1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Insa Euro Pattern on: May 19, 2009 09:02:16 AM
Hi all,

I'm looking for the Insa pattern and can't find it anywhere.  Does anyone know where I can buy one or have one they'd like to sell to a fellow craftster? Grin
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / shirring question on: April 09, 2009 07:01:49 PM
I want to make a corset with a shirred back and need to know if the back part should be double the width, one and a half times the width or what?  Also what length stitch would work good?  I'm new to shirring so any other tips would be great too!  thanks a bunch!
3  Wisconsin / Wisconsin: Northeast / Ripon, Green Lake County, Wautoma, Neshkoro, etc...area anyone? on: February 20, 2009 05:09:34 PM

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / marabou questions on: October 16, 2008 09:58:47 AM
With christmas coming I'm planning on making some red velvet "santa type" things that I want to attach white marabou onto.  My questions are how do you attach it and is it washable, if so how do you wash it?  thanks a bunch!  Jessica Kiss
5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / applique on t-shirt on: July 08, 2008 10:16:24 AM
I'm trying to applique a heart onto a t-shirt and when I'm satin stitching diagonally my machine keeps skipping stitches.  (I see the top thread stitching, but the bobbin thread isn't catching it.)

It's worked fine in the past for satin stitching on a t-shirt horizontally and vertically, so I'm thinking it might have to do with the grain of the fabric?  Any ideas of how to fix this?  Thanks Smiley
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / elastic waist question on: June 14, 2008 01:42:26 PM
I've been making clothes for almost 2 years, so this seams like a silly question....but, what is the "rule of thumb" for cutting/measuring/sewing an elastic waist band?  For example if the child's waist is 20 inches--how long should the elastic be cut to and how much extra measurement of elastic is needed to attach the elastic to itself?  Thanks Smiley
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / How do you make a skirt like this? on: May 19, 2008 09:41:38 AM
I love the simple shape of this skirt, but I'm wondering how do you make one?  Specifically what would be the "rules of thumb?"

8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / serger-what for? on: April 23, 2008 09:00:00 PM
I bought a serger a few months ago, it's been collecting dust and I'm wondering now why I even bought it (other than reading that everyone who's anyone serges Roll Eyes, LOL!)?  I'm still unclear about just what they're used for, other than finishing seams...which IMO zigzags are fine and really durable.  So, my question is what do you use your serger for and basically what's so great about them?

also, this is the inexpensive one I have-bad choice, piece of junk, good, or what?


thanks Cheesy
9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / toddler pants pattern on: January 04, 2008 08:24:54 AM
Can anyone tell me a good pattern for toddler pants?  (one that doesn't have a funny long crotch...etc...) Grin
10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Euro patterns-seam question on: November 07, 2007 05:53:36 PM
I'm thinking of buying some Euro patterns, but am not keen on the idea of having to add my own seam allowance.  Would it work to just cut out the next size up, then sew the seam at the distance between sizes?

Actually I've never seen a Euro pattern (actual pattern pieces, I mean) so do they look just like regular multi-size patterns?  Because if they do I THINK it would work.
