11  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Wholesale WEBSITE For Tees on: April 10, 2009 02:59:41 PM
Hello all,
I am looking for a website that sells blank t-shirts. It doesn't have to be wholesale but I don't want to pay more than $10 each. Anyways my problem is that I need cotton/poly tees and I want them to be fitted (basically i'm saying tight lol like any normal brand name tee, I'm in my late teens and am very small). Another factor to my problem is that I live in Canada (I will buy from the states but with exchange and shipping sometimes its not worth it). Haha so any help is appreciated cuz I'm kinda run into a dead end especially with the fitted thing... All brand name tees fit fine yet when you buy blank (ie: Hanes, Fruit of the Loom, etc) they are all so baggy (mainly talking midsection/belly). Thanks in advance to everyone!!
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Hmm? Baffled by Yarn Skein on: September 25, 2008 09:24:13 AM
It says both are 100% wool. Brand 1 is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted wool and Brand 2 is Manos Wool. I have the Lornas Laces kind and its pretty tightly woven, like it looks pretty much like normal wool but I'm not really an expert on this kind of stuff. But the density does make sense so
maybe i'll try some of it anyway .. thanks for the help!

Stitch holders (boughten kind) work like huge safety pins. Just slide on your stitches and clip it closed making sure you put all the stitches on the right way (no twisting). The stitches should look exactly like they did on your needled only now they are on the safety pin and you won't lose them while you continue knitting.
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Hmm? Baffled by Yarn Skein on: September 24, 2008 09:29:18 PM
Hi, okay so usually I'm not very ditzy but this has me baffled. I was looking at buying wool for a new project and was comparing brands/price etc and came across something that just doesn't quite add up.. Ok enough talking here's the breakdown.

Brand 1 Wool Skein
Weight: 100 grams
Suggested Gauge: 4.5 stitches per inch
Yardage: 225

Brand 2 Wool Skein
Weight: 100 grams
Suggested Gauge: 4.5 stitches per inch
Yardage: 135

So how come the yardage of Brand 1 is twice that of Brand 2? The skeins are the same weight
and according to the gauge each strand must be the same diameter.. so am I going crazy? Or is there some little thing that you expert knitters know that I am oblivious too?

 What I'd do.. not saying you have to.. just ideas.. Paint the fireplace wall and the window wall one color something like a lighter/brighter (a more muted red maybe) and paint the remainding walls neutral. If you want mocha (which is a nice color) make sure its not too dark because the room is already very dark.
Get some sort of horizontal blinds and a sheer fabric to use as long curtains. That way when you want light in, pull the blinds up and leave the sheer fabric over the windows (so people cant peek but lets light through) Entertainment centres are quite expensive but it would make the biggest difference that way you could get rid of the other bookcases and misc cd/dvds on the floor. Buy/make a couple simple wall shelves to put on either side of the fireplace and put all the other lil trinkets you/your parents might want on them. In the corner near the kitchen put a corner desk, it will give you a lot more room.

thats about all i can think of for random ideas, hope i helped a bit
have fun decorating!

17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Unsure bout lining skirt... will it work? on: August 05, 2007 12:37:31 PM

 First I should mention that I don't usually make/alter clothes it seems just way too advanced for my sewing skills but i'm going to try this...

 I have an adorable embroidered skirt but the material is very VERY see-through so I have some lining that I want to put under it. The skirt is gathered at the top with an elastic band and then just flares out (small pleats at the top)

I'm unsure of how to attach the lining to the top of the skirt since its finished with an elastic (the hidden kind, not just on the inside of the skirt)

Can I just sew it to the seam right below the elastic or will it be weird since the skirt is pleated and my material wouldn't be...

Any ideas right now would be super helpful, thanks
18  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: Mild Puckering Problem Help? on: August 04, 2007 09:05:16 PM

 Thank you, I never even though about waiting to cut out my pattern until I was done embroidering I'll definately try that next time. I've turned it into a lil purse and will post pics of it as soon as i find out how to post pics lol
19  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Mild Puckering Problem Help? on: August 04, 2007 07:48:05 AM

 So I've recently just started embroidering and it's all going well (except wow does it take a lot longer than I expected!) but lately I've been having problems with puckering on some of my tiny designs. I am just using cotton material with disolving backing and just use satin stitch and stem stitch. I can't use a hoop because the piece of material I'm embroidering on is way too small for any hoop i've seen. Anyway I do hold it tight in my hands when I embroider and it usually looks good until I start filling in the designs with the satin stitch then they get kinda wanky.

Is it because I am not using a hoop? and is there anything I can do to fix it now that it's done?

So far i've not found anything on the thread as to how to fix puckering minus using a hoop/using interfacing.

Anyways thanks so much for reading this

 I would use cordura material but make sure when you are sewing it you have heavy duty needles (like a denim needle, etc). You will also probably want to use some kind of nylon webbing for the handle b/c the handle is going to take the biggest beating when youre carrying heavy books.

 As for sewing, make sure you leave a large seam allowance and do two seams on the bottom (not over top of each other but just beside each other)

 That's about all I can think of.. hope it was some help.
