2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Long sleeve dress/swing tops? on: October 12, 2008 04:04:50 PM
I'm looking for recommendations for long sleeved dresses or swing tops for my 2 year old.  I've sewed her several of the vegbee peasant tops with longs sleeves but I'm looking for something different now. 
3  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Simplicity 2787 fantastic for Costumes on: October 12, 2008 02:58:38 PM
I used this pattern at least five times this year.  http://www.simplicity.com/dv1_v4.cfm?design=2787
It is very versatile and easy to use.  I highly recommend it.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / My first Redondo skirts with made to match t-shirts. on: August 04, 2008 02:49:47 PM
First one made of stretch knit and I love it much.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help me decide what to knit for a male friend. (please) on: July 29, 2008 01:59:48 AM
Actually I know I want to knit him a scarf (I'm a pretty new knitter) but I can't decide what to knit into the scarf.

I want to try my first pattern on a scarf and don't know which would be better his initials or the initials of the college we went to together.  He's 33.  Or maybe a very simple motif at one end?  So what would a guy like best?
7  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Florida Halloween Help (please please please) on: July 20, 2008 07:07:35 PM
Begging here.  I've only recently started to sew for other people and I have a request to make the following costumes for a balmy Florida Halloween.  Three Little Pigs for three children and Big Bad Wolf for mom.  I bought a pattern from eBay for the pigs which involves a jumpsuit.  Can I make that with poly/cotton broadcloth or interlock cotton rather than fleece?  Also I have looked for several hours for a wolf costume pattern and came up with zero.  Anyone seen one, have one, know just what to do? 

Thanks all you great ladies!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Scrub Fabric? on: July 10, 2008 07:39:09 PM
Hi I have been asked to make some scrubs and am wondering what fabric to use.  I bought some poly-cotton broadcloth but am worried it may be too thin.  Denver fabrics it OTS on their solids and I can't seem to find them anywhere else.  Any help is very appreciated!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / What do you reckon these are made from? on: June 28, 2008 10:18:01 AM

I've had some requests for something similar but just not sure which fabric to choose as I want something slightly silky but that won't get picked to bits.  TIA

10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Is this as bad as I think it is? Serger help please! on: June 21, 2008 10:13:39 AM
Okay so I bought a second hand baby lock bl4-838D yesterday.  Use it for a few minutes last night and then today sat down to get some work done.  Was serging great then (after 30 minutes) started to get slower and slower.  I turned it off, turned it back on and it was back up to speed for a minute and then slower and slower.  There was just the tiniest bit of burnt engine smell so I checked to make sure everything was clean then let it rest about 15 minutes while I used my sewing machine to do a few things.  Now the serger turns on and does nothing when I hit the foot pedal.  I can manually turn the wheel and everything seems to be moving properly.  Do you think the engine is gone?  Thankfully it has a 30 day warranty but I will be gutted if it's broken already and don't know if I will trust a used one again.   Cry Embarrassed
