1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Aquatics paper - "creative soluble paper" on: September 14, 2007 07:17:28 AM
Ok I just bought some paper, after reading about "sulky" water soluble paper on here. This stuff looks almost the same it's called aquatics paper. But I'm so scared to use it. It says it's ok for hand embroidery (what I want to do really is just have random patterns) The instructions are for this really crazy mini project that I don't understand. Such as, choose a piece of tissue lame and cut to size, and I don't have a clue what tissue lame is?

What I'm basically trying to do is move on from iron on transfers to embroider something new. But it seems I'm not going to be able to do it with this paper becuase I don't understand the instructions. I'm also scared I've wasted money on something I'll mess up. and feeling very uninspired :s

Just wondered if anyone out there could offer any advice? Do I just draw on it, (well I'll trace) pin it to the fabric and sew right through it?

Why do instructions decide I also want to add glitter chiffon and tissue lame?
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Any help welcome for a new girl please on: December 17, 2005 04:19:17 PM
Hello, I've been looking around the site for a while, checking lots out but I find everything a bit daunting. I'm getting a sewing machine for Christmas and haven't used one for a couple of years. I've also never followed a pattern in my life, the only sewing I've done was at school with little instruction and basically did whatever held the two pieces of fabric together. I mean, I could use it, but I don't really know how to make stuff look as amazing as it all does now. So I was basically wondering if anyone had some tips of what I could start out with, and any must need buys or anything else. I can't do much else sewingy except cross stitch. Well thanks everyone for all the great inspiration on this site.
