1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / White transfer on black tshirt. Anyone know what went wrong? on: February 14, 2010 12:49:41 PM
So, I'm trying to make Bride/Groom shirts for my mom and her husband-elect. They want to have their reception at CiCi's and don't want to wear their formal attire to a pizza joint so they asked if I could make shirts for them. The groom shirt wasn't a problem. It looks perfect. The bride shirt however.....It is a hobby lobby tshirt, 50% cotton 50% polyester. This is what happened.

I'm thinking maybe it happened because I used a poly blend shirt. Has anyone had any experience with fixing anything like this? I was thinking maybe I could try bleach or paint.
2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / chicken pot pie and...... on: March 20, 2007 10:53:36 AM
My friends and I have get togethers on Fridays. We all take turns cooking. Next friday is my turn. I want to make chicken pot pie, but I don't know what to make for a side dish. I would do a salad, but nobody would eat it.

My recipe for the chicken pot pie has peas, carrots, and potatoes. It seems like doing corn or a potato for a side dish would be veggie overload.

Dessert will be New York style cheesecake.

Anybody have a good idea, because I sure don't.

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / i need some crafty help with a safety gate! on: February 20, 2007 10:00:40 AM
I have a cat. My friend, whom I'm moving in with in April, has a pug, a pug with a chewing problem. I need some crafty help with some sort of gate that I can leave in my bedroom doorway all the time which will do as many of the following as possible:
a. allow my door to shut
b. swing open somehow so I don't have to climb over it
c. allow my cat access to my room (he can jump, no problem)
d. keep the chew-happy pug out of my room

If I was rich, I would buy a baby gate.  I'm not rich, however, I am crafty!

I was thinking that I might be able to construct something with some old shutters, if I could find them for cheap somewhere.

If anyone has ever dealt with a similar problem in a crafty (and cheap!) manner, I would love to hear your solutions!

I want to keep the budget around $20 and I don't really care how attractive it is, as long as it's functional.
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Button hole help on: February 18, 2007 07:34:48 PM
I know this is going to make me sound like a noob, mostly because I pretty much am...but....

Can someone give me some basic instructions on making a button hole either
a. by hand OR b. on a machine that doesn't have a setting for making button holes

To anyone that offers advice (particularly pictorial advice!)  THANK YOU! and may karma be kind to you Wink
5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Card Book----->now with a very obese tutorial on pg. 2 on: January 10, 2007 12:03:02 PM
My grandpa recently died and my mom wanted to put her sympathy cards into a scrapbook. Her idea was to glue the backs of the cards to sheets of paper and put them in a three ring binder. I told her I could make something much much much better. So, this is what I did.
Each card is sewn in individually. She really likes it and everyone she shows it to is really impressed.

6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Cover issues on: September 16, 2006 07:18:56 PM
I've been making books for quite a while and just started having this problem where my cover has little tiny rips at the fold. I've done everything I can think of to make it not happen. I've made my cover in three pieces, front, back, and spine with a gutter to accomodate the fold, bone folding, not bone folding. Anyone have any suggestions on how to keep this from happening?

oh, I am using regular scrapbook paper and it's happened with several different brands.

Here are some photos.

7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / My *new* garage sale sewing machine on: August 26, 2006 08:18:24 PM
I got this machine at a garage sale for $5 because the machine I was using broke. I was wondering if anyone could help me find a manual for it. I've figured out the basics, but I would like to know how the bobbin winder works.  Thanks!
