1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: how to stop bias binding rippling? on: November 13, 2010 04:30:04 PM
I'd always cut it on the bias if you want to be able to go around curves and corners. The bias allows it to stretch and make nice smooth curves.
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: HELP! Bias tape disaster on a bib I'm making for baby shower gift! on: November 13, 2010 04:25:28 PM
I did bias binding for the first time a week ago, and I found the corsetmakers community on livejournal invaluable ( http://community.livejournal.com/corsetmakers - very knowledgeable and helpful ladies)

There should be no stitching visible from the front really, if you do it right. The trick is to have the back side just slightly wider/longer than the front and to stitch in the ditch. (or hand stitch from the back if you are patient, which I am not. I made a little diagram with photos from a test chunk from my corset project. I hope this helps for your future bias binding.

This is hilariously awesome. The eyebrows killed me.
4  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Re: Colours, colours, colours. What's best with red hair/blue eyes? on: October 13, 2009 06:08:42 PM
I have red hair, blue eyes, and fair skin with freckles. I wear blue, green and grey almost exclusively. I think the blue would look amazing with your hair color. Purples and pinks with naturally red hair usually look disastrous.

In order to stretch shoes a little bit, put plastic baggies with water in them, then freeze. The water expands as it turns into ice, stretching the leather. Hope that helps you wear your new shoes. Smiley
