2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / want to make an altered art journal. Where to start? on: March 17, 2011 04:33:53 PM
Hi all,
i want to make an altered art journal (already have the theme of the book i want to create) just need some advice on how to go about it. Have seen some fab books on here!
I have started to glue some pages of an old novel together but the pages are warping a bit and now dont sit straight so the book doesnt close properly! Am now thinking of taking each page out of the book and do something else with them.
so my questions are: how to start, what is the best type of book to use?
I want to glue the pages together so i can paint on to them.

Thanks all.

i will do thanks for your help!

It will take me a while i think as this will be my first attempt at making anything from a pattern! i have got practice in on my machine from altering a shirt and just generally having a go at any scraps of fabric.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: quick question on how much material i need on: February 07, 2007 06:22:05 AM
thanks for trying!

i think it is saying that i need 1.35 meters in length.
i will print the pattern out and lay it out over the fabric that i have and see!

also i guess i could use two different fabrics, one for the top half and a different one for the bottom!
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: quick question on how much material i need on: February 07, 2007 06:05:41 AM
so for the first one it would be 55 inches / 140 cm wide ? and then 1.35 meters length?

this is the dress . the pattern is online.
I can't figure out how much fabric i need. it says for a us 14, for example 1.35 meters of fabric.

but what width? or is all fabric the same width? I'm confused!

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: I have a ankle length black flare-y skirt. Want to reconstruct but to what? on: January 28, 2007 07:10:22 AM
thanks. the label says cotton, polyester mix. The fabric is lightweight and has got crinkles in it (so non iron)

i can wear the skirt with the elastic as the neck line but then the skirt starts to flare out so is unflattering and i am quite curvey pear shape (uk size 12-14) I will try it with a belt first and may go down that route as well.

There is about 7 triangles at the hem of the skirt making it flare-y
