31  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: My first attempt at crayon tinting on: July 11, 2008 08:17:37 AM
This may be an obvious question. I read that you used Crayola brand but are we talking about regular crayons or special ones for fabric? Will the colors run if the piece gets wet? Because I LOVE the look of this and agree with other craftsters that the possibilities are great!

Beautiful work - it's wonderful to see people personalizing their living space!

As they say in Minnesota, "oh fer cute!" And thanks for turning me on to a new embroidery site - no, srsly, who needs to pay bills when there are patterns to buy...

"Back in the day" I made a vest from a really cool floral pair of pillowcases and it became a personal game to see how many compliments I would get every time I wore it and could grin to myself about the 50 cents I spent on the fabric! Your dress loves mahvelous!

Lovin' it! Such a nice selection of fabrics/colors. Can't tell if you labeled it - that's the best finishing touch so everyone will know you did this great work!

Darn, I've had that happen before. Instead of using white or blue thread to carefully handsew the seam closed, try using a light gray. Don't double your thread, use a fine needle and keep your stitches as tiny as possible while still catching fabric from both blocks. The temptation is to pull your stitches really tight and make the thread disappear but that just makes the seam buckle and gather - which we do not want! I  know that this goes against conventional quilting wisdom but as someone who also sews clothing, I've decided to make my quilt seams much wider to avoid this kind of problem.

The doll is cute (in an evil way) but your narration of the "action" is the best!

It's lovely! I've been sewing for years and still am not crazy about binding quilts either. Keep trying different options until something clicks, I guess. Great work!
