When the nap is "upside down" in garments, it is usually on purpose. They (industry people) say it gives a richer color and has less "shading" (when the pattern pieces look different colors because of the angle or direction they were cut in).
Personally, I can't help rubbing it the 'right' way!  Tongue

Really inspiring thread! I have a kist full of fabric and 2 boxes of odd yarns that I need to use up! If only there was more time in the day!

6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Geeky Boyfriend's Birthday...? on: November 07, 2008 09:56:31 AM
not sure bout the games ones, but there are plenty of quick easy geeky things u could make.
maybe keyboard keyrings (like the 'home' button for his house keys, or spell out his name), even make fridge magnets from the keys. otherwise the inside of the keyboard makes a really cool looking wallet (an u can put it together with sticky tape Smiley ) there's a tutorial on that somewhere here, jus do a search.
mayb make clay things from the game?

hope this helps.

at college all the silk screens are made with a fine silk fabric (hence the name i think?  Wink )
try habotai or some kind of silk blend. if money is an issue just use something with a very fine weave. that might be why its coming out splotchy.
hope this helps!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Arabian Nights (well day...hmmm)[like a camera...PIC HEAVY] on: June 02, 2008 01:30:10 PM
I entered a competition on Saturday, the theme was "Romantic Fantasy"
Think it went a lil too genie in a bottle, but it was alota fun to make!

This is a friend who also entered (modeling her own stuff), me in the middle, and my model on the right.


I made these boots from scratch! they gave me some issues, but worked out well in the end!

Well, let me no what u think!
preciate al ur comments, suggestions and the like.

If you find the lacing on the back rolls around a single strip of ridgeline or other plastic boning on either side should help with that (and it's still machine washable).  (I had a similar dress with a very open back and encountered that problem.)

thanx for the tip, might wana make another one - ill def keep this in mind!

regardin the 50s style thing: i drafted the pattern for a project we had at tech. we had to make the dress "50's style" by which my lecturer meant waist defined with a big poofy skirt (u should see the one i made for the project, it has a million layers of tulle underneath... Cheesy). so, yes, it isnt strictly 1950's style...

thanx for all ur comments!
