1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / coasters? on: September 25, 2008 05:43:09 PM
Does anyone have any ideas on what to do with coasters? I've done quite a bit of traveling and collected coasters from each country. They are all different shapes and sizes. I was trying to think of a way I could tastefully display them in my house. I would have loved to do a coffee table top under glass, but I don't need any more tables.  Any ideas or pictures of what you have done with coasters would be great!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Lotta Jansdotter's apron? on: January 09, 2008 06:46:16 PM
Has anyone made the apron from Lotta's book Simple Sewing? Any idea of how to turn that into a wearable shirt? I was thinking about just a large band across the back, but I'm not sure how to do that.  Anyone else have ideas?
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / tutorial like this? apron shirt on: December 30, 2007 03:39:00 PM
I'm looking for a tutorial to make a shirt like this.  These are actual aprons, but I would like to make an apron dress type thing to wear over a tshirt and jeans.

Anyone know of any patterns or tutorials that are close?

Thanks!

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / jumper tutorial? on: December 27, 2007 01:33:40 PM
I have some knit cloth I'm trying to find a use for. It's really thin and stretchy. Does anyone have a tutorial for a jumper? The kind with straps and a button on each side. I was thinking either a jumper for a wrap top. A tutorial for either one would be great!

Thanks!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / interesting stitch? on: December 22, 2007 09:21:30 AM
I have to make a VERY last minute gift for my sister in law. I'm going to knit her a scarf out of very chunky yarn to make it fast. Does anyone know of an interesting and EASY stitch I could do? I want to make something other than stockinette or garter.


Thanks! Smiley

How do you make a lining?

When I'm in the fabric store I do a hand test. I hold my hand under the fabric, if I can see my hand through it then I know it's too thin to be worn as clothing. So far none of the quilting fabric has passed the test. I don't order online because I can't see how thin the fabric is. Sad

Are there other fabrics that are cotton, but not the thin stiff quilt fabric?

And what kind of fabric do you use to make tops?

Most of the skirts I like just say "Cotton" on the tag. Then I think...what kind of cotton? Because that quilting material is all cotton, but if I made a skirt out of that everyone would see my undies! Smiley

I really like this skirt...



It just says "Cotton, lined with cotton"
