Those are great! I'm going to have to pick up the supplies, I have so many magazines that would be great fodder for this!

Thanks for the inspiration.

Also, what is the deer image in the red/white one? It's beautiful.

Ack! ::ded from cute::

I'm hitting "This Rocks" because they totally do!

I just learned to crochet, and now I want to get better, like, now, so that I can make something half this cute!

I have a couple of those! They work great for beads, and hang perfectly on the sticky-up kind of pushpin. I have them hanging by my desk.

This was one of those times when I bought the candy just because of the container. The gum itself was pretty nasty.  Undecided

(( also, Trillian, I found them in my asian market, but I expect you could order them from someplace online too. ))

I was afraid there was no easy answer. I'm going to have to break it out again and start messing with it.  Tongue Oh well. At least I got quite a bit of the stuff, so I can play with it until I get it right.


A book with samples is a GREAT idea! I'm sure I could work something like that out. Thanks a lot for the advice!

Thank you for the pattern! These would make awesome sachets, too. I'm going to have to make a few, I think! Roll Eyes

I'm glad someone posted this topic. I'm having the same problem.

Last night I was trying to make a bag with 2 way stretch knit, and even when I was using a zig zag stitch, it was still wavy on the sides. Besides, I'm worried that a zig zag stitch won't be strong enough.

I ended up using bias tape and a strait stitch, but that looks crappy (even though it's inside the bag and you can't really see it). I want to make a couple more things out of the fabric I have left, but I haven't found a good way to do it.

I have a serger, but I'm evidently too stupid to use it. It still makes it wavy, even when I lengthen the stitch. I'm scared to mess with the tension, because I don't really understand how it works. Should the tension be set looser, or tighter, and on all the threads, or just some of them? I've read the book that came with my serger, but I can't get it to do the things that it says it's supposed to do (except gather -- I managed to get it to do that).

Thanks a lot!
