I just sat down tonight and reorganized my list.  So far I'm at over 60 and that's not all that I have marked on my Pinterest, but I highly doubt I'll accomplish all of them...you guys are awesome though, if it wasn't for you guys I'd be ignoring my crafty stuff altogether!!  Thanks for being so inspiring.  Cheesy
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Is a walking foot necessary? on: March 10, 2011 12:47:59 PM
I personally don't use a walking foot.  (I have one, I just hate it.)  I also don't use the free motion style (which is where you cover/lower the feed dogs and take the presser foot off).  I use a regular foot.  BUT there are several things you have to do to prep for a good quilting experience without a walking foot.  The number one most important thing to to baste, baste, baste.  You can use a spray adhesive or curved safety pins, whichever you prefer; just make sure your fabric is all as smooth as you can get it.  No wrinkles at all!!  Then pin the heck out of that baby...seriously, at least every 3 inches.  You'll spend a heck of a lot of time taking pins out but that's the only way you'll avoid puckers.  You'll need to help your machine feed the fabric through as well, but don't pull too hard!  It's easy to snap a needle with that much fabric under it.

So those are my tips...let me know if you try it!

I think audio has a tip for how she does hers further back in the thread.  (If I get this wrong please correct me!)  She traces her piece on the paper she's going to use to cover it, then cuts it out a little smaller than the traced lines so that it fits perfectly without any overlap.  If you ink the edges it will never show.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Alice stuff!! 

This thread is so huge you guys...you're all amazing!  I haven't had the time/energy/motivation to craft lately but I so love coming here and seeing what you're all up to!

My crafting list for this weekend is to finish the lap quilt (the top is ready, just need a backing and light batting and to quilt it), sew up some quick and easy dolls that I've already got cut out, and to start making some wooden boxes.  I have tons of ideas in my head for them but need to get to the store and get the wood so I can actually start touching them and playing.  I'm pretty excited!

i had to trash my whole cloth quilt I was working on...not enough basting and it looks horrid.  I think I'm going to try spray basting stuff next time.  I know that's not the right name for it but I'm really tired lol!

Still need to figure out backing for my lap quilt and get started on my yellow and gray one again...things need to settle down around here so the crafting can happen!  :/

this is so cute!  I am seriously envious of people like you...creative minds who can look at two separate pieces of clothing and make a new, way cute one...can't wait to see what else you come up with!

I love this so much!  The bright colors are so fun, it is charming without even having to be "charming'!  (if that made sense to anyone else.  I need sleep badly. lol.)  And congrats for taking on hexs...they still have the power to make my shudder...but yours look great and I can't wait to watch that video!
