1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: I Found a Non-Toxic Waterproof Fabric! Opinions Please! on: September 07, 2010 10:26:14 PM
Now that is really interesting!  I will definitely have to look into that.  I must admit, though, that it makes me sort of nervous how they just tacked onto the end that it is food-grade.  From my understanding, it is quite a procedure to get something FDA approved as food-safe, so it's usually a heavy selling point.  However, it could be that the food-safety test was a side test they did to get it approved, say, for use with babies, so they don't understand it's selling attraction.  I also wonder who it is food grade with?  FDA?  Oeko-tex?  More research, says I!  This sounds like a great lead though, definitely one of the best ones we've had so far.

OMFG you made that pattern from something you saw?  Just by looking?  It's super cute!  I love the little belt!

I've used a zipper before and haven't had any leakage...of course, I did not keep the bag full of water upside-down for hours, but for at least a few minutes no water got through.  Not sure how medically safe it would be, of course...

Thanks for all the nice comments!  Unfortunately, I can't tell you what the pattern number is because half of my stuff is in storage right now, including all my patterns.  Sad  I used a regular zipper because I did not have an invisible.  Thanks for the zipper insertion idea, Scrappy Sue!  I'll definitely try that.  Smiley
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Vintage 50s Pattern on: April 24, 2010 05:19:08 PM
I found a Vintage 50s pattern for a cute summer dress and whipped one up out of brushed cotton in a safari-esque pattern.  I'm pretty proud of how it turned out, it was my first time with a few of the techniques (including making and inserting my own piping, which was a pain).  I ended up pretty majorly altering the front, from two darts on each side to a side bust dart plus princess seams up the front (this was a result of not making a muslin, something I will definitely do next time!).  I ended up taking the hem up a good bit as well--it was definitely a tea-length for someone much taller than me, so I took it up to make it hit just above the knee for me (one of my favorite skirt lengths).  I know the zipper isn't as smooth as it could be--I'm still trying to find a zipper insertion method that works for me.  Smiley  Let me know what you think!  Smiley

PS-sorry for the pink slippers!  lol
