61  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / paper and sewing on: April 08, 2007 05:03:02 PM
hi, This may have asked a jillion times, but does anyone have tips/hints for machine sewing with paper and/or paper with fabric?  I've been reading a magazine cloth, paper, scissors.  This technique is mentioned frequently, but I don't know about using my machine with paper.  thanks.  catdaddytn

63  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / wristlet pattern on: February 12, 2007 02:03:02 PM
I have looked through the tutorial list and done a google search, but have not located a pattern for a wristlet that looks something like a hobo purse.

This wristlet is rounded on the bottom.  The top has two straps or loop and then one of the straps/loops goes through the other one.  It seems like one strap is shorter than the other.  After one strap is looped, then it seem that one can put the strap over one's wrist.

Sorry to be so vague sounding.  Thanks for any ideas.  I'll also check some pattern books.

thanks. catdaddytn
64  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / men's bowtie on: February 03, 2007 08:09:31 PM
Has anyone made a men's bowtie?  I'm thinking of making one for my husband to match our daughter's dress for a father/daughter Valentine's dinner/dance.  This is a major event in our community for 3 nights with all being sold out.

My daughter's dress is lime green.  She's almost 17.  I'm hoping my son who is nearly 20 will have dinner me that night.

thanks.   catdaddytn
65  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / hobo bag on: December 27, 2006 09:41:28 AM
hi,  My 16 yo daughter made her first hobo bag this week for friends' Christmas gifts.  It was a nice experience to work with her.  This is from a Simplicity pattern with an oval bottom.

Which brings me to my question:  Do any of the tutorials on the craftster group include a hobo bag with a square bottom or rectangle bottom?

The oval bottom is hard for me to get sewn without little glitches, overlaps or I can't really think what to call the problem.  I've decided that a little something off on the oval bottom is just a given.  I've gotten much better though.  A finished purse today was almost just right.

My daughter decided to make her purses without interfacing.  she likes the slouchy look.  They turned out great.  This notion really started out because she was tired of cutting out fabric.

hi,  has anyone made a bag to hold a laptop computer?  I wonder if a messenger bag would work.   thanks.  catdaddytn
67  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / displaying quilts on: November 28, 2006 02:09:27 PM
hi,  I'd like to hang an heirloom quilt on a wall.  Any ideas?  I read about some hangars and sewing on a sleeve, but I'd like your thoughts.  Would it be OK to sew on a sleeve type thing on an heirloom quilt or would you use a hangar thing. 

I hope to do this in an economical way, but even more important is to preserve the quilt.

thanks.  catdaddytn
68  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / magic bubble memory keepsakes on: November 28, 2006 12:28:43 PM
hi,  Has anyone used this product ... Magic Bubble to make memory keepsakes?  These aren't necessarily Christmas ornaments, but certainly could be.

Brief description:  Use the magic liquid to put photos or other pictures inside a clear ornament.

The Magic Bubble Liquid seems like decoupage "stuff."  This technique is described in a CanDoCrafts book and I read about it on HGTV website.

Any thoughts on using this product?  A google search for magic bubble came up with a site to buy these products.

thanks.  catdaddytn

70  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / male gifts for international trip on: June 13, 2006 01:44:17 PM
hi,  I got some ideas from crafters for gifts to take to Japan.  I've been working on some paper type crafts, like bookmarks from marbled paper.  What about small, hand-crafted gifts for men?

Thanks for any ideas.   catdaddytn
