271  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: Which should I make? on: March 09, 2006 04:28:51 PM
They're both really well made. Nice job. If I were a mother, I'd probably go for something that's easy to open and close quickly. Lots of zippers and flaps can be a hassle sometimes, but magnets are quick and easy. For fabric, I like the striped material you lined the shoulder bag with.

Once upon a time there were too hand-me-down shirts. One was too short. The other one had a stain. Little did they know, however, that one day they would join forces (or join seams at least) to create a bright, fun, unstained and perfectly fitting top.

And they all lived happily ever after!
273  CLOTHING / Clothing Sewalongs / Re: Promalong - Making your own Prom dress? Join the club! on: March 09, 2006 03:12:21 PM
I made my dress for junior prom last year. I'm really proud of it because I designed it myself and I didn't use a pattern or anything. The material is cheap but nice polyester satin.

It took me about a week to make it. I know I should have given myself more time. I will this year. It was really fun to make, and the skirt was really fun to dance in because there's so much material in it and it was so light and billowy. The one thing I don't like about it is the back. I have a pretty unusually shaped back, so I should have spent more time on getting that to fit right. Well, I learned my lesson.

A really easy solution, if you're stuck with a straight stitch, could be to stretch the fabric as you feed it through the machine. This may not be the best choice in all situations with all seams, but it's quick and easy, and the seam won't rip when the fabric stretches.

You should make some thin black straps so it looks like the headphone wire keeps going. Nice job.

Wow, that's so cute and very well-made. How do you get in and out of it though? Is there a zipper or buttons? or does it stretch? I love the fabric. Great job.
277  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Corduroy Newsboy Hat on: March 03, 2006 01:16:57 PM
I made this hat out of a worn out corduroy jacket. The hardest part was the bill because I had to sew a piece of plastic between the corduroy and the lining and keep everything straight and super tight. It turned out really nice for not having a pattern though. I'm proud of it. Here are some pictures--

Stitching on the bill (kinda sloppy looking, but it gives the rest of the hat the right shape):

I don't really know how to give a tutorial except by making another one and taking pictures along the way. So if anyone's heart is set on it, just let me know.
