1  Alternative to ikea's deka system in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by No_Aloha on: July 15, 2007 09:20:47 AM
This is what I'm talking about

I live in an ikea-less area but really want to showcase some "art" I ripped out of these 1960's-1970's middle school English textbooks I got from my boss.  I know someone has to have rigged this up themselves.  I guess I could just attach wire to nails in the wall, but there might be a better way...

2  vintage pattern--no instructions--Yoke/inset issues! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by No_Aloha on: May 31, 2007 03:16:59 PM
Okay, so I bought a 1970's dress pattern that has a split yoke/bib/inset (whatever you want to call it) attached to a gathered section of the dress and collar and puffed, cuffed sleeves.  I'm fine on sewing everything except the yoke.     It's very similar to this one only it has a longer inset (below bust) and the dress is more fitted.

if anyone has sewn one of these inset dealies before, I'd appreciate advice on what to do and put where first, second, third, etc...  As I said, that's the only part that's making my brain hurt a little. Grin

3  Re: stretch ribbed trim for a hoodie? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by No_Aloha on: January 08, 2006 01:13:41 PM
If you can't find matching ribbing, you can make cuffs and a band out of the sweatshirt fabric--figure out the width you want, double it, and add 1 1/4 inches for two 5/8" seam allowances.  Makes sure that you cut the cuff/ribbing shorter than the opening and stretch it as you pin it and are sewing it on. 

This shirt here (it's a bad picture to demonstrate--and big--sorries) has plain cotton jersey trim. It's loose because I wanted it to be, but you can make your neckbands, cuffs, bottom bands as tight as you want them--just stretch.  It's easy sqeezey!

I don't know what a bumper jack extruder is?
It's actually an extruder that you can make out of an old car bumper-jack.  I found it in a book, Pottery Making Illustrated, I got at the library.  It looks cool. 

Oh are any of you making holiday gifts this year? Any different ideas? mugs and bowls are getting old.

I'm really getting into boxes and lidded jars lately.  This week I'm working on boxes out of b-mix.  I got inspired by seeing some of Matthew Blakely's pieces like this:

5  Multi-cultural Goodness. Two skirts and a wrap-shirt. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by No_Aloha on: August 23, 2005 08:43:01 PM
More pictures of some wee little things I've sewn.  The easy-squeezy skirts are from left-over fabrics (both jersey) that I serged up the other afternoon, and the shirt I made a while back out of a rayon--it has the sweetest little asian-inspired scenes in each medallion shape.  You can't tell in the pic, but the shirt is gathered beneath the yoke in front.  

Skirt Numero Uno (warning: I have a general lackage in the hip department):

Skirt Numero Dos:

And the shirt..pay no nevermind to the goofy face and peeking brazier!:

6  International Llama Assoc.---Island problems...how can I fix it? in Stenciling: Discussion and Questions by No_Aloha on: January 17, 2005 04:25:19 PM
Yeah, so I really really really wanted to do a shirt with this:   (hope I got that right.)  Anyway, the way it is...it's pretty much impossible to stencil, cause the islands (I think they're called) have nothing to connect to in many places.  I don't have photoshop, so I was wondering if there was any other way that I can go in there and make some alterations.  Hope this isn't an annoyingly novice question.
