41  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Fabric stiffener on corsets? on: March 10, 2011 03:23:57 AM
Has anyone used fabric stiffener when making a corset? I'm planning on making a corset soon and I was thinking of using a fabric stiffener on the lining in addition to the normal interfacing. Has anyone ever done this before? If so, did it make any difference in how well the corset held its shape when wearing it? Also, if anyone's used fabric stiffener on any clothing items did it irritate your skin? I have pretty sensitive skin, and break out in hives a lot so the other thing i'm worried about is that if I use fabric stiffener on the lining it might make me break out (I don't usually wear anything under corsets, I generally just wear them as a top or in place of a bra). Any thoughts on this would be much appriciated.
42  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Is there a way to cross stitch on normal fabric? on: March 10, 2011 03:10:43 AM
I know that you can get iron on embroidery patterns so you can do the embroidery on any fabric. Does anyone know of anything like this that's just a blank grid, so I could do a cros stitch pattern on any fabric? I just got a book of zombie cross stitch patterns and I want to do them on purses, blankets, hats, etc, and I just really don't like the look or feel of cross stitch fabric. Does anyone know a way to do a cross stitch pattern on a normal fabric that doesn't have a grid built into the weave?
