1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / I made some oven mitts!!! on: June 10, 2009 07:46:39 AM
I've been trying to come up with new things to craft, so this time it's oven mitts.  I have been making them in every cool fabric I can get my hands on, hehe.  They have insulated batting in them which works pretty good I must say. Wink

as my new magnets!  I got a little carried away with kawaii foods and shrink paper Smiley

3  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / New veg has some questions on: March 17, 2008 06:17:17 PM
I've been toying around with the idea of vegetarianism for a looong time, but I'm really picky so it hasn't gone very far.  That is until my new doctor informed me that my cholesterol is super high.  Right now I'm still eating a little meat (usually when we eat out), but if all goes well & I discover more yummy veggie things then maybe I'll go veg full time.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had a recipe for "ground beef"?  I like the Morningstar Farms crumbles, & I got some Yves to try, but I can see that getting expensive over time.  I bought some TVP, but I don't know exactly what to do with it.  Do I just fry it up or what?

I've seen a lot of recipes with chickpeas, but I've never had them.  This may sound dumb but... what do they taste like?

I think that's it Smiley   If anyone has any "meaty" veg recipes or picky person ideas, I'm open to suggestions.  Thanks!

I've wanted to do this for a long time, so after seeing some on here I figured I would give it a try.

I silk screened the skulls on lime twill, I love how it turned out  Grin
5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / New Serger, Simple Question on: December 21, 2005 01:38:00 PM
My old serger broke (after a whole year Angry), & I got a new one.  It's great & I love it!  But it doesn't have a little waste bin to catch all of the cuttings like my old one/other one has.  Do machine companys generally sell these?  Anyone have diy ideas? 

It's a Juki MO-655 if that helps.
6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Serger Problems :( on: November 01, 2005 05:10:04 PM
Hello, I'm having some serger issues.  I own the Singer 14T957DC serger, a 5 thread model w/ coverstitch.  There are 5 slots for needles, 3 in front and 2 in back.  So a few months ago I was using some 4 thread stitch, and the left back needle broke several times.  It seemed that it was smashing on the throat plate.  Today the right back needle is breaking, due to smacking off of the upper looper (i think anyway).

I'm still somewhat a serger newbie (I got it last November I believe), but this seems to be some allignment issue right?  Has anything like this happened to any of you?  Any simple fixes?   Huh

I'll probably end up taking it to the shop, but I really don't want to as I was planning on sewing lots to make some extra holiday money.  That'll set me back a bit time and money wise, boo!

thanks for any help!!
7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / How to make a lightweight fabric heavier? on: September 03, 2005 09:20:40 PM
I just bought some nice soft corduroy at JoAnn's to make myself some pants.  Of course when I get home, I notice that its pretty light weight stuff Sad

Is there a way to make it heavier?  If so, how?  I feel so dumb  Undecided
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Gift for a guy in the hospital? on: February 03, 2005 10:21:13 PM
It seems like no one knows of any 'get wel soon' guy gifts...  My little lumpkins is sick & I must craft for him!  I need something um, manly, but with the spiffy girlfiend touch and screams love. Wink

I've gotten a few cards, going to get a nice lil' flower in a vase or something... but other than that I'm drawing a blank.  I was thinking of making one of those tied together fleece throws, but that's only if I can still find some nascar fleece (he likes sports & such).  Perhaps something for him to do while he's there?

Any help is GREATLY appreciated!
9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Anyone know where I can find this knit fabric? on: January 09, 2005 11:50:58 PM
Ive been searching all night for fabric  Undecided

I'm looking for a striped t-shirt type material (or lycra or anything stretchy at this point) w/ equally sized stripes, around .5"-1", in the colors black/white, black/pink, black/lime, & black/red.  Also polka dots in pink/white & black/white.  Smiley

I can't find these anywhere!  It's driving me nuts, so any help is greatly appreciated.  Kiss
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How can I make my jeans & such LONGER? on: October 06, 2004 10:27:47 AM
I'm around 6' tall, and I need around a 37"-38" inseam.  A few stores have finally started stocking such long jeans, but I found a pair I really really like that are tooo short.  Does anyone have any ideas on how to add fabric to the bottoms or something, so it isn't too noticable?

I also have pretty long arms & have this problem w/ sleeves, any tips for that too?

Thanks for any help Smiley
