1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Raw edges of brush fringe? on: June 16, 2010 08:55:12 PM
I am making a pillow with brush fringe trim like this: http://www.indianproduct.com/tasselnfringe/newfringes/r266.jpg. I was wondering what to do with the two raw ends when they meet so that it won't unravel or be unsightly. Since it's a pillow, it will be visible from both sides.

Thanks for any tips.

I do not know if this is kosher to post, but I did a tutorial here: http://www.warehousefabricsinc.com/blog/diaper-bag-with-a-divider/

http://www.warehousefabricsinc.com has some fun, inexpensive fabric for bags and such. Check out the "retro" section.

Thanks. I know I could make a paper pattern, but that would take taping a lot of paper together, you know? These are big ol' pieces. I thought they must have something else in mind. Those are good ideas.
5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / (Sort of dumb) question on cutting on: March 04, 2010 08:01:32 PM
I am making the nursery bedding for my baby's room, and for the bigger pieces, the pattern just tells me to cut to dimensions given, rather than offering me pattern pieces.

So if I have to cut a big ol' rectangle (like a bed sheet), how do I best measure that without a pattern piece, and still get it even?

I'm wondering if there's some really obvious thing I'm missing about cutting fabric without actual paper pattern pieces.

Love it! Wish I had the gams for that.

Thanks. This was really helpful. I ordered a darning foot -- I was nervous about the ones on eBay because I couldn't tell if they would connect properly and my specific machine wasn't listed.

I do have a walking foot, so I might try that the first time.

Thank you for the advice on batting. I do have a walking foot and lots of other presser feet, just not one for darning. I guess I should just go ahead and buy it.

Hello. I'm a sewer, but I'm going to start my first quilt. I'm just checking out books at the library and going for it. I'm starting with a baby quilt so I won't invest too much the first time.

I'm just wondering about the quilting angle -- must I have a darning foot to do it? I don't have one and because I have a Kenmore, I have to order every accessory I need. And it seems to be getting harder and harder to find presser feet for my 5 year old machine, even on the Sears site.

Also, do you just drop the feed dogs and start sewing, or do you draw a pattern on with disappearing marker or chalk? Any tips would be great for doing this in the most basic way.

That is so weird but so funny. No, I have never knitted a digestive system with removable gall bladder!
