1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / help dismantling Brother sewing machine on: February 28, 2008 09:59:09 PM
 Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed
This morning I woke up to a bobbin winder that wasn't spinning like it should be usually. I tried engaging the winding gear a couple of times and using different bobbins but it's dead. So I decided to open up my sewing machine to see what's wrong. After removing all the screws, the cover of my Brother sewing machine STILL won't come off!!! H-E-L-P!!

What's worse? I removed two screws at the bottom which links the power supply and I heard a clink and clank and realise this one had two rivets at the back! I managed to shake them out of my machine but since the cover won't come off, I can't put it back!!

I am using a Brother BM-2600. HELP PLEASE!!!
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / five stones - a traditional game on: October 27, 2007 04:50:55 AM
five stones is a traditional game, some may know it as jacks. they are similar but not exactly the same... i played it when i was a little girl and i'm not sure if people in other parts of the world play with them during their childhood. basically you throw them randomly then pick one up, throw it in the air and try to pick another one up before catching the falling one. (sounds a bit complicated eh?)

it's really easy to make, i used 5 pieces of fabric scraps sized 10cm x 7cm. a great way to use up those loose bits of pretty fabrics.  Smiley

a tutorial is available on my blog for those interested...
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Eco bag on: September 20, 2007 09:20:24 PM
Hello all, I just finished making an eco bag modeled after the common plastic bag. Smiley  The size is a bit off, thanks to me being too lazy to cut up an actual bag for measurements. It'd be better if the "straps" were thinner. I'll probably re-work this when I have the time.

By the way, I made this with my own pattern. This bag is fully lined and consists of only straight lines to sew.  Grin

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / japanese crochet grocery-bag-ish pattern help! on: March 22, 2007 08:40:15 PM
i have this book and am trying to make the bag on the cover:

it starts off in rounds and i am good until i reach the handles! am i being silly to think that i can crochet this bag in one continuous stitch or must i crochet the handles seperately and attach them to the bag itself?  Huh

any advice is greatly appreciated!
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / 'MEEP' gocco print on: June 12, 2006 09:13:37 PM

birdie illustration screenprinted onto cream card stock
letters 'MEEP' rubber-stamped individually

it took me two attempts to get this one right because i tried to use the blue screen and (eek!) it caused my image to be underexposed and i screwed 2 good bulbs + 1 good screen. Sad apart from that, i think i should stick to my Steadtler 2B pencils instead of some shanghai-china sea lion ones. :p

i love gocco!
7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / "ed hardy" sweatshirt screenprint with Gocco on: April 17, 2006 11:14:55 PM
it's my friend's birthday and i decided to screenprint a sweatshirt for her. she requested to have the word "infinity" on the shirt (her nickname) and i drew a ed hardy koi in the background because she adores ed hardy but i seriously can't afford to get her anything from the store.

it's my first gocco attempt on clothings. the text didn't come out very clearly, i should have left a margin all around the word. hopefully after a few washes the print will crack up and look more rugged?

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / best way to change colors? on: February 09, 2006 07:29:15 PM
hello everybody

i'm new to knitting and am wondering what do you do with the ends when changing colors while knitting. there's a few methods but which is the best, most seamless and less bulky way of doing it? i'd like to knit and purl 1 row one color, then knit and purl another row another color... using the knot the ends and weave in method but one side of my scarf will be all knotty and stuff.  Tongue

i'm also interested in how you weave two colors in one row and stuff like that related to knitting with more than one color! please share!

thanks in advance!  Grin
