1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Halp! Bobbin thread isn't being sewn into the fabric at all! on: October 28, 2009 08:54:06 AM
So I thread my friend's sewing machine, an old Montgomery Ward Signature model.. I take a bit of scrap fabric and the needle starts sewing, but once I pull it out, all the stitches come out, and the bobbin thread hasn't even touched the other thread. Can somebody help me out?  Huh
2  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Easy homespun acne fixes! on: August 10, 2009 08:34:43 AM
I've recently experienced a resurgence of super scary acne that seemed to come from pre-prom night horror stories, and with minimal results from the standard over-the-counter remedies I looked up a bunch of home remedies for those awful zits! I managed to concoct a few things from my findings(and using myself as a guinea pig) and I hope you like them! BE WARNED! If you want to preserve these remedies, you'll need to refrigerate! I've made these recipes on a small scale, so you don't feel like you wasted too many materials on something you only do once.  Smiley

Tomato and vinegar toner

1 small tomato
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar(If you have sensitive skin, it's best to dilute this with a bit of water)
1/4 teaspoon honey

Chop up your tomato and drain off the juices into a small bowl. Add the vinegar and honey and stir until the honey dissolves completely. Dab on with a cotton ball and rinse with cold water. This should leave your skin feeling very smooth and clean.

Banana Oatmeal moisture mask

1/3 of a banana
1 Tablespoon of dry oatmeal

Mush up the banana and mix with the oatmeal in a cup or bowl. Leave on for about 15 minutes and rinse off with warm water. (Try to avoid getting it on your hair, because it's a pain to get off with just a rinse!)

Aspirin spot treatment

10 Aspirin
2 Tablespoons Aloe vera gel

Crush up the asprin into a fine powder using a blender, pill crusher, or even a spoon and some elbow grease. In a small bowl, gradually mix in the aloe vera until it's a nice, thick paste. Apply on problem areas or as a mask for about 5 minutes and rinse off with warm water.

I hope you folks enjoy my little experiments!   Grin

 Cheesy lol give the people what they want I guess... I'm thinking about a navel ring, but I'm not sure how to go about it...  Undecided For the tats and eyeliner I just used a super fine ballpoint.. still haven't got around to getting lashes..

I hate hemming when I handsew. Angry and even if I had a machine, I don't feel skilled enough to machine sew a poppet or it's clothes, due to all the details I want. In the end, my poppet is well detailed, but the stitches are obvious and I couldn't even stuff one of the hands.. I'm a bit thumbfingered when it comes to turning small things inside out and stuffing..

The good news is, I might be able to get my hands on a machine soon and get the cahones to use it for poppeting! Now that I have a little experience, I can select a better fabric and cave in to buy real doll joints!  Roll Eyes

My boyfriend and I agreed to be Gomez and Morticia Addams... I'm now pondering if I should try my hand at making the costumes...  Roll Eyes

hi punkkid, it reminds me a little (in the skirt) of some adults doing some role playing in the bedroom. Sorry Smiley that is just what poppeted into my head.

Did you use craftewomans patterns for the undies. I made my first set, and they don't fit as well as I'd like. I like the pink though.

Haha I only noticed it once I put her in it...  Cheesy

I drafted the undies on her, no pattern. I used fabric glue to hem so it would look clean.(Do poppets do laundry? because it comes off in water..) I kinda wish the heart tat wasn't hidden, but oh well.  Tongue

More pictures, but with some underwears on.

She has told me that her name is Naomi and requested a few additions made to her...

She now has a little poppet tramp stamp and a heart that hides under her panties.(Inspired by a tattoo a friend of mine has) I also made her a cute pleated skirt, but I'm not sure how much I like it....

Thanks ghilie and everyone involved for the pattern, tutes, and helpful info. :3

She is completed!!!

Still no lashes, didn't feel like biking in the rain today...

In all her nekkie glory! Her hair is much less red IRL, but the contrast is rather striking with flash. She hasn't told me her name yet, which I think is rather impersonal considering I'm already posting her nude on the interwebs...  Roll Eyes

I thought I should warn you guys before posting the poppet porn.  Embarrassed

We love the poppet porn!

Haha I'm just one leg away.  Wink

My only worries are about making clothes for this very curvy poppet!  Cheesy

Madam, your expertise in making delicious food look like pop is rivaled only by the makers of the baby ruth candy bar.  Wink
