1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / cotton and poly webbing on: February 06, 2007 01:19:20 PM
Does anyone know of a retailer (online or in the Chicago area) that has a good supply of webbing /strapping, preferably cotton? I found a few online but they usually have limited colors.

i don't know you but i adore you. thanks for your help! it's actually a man's suit that i'm lengthening, so hopefully there's a good amount of fabric in the hem. i'll be working on it tonight, wish me luck.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / HELP! Advice on alterations... on: March 16, 2005 11:17:06 AM
Hi everyone, it's been so long since I posted here but I need some help from you crafty crafters, specifically those who sew. I was wondering if anyone knows the proper technique of lengthening/letting out a suit sleeve? I think I might be able to figure it out but I'd love some advice from people who have actually done it (or something similar) before.
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Re: drawing fluid method=oh nooooooo!!!!! on: September 28, 2004 10:58:38 AM
i think your problem may be that you're overapplying the screen filler (SF). you should limit it to one pass over the drawing fluid (DF) with the filler, so that the DF doesn't dissolve. another problem may be that you're using too thin a layer of DF. so, practice getting one good layer of SF over the DF without having to go over it again and don't use too thin a layer of DF. here's a tip: it's important to only have one layer of SF in the areas where your image is. so you can just get that covered with your one pass and then if there are a lot of uncovered areas left in the sides (without DF in them), use a small piece of stiff cardboard or something similar to spread the excess SF on the screen towards the edges to fill it in. did that all make sense? i guess overall what's important is a lot of practice and trial and error.

oops...having been checking back here for a while..but thanks so much for all the kind compliments. i did make up the pattern, and though it took more planning out than i expected, it is a pretty simple concept (just a bunch of rectangles!).

lovehandcrafts, i'd love to try and help you with your little problem but i'll have to wait til i get on a less crappy computer because i can't really see what's going on in the pictures on this thing. it looks like you can flip it inside out and sew close to the edge to avoid the embroidered initials. am i wrong? i can't really tell..

hmm...the tweed that i used in that bag was only about 4 bucks a yard, but i think that was a lucky find! i went back to get more and couldn't find any... i think it can get pricey, depending on the quality. i'd guess around $6-8 per yard average.

i am definitely going to try to sign up for the renegade craft fair this year. i'm upset i missed out last year. i also missed out on depart-ment, but there will be one coming around again soon!

oops haven't checked out this post in a while. phoebe, there's a lined messenger bag tutorial somewhere on the craftster forums... the bag seen in this post is actually made before i knew how to do that. (it definitely was not as sturdy as it could have been) i made a similar bag after seeing jordy's lined square bottomed bag tutorial, and it came out much better!

the furry fabric came from jo-ann fabrics...they have it in a lot of different colors!
