442  Florida / Florida: Central / Re: Central Florida crafters!! where are you?? on: April 30, 2008 04:42:32 PM
I frequent the Apopka, Longwood, Altamonte area stores a lot.  of course there's JoAnn but bleh.  Second home on 441 in Apopka across from Apopka Land shopping center has Simplicity patterns for $1, they are used but nonetheless a buck.  They also have craft supplies and get new stuff in all the time.  Across the street from there is Goodwill which I find to be a bust, they just seem to have crap.  There is a store in  Longwood off Wekiva Springs road near Hunt Club called KNIT.  I've never been there but I can only guess what they have!  Smiley  There is also a store called Another's Treasures on 441 across from the AOK tire mart.  Never been in there but they have antiques, used goods who knows what kind of goodies you might be able to find.  There is also Thrift Zone which has craft supplies, fabric remnants and other notions (zippers, buttons, notions) they are at the corner of 441 and Sheeler in Apopka.  There is also Pearl craft store in Casselberry on 436.  For the quilers there is Material Girl on 441 in Apopka just a couple blocks past Park Avenue and QUILT on 436 in Apopka in the same shopping center as the DMV. 
Hope this list helped shed some light on the lesser known stores in  the area.  Anyone wanna get together let me know I love plundering for treasure!

That is freakin' great!  I would make that into a big fluffy pink pillow and throw it on my couch.  Maybe use some frilly pink fabric around the outside and leave it for everyone to see.  AWESOME!!!

Thanks for your compliments everyone!  My mom is a garage sale junkie (so that's where I get it...) and she loves rolling pins can't pass one up, I thought about making some kind of mobile to hang in the kitchen from the ceiling almost like a windchime but I thought that might be too heavy. 

It does look like a loaf of bread!  I hadn't noticed that until you mentioned it! 

Wish me luck on the rolling pin of doom quest!

So, my mom has like 50 rolling pins and we were trying to find something to do with them and we wanted to hang them on the wall but couldn't get over the round edge.  So VOILA!  Sand down the edge so it's flat and will hang flush then BAM it hit me!  Make slats in it with the saws-all so I can put letters, recipe cards, whatever will fit in there!  Now for something else to do with the other 49...

I'm just in the middle of making the same pattern.  Yours looks really well tailored.  I have 2 questions:  Does your fabric have any stretch to it and did you use interfacing and/or lining??
The fabric had a very minimal amount of stretch to it I also sized down one size than my measurements came out to be so it would be snug and it is lined with the same fabric on the vest.  It turned out to be really hot that way and I wish it would have just been unlined but I think the lining gave it the great fit.  The shirt (white part) and the skirt ( underneath) were sewn together at the waist, and I added 6 inches to the skirt because it was a micro mini, then the fitted vest went over top of that.  Overall I was very pleased with the pattern I made it (cutting included) in one day.

Thanks for all the compliments, I also forgot to mention that it is reversible!  How cool two bags in one.  Especially with a simple enclosure such as a button you could turn it inside out and noone would know!  I hope this tute was helpful, good luck to all and I hope to see some pictures!

Hope you likey!
