1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / scrubs.. help! on: June 28, 2006 10:48:31 AM
I just started dental assisting school [booooo!!!]. And I get to wear scrubs to school [yayyy!!!!!]
But I can only wear certain scrubs from a certain place ordered through the school. Well I got my tops today, and  I'm in a weird situation. I'd take a pic if I could, but the tops are in the washing machine.
Anyway. The sides (left, right, under the sleeves, front, back) are really loose & baggy, but the seams around the arm holes & bottom of the tops are really tight! It's also tight around the top of the shirts (like when I stretch my arms out in front of me) And I do not have a big chest!
I dont know what to do. Is there ANY alteration I can do?! I dont have time to send out for more scrubs!!!

Sorry about the bad quality pics.. My digital camera ran out of batteries & I dunno what kind it takes, LOL! So, I had to use my phone instead. The whale one doesnt have a ring on it yet

3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Etsy Questions (Popular? Similar Sites?) on: June 20, 2006 09:26:46 PM
I was thinking about selling some of my stuff on etsy.
Is it a popular site? I didnt think many people knew about it b/c I had never heard of it until I came to craftster!
Are there any other sites similar to etsy?
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / cheer camp package? on: June 12, 2006 11:32:43 PM
My sister is going to cheer camp for a week, and she is really dreading it. She has been really down on herself lately, so I thought it might be fun to surprise her w/ something! Problem is, I cant think of much!
She's going to Florida, so I was thinking a cute beach and/or cosmetic bag, a beach towel... But thats where I get stuck! I think she is going to buy all her own travel size things like body wash & deoderant, so I dont know what else to throw in. I'm sure she will take her own camera & sunblock... I dont think she will write, but she will only be gone for a week anyway.
Maybe some sunglasses, antibac soap, a word search or coloring book? I dont know what else!
I was thinking I could throw in candy but she is self conscious about her weight!!

please help fast! She's leaving Wednesday morning!
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / photo purse on: June 12, 2006 04:12:43 PM
My mother's 40th bday is in 2 weeks!!! I was thinking I should get started trying to find her a gift asap, b/c I'm having my wisdom teeth taken out 2 days before her bday. I figured I'd be too out of it to buy her something then.
SOOOO I got to thinking maybe I could make her a purse. I'd like to make her a photo purse!!!
But I have no idea what I would use for it! Clear vinyl? My printer is a piece of junk, so I dont want to have to print anything.. I was thinking something I could just insert a photo of the family in...
I dunno.
What can I use for this?!
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / covering a scrapbook? on: June 06, 2006 04:23:11 PM
I couldnt find a scarpbook I liked, so I decided to just buy one & cover it.
I found a scrapbook, but now I'm not sure what to use to cover it!
I plan on using fabric, but what should I use to hold the fabric on? I'm afraid that glue will show through, and I dont have the patience to put elastic on it and make a book cover (it was just a cheapo book anyway!)..

So. ideas anyone?
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / new purse, yay! on: June 01, 2006 10:25:28 PM

The second pic is the same purse flipped inside out so you can see the [stupid off centered] pocket w/ my label on it. I have no idea what I would ever wear this purse with! 
And the pics were taken in my unlit hallway w/ my camera phone.. SO since you cant see the fabric that I used very well, here is a swatch of it:

The lining is like a country/antique red>

What do you guys think I could possibly get for this? Maybe $15-$20?  It's probably not something you would want to carry every day, thats why I think I would have a hard time selling it.
Thanks for looking, sorry the pics are so blurry.
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / latest purses on: May 25, 2006 03:29:22 PM
I made these purses recently. I took the pics w/ my phone, sorry they arent great quality.

This one makes me think 'Bozo the Clown'... anyone else??? I originally bought it b/c I thought it'd look cute w/ my scrubs, but it doesnt match as great as I thought it would

I made this purse & gave it to my boyfriend to give his mom for mothers day. It just looks funny b/c its hanging on a doorknob

I really like this one... =)

I just recieved this fabric today, and I cant WAIT to make a purse w/ it!!! It'll go great w/ my scrubs (so I HOPE)

=) Anyway, thats all for now. Thanks for looking!

9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Does anybody knwo how to fiix a sewing machine? on: April 23, 2006 08:15:08 PM
I d/n where else to post this, but I sure dont have time to take my machine to a shop at this hour.

I'm pretty sure I had this problem before, but I cant remember what fixed it.
My needle just stays in one place!!! The fabric wont move through the machine unless I pull at it, and then the stitches are extremely small & bad looking.

I've tried everything that I can think of w/o having to take it to a shop, but before I take it somewhere, I was wondering if anybody else knew what to do

(My dad wont help me, b/c he said it's not messed up. he thinks you are supossed to pull the fabric through!)
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / purse handles... helppp! (pic heavy?) on: April 17, 2006 09:19:17 PM
So, I'm making this bag for my boyfriend to give to his mother for Mother's Day. The purse is a placemat, so its not like I have an extra yard or two of the exact fabric hanging around (unless I go buy another $5 placemat to rip up?) to help.
Anyway. My question is... HOW do I get these handles on?! They didnt even come with instructions! I recently made a cute purse and used embriodery floss to hold the handles on, but it was a different set of handles. I thought I could figure these out, but I have NO clue. help!

This is the handle.. there are 2.

This is the purse...

ideas? advice?
