 Shocked Your daughter looks like a doll! Seriously, like one of those old porcelain dolls. Huge eyes, chubby cheeks, dimples, curls!!! Too cute for words!
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Singer ProFinish CG754 Serger Reviews, please? on: June 11, 2009 10:15:20 AM
I have the Singer Ultralock which looks similiar but apparently isn't. The loopers all all metal and it works great, since the first time i threaded it up right out of the box.
I haven't heard of this model, but couldn't you parents have returned it?
My model was about $200 and works wonderfully. I've had almost a year, no problems what so ever.
Before that I had a Europro which is complete crap. Plastic parts, timing all off, couldn't get it threaded and the timing was off upon opening it. Luckily it was on clearance so it wasn't much of a loss, but also couldn't return the darn thing.
I'm sorry you also had a crappy first serger experience. If you can't take it back, my suggestion would be list it on ebay or craigslist with an honest description and honestly stating you cant figure it out. perhaps a more experienced sewer could figure it out and fix it and be grateful for the discount. take whatever you can get for it then save for a better one. Like I said mine was only around $200. There are somewhat affordable yet reliable ones. Just do your homework. Good luck
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: Crafty But Stupid: YOUR CRAFT RELATED INJURIES HERE! on: June 05, 2009 10:55:25 AM
 Shocked omg some of these are gruesome!

i've had the typical glue gun burns, super glued skin, poked with pins, needles, seam rippers, etc but nothing major. i tend to get burned all the time, so haven't really touched a glue gun in months. i mean i get burnt allllllllllllll the time, while cooking,etc....it's bad Roll Eyes Most of my injuries are either burns, small pricks or sore neck/backs from hunching over the computer or sewing machine for hours. Or sitting on the floor cutting fabric. I have horrible posture. Cheesy
I hope I'm not jinxing myself by saying this, but I have been playing with sewing machines since I was 4 and have yet to run a needle through my fingers.  Grin Hopefully, that will never happen. I now use a serger so that is really scary! that blade is dangerous. Undecided

BE CAREFUL!!! I want to continue seeing all your great stuff you create. Don't hurt yourselves people!

I've re-did a few oversized t-shirts like this. It's a cute fit and so comfy. Great for hiding a bloated tummy/muffin top too(my main reason for making a few tops like this hehe)! Wink as a Dress it looks gorgeous. It'd be very cute with dark wash jeans or tights also, for a more dressy/casual look. Smiley

OMG Shocked that is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too cute! I saw it on the main page under new projects and just HAD to click on it, I immediately knew who it was!! lol I have had that movie on the brain lately too. Not craftwise, just thought of it yesterday.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: puffy top & puma recon on: May 22, 2009 08:19:41 AM
I love the first one! I've been making lots of tops in this style lately(to hide my muffin top hehe), but mostly with a neckline similiar to your second recon. I love the deep neckline on yours though! The little gathers are a great way to achieve that nice neck band on such a loose flowy top. Great idea!

I love the second one! It is so cute and sexy. On the 1st one, IMHO, you should make it more fitted, or wear it with a wide belt. It seems too old for you. You're so cute and have a great figure, work it! Wink
