sew, i've done a search on this topics and it seems as though lots of people have problems with interfacing. The brand I usually use is pellon and well...it sux...I tend to get bubbles and it takes for ever to get a strong bond...So my question is, is there a brand that doesn't have this problem that can be purchaced over the internet? If so let me know!
Also, I got my hands on the best facric ever once. It had a fusible side to it! I fusible very quickly with a super strong bond. But i've never seen anything like it after that... ;o( Does anyone know where to get this type of material??
I don't understand the "shape shoulders section." At this point there are 30 stitches bound off in the middle and you have 18 stitches from either end on each needle. The directions say to attach a new ball of yarn to the neck edge of the let shoulder and finish the row. Judging from the picture, I added it to the edge that is near the bound off stitches and finished the row. Now everything is on one needle. Did i do this right. It doesn't seem so, but i really don't understand and of the directions in this shoulder shaping section....
I always work on something...get frustrated...post a question...then eventually go back and work on it anyway.... to make a long story short, I think i got it right....i'm still a bit confused on how to sew the neckline up at the end though, so if anyone has any suggestions about how to accomplish that it would be awsome....
I don't have a picture, but I am hoping that someone might still be able to help me out. I thought that I saw this type of quilt in an ethan allen or an anthropologie catalog. The quilt consists of small circles (possible octogons) and they are kind of scrunched up or pleated all around. I thought that it might have been listed as pin wheel, but when I searched for a pin wheel quilt, the style looked different. So anyway, if someone does know what I am talk about, how hard is it to acomplish. I've never quilted before, but I am a fairly experienced seemstress.
I am currently knitting the back of a sweater in a vertical 2x2 rib The gauge appears to be right. However, in order to get the width to be the correct measurement for this section, the piece needs to be stretched a lot. I am supposed to knit until the length is 14". Should I still measure it while "slightly stretched" or is this case any different? The pile of flesh itself does not give any advice on how to measure.
So I am a bit confused...I am just looking over my pile of flesh before I start, and it says to "work even until the piece measures 18 inches" but my needles are only 14 inches (i couldn't find anything longer...not even sure they make them longer)...Will i still be able to do this? How does it work?
So my birthday is comming up and I am thinking of asking for a new sew machine....Mine was purchaced about 50 years ago by my grandmother, and is beginning to die on my. Since I have never been in the market for this before I am not sure of what the good brands are...i am not sure what my price limit is, but my main concerns are wanting to be able to sew layers of thick fabric together with out break a needle and jamming the machine and such, I would also like one with easy to use needle tension and nice top stitching....I am used to a mechanical one, but have been ghoulish at the number of stitches and embridary capibilities of computerized ones so would not be opposed to them...Does anybody have any suggestions?
I am very new to crocheting and picked the blissful top for my first crochet project (I know that i should have probably picked something easier, but I am adventurous...). So now I have two questions:
1.) This one is about all the stitches: Are the things in parenthesis to be repeated into the same stitch or repeated into the next stitch?
2.) For the dc3tog stitch, the last instruction says to draw yarn through 3 loops on hook. However, I always have 4 loops on my hook at this point and if I draw the yarn though 3 loops, i wind up with 2 loops on my hook at the end of the stitch. What am I doing wrong?!?!
Okay...I don't really think my stuff sucks....I eat my products...I did make them after all and beleive that they are good enough to be sold...
My question is why are people not buying them?... I have a website (which thankfully now shows up in search engines) and I have some stuff up on etsy. On etsy people are viewing them, but no one has purchased yet
Do they not appeal to others? Do they look better from afar? Are they too pricey? Not unique enough? Let me know what you guys think.
I recently purchases a small "test" kiln that was marketed for glass, pmc, jewelry, beads, small pottery, etc. I havn't received it in the mail yet, but I am pretty sure there is no bead door (bead window). The kiln opens from the top. How would one go about making lampwork beads with this kiln? Is is possible? Also, while I am here...is a kiln shelf neccessary for glass? To be honost, i am not even sure of it's purpose.
My sewing machine was working perfectly....then I must have pulled on the fabric because the needle broke. So, I changed the needle. To a more correct one, actually. i changed it to a needle for knits (I am sewing knit fabric) when before I beleive it was for heavy weight woven. So anyway, at this point the needle thread ran in a straight line. So I loosened the pressure. Now, there are stiches on both sides, but there are skipped stiches on both sides. (And the needle tension appears to be loose now)
agh...i'm frustrated and would apprecaite any advice that anyone has to offer....
