Love that even though it's "Frankenwallet" you could use it anytime.  Nicely done!
22  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / HELP! How to make a detachable monkey tail for a 2 year old?!? on: October 13, 2009 05:54:22 PM
I'm making a monkey costume, but want the tail to be detachable so the little one can sit in the car seat.  The tail will be stiff.  How in the world am I going to make it detachable AND keep it attached and sticking out like it's supposed to when it IS attached?

Thanks, I've been wondering about the same machine.  I just found out about it existed the other day.  I'm going to have to check out that yahoo group.
24  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / recommendation for HEAVY DUTY machine on: October 09, 2009 08:11:26 PM
I want a machine that will sew leather and denim without acting like I'm killing it.  I've seen some Omega machines on ebay, are they as good as they sound?  Necchi?  What about the newer Vikings?  My 23 year old Viking that would eat through anything kicked the bucket and is more expensive to repair than it's worth.  *sigh* I loved it so. 

25  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Discussion and Questions / Is it too much to ask? make my own embroidery design w/o spending thousands!! on: October 09, 2009 08:07:44 PM
I'm (sort of) on the hunt for a new (to me) machine.  I'd LOVE to get a machine that does embroidery, but it's not that useful to me if I can't use my own design.  I don't want to spend HUNDREDS more to buy cards with designs I don't want/need or to buy the "magic box" and software.  The Singer Futura machines are a GREAT concept, use your own computer to do the designs and embroider.  But Singer wouldn't be my first choice and the machines seem to have mixed reviews.  Are there any other brands/models that use this same concept that aren't THOUSANDS of dollars?

I made a Phoebe bag recently, also.  Do you think that the cell phone pocket didn't turn out as good because the bag tapers from bottom to top?  It seems like the basic shape of some bags make inner pockets easier or harder to do.

I cut the pocket a little short and the fabric was REALLY thick so it didn't quite do what I wanted it to do, but it still works.

On the magnetic snaps I cut a little circle from a plastic lid that would have otherwise gone to the recycle bin and use that behind the prongs.  But they are SUPER easy to put in!!  Oh and buy them in bulk on ebay or etsy, the craft and fabric stores rip you off for like $3-4 per snap!

I was looking for a purse pattern to make for a friend's birthday and found this post yesterday.  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=320502.0  It's perfect, such an easy pattern and went together quickly.  I used a really cool print, heavy, sueded home dec fabric that my machine really wasn't fond of but I muddled through.  I soooo miss my Viking machine that died a few weeks ago, it would have chewed right through and asked for more.  I'm still very heartbroken, it'll cost over $300 to repair it but it's 23 years old and I'd rather invest in a newer machine.  *SIGH*  Anyway, back to the purse!!



inside.  that's supposed to be a cell phone pocket that I 've made many times before, but sit didn't turn out so good.

Very cute.  I have a big bin of wool sweaters already felted waiting for me to tranform them.  I know what you mean about the photos, I just blame it on my camera.  But seriously, some people get GREAT shots of their products and it looks effortless.  Maybe someday I'll build a lightbox, but that sounds like alot of effort.
