11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Patch Question on: July 13, 2010 01:54:16 AM
Hi,
So, I have a patch but I can't tell if iron it on something or do I sew it on. I have never used a real patch before, so I'm not sure what to do. Sad

On one side it has the actual design and has the threadlike feeling. But on the other it feels kind of like wax paper and threads are covered by the wax paper material.

Also, can you sew/iron on any patch or does only go for certain patches? What's the difference?

Thanks!

Just some shirts that I completed. Two of them are reconstructions of former reconstructions. I redid them mainly because I planned to redo them once I started using a sewing machine. I hand sewed them the first time. And just one reconstruction that I'm pretty stoked came out great Smiley enjoy!!!

Before:




After:
Although I initially wanted to keep it a dress I chickened out at the last minute and decided to make into a tank. The dress form it was in was ok...but I couldn't convince myself that I actually wear it...so I changed it.



Now a tank:
Not quite finished because of the flaps under the armpits as well as the rough edges on the top, but I feel it's close enough to post. Tongue Wink





(it's not tight! i was just standing funny Tongue)

Before:
I was trying to make a long sleeve shirt with a cowl neck, but didn't turn out as I imagined...


After:
Kept the cowl neck idea but decided to go sleeveless and hemmed up everything in black.




So I don't have a before picture of this one (forgot!  Tongue) but it was just a standard black t-shirt, nothing new.

After:
I used the instructions from Generation T: Beyond Fashion




Thanks for viewing!!!

Ooo, I like that t-shirt bib!!!!
Question, what t-shirt was it?! I'm in my ASL 2 class and would love that shirt!  Smiley

I like the bib, but what does "iracle orke" mean? Or did it used to say "miracle worker"?

Oh yeah! sorry so the original t-shirt was from a play I participated in high school. I'm pretty sure the title was the "The Miracle Worker" (if not a longer title), but it was about  how Helen Keller started to learn ASL.

A t-shirt bib, using instructions from Generation T: Beyond Fashion



A burping cloth, using instructions also from Generation T: Beyond Fashion. Can you see my invisible behbeh?

16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / primary colored hoodie patch on: January 15, 2010 01:09:48 PM

Well, it was only a small detail i.e. the red, blue, yellow patch, but I had to basically take apart the whole initial hoodie in order to install the patch. But now i'm done Smiley  it's for my boyfriend's birthday this weekend...also when i'm going to meet his mom  Lips sealed wish me luck!

I kinda had this problem a while ago, particularly the top thread breaking. Turns out I just inserted the needle backwards...so maybe check that? otherwise, i'm not sure, good luck though!

19  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Diagnosing problem--zigzag stitch on: December 15, 2009 12:16:27 AM
Hi, I have been having this problem for two days now  Undecided
Sewing sweater fleece (sweatshirt) material
and using a zigzag stitch...but it turns out looking like this:



the zigzag isn't exactly happening... Huh
at first I thought it was the upper thread tension, so I changed it from a normal (4) to a 3, but that didn't work...so then i thought maybe it was the needle so i changed that as well...and that didn't work...so now i just don't know...if anyone has any ideas please let me know! thank you!

p.s. sorry for the bad quality pictures >_<
