1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / How to make a balloon arch on: June 12, 2007 07:13:38 AM
Hi All! I have been making balloon arches / columns for years. I thought it might come in handy for summer parties  Smiley

Supplies: latex balloons,helium, paper clips, fishing line, weight(a big rock wrapped in cloth,paper, etc, works well)

Take your fishing line and tie it to your anchor (big rock, what ever you have Wink)

This works best with two people - one inflating balloons and one attaching to the fishing line. Inflate balloons and tie as normal, then instert the paper clip into the tied end below the knot. then, attach the balloon to the fishing line.  Just keep adding balloons till the desired height is reached, then tie your open end to another weight. These are surprisingly easy to make and maneuver. You can also buy a strip from party supply stores. It runs about $6 and works on the same principle, inflate the balloons and attach to the plastic strip. Hope this helps...... Grin

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / 99 cent Pattern Sale -Starts today!!!! on: March 08, 2007 11:55:35 AM
Hi All!

Hancock's has a 99 cent pattern sale today thru Sat. on McCall's & Butterick Patterns. JoAnn's has Simplicity patterns on sale for $1.99 this weekend. If you do not have one of these stores close to you, then print off the flyer from their website and Wal-Mart will price match. Save time! Search the Mccalls.com website and write down the pattern #'s you want. Happy Shopping  Grin
BTW - thefabric dept.'s at Wal-Mart that are scheduled to close should be shut down by the end of April.  Embarrassed
Also, I found out that they will be clearance-ing out their inventory since it would be too costly to transport notions and bolts to other stores. Is there anything better than 99cent patterns and clearance bin fabric?Huh??
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / It is never too early for fleece on: August 08, 2006 07:35:45 AM
Here is a 3 pc. fleece outfit, made using Simplicity 5317, sz 4. I got the fleece super cheap, during JoAnn's 90% off clearance sale. I literally have less than a $1 in this whole set. The pink fleece print has butterflies on it -kinda hard to see. I added heart applique's to the pants. This is one of my favorite fleece patterns. Great for beginners.
This is my first post - comments welcome  Smiley

6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Help - How to Machine Applique? on: March 08, 2006 12:02:25 PM
Hello fellow craftsters. I need your help. I want to learn how to do machine applique. I have been told to use a stabilizer underneath the fabric and use a fusible web to adhere the fabric and then go around the applique using a tight zig zag stitch. Before I "ruin" my daughters favorite pair of jeans, does anyone else have any pointers? Basically, I want to take my daughters (age 2 & 4) favorite charachters from a cotton print (strawberry shortcake, dora) and applique them onto existing jeans, sweatshirts, etc. Any ideas or suggestions much appreciated. Thanks
