Hey everyone! Sorry for the text only post but I am looking for somewhere to buy those metal rings that you can use for purse handles? I'm not even sure what they are ideally used for, but I know they look like big bangles .. and I want them big enough to fit around my wrists. If anyone gets the jist of what I am trying to ask for and knows of a Canadian site where I might be able to order these from it would be much appreciated if you could leave me a link to it! Thanks so much!!
Hi everyone, Theres a big Halloween event downtown this weekend and me and my friends are going. I just went out to walmart and bought a few metres of blue satin material to try and whip a version of this up in two days. Think its possible? Does anyone have any ideas on how to make a shirt and skirt like that and possibly join them together? The rest is a breeze. I got the leg/arm warmers and the accessories like the belt with the star and whatnot. Any suggestions would help!
Hey everyone, I'm gonna be making some purses to sell at some craft fairs in the upcoming weeks. I was just wondering if anyone could give me a general measurement dimension for a purse that would be a good average size bag. Not too big, not too small. I plan on making them somewhat close to the jordy style. I would appreciate any suggestions for measurements! Thanks!
Hey everyone, I'm not sure if I have posted these before (because I post my finished items on several sites), but here are a couple of stencils I've done! The Jim Morrison stencil was later turned into a bag much like the Jimi Hendrix one:
ok .. i searched and searched but i have no idea where this topic should go so i'm putting it here. lol. i'm fairly new to the sewing machines. i only learned how to use them this year. my mother has a new machine and i have been using hers to teach myself all the ropes of sewing. its been going great ... and i havent been having any minor hitches until today. the tension seems to be messed up on my machine. when i sew .. the under-thread is all loose and all over the place. it still sews but the thread is not sewing straight and its kind of loose in places and a little sig-zaggy (though i am not using the zig zag stitch option) . i tried EVERYTHING to fix it and my mother even had a go at it .. but neither of us can figure out the problem. so .. i'm turning to all you sewing experts for help. any ideas? troubleshooting? your help will be much appreciated since i am in crafting withdrawl not having my machine in standard operation! thanks so much!!!
