1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Infinity Dress Questions on: February 10, 2010 04:59:03 PM
Hi all! I'm a fairly new sewer (I've made a quilt, duvet cover, a few easy gathered skirts with knit waistbands, and some other random things!). I recently came across the infinity dress tutorial, ran out and bought some cheap fabric (cotton knit) and quickly made one up! LOVE IT.

I'm Maid of Honor in a wedding this fall, and am helping the bride pick out the maids' dresses. She actually really likes the infinity dress (which is hysterical, because out of the 5 million dresses she's had me try on, it's the only one she likes...). I really think I could make these very easily for the four of us.

My questions are:

1.) Would you recommend matte jersey, or will it roll? What other fabrics would work (which would be the best??)

2.) The tutorial I used didn't have any hems put in on the edges (which makes sense, since you'd see them). So...how do the edges get finished?

Thanks for any help!!!!

Does anyone have one? I'm ready to upgrade from my first machine. I'm esp. interested in decorative stitches, so this looks perfect...
3  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / New to Crafting in general!!! on: October 05, 2009 06:55:05 AM
Much to my crafty mother's chagrin, I have not really ever been into crafting. It's not that I haven't tried...I've crocheted, knitted, quilted, scrapbooked, digital scrapbooked, made jewelry...none of it stuck. But I've really needed a creative outlet...

A few weeks ago, I started making Scrabble Tile Pendants as a way to calm my nerves after work. I love the small detail of it, the cutting, the gluing, the almost immediate satisfaction of having a completed piece in one evening...but I needed more. It was then that I discovered ATCs on this site. I lurked and stalked, and now I'm ready to come out of lurking and join in!

I am in love. I spent yesterday buying beautiful papers and stamps, today printing off vintage images, and all last night dreaming about the beautiful cards I would start making tonight (I woke up no less than 3 times last night from dreams of paper and ATCs....).

So, tonight I'll be starting - and I'm DYING to start swapping (although I guess I have to get more posts before I can join a swap...)...

So, here I am, new crafter! Can't wait to be a part of this community of creative minds!
