21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: quilting cotton on: October 08, 2013 08:47:24 PM
I've made lots of clothes from quilting cotton, but the ones that came out best were the ones that were bias cut.  Being on the bias gives the fabric more drape, and a little bit of give.

Thank you!

Guys can be difficult.  Nerdy guys are easier though.  Doctor Who fan? Slap a Dalek on something small, like a key chain, and you're good.  Coffee mugs, cups, pins made with shrinky dinks, can all work  the same way.

Non nerdy guys though, they're really tough.  What do they like?  My father-in-law is really into wine, so I made wine glass markers out of pre formed hoop earring wire and plastic beads.  He still uses them years later.  It was also super inexpensive, I had some assorted beads already, so I only had to buy the wire!

Edited: I've come up with a couple ideas, though not completely done.

SIL: She's the easy one.  She loves retro stuff and pink.  In the past I've made her a sleep mask and an apron.  If I can't think of anything else, I can give her stationary.

BIL(SIL's husband):  I don't think I know him well enough to craft something he'd like, so I'm buying him a movie.

Grandmother-in-law:  Wine markers.  I still have the wire for these from the last set I made someone years ago.  I just need to find my beads and make some sort of backing to put them on.

My annoying FIL is my husband's problem!  Tongue

Thank you!  I do have a lot of posters, I've mostly run out of wall space for them!

I wound up skipping the pocket, I didn't have enough fabric for it to line up with the pattern.  I added the trim after the seam and zipper were done and just folded one end over the other.  Here it is finished!

What do you dislike about the neckline?  To high, too low, to plain, etc.?

From altering other patterns recently I've figured that the problem I have is that there's too much curve in armholes and sleeves of most patterns.  They do that to eliminate bulk, but I need that extra fabric!  Straightening it out seems to work.  Thank you for reminding me about this, I'll have to try again when I get a chance!

Love it!  You did an amazing job!

Thank you!  I haven't gotten a chance to wear it yet, I'm waiting for it to cool off a little bit because I think it will look better with tights than short socks.
