1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My first two purses ever!!! on: August 13, 2006 02:19:25 PM
Well, I finished both of these purses about 3 weeks ago. Since no one seems to know what's wrong with my sewing machine, I had to do it all by hand, that's right By Hand!! It was hard work, but well worth it when I saw the end product. There was no specific pattern, I just did whatever came to my head. The first one was made fom a pink blouse that was stained. The second one was from a big purple skirt.

Here is the pink tote made from a blouse. BTW, those are cupcakes, not parachutes, lol



Here is the purple purse..Its my favorite. I dont have any interfacing so its a little flimsy


..So do ya like?

3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / HOW DO YOU LIFT THE DARN BOBBIN THREAD??? please help!!! on: May 29, 2006 08:47:21 PM
I know you all have seen this sooo many times...and ive looked at the old posts, but i still dont see the solution to MY problem,

All of the things ive looked at give very detailed instuctions on how to thread the top thread, but when it comes to the bottom bobbin..its very vague instructions i see
Cry

I bought a 20 dollar Handy Trends Perfect Seamstress...it was waay in the back of the shelf at my local bargain store..so it is probably old. aside from the fact that the built in lightbulb blew out after truning it on twice,,the machine sewed perfectly...then the problem came when i wanted to re thread the machine.

on the instructions on how to insert the bottom bobbin it says: Place the new bobbin inside the magnatized compartment with about 3" long thread left.....THREAD LEFT WHERE? The picture doesnt show..all it shows is the top thread. on some posts i read that you leave the thread hanging out. then how is it going to catch? i think that this is the only problem....maybe the bobbin isnt in correctly, but how in the hell do i put it in..im soo stressed and sad..some one please help me



p.s: can some one also tell me how to take the top thread bobbin out cause it wont budge.....

Hi!

My camera's on strike right now, but anyway, i have these white "leather"  mary janes that look so ugly to me..This is the closest resemblance to them

Mine are similar to those..minus the checkered pattern and mine were 3 dollars, not $260 like these.

Anyway, im stuck with this project.  should i use paint? fabric? what kind ofr paint or fabric? so many questions so little time. does anyone have any ingenious ideas or pictures for ispiration?

Thanks
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / "logotype" stencils.i guess?? need help on: March 19, 2006 12:38:16 AM
HI ALL!

I finally bought some freezer paper. Now I want to make a witty shirt. I dont want it to have a saying on it but I want it to have a company logo thats nationally known, such as wal-mart or something. I can"t think of the word for it but I want it to have a logo but with but with different words than the original. I don"t know what to Google in order to find these logos though.

This is the only design that is similar to what im talking about>>>

....(THIS ONE IS TOO CONTROVERSIAL TO ME)

BUT I HOPE IM MAKING SENSE..I JUST WANT THE DESIGN TO LOOK THE SAME, BUT FOR IT TO HAVE DIFFERENT WORDS. CAN SUM1 HELP ME FIGURE OUT WHAT I CAN GOOGLE. IM SURE THERES SOME MORE OF THESE OUT THERE.

(SORRY ABOUT ALL CAPS. MY KEYBOARD IS ON STRIKE:)
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / sweater vest questions on: February 23, 2006 10:58:57 PM
Hi everyone! I hope I'm posting in the right area. But anyway, im new to the crafting thing and i've been wanting to do a recon. clothing project form a while. I've decided that i wanted to make a sweater vest. I dont have the "funds" right now to buy any material so the two potential shirts i'll be making it out of are a red turtleneck sweater that looks somewhat like this (digital camera is broken)....



i also have a grey sweater..but i cant find a good look alike to show you all.

Anyway, it may seem easy to you veteran crafsters, but I dont know what to do with the sleeve part after i cut the sleeves off. I also don't know how to "fix" the neck line.I dont know how to explain it, but i want the sleeves and neck line to look somewhat like this...


 Every tutorial i see on here is for knitters, but im a rookie so all i want to do is reconstruct these shirts. thanks in advance if you can help.
