You could try using this pattern. http://www.annespatch.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/picture9.html It's incredibly basic and I'm not totally convinced by the shape, but you could try just making them a bit longer on the wrist and cutting the pattern straight instead of doing the fingers and chopping off the top of the thumb.

3  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Re: Metric V Imperial - why? on: January 01, 2005 11:49:15 AM
Well the measuring bits with body parts doesn't work for me, all my bits are a bit too short lmao! My arm to nose span to get the yard is 5 inches too short infact.

Metric systems are far easier to work with because they divide nicely. But I have to convert one to the other as I work in a fabric shop in the UK and most people still work in imperial in dressmaking.

Thats a really nice version! I bet you could make it more masculine for you though, maybe make it wider and more messenger bag shaped...hmm ideas forming! lol

neany..where did u get the buckle thing? did u remove it from a belt or something?

No, it's a kilt buckle, you can buy them in the UK on market stalls and such. It'd be easy to make if you have some thin leatherette and a small buckle.

I'm working in a fabric shop and we stock it. Well, we stock a type of net that looks like fish net but it's not totally stretchy. Of course I've forgotton how much it is!

I'm not going to be able to do this one, but if you do another then I'd most likely be interested! Shame, I'd like to have done this one but I just can't.

yeah I would say looking at it that it's top stitching on the outside
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: A lined bag without a seam? on: November 20, 2004 04:04:38 AM
There's other ways, but I know of none that would be more effective or show anyless.

It mainly depends on the stitch you use. I never sew my holes with a machine, I always do it by hand. I do a striaght stitch but I make sure it stays on the inside. I put my needle in through the back first and out through the front so my knot is not showing. I then put the two sides together so it looks like a normal seam as you are looking at it. I then take a stitch through one side right in the seam line, then another on the other side directly next to it. and so on til I reach the end, then tie off. I don't know if that helps at all or even makes sense, but any problems pm me!
