11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / cute free patterns for headbands and baby booties... on: June 13, 2006 11:45:49 AM
i don't know if this has already been posted (i ran a search under the designer's name and didn't see anything), but these free patterns for quick fabric headbands and baby booties are adorable...

(look in the sidebar on the right, under "free patterns")
12  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Need a Serger for Knits? on: June 10, 2006 09:08:02 AM
A question from a beginner:  Is a serger necessary for sewing knit fabrics?  I thought I'd try some simple Ts, but don't have a serger and was wondering if a regular machine would cut it.

Thank you!

Hey all,

Just some pics of my first projects, mostly easy skirts Wink.  Next I'm going to tackle a couple of tops and some dresses...


I'm going to post this in the discussion forum, too, but was wondering:  is a serger necessary for sewing knit fabrics?  I thought I'd try some simple Ts, but don't have a serger, and (as you can see) am a beginner.  Thanks!
14  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / This Looks Like It Should Be Simple (Toddler/Girl's Wrap Dress) on: May 07, 2006 03:44:16 AM
I think this is so cute, and it looks like it could be easy to make.  Does anyone have any ideas or know of any similar patterns that I could modify?  Thank you!

15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / another embarrassing skirt question on: April 24, 2006 03:17:13 PM
OK, so I'm a complete pattern 'drafting' novice!  I made a simple a line skirt with an elastic waistband out of a cotton blend that had some stretch -- came out great.  Then I used the same pattern to make another cotton skirt, but I forgot that the fabric (100% cotton) didn't have the stretch to it that the first one did.  So, I can't get it over my hips! Undecided  I am thinking that I will have to try putting in a zipper to make it work, but I'm wondering how I would do the calculations for the next time around.  How do I adjust my pattern so that the waist will both fit and get over my hips for a cotton (or other woven material, non-stretchy) basic a-line skirt?  I hope that makes sense!  Thank you.

16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / skirt hems -- why do i always mess this part up? on: April 09, 2006 04:29:35 AM
hey all,

i've been making some very simple a-line skirts and whenever i get to the hem,  it's longer at the side seams than the rest of the bottom.  i don't know if that's clear...do i need to cut the bottoms on a curve instead of straight?  not sure what i keep doing wrong -- any help would be appreciated.  thank you!
17  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Best craft felt and best adhesive for felt? on: January 28, 2006 12:05:18 PM

I've been fooling around with different things and was wondering what people thought were the best:

1) adhesives for felt (both 100% wool and craft/blends)
2) craft (not all-wool, but not that really thin supercheap kind) felt

thanks! Smiley
