2  My first macrame bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Shimmer on: August 10, 2006 02:27:03 PM
I found a tutorial a couple days ago and made this:

Nothing too exciting but it was fun  Smiley I used waxed cotton cord (which I really liked working with because it held the knots great!) and some wood beads that I found at Michaels.

That's my boyfriend modeling it btw. I swear I'm not that hairy  Tongue

3  Little plastic horses + magnets = spiffy necklace rack *TUTORIAL* in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Shimmer on: August 06, 2006 04:27:54 PM

I really needed a place to hang my necklaces but really don't have anywhere to put a rack that needs to sit on a table so I came up with this idea! Best of all, it only cost about $10  Grin Here's what you need:

- Some little plastic horses (or other animals. I chose horses because they stuck out far enough to hang something on)
- Small but strong magnets
- A magnet board (or something magnetic to stick them to)
- Hot glue
- Something to cut the horses in half with (we used a ban saw)

Step one: Cut the horses in half. I cut them right before their hind legs so there would be plenty of room on their back for the necklaces to rest.
Step two: Glue the magnets on.
Step three: Stick them to your magnet board and hang your necklaces  Grin

4  Serger help? Please!! in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by Shimmer on: November 08, 2005 04:40:30 PM
I'm doing a 2 thread flatlock sticth and it's just loose. It looks ok from the outside (where the sticthing is) but when I open the fabric I can pull it apart. It's hard to explain so I took a picture of the inside.

I read the book that came with the serger and I can not figure out how to fix this. I adjust the thread tension like it says but it doesn't help. I'm going incredibly crazy now please help!! I would be so greatful!
