1  Help! I bought a table, and don't know how to mount my machine! in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by broadwaybabe_4 on: June 29, 2008 07:47:34 PM
Hello all!

I found an old sewing machine table at goodwill. No machine attached, just the table. I have a Singer Simple, and have no clue how to mount my machine. The device appears just to sink down, but I'm not really sure. It has a large spring, and was made by Sears, quite some time ago.

Here are the pictures of the table and device:

3  Looking for patterns for cute jackets in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by broadwaybabe_4 on: November 18, 2007 10:23:13 PM
Okay, so I have a few questions.

1. Next year for Halloween, I want to go as a Bond girl. However, I am going to be my own Bond girl. So I want to do a black vinyl/pvc jacket and pant combo. I was wondering if anyone knew of a jacket pattern similar to these pictures:

(Remember, I am only looking for a jacket, so ignore the rest of the slutty costumes.)

Also, I am looking to make a jacket like Nicole, the winner of America's Next Top Model, a few cycles ago. It is a military-inspired crop jacket along the lines of something like this:

Does anyone know of good patterns along these lines?

Thanks so much!

4  I'm an art major, here's some stuff! (Image heavy) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by broadwaybabe_4 on: November 15, 2007 08:36:00 PM
I am currently an art major with an emphasis in graphic design. Since I am still only a sophomore, I have not really had any graphics courses... Cry I am still working on foundations for my major. However, here is some work from my freshman year, and some from this year. I will add more when I take pictures. Also, maybe I'll throw in some stuff from high school when I go home for TURKEY DAY! YEY!

This is a portrait of my friend Alyssa. Her left eye is messed up, but oh well.


Naked man... I hate these days.

Naked woman... not much better.

Portrait of my sister. Every mark is a letter "K" because her name is Katie. This took forever... her teeth aren't finished here.

Valentine's Day present for my boy. He looks okay in this picture, but I screwed myself up.

The assignment was to empty an entire Bic pen. I drew my violin.

5  Re:Muddy Dog Paw Jeans to Cool Dyed Jeans in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by broadwaybabe_4 on: April 03, 2004 06:38:43 PM
I've been poking around on this site for a little while and all I can say is wow.  There are some terrific ideas here.  So all of this creativity has taken me back to my teenage days.  I grew up in the costume shop of a University where my mother was the theatrical costumer, so I've been sewing, dying, and reconstructing fabrics for a while.  (My dad was the scenic designer, but that's an entirely different set of projects.)

One of my favorite projects in my teenage years used to be dying blue jeans.  A little eighties, I know, but I've done it again.  I took an older pair of boot cut jeans with muddy dog paw prints on the thighs and dyed them RIT Scarlet. (I used two packets in one "small" washer load, following the directions on the inside of the packet).  

They turned out well.  Y'all should try it too.  Its a great way to reclaim your favorite jeans that you spilled lunch on or have dog paw prints on, etc.

I hope that the pictures below work.  Im new at all of this.

kinda going back to the dye thing. only, reversed. i have this great pair of jeans i got from goodwill. they are perfect. the only problem is that they are really blue. dark blue. i wear them all the time, but i think i need a change how do i bleach them? i have washed them several times before so, they definatley are not new, but neither are they gonna fall apart. i would like to go for the faded comfy jean look. should i just throw them in with my next white load? or will the blue kill my whites? any suggestions?
