1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Attaching a pendant on: October 22, 2009 07:47:18 PM
This is probably an incredibly stupid question, but I've never made a piece of jewelry in my life, so...
My mother bought me a few pendants from Michael's recently, one of them being this one:
Three of them have two rings on the top to connect to the chain, like in the picture above.  My question is, how do you put them on the chain?  My assumption is the chain should be coming off of the rings on the pendant something like the first necklace in this post:
Unfortunately, I'm not quite sure how to do that.  :/

I hope that makes sense. (And is on the right board...)  Sorry if I sound like a complete idiot Smiley, I'm completely illiterate when it comes to jewelry-making terminology.

2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Help! Turning stuffies without breaking through the seams! on: September 20, 2009 12:16:51 PM
Whenever I attempt to turn a stuffie that I've handsewn, my stitching just doesn't hold up.  The seam will just pop through my stitching, leaving a hole that I have to re-sew closed.   I sew my stuffies with a back stitch, and I believe that I pull it taut, not too tight...but it just never holds up.
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.   Undecided

Has anyone else had this problem?

My wallet was falling apart, so I made this cute little wallet out of some scrap fabric that I just adore.

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / WoW Gnome Doll on: September 06, 2009 01:22:22 PM
My fiance plays World of Warcraft, and while he was out of town for a few days, I whipped up this little doll of his character for him, using this tutorial:

I pretty much had to wing it on her outfit and face, as I couldn't see a picture of her without him knowing I was up to something!

I think she turned out quite well, though.   Grin
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Making a WoW gnome doll, need help! on: September 03, 2009 11:14:08 AM
My fiance plays a little gnome on World of Warcraft, and I thought of surprising him with a little doll of his character.  This will be my first doll, and I'm not sure what type of pattern would be good to use for a gnome.  I've searched the internet, but can't find anything that I find close and is simple enough for me to sew.
Any ideas?

Thank you!
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Yo-Yo Lampshade on: August 13, 2009 05:49:29 PM
I found an old lampshade at my parents house, and it just screamed "I need to be beautified!".
Unfortunately, I couldn't get the dirt stains out.
But, I got the idea for a yo-yo lamp shade in '100 Decorating Ideas' magazine, and this is my spin on it:

Critiques are welcome!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 50's style apron on: August 08, 2009 01:32:18 PM
I completed my first apron today, using this tutorial:

I ended up having a bit of difficulty attaching the straps, but I think it came out quite lovely.

Thanks for looking! Smiley
8  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Hidden Stitch - I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. on: August 05, 2009 09:39:43 PM
I've been making plushies lately, and I'm having trouble with the hidden stitch to sew them closed after stuffing/sewing on noses/etc.; I end up bunching my fabric quite badly.
Am I doing something wrong to make it bunch? :/
9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Plushie/Stuffie Tutorials And Patterns on: July 25, 2009 04:28:22 PM
I've been searching for a simple plushie pattern and/or tutorial for a bear for a few days now.
Any ideas where one can be found?

Thanks! Smiley
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / My very first pillow. :) on: July 23, 2009 03:54:37 PM
And my very first post to Craftster, as well.  Grin

I recently picked up sewing again, after only a few months of it 5 years ago.
My first creation is this pillow:


I quite like it, although I think I probably could have done better.
My darling stitched the flower on for me, though, as I haven't quite mastered that yet.

Comments/critiques welcome!
