what marypoppins said and while you are doing that, make sure you oil it really well.

the problem could be the bobbin tension too but thats the last thing you should alter.

and this could be combined with what I really needed today

a kind of inspiration board, as in a totally random...make me type thing. I know that the whole of craftster could be inspirational, but if there was a 'try this new/easy/different thing' board it could be fun!

I loved this idea so much that I used it in my sitting room, it has a large unusually shaped chimney breast and this has worked perfectly. I have a large mirror in front of the fireplace at the moment because I haven't been using it. I added a couple of sets of feather wings above the papers (I adore feathers!) and there are always lillies and candles and sheepskins around

Everyone that comes into the house either loves it or hates it, 99% of them love it!

well I've been idly surfing this site all morning, about to head upstairs to my sewing machine to do something but having read this tutorial, I am going up now!! I am making buckets

I got some awesome skeleton fabric from ammasmama in a dios de los muertos swap and that is about to become a bucket, maybe a smallish one for my bathroom shelf to store make-up and stuff.


watch this space

Ok so I have made my first one (30 minutes not bad!) its a small one and supposed to be 10cm square, but its more like 9X11 because I didnt cut out the squares very well, I used three layers as the skeleton fabric was very lightweight, but even with a stiffish inner layer it was more rounded on top, so I top-sewed on the outside of each corner, from top to bottom, taking in just about 1 mm, this makes it sit square and gives a little more stability.

here it is



and the action shot


off now to make some more! Thanks for this tutorial!

I love your wreath it is amazing, and I have a question about the bendy mummys. I've seen lots of yarn wrapped nightmare before christmas type figures, is it from Nighmare before christmas? or something else, and do you know of any tutorial to make them becuase my daughter loves them

3329  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / 12 days of christmas swap on: November 09, 2007 01:02:11 AM
Last year I missed out on this swap (I did angel for it though) and it sounded great. I cant find a link to the previous round, but basically you sent one item for the first day, two for the second etc etc. They were all sent as one large package, but individually wrapped so the recipient could open them each day (if they had sufficient self control!!)

Its a big swap but great, Is anyone planning on organising it this year?? Anyone interested?
