1  CLOTHING / Clothing Sewalongs / Re: Sew Along: "Sew What! Skirts" on: May 06, 2007 01:11:24 PM
I use masking tape when I put in zippers. I tear a 1 x 3 strip in half so I have (2) 1/2"x3" strips, then I place them perpendicular to the zipper. That way, when I sew over the tape I only have to pull tape away from about 3 stitches when I'm done.

I'm off to the sewing room, photographic evidence soon-ish

I <3 this book!

I made the tunic, twice.  I never felt comfortable wearing it. So I showed it to my friends and they said "no, you can't wear that" it just plain wasn't flattering on me. Made me look like a pregnant pilgrim with that inlay, oh well... better luck next time.

Here's the card that I scanned for Myrnaloy. Her movie is called Fitzcarraldo.  It's a foreign film so I only saw the trailer for it but it looked so goood.  I think I caught the story line cuz Myrna says she lurves it.

its the coolest card ever! Teh husband even likes it too.

So, the idea behind Fitzcarraldo is that there's this guy who wants to build an opera house in the jungle of Peru (brazil?). But he needs the money right? There's this untapped rubber tree plantation that he gets the rights to, but getting there is impossible. He has to get this steam ship, go down this river, stop at a certain point and haul the boat OVER a mountain. Which takes forever, 'cause its about 1906 and he has to use all these aborginees to get it done. It really shows what one man will do for his dream.

The thing is, the director really DID get this boat pulled over a mountain.

My husband and I want to make a shot-for-shot remake. We're going to get a bunch of hipsters to pull our toyota corolla over Mount Tabor (pretty much: downtown portland). We're going to call it: Fitzcarolla

I can't believe no one else is interested in this. Bob Dylan is a genius, doesn't everyone love him? And besides, I got tons of awesome feedback on Craftster when I posted my BD shirt...  Huh

where's your bob dylan shirt at?

'dishes are done man' Hubs and I say that often when the dishwasher finishes.

I'm right on top of that, Rose!

my sister got it made for me at one of those carts in the mall. They usually sell engraved license plate holdres (ask me about my grandkids! etc) and pictures of cartoon characters peeing on things.

i love it
