11  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: How do I sew this circle in this hole? on: March 28, 2014 05:00:20 PM
It sounds possible that you don't have the hole yet, is that right? Like, you aren't repairing a hole that already exists, but rather doing something purely as a design element?

In which case, place the contrast behind your top fabric, mark and sew the circle, then cut out the hole.

If that's not what you're doing, and you already have the circle-shaped hole, just ignore me and read the other responses before mine. Smiley

The more I think about it, the more I can imagine hot glue peeling/breaking off the glass when it's time. I think I may try that. I know that anything I use is more than likely going to be the end of the bones, especially since they'll be small.

When I get something put together, I'll update this post to let y'all know/see what I went with. Smiley

Will it? As a crafter I'm almost embarrassed to admit that I don't use hot glue very often. I find it messy and I'm clumsy with it. But it'll cleanly come off glass with heat? I can manage that. Smiley

That's a good idea... and it would come off the glass pretty well, after razoring. Thanks!

Aaaah! That's so awesome! I've been so busy looking at everyone else's fantastic work, I haven't peeped in to see replies to my post. I'm so thrilled for my new badge!!

Howdy, all!

I thought you glass folks might have some good ideas for me.

I was gifted a series of 4 dome-glass frames with old dried floral arrangements, you know the types. They're pretty, but they need a little more to fit in with my home. I have a couple of raccoon skulls sitting around waiting for something to do, and I thought they'd make a great addition. Unfortunately, the domes are deep enough to put the skulls inside with the flowers, but then I thought it might look cool to mount the skull outside, on the glass surface.

I'm not sure I want to use hot glue because it would never ever be removable. Can you think of anything that would hold a skull to glass well enough, but that could eventually clean off the glass? (The skull doesn't have to be recoverable, but I can't help but flinch when I think about permanently marking the glass.)

Let me know, thanks!

19  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Looking for parts for Jaguar 298 serger... on: January 05, 2014 06:25:56 PM
Hey folks.

I have a lovely Jaguar 298D serger, which I bought at an estate sale. It was the first sewing machine I bought used, and didn't know the cardinal rule: ask for the accessories!

So I don't have the rolled hem foot and plate, and boy do I wish I did. The book has the part numbers as 72199 for the plate and 72082 for the foot. The plate and the foot are each marked with an R on the top, if there's no visible part number. Having a helluva time finding them online. My understanding is that some White (the parent company) serger parts are interchangeable with Jaguar.

Anyway, anyone with a spare kit or an unworking Jaguar (or maybe White), DM me. Smiley

Thanks for the tip on the Meetup! I'd love to be able to meet and collaborate with some Detroit-area hobby crafters. Smiley (I'm in Southfield.)
