I so want your machine. I love the vine detail. I am using an old brother and it doesn't have any nice stitch settings.  Sad

I found this cute tweety bird fabric at Walmart in there discount section. it was only $2.00 a yard. I used about 1/4 yard and some bias tape that cost $1.44. the bloomers are made of another discount find that cost me $1.00 a yard. all together this dress cost about $2.75 to make.

this is my youngest son helping his sissy to model her new dress.

hello fellow crafters,

I wanted to wait  and show off all the different things that I have made over the last few weeks all at once but sadly I can't show off. almost everything that I have made was in the wash that had a blue ink pen in it. all my hard work down the drain   Sad

oh well. just glad I hadn't spent a bunch of money on fabric Smiley

to make me feel better I went and got some really cheap but cute fabric from walmart to replace what was lost. when I saw this sunny fabric I knew how I wanted to use it.

it is a holter top dress with shirring on the back and matching bloomers.

here is an image of the back

the matching bloomers

Here is a close up of the fabric

thanks for looking c&c always welcome
15  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: That Consumer Protection Act (for lead/phthalates) on: May 04, 2010 03:33:06 PM
this is a very complicated issue. i have done alot of research on the cpsia regs. from what i have been able to decipher from the legalize that the law is  written in is as follows.

anyone who make, sell, gift, donate, distribute, import, or export childrens toys appearal, or care iteams are subject to to new law. if the items are not marketed to children 12 and under or marketed for geeral cosumer use then it doesn't. but it will still need to comply with FCC regulations.

most textiles are exempt from the regulations if they are make from natural or synthetic fibers. all paints, varnish, or coating material, metals, buttons, zippers, etc. are subject to regs. and testing. for the paints you use each different color is subject to seperate testing.

as for labeling your items, lables need to be worded to comply with both CPSIA and FCC reg. they must be permently attached to your product where it is prudent to do so. If you are unable to attach a label to your product then the packaging needs to have the required information on it.

16  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: Sewing needle injuries, anybody? on: May 03, 2010 03:22:21 PM
I had to put in my bit here too.....
1. dropped a case full of pins on the carpet and didn't find the last one until the middle of the next day right into my foot.
2. I was reconstructing a futon mattress into a twin sized mattress for my son and using one of those curved needles. I must have stabbed everyone of my fingers.
3. I was hand stitching a white cotton top and stabbed the needle under my nail. luckily it didn't bleed too much.

19  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: The (new) Etsy critique thread! on: April 28, 2010 03:00:45 PM
saint angel-

as I don't have my own esty shop as of yet (hope to start up soon!!!!) I can only give you a critique as a shopper. hope it helps.

First off let me say that I thinks your plushies are super cute and at a great price for being handmade. The only issue I could see is the shadowing. the plushies throw a shadow that is very slightly off putting.

I like the fact that included that you use safety eyes.
