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  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?
3  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???

4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Mother's Day / Gardening mom and bfs mom... what is appropriate? on: May 08, 2006 06:21:35 PM
Hey everyone,
I was hoping to get some input into my mothers day gift. My mom hates clutter so in other words crafts = clutter to her Smiley She is a big gardner though and so I was hoping to make her something garden related. At thiis point the only idea I can come up with is to take pictures of flowers in the garden and make a calendar out of it. What do you guys think? Any other ideas?
Also, I want to make something for my future mother in-law ... what is too much and what is too littlle? I don't know her taste very well.

They will be meeting for the first time on mothers day so I dont want to make something where my mom or my to be mom will feel aakward...

Argh procrastination and confusion have left me in a bit of a pickle
