2131  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Toddler jeans and pillowcase top on: March 05, 2008 08:03:18 AM
My little squidge has had a growth spurt recently and I have been doing my best to keep up.
here's the latest:
jeans and pillowcase top. the jeans were once a pair of uk sz 18 marks and spencers ones which had a worn through crotch and the patterned accents on it came from the same pillowcase as the top.
Soph is really pleased 'cos it matches her bed set (duvet cover and pillowcase- job lot from a charity shop!!) she keeps stroking it and saying "pretty fowfer" (flower).

and this is her being mummy lol!!!

electrical repairs:
1. make sure the extension you are splicing has the same fuse ampage (13A, 5A etc) as the sewing machine cable
2. make sure you do each wire individually, that way there's less chance of a short.
2a. take the exposed end of the wire from the machine, and wrap around the exposed end of the wire from the extension.
3. get a soldering gun. borrow one; it's worth it for a good repair. not essential, but I would recommend it to be safe. remember the rule when soldering is to heat the item you wish to solder, then apply the soldering wire; NOT to heat the soldering wire and rub over the join- the first way leaves a good air free join, the second way gives a bad join that will dry out in a year or so leaving you having to do it again. (computer and car maintenance skills come in handy for so many uses lol!)
4. make sure once you've joined, soldered and taped each wire individually that you check it all over VERY CAREFULLY.
5. if you take your time and make sure it's got a fused plug of the same ampage, there shouldn't be a problem. honestly.

oh, wait a min.... do US plugs have fuses in them?!

how easy are their patterns to copy? I know I have to trace them off the central sheet but it's looking REALLY daunting. I have tracing paper (well, no. I have un-coated baking paper; same thing really)
Is it as hard as it looks?

2137  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: does anyone know how to age denim? on: February 29, 2008 10:18:34 AM
all I know is how to age hems (I'm 4ft 8, i take trousers up a lot) and that's to use sandpaper. not sure it'd work on the whole material though.

you could try sticking it in a bucket of diluted vinegar and stamping on it. A LOT.
2138  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Sugar paste!?!?! Argh!!!! on: February 28, 2008 11:15:34 AM
royal icing is a p***er to get flat, it's a p***er to make even from a box mix, and it takes 3-4 days to ice a cake that way.
marzipan- allow to dry 24hours
1st layer royal icing, 12 hours. 2nd layer royal icing 12 hours, 3rd layer royal icing, 12 hours- 4th layer if you're trying to get a really smooth effect, 12 hours.....

lots of work, but I will admit it tastes a damned site better than packed sugar paste.

wow! I wish I'd had the nerve to wear something like that when I was at school.... mind you, I went to a very strict school full of closed-minded faux-snob buttheads.

I love your earrings. You have inspired me.
