3  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!

4  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
Hiya,

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?

Thanks,
Dee

So ... I got sick of my plain t-shirts and not having any money to buy clothes, decided to alter one of them.

Started out with a plain grey xx large t-shirt and this is the end result:

I look kinda odd in this photo for 2 reasons:  I'm in allot of pain ... and I was leaning forward ...

One question: it's falling off the shoulders cause I cut too wide ... any ideas to fix that?

Thanks,
Dee

Got one question though.  You probably can't tell from photo, but it's a bit big on shoulders, it tends to fall off my shoulders, how would I fix that?

Thanks!

9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / How Do I Do My First Swap OR Become A Swap Angel? on: May 14, 2006 03:28:14 AM
Good Morning! Cheesy

I'd like to either join my first swap or become a swap angel, but not quite sure how to go about it.  The swap forums and threads are very confusing to me, and I'm confused as where to start, since it seems like all swaps are 'closed'.

How does one go about becoming an angel? Do I respond to the 'angel needed' posts?

Also, I read that there is a classified area, those asking for personal swaps?  Where is that found?

Looking forward to hearing!
Hugs,
Dee
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Another Strap Question ... on: May 10, 2006 07:58:10 AM
OK .. I've read through all the tutorials, but I'm still having trouble with the straps on the purses I'm doing and HOW I want to do it.   Undecided

I need to make this as easy as possible, cause for one thing ... right now I"m going thru a horrible experience in my life, and my brain is NOT functioning normally ... things don't stick.  So what I'm doing is sewing the straps inside when I sew up the sides ... yet they're coming out backwards.  I turned them right side to right side when I sew them, isn't that right?

Guess I need a really easy way to do this ... any help out there?

I'll take a pic of one of the purses later and show you.
