1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Sexy cowboy tobacco pouch/wrap on: August 04, 2010 07:01:02 AM
I've been sewing a lot recently.. Not got around to posting most of it, but I absolutely had to share the tobacco wrap I made to keep all my rolling tobacco stuff in one place. I was getting pretty peed off with my previous method of storage, that being the chuck it into the abyss that is my handbag method. Very frustrating.

So.. own design, didn't so much plan it as had a vague idea of how big I wanted it, the whole thing changed as I went along.

Of course, I just HAD to use the sexy cowboy fabric I had knocking around from making a friend's birthday pressie last year (year before?). I could seriously find a use for a whole bolt of this fabric Cheesy

For the inside, I chose polkadots, because I'm totally obsessed.

It's about the size of a standard size packet of tobacco, but holds about 1/3-1/2 a pack. The little zippy pouch fits perfectly and keeps the baccy from getting everywhere (which it always did when I was keeping it in the packets it came in.

I'm rather chuffed with the paper holder pouch.. I used my buttonhole setting to create a mouth on it, so you can pull out a paper without having to fiddle with the little cardboard pockets.

Filters just go in the pouch, which is closed with a cute button on some decorative (and functional) elastic.

2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Broken Spool Pin, Brother PS 33 on: January 21, 2009 09:27:36 AM
Hello all,

I moved house at the start of the week, and quite typically, something *had* to break. This time my poor sewing machine fell victim and the spool pin snapped off Cry

I have a brother PS 33, and I've opened it up, but can't even see how the thing even attaches, let alone how to get a new one on. Does anyone have a similar machine and can offer any advise?

It looks like a laterally placed metal pin holds the spool pin shaft in place, but there doesn't seem to be a way to get the pin out. Help?

Any suggestions as to where I could find a new spool pin would also be much appreciated!
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Where to buy Swivel/Lobser Clips on: October 28, 2008 06:10:56 AM
Anybody know where I can buy 50-100 Swivel Clips online?

The cheepest I've been able to find myself was 10 for 50 on eBay, but ideally I'd like to pay less then that (if I can!!).

This is what I'm looking for:

Anything that does a similar job would also do, so please throw me your suggestions!!

Thanks everyone Grin
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Lost Brother Machine Foot; HELP!!! on: July 25, 2008 05:44:13 AM
It would happen just as you have a swap deadline coming up, wouldn't it. You've left all the sewing until last, and you haven't unpacked the sewing machine since you moved house last month. You have your patterns cut, and you're ready to go. Only, lo and behold, you unpack your trusty machine only to find the (insert profanity) presser foot is missing!!!

What I've lost is the all-purpose foot that came with my Brother PS-33 machine (is the snap-on sort, front-loading bobbin (I think)).

My question is what type of foot do I buy to replace it?

It needs to be able to do straight sitching and zigzag, and I've found both variteties separatly, but I  want to be sure before forking out a ton. I can't belive this happened right before I have a deadline, when I've got a partner who specifically asked for items that are sewn!!!!!

Can anyone help me!? Embarrassed
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Rockabilly polkedot mini skirt on: May 19, 2008 01:53:23 AM
Another crazy short skirt for you here.. For those of you that saw my Harry Potter mini (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=240660.msg2650240#msg2650240) I'm sorry to report that the cotton was not such a great bargin after all, and all the colours faded Cry I'd even put it on a low wash for safety! Oh well..

This one is made out of the bottom half of a pair of jeans my housemate chopped into shorts. The spotty fabric is bought (sorry hard-core reconstructors!!), and incase you can't tell, it is so short, even my boyfriend (nautorious for trying to get me out in public with my knickers almost showing Roll Eyes ) said "I think you should.. er, wear tights with that one" !!! Cheesy

Mission accomplished! Haha.

Excuse the bad action shot, it was 1 am when I finished, and I just *had* to get pictures right away!

Yes, my zipper sucks. I don't have a zipper foot Embarrassed

Original idea & tutorial by ViolentJayne

C & C would be lovely Kiss
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Piratey Rat Hammock!! Edit: Action pic!! on: April 21, 2008 12:31:49 PM
This hammock is going straight to my friend Katie, and her 7 beautiful ratties!

It wasn't hard to make at all, and a great deal more successful then the one of similar design I made for my three (rather heavy Tongue) ferrets. Although they've still worn the thing through, I think it's about time I went fabric shopping with them in mind!!

The inside is lined with fleece, and the tabs are of a strong woven ribbon which should hold us, since her darlings aren't overly enthusiastic chewers.

I'll be sure to update with action shots as soon as I can! Wink

Any C&C are very welcome. Smiley

Edit: Action pic!!

This little missus (Gabby) is loving her new bed and demanding more!
7  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Elphie (From the books/musical Wicked) Keyring on: April 21, 2008 12:22:19 PM
A (very wonderful and generous Tongue) friend and myself are going to see Wicked in London next Saturday for her bithday. This little figure is part of her birthday gift (being a poor university student, I'm having to raid my stash and go handmade this year Cheesy). She's a little messy up close, please excuse the fluff! I was out of sand paper Roll Eyes

I used Corrie's clay bride as inspiration, thank you.

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / MCR Bottlecap belt! on: February 26, 2008 07:18:43 AM
I made this belt for my My Chemical Romance fanatic best buddy. She hasn't got it yet, but I sure hope she likes it, I was tempted to keep it for myself!

I think I can see myself making many more of these; I've had my housemates collecting bottle caps since the start of the year so I have no shortage of supplies!  Wink They think I'm mad...

The caps are attached to the belt by rounded buttons glued to the cap insides by epoxy glue, then sewn on. The eyelets were attached using my new eyelet setter; which I've been using for every project I can shake it at as of late Cheesy

The images were printed off, cut out into circles, and then PVA glued to the tops of the caps. Several layers of PVA were added to form a protective coat over the pictures, letting each layer dry completely in between coats.

A close up!

And an action shot!! Whee Cheesy

C & C welcome!
