21  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / oh oh oh! on: September 23, 2004 06:37:57 AM
you might want to try using a bit on iron on interfacing on a type of fabric like that next time you give it a go around.... maybe just use a tiiiiny strip along the places where you intend to sew? it (more than likely) will give the fabric stability so it won't strech or tear while you're using your machine! the kind to buy would be a thin knit type interfacing... that way it will stretch along with your fabric! i haven't tried this myself... but i can't imagine why it wouldn't work... so if you do try it, let us know how it goes! or maybe i will go out and buy a difficult fabric so i can try it too!
22  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / the vintage pattern lending library!! on: September 22, 2004 08:26:37 PM
hey everyone... i just wanted to post a link to the vintage pattern lending library for anyone who hasn't heard of/seen it before. basically, what it is is a vast collection of something like 3,000 vintage sewing/needlework patterns from the 1900's to 1950's... some of my favorite things are the hats and flapper dresses! anyway, the cool thing about it is that after buying a year membership ($20 is the cheapest) you can check out most patterns for $5 like you would a book at the library! there are also some patterns for sale... but i haven't looked into that out much. if you sew a lot and have a hard time finding fun exciting patterns at the usual sources (joann's, hancocks, blah blah) you should check it out!


some examples of what they have:
