They do indeed have some very cute prints! Thanks for the link!

Wow! I'm sure I speak for the rest when I say I'd love to see it modeled once you're done.
This is the kind of work I always wish I had the dedication and will-power to do, and I very much admire it in others!
23  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Simple Sushi Quilt! (several images) on: May 18, 2006 04:04:55 PM
Some time ago, I found a very fun little quarter flat bundle at Jo-Ann's, and just knew I had to have it. And thus was formed my sushi quilt!
The pattern I found in a magazine as a baby quilt, and I altered it somewhat to fit my own needs. It looks a little rumply and a tad askew in the pictures, but you'll get the idea,  Wink

The cat likes it too!

I wish I could find more of this fabric, it's definitely not your run of the mill print. I'll probably end up displaying it on a wall, but I'm not really sure yet.

Thanks for looking!
24  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Simplicity Destination India Patterns? on: May 18, 2006 01:08:38 PM
Yup, the Destination India patterns are a collaboration between Simplicity and Jo-Ann's, they did that, fabric and some trims (at least at my store) all under the same collection name. I bought 0589, a shirt pattern with several different cute views, though I have not used it yet. And I've bought some of the fabric as well, made an INCREDIBLY cute skirt with one of the gauze fabrics.

But I'd think even as a beginner, a tiered skirt should not pose too many challenges. It should be fairly straightforward to both cut and sew, you'll just be handling a fair amount of fabric. If you're worried about mixing up your tier pieces, label them! I know that always keeps me from reaching for my seam ripper too often,  Wink

Edited to say that at my Jo-Ann's, Destination India fabric is no longer on sale, some have gone to clearance, so I'm guessing the rest will soon follow. Clearance prices should be pretty decent.

Very cute, and very well done on drafting up your own pattern. I have some of that fabric myself, only it's destined for a quilt instead!

I would think that using a teflon-coated foot would make sewing with PVC easier, they are designed for use with precisely that sort of material. They are also easily found online, and probably in your local sewing machine shop.

Very cute! I especially like the red buttons, little detail that really draws the eye. The three colours you chose work very nicely together.
28  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: Crafty But Stupid: YOUR CRAFT RELATED INJURIES HERE! on: June 10, 2005 11:08:29 PM
While my injuries have never been too bad, they do tend to happen at the most inconvenient times.

See, I work at a fabric store, and I swear I'm telling people all day long, "Never give a clutz scissors" because I'm constantly sniping, slicing, and poking them into myself. Once, I was working the closing shift with just a manager, and we suddenly just got absolutely swamped with people. So, I'm cutting a length of eyelet for someone, and snip right into my fingers, deep and sideways - though somehow, no blood ended up on the eyelet,  Cheesy. Yay... Long story short, I ended up at the register checking people through with one hand, with my hand curled up, (no paper towels around), trying not to leak. The funny thing was that it actually made my evening better, go figure. Our rush ended just as the blood started seeping through the cracks of my fingers, and I ran back to find a Kleenex.

Man. I really can't believe they let me work with scissors all day long. It's just not smart.

29  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: printing patterns from fitzpatterns.com on: May 27, 2005 07:20:43 PM
You need an industrial printer to really get it printed well. She does have instructions somewhere on her site as to how to get it done. If you've got a Kinko's or other comparable printing shop within your area, you can always take the file there, and see if they've got a big enough printer.

Hope that helps!
30  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Re: Super duper high pattern prices! on: May 14, 2005 10:40:52 PM
I have already vowed to avoid working in another fabric store again.

It's just not smart, lol, not smart for me at all.
