1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I need this shirt (now with links) on: May 08, 2008 12:12:44 AM
I posted this in the needlework section but I figured someone here could help me so here we go...

After seeing this video I went to check out Girl Popcorn's esty shop were I stumbled upon this awesome top and I fell in love. Problem is... it's not my size but I figured I can make it. So I run out and bought an embroidery foot, stabilizer, sharpies and tape.

side note:I did make a bootleg butterfly (I think its kinda cute...but bootleg none the less). So not a total waste of money. I even printed out a dragonfly for my next freehand embroidery project.

Now I want to attempt this top and I am not sure where to start. I do know that you use the stabilizer to keep the shape but not real sure what happens to the fabric. If anyone could help (something with pictures would be AMAZING!) I would be forever grateful.http://

3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / I made another outfit on: September 02, 2007 09:45:02 PM
I am trying to free up some space on my camera so here are a few of me hanging out at the beach in an outfit I made. I know they don't really show the details much but you get the idea.




4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Question:finishing v-necks on: May 16, 2007 11:04:08 PM
I am making a v-neck chiffon top for a coworker and I am used to sewing knits so I am not sure how to finish the neck line. The neck line is the only thing keeping me from finishing the top. I usually do french binding on my knits but I don't think that is gonna work. I just don't want the neck line to gape or bunch or anything funky. I don't want to face it because it's a sheer fabric and I want it to be as see through as possible. So I'm stuck; Help me please.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / I made an outfit (lot's o pics) on: April 13, 2007 05:07:29 PM
This is the outfit I made and I wore to work today. The shirt is a recon from two basic t-shirts and the skirt is from scratch.





I name the clothes that I make and this shirt is "Emo Poetry" because when my husband saw it he was like "I like your emo shirt."

So here is my emo face:




This is my first fly zipper thingy I am so proud.


here is my silly face Tongue
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Look what I got! on: March 30, 2007 10:44:54 PM
I am so excited one of my coworkers gave me BAGS of fabric. Its like over 20 different kinds of fashion fabric all well over 2 yards of each. It took me forever to prewash and fold it all and she gave me 4 books. Now I just have to figure out where to put it and what to make.

lookie:





7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / help with an apron on: March 27, 2007 10:01:48 PM
A coworker of mine made the cutest crayon apron and she was telling me how she did it, she made the straps different than I had ever seen or heard of.  the waist band and the straps were one piece, she said she cut a long strip of fabric and placed the apron and the straps right sides together sewed it, folded it over,  then sewed the straps together and  then turned them. It ended up looking kinda like binding on the apron she said she used a tube turner on the straps.

I might be missing some steps somewhere but I wasn't understanding how thats done, so if anyone knows what I am talking about and can explain it to me I would be so grateful.

8  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Help with my single fold bias binder on: January 06, 2007 07:06:02 PM
I just bought the babylock evolve and some additional attachments came with it. So I am teaching myself to use them and I am getting the hang of it for the most part. I was having some difficulties with the feller and the gathering foot but I got it. The current problem is with my single fold bias binder. My fabric keeps bunching and I want to use it so bad but hadn't gotten passed to practice with my muslin. If anyone knows how to help me fix it I would be ever so grateful. I included a picture of what it looks like. Thanks in advance
