1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Re Vamping a coffee table on: March 02, 2014 03:42:28 AM
Can it go across the front of your fireplace to display things on? I was just looking at your fireplace and thinking a long, tall, narrow table would almost act like a mantle piece. Some years ago DH bought me two from Walmart or Target and they've been very useful in every house or apartment we've been in.

I don't have the answer because I have the same question. I hope someone can help us. I've poked around on the web but I have not seen any acceptable-to-me results. I'll keep researching and will post back here if I find something.

I have to agree with 'Nofuelleft', about pre-wound bobbins, I don't think they exist. I too have searched for them at various times over the years.

Please share with us what you did and what you were not happy with as we may be able to assist you.

Happy sewing to all.
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: COVERING UGLY CURTAINS THAT ARE PRO INSTALLED on: January 10, 2014 02:47:54 AM
You could use swags perhaps. if you look at this pic http://tinyurl.com/lr8k3t8 you'll see what I mean. When renting I used metres of white lace to make swags to cover up landlords ugly choices (blinds and curtains). I took it with me when I moved.

It does rely on a curtain rod but in one house I draped it using the pelmet. Lead sinkers held the lace across the top of the pelmet so I could still drape it in the middle.

Best wishes.

Thank you for posting this pic. This is definitely a style that would suit most of us gals. Thanks also for the url to her blog posting.

Happy sewing and best wishes for your move.
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sewing for a larger 6yo girl ?? on: July 19, 2013 06:52:10 AM
There are some lovely young girl dresses at the Lands End site and similar styles at the JCPenney site. I'm sure the fabric you've acquired will be perfect for garments for your littlie.
Best wishes.

I forgot to mention accessories. I teach 5 - 7 year olds and the girls are into hair accessories that match their dresses, hair bands, hair clips, scrunchies.
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: If you were 14...DIY party ideas? on: July 16, 2013 03:33:40 AM
My nieces and their friends are into making candles, jewellery (especially earrings) and refrigerator slices (melt and mix method) that they consume after they've completed their candles and jewellery.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Turning a favorite T into a maternity top on: June 08, 2013 09:53:17 PM
My initial thought is to cut the side seams from the armpit down and add a triangular panel of contrasting fabric to each side.

I did something similar for my niece except it started at the hem of the sleeve and went all the way down to the hem of the t-shirt. the piece I added for her was about 3 cm at the sleeve getting gradually wider until about 10 cm at the hem. The insertion fabric was a stretch lace with a nude underlining.

The lace went nicely with the print on the front of the t-shirt and really, because its under the arm, it looks like it was made that way from the start.

I've seen the high-low skirts starting below the knee & descending to the ankle in lovely floaty fabrics. Go for it.

I can crochet and sew and stick stuff together...I've already thought of crocheting some cushion covers

Crocheted doilies? I have them everywhere including hanging out of the fronts of draws, draped over the corners of mirrors and in the corner of our living room I have them draped over an old wooden ladder DH painted white for me. I can bring the ladder out if I need a room divider or to screen off a mess. It's so useful and I love the way it looks.

Crocheted dishcloths in the colour/s of her kitchen? I think they look terrific stored in a large mason jar on the kitchen bench (plus they clean pots and pans really well). Mine are pastels and I roll them so they form a striped pattern around the jar.

Crocheted edges? She could hand/machine sew these to squares of fabric to make fancy place mats or table centres, attach them to hand towels in the bathroom or pillow cases in the bedroom.

Crocheted tissue box covers?  We have two covers - bedroom and bathroom, but need a third for the kitchen box.
