11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Cutting it close... bag and wallet present on: December 24, 2007 03:36:10 AM
I finished this bag and wallet yesterday, they are a christmas present for my sister. Yes, I love a good deadline  Smiley

The green fabric is cotton; the buttons are made from some vintage fabric I found tucked away in my grandmothers closet.

The pattern is based on the pleaded iridescent clutch.

I used a contrasting orange for the lining.

And I made a matching wallet!
Pattern can be found here:

This is my first time making a bag and wallet, and I think it went pretty well, hopefully she'll like it!
12  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Gocco Question on: December 12, 2007 08:08:57 AM
So I just bought a gocco (*very excited*), I want to print my xmas cards with it. Now I have 1 question, I use thin lines in my artwork, will I be able to reproduce them with gocco? How fine can you go?
I don't wanna waste a screen since I have to order them from Japan  Smiley
13  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Monofloot Robot Doll on: November 06, 2007 01:25:39 PM
My boyfriend is in this band called monofloot. They make, well, noise  Smiley . Not really my thing but with their first gig coming up I wanted to show I'm being supportive.
So I decided to make one based on the illustrations on their site into a doll ( done by the boyfriend by the way). I wanted to make a crocheted one at first but seing all the lovely felt toys on here, I decided to give felt a go.

So tadaa, the first official Monofloot:

He"s not quite perfect, I had some problems with the stuffing, but all the band members were really enthusiastic!

(You can see the original artwork at http://www.monofloot.com )
14  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Toy EU Regulations on: November 05, 2007 04:21:22 AM

I've been thinking about making and selling felt toys. But if I'm not mistaken there are regulations in the EU for selling toys, concerning safety. Does anybody have any experience with this?
Can you sell toys for instance as "designer toys" to avoid regulations?
15  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Help! Singer behaving badly! on: August 25, 2007 12:04:12 PM
So, I'm new to sewing. I'm learning myself so I just know the basics, and by that I mean the basic basics.

So I was pretty confused when my brand new singer decided he didn't wanna play any more. Here's what happened: I was happily sewing along when I ran out of thread on the bobbin. I rewinded it and then all of the sudden, I got these loops on the bottom of my sewing. I knew as much to think that it might be the tension which was set to auto. So I added tension, same thing. I reduced the tension and, yes you guessed, it same thing. I'm a bit at loss, I tried rewinding a new bobbin but I still got the same problem. I have a Singer Inspiration 4112, and with this model there's no way you can put the bobbin in wrong....

Can somebody please help me, this is so frustrating   Sad

I added some pictures, don't know if they'll help...

16  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Can you cut a zipper? on: June 05, 2007 04:14:42 AM

I'm pretty new to this sewing thing; so sorry if I'm asking dumb questions  Smiley

I bought this vintage dress from ebay a while back. No, I love the floral pattern on it but it's just a bit too much for a dress. So I want to make just a skirt out of it.

Now, I'm wondering if, instead of taking out the zipper, can I just cut it? I'm not that good at stitching in invisible zippers  Smiley
I mean cutting the zipper won't be that difficult but you do lose the stop, so is there a way of putting that back in?

Thanks for your help!
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Online patterns in Europe on: March 16, 2007 05:13:20 AM
After seeing all the fabulous clothes made with Simplicity patterns, I'm starting to get a little jealous ...
I live in Belgium which means that shipping expensive and delivery time goes up.  Sad
Does anybody know any alternative sites that ship from Europe?
Thanks a lot!
