1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Border Print Skirt on: March 26, 2011 08:18:40 PM
I have about three yards of a border print fabric that I'd like to make a skirt out of but I have two questions.

First, If I use the border (which runs along the selvage) as the bottom, do I have to hem it? There isn't much room at the bottom for a hem and a selvage won't ravel, right?

Second, would it be better to gather or pleat the top? Does it matter?

If you know anything about border prints, I'd be grateful if you shared it with me :-)
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / "Pets" on: February 03, 2011 12:45:44 PM
I had an empty cage that I wanted to put a snail in but I couldn't find a snail so instead I made little felt pets. I currently have two little felt peeps and and a teeny kitty. Their home is decorated for winter with snow and a Christmas tree. I want to make a little baby peep too so I can have a whole peep family.

Here's a picture from the front with a spool of thread for scale.

Here's another from the side so you can see the kitty and tree better.
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / College Study Blanket on: February 03, 2011 11:36:56 AM
My favorite lounge to study in is perfect, except when someone opens the door and the winter wind blows in. I needed a little blanket or something but I didn't have one. Luckily I had plenty of time to make one over winter break. I didn't really know what I wanted it to look like so I went to the fabric store and looked around. I bought the blue and green squares and brought them home to play with but decided that I didn't have anything quite right to go with them. I went back to the store and bought the middle fabric (which is sparkly!) and some brown bubble dot minkee for the back.  There's no batting inside so that it would be small enough to shove in my bag with my books but it's warm enough with just the minkee. The brown thing in the middle is my school's logo and it's made of  minkee scraps.

(Please excuse the wrinkles, it had been all folded up and I did't want to melt the minkee by ironing it)
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Boring corkboard on: May 06, 2010 04:33:48 PM
I have a plain, 16.5 inch, round corkboard. It was on sale and I knew i could make something wonderful for my dorm next year with it but I'm not quite sure what. I still want it to be a pinable message board but I have to decorate it somehow. My school colors will be scarlet and black and I'd like it have it school spirit themed. It won't match my the colors in my room and doesn't have to go. I was wondering if anyone here had any creative ideas to make it the best corkboard ever instead of just a sad looking circle. The only think i could think of was covering it in fabric, but I'd prefer something a bit more interesting.
