1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Please answer a survey for my research paper! on: March 15, 2006 06:06:47 AM
I craft for a number of reasons; firstly it means I can have clothes, handbags and jewlery that I want to wear, that fit me, and that aren't identical to everybody else's - I do still get a lot of stuff from stores, but I get far more complements on the stuff I make myself. It's an expression of personality as well.

Secondly, crafting gifts for people is much more satisfying that just buying something - I tend to craft only for my closest friends and family, but I know that when I do, that craft is appreciated much more. Thirdly, crafting is therapeutic - I'm not a regular crafter, but when I get started, I'll keep going for hours and feel much better when I'm done; I get the same feeling of satisfaction from cooking as well.
and everything that craft-matic said.

good luck with your paper!

ebay, definitely - maybe a local ad paper?

or to me.

I'd try h&m too - if you say you're not curvy they're probably going to fit you (I'm curvy and they're definitely not designed for me) and they're not badly priced.

And tesco/cherokee all the way. Try Sainsburys as well - and Asda for the george stuff.

and the proof... earring binge! I got sent a whole pile of beads from thailand and just had to make earrings. Some of these I had for a while and finally decided what I was going to do with them.

they do indeed, rock your face. It's a really nice job, and the stripey fabric is lovely

and give me ideas... maybe I should look into getting my own face rocked. I want one of those.

they're really, really, really pretty.
I love the one with the flower pin!
7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: beginner sewing machine recommendations? on: February 12, 2006 06:07:30 AM
I just got my first machine and... it's a frister&rossmann cub sp and I love it! It's a bit heavy, but it has it's own carry case so is technically portable. It was about 120, but I can see it lasting for years and years as it covers all the basic stitches, does buttonholes, zips and stretchy fabric.
8  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Re: Stiff Shoes. on: February 12, 2006 06:00:54 AM
try using dubbin... it's a type of wax that makes leather more supple (as well as protecting it). I use it on most of my doc martens as it is pretty much the business.

it's possible, as long as you have infinite patience and fingertips of steel - it takes much much longer, but you feel a real sense of achievement when you're done!
just make sure your stitches are really small and neat, so that your seams are strong.

I saw a recommendation for this place http://stores.ebay.co.uk/i-like-to-make-stuff_Preorder-fabrics-Custom_W0QQcolZ4QQdirZQ2d1QQftidZ2QQtZkm either on here or CrAftermath.

I can't find the thread, but you'd have more luck asking on the UK board (or on CrAftermath). Sorry I can't be more helpful!
