5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / zippe or no zipper? on: January 17, 2007 07:07:01 PM
making vinyl skirts-
the one skirt waist is 30"-

drawstring with metal gromets-

for the drawstring-

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / silk skirt from pants on: January 13, 2007 11:02:15 AM
used a silk pair of pants i found.

cut the legs off and made a skirt out of the top part.
Left over pieces 2 legs.  Opened each leg up to have
2 large pieces.  Placed these 2 pieces together with the
hemmed cuffs at top right side facing each other.  I then sewed the sides leaving a gap from the cuff to start drawstring.
Drawstring was made from scraps of same material.

Then measured off 18" down from cuffs to have
enough for seams and cut across the bottom edge.  So, now
then I sewed around the cuff part and added a drawstring.
The bottom part was hemmed and then added some lace I had.
Then added the heart.  
By using the cuffed part at the top- the rest is flared out a bit.

yes i am a guy Smiley

my first tute!  let me know wha' you think.

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / free fabric and clothes on: January 08, 2007 07:33:06 PM
I made a rule:  1 don't buy any fabric or clothes to revamp.

The dumpsters are chuck fullof cloth and clothes-
usually in large trash bags and in decent condition.
In doing so I reduce the trash a tiny bit...

So, i was wondering... anyone else find any spots
they want to share that they find free cloth or clothes?

9  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / quilt edge on: November 28, 2005 06:37:49 AM
i have the top piece done with squares patchs as a border - 2 squares wide all the way around-

any ideas of how to edge this quilt?  i want to use scrap pieces -

any recomendations?

10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / no printer needed- on: November 09, 2005 06:23:46 AM
kids love this for class-  cut up iron on transfers to small pieces-
have the kids use permentment markers drawing in reverse
right on the paper don't press to hard will tear the paper-

can then iron on cloth pieces for patches or t-shirts-
no printer needed and the kids make 'one of a kind'....

and you use every piece of the transfers-
