11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / sewing nylons/pantyhose? on: November 29, 2007 10:06:30 PM
Hi guys I hope you can help me, I just bought this wonderful pair of cuban foot pantyhose/nylons (for $20 so you see why I don't want to toss them) and on the first wearing as with all pantyhose I ever buy the crotch ripped >_<.

So I was wondering if anyone has ever converted full hose into leggings or sewn them before? Are they sewable? will they fray? what should I do?

I have made people with chemical allergies a gift basket that contains everything they need for making their own chemical free cleaning products complete with spray bottles, recipes for the products and ingredients. Mostly its just cause I am a big hippy and I want to save the environment.

Compared to other poly fairies I really think yours are beautiful and retro looking. I really like the detail in the faces, but the bodies are where they are unique; that they don't look like barbie dolls (like p. rose ones do) is really fantastic.

I have a question though: How do they hold up to weather? I was thinking of trying to make some for my garden but I have never worked with the poly-clay, is it weather resitant? or is there a way you can make it so?

Thanks all! I'll whip a tut up over the weekend and post it. This is a really large bag so I'll give measurements for diffrent sizes.

One of my friends bought a Thai shoulder bag from a shop in BC and it looked really simple to make so I thought I would make it my first real sewing project. I found some great pinup girl fabric and some nice green cotton and went at it! Now I have a fantastic bag for shopping at the market!

If enough people are in interested I suppose I could put up the pattern I made from the top of my head.

Thanks for looking!

I like it, love that it's reversible! What are the measurements on the bag? Is it big or small?
Thanks, this one is very tiny, just because I was trying the pattern out. So it measures 50 cm long, 20 cm wide. The bag I am working on right now (and will have posted pics soon) is going to be 50 inches long and 20 inches wide.

i love it just the way it is actually.
Thank-you, I really like the fabric... I think i'll give this tiny-one away at christmas with a bottle of wine in it.

I made this tonight out of some fabric my girlfriend had previously made slipcovers out of, my intent was to see if a pattern for a hobo bag I had in mind worked out before I used my $20 a meter fabric.

I think it did, but this is my first ever bag project so if there are any suggestions or tips on making these, that would be fantabulous.



Thanks for looking!

hey I don't know of a pattern but I have an idea; maybe a nearby medical supply store sell some and they would let you take measurements?

To make the thrift item "un-ugly" are you aloud to add pieces of fabric and or trinkets and beads that arn't apart of the "main" piece, and if so do they also have to be second hand? Or can you combine uglies?

Maybe my question is too confusing.
