11  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / HELP!!! I can't figure out the bobbin size for my Janome! on: February 06, 2011 03:40:45 PM
I have looked at my manual several times and I just cannot find what size bobbins my Janome sewing machine uses! Either I'm blind or it really does not say anythign about it. Can anyone tell me what size bobbins they use???
12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / awkward romper-thing = cute skirt! (my first post ever!) on: January 24, 2011 12:27:46 PM
So I fould this weird romper thing with a sunflower pattern in my closet that I had acquired from who-knows-where a while back. This thing had the worst shorts on it. They were huge and flared and just bad, but I absolutely loved the fabric. I thought about it for a while and decided that I wanted to make it into a skirt. So last night I broke out the scissors and sewing machine and set to work...



This is the romper before...

...and this is the romper after! (Bonus: there were already pockets in the shorts portion of the romper!)

I absolutely love my new skirt! I didn't do the best sewing job on it though, but I don't really care. It isn't too noticeable. It was my first recon and I'm extremely proud of it.

I was so excited to wear my skirt today, but I didn't have any elastic on hand for the waist, so I went and dug out an old hoodie string from my box of crafting supplies so that I could cinch up the waist until I get to the craft store. Tongue

So what do you think?
