1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Discussion and Questions / help me!! on: January 18, 2014 01:41:27 PM
this is a total long shot....... but..... i'm trying to find a company i've seen on the internet at some point but can't for the life of me find it now, they make elaborate embroidered clothes, i have a mental image of a cream dress i saw on there covered in vintage lace and beads, think the contents of an amazing craft room all thrown on to one amazing item of clothing, think they did some like tweedy embroidered coats too, any ideas anyone?? i'd be eternally grateful xx
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Dice bag tester on: July 08, 2012 12:46:16 PM
the trick way i was shown how to make round bags like that is to cut your straight pieces a little too long initially, sew them from flat with your circle on top, and sew them almost all the way round before stopping and sewing your side seam to make it the perfect size to fit on your curve, it's a bit of a faff but it works every time and you don't need even one pin, not sure if that makes sense in words, i might have to draw a picture lol x
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: polymer clay and printed paper pendants on: April 08, 2012 02:42:23 PM
i think they actually look really nice, the only thing i might suggest would be have you tried doing the main face and letting it dry off a bit before you try trimming the edges and turning them over, then you have less soft bits that you're putting under pressure all at once, which might give it less chance of ripping, i would possibly do a solid piece to go over the back too to cover your turns, but they look lovely, plus it's a great way to use up any old scraps of clay!! lovely and thrifty too xx

yours is nicer, you picked a more expensive looking jewel, i love seeing things people have copied for much less and better, i spend so much time in shops thinking "i could make that myself better" and never get around to it!! :-)

8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / sweetie bouquet for my sweetie!! on: February 08, 2011 01:37:12 PM
just a quickie, was struggling for things to buy for the boyf for valentines day, i'd seen some chocolate bouquets online, but being incredibly poor, and also thinking i could make a nicer one i decided to have a crack at it myself,
 so i bought some bits and bobs, and painted a bajillion skewers red, and got to work with the hot glue gun,
pretty chuffed with how it's turned out, it's all chocolates except the  big pink sparkly hearts, so he should yum it up,

thanks for looking, let me know what you think  Smiley
