2  Re: Mini Irons in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by thisisserious on: March 09, 2006 10:47:59 PM
i have the Heidi Swapp iron and it's really good, but i'm pretty sure it's smaller than the Clover.

it's really small, but it gets nice and hot.   Smiley

are we talking about the same clover mini iron? this one:

i saw it in the rag shop and the part that gets hot is only like 1" or 2", unless i'm out of my mind and not remembering properly. it doesn't seem possible to me that an iron in the style of the heidi swapp one could be that tiny. if it is, and you still say it works so well, maybe i'll try that one out. i don't like the clover one mostly because of how you have to hold it and because, apparently, the handle and stand get very hot. i can't find any detailed information on it anywhere, so i'm going to hope that you'd be willing to answer a couple of questions for me. how big is it (about)? how long does it take to heat up? is it a pre-set temperature, or are there different temp. settings? thank youuu =)

3  Re: TUTORIAL: Magnetic Snaps in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by thisisserious on: January 19, 2006 03:25:03 PM
does everyone sew around the snap? When i made a purse i didnt, i just used a peice of fabric. will it hold up do you think?

I just made a purse with a very thin cotton lining and the outer fabric was a normal cotton weight. I forgot to put interfacing on to stabilize the area for the magnet before I sewed the lining on, so I came up with something that worked perfectly. I used Unique Stitch to glue a rectangle of lining & a rectangle of the outer fabric together with the outer fabric on the front. I attached the magnet to it and then used Unique Stitch to glue it to the bag. I did that for both sides and it's perfect. Unique Stitch really holds up well to it's "sewing with a tube" slogan. I'll take a picture and edit my post with it.

The edges weren't cut perfectly straight, so "rectangle" isn't really true, but you get it. Haha.
