1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Discussion and Questions / Brother NV950 on: December 26, 2013 12:47:40 AM
Hi everyone - hope everyone's having a great Christmas  Grin

I'm wondering if the wonderful Craftster's here who use embroidery machines can help me out.

 Just recently I have been thinking about getting an embroidery machine (my first one ever) I won't be doing a huge amount of embroidery so don't want to spend lots of money - just personal use but love Urban Threads and really want to be able to do some of the awesome designs available there.

My local craft stare has a Brother NV 950 at half price and I was wondering if anyone uses one of these machines and how they find it. would it allow me to do want I want - i was wondering about the 100mm x100mm stitching area?? It has a USB and a Card slot for more Brother designs.

Any help or advice appreciated,

Kylie  Grin
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Parks and Recreation swap - anyone interested? on: May 18, 2012 12:57:44 AM

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Dinosaurs - upcycled dress from boys quilt cover on: January 13, 2012 10:26:36 PM
I finally did it - after seeing so many fantastic recons on here I bought a pattern - scoured the thrift stores - and made myself a dinosaur dress. I work with kids and every-time I wear it I hear whispers to parents 'Mummy that lady has dinosaurs on her dress'

I have made one other dress with this pattern and plan to make some more - I have a fairy bed-sheet set and some pirate material. Wish me luck

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Headband with bow - free pattern link on: January 13, 2012 10:19:25 PM
Headband with bow - I love wearing this - will be even happier when my hair gets a bit longer! It was from pattern linked below (although my bow I just realise is a little on the smaller side!!).



5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recycled earring holder on: January 13, 2012 10:11:31 PM
I got my hubby to make this for me (although possibly I could have even done it myself). It's just fly-screen from screen doors stapled onto a cheap canvas frame with canvas removed from dollar store. I am stoked as it holds my many ear decorations.  Smiley

Please ignore the ball of food dyed wool in the foreground - funny story the ball of wool was meant to turn out dark green!! Unfortunately all the colours separated  Undecided

Thanks for looking
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Domino pendants I made a while ago on: January 13, 2012 10:04:43 PM
I am so inspired by the stuff I see from all you crafty people on this site. So thank you to all those who shared their piccies of domino pendants. These are 2 I made some time ago (I tend to go through phases where I make a lot of one thing and then move on) These were just before the first Twilight movie and a friend and I where going to the premiere. The bead pendant was meant to be LaPush beach with all the different coloured pebbles. The second I found in a $2 comic book and really like the picture. The Dimensional Magic I used to coat them has gone a bit funny that one.

Thanks for looking

7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Freezer paper t-shirts for hubby for Christmas on: January 13, 2012 09:53:54 PM
Ahhh - bit nervous first ever post. I am sure I am going to do it all wrong but here goes.

These are some shirts I made for my hubby for Christmas (not as much of a hit as the Scaletrix slot car set but anyway). One is Safety Dance from "Men Without Hats" both of us can't dance but try our best when this song comes on - hilarious! And the other is a little in joke as he can sometimes get his words mixed up!

C&C welcome,

Thanks for looking
