11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Too small blouses on: June 09, 2010 12:34:44 PM
I have a lot of too small bouses. I tend to be very hard on my clothing. A couple of things I have some ideas of how to remake them into something to love, but most of them I'm at a complete loss. I see a lot of recons for cloths that are too big, but any advice on the too small stuff? I'd be happy with something completely different (Like a pillow, which I plan on doing) I just don't want to throw out some of this fabric!

Thanks in advance Smiley
12  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Asking for my first machine on: March 01, 2010 06:18:37 AM
I'm looking at the Hello Kitty Sewing Machine - Green (11706). It's a 3/4 size machine and reviewers say it's the same as Janome Harmony 1017. It looks simple, but I'm a true beginner. Should I go with this one? It has a lot of great reviews, but I'm wondering if I need something a little sturdier and more versitile. I'd rather not have to buy another one in a year or two.

Oh, and to explain the topic name, I'm asking for it on my wedding registry Smiley


What would you guys reccomend for a first machine??

ETA: looking around in the forums and then on Amazon, I just found this on sale Brother CS6000I 60-Stitch Computerized Free-Arm Sewing Machine with Multiple Stitch Functions. It looks so complicated!! But at the same time, that's just another way of saying room to grow, right?


ETA: I went with the Brother Machine.
13  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Firefly Cake Topper? on: February 26, 2010 10:57:54 PM
I was brainstorming what I should use for a cake topper, when seeing this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=336609.0 earlier tonight flitted through my head. And I thought how awesome would it be to have Mal and Inara as my cake-topper??? But what medium should they be? How would I go about making this happen at all? I'm thinking Mal in his usual browncoat and Inara looking mostly like a reg. bride. (Unless there a better specific dress I should use)

Any and all advice is greatly appreciated Cheesy The cake hasn't been chosen yet, so I can base the cake off of my amazing cake toppers Cheesy
14  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Making a pattern on: October 29, 2008 07:12:25 PM
I used a website a while ago that would take a picture and turn it into a crossstitch pattern, naming the thread colors and everything. It was free and didn't require me to download anything. But I lost the link!! Does anyone know of a website like this??
15  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / idea for a craft fair. would this help?? on: March 15, 2008 07:43:34 AM
So I was at the evil wal mart yesterday, and I saw something like this http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=8592477  only it had a cover, and looked slightly more professional. It held 100 photos and was $20.

My question is this: when working a craft fair, would it be a good idea to bring a digital portfolio? just something to show unique works you've done in the past and could recreate. You obviously can't bring everything you've ever made to every craft fair, right?
