I'd like to learn the ins and outs of sewing with machines. I know the basics, but anytime something goes wrong I'm clueless. I just moved, so I have no idea where to go for it though.

Sounds like fun. I just moved here too; I'm still trying to figure out where everything is (and how to get there with all the closed roads).

Thanks, I hadn't seen this site. When I forgive my machine, I'll try again.

Help me please!

Sadly, no one actually taught me how to sew, and I keep coming up against all kinds of problems. The most common and annoying one is that MY NEW MACHINE KEEPS JAMMING!

I sew for 2 seconds and then the top thread somehow gets all tangled up around the bobbin holder thingy (I also don't know the names for things). I keep having to stop before I even get started, taking it all apart, check the tension on the bobbin, put it back together, and it just happens all over again.

I don't think the machine is broken. It's less than a year old and I did manage to make a few skirts on it, but I keep coming across this problem, get frustrated, and give up. What do I need to do to fix this?

I tried to make sauce without any sort of blender, and it was disastrous. I also went a little crazy with the crushed red pepper, though.

I can't tell the difference in taste between diced and whole tomatoes, but the whole ones are really fun to squish in your hand. The seeds make it look extra homemade, too.

I'm glad there are so many bellydancers! I was uncomfortable showing off so much skin at first (especially my belly), but after more practices and a group performance I was more confident. I love my body a lot more since I've started dancing, even when I gain that extra bit in the winter.

I'd love to see the costumes you come up with StarryFerrari! Don't forget to post them!

It's so pretty; I'd be afraid to spill flour or sauce on it!

I've been lurking on here for years, getting ideas for christmas gifts and more recently, belly dance costumes. Sadly, there doesn't seem to be many bellydancers on here. Bellydancing costumes are usually around $250 and up, so diy is often the only option. Here's my past few costumes.

This one was my second bra top for our big recital. It was a tribal-y, techno-y thing where we all got a different bright color. I ended up being orange, and though I tried to make it less halloween, it was still perfect for my roommate's first viewing of Rocky Horror. I used a black bra base and added the lace (very quickly), beading, and orange material.

Here it is again for another show. I just cinched a bell-sleeved shirt over it to suit my dance.

I used part of the infinity dress tute to make this one. I used a jersey knit to sew on the two panels, then added some beads at the bottom to jazz it up a bit, then tied it in as many ways as I could come up with. It doesn't look like much compared to my friend's professional cabaret bra, but mine was a zillion times cheaper and hers doesn't come with pride.

That's it for now. I couldn't find many good pictures (I'm not so great at taking them), but when I get some more I'll add the rest of my costumes.

I like yours a lot better; especially since the whole point of his tree was to disregard capitalism and whatnot. That's what making your own stuff is all about, too!

I love that movie. *sigh*

It's beautiful! I can't believe you did everything yourself in so little time!

Simply amazing.
