1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: The Ongoing Poppet and Punkin-Along on: December 14, 2010 06:11:51 AM
Ghilie your aliens are really cute. Of course that might not mean much, I'm the kind of girl who says "naaaw" when the scary monster in horror films show up.

I'm working on my first poppet which will be a Christmas present for my niece (it was meant to be for her birthday in November, but no one needs to know that). I think it's going along well though I've hated every single body-part somewhere mid-stuffed but they straightened themselves out it seems.
I'm making it out of some velour which my machine apparently cannot feed, today I got the idea of having tissue-paper underneath and now I don't want to tear my hair out while sewing it.

I've started painting my eyes and now I'm waiting for the glittery pink layer to dry before colouring the eyes.
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / How to make a soft hem on: November 09, 2010 03:01:32 AM
I have a soft flowy synthetic chiffon material which I want to use for doll skirts which will be approximately 20cm ( 8 inches) long. My problem is that when I hem the fabric with a baby hem the edge becomes stiff thus hindering the skirt from flowing... it becomes more of a mushroom skirt. Does anyone know of a supple hem which retains the flowy qualities of chiffon?

My boyfriend absolutely loved this, though he referred to it as "knitting".
I however like the cross stitch Wink
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Bramaggeddon (aka Building a better bra) on: August 01, 2009 03:08:32 PM

Rant ahead...
I'm one of those inbetween 32E/F and 34D/DD girls, and finding a pretty bra is a hell. I also got my "grown-up size" boobs well before the age of fourteen. I always wanted to wear those cute hello kitty printed bra's, but they never went above a b-cup. It's unfair of stores to condemn young girls and women to black and white boring bra's that to top it off are ridiculously expensive. Anything that exists in any colours exists only in special stores...

Anyhow, this thread is great! I'm trying to work up the courage to make a bra so that I can finally have something pretty and colourful. 
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Ridiculously long engagement... on: July 31, 2009 02:37:45 PM
I'm not quite sure that I would count as being engaged (no rings exchanged), but me and my SO have decided to marry each other (I've always been confused how that differs from a "real" engagement)... though not until we've graduated etc... so that means atleast a five year wait, probably more. Ofcourse being of a planning and researching nature I've already started thinking about wedding dresses  Roll Eyes
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: man-gagement ring? on: July 31, 2009 02:11:08 PM
I'm Swedish and here the traditional way is that when getting engaged both the guy and the girl get a ring, and then on the wedding day only the girl gets a ring. Ofcourse the downside to this is that normally the whole proposing thing ends up being a joint descision on getting a pair of rings. My parents got engaged after walking by the window of a jewlry store and my dad saying "should we get a pair of those?"... not terribly romantic. Ofcourse the tradition makes it easier to do as I've planned and propose to my man instead of the other way around  Wink

ETA: The mans engagement ring turns in to a wedding ring once he's married.

Wow, you do beautiful work.
Have you ever thought of doing a tutorial, or a list of tools and materials?  Wink

This is amazing. Making something like this would, atleast around the people in my life, win you eternal fame and glory. If you ever make a pattern I'd love to know.

I sort of tat... I know the basics, but I've never completed a project. The problem I have is that I can't for the life of me figure out how to hide away ugly thread ends and how to add more thread...
