i've never worked with interfacing before. i did buy some though. it's the kind that you iron to the fabric. would that work? it never even crossed my mind, thanks!

does anyone know how to sew t shirt fabric without stretching it out? i tried to make a purse out of a t shirt but when i finished sewing it was out of shape from being stretched. how the heck can i stop that?

yeah, it's just plastic. on the wrong side you can find the kind that has a felt a look to it. this i prefer because without it, my wrists were sweating really bad.

i've made necklaces, rings, barrets, and i'm waiting for my order of bolo slides to come in to make the bracelets.

for the necklaces, i just bought some figure eights and regular circle closures from the jewelry dept. after gluing the image you want, put a glob of the glue and put something sturdy on that. i'm using the covers of magezines and the purfume ads because they're made with thick paper. then get one figure eight and slide that between the just applied paper and the marble with the image attached. let that dry and then attach the regular circle and then put on your necklace.

next, i'll be trying it with ribbon. i haven't yet, so i'll see, but just glue one or two or however many you want of the marbles with the images to ribbon. then just some type of closure (velcro, snap, etc)

i've always wanted a leather cuff watch. but they're uber expensive and if i do find one they're too big cuz i have really small wrists. Angry

so, i made one. here's how:

watch face
no sew snaps

1: cut off the existing bands off of a watch. this works for those that are not metal (duh)

2: buy some cheap pleather, your choice in color (i chose black) at walmart or hobby lobby or where ever.

3: measure around your wrist

4: cut the leather in a strip that is 2" wide (or smaller or larger if you want) and 1" longer than your wrist measurement.

5: cut two strips 1 1/2 - 2" long and thin enough to fit around where you cut off the bands of the watch.

6: fit those in there, fold wrong sides together and put one side of the snap on each strip.

7: position the watchin the center of the big band you made earlier and attach the other two snaps.

ta-da! it's also made to me interchangeable with other bands you make out of different colors of pleather. you can also decorate with the bedazzler. i wish i had pics to show you all. enjoy!

if you're having probs, email me: skwirel22@yahoo.com
