and a glittery star button.

The stripes probably make my butt look HUGE but I dont care, haha. I love it. Super comfy but really think so gotta get something to wear underneath.. thus the silly pink tights in the pictures.

Please let me know what you think Smiley

Pixieval! Theyre super easy. Just measure the length you want them to be (adding extra for the point to cross over) sew the edge, and throw some snaps on. Takes no time at all =)

Thanks for the feedback!

I love making these!  I used a skinny end for a watchband once if you have the kind of watch that slides on a changeable band (although the band is getting worn and the watch has run out of batteries).  Those button snaps look smart.  Where did you find them?

The snaps I just got a fabricville (its called fabricland most places but we use the french name here) bought them in a pack of 6. I dont know if its only a Canadian company or not though.. liking the watch idea too, will have to give that a try!
