1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Drawstring backback.... on: June 12, 2005 06:57:04 PM
I'm going to be making a drawstring backpack but I cant figure out how the drawstring would go in. I want to put lining in the pack, but by doing that wouldn't it seal up the drawstring hole? I tried to find a tutorial on drawstringed bags, but none of them had pictures available. (I'm one of those people who need images to understand) Maybe I'm just looking under the wrong titles or something but can anyone give me input, or a link to a drawstring bag that has images???

Would be much appreciated. Thanks!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Goth Hooded Countess Robe... on: May 07, 2005 09:30:20 AM
I need some help....I want to make one, but I don't want to go through the extent of purchasing all the fabric just to mess up on it (by freestyling it). I was wondering if anyone here knew of where I could get a pattern for making one, or how I could alter another pattern to get the look I want?? Or any ideas as to how I could make one...I kind of have an idea, but I want to recieve others thoughts before I rush out and do it and screw up :s I'm known to do that a lot while making things Tongue Anyway, here is the look I'm trying to go for....



I want it that length, I want the hood, I also wanted to add cat ears to the hood so if anyone has any tips on doing that, that'd help out too. I want them rather stiffer not floppy. I also want the sleeves to flair but I don't want them to flair that much. (as shown in picture)

Ok thanks for any help, I appreciate it!! Hopefully people will get back to me before tonight, I have my eye on the fabric already...Dunno how long it'll last Tongue
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Newbie, First Post, Sewing Machine... on: April 20, 2005 11:01:27 PM
Hey Everyone, I LOVE this site. I stumbled across it by chance and am so thankful I did!!! So many ideas it's given me. WOW to some of your projects! Very creative people out there willing to share their ideas.

Anyway to my topic/question:

I'm not a new sewing, but I'm also not advanced. I took it in school and have recently started up doing/trying to do projects. However most of them (since out of school) have been reconstructing a pre-sewen item. I'm going to be starting a purse from scratch, yay me!  Tongue But before I do, I'm thinking about buying a new sewing machine. The one I currently have was a "hand-me-down" from my Grandma and although it's gotten me through some of my ulterations...I feel that maybe it's time for it to retire. Or get passed on. It has it's quirks and can be a major pain sometimes. I guess I could get it serviced but figured what's the point when it's from the 70's. Who knows when it may just "go"...So I am thinking about buying a new machine and was wondering if anyone here has a newer one that they just love and/or would recommend me to get. Thanks:)
