Here is a flag that hubby and I designed and I made to fly outside our house. We're great admirers of steampunk aesthetic, so we tried to imagine what kind of Jolly Roger airship pirates might fly. Here's what we came up with:
Hello everyone, I am a novice sewer and I want to make a flag as a gift for my husband. What I've designed is a light colored emblem on a dark field, similar to a Jolly Roger. I want to make it double-sided and appropriate for hanging outside. I'm looking for websites, books, and/or advice for proper construction techniques for the flag, and resources to buy fabric. I found UV protected weather resistant nylon at Joanns.com, but they have limited color selection. Ideally, I'd like to find a light tan fabric and a dark brown fabric. Any help you can offer would be terrific!
My husband and I will be hosting a house party next weekend to celebrate our recent marriage, and I'm trying to plan a menu. I am a vegetarian, as is another guest, and we also have a vegan friend who is coming. I'm already definately serving homemade pita chips and hummus, spiced nuts, and dark chocolate covered strawberries. I need ideas for more vegan friendly snacks, and more importantly, a really good vegan dessert. My sister will be bringing a traditional chocolate wedding cake, but I want to serve another sweet that everyone can enjoy.
I got a Soyabella soymilk maker for Christmas, and just made my first batch of soymilk. The machine worked great, the soymilk is tasty, but I have a problem. I usually use store bought (refridgerated-section) soymilk to use in my coffee. So I tried my homemade soymilk in coffee, and it curdled! Sigh. Has anyone had problems with curdled soymilk?
Hello all. We will be celebrating my parents 30th wedding anniversary in October, and my sister and I are trying to come up with a meaningful gift for them. My parents are 47 and 44 and they love the outdoors. They just got back from a trip to Alaska, which was their treat to themselves for their anniversary, and they can't stop talking about how big and beautiful it is up there. They said the pictures they took just don't do it justice. Dad also loves to garden, and Mom volunteers for both the American Heart Association and the Red Cross as a CPR instructor. Any thoughts?
I was checking out the recon tut page, and I see tuts for making a shirt smaller, but I need help to make mine bigger! I ordered two threadless tees in their largest girlie size, but their biggest isn't big enough. I love the shirts and can't wear them. I wear a size 18-20 and I'm guessing they're a 14-16. I can get in them but its a realllllly tight squeeze. Any experienced reconners out there who can point me in the right direction?
Hello all. Just got my very own sewing machine! I've only ever sewed on someone elses, psyched now I have one to keep. I want to make a crochet hook holder, and I'm looking for patterns/tuts. So far I found this one http://craftydaisies.com/2007/03/14/crochet-hook-case/, but was hoping the sewing peeps out there would have more ideas. Thanks!
