1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Mount Fabric on: May 30, 2006 04:48:27 PM
Hey Crafsters!
I'm attempting to sew a purse from a pattern but I've come to a point of confusion. I'm pretty new to sewing and the only other person who I know who sews is my mom and she has learned the old school way of never using a pattern. Anywho, my predicament is that the pattern I'm using calls for mount fabric for the base of the purse. I've tried googling it and all I can come up with is sites about window treatments. I am mighty confused and I hope I can get some insight from you lovely ladies about what I should use. The purse is slouchy but not too slouchy if that helps at all  Huh

Thanks in advance

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Alternate uses for origami paper? on: May 29, 2006 02:47:17 PM

A great use for origami paper is the technique of Iris Folding in cards. www.irisfolding.circleofcrafters.com

Some pretty neat stuff at this site, check out their gallery for more ideas. I think they also have a section called tea bag folding which could be cute with origami paper but I'm not too familiar with it.

Oooh how exciting! I could play Monkey Island any time of day. I'm definitely up for a Lucas Arts swap.
Did anyone play Zak McCracken and the Alien Mindbenders or Maniac Mansion? Those were some twisted games hehe.

So my latest discoveries in Montreal are Ted's Hobby Shop in Pointe-Claire and the Dollorama at the Faubourg. Ted's has a ton of stuff for all our crafting needs..paint, paper, stickers, kits, shrinky dink paper, etc. The dollarama has awesome handmade type paper, tons of scrapbooking stuff, they even have packs of photo paper for a dollar. I love the place Smiley Enjoy!

Oooh Thats the one! It looks even cuter on the webpage. Where do you find that glue? I'm gonna try it tonight and post some pics soon.
Thank you everyone for your help! Smiley

Hehe that would be the science nerd in me trying to complicate my descriptions... A triangle with two long equal sides and a smaller base.
I guess what I was trying to say is that the purse has two defined longer sides and a flat base and so from the side it looks like a triangle.

Hmmm Hot glue isn't a bad idea, perhaps I shall try that before I attempt to sew anything.

Thanks Smiley
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Large metal Gromets on: May 17, 2006 09:38:49 AM
Hey all,

My mom and I are trying to sew curtains for her room. She's pretty funky and likes big chunky things and so wants large grommets for her to hang it with. The fabric store only carries the smaller ones and the one example they had there of curtains in that style, the lady refused to divulge information about where she bought the grommets from. Has anyone had any experiences with these grommets?
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Chinese Place Mats into Purse on: May 17, 2006 09:34:08 AM
Hey Everyone,
I was out for dinner the other night and saw a girl carrying a purse made from a Bamboo type place mat (the kind with lots of long thin wood sticks all attached). The mat was rolled into an isosceles triangle shape with the ends of the mat meeting to make the opening. From what I could see there was fabric sewn into the triangle shape. I know I'm so bad at explaining but I'm looking for a picture to show you guys.

Anyhow, I have no clue how to sew fabric onto the mat, anyone have any ideas???
