11  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Keeping the backing from bunching when quilting on a regular machine? on: August 24, 2009 05:35:40 PM
Any suggestions?  I've made a few baby quilts and a queen size quilt, and while I thought I had them pinned tight, after rolling and moving them to fit on my regular sewing machine, THere always seems to be parts of the back that bunch, fold, whatever.  What am I doing wrong?
12  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Torchwood Swap *edit* doctor who/ Torchwood on: August 17, 2009 02:45:31 PM
So I've recently been sucked into (and subsequently obsessed with) Torchwood.  I would love to do a swap of this, I know there have been some DW/TW swaps in the past.  I dunno that I could organize, thats the only problem
13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Pattern suggestions? on: April 25, 2008 07:17:48 AM
Everyone here seems to have a great eye for what are good patterns (I have the hardest time finding patterns to match ideas in my head)
I'm looking for a pattern that would work to make a japanese school girl uniform


Any help is appreciated.

14  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Naruto Cosplay Hinata and Sakura (First craft post!) on: April 03, 2008 09:01:51 PM
I've been a lurker for forever but this is my first craft post, be gentle.  This spring break we took my stepdaughters to an anime convention.  The older one is quite obsessed and the small one is getting into it.  The little one is dressed as Sakura from Naruto.  I made the dress and the shoes, the shorts and the headband are store bought.  The older is dressed as Hinata from Naruto.  I bought the hoodie, dyed it, embroidered the patches and sewed on the fur trim.  I also made "Ninja" shoes for her.

15  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Pattern help on: March 31, 2008 10:38:38 PM
Does anyone know of a good kids dress pattern to make a fluffy pinafore dress like this?  I know I'd probably have to purchase a petticoat to get the full effect.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

16  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Eureka 7/ Anemone cosplay help? on: February 11, 2008 05:59:49 PM
Ok, I'd like to make an anemone costume for my stepdaughter for an anime convention in march.  Im not a wonderful sewer, Im  new to it.  I made her a eureka one about 2 years ago, but it looks very amature.
Does anyone have any pattern suggestions?  I was sorta leaning towards getting a white tank top and trying to make a circle skirt and attaching them, but Im not sure how to make it poof.

for reference.

Thanks so much!
17  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Valentine's gift for someone who's being "unromantic" on: February 02, 2007 09:28:05 AM
Ok, so my fiance and I both sorta think valentines is a little overdone, overcomercialized, etc.  Still doesnt mean I dont want to do a little something.  Last yr I went all out the weekend before (since Vday was a weekeday), cooked candles etc... and I dont know that he really cared that much.  Not that he was mean...but

So I asked him if he wanted to do anything this yr.  He said, we'll I guess not.  It falls on a weekday, so we'll have his two daughters (tehy stay with us during the week) and we'll have them the weekend before Vday so the oldest can have a sleepover....
SO I guess what Im asking (long windedly...sorry) is whats something I can do for/make for him thats sweet and shows I care, but isnt too much that he's going to look at it and cringe inwardly that its too dumb and girly.

I was going to get him a dvd, but I want to give him something from the heart too.

Any suggestions from other girls out there with decidedly "unromantic" significant others
18  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Other patterns, things to add on: November 06, 2006 11:31:07 AM
I love Jenny's patterns and am getting ready to start stitching.  I was just wondering where people get other patterns online.  I saw one on here (sorry I forgot by who), they did a pin up tea towel and they used a image of a pin up girl they found else where. 
I was wondering, what other sites do you all use to mix and match images with Jenny's on your projects?  (im specifically looking for pin ups and flamingos)
19  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / first vacation on: June 13, 2006 07:58:30 AM
My fiance and I are taking our first real vacation together next week and I wanted to make him a little kit.  Im not sure what all to put in it, and I'd like to keep it under $20 if possible.  All I have so far is a cd of "road trip" songs.  We're going to Wyoming to see my family and friends, so I thought a book of wyoming but I dont know what else
