1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Keep forgetting to ask this... ;) on: July 20, 2008 12:53:34 AM
I haven't been on here long enough to post pictures, but I noticed that my clothes look more professional on the inside now that I use a serger.  It just makes the seams even, perfect and cuts away the excess fabric.  You can pick up a serger relatively cheaply for this.  Mine is just a White Superlock, but has sure made a difference in the amount of time it takes to create a garment and how good the inside of it looks.

I actually received a serger for my birthday this year (february) from my mom.. it's a Brother 1043D, and I learned how to thread and use it, and I loooved it... but I was living in Virginia then, and I flew out to Arizona to live and had to leave a lot of my stuff at my fiance's parent's house. I am kinda broke, and haven't had the dough to get it shipped. But yes, I love sergers! I am just in SUCH a sewing mood but I don't want the insides to look like poop.

Lol thanks!

I am going to take pictures (hopefully good ones) of my raw seams and post for tips.

I have pinking shears!! I just never got around to using them.
But I am fascinated to hear how to do the honk kong seam and such. Smiley

I am what I call an advanced-beginner at sewing and making clothes. I love everything about it, I do it every day, and I want to get better.

I keep forgetting to ask about this here, but I just remembered!

Could you find ladies (and gents) possibly post pictures of your finished clothing's SEAMS and hems? Like, what they look like on the INSIDE? I have a knack for making things look good on the OUTSIDE, but the inside (the seams, etc.) look like POOP! lol Smiley

Thanks in advance!
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Birthday gift for my mom?? on: July 16, 2008 05:27:07 PM
My mom's bday is on the 21st, so I want to get this sent out soon, as she lives in CT and I am in AZ.

but I have absolutely NO IDEA what to get her.

She isn't like most moms, she's like a 25 year old in a 49 year old's body.

She's a tarot card reader/astrologer, so she LOVES anything that has moons and stars on it.
She likes dark colors.
She LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVES Tom Waits, he's her hero.

I am thinking about making her a mix cd, with a big, artsy flip book and each individual page will represent each individual song? What do you think?

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

That sea-shell owl is SOOOO adorable.

Also, nice name for your daughter. It's mine too. Smiley
