1  Ribbon fabric with D-rings sewn in in What the heck can I do with THIS? by mishti on: May 11, 2007 04:59:33 PM
Yes.  They came in a sealed plastic bag; I thought they were real fabric, only $2.48 at the local Thrift Mart!   Roll Eyes

A bunch are about 2" wide, about 3' long.  In this size I have 3 safety orange, 1 blue with white polka dots, 2 aqua, 3 baby pink with white polka dots.  The others are about as long (though one is shorter), but about a little under an inch wide.  These are: 4 red with white polka dots, 3 satiny green.  One of the satiny green has buttons sewn on in regular intervals, all differently colored. 
The last detail makes me think that this was someone else's unfinished craft project.   Undecided  The D rings are all the good kind, welded at the join.  I've already thought of purse handles and belts.  I guess if nothing else I have 32 nice D rings.

2  Help with design idea in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by mishti on: April 25, 2007 08:01:08 PM
I bought some thrift chairs and I'm going to cover the seats with this fabric.  

I have this idea for my kitchen but I can't exactly think of how to explain it.  I was thinking French Country, without the Country part.  On Trading Spaces I think it was the guy with the long black ponytail (Edward?) who did a kitchen like a french bistro.  I'm thinking something like that, only more...urban.  Or modern.  Or contemporary, or something.  Embarrassed

Does anyone know what on earth I'm trying to say?

hey, I don't know how to put together a gusset bag; honestly that one still confuses me.  I am going to attempt it one day, but I don't know what day that will be.   Cheesy  However, I have made something similar to a Jordy Bag, and I did up a little tutorial in paint.  I hope this works for you!  You could also do this with paper just to test it out, and use some cheap thread (not your *good* thread) and a needle to "sew" the pieces together. 

I hope you can see it in the thread, but if you can't, go here and you can see it fine.

Also, I forgot to add in the image, after you sew any seam, *press it open*!!!  from both sides.  You want to press the seam open, and have it open when you sew the perpendicular-to-the-side-seam seam.  It will make everything look so much better and more professional, and it will make the project much easier to finish, like when sewing in the lining or when sewing the topstitching.  I promise.  I have a bag where I cut everything wonky and my stitching is uneven like I was drunk when I sewed, but dammit, the edge on the outside pocket is pressed and measured to perfection, and that part looks *great*!!

So, pm me if you still have questions, and maybe I could take pictures with a paper tutorial, or I could test out the camcorder function on my phone....gee, that would be darn fun!  hee.  :-)

5  Re: Baby items knit-a-long? in Knitalongs by mishti on: November 28, 2006 09:50:36 AM
Yes, me too!  I have a new cousin, born 11-08-06, and some girls at work are pregnant and/or have 1 or more toddlers.

So, I finished a pair of Bev's booties! 

.....aaaand, apparently I've exceeded a limit somewhere.  If you can't see them, you can see them here.

Oh yeah, how long do you think she'll be able to wear them?  They turned out about 4" long and 4" around the foot part.

6  first knitted finished object! in Knitting: Completed Projects by mishti on: November 16, 2006 10:06:17 AM
and, it's a potholder.  How boring right?  At least it's in moss stitch which is SO beautiful and the yarn makes me want popcorn.  I used sugar and cream.

7  24 hour baby blanket and chic on the halfshell bag in Crochet: Completed Projects by mishti on: October 22, 2006 02:53:34 PM

I can gift the blanket to the infant now that I have photos.  yay!!  How exciting it will be to see her mom's face. 

as for the bag, what kind of closure should I use, if any?  It just kinda flops open when you pick it up by the handle.

9  "Jordy" clutches - zips and snaps - w/pics in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by mishti on: April 26, 2005 05:40:13 PM
As for the snaps: I know!   Cheesy I was talking to my mom on the phone while I was putting them in and she heard my joy when I made them line up.  And, I forgot to leave a turning opening in the lining bottom, so I had to leave one in the front.  I had to be extra perfect with my slipstitching.  You wouldn't even be able to tell unless you were looking really closely for good stitching, or unless I told you.   I think it's going to be a tampon holder.  They'll be so much more inconspicuous in a bright blue snap-purse.   

I just finished another one, and it's in the same photo album. 

This is my first zipper insertion, so be kind  Wink

The front:

And the lining with my cell phone for perspective:

Please give me feedback! Smiley  I have fair amount of the flower fabric & similar fabric left, and I want to see what people think of it.
