11  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: Starting out with a website on: November 15, 2004 08:53:31 AM
i have an extremely fast internet connection, yet it loaded really slow. on the felt bag page it never even loaded the whole image of the individual bags. like april cocaine said, i think it's a little heavy also. the color scheme is great, really refreshing. i would just try to make the products more of the focus, they're overwhelmed with the large solid images.

13  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / molly ringwald! on: October 21, 2004 06:48:12 PM
I'm going to be Molly Ringwald for Halloween because I've absolutely adored her since the early 80's.
It seems like every Halloween I want to be her, and I just recently dyed my hair red, so it's the perfect timing.
Someone I know thinks that no one will get it, so I want to know:

what do you all think are major characteristics I should incorporate into my costume to make it recognizable?

Thanks so much for any input!
14  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / drawing fluid method=oh nooooooo!!!!! on: September 20, 2004 08:49:25 AM
I've been attempting to do silkscreening using my speedball kit. I've been using the drawing fluid method, and am having no luck. Whenever I apply the screen filler over the drawing fluid, the drawing fluid just disolves. And all of my hard work goes down the drain, literally, as I then have to wash everything out of the screen. It is really driving me crazy. This happens even after letting the drawing fluid dry for days.

Does anyone have any tips for me? I'm thinking of maybe spraying the screen filler onto the screen, using a pump spray bottle? Maybe this will be better than using the sqeegee (sp?). As it will be less agitation to the drawing fluid?

15  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sturdy fabric??? on: September 17, 2004 08:40:58 AM
you should just do a simple search on google or yahoo for "cotton twill fabric".
i did that once and came up with tons of retailers with great fabric.
also, at places like joann's, look in the home decor fabrics. i've found the best thick cottons in the upholstery section.cotton twill is usually what i use to make durable, yet soft totes. and they usually carry it in lots of colors.

NoPopNoStyle, did you use interfacing on your wallet?
Does it matter how thick the outside fabric is?
I know with the 'store-bought' leather wallets, they seem to just slip into your back pocket.
I'm wondering if fabric wallets may be too floppy for you guys to slip into your back pockets easily?
Do you think it would be better to have a flap to fasten the wallet closed, or to just let it fold?
This is awesome, asking guys about crafts!

I am planning to make some nifty wallets for my guy friends and customers, as they are requesting them.
Of course if I ask what they want them to look like, they have no idea.
So, if I were to embroider icons onto the outside of the wallet, what would be 'not too girly'?
Also, can anyone measure their bi-fold wallet for me? I don't know the dimensions of one.

you might also look into getting the pint containers of paint. you get so much, and it works out to being cheaper than individual tubes. also, as a painter it just seems so much more encouraging to have this big jar of paint sitting there. you're an awesome sister by the way! oh yeah, get her a color wheel. when you learn to mix your own colors you only need to buy the primaries.
20  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help needed with sewing machine problem. on: September 10, 2004 07:48:54 PM
what kind of fabric are you sewing? make sure to match your fabric to the correct type of needle. if you're sewing denim, you need to use a denim needle, and so on. if that's not it, and it's your tension, then it might take some time to figure it out. it seems every machine is different with tension, you just have to kinda test and see. my manual has been of no help when learning tension settings. just take some scraps of fabric and get to know your machine. sounds kinda goofy, but it'll save you alot of heartache in the future.
