How do you make the coffee paint? It looks really cool to try! How does it hold up to washing?

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / quilting question on: December 16, 2005 09:37:57 AM

I was thinking that I wanted to make a quilt over winter break. I get how to sew the squares together, but once I have the front side all together how do I put the batting on and put the backing on and everything. I can't really find a clear explanation on a website anywhere. Can someone who is expeirenced explain this to me?

You can also hot glue them into cubes and use them as hanging things ie. christmas ornanments, wall art whatever. I am thinking that this would be cool for my geekish older brothers 1st christmas tree.

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Bike painting? on: September 24, 2005 07:25:58 PM
Hi all,

I inherited my brothers old bike to take to college and it happend to be a horrid color. Read flourencent orange terribleness. I want to paint it maybe dark green and yellow (UVM school colors), but there is one small problem with my grand plan. The bike currenlty had tons of black dots on it. You know the kind of stickers used for logos and decorations. This bike has stickers that are supposed to look like mud or something. Any advise on removing the stickers to paint my bike. Maybe some kind of chemical, or is it just going to be tedious work with a razor blade. Has anyone ever attempted something like this before? Any advice, or other grand ideas would be really helpful.


7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Singer Sewing Machine-Stop Motion Screw on: August 16, 2005 06:29:13 PM

I just aquired a Singer Model 457 (stylist zig-zag sewing machine) sewing machine. It is from the late 60s or 70s. I started by trying to thread a bobbin. I turned the stop motion screw (the dial on the inside of the wheel) to the stop postion so I could use the bobbin winder. The dial kept coming undone and the needle would begin going up and down again. I tried to turn it harder and it seems to be stuck in the needle going up and down postion. This isn't a huge problem, it just means I can't use the bobbin threader any more. Any ideas on how to get the stop motion screw (the inner silver dial on the turn wheel) unstuck. I guess I over tightened and now I can't get it loosened. Any advice would be greatly appreiciated.

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Does your knitting bother your significant other? on: August 01, 2005 02:53:56 PM
My best guy friend that everyone swears I am dating asked me to go to the craft store to get yarn with him. He knows how to knit hats and wants to learn to crochet them after seeing my hats. I think you just need to get you significant other to enjoy knitting, or at least enjoy the products of your knitting, that way he won't be so annoyed by it. A guy can never have too many hats... well at least in vermont a guy can't Smiley Good luck!

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Making flares smaller? on: August 01, 2005 02:20:48 PM
I have a pair of jeans that I bought a year or two ago, but I never wore because they were too tight (why i bought them I have no idea). I tried them on recently and now they fit (reverse freshman 15  Smiley ) but unfortunely the flares are now too wide for my liking. Is there any easy way to make the flares smaller without making it look like I did it, or is this a trial and error thing? Also I want them a bit longer? What can I do to make them an inch longer? I don't want to undo the bottom hem, but any other ideas? Thanks!
