1  Opinions? Tinkerbell Outfit for My Daughter in Costumes: Completed Projects by DaisyAlly on: July 09, 2009 11:48:47 AM
Okay so to make a short story long  Roll Eyes we are going to the Peter Pan Treasure Hunt in Kensington Gardens in London this weekend and I thought it would be cute for my little girl to dress up. So I made this outfit but Im not sure about it. I want your guys' opinions, do you think its boring? I wanted it to be true to the character, but now Im afraid its kinda plain. Her hair will be done up in a bun with a side part and she'll be wearing black ballet flats, (because she wont let me paint them green! lol) Oh and Im going to put jingle bells on her somewhere so she makes the Tinkerbell sound too. What do you think?

2  Can I make a stop at the top of a zipper? in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by DaisyAlly on: April 17, 2008 02:02:23 PM
Ugh, apparently I'm running low on caffeine and just screwed up my zipper. It started out as a a zip for "Dress Plackets", much like this one-

See that little metal stopper at the top there? Yeah I cut it off. -Not really sure what the hell I thought was going to happen but let me reiterate the lack of caffeine.  Undecided So now I have it all sewed into the dress and naturally it is the prettiest zipper Ive ever done  Roll Eyes so I really dont want to take it out! Does anyone know if I can fashion a stop somehow? Thanks in advance for any help. Now Im off to make some coffee...

3  First Project Post! New Purse (3 Pics) in Crochet: Completed Projects by DaisyAlly on: February 26, 2008 08:42:20 PM
I love the colors but Im not crazy about the actual purse because it stretches too much when loaded up with junk.  Sad  Im not sure if its the stitch I used or if its because I didnt know you are supposed to go through both the front and back loops. Oops.  Cheesy Oh well, here it is.

Laying Flat

On, but empty

On, with a few things in it

What do you guys think?

4  Help with Button Holes? in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by DaisyAlly on: February 16, 2008 01:16:55 PM
Okay Im sure this has been asked before but Ive searched and couldnt find anything so if Im just missing it, please let me know! I cant be the only one who doesnt know how to do button holes.  Sad Maybe someone knows of a good website that can show me? I cant find anything useful. And naturally, I seem to have lost the manual to my sewing machine, so can any of you oh-so-talented people tell me if any of these are a button foot? Or what the heck that long metal thing is? (Yes its that bad, I have NO idea what Im doing!) And the fabric in the picture is what I need to put the button holes in, just for reference. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you guys!

5  How do I keep this fabric from unraveling when I cut it?? in Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions by DaisyAlly on: November 06, 2007 02:40:32 PM
I fell in love with this coat pattern when I saw it and though I realized it was more than a little bit advanced for my skills, I at least thought I would be able to start if before I had to beg you guys for help!! But as it stands now, I havent even cut the pieces out. So I'm doing great so far.  Embarrassed  Anyway my question is this; how in the hell do I cut this fabric without having it all unravel on me? I lost about two inches off of the unfinished edges when I washed it and now im terrified to cut it. Any ideas? im totally lost here and my 4 year old daughter has declared that I should buy the coat because it takes too long to make it!  Angry Okay this is they first time I've tried to post a pic, so I hope it works.
