I wondered this myself.  How in the world can they make these thing safe for babies to suck on?

Very cute!  I can't find my snap setter!  Found all the snaps I ordered but not the snap setter.  I think I'll have to break down and buy another one so I can make some cute bibs, too.

Your bag is absolutely beautiful! I love the internal divider. Me wanty!
As a question, where did you get that fabric? I have a friend who thinks he's a pirate and he could use a messenger bag...not in pink, of course, but who knows?

Thanks, everyone, for all the positive feedback!

I bought the fabric in Central PA at a place called Surplus City.  I also bought that fabric in black and blue.  Haven't made anything from it yet, though.

Thanks, Nix!

Ok, so here is the link to the post with the fabrics currently up for swap:

Sorry some of them are pics of projects, but that was the fastest and easiest way to post the fabric for some of them b/c they were already uploaded at craftster's pic hosting.

On page 3, I added 4 more selections but they are all in one picture.  Two are flannel, two are home dec toile.

How do I insert the link to that exact posting rather than the whole page?

By the end of today if no one has claimed, I'll add a few more.

Hard to say if it's my offerings or the low number of participants signed up so far.

If you have a request, PM me or post.  I have a TON of fabric, believe me.

You pretty much nailed it.  It's rectangles and rectangles.

Figure out how large you want the quilt to be.  Get some graph paper if you need precision.

The only thing you need to know from the quilting books or sites is how to join rectangles together.  Look at a log cabin quilt for how to join rectangles, for example.
8  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Serger reconmendations on: March 08, 2007 10:14:22 AM
hi! can someone please answer a question for me...

i am looking to buy a serger and i work with a variety of fabrics with different thicknesses. i especially love faux fur. does this mean i want a serger with differential feed? does anyone have a recommendation for a serger under $300 that works well with faux fur?

thank you!!!! <3

I have not tried anything but a very, very short pile fur in my serger (Janome--$299).  It worked, though.

I'll be interested to see if someone could answer your question, however, I think worthwhile sergers under $300 are pretty rare to begin with.

I wonder if you could use size 18 needles in the serger and have it work well for those thicker fabrics?
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pink Pirate vinyl bag on: March 07, 2007 10:34:40 AM
Found this fabric last week and had to have it.  Had to have some vinyl to go with it, too.  I also bought red and royal blue vinyl but haven't made it up yet.

I intend for this to be a diaper bag, but it wouldn't have to be.  It is HUGE.  The next ones won't be so large.  It has two elastic pockets on the inside and one plain pocket on the outside.  Two magnetic snaps close it.  The strap is adjustable so it could be worn messenger style.

I'm not usually conservative with pockets but this was my second time with vinyl and I didn't want to use up huge amounts of the pirate fabric in case it didn't work well.

I have a couple of lessons learned but overall, I'm happy.
