1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Tropical cat explosion cult robe. on: April 06, 2009 10:06:32 AM
Too cool!  I'd even wear a snuggie like that one!  I seem to remember finding some fleece with USMC stuff on it.  I'll have to look again--even my hubby would wear one like that!  Cheesy

Nice work!  It's amazing to see what you can do with a limited amount of materials!  Cheesy
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Can i put embroidery floss in my machine? (stupid question #1354895067) on: April 03, 2009 07:05:14 PM
That's not a stupid question at all.  And you don't have dumb ideas.  In fact, that's a great idea, and I loved the response, too.  Because you asked the question, now I know how to use up some of the 900 skeins of embroidery floss I've accumulated!  We're all insane, but NOBODY has dumb ideas, only different ones!  Wink

I thought about getting a ruffler, but after doing a little research, I thought I would try a gathering foot, as it was a lot less expensive.  I looked for one at my local sewing stores, but there were none to be found, so I turned to ebay.  For under $10, including shipping, I had my gathering foot.  I love it!  Like Ellen, I posted about it on my blog, too!  Cheesy  I should have gotten one of these things years ago, rather than frustrating myself for so long!
5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: labels? on: April 03, 2009 06:44:08 PM
I ordered labels from Heirloom Woven Labels at http://www.heirloomlabels.com/info.html  I ordered online, and they called to work out the details of my order with them.  It took about three weeks for my labels to arrive, and I'm very happy with them.  I ordered the 1/2" labels in group 1, but since I wanted my website on it, they called to tell me that my label would be about a mile long, and that I should order from group 2 instead.  I took their advice, and 144 labels cost me $44.95.  The labels look great, and they're easy to sew in.  I highly recommend them.  They do a great job, and they're very reasonable, compared to some companies I researched.

Dang, wish I'd known about this while I was visiting my daughter in Minneapolis last week...ah well, guess I'll just have to go back soon! Wink

Nicely done! I agree with PurseStuff--you could probably go into business making these! Cheesy

These are really cute! I like how you did your handles. The rickrack is a nice touch!  Using it for the button loop is very clever.

I have lots of scraps, too, and it's fun to come up with ideas to use them up!  Grin

Hey, I live in Marquette, too!  Just moved here last October.  I love it! Grin

I love sewing, knitting, quilting, cats.  Just getting into bags, but they're so much fun to make.  I've got an etsy store set up, and an artfire store, too.  I plan to start listing stuff around 4/1, after I get back from visiting my daughter and grandsons in Minneapolis later this month.

I'm married, and my hubby is disabled, so I need to work at home.  I've been doing internet marketing with some success, but I'm a little burned out, so I'm taking a break.  I used to weave rag rugs and sold quite a few when I lived in TN, but had to give it up as it was too hard on my wrists and shoulders.  Sewing bags is much easier and more fun.  Who knows, maybe I can even earn a few bucks from my addiction!  Wink

Maybe us Yoopers can get together sometime!
