1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / RE: Lengthening Sleeves on: June 19, 2007 04:18:05 PM
I posted a thread here about lengthening sleeves by attaching extra fabric. I took my trip to the fabric store today and bought the fabric I wanted....

All went well until the part where I was supposed to sew the "cuffs" to the sleeve in order to finish my additions...  Shocked The sleeve was too small to fit around my sewing machine!!

Now what do I do?!! (Without turning to hand-sewing...)

Are there sewing machines with smaller areas?
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Lengthening Sleeves on: June 18, 2007 08:28:39 PM
What is the easiest way to lengthen sleeves by actually adding more fabric?

I am trying to lengthen the sleeves on a jacket that I have owned for a couple of years; everything still fits sans the sleeves (it seems that I have grown more than I think!)

Anyway, what fabric / method is the easist to do?

- Can post pictures if necessary to answer question.

THANKS! Smiley
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Creating new straps HELP! on: January 06, 2007 01:27:11 PM
So, a few thousand years ago (or so it seems) I made this awesome reversable purse with straps that were part of the fabric as a whole. I tried to decorate the straps and top of the bag with ribbon, but it turned out to be a disaster.
Basically, my question is whether or not there is an easy way to add straps.

I was thinking of cutting off the straps/ ribbon so that I have an open top. Maybe I could buy some webbing of some sort? and sew that onto the bag before I close up the top again, without ribbon.

4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest + Scrapbook on: August 02, 2006 09:57:26 PM
My story goes as such:

I am a senior in high school and I am entering AP Literature and Composition this fall semester as one of my courses. Over the summer such students as myself had projects assigned, one including a scrapbook for <i>One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest</i> by Ken Kesey.

My question is... what medium should I use for the scrapbook? (aka, last year for <i>Fast Food Nation</i> I made every page in the shape of a different fast food item (burger, fries, milkshake, happy meal toy, etc)

I need 6 pages, and even if I just use the front page as something creative and have each page be cut out in the outline of the title page it would work. (I don't want to just use a rectangular piece of paper, ya know?)

Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated! Smiley

THANKS! Smiley
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Belt for Nerd Day on: October 29, 2005 09:32:56 PM
So.. Monday is Halloween and also at our school the upper-level math classes do this thing called Nerd Day where people dress up as nerds and such and there is a voted nerd queen and king. So anyway! My idea was to make a belt with text on it as to display my geekiness and I want to know what is the best medium to use as a belt and/or to write on a belt.
