1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / How do I use the Janome One Step Buttonhole? on: June 01, 2006 01:30:41 PM
I have the Janome Sewist 525S sewing machine and I can't find the directions anywhere.  I need to make buttonholes for my sewing class but have no clue how to use the one step buttonhole, or how to make a buttonhole at all on this machine.  If anyone can help I'd REALLY appreciate it.  My proeject's due tomorrow!!
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Decoupaging a Dresser with Bazooka? on: August 01, 2005 03:15:16 PM
I bought a box of Bazooka gum at a local wholesale store and I wanted to decoupage the comics on my dresser.  Originally, I wanted to cover the whole thing with silver Wrigley wrappers but that took FOREVER.  So I'd rather decoupage, plus I think it would be a lot cooler looking. 

So my problem is, I have no idea where to even start with decoupaging.  I keep hearing things about Mod Podge.. What is it? I've seen it at AC Moore but have never really looked at it. Do you use it just to adhese the pictures on or do you put it on the top to seal it as well? And, would the plastic-like pictures not decoupage easily?
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How to: Noodle Jacket? on: July 06, 2005 07:16:44 AM
How would I go about making a jacket like this?



Yes, I know it's a cartoon and it doesn't give much to work with but I just love Noodle and her jacket and I'd love to have one of my own.  I was thinking about buying a pattern for an asian jacket with that vertical collar and improvising.  However, it's not that easy to improvise with a pattern.  But maybe it is? I'm too scared to try until I'm finished lol.

Anyone know where I can get closures like that? I was thinking about maybe attaching the kind you see on metal tins. 
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Serger Stitch Help on: June 15, 2005 09:36:31 PM
Hello there.

I just purchased an Elna Serger off of Ebay about a week ago and I've had fun using the basic 4 and 3 thread stitches.  However, I'm not sure how to do other ones and if anyone has any help for me I'd definitely appreciate it. 

--How do you serger hems the way that t-shirts have? (zigzag on the inside, 2 straight on the outside)  Is it just two needles, and the lower looper?

--How do you do that chain stitch, the skinny one shown here: http://www.livejournal.com/community/unejupe/282309.html#cutid1

Please help! I'm lost!
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / How do I make a bag out of a stuffed animal? on: July 11, 2004 04:48:12 PM
I have this baby fozzie bear doll that i bought today at Target and I want to make it into a bag.  I want it to be like one of those stuffed animal backpacks with the little pocket in the back.  However, I'm too nervous to even think about cutting him open unless I'm positive I know what I'm doing.

Here's a picture of him if it helps.  I got it from the KBToys website, it's a lot cuter in person.
