21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Covering a Headband - HELP! on: January 16, 2012 08:27:31 AM
Howdy Crafty Folks!

I need to know how to cover a headband. I've tried a few different ways with fabric and ribbon and maybe I'm just doing all wrong. This may not be the right forum to post this question, but I'm putting it out there -- any ideas for an easy way to cover a headband so it won't snag hair and will look nice?

Thanks!

What kind of frog pattern are you looking for? Maybe a little more clarifying, what are you hoping to make?

23  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Dog Shoe Dilemma (shoe sole fabric) on: January 15, 2012 12:15:16 PM
Hello Sew Brilliant Community!

I run a small online shop and have undertake this huge project - - dog shoes. I'm a drafter by trade so designing them has not been too bad and I have managed to get all the elements from the boot to the cuff to the elastic & Velcro closure all to work in harmony. BUT... I thought I would put this question out there and see what kind of response I got back.

I need something for the sole. It needs to be durable, non-skid and sew-able onto vinyl. I try to use as much reclaimed, recycled and upcycled items as I can, but this is the one piece of the shoe that I just don't seem to be able to conquer - and will likely need to buy new.

Currently I'm using a cotton/polyester blend that has small rubber nodules on it. It does okay... but it isn't as rough and tough as I'd like it to be.

Does anyone have any ideas on what I could use instead?

I'm open to suggestions because I'm currently in pre-order right now and I could use a little input before my next phase goes out. If you are a visual person like me and seeing it would be help, you can check out the shoes at http://sewmantra.blogspot.com/2012/01/dog-shoe-dilemma-part-dos.html

Thanks for your thoughts.

Using some leftover pieces of felt, random beads I wasn't sure how I got them and a love of science stuff, I came up with my line of Germ Gewelry.

(Yes, jewelry is spelled wrong on purpose). Thanks for the fun challenge! Martiel
