1  Re: Machine Needle Organizer in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by myrLegacy on: December 31, 2009 12:52:04 PM
I just bought one of these:

I didn't pay full price for it; it was 75% off.

I used to keep my machine needles in a pencil case, but whenever there was a sale on them, I could never remember what needles I needed to buy.  This case folds in thirds and the first two thirds have clear sleeves where the plastic needle cases fit exactly in.  The bottom third has holes for needles that have been used, and it's labeled so you know exactly what needle is in each hole.

2  A Dress, a Jacket, and a Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by myrLegacy on: August 23, 2009 10:11:25 PM
Just a couple of things I made in draping class.

The first is a princess-seamed dress with a peplum.  The skirt pegs in just a little.  I got the floral fabric from school for free and who can resist free fabric?  I was feeling vintage inspired.  Sorry for my sloppy appearance... It'd been a really, sleepless long month.

This is a jacket/coat.  It's almost like a sponged wool that I had interfaced.  I don't have a picture of the lining, but it's a gorgeous poly satin with giant purple roses.  There's tiny pockets in the princess seam.  The back has a center inverted pleat, princess seams with
piping.  The lining hangs straight while the wool balloons to create that shape, and it holds itself up instead of hugging the hips to create the shape.  It looks real good on my tall, skinny friend with hanger-like shoulders, but makes me looks like a potato with limbs.  The skirt is just a simple straight skirt, required in order to make a complete outfit.

4  Acrylic Painting of some Russian Ballet Dancer in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by myrLegacy on: July 22, 2007 09:10:31 PM
I'm taking an art class through a jc this summer, and I made this acrylic painting of some Russian ballet dancer.  She gave us a pile of pictures and told us to pick one.  I would NOT recomend this teacher, by the way, because she's very rude and condescending.  Most of all the students in my class are very stressed out by her.  Of course, she has her favorites.  I took 3 years of art classes in high school and after finishing college, I thought I'd get back into it.

5  3850 - Built by Wendy, Altered by Me in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by myrLegacy on: June 10, 2007 08:30:28 PM
This started out as Simplicity 3850, Built by Wendy. I didn't like the elastic with the gathers at the neck so I decided I wanted to make it pleated. So I made my mock up and discovered that the size for someone of my bust does not work well. It was tent like everywhere and fit over my bust real funny. And since I have fat arms, that was particularily uncomfortable. So I ended up slashing and spreading the sleeves, draping and pinning pleats all around the neck, and tracing a RTW shirt's torso for the fit. I took the bottom of the sleeve in with an inverted pleat. And I made self-fabric bias binding for the neck and the sleeve hems. The shirt hem is turned up with slits/vents on the side seams. I wanted to make it out of a silk crepe I've had lying around, but I was so scared of screwing up the fabric, I bought some cotton from Jo Ann's clearance section.

7  Re: Let's see your sewing machine!! in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by myrLegacy on: July 29, 2006 07:52:15 PM
This is my dad's Singer.  We got it at some garage sale, complete with cabinet.  I'm not sure how old it is.

And this is my Janome 423S.  I bought it for $150 about 2 yrs ago.  I like it, but the only problem is that when I put a foot on there that didn't come with my machine (ie, a walking foot) the needle is off center.  But it sews pretty good -- my sister even sewed a capri sun purse on it.

my sister's been bugging me for a hat for the last couple of months.  restless and sick of my current long project, i decided to finally make one for her.  it was nice to have an FO in a couple of quick, painless hours.

9  free disco = vegan squirrel in Knitting: Completed Projects by myrLegacy on: December 16, 2005 10:27:05 PM
i got my free bernat disco yarn FINALLY.  unfortunately, i'm not big on fun yarn, so it took me a while to figure out what to make out of it.  another craftster made the vegan fox, and i thought that would be a good idea, so i made one too, but i stretched it out which meant that it was skinnier.  i didn't feel like sewing a face on, stuffing it or putting back paws on it.  and i altered the face.  i don't care too much for it, but i'm glad i got to use the yarn.

10  baby cardi in Crochet: Completed Projects by myrLegacy on: December 14, 2005 05:23:23 PM
a coworker of mine is pregnant and i wanted to make her baby some booties. unfortunately, the booties i picked out turned out more complicated than i thought they would so i ended up making her a little cardi.  i think that the colors are very unisex, but i do know that the baby's going to be a girl.  thanks for looking.

ps. it was displayed on some weird vase i made in ceramics class years ago which now house knitting needles.  and i stuck a knitting needle through the arms so that they'd hang straight.  now it reminds me kind of like a scarecrow.
