21  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Boyfriend going to college "remember me" gift? on: May 29, 2007 03:00:50 PM
You could make him a bunch of stuff he'd need for school with pictures of you two together, or just you on it; ie, Binder covers, Pencils that have your names on them, a messenger bag with your names stitched into the flap, so everytime he opens it, he will see your name...

You should draw him some pictures of Hiro and Claire and Peter on bookmarks; you could make a whole Heroes set! 
23  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: round cord elastic on: May 29, 2007 02:03:23 PM
If the elastic is all manmade fibres, you can melt the ends.  Also serging that is very tight, or a tight zig-zag stitch will seal it off.  Hope that helps! -Lisa
24  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Can this sweatshirt be helped? on: May 29, 2007 01:57:06 PM
hmmm... I'm not sure; you are probably opposed to patches, right?  You could revamp it so you still have the sweatshirt, but into something new; there's a sweatshirt-into-jacket tute here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=59440.10

or you could combine it with another sweatshirt to make a hoodie like in this tute:

There are more tutes on different reconscruction here:

I hope that helps.  I know the feeling when your favourite item gets all worn out... it's sad.. Sad    -Lisa
25  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: how could i make this dress?? on: May 29, 2007 01:48:56 PM
I think that if you used this tutorial;
andwith something solid like satin for the bottom but baste on gathered tulle or organze that was about 3x as wide before gathering on top of the solid before sewing it all to the top, you would get the same effect.  (Oh, and lengthen it, since this is a shirt tutorial!!)  Hope that helps; I get help you more if you like; just pm me. -Lisa
26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to hem jersy skirt? on: May 29, 2007 01:33:59 PM
A quick and easy way I like is to just serge the edges, and then fold it up once and sew a 1/4" from the edge.  that prevent curling, and has a nice finish.  Also if you have a serger that can do rolled hems, you can pull the material as you serge it to get that rippl-ey effect.  ( You don't hem it; you just leave the serged edges.) Hope that helps! -Lisa
27  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: help with cute jersey dress on: May 29, 2007 01:27:22 PM
I think I have that exact pattern!  hmm.... *rummaging through vast amounts of patterns....*  Aha!  Butterick #3099.  It's a teenstyle, and super easy!  Good Luck!
28  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: wwyd w/this vintage dress - its needs tlc! on: May 29, 2007 01:22:05 PM
If you like lace, you could find some and applique it over the dots.  Also, if you wanted to keep it white, you could put a white ribbon on the waist, and if you wanted to keep the whole lace them going, you could stitch lace over the fold instead of a ribbon.  It's a beautiful dress!  If there's a bit of material inside (like a facing or something) you can try dipping that in water to see if it shrinks or discolours.  Most DryClean only clothes can be washed by hand, and then laid flat to dry.  Good Luck!

ooo!  Risque! I love this!  The lacing up the side is really cool; and the sheer material adds to the mystique!
