1211  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: One Tiny Doctor Who Thing - Round 2 (Signups through 4/9, Sendouts 5/7) on: April 07, 2011 05:44:29 PM
Yay! Just sent my questionaire. I can't wait to start. I was also thinking this would be good for my first swap since it is just one little thing.....Plus I've been looking for an excuse to do some Doctor Who related crafting  Grin

I'm apologizing in advance if I'm being a moron about this and missed some obvious answer somewhere.
I really want to participate in this swap but I've never done a swap before. I meet all the other conditions though. Can I participate in this swap or do I have to do one of those "newbie swaps" first?
I've read through all the swap info and faq's and all that but I'm still confused about this.

Thanks for the explaination/tips. I'll keep it in mind when i'm making my leather soled booties.

Those are super adorable! Did you have any issues when sewing the leather? I'm just wondering because all the booties i've made are all cloth or felt but I want to make some with a leather sole for a little girl that's learning to walk. I know the leather will be more durable and a good intro to big kid shoes but I guess I'm just nervous about sewing with the leather beacause I've never used it before. What size needle did you use? Did you sew it by hand or machine?
These really are too cute though. You did a great job!

I haven't really looked around at many corset making sites yet so thanks for the links. I have a few patterns that I bought cuz they were on sale for a dollar, but as with pretty much everything I make, I'm sure I'll be making my own patterns once I get the hang of it, so that last one sounds likt it'll be helpful. Eeee!!! I can't wait to get started on my corset now. I have a couple other things I gotta finnish first  (I really need to stop trying to make 5 things at once :p )then I think I'm gonna start on it.

lol. Thanks. I will definately check out the corset sew-along, and now that I know it exists, I'm sure I'll be joining the Tuesday night corset chats when I start mine.....actually the more I think about that, the more I know I'll be joining the chat cuz I always want someone to talk to about my projects and usually when I do that people just start getting that glossed over look in their eyes and change the subject :p
1218  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Fabric stiffener on corsets? on: March 14, 2011 12:58:09 AM
awsome, thanks! i'll go check it out and put bra-making on my to do list of future projects

oh I'm sure I'll get addicted to corset making, I have a habit of when I make one of something I want to immediately make 5 more in every color/pattern I can find.

I've thought about making my own bras (I'm a 32H so I share your pain of not being able to find anything that fits), but I just have this image of it coming out horribly wrong and looking like something that would only fit a mutant. Is it hard to get the sizing right? Did you buy a pattern or do you make your own pattern? Where do you get the underwire? Cuz if its not too crazy hard to do I'd totally make my own bras. Actually it would be awsome cuz then I could also make swimsuit tops that fit too. A while back a belly dancer at a renicance fair showed me how to tie a scarf into a binkini-type top which is what I've been using, and it works and is cute and all but it'd be nice to have a normal looking swimsuit top that actually fits.

oh and you might wanna check out this site www.brastop.com that's where I get all my bras. They're a UK site but they have really good sales so even with the exchange rate all their bras are really cheap and they go up to like a K cup. And they're return policy is good too if you end up ordering the wrong size.

Yeah I know Butterick 4669 is a costume one to wear over another top, but i figure it'd be fun to wear to a renisance fair or something like that, or to use as part of a pirate/wench costume for Halloween. But like I said, the patterns were only a buck so I really don't mind if they end up not working out.
Thanks for that link though, that'll really come in handy. I'm always bugging the old ladies at the craft stores asking them advice on what patterns have worked good for them in the past, so being able to look it up online will definately help.
