1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: HELP! My sewing machine/bobbin is going crazy! on: May 29, 2009 12:43:46 AM
I used to have this problem all the time, until I realized it would only happen when I changed the bobbin thread. The sewing machine overwound the bobbins - all I needed to do was unwind the bobbins a bit.
I hope you figure it out!

i just wanted to say



I had tried EVERYTHING, (or so it seemed!)

but I've finally discovered through the magic of the internet, that the problem might be that my bobbin was overloaded. Like previously mentioned, by bobbin "automatically" stops when full, so I never thought that would be the issue, but....

I unwound it a bit, and PRESTO

my machine sews like butter on a muffin again.

They're very cool. Well done for having the balls to do that. Could you perchance tell us the recipe for the icing? It looks very tasty! Thanks! Smiley

The "icing" is actually marshmallow fondant, and it was SUPER easy.

I melted a small bag of marshmallows , added in about a half a cup of water (just enough so that they're good and smoothly melted, added a bit of food colouring.
Then you coat a large bowl with icing sugar (enough so that the marshmallow goo doesn't stick to the bowl- you need more than you'd think) and pour the marshmallows into the bowl.

Then you just keep kneading in icing sugar until it becomes a dough-like consistency. MESSY, but pretty straightforward. I just stuck my whole hand in there and got good and sticky. (wow that sounded a lot more risque than I intended!) Knead the dough into a ball, and sprinkle with yet more icing sugar to prevent sticking, wash your hands of all the sugar...

then you coat your hands with crisco and go to town sculpting tiny genitalia. Or whatever you want. After they were done I put them in the freezer to "set" for a while.

You cook the cupcakes first, and wait till they're completely cooled, or the fondant will melt all over everything.
 Then you take the cupcake "lids" out of the freezer, put whatever you want to use to stick the sculptures to the cupcake on the tops of the cupcakes (i used a tiny bit of betty crocker icing cause i'm lazy, but cream cheese icing would work, or just icing sugar and water), and stick those vaginas on there.

after that I brushed the bits I wanted hairy with just a bit of water to make them sticky again before I grated the chocolate on top of them. Then add a little ball bearing, and presto!


4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: Giraffe 'Scoodie' Variation on: December 04, 2008 05:49:37 PM

I was scrolling through, took one look at this and made screeching noises! Its adorable.

My SO came over and was like; "what are you screeching about, and i said: "its the cutest banana slug scarf! How awesome is that!!!"

And he goes, "no you idiot, that's supposed to be a giraffe."

So I'm sorry for misinterpreting the scarf.

I still think its adorable. Although I think its MORE adorable as a slug scarf than a giraffe, strangely enough.

As a student teacher I can only tell you that it would be SO SUPER AMAZING to receive something like this!!! She must be a relly great teacher for you to put that effort in!

What a lucky lady!

Sorry but... what exactly is a Joy toy party?


It's a party where the company brings a bunch of adult toys to the host's house, and then they tell you ALLLL about them,
You play slightly inappropriate games and test out some of the candles and oils and massage bars and tell naughty stories.
Then at the end you can buy stuff, and the host gets 10% of the amount that people buy in free goodies for themselves.
It was less awkward than you'd think, it was actually LOADS of fun.

These crack me up!  The only problem is I feel under-represented.  I'm a hot black chick and I don't see ANY of those that look like mines!!!  LOL

WHere's the chocolate ones?HuhHuhHuh?? Cheesy

Hahahah i WAS TOOTTALLY thinking of this as I made them. But I didn't have any cocoa powder!!! Next time I'll be sure to get some!

This is the most realistic depiction of a vulva that I've ever seen in baking!

What does it say about me that those cupcakes me want to lick them?  Wink Tongue Shocked

EVERYONE at the party was doing inappropriate things to those cupcakes. It seemed no one could eat them normally.......so I guess it says that you are a normally functioning human being. Smiley
