1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / [ Woven Duct Tape Purse ] White, Teal, and Neon Green on: June 24, 2008 02:53:57 PM
This is my second woven duct tape purse and I made it slightly smaller than the first one.  It's 8 in. x 6 in. x 3 in.  The front of the purse is strips of woven white, teal, and neon green duct tape.  The outside of the purse is white and the inside is teal.  There are d-rings attached to the sides.  I plan on buying some chain and making a strap with that, and finding a snap to close the purse with.

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / [ Woven Duct Tape Purse ] Neon Purple & Black on: June 23, 2008 09:30:34 AM
I've made many duct tape purses before, but I had never made a woven one so I decided to try it.  The woven piece is just on the front of the purse and is strips of black and purple duct tape.  The rest of the outside is black, and all of the inside is purple.  I haven't made a strap for it yet, but I plan a taping a D-Ring to either side and buying a chain to use as the strap.  There isn't any closure yet, but I want to use either a snap or some velcro on the inside to close it.

The dimensions of the purse are 11 in. x 8 in. x 3 in.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / what type of yarn do i need for felting? on: August 29, 2005 12:04:34 PM
I've heard alot about felting, but I've never done it.  I wanted to know if I need a certain type of yarn to felt with, or if cotton/acrylic would be fine?
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / finished corset, but it [[doesn't fit]], it's big and "baggy" Help? on: August 07, 2005 07:05:26 PM

I'm a beginning sewer and I just made a corset without boning.  It zips up the front and I used grommet tape for the back.  I was SO happy to finally have finished because I spent HOURS on it, but when I tried it on, I realized that it doesn't fit.  It's big and it puckers in spots.  Is there any way that I can fix this?
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / sewing machine problems HELP ME! hope this is posted in the right place... on: August 06, 2005 10:20:55 PM
Okay, I just got a sewing machine as a gift from my boyfriend almost two weeks ago. I've only used it around five times. I took home ec in junior high so I do know how to sew. Well, today my machine decided that it was going to get stuck. So I unstick it and when I turn over my fabric it has knots and tons of extra thread underneath. I REALLY don't know what's the matter with it. My tension is fine, the bobbin is in the right way, the machine is threaded correctly, I changed the needle, I oiled the bobbin case part...I also used air duster and blew out all of the lint and such. There isn't any thread stuck anywhere...I just cannot figure it out! I had my dad look at it, he can't figure it out. (he used to sew. :-O) I have warrenty for the machine, so I can get it fixed/replaced, but I REALLY REALLY want to sew RIGHT NOW. I'm becoming addicted to it. And if warrenty won't cover it because it is something that I did to the machine, I can't pay to have it repaired. It's a Bernette 55 sewing machine, $400...

PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME! If you don't understand what's wrong, I can take a picture of what it looks like when I sew with it.
