11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Frustrated on: October 04, 2010 09:56:50 AM
What problems specifically are you having? Perhaps someone can help. Sometimes the super easy patterns don't look very good because super easy means less sewing, less sewing means baggy and shapeless. I don't know what you are trying to make, so that could not be the case. PJ pants are in the super easy patterns and they should turn out like PJ pants.
12  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: A Week of Baby Onesies Swap Round 5 (Sign-ups CLOSED, Send-out 10/25) on: October 04, 2010 09:50:43 AM
I am close to done, I had a simple schedule to keep me on track and at first I was ahead on the schedule, but then I didn't work at all for two days due to annoying baby sleep issues keeping me awake and giving me lack of sleep/stress induced sinus problems. (Not sick, but pre-sick). Hopefully I'll finish this week. I was hoping for a sunny day, but that isn't going to happen. 
13  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Novice in need of clarification. on: September 29, 2010 03:51:24 PM
I don't know about embroidery machines, do you really need one to start out? It is one of those weird things you could buy an inexpensive machine that might not work very well making you less likely to sew, or you could spend lots of money on a good machine and then decide that you don't really like sewing. So I don't know how to answer your question.

But a serger is a machine that uses multiple threads. Look inside your T-shirt you see all the stitching that is holding the seam together? That is what a serger does. It is used for sewing things together (works really well for knits) or for finishing the edge of fabric so it doesn't ravel. The multiple threads wrap the edge of the fabric so it won't ravel when washing etc. It also has a blade so it cuts off the excess fabric.

I have started. I was doing well using only what I have and not buying excess stuff (I like buying craft stuff in swaps but am trying to save money). However I was at the store and forgot I need to buy a new ironing board! The old one besides being really cheap, has become somewhat of a deathtrap by randomly collapsing. My husband thought it was user error on my part until it happened to him. 

15  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Sewn felt animals... on: September 22, 2010 05:23:09 PM
In a magazine I used a pattern to sew felt birds...see image and was wondering if anyone had resources for other patterns. As you can see I don't even know how to ask for what I am looking for, so I can't search for myself.

So, my shirts should be here today. Now my problem is various computer devices and getting what I want in the right place to print correctly. Stupid husband for reformatting computers and not installing programs!!!

I don't know if this helps, but one time I found transparent contact/shelf paper at the craft store. Looking at the pictures on the roll it appears to be for "laminating" things. But I have used it to make stencils...sometime ...I think. I am not really a stencil-er.

If you want washfastness don't use RIT. You need fiber reactive dye. I wish a local store had packets of dylon permanent fabric dye more expensive if you dye lots, but seems like a good idea for something like this.

For those of you that sew things, what patterns do you use? And for what ages of babies...or I guess leighi123 what patterns did you just find. I am used to sewing adult things and all the baby stuff I have sewn was with woven fabric and I am guessing what you guys are talking about is with knit fabric.
