I am lovin' everyone's cards so far.  Here is one I got today from Casslyra.

Your card is very appropriate because I was laughing at all the dog costumes at Pet Smart right before I got home.  Thanks so much!

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Help with passport wallet - Adorn summer '07 on: May 20, 2007 11:58:38 AM
Hey, I am trying to make the passport wallet in the Adorn summer 07 issue.  I am wondering the actual dimensions of the paper pattern should be after they are blown up.  It says to blow them up 155% on a copier and I did that, but now that I have cut out all the fabric and startend sewing (!@#$?!!) I am realizing that the pieces are too small compaired with the two pieces that were not cut from the blown up patterns.  I figured I would just shrink those other pieces down but if I do that my passport won't fit into it.  Any help or suggestions please?  Thanks!

i liked her written info, and i have a much better understanding of how patterns 'work' now that i can see how you alter them.
what is frustrating me NO END right now (i'm trying to sew the shirt):
- no fabric yardage is suggested anywhere in the book.
- the patterns go from size 2 - 18 i think. but only in 4 sizes. So i am cutting a 'medium' which (it is unclear about the actual size of a medium) is somewhere between a 34.5" and 35.5" bust. and i'm 34". so i know i'm going to have to alter it  quite a lot.
i just dont understand why she doesn't have ALL the pattern sizes, only four imaginary non-standard sizes?!

Can some one explain the no yardage suggestions?  I want to make the skirt, but I have no idea how much fabric to buy, I am a total newbe when it comes to sewing.

Also-if you are ever looking for upholstery fabrics or tapestries, there is a great place in High Point called 1501 fabrics that has great prices on fabulous remnants.

Do you know where in High Point?  Is it near downtown?

I have to try to get to Walkertown, I like the sound of a 'secret room.'  Thanks for the info.
8  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / candy stripe problem on: February 23, 2007 07:56:17 PM
I have a problem trying to spin a two color candy stripe single.  Instead if it looking like the colors are nicely twisted around each other like a candy cane one color always tends to dominate and cover the other one up.  When I think I have the problem fixed it just happens again.How can I remendy this?  Thanks!
9  UNITED STATES / North Carolina / GOOD Fabric and ribbon sources? on: February 23, 2007 07:48:57 PM
Does anyone know where I could get some good quality fabrics?  Right now my main options is Hobby Lobby, and their quality just does not seem that good.  Are there any ribbon stores in NC?  I am tired of synthetics and I want to find real wool felt, suede, silk etc.  I live in Greensboro but I also frequent the Asheville and Raleigh area.  I heard there was a good fabric store in Walkertown but I am not sure where it is or how to get there.  Thanks!

I have not read this thread in a while so I will hopefully answer everything.

 I made the belt by making three tubes and pressing them flat.  One long one to go around my waist, one tube for the 'petals' of the bow and third smaller one to wrap around the bow and secure it to the belt part. I just handstitched the medium sized tube into a circle then pinched it in the middle and wrapped the smallest tube around the middle and stitched to the belt part.  I used velcro to keep it closed. 

I don't know if that helped at all, but I made it a long time ago and I think that was how I made it. I bought the top I was wearing it with from the Limited a few years ago.
