1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Dissolving really old resin? on: May 19, 2013 09:55:28 AM
So I have this crazy thing:

I cant figure out how to get the picture out so I can reuse the setting. Any ideas? I am guessing its resin since it has yellowed so much. the date on the picture is 81/82. Thanks for any help.
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Discussion and Questions / Interchangable embroidery??? on: August 20, 2010 05:29:33 AM
Hi all!

I love all the cool machine embroidery patterns around nowadays but I already have like 30 sweaters and hoodies. Can anyone think of a way to make interchangable patches? That way I could just use one sweater or hoodie (aline skirt even!) and change the design to my ever changing mood. Velcro would be too bulky I think.

Thanks for any ideas!!

Thanks for sharing this! Could you explain more how you actually change the pattern piece to get that shape?

Wow! Thanks for all of your awesome comments! All of them are based on vintage patterns or vintage dresses in one of my many old catalogs. I have the Patternmaster software from Wildginger.com I just design them and them print them out in my size.

The green fabric is actually Halloween fabric! I liked it because it was all swirly and made me think of Nightmare before xmas.

thanks again!

I have been lurking and admiring for a while here and decided it was time to post some of my creations. These are dresses I have made over the last year. Enjoy!

7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: people just don't understand (rant!!) on: January 14, 2009 03:32:54 AM
I guess I am lucky, my friends and co-workers are AMAZED that I make my own clothes. They seem a little envious really. I sew because I am really hard to fit and I love vintage. It is a great feeling to see a dress on Ebay , or in an old catalog and be able to make it up in your own size.

What do people who don't have the compulsion to make thing do with their spare time anyway? Huh

Wonderful job. Shocked Bound buttonholes even! I agree that the thought of plaid is much more scary than actually sewing it. You just have to cut pieces out one at a time.
