3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / HELP! New Look 6705 on: September 06, 2008 01:21:33 PM
I am having trouble understanding the cutting out part of this pattern. I am doing view D, looking at the Cutting Layouts. I understand most of it, but pattern piece 2 has a star beside it and in the notes it says the star means: "Cut out all pieces except pieces that extend beyond folded fabric, then open out fabric and on RIGHT side of fabric, cut in positions as shown."

1. Am I supposed to be cutting on the wrong side of the fabric with all the other pieces to begin with?
2. Why is piece 2 in a different place in the 2nd picture?
3. where is all this extra fabric coming from? In the first picture, almost all of the fabric is covered by pattern pieces except for a thin strip above 14.
4. The line which goes through piece 2 in the 2nd picture -- is that the edge of the fabric? I see that there are two folds...

I haven't started cutting anything yet, because I'm afraid I'm not seeing it right.

4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Old Birthday/Christmas cards on: August 26, 2008 07:17:19 PM
Hi, I think this is my first time posting in this forum. I'm usually skulking around the sewing pages. But I have found myself drowning in paper instead of fabric for once. So here goes:

For some reason, when I was younger I thought it was really really rude to throw away cards that people gave me, like it would hurt their feelings. So I kept them in a shoebox. Then I started keeping cards because I began to think (as many of us do about odds and ends) "Wow, maybe I could do something with these some day..." So over the years I collected cards and now have an overflowing shoebox plus a gallon ziplock bag full of cards -- birthday cards, Christmas cards, maybe a few easter cards, some "thinking of you" cards, and lots of wedding cards.

So what can I do with all of these cards? I do scrapbook, and at first I thought maybe I could cut some of them up and use pictures from them in scrapbooking, but it just seems after so much effort collecting them and lugging them from state to state in my various moves that there might be a huge project these cards would be worthy of. Any suggestions?

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / sleeveless shirt on: May 23, 2008 12:11:57 PM
Made this sleeveless shirt based on this one (which includes a tutorial on page 2): https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=246237.10

It's not perfect, but it has been a learning experience at least, and I'm satisfied with how it turned out. I'm going to add a coral/pink ribbon under the bust, but I have to get some matching thread.  Roll Eyes

This first picture makes it look a little weird, but it's the way I'm standing. Also, sorry for any blurriness. (DH took the pics  Wink )

Very cute! I've been searching all day for something to do with some fabric I bought a couple weeks ago. Thanks for putting up the tutorial!
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Fabric for top.. but what style? on: May 21, 2008 01:54:46 PM
I bought some fabric a couple of weeks ago and it's been sitting around waiting for me to do something with it. I've looked through posts on here and patterns elsewhere for ideas. I want to make a top, but I can't find any type of style I like. The material has kind of a silky feeling but is a little thin, so I'll have to put a lining in it. Here's what it looks like:
