1  UNITED STATES / Maryland / Re: Looking for collaborators or folks for brainstorming... on: March 02, 2010 07:11:26 PM
I have a shop in Hampden and always want fellow crafty folk for some chit-chat.  Plus if you make anything you'd like to sell, I'm useful for that too!  My name is Angela, and 9th Life is where I spend most of my time.  Stop by and say Hi!

Thanks for the info!  Those patterns are right up my alley of clothing I like to wear!  I saw the option of using the Fray Check on a video somewhere, the idea of that seems a little untrustworthy to me too.  Lol.  I really want to make pants now... Thanks!
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Instruction Book vs. Instruction CD with serger on: December 04, 2009 10:43:16 AM
So the time came to re-thread my new serger.  Well, I was actually not scared.  I had threaded the Singer Tiny Serger with no problem before.  Although I never actually used it, lol.  Well, reading the book it came with, ot told me to thread the lower looper with the ending number to follow is to go just under the upper looper.  Well... no chain was made from such a threading!!  So I was like.. fine, I'll watch the CD to see if that helps.  Well the darn CD tells me to go OVER the Upper Looper.  So I try that, and now it chains.  What is with that?!  No wonder threading a serger gives people nightmares.  Stuupid book.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I have a new serger, what should I make?! on: December 03, 2009 11:39:58 AM
So I just got the Brother 1034D Serger for my birthday.  And so far I have done a couple of stitched here and there, tryong to get used to it.  I am a little lost on how to make the end or begining chain not be so apparent, other then stuffing it into the stitch.  But thats no big deal.  I'm just trying to think of things to make with it.  I need some new project ideas!  What kind of things would/did you make with your first serger?

Well, Number one: That hoodie is adorable, I only wish I found the time when my son was smaller to make such awesome clothes!
Number Two:  Where did you get that bed set?!!?  I WANT!
Thanks for sharing your awesomeness!

Thank you, I'll have to try to find some better jersey, I mostly recycle t-shirts... which is most likely what is giving me less stretch. 
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Multi-size skirt, will a serger help? on: November 05, 2009 01:45:17 PM
I have been making skirts with a jersey waistband for some time now.  I recently came across someone on Etsy making skirts just like it, but she seems to have a better way of making them.  My "fit" doesn't seem to span as far as hers.  I also noticed she seems to be cutting the fabric straight, I have been cutting a semi circle for my skirts.
Example of her skirt:  http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=33853360

I sell my skirts in my brick and mortar shop mostly so I don't feel like I'm trying to copy to steal sales or anything.  I just think if I made them more like her way, I'd have less waste fabric leftovers and be able to sell more do to a better span of fit.  I am getting a serger for my b-day and am wondering if this might be what gives her the ability to fit S through L.  Any comments would be awesome, thanks!
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Setting Speedball with Heat gun on: August 01, 2009 07:31:50 PM
So I'm really broke since I bought a brick and mortar store complete with Screens for printing.  I'm heating my tee's inked with Speedball Fabric ink with a Home Depot Heat Gun.  The instructions said I could use an iron but that didn't seem to work.  I have to make 185 tee's in a week.  Thats alot of gunning!  Anyone have any better idea's?  Because I really don't have a dime to my name.  Thanks
9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Stupid Swimwear Season... UGH! on: July 29, 2009 12:47:23 PM
Thanks, I really like the last link!  I ended up with scraps from thrifted swimtops and pieced something together, still without sleeves, so back to the basic of yesteryears of cropping a hoodie into a shrug and wearing that into the water...
Yeah I had thought of those odd fishnet tan lines.. but I was kind of interested to see the outcome of many a tanning days... since I never show my arms anyway... buuuut back to the basics it shall be this year.. maybe next year i'll be more on the ball... or the treadmill!  lol!  Thanks everyone!
