When you go to a bead store they have their beads on strings (not loose).  Usually there are several strings in a hank.

44  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Help with Bias Tape?? on: August 04, 2007 04:44:45 PM
Yes, you can make your own bias tape.  Just cut fabric on the bias,(45 degrees) what ever the width is you want your finished tape to be. Cut the tape 4x that size.  Press the tape in half (the long way) then press the raw ends in to the fold, this is double fold bias.  Bias goes around curves without puckering.

You can cut the elastic about 20".  Lap the pieces and use a safety pin to keep it together.  That way her Mother can adjust it easily.  If  Mom is able to use a needle and thread, she can sew the lapped elastic or just leave it pinned.
46  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: sleeves... and how to make them fit properly. on: July 23, 2007 02:03:17 PM
Years ago I started sewing sleeves in flat.  Just sew the shoulder seam.  Mark the armhole at the center (it may not be the shoulder seam, mark the center of the (top) of the sleeve.  You will probably need to sew a basting stitch from notch to notch on the sleeve.  Now, match the marking of each piece and pin(wrong sides together).  Pin at the ends of the armholes.  If you need to ease the fabric in do it now with the basting thread and pin.  Once the armhole seam is sewn you will need to clip the seam allowance up to a couple of threads from the seam, or you can also trim with pinking shears . Hope this helps.
