21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Best glue for metal and fabric on: September 17, 2006 09:36:06 AM
I have a metal cigarette case, and I feel like it needs to be jazzed up a bit. I would love to glue in some scraps of velvet or brocade, but I have no experience with adhesives. I've searched this, and haven't found anything helpful on the subject. Would something like crazy glue work, or would that stain or otherwise damage the fabric?

Thanks.
22  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Removing Color from Foil Printing on a shirt on: September 17, 2006 09:29:44 AM
I got this t shirt over the internet, and the design on it is really cute. The only problem is, the picture on the web site made it appear as though it was just white screen print. When I got the shirt, I found out it was really a gold foil design. I'm not a gold kind of girl, and I was wondering if there is any way to change/remove the gold from the foil. I really love it other than that, and I hate to see it go to waste.


If there isn't a way to remove the color, is there perhaps something I could do to cover it up?
23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How would you make straps/buckles like this. on: August 16, 2006 06:23:27 PM

I have the basic construction of this shirt down. I've made a couple of similiar projects. I was just wondering if anyone has any ideas regarding the buckles that go across the front (particularly the way they conect to the shirt.) How would I make the little pointy things? Would I cut the fabric that way and stitch it on, or is there something more complicated than that involved?

Sorry for the re-post, but I put it in the wrong board by mistake, and I'm new so I don't know how to move it back...

25  UNITED STATES / South Carolina / Edgefield/Aiken Craftsters? on: August 05, 2006 12:37:49 PM
I live in Edgefield, and was wondering if there were any Craftsters in this area. It would be cool to meet up some time, or discuss good stores around here for getting stuff.
26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Hem question on: August 01, 2006 07:49:09 AM
I searched the site but didn't find a post that answered my question. I recently made a gabradine skirt, and the waist band and the bottom hem are done in a satin bias tape. (it laces up in the back with a ribbon, and this ties that detail in with the rest of the skirt). Anyways, the strip at the top lies rather nicely, but the bottom of the skirt is lying rather strangely.  The skirt flares out at the bottom. Since the strip looks like it's sewn on straight, I was wondering if I didn't sew it on properly, or if the bias strip is just a little too thick. Should I do something to correct the bottom of the skirt and leave the bias strip, or is it going to be necessary to remove the strip and hem it in another way? Thanks in advance.
