211  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: So I have this sweatshirt that's 2 sizes too small... on: October 07, 2005 09:59:14 PM
I think you'll do great! If you're really nervous try it on another sweatshirt or t-shirt first so that you can work out any kinks that might arise. You're not alone in that fear of trying something new. When I am trying a new design of anything I make the first out of fabric I don't care about.
At least with your sweatshirt you just have to pull the seams apart at first and there is no cutting. If you panic you could just sew it right back up. post when you finish! I'd love to see how it turned out!

Most people would not notice because it is at your side .. BUT, if it bothers you than you could remove it and replace it. Just take notice of how it is put together so that no one would even notice it wasn't bought that way. Another suggestion is to remove the bottom completely and instead of cutting in 2 different spots than cut it once at the back (right in the middle) and remember to put in twice the amount to make up for both sides.

Better to get over the fear of cutting into it cus otherwise the bigger waste is to let it sit for more time in your closet and not get use out of it. Be fearless! and good luck!

Hmmmmmm .... here is my suggestion ... if you need a bit of space in the arms and in the body I would first find the same colour and same type of fabric ( I assume that it is not hard to find) Now first undo the seams that usually run under the arm down to the wrist (this part might be tricky as you may have to gather the extra fabric to the sleeve). Now undo the seams from under your arm to the waist. Now you cut a strip of the matching fabric (start big if you are unsure) and start sewing from the wrist up the arm and back down to the waist ... gather and stitch on back to the bottom of the waist and to the wrist bands.   Roll Eyes Hard to explain without pics but hopes this helps!

I found it! As soon as I saw the pic I recognized it. You can buy it on ebay from the seller zeetzeet. I've bought before from her and she is a really good ebayer ... such fast delivery and I live in Canada! Happy sewing! I put the link for instant access to her auctions ... 2 of them (one starts at a low bid and the other is to buy it now)

216  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Re: Iron-on on a purse on: August 30, 2005 12:04:36 PM
Is the iron-on a sticker looking one or a fabric one? If it is a bought one than put it on after but if it is a fabric iron-on then I would put it on first and then sew around it to reinforce (otherwise your stitching will show on the lining). Hope it helps!  Grin
217  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Prices -- CAD vs USD on: August 29, 2005 07:41:56 PM
I sell things online in USD and when I sell in Toronto I adjust the price accordingly. Price your product according to what you think it is worth. If you sell an item for $15 USD and $5 of that is for shipping than take the shipping off $15 - $5 = $10 USD = approx. $12 CDN. NOW if your items fly off the shelf like hotcakes than you could up it a bit to say $15 CDN and go from there. In the end it is the market that dictates its worth. Hope this helps Wink
