391  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: VEST - My first sewing project from a pattern w/ noone's help :) on: December 07, 2006 06:08:07 PM
I bought a vest pattern a while ago so I could have one for the fall, but I got busy and then had to go away to school.

You just reminded me of how much I want to make one again.  That'll be on my list of projects to tackle when I get home for winter break.

I love yours.  And I actually like the fabric!

Oh my goodness.  I love these!

I think I'll have to make a forest of them as christmas gifts this year.

I'm kind of new to posting things on these boards, but why not?

I'm at Temple & I'd be more than interested in getting together to craft.  Just had a program in my building to learn to crochet, but all we got were printouts and supplies.  Kind of disappointing.

I'm going through some serious craft withdrawal being away from my sewing machine and basement full of fabric and supplies.

Thanks for all the help.

I did a search on stained glass quilts and I think I'll attempt it that way.

Thanks again.

(& cmoore, your self-portrait quilt is beautiful.)

I'm not sure if you want to do the leather panels on the sides, but it looks like you could possibly use an old turtle neck sweater to make this. 

That fold over flap around the top certainly reminds me of a turtleneck, especially because the ribbing is... tighter/smaller.

I guess if you just cut off the arms and made the torso part into the body of the bag, put a lining inside, added straps?

Just a thought.

I guess I could try something with fleece.

I just have a lot of fabric in my basement from when my mom used to sew, so I wasn't planning on buying anything for a first try.  But I might have some fleece laying around.

I'm thinking that if I put everything together (sew the front the way I'd like it with the batting attached and then put the back piece on) and do the edges and then sew along the outer edge and then maybe the middle square that would keep it more as one 'layer'.

Thanks so much for the fast reply.  I guess I'm just worried about if... 

Well if I worked on the front and then put the batting in and then the back and I only 'attached' the edges, would it stay as one layer, or would it get all... pulled apart in the middle?  Or is that something that doesn't even matter. Would the batting make the layers all 'stick'?

I don't know if I'm making a whole lot of sense.
398  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / 'Quilted' Blanket Questions. on: August 15, 2006 08:09:38 PM
All right, Im not sure if this is the right place to be asking this and I hope it doesnt irritate anybody, but Ive already gone through like 30+ pages of threads and I havent found an answer (perhaps because Im not sure what Im looking for).  But anyway

Im really interested in making this:

Or something similar.

Ive never quilted before.  Im not sure if this is even quilting at all, but this is the closest thing I can relate it to.  So Im hoping someone could help me.

I just want to make a light blanket/throw or something.  So I was thinking I wouldnt have to use batting, per se.  Maybe some other fabric, muslin?

Im not sure how to applique the pieces on?  And then how to stitch it together without the stitches transferring to the back of the blanket and having a 'stitched heart' on the back in thread.

Yeah, sorry for so many questions.  Its just I dont know anybody that I can ask and I figured you guys might have some suggestions.  Everyone here on craftster seems really helpful.  If this is in the wrong spot or if I'm just being completely oblivious, please delete.

Thanks in advance.
