1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / tutorials for mens clothing? on: February 04, 2012 04:54:17 PM
Are there any tutorials out there for mens clothing that aren't dress stuff, pajamas, boxers, or accessories? I'm looking for things like cool shirts, or pants. Am I just doomed to buy the 3 patterns available for men and customize them myself?

This is the link you need =)

She has tutorials for making all kinds of wraps/carriers for babies. FYI, the stretchy wraps don't last as long as woven or mei tais or anything like that. The heavier baby gets, the less supportive knit is, and the more uncomfortable it becomes.

Embroidery is a great idea! She loves to make friendship bracelets so she already has a lot of embroidery thread. Thanks.

I swap babysitting with a friend, and her 9 year old wants to learn to sew. The problem is, she's only here for 3 hours maybe once a month.
I'd like to come up with some really simple, quick, but FUN things that we could make and teach her how to use my machine.
Do you have any go-to resources for teaching quickly or in a limited amount of time?

She won't have access to a machine at home, and probably wouldn't be able to hand sew at home without help.

I love it all! The gardening pants are so great. I'm envious of how quickly you sew! For the newborn outfit, did you just use ribbing as the accent on the neck and pocket?

Super adorable, as always.

I wonder if those would break though-I'm always super nervous about sending fragile things in the mail.

Thanks everyone. These are great ideas. Off to search the jar of hearts thing-I don't know what that is!

I'm looking for ideas on small things I can make and send in the mail (I want to send things a lot, so I need postage to be cheap, hence the need for small things)
My mom just found out she has a cancerous tumor and will be getting it removed and having radiation for a while. I want to keep her in good spirits, so I want to send her at least 1 package a week for as long as she needs it. I've been scouring the internet and found this- http://www.giverslog.com/?tag=13-ounces-or-less which has some good ideas, but is more geared toward children. I need more ideas for a 50 year old woman.
Some ideas I've already come up-tiny bunting of felt or paper, rice pack, a peg person version of her, a tiny crochet or paper basket, balloons to blow up with inspirational messages, artwork my kids have done.
I'd also appreciate ideas for creative packages! I found a tiny pink paint can at Michael's that I think would be neat to mail.

I appreciate any ideas. I can sew, crochet, needlefelt, and can probably learn to do other simple things (not knitting though)

That's so fantastic. I didn't know you could use fusible webbing with acrylic felt-ironing the felt didn't melt it?
