101  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / a silly question about pre-washing fabric.... on: October 11, 2006 07:36:12 AM
Ok this might be silly but when you wash your fabric-wouldn't it all come unravled on the end that are cut?  Does it depend on the fabric?  how do you all do it?
102  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Lots o Scrub tops! (lots o pics too! ) on: October 07, 2006 07:01:48 PM
ok so i've hardly seen ANY scrub tops on craftster... unless i'm missing them.. Does anyone else make these?!  I work at a vet's office, and  I love making my own tops, they are so much CHEAPER than ordering from any catalog (NO SHIPPING $$) and i can make them fit me!

I've had TONS of comments on them at work! Everyone is telling me i should sell them... hmmm I was thinking maybe charging $10 -if they provide the fabric... sound good? Around 20$ if i provide fabric?
 It takes me about an hour and a half to make one...  What do you all think?  Grin

108  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / batting question!!? on: September 20, 2006 07:29:25 AM
Alright everyone- I was reading through the t shirt quilt topic and i couldn't really find the answer to my question....

So i'm making a t shirt quilt- I already have all my t shirts sewn together - and i'm wondering how exactly to put batting in it-and what kind to get... any advice, i have never used it before.
I want my blanket to have some warmth to it..

I was just going to use a regular bed sheet for the back of it.. So would i just sew the batting to the back of the t shirt part? and then sew it together like pillow style? turning it inside out?  Or could i use blanket binding?? i'm so confused.. Huh Wink

Any help would be MUCh apppreciated!!!
Thanks !
109  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Is it possible to add a zipper to this bag now? on: September 02, 2006 06:47:52 PM
Alright i'm just curious if i could still add a zipper to this bag?


Its basicly like a big jordy style bag.  Would i be able to just turn in inside out, and sew a zipper on the top keeping it open?

I'm looking to learn how to make zipper on the tops of my jordy bags...

This is the tutorial i've been using for all the bags i've made so far...

I've been looking at the ones in the tutorial list and i seem to understand them.. if anyone has any tips-hints, anything that would make it easier, That would be AWESOME!
Thank you!

I got about 1 yard of this hawiian mesh fabric from the remant bin at wal mart for 56 cents!  I'm thinking about making a drawstring bag maybe? Has anyone ever sewn with mesh before? Any tips on how i should make it? Should i line it? Thanks!
