1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Interfacing on: September 06, 2010 02:40:38 AM
So here's the deal: I need to get fabric interfaced but I don't have interfacing.
I want to make this: http://verypurpleperson.com/2009/10/wallet-tutorial.html
I'm not sure where I can get it around here and I'd prefer not to spend money right now because I'm trying to save some. I'm wondering if I stitch two fabrics together it'd work as fabric interfaced. I also have padding but it'd make a very bulk wallet so it kinda sucks.
Thank you Cheesy
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Something dirty to make art? on: May 01, 2010 05:13:32 AM
Well I've got some special items that I really want to frame, but since they're: one pair old shoes with dirt, t-shirt and jeans full of stains and some hair, they're not exactly pretty. They mean a lot so I really wanted to ask for some ideas to show them and still make it pretty.
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Storage Boxes on: July 31, 2009 04:11:42 PM
First let me just say I don't know how to use my sewing machine but I'm planning on doing this and I've been thinking about it, so I just wanted to have some opinions. Let's assume I'm going to make a storage box. I've seen people using heavy stabilizer to make it sturdy but I honestly don't know how to call it in portuguese and I'd prefer another alternative. Cardboard would be good but I want it to be washable in case it starts to get all dusty and dirty so I guess the cardboard will not be a good choice but what about foam board? I think it's what is called. It feels like a sturdy fine sponge. Anyone has any kind of experience with this? What do you think of the idea?
4  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Pure Beeswax on: March 22, 2009 09:49:56 AM
Since my lips are really cracked I asked my dad to buy me some lip balm, it was too expensive, I said him it'd be best to return it, I'd rather have my lips cracked than pay 6 for a lip balm. xD Then I asked him to buy me some beeswax. When he arrived home I saw something unexpected: pure pure beeswax:
like this http://mermaidsnaturals.com/images/P/CAR-0399_Beeswax-Pellets-Carrier-Oil-Solid.jpg
There's still some polen on it. My question is: can I still melt it add some oil and make my own lip balm? I've no clue, please help me Smiley
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / The Kiss on: December 10, 2008 03:25:15 AM
I finished this in the beginning of November, I even posted in my blog but completely forgot to post here on Craftster. it's nothing special but I liked it. When I saw this chart I knew I had to do it! I missed doing cross stitch so started right away! There isn't special use for this but I'm starting to get an idea Cheesy

Sorry for the wrinkles!
6  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / EUROPE / Leiria? Near? on: December 03, 2008 06:47:59 AM
Does anyone live in Leiria? Or near? I want to meet people who craft and live close to me. Just reply to the topic.

And one more thing for portuguese people. I'm thinking in going to college in Minho or Porto. Does anyone live there? Are there many yarn shops or craft shops? Smiley thanks!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Magic Loop on: September 11, 2008 11:11:23 AM
So today I learned magic loop, seems aweeesome *-* I've many circular needles (from my mother) but I only have one set of dpns (and with only 4 needles) but my question is, when you search for a pattern where they ask for dpns how can you do it by magic loop? If it only requires 2 or 3 it works anyway?
I'm sorry but I want to start doing circular stuff xD
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Dress Pattern on: September 08, 2008 04:06:43 PM
When I saw these dresses in the store I thought: I've to do this!
They're gorgeous right? Well I wanted to ask for some directions in the shaping (because I really don't have idea) or if anyone was a similar pattern (free) I'd love to! It's just sooo prettty!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Yarn: How can I know? on: August 24, 2008 02:51:18 PM
So I live in Portugal..I see people using certain yarn and recommending it for a certain pattern, but how can I know that I'm buying the right yarn? I don't understand nothing of yarn, at least all the types that there is out there, I usually use artificial, not 100% wool, it's too expensive.
How to make this possible? I just feel too newbie! I want to start making sweaters and everything but I don't even know what exactly gauge means, at least in knitting, why is it important? If you could help me with that too! Sorry asking so much =/
10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Singer sewing machine: trouble? on: August 20, 2008 12:21:44 PM
Hey there! I've been watching Craftster for a while now, I really want to use my machine but it isn't picking the thread. I'm not really sure what's wrong...my mother doesn't use the machine too much neither so I was wondering, sewing specialists if you could give me an advice why this is happening...I think everything is in place..I even replaced the needle for a new one...
Here are some photos if it helps: (includes with and without bobin)

Thank you! I really want to make my own clothes but I'm so lazy for hand sewing Wink I hope someone has a solution because that would mean I didn't need to spend 30 or maybe more in fixing it..
