I know black dye is supposed to last forever basically, but for some odd reason dye fades amazingly fast for me. All colors just disappear in a month or so no matter what I try to do. Does anyone have any tips?
Okay so I've been a vegetarian my entire life, I've never even tasted meat. I dont even know how you go about cooking any particular meat product, unless it comes in a box with instructions involving a microwave. Well, my fiance is a massive carnivore, like I cant even persuade him to eat salad. Does anyone know any simple recipes or non offensive ones to make (as in I'm a bit squeemish around dead things) that I could start out with so I can learn how to make him food that he would enjoy. Does anyone have the same problem as me?
Okay, so I've been buying tulle for ages, many colors and many many yards (like 15 or 20 total probably) only I cant find a pattern for a petticoat. I know that there are some here on craftster, but I cant find any. I've searched and searched (and searched and searched and searched) so if anyone can give me a link that would be so unbelievably fantastic
How do you put the fabric over them without it puckering or looking like crap? Is there any way to make a hat form? I've seen ones out of cardboard and such but that just doesnt seem like it'd be the best quality. I really want to make top hats, I just need a little help getting started.
I really desperatly want to make a gothic trench coat (well more accuratly a duster, so there's no belt). I cant find any patterns for a coat even similar to the one I want, and I'm not a skilled enough sewer to make my own. Does anyone know of any patterns?
I have roughly 10 yards of bright red tulle I bought at a thrift store for $7 and I would really like to transform it into a petticoat (like the ones at hottopic, not necessarily historically accurate) and in my sewing class we have an independant project coming up where we choose a pattern and sew it, so does anyone know of a pattern for a petticoat? Like an actual pattern, not a tutorial. For some odd reason Hewitt wont let me make anything with instructions someone posts on here.
I love unique purses, like a lot, I'm making one out of a medical book, another out of an old radio, neck ties, candy wrappers, but I'm not sure how exactly to use the bottles as the metal is fairly thick. I dont know what sort of tool to cut it with or anything. I just want it to lay flat basically, I'm not too sure what to do after that but I think I can manage.
Okay so I'm going to 2 days of Sakura Con (an anime convention in Seattle, Washington) Saturday and Sunday. For one day I'm going as Butterfly from Tarot Cafe, and I have that all planned out. But there's still one day I have no planning for. I really want something lolita-ish, but I'm not sure what to do. And my sewing skills are fairly mediocre, but I do have 40 days. Just if anyone has ideas, I'm at a loss...
