1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / OMG SEWING MACHINE on: May 21, 2008 08:54:22 PM
Ok, for those of you who are taking the time out of your day to look at my post...
Thank you.

Now that Im done sucking up I need to know what the best sewing machine is when it
comes to sewing garments such as shirts, making sweaters, and sewing denim (possibly).
I used to use my grandma's desk sewing machine which worked really well until my dad
tried to zig-zag with a zipper foot.
So if you could let me know it would be greatly appreciated.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Sweater sleeves are a pain in my butt on: November 25, 2007 07:43:15 PM
How do you keep the sleeves
from bunching up under the
armpits? I have the hardest time with this part.
Any suggestions would be wonderful!

Thanks  Grin

So im looking to make a sweater.  What would be the best material to use for the sweater itself and the lining?

I know i need knit rib for the cuffs and all that good stuff but the sweater and lining are really stumping me!

I need a good tutorial that is really easy to understand
and like how to line the hood so it doesnt look horrible.

I would really appreciate it!

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Beatles Back pack now with tute. on: July 10, 2007 01:15:30 AM
I made this last night out of two t-shirts and some shoe laces.  It was really easy to do



-2 t-shirts
-2 shoelaces or ribbons 48"+

Lay out the two shirts and cut an 18 in x 13 in square through both layers of the shirt.  Now you have 4 squares.  

Decide what t-shirt squares you want on the outside and what ones you want for your lining.

Put the outside squares on the inside facing each other and sew up three sides leaving the top open.

Then while your backpack is still inside out you can fold down the opening about an inch and sew and then string a shoelace/ribbon through

or you can hem the top edge and cut holes through the top to weave the shoelaces/ribbons through.  Make sure you start out on one side with the first shoelace and the opposite side with the second to make your straps.

now your backpack should be facing the right way

once you have that done cut 2 holes at the bottom or use gromets at opposite corners.  once you have that done poke the shoelace/ribbon through and tie them so they dont come out

(i sewed my shoelaces to the back pack after i tied them so they wouldn't come out)

I hoped this helped.  Im sorry there are no pictures and sorry if im not thorough enough.  Feel free to ask questions
