1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / what kind of material to make tennis skirt? on: August 31, 2006 01:04:44 PM
i am in no way familiar with sewing, but i was thinking about giving it a shot in making a tennis skirt. I was just wondering what sort of material is good for sweating and what they usually use--most of the skirts in stores are really expensive and it's kind of a pain to spend 50 bucks for one. :-D
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Change long shirt into tunic with scrunch/tie in the middle? on: March 25, 2006 01:20:37 PM
I went to the thrift shop today and got this really cool purple, green, and blue tie dyed shirt with bleached flowers and palm trees on it that is really long and baggy. I want to do that thing where in the middle it scrunches when you pull the strings and in the end i hope will create more figure than just a straight long tunic that will seem really big and..blah.

It's probably relatively easy but i'm just...challenged, (i'm not really experienced, i just sort of dive in and get confused,) so--if you have any idea, please reply.

Thank you  Grin
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / What should I do with magazine clippings? on: March 24, 2006 02:18:03 PM
I've been busy cutting out random images (or just ones i think are pretty) and words but i have no idea what i want to do with them. I was thinking about some crazy collage of some sort, but what to focus on--and what would be the point?

"Here's a big square of posterboard with a bunch of magazine cut outs on it. Happy Birthday."

Any ideas of maybe a practical-- but fun--gift?

Thank you  Grin
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Question about that resizing jeans tutorial on: June 20, 2005 12:08:28 PM
I'm a little confused on the last part of that resizing the jeans tutorial, where you rip up the 5 inch part of the side seam and tuck the extra jean waist into it.

If someone can explain to me exactly how you tuck it in and how you sew it back up--that'd be great. I might sound like an idiot, but it's just not clicking.   
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / How would i make this purse from delias? on: May 26, 2005 01:57:05 PM

6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Does this stencil mean anything? on: May 15, 2005 02:25:45 PM
Hey im just wondering if this stencil really--meant anything? Like if it was a bands' image/symbol, or something of that sort? It looks sort of cool, and i wanted to use it--but not if it meant something i didnt know about.


7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Messenger bag questions. please help. :-( on: April 16, 2005 06:26:17 PM
I just finished a messenger bag w/ gussetts...or...w/e they're called, lol. But i'm not fully satisfied. I'm still going to carry it around school because i hate throwing away things before i actually use them--but i just have some questions because i desperately want to make a new one.

- When you pull the bag through the whole in the lining at the last step, how do you patch it up so that the seams are almost invisible? I don't think theres a way it can actually be inside like all the others, but tricks to making it look nice would be appreciated. Mine is very visible and i'm very frustrated with it.  Cry

- My lining is always too big for the bag, even though i cut it exactly the same size as the exterior fabric. Should i make it like an inch smaller or something?

Thanks for reading this. Answer if you can.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Resizing zip-up hoodie? directions anyone? on: April 12, 2005 06:35:13 AM
How would i resize a huge zip up hoodie? I have this blue one that i want to make smaller and maybe put a stencil on, but i have no clue how to do it. If i could get a tutorial or something that'd be awesome.

9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Neec Help with School project! Pleaseeeee :-( on: April 06, 2005 01:16:24 PM
I need to come up with a project based on--shoes--that reflects my personality. I have absolutely no idea what to do...because i don't want to spend a ton of money on the supplies. (Theres no thrift stores near me either) In case anyones still confused by the actual idea...my class is reading speak and in the book one of the teachers tells the students to pick a piece of paper out of a hat and what ever word is on there is going to be their project for the whole year--they need to shape it and make it reflect themselves. OUr teacher did the same thing for us...except it's due in less than a week (I'm a huge procrasinator) Anyway, this may be sort of--cheating, if that's wut u call it, but i just need a basic idea--and i'll mix it around with some other things. Please reply!! thanks  Smiley
