1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: An amazingly yellow dahlia for winter use on: July 04, 2010 09:44:35 AM
Since it is 100% wool it should dye fairly easily. You should test dye a piece of yarn before trying the whole garment.
Congratulations on a knit well done!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: How do I make this ruffle? on: January 28, 2010 08:26:50 AM
yes! good advice, GRABthatUKE.
However, notice that the ruffles do not end in the center front, they continue to the bottom layer.
Here are some poorly drawn pictures that may help (not to scale):
This is what each of the two pieces attached to the front should look like.

The red line is the approximate attachment line for each of the front pieces. You should pin it and try it on before sewing to the shirt so you can easily make adjustments.

I hope this helps. Happy Crafting!

Does anyone know where I might find some cute recipe cards? I've been having the hardest time trying to find them and I don't have a printer to get them from the internet.

I'm definitely up for this swap! My family makes the best not-so-secret candy around Christmas every year.

Crafting away! I have more or less all of my materials so far, I just wonder how I'm going to fit it all in the can...
7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Thinking about getting a small sewing machine for Christmas... on: November 18, 2009 10:07:18 AM
I used to work at Hancock Fabrics and we sold those mini machines. Every single one we sold came back broken.
I'd invest in a larger machine, it may take up more space but it'll actually work.
Happy sewing!

If you're going to spend the time embroidering you might want to spend the extra money for a couple yards of wool felt, it is washable if you're really careful (on cold only!) and it feels a million times nicer than polyester craft felt.

all of these items so far are awesome!
I just have a comment on chalk.
The pencils drive me up the wall because they break so easily, the tailor's chalk dulls so quickly and sharpening them can be a pain.
My shop recently adopted a wonderful chalking notion.
It's called the chako liner by clover and it kinda looks like a tube of lipstick. It comes in blue, yellow, pink, and white and there are chalk refills which are pretty inexpensive considering how long they last. The chalk is a loose powder and the chako liner has a little wheel that distributes the chalk when you run it over the fabric. AND since it is just a loose chalk line it doesn't stain your fabric, you just brush/wash it off.
I should stop babbling, but I do love this chalk!
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: How hard would it be to recreate this dress? on: November 12, 2009 07:09:22 PM
The weaving in the back will be challenging. I'd say that's an advanced level dress.
Good luck!
