1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / How to make festoon blinds? on: October 18, 2010 01:13:28 AM

I've done a few searches on Craftster and I can't find festoon blinds anywhere, so I'm wondering if there's a different name for them that I don't know!

I apologise if there is and I've missed a whole raft of how-tos! - but I'm looking for a simple tutorial to make this sort of blind, hopefully with pictures and not too wordy because I did find one online and I couldn't follow it at all Sad

Can anyone help? - or tell me if there's a different name for this type fo blind/curtain?

Thank you!!  Cheesy

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / If I cut pattern piece on the bias will it mess up the hang of the dress? on: July 22, 2009 11:02:55 AM

I'm cutting out a pattern for a dress and basically haven't got enough fabris. It's intended to be cut on the grain, but I have enough fabric to cut the front of the dress on the bias. If I do that, will it mess up the way the dress looks/behaves?

Thank you so much for reading!

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Vintage style wraparound apron help needed please!! x on: May 25, 2008 10:13:51 AM
I'd like to make (or buy!) and apron in this style, but I can't find a pattern anywhere!  Sad  It's probably a really simple shape, but it's beyond me, so I wondered if anyone knows of a pattern like this anywhere?  I'd be very grateful to anyone who could point me in the right direction!

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How do you hem a circle skirt?! on: October 25, 2007 04:53:33 AM
I can't get my head around how to hem a circle skirt, because the hem isn't straight, so there will be little extra bits in the turned-up bit, meaning the hem won't be a smooth line, but a series of little straight lines. Am I missing trick?! Is there a professional way to do it?

Thank you!  Kiss
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Does anyone know how to make a hat like this?? on: August 28, 2007 03:38:54 AM
I'm sorry I can't find a better picture, but I want to make a 1940s military side cap a bit like this for a costume, but I haven't got a clue how to start? Does anyone know how I could make one?  Huh

9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Is there anyone who is on/has done/knows anything about art access courses? on: August 26, 2007 04:22:06 PM
I'm thinking of applying for a part time art access course, and I was hoping to find someone who has been on one or knows about them, to ask some questions!

At school, I was encouraged to take academic subjects and not to view art classes seriously, but now I'm in my mid 30s and I think I'd like to learn more, but I'm not sure my skills are up to the task. I'd really appreciate if anyone would let me ask them a few questions!

Thnak you!  Smiley
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Fitted Knits spicy v neck tee back yarnover frustration! Please help! on: August 09, 2007 07:51:30 AM

I started knitting this top and I've had to rip it back 3 times because the back yarnovers just are not working for me. They end up uneven, no matter how I try to do it. Has anyone else had this problem?

Is there an error in the way the pattern is written? Or am I just stupid?

This is my latest attempt - the yarn overs on one side are much closer to the centre than the other side.

It's going to go out of the window if it's not careful.  Angry
