1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I need a muumuu!! on: May 01, 2007 01:29:23 PM
Honestly and for true.

Call me lazy, or cheap, but I just don't feel like BUYING a muumuu.  (They can be expensive)  I was trying to see if there was a free or  inexpensive pattern to make traditional Hawaiian muumuu for my daughter and I.  Or perhaps someone has an idea to do a patternless version.  One for a woman in the size L and one for a girl in the size 8.  Any suggestions?

And for the record, we do not believe that muumuu are hideous frocks to be worn around the house.  They are beautiful float dresses to be worn to dance.   Grin
2  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / embroidery sans hoop on: August 31, 2005 03:26:43 PM
I posted this over in discussion & questions, but I thought I'd post here too just in case any of you sublime stitchers had suggestions.  Smiley
-----
I'm more of a painter than anything else, but I wanted to incorporate embroidery into one of my next works.  Which leaves me with some questions / concerns ...

1.)  Canvas is pulled taught against the stretcher bars, so in theory I should be able to embroider right onto the canvas.... right?

(Obviously I cannot embellish the canvas prior to stretching as it will either pull out the stitches or cause wrinkling or warping in the canvas)

2.)  If I apply the paint first and embroider over it (which is what I was planning)  How do I go about transferring an image onto the canvas?  Would ironing it on somehow affect the paint (or ruin my iron)?

3.)  Once I got an image transfer on my canvas, how would I wash it off without it disrupting my painting?

Any help or suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks!
