1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Zipper Pulls on: March 19, 2012 03:37:59 PM
Hmm, googling isn't coming up with adequate answers so I turn to you craftsters!

I want to remove the zipper pull (not the slider) on my purse because I don't like the way it sits horizontally (I prefer it sit vertically). How does one go about removing such a thing off of a metal zipper?? I can't think of anything short of... cutting the darn thing off with metal cutters..??

Thanks for the wisdom!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Overlapping zippers on: July 24, 2007 01:02:13 AM
Hmm, I know how to sew normal zippers (baste seam, line up zipper, sew) but I'm trying to sew a hidden-ish fabric overlapping zipper for the side of a skirt. I'm unsure about how to approach this. Can someone explain or direct me to a tutorial online?

Looks totally cute! How did you do the hem?
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: A scarf: to knit or crochet on: January 26, 2007 09:41:30 PM
Thanks for the input all. In the interest of time, I've decided to crochet it - I've already borrowed the happy hooker. =D Surprisingly enough, I've found out my mother knows how to knit AND crochet. I didn't know that!

Another question to throw out there: I'll be crocheting something really simple (pretty much all single crochets) and I was wondering: is it easier/better to crochet the width (short-part of scarf) and then turn or to crochet the length (long) and turn less?
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / A scarf: to knit or crochet on: January 21, 2007 01:19:56 PM
So here's the situation: I want to make a scarf for a friend (nothing fancy - just a basic.. normal scarf that won't roll up at the sides!)  and in the interest of time and easiness - what would you recommend? Crochet or knit? The thing is: I don't know how to do either! I do eventually want to learn to crochet to make those adorable animals though *melt*. I spent so many hours on crafster just admiring them.. but I digress.

So yes, please direct me somehow.

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Problems with a duck down jacket.. on: October 11, 2005 04:16:49 PM
I bought a TNA duck down jacket awhile ago and it seems it won't stop shedding! The little feathers come out of the seams of the lining and it drives me insane. Any ideas on how to reduce/stop it? I thought about putting clear nailpolish over the seams even..

Any ideas?
10  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: creative halloween costumes on: October 10, 2005 03:21:42 AM
This picture isn't from Halloween (I just wanted to take a picture like this and my husband happened to bring home a hospital gown), but this could be an easy and fun costume.  Just make yourself look very ill and don a patient's gown.  I "bruised" the back of my hand with eyeshadow and used surgical tape to attach a plastic "IV" tube.  Backcombing the crap out of my hair helped as well.  Oh, and brown eyeshadow can do a lot to make one look near-death.  The stitched area on my cheek is white eyeliner (for the raised "slice" part), brown shadow (for the "bruised" part) and black liquid eyeliner (for the stitches).


Holy crap, that's awesome! What did you use for the IV tube thing?
