I love love love all your great hats!! I can't believe you had only been knitting, what was it....three months...when you started Spongebob...that is amazing!!

I also love that you just decided that since you where pregnant you needed to know how to knit and just dove in...I've been trying to learn off and on forever and never make it past a few inches of work..lol

I think you are doing great! I am still pretty new to sewing myself, had my machine for almost two years but I haven't had much time to work with it this past year. I am still learning new things every time I use it!

All your stuff looks great to me and I love the fabrics for your upcoming quilt. I haven't been brave enough to try a quilt yet...lol

Thanks sewpink! That does help clear it up some for me. It's like using the lighter fusible interfacing to help hold the heavy stabilizer in place on the outside fabric. Now that I know how it works I think I can find the right kinds of substitutes.  Cheesy

Oh yea...turns out the xtra heavy stabilizer I had was not iron-on. Found that out when working on another project the other day...I'm not even going to admit how many times I tried to get it to adhere before figuring out what the real isssue was.....it was NOT fusible....  Embarrassed

I'm sorry to hear about your Father. We lost my Dad 10 days ago so I can really understand what you're feeling. Dad wore shirts like these all the time and I think this is a great idea. I wish I had more time until Christmas but in any case I may start working on something like this for my family...we are all having a hard time and I can see this being a comfort. My thoughts are with you and your family.

I hope you don't mind if I borrow this idea...I just think it is wonderful!
19  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / AB - Blossom Bag - Stabilizer and Interfacing Help on: December 20, 2010 08:26:38 AM
I recently fell in love with the Amy Butler Blossom Bag and decided I wanted to make it but I am confused on some of the materials I need.

Link for free pattern is here: http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/?p=11705

It lists these two materials needed:
1. 3 yd (2.74 m) of 20" (50.8 cm) wide fusible woven
interfacing (I use Shape Flex SF-101 by Pellon)

2. 2 1/8 yd (1.94 m) of 20" (50.8 cm) wide Peltex #70 by
Pellon or a similar extra-heavy stabilizer

My only source for fabrics and crafting material is Wal-mart and of course they did not have these exact things. I am a beginner to intermediate sewer and I know this bag is a bit ambitious for me but I learn through trial and error mostly so I am comfortable just going for it and seeing what happens. The problem is that I don't know enough about interfacing/stabilizer to pick suitable substitutes. I did purchase some extra-firm stabilizer that I hoped would work for the Peltex she listed...it is fusible and I'm not sure if the one she listed was fusible or sew-in though.

I don't know what to get for the woven interfacing. Is this a more light weight interfacing or one of those really firm ones?

Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated...or if anyone knows of a good site that helps explain the mystery of stabilizers or interfacings that I could learn from.

20  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Givers and Needers Round 6 Gallery on: February 16, 2010 05:44:29 PM
Love all these great packages...this is a great swap!

I'm still without a computer and I am trying to cope but it's hard...lol

I'm going to be a day late sending out but if all goes well I will be mailing my thank you gift tomorrow. We have just had nothing but snow, snow, and more snow. I have been stuck in the house so much I am going stir crazy!!! You would think being stuck indoors with no computer....that I would get so much crafting done...but it doesn't work like that for me. I can't get anything done when everyone is home and especially when they are all bored and suffering from cabin fever! I think it's snowing again too...hopefully it won't cause the roads to be bad tomorrow so I can get to the P.O.!
