1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: Has anyone used DFN floss? on: February 02, 2006 09:21:11 PM
I bought a large pack of it some time ago, like a couple of years, and it seemed ok. I bought another pack of different colors a few months back and it is horrible! It knots and breaks way too much. Thought about taking it back and complaining, but I can use it for other stuff. Hope someone else has better luck with it.
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Need to earn $3000 by April, need quick and easy purse ideas to make and sell on: January 28, 2006 10:09:29 PM
With summer coming on, you could turn your long jeans into shorts for the summer and have material to use for purses. Just cut the length off the leg, leave this piece with the right side out; sew the hemmed end shut. You can add beads or some other trim to the bottom. For the top, sew a circle about the size of a quarter using a satin stitch, about 2 inches down from the top, clip out the center. Turn under about 1/4 inch and sew, or serge if the material is not too thick; then turn under again 1 to 2 inches, making sure this part is just below the hole you just made. Sew all the way around This will be the pocket for your drawstring. You can use rope or make a drawstring from more of the jean material. If you want a bag with the string on both sides, just put holes in both sides. With no raw ends showing, you don't need a liner. You can get as fancy as you want with the drawstrings or trim. Have fun and good luck!
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Please Help! - I Need A Sewing Table on: January 28, 2006 09:47:47 PM
First try a thrift shop, like Salvation Army or Goodwill. If you can't find one, make one. I, personally, like using my kitchen table or one that size. It comes in handy when you are sewing things with lots of material or pieces. Since you are just starting out, a desk would be good. Look for an older one with the pull outs on each side. These are great for putting things on when you are sewing. One of this type also gives you space to keep patterns and all the sewing goodies together. Have fun!!!!
