801  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Where to get vintage pin up girls to use on items that you plan sell? on: August 21, 2007 03:57:07 PM
I want to find some vintage pin-up girls that are already on fabric or that I can print on fabric to make bags and other things to sell.  I can't find any images that you are allowed to use for commercial purposes.  Everything says for personal use and I don't want to get into trouble with copyright laws.  I'd be willing to pay for the rights (not a fortune, but I'd pay something).  Anybody know where I can find anything like this?

ETA:  I'd like the girls to be at least 6" tall.  Sometimes bigger.  I did find some pin-up fabric but the girls are very small.

803  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / I want to make a usable/washable/ photo quilt on: August 21, 2007 03:19:43 PM
Hello!  I have never made a quilt before but I am determined to do one now.  My brother in law was killed in a car accident in June and his wife is pregnant.  I want to use some of his clothes to make a quilt for the baby.  I have the basic idea.  I just plan on doing a very basic block quilt.  And my grandma can help me with the quilting part.  What I need to know is how to make this quilt hold up through the years.  I want the baby to be able to use it daily if he wants to.  So it has to wash well.  Is there a way to print photos that holds up to washing.  Granted it will only hold up as well as regular fabric would in the wash, but how can I make sure the photos don't crack or fade faster than the rest of the quilt?  Also, I'd like to use some T-shirts and jeans and whatever kind of fabric it is that you print on.  Will all of those different types of fabric piece together ok?  I saw SweetMemoriesQui's blog telling how to print pics and what to use.  I just need to know if that holds up through washing and if I can sew that kind of fabric together with the other fabrics I plan to use.  Any other advice for a clueless quilter is appreciated too.  Thanks so much!

805  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: What is interfacing? on: August 21, 2007 02:47:01 PM
Thanks for the info.  Very informative.  My lack of interfacing explains why my purses are all "floppy".  Cheesy
806  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / What is interfacing? on: August 21, 2007 11:54:43 AM
I've made a lot of bags and purses in my lifetime but never really knew what I was doing.  Cheesy Most of them turned out good enough to use them myself but none of them were worthy of selling, or of giving for gifts.  I have the basic idea of bag making.  I even kind of know how to do linings and zippers.  I just need to clean it up a bit.  Anyway, I see interfacing in a lot of tutorials here.  Can you tell me what interfacing is?  What is it's purpose.  Is it necessary for bags/purses with a lining?  Thanks.  I'm clueless!  Obviously right! LOL

808  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Beads made from firing clay on: August 20, 2007 02:06:11 PM
I have about a million questions about making beads from firing clay.  I know nothing about clay or kilns or any of that.  However, I just bought a kiln and 700 ceramic molds.  I don't even know if this kiln will work for beads but it was a good deal.  Anyway, before I post a million questions, is there anyone here who thinks they could help me out?  If so, I'll check out my kiln to see what kind it is and all that.  Also, do the old ceramics sell anymore?  I think the molds I have are all from the 70's and 80's.  I'm not interested in the ceramics really.  I just took the molds because they came with the kiln.  It was my cousin selling them and he said I had to take it all.   Cheesy  Anyway, if I thought I could sell the finished ceramic products, I'd give it a whirl.  Otherwise I think I'll just sell the molds. 
Thanks for any input!
809  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Baby blocks from flannel on: August 20, 2007 07:36:54 AM
I think I'm going to try making some of these cute name blocks that I see you all making.  I'm going to use flannel because I found some that matches the baby's room (for a friend's baby).  Anyway, I was thinking of just cutting the pieces with pinking shears (is that what they're called?  They cut a zigzag).  Then I'd leave the zig zag edges out if that makes sense.  My question is, will they fray?  I don't sew a lot so I've not used flannel enough to know.  I just thought it would be a nice sensory thing for the baby to have those zig zags.  But I could just as easily add the ribbons if the flannel would fray too easily.  Thanks for any input!

Thanks.  I don't think I could just make a pic on my own that looks that great!  I think I could probably figure out how to do everything but the binding but you've already explained that.  Not sure why I asked for a tut really.  Must've been one of those days.  Sorry.  Undecided
