1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / HELP HELP HELP - Velco on: October 04, 2005 07:53:51 AM
How in the heck do you sew through it?

I purchased the stick on thinking it would hold on fabric, NOT Embarrassed Anyhoo, I attempted to sew it into place only to become frustrated by the thread breaking at the needle and the needle becoming sticky.

WHAT AM I MISSING HERE? I am an experienced sewer who never used it and I purchased it by the yard, so instructs were not available.

I gave it to her without the scarf belt, I just wanted to see what it looked like. I was trying to sew a vinyl trim on the denim handles but couldnt. Vinyl is not easy to sew through Sad unless material is ontop or your sewing on the wrong side. Has anyone had problems with vinyl, how do you sew through it.

Anyhoo, she loved it and Im happy Smiley. I welcome ally comments.

Im very proud of my daughter. She is 15, and a sophmore this year. Nicole has been creative/crafty since the begining of her time. I am proud to say that she is truly gifted and I pray that she continues on. Art/jewlery making/sketching/reconstructing clothes etc. She reminds me of me when I was her age. she doesnt know I pulled her clothes out this morning and took shots-just showing off my baby.

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / 2 new messager bags Im so happy - please take a peak on: September 12, 2005 05:37:41 AM
the khaki handled one was made for my daughter and the other for me. when i saw this same material
in the Rag Shop after seeing it on this site used for someones bags i was so excited. these bags were a challend for me because of the stiffness of the fabric.
