1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / PVAGlue/Masking Glue on: May 10, 2010 05:19:58 AM

I want to do a stencil on canvas & have a probably quite dumb question!! I just wondered if I can use PVA glue instead of masking glue. Will it peel off the canvas quite easily or will it end up ruining everything?

Tha :-*nk you xxx
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / New to this - please help! on: August 01, 2009 05:13:24 PM
Hi Guys
I'm new to making plushie things and I'm struggling on an aspect.
I'm making a Salad Fingers doll for my friend. If you're not familiar with Salad Fingers - you can see him here: http://bluejaunte.files.wordpress.com/2008/12/salad_fingers.jpg
I know, he's weird, but we like him!
Anyway, I've constructed the head and stuffed it, but I haven't sewn the bottom yet. I'm about to make the body, but I really want it to look authentic so I need it to have those weird shoulders with his head hung low, so how can I sew the head to the body without the head floping around everywhere? Huh
I'm not sure if I'm just being stupid - but I just can't think the best way to do it and I know the geniuses of craftser will be able to help me!!
Thanks guys xx
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / New to Quilting! Just a little Question? on: January 16, 2009 07:13:33 AM
Hi Guys
I'm new to quilting (this project is my first ever atempt!!) and firstly wanted to say that you are all amazing at what you do!

I just wanted to ask...

I'm going to try free style sewing on the quilt. I am using blocks of colour (rather than patterned fabric) so I plan to use the same colour cotton on each piece of the quilt of that colour (does that make sense) So red cotton for red, black cotton for black etc. But, thats going to look messy at the back isn't it, as the back is just going to be one colour. Huh
I know it's probably better to use just one colour for the whole quilt, but as there are no patterns on my fabric, the cotton will really show up on some of the other colours/
What do you think is best to do?

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / What can I use to seal my table? on: March 22, 2008 03:43:28 PM
I bought a pooey table from ebay and ecided to recon it. I've sanded it down to get the veneer off and I've wallpapered the top. I just wodered what will be the best thing to seel it with? (it's going to be sewing machine table)
The guy at the diy store recommened this spray seelant that dries super shny so I bought it but after doing a test on a scarp of the wallpaper it's not going to work.
Would just a clear varnish/laquer do the job? I'm worried about it soaking through the paper and ruining it.

Thanks for any help

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Pattern Trouble - Simplicity 4230 Jackets on: September 24, 2006 02:55:18 PM
Has any one tried this pattern? And if so did you encounter any problems?
I tried to make view B this week t0 go with a cute skirt that I made. Anyway, I'm in UK and pattern size is in US.
I checked out my measurements. Now in UK i'm a size 10 which is a US 6 (ish!) According to this patern am a size 12 - American size 12?! 3 whole siezes bigger than I am. Anyway I though best to cut that too big instead of too small cos I can always cut it smaller once I've tried it the first time. SO I cut it and made it to the 12 and it's HUGE on me. My waist size is roughly 26" and thats what I followed.
 Also, is it me or  Simplicity Patterns_? not so Simple to follow? I've never used Simplicity before but used loads of other makes and I've never been so confused by a pattern in my life!!
All other patterns that I've followed using my sizes against theirs have come out perfect!
Sorry for the long post but - GRRRR!
Any one else suffering with not-so-simplicity?
7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Making Button Holes on Sewing Machine on: September 19, 2006 02:30:43 AM
I'm sorry if something lke this has been posted before. I did a search but nothing came up.
Can anyone please tell me how to make button holes on a sewing machine. Is the machine supposed to have an attachment or something, becasue if it does I must have lost mine!
Is is possible to make them without an attachment?
Also do you make the hole before or after the sewing?  Huh
Basically I know nothing about this at all! so as much information as possible would be great
Thanks guys
