1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Ironing Cellophane? on: June 29, 2007 12:02:37 PM

If you iron celophane will it fuse together, and possibly to a very lightweight silk fabric... even temporarily (its for "art" and will be secured in a secondary way. also washability isn't a concern.)

or is it just the wrong kind of plastic?  if so.. any transparent lightweight glue that you'd recommend?

Many Thanks!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Tank top lengthening??? on: June 18, 2004 07:59:43 AM
So, I got a bunch of tank tops at Old navy which I loved until the got shrunk in the wash, not the width way, but lengthwise.... and I don't have an interest in baring my middrift.  Normally I'd just insert a piece in the shoulder to drop it down,  but they are cut low enough for serious cleavage flashing, and the armpits would fall into the "80's men's athletic tank" style, which is also not a desired plan. 

Does anyone have any ideas for re-constructing these?  I have about 8 of the same tank tops, so some can be sacrifieced to the greater wardrobe.  They are stretchy, cotton, ribbed, and mostly striped fabric. I don't have a serger, so any stitch recommendations to that I don't tear out my hard work while wearing would also be helpful. Huh
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Industrial Snaps on: March 19, 2004 11:56:37 AM
I am looking for an alternative to the 'hammer/tap and die' indutrial snap setting method.  I've had nothing but smooshed snaps, and ineffective snaps, and just plain old bad luck.  I also need to do alot of them...  so hammering, will probably annoy my housemates.

I'd love to know if anyone knows of or has found a light commercial snap setter? or even one of those vice-grip-like snap setters, for industrial/heavy duty snaps.

Any hints, tricks, tips, ideas?
