1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Looking for some help in selecting a serger... on: December 29, 2008 07:06:09 PM
Sorry, I tried going through the initial thread about recommendations - but it's so long and there are a lot of older links that don't seem to work any more.
I am looking for a serger to supplement my Pfaff machine (which I use for almost everything!) I found this site and I am wondering if anyone has any opinions on the machines listed. I'm not sure exactly what I'm looking for - I'm hoping to use it to finish the edges on fleece garments, seams, possibly hems, easier sewing of stretch materials, etc...


Thank you,
I'm sorry if this should be in the initial thread, but I'm hoping to get some answers sooner rather than later.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Some help requested for a sleep sack with sleeves... on: October 20, 2008 03:11:19 PM
A friend requested a sleep sack that had long sleeves and those "flaps" (for lack of a better word!) to cover her hands while their 6 month old is sleeping. Her hands get pretty cold, I guess...
I am planning to put in a zipper that goes from top to bottom (so that it is actually upside down) since I can't leave the top open with snaps or buttons since it will have sleeves...

But how do you make the flaps to cover the hands? anyone have any good tips on doing that? I think I can probably figure it out if I have enough time, but I'm sure one of you crafty ladies will have some insight!
Also, any good tutes for making the sleep sack (preferably one that might have measurements since I don't have much in the way of infant clothes around to measure).

3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Another Happy Halloween Dress! on: October 12, 2008 08:48:52 AM
DD wanted something to wear this month since she likes Halloween (she's 4 - so it's all about the candy!)
I decided I would try and use her halloween shirt from last year and just fancy it up a bit... so off to get some fabric and this is what I came up with...

I attached the skirt, lettuce edged the sleeves and sewed on the pumpkin to the front...it's supposed to match the pumpkin in the fabric of the skirt... kinda does, I think???

Comments/Criticisms always welcome!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Not sure if this really "belongs here" - but I made myself a twirly dress!! on: September 26, 2008 07:33:43 PM
Here it is! I used my imagination for the top part of the dress - and made the bottom in Vegbee's patchwork twirly dress pattern! My DD is so excited that we both have twirly dresses now! Please excuse the wrinkles!

And a close up of the fabric:

Thanks for looking! Comments always welcome!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Shots of the things I've been making this week! on: September 19, 2008 08:43:13 AM
And my new mannequin forms showed up today so I thought I'd share!
Comments always welcome!
Some crazy fabric I found on clearance that was just too fun to pass up!

This fabric should look familiar! I've seen lots of posts using it!

Another cute skirt

Are you seeing a trend here???

And the boy was feeling a bit neglected, I think so some cute lounge pants for him!!

Thanks for looking!!

I have been a member for a few weeks now - but was lurking long before that! I have made several things from the awesome tutes I have found here - and would like to show them off!

My first twirly dress:
My first shirred knit top:

My first peasant top:

And a few other things I've done:
Bandana skirt dress:

And some overalls (still need to do the buttons and I'm trying to decide if I should do snap tape or just sew up the legs:

Enjoy - comments always welcome!
