31  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Hey peeps...ALL walmarts that still cary fabric...Read on on: July 30, 2010 09:28:05 PM
Yeah, I bought a bolt last night!  My store's selection was pretty pathetic, mostly cheap pastel knit but I found a  lightweight cotton plaid shirting fabric.  It was pre-washed last night and waiting to be made into summery pj pants.

Both companies are regurgitating old images and packaging it as "original".  We "older" stitchers appreciate not being locked into geese-with-bonnets pattern hell but really and truly, what both companies did was "dumb down" embroidery with easy outline stitches and with that, I now have more confidence to trace and freehand my own designs.  Frankly, I am a little over the mass nonconformity marketing of skulls, tattoos, pin-up girls, etc.  It's Embroidery Top 40.
33  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: does it REALLY matter if you don't prewash? on: July 30, 2010 08:28:56 PM
As a someone once advised me, pre-wash and dry in a manner MORE harsh than you will later use.  That way, there are no surprises later.  
Last night I washed 5 yards of shirting cotton in hot and dried the crap outta it.  Normally, I don't subject cotton to those levels of heat.
If the fabric is super stinky with dye odors, I add a small amount of fragrant shampoo to the laundry water.
Oh wait, one more tip, if I suspect any chance of color running, I toss a Carbona dye grabber cloth in the wash.  It is a laundry miracle.  Read my (unsolicited/non-compensated) review of it at below link.

Thanks Rai2Fai2!
I really considered not sewing it . . . but wasn't totally sure the fabric wouldn't lift later. 
After ironing and before sewing: it almost looked silk screened.

Easy applique with Wonder Under iron-on stuff and then machine sewn.

37  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: empty gift cards?? on: July 13, 2010 08:05:04 PM
I use them for craft projects like pin backs, etc. How about cutting them into shapes, punching a hole and stringing like a garland? Oh, wait, decorate with border, punch a hole, add contact info for custom luggage tag.

I know, right!  SkitzoLeezra, I am in major love with your floss stash.  Shocked
Why thank you, Beffielou!  At the risk of inviting envy, take a look at this Craftster link with more floss organization, on page 19 of 28.
