1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Copyright- fabric/patterns on: March 31, 2005 02:44:09 PM
Does anyone know of copyright issues when using Michael Miller, Alexander Henry, Robert Kaufman, etc. fabrics to create items for sale??  Also, is it illegal to take say a Simplicity pattern, make something and sell it???

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / interfacing problem-- HELP! on: March 15, 2005 07:33:29 PM
I am working on some bags using cotton fabric.  To practice the bags I've been using some fabric I got at Joann's for $1.99.  I've made a bag and a hat.  First, the bag got little bubbles from the interfacing.  I tried to pay more attention to how I treated the fabric and interfacing when I made the hat.  I soaked the interfacing in hot water, drip dried, followed directions for applying:  press, don't iron;  lay a damp cloth on top while pressing.  Is it just that the interfacing stinks or is it me??  What interfacing do you use for purses/bags?   I'm looking for something to be pretty stiff for tote bags, etc.  I have been using Pellon Craft fuse and Shirt tailor.  The shirt tailor works pretty well, but the craft fuse is bubbling once the item gets any use.  Help!!!!  Is it me or the type of interfacing???

I have some that I put it on both the lining and outside and others that I only put it on the outside.  I think it depends how stiff you want the bag to be and what type of bag it is.  For the totes I make I put interfacing on both, for a little jordy type bag I only put it on the outside.

Ooooooo... I love those pillowcase dresses!  I may have my daughter's entire summer wardrobe from Goodwill that way!  Thanks for posting those links!

I found some great recipes on recipezaar.com.  Specifically, the ratatouille http://www.recipezaar.com/recipe/getrecipe.zsp?id=52757  and the thick and chunky tomato sauce with veggies (which I also added veggie "burger" crumbles to) http://www.recipezaar.com/mycookbook/getrecipe.zsp?id=101240.

I just got "Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker" out of the library... so far the recipes are great!  And, there are a lot of ethnic ones.  I made Vegetable Curry tonight and it was really good.

I agree with the Moosewood comments... My "Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites" has a broken binding from use.  The recipes are all good for you and have amazing flavor.  My personal faves from it... Portabello Mushroom Stuffed Zuchinis, Tamale Pie, and great fish recipes.  The library here has it.  You could check it out before you purchase.  I also found it at half.com last year for $6 brand new.

This is my all-time favorite brownie recipe.  They are majorly rich... but I don't ever get too much chocolate!

I'm working on one of these right now.  I'll post a pic when it's finished.  So far, so good...

That helps!  I was trying to make it more difficult by finding marbly/weathered tile and then putting the quotes on that.  But, it looks like you just printed it on paper and then made that look weathered.  Have I got it now???

 Huh  I guess what I'm having trouble figuring out is how you got the "k" and the quote onto the coaster.  Did make a stencil for the "k"?  Did you print it out on to something and then glue it on to the coaster and then paint over it?  I'm wanting to do a bunch of coasters for MIL with a variety of quotes.  I was trying to figure out how to get them on without doing it by hand... i.e. printing onto transparency and laying that on the coaster, etc.  Like I said, total newbie-- obviously need help.
