21  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / how do i fix this next time? on: May 11, 2007 02:48:01 PM

this is one of my first attempts at a 3-d stuffie...my 3 year old fell in love with sewingstars' whales.... ( www.sewingstars.com/index.php?item=216&ret=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sewingstars.com%2F%2Findex.php%3Fpage%3D1%26category%3D1 ) which are amazing...but not intended for children...so i feebly attempted to make a pathetic facimile....but in my mind's eye, the tail did not stick up in the air (like shamu's)...would anyone be able to tell me how to change my "pattern" so that next time it doesnt do that?.... fortunately, my son doesnt care Smiley

and apparently i suck at stuffing, is there any good way to have it not be bumpy and lumpy?

thank you so much for any help!
22  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / storing velvet on: January 15, 2007 12:58:52 PM
i wasnt sure where to post this....i have a pretty large piece of white velvet...and i just had it folded (with tissue paper) and hanging over a coat hanger...but when i went to look at it the other day, it is gettting some nasty creases in it...how is the best way to store velvet without ruining it?
23  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / fish pattern help? on: November 09, 2006 04:38:41 PM
i recently saw this fish mobile...


those colors really arent going to work in the nursery...i was wondering if anyone knew of a pattern for making little fishes Smiley  i think that i might be able to figure it out if i spent enough time on it...but...with a three year old and a 2 week old...i just dont see that happening...

i would really appreciate it if anyone can help Smiley
24  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / decreases?....please help! on: September 25, 2006 09:05:03 AM

i am making this hat for my brother for christmas....


but he has a large head and i had to increase the number of cast on stitches...and she tells how to deal with making the hat larger...but only tells how to do the decreases on the given number of stitches...can anyone help me?....i especially am worried about making a super tall hat because it takes more rows to decrease it...

its my first time ever doing a double knit and im at a loss here....thanks for any suggestions!
25  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / in tears over sleeves...please help on: September 17, 2006 09:43:15 PM
i am a beginning sewer...i took a few classes (one for a shirt and one for a skirt)...the shirt class was for a pullover knit fabric short sleeve shirt...and i think i did a pretty good job attaching sleeves (they are cap style)...

so being all ambitious...i decided to buy a pattern (from the easy section) and try a button down with woven fabric....and i have ripped out and re-sewn the sleeves about 4 times (i finally have to just leave them the way they are because my fabric is getting horribly frayed)...with out the stretch factor of knit fabric, i cannot for the life of me figure out how to make the convex and the concave edges match up...it is maddening!!!

and is it just ineveitable to not have much range of motion?...the shirt fits (ok except that the bust area is a bit too big)...so why cant i move my arms?...

i wish i knew someone who knew what they were doing who could show me the way...but i figured that this was the next best thing (that is if it is something that can be explained over the internet -- i did look for instructional web sites but couldnt find anythign)

i appreciate any help you can offer!
