1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Pattern Help on: October 14, 2008 03:00:54 AM
I am looking for a pattern for a dress that is either in a Halter top style or a pattern that can be easily modified for a Rockabilly style dress. I looked through all my usual sources but I didn't see anything and was hoping someone might have a better Idea than the one I had (which would involve a lot of muslin, a lot of alcohol and alot of time - which I don't have) to try and bang out my own. I am wanting to make this for my Husband's command christmas party and I really appreciate any help or suggestions anyone has.
2  ASIA / Japan / Help with type identification on: November 20, 2007 12:32:06 AM
I recently (this past weekend) was taught a form of Japanese embroidery by someone who had taken the class in hachinohe. I plan on going to the craft consignment shop to get all the patterns from her (or whoever is there) but I am currently trying to discover what type it is (since I have learned that there is way more than one) so that I can learn a little more history behind it and also so I can continue years from now when I am no longer in Japan. Photo of the pattern I completed below.

I learned how to do this type of Japanese embroidery this past weekend from someone who had taken a class and I am totally addicted but apparently there are alot of types of Japanese embroidery. Does anyone know what type this is so I can look up information about it?

4  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Stained Glass Picture Frame on: September 24, 2007 05:03:26 PM
OK so I am trying to make a picture frame for some family members. This is not going to be a rectangular or square shape but a freestanding design. It is going in a plate display holder the ones that fold like a book. I only want the area where the 8x10 photo will be to have a backing.

1) what do I need to be able to put the backing and photo on and
2) how exactly would I go about getting said item on the back of the design.

I posted this in Japan as well since I am living over here and needed some help locating things here but I figured you guys would be helpful as well.

The design is a very large Torii gate. I had to enlarge the image size to 20x24 in order to get the pattern to 16x14 including a 3 inch blank edge. The 8x10 photo will be between the 2 legs of the Torii gate.

Thank you in advance for you help!
5  ASIA / Japan / Stained Glass Crafters in Japan (Misawa if you live near there) on: September 24, 2007 04:38:04 PM
Hello! I am in misawa and have learned how to do Stained Glass. As such my Husband now wants me to make a picture frame out of stained glass but I do not know how to keep the picture in the area where the clear glass will be. Everyone I have talked to has said I need some tin something (i swear I'd know it if I saw it) but no one seems to be able to tell me how I would go about applying it to my particular project. it is not going to be square/rectangle in shape but an actual shape...actually it is going to be a very large Torii Gate with the picture between the 2 legs. We won't be putting a hanger on it b/c we are going to be putting it on one of those "plate" displays and we only want where the picture is (which is an 8x10 photo) to have a cardboard backing so that it can be set up in front of a window and allow light to go thru the Torii Gate. Any help would be greatly appreciated and if you happen to live in Misawa and have access to Misawa Air Base I will be in the Arts and Crafts center.

On a side note would any of you know where in misawa or Hachinohe I can go to have a copy made that would be 16x14 inches in size? I would rather get a single sheet for my pattern than have to do the tape and laminate that I am currently planning on doing.

Wonton Wrapers? Is this something that I can get on base or would I need to go to a universe or jusco?
