11  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / To wash or not? Outdoor fabric. on: June 10, 2008 05:51:07 PM
Should I wash my outdoor fabric for my furniture before sewing? Or is it ok to leave it since this won't be going in the washer. Huh
12  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Help! I've fallen through my rocker seat! Images fixed. on: May 19, 2008 03:32:32 PM
The bottom of our thrifted rocker ripped out last summer as someone went to set down. Ow! Hubby to the rescue!

He had always wanted to cane something so he jumped at the chance to work on this.

Yay! Now we can sit down! But we can't lean back?

Oh, here it is. He fixed that problem too. Ain't he sweet? Cheesy

And a nice seat to enjoy the yard from what was once trash.

13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Faded, abused tote to Midnight Blue Daily Tote I want to be seen carrying on: May 19, 2008 03:12:54 PM
Hi all!

I had an old, faded and abused looking tote. It had served me many years as a good and faithful bag, but it had succumbed to time itself, loosing its youthful bloom. But it had such good bones, great material and I could really use it. But I could not think what to do to make it better looking.

One day, after making up tons of fabric grocery bags, I had two forlorn pieces of material getting ready to go back into the scrap box. Until, these two pieces of fabric cuddled up together and I saw the beauty they made side by side. They looked good, but along came a ribbon and gave it a fairy tale look.

There was not enough of either material to cover a side, so I cut it up and sewed it into strips.

Very soon, I had a bag to be proud of.

Now this happy bag resides in my Jeep and whenever I need to pick up just a few things for the day, I can always toss it in this bag and not have to worry about carrying home five plastic bags inside.

14  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Looking for 20" Doll Clothing Patterns on: December 13, 2007 02:59:32 PM
I am looking for some pattern for a baby doll, about 20 inches in length. She is about the size of a three month old.

Can anyone help?
15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Anyone care to be my sewing mentor? Kick in the tush? on: November 28, 2007 05:30:00 AM
That is all I need really, just someone to help me get through one small section of a dress I have 60% finished.

I have to cut a very long piece on the bias but do not want to cut my extra material in such a long strip, effectively barring me from ever using the remaining material.

Maybe just 'At'a girl!'?
16  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / How to use Hem Tape on: October 16, 2007 07:12:35 AM

I am trying to figure out how to use hem tape, but have the sinking feeling that I am doing it wrong.

I have looked both here and Googled and still am finding no information on how to use this stuff.

Any information would be wonderful.

Thanks! Smiley
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Wrap Skirt bags in back? on: September 28, 2007 02:05:14 PM
I have just made two wrap skirts. One fits perfectly, the other sags horribly in the back. What am I doing wrong? Would darts fix this problem? If darts would help, two in the back or one on each side?

The front lies perfectly.

18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Wrap Around Skirt Front Panel Wide Enough? on: September 20, 2007 05:42:16 PM
I made a wrap around skirt with no pattern and the thing fits wonderfully! But I messed up a bit on the front panel measurements.

I only have four inches of overlap. If I sit down, I am still covered and feel comfortable in this skirt.

The question is, am I kidding myself that four inches of overlap is enough? I have more material, but I am afraid that adding another panel will take away from the wonderful pattern on the material.

19  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Why is my measurment 46 inches, but I wear a 40-42 inch bra? on: March 26, 2007 10:33:20 AM
Anything larger than a 42 and it hangs off of me. Something tells me I am measuring the wrong thing maybe?
20  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Baby Clothing Sizes? on: July 02, 2006 01:54:56 PM
I need the waist size of an 18 month old girl. I want to make a little A-line skirt for my niece's birthday, but do not have the time to buy a pattern before her party.

I can't measure her, because she is 2 hours away.

Can anyone help?
