1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Stuffing help! on: May 29, 2008 01:48:12 PM
I use old sheets, clothes and such torn into strips to stuff my soft toys, but since tearing up all the fabric needed takes a lot of time and causes a lot of dust that gets everywhere (especially my nose!), I was wondering if anyone knew of a place that sells shredded fabric?
I know places that take old clothes & etc. and shred it all to bits exist since I saw such a place on some interior decorating show (they used the fluff for flocking or an art piece or some such) ages ago, but didn't think to write down any info on the place then.
I'd also love to hear any ideas you might have for easily & quickly (and non-dustily) tearing up fabric too.
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Possibly getting a new Janome sewing machine, need advice & opinions! on: January 10, 2007 12:43:48 PM
OK, here's the deal; my parents promised to buy me either a brand new machine (or to pay for my old one -a 15+ year old Brother- to be serviced) as a Christmas present.
So I went to have a look at some sewing machines yesterday and fell for a brand new Janome. Unfortunately for the life of me I can't remember the model of the machine as I was so enamoured by how nicely it sewed, but after a quick Google, I think it's closest to the Type610 (http://www.janome.co.jp/home/type610.html). Having never actually used a Janome before I'd like to hear about your experiences with the machines. Good points? Bad points? Anything you can tell me about working with Janomes will be helpful really. Smiley
3  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 15 ENTRIES / Ursula the Robotologist (Now with more photos!) on: October 05, 2006 08:48:15 AM
This is the first challenge I've taken part in and it's been great fun so far. Cheesy

This is Ursula, she's a leading robotologist and she has been working with robots and electronics for years and years. Ursula is currently working on a robot that will look and act just like a real bear.
She has a PhD in science, electronics, robotics, mechanics and bizarrely enough, in cookery.

Ursula is made out of toffee coloured corduroy and she's been stuffed with rags and polyfill. She has a button for a belly button and her eyes and nose have been embroidered.

Her labcoat is made out of cotton and it has little decorative buttons on it.

I apologise for the not so good quality of the photo, the sun had already started to set by the time I got to taking photos of Ursula and so the lighting in the work room wasn't the best possible.
I re-did the photos today, with better light and less of a rush. I also took some additional shots of the details.

And for those who might be wondering, yes the electronics around her are actually recording equipment I borrowed from the boy for this shoot. Smiley
