4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: selling childrens clothes and diapers on: June 13, 2009 02:08:37 PM
For making cloth diapers I suggest looking into becoming licensed by a pattern holder. Trimsies, Darling Diapers Unlimited, Little Comet Tails, Chloe Toes, Fattycakes, Artistry Creates and other popular cloth diaper patterns have various licensing where you submit a sample of your work and if approved pay a fee (amount of fee varies depending on the pattern) and you can sell diapers made from that pattern. I suggest that because a lot of cloth diapering moms won't buy a diaper they've never heard of before... you want to know it will work, that it's absorbent, that it won't leak, that it's a good fit and dependable. So by getting that licensing, you've already got a good reputation behind the diaper pattern to help you. I'm just suggesting this because drafting a cloth diaper pattern is a lot of work, and if you don't have a baby to test the diaper on you won't be able to continually tweak it until it's just right, ya know?

As for clothing, I'm not really sure.

Hope this helps.

It depends. I don't make clothing so I usually stick with one yard, unless it's a great deal or I love, love, love the fabric or have something specific in mind for it.

I also love buying remnants.
6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Good prices for thread? on: October 08, 2008 09:01:32 PM

I just ordered my new sewing machines and now I need thread. I'm tired of the generic walmart stuff and want some good quality stuff, but at a somewhat decent price. Do you know where I could find some mettler thread for a good price?

I'll also be needing things like new bobbins, needles, stabilizer, etc, so if you could send some links my way I'd appreciate it!

Wow, I feel like a cheapskate. A royal penny pincher.

I'm refusing to buy some amazing retired fabric I love at $20 a yard. And I'm cringing at spending $9 a yard on black, white and red fabric for my new baby's toys.

This is making me feel a bit better about spending.

Thank you so much for sharing this with us. I've been hearing about a hidden stitch but had no idea how to do it/what it was, and believe me, my hand stitches look anything but hidden! I can hardly wait to try this out.

Oh, I love it! I just hate cutting all the little squares, it's so time consuming. Do you mind if I ask you a few questions?

How big were each of the squares?
Did you add fabric to the back of the mattress pad before quilting, or just sew the mattress pad and bandana fabric?

It looks so cute. I think I'm going to make a diaper bag one this week. Maybe.  Tongue

Great job!
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Elastic pocket help on: June 22, 2008 05:22:25 PM
This may sound dumb, but I've been wracking my brain for some time trying to figure out elastic pockets. I've seen tuts for them, but there's one question I've never seen answered. Does the elastic need to be the same length as the pocket top? Or do you stretch it out some and then sew it that way? If you stretch it, then how much shorter do you cut it than the pocket top?

Do my questions make sense or are they confusing?

I'd really like to start a diaper bag tomorrow with elastic pockets and would appreciate any help or tips you could give me.
