I like the look!  How do you 'iron' onto leather?  Doesn't the heat cause problems with leather?

I guess I'm a bit confused ... and not sure how to respond to the fact that so many people looked at this post, yet not one person commented?  Strange.   Huh

It makes one feel pretty ignored.   Sad

Nobody has anything to say about Baby Winter, not one person?

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / T-shirt Re-construction Question ... on: July 21, 2006 02:51:01 PM
There must be ways of doing this!

I'm taking a regular round neck t-shirt, and cutting out the neck, I'm left with the edge from the pinking shears. OK ... now I'm folding back, turning inside out and using bias iron-on tape to hold in place. I'm then sewing buttons along the neckline outside, then using liquid thread to glue another smaller button on top of that one.

What's happening is when I put it on, the 3 middle buttons in front, are drooping downward, seems top-heavy, but even when I removed the smaller button on top of larger button, they still droop. :-(

Problem may be that I sewed the buttons to come half-way up over the neckline (fabric), I probably should have sewed them down further, right?

Is there anything to do now, or do I have to remove the buttons and sew them down further?

Thanks for your help! It's cute anyway ... when I fix this, it'll be a really neat T. I'm gonna do this with all my round neck T's, cause I hate round necks, but they're always on sale, so I stock up.

ALSO: wanted to ask, what would I use/buy to place around outside of neckline to cover up the ragged edge when I cut it out?  Is there curved rick-rack, or something that's especially for that?

Looking forward to your suggestions!

8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Question on hand sewing stuffed creatures together ... on: June 28, 2006 05:49:07 PM

I'd like to try and make an all hand-sewn stuffed character, but I've never done it and not too familiar with what stitch to use.  I'm not even very familiar with stitches at all ... so I need some help in learning them and then how to apply that to sew up felt toys.

I've seen some that you guys do and the seam is SO neat, wow .. hope I can learn to do that!

Anybody here care to share .. and help me out?

Just wondering ... what would you guys recommend as the best quality brand transfer paper?

More professional quality is what I need.

10  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Wholesale? What percentage is the norm? on: June 25, 2006 06:29:55 AM
The norm would be 20-60%! If you can't afford 60%, there's no point in pricing it that way. You have to figure your costs and time and find a minimum amount you can live with, profit-wise, and don't forget that many wholesale buyers expect to return merchandise they don't sell. Then you might have to let it go for below even that smaller profit.

Good Morning CC,

Thank you ... but I'm going to be the one buying wholesale.  :-)

So what I was asking is, how much might I expect most crafters to sell wholesale at?  And what if they've never sold wholesale and don't know what to discount and ask me what I would prefer?  I have no idea ...

Thanks again,
