401  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: want curtains, but I rent! on: June 28, 2004 01:49:50 PM
Dumb question, are venitian blinds the ones that hang vertically or horizonatally?  I had the ones that hung veritically and cut small holes in the top of the fabric and hooked it onto the hooks that hold up the blinds.  You probably couldn't do this with heavy fabric but it works fairly well.  And I was still able to pull the blinds to the side without taking them down.

maybe drill holes and make Scrabble jewelery
403  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: How To Put Aida Fabric On A Bag on: June 28, 2004 01:03:31 PM
I would serge, zig zag, or fray check the edges so that they don't fray.  You didn't mention if you were using the cross-stitched piece as a front of the bag or if it's going to be placed on another fabric.  If you're going to use it to make the bag, I would put either some coordinating fabric or stablilizer underneath as aida isn't very stiff.  Hope this helps!

You could trace the letters on the bag and then use your machine to sew them with a satin stitch.

I think that you could use any fabric as long as it's heavily interfaced to give it that stiffness.

Joann's Fabric has Peanuts cotton fabric which might be a good choice if you were going for an overall theme

Maybe use something like Fray-Check to keep the ends from unravelling?  I've never used it on a cut sweater but it seems like it might work.
408  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: Looking for Tattoo for embroidery on: June 24, 2004 10:37:34 AM
I would look in tattoo magazines or tattoo flash books.  I have 2 Sailor Jerry stencil books which have outlines of many of his popular designs.  They're perfect for embroidery as they are printed in black like only.  Or you may be able to get some designs off of his site.  Hope this is somewhat helpful
409  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Re: I WANNA SILKSCREEN! on: June 21, 2004 12:05:42 PM
I just bought the Speedball Delux silkscreening kit at A.C. Moore for about $70.  They have a cheaper one but it doesn't include the how-to video so I shelled out the extra money.  They put coupons in the newspaper for time to time, I saved 40%.

Wow, that's fantastic!  Love it.  Did you sand it first or did you just paint over it?
