41  dipping my toes back in in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by tiltcreations on: August 07, 2008 10:01:20 AM
I have been going through my old stuff for inspiration b/c I am looking to dip my toes back into art. I always loved it but was always only so-so...and I am OK with being good at what I am only mildly interested in and only mildly good at what I am really interested in.
Anyway...just wanted to throw these out there and share first - I'll compare later   Grin
this hangs in my parents family room...
this just always felt good...

42  No longer an embroidery virgin in Needlework: Completed Projects by tiltcreations on: August 06, 2008 08:39:53 PM
I finally just went for it & tried embroidery (was always intimidated b/c it looks so intricate...which it is)
Went on a family vaca with the in-laws, so I brought along my old sketchbook, floss, needles, a hoop & fabric....
Only downside of my try was that I forgot to bring my "cheatsheet" of stitches - had to go by memory...so most of the stitches are made up.
not pretty...but fun! can't wait to break out more old sketches & chug forward...WITH my cheatsheet this time Grin
the first one...
and the one where I tried different excuses for stitches ...
Like all new moms - I am proud of my babies - no matter what they look like  Wink

44  Zipper woes...any help appreciated in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by tiltcreations on: July 16, 2008 12:28:06 PM
I usually do not have a problem with zippers....but I don't usually do them this close...so, for anyone out there who makes stuff like this...How?
The problem is mostly just at the zipper pull end (open end)...
Putting the zipper on the main was ok - but attaching the lining, well...not so much.
help please! btw...this end was last - I couldn't get it to work sewing continuous around - had to start & stop on either side.
 from the outside...
from the inside...
oh...and the whole thing...

45  Re: How to finish bags?! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by tiltcreations on: July 15, 2008 09:56:13 PM
If you want to avoid the whole topsticch thing & don't mind some handstictching or "backwards seams"...sew lining to bag with bag right side out & lining wrong side out (lining is outermost) while leaving either part of the side (less noticeable) or the bottome of the lining open and turn rightside thru that opening...once everything is in the right place, either handstitch the opening closed or do an edgestictch at the opening...does that make any sense? If I had any pics I'd show them...but I've never taken any as I go...
not sure if you see it...but the bottom was open before the "turn" and sewn as edgestitch to finish...

46  Opinions please in Get Product and Website Opinions by tiltcreations on: July 14, 2008 01:08:22 PM
I am in the beginning stages of turning my hobby into a biz. I've only drafted about 5 different designs (created 4 of them so far, some with multiples) and have sketches for more to try.
I have the name, logo & DBA is being registered.
I started a website b/c friends and family were interested now.
What I am looking for is opinions from people not close to me that are also crafters.
Opinions on products & website (keep in mind still under construction - the store is hidden until I am ready) are very much appreciated.
thank you thank you thank you


Now I can add pics so you don't have to go to the website (although opinions on that are very welcome)...
