71  Re: Swarovski Cherry Blossom Tree (4 pics) in Beads: Completed Projects by soorawn on: April 06, 2009 06:33:11 AM
I am afraid I have no pics... I left them all behind in another country Sad
But I used green moss and big chunks of natural cork, then lichens and tiny plants to complete.
Anyway, I couldn't find a picture that gave the approximate idea either, so here's one of my sad pc drawings to illustrate what I meant, I hope it helps.

Basically, my take is that an uneven surface would look more romantic and compliment the artwork better.  So I was thinking of a triangular base.  Does it make any sense?

Edit:  I'm thinking that then the tree should have an inclination towards the slope, to keep the balance.

72  Re: question about making a pot holder - finishing edges in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by soorawn on: March 27, 2009 01:20:28 PM
I gather it is because of the thickness.  Since the corners are tougher, if you stitch through all the layers it will become difficult to stitch the corners.  Cookn will correct me if I am wrong here.
I have an example of that type of finish I think.  I made a dog blanket last week with a plastic side.  It was a fast, unaccurate job, but it was not bulky so I had no problems to sew through it all.  With batting and all it's different.
This is it (just for the sake of illustrating it and to make sure I have understood it as well):

About the curved edges... no.  As far as I know, it isn't customary.  It may be a technique to keep the corners less bulky.  But usually the bias is applied in line with the edge.

73  Re: Plastic Bag Purgatory..... in What the heck can I do with THIS? by soorawn on: March 12, 2009 08:17:11 AM
Sorry for the double post, but I am so excited!  I have been learning so much since I found this forum, and today I've tried two of the techniques I discovered here, combined.  I came up with this:

The all-recycled make-up bag!
The zipper was rescued from an old bag I had to throw away.  The material is fused plastic; this morning I gave it a try, I still need practice to get good material but the clear plastic with the fruits on top of the supermarket's came up nice.  The bag, which I made with the help of a tute from the bags section, is far from perfect... but I love it!  Cheesy
Now I have to find a way of using it... I keep collecting little bags of all sorts without even noticing!  Roll Eyes
