1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / LOTS of A-line skirts! A bit pic chubby on: February 06, 2011 05:06:02 AM
I have been working my fingers to the nubbins trying to get ready for my first big show, http://funkyfinds.com/events/springfling/2011/.  I am going to take all OOAK skirts.  These are some of the a-lines I have started making.  Some I am taking.  Some I am keeping.  Some have a small imperfection and I am selling before hand.  Some are applique.  Some are machine embroidered.  Some are apron skirts.  Most are baggy and bustled in the back with a drawstring waist to make it fit many sizes....

I have been working my tail to the ground to get ready for http://funkyfinds.com/events/springfling/2011/!!  First year as a vendor and I am trying to take all 100% OOAK, no duplicates!!  So excited!  So, I am making circle skirts up the yingyang.  Some are new fabrics, some are upcycled.  Some I have that one minor glitch so I am selling before the show.  Some are so awesome I have to keep them.  Some are plain, some are intricate.  Hope you enjoy Cheesy

3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Where do you buy your business cards? Need help!! on: October 09, 2010 11:04:19 AM
Alright Crafty Folks... I have a business card dilema.

I know of Vistaprint.  I know when I googled "business cards" 328 bizillion sites came up. 

Who do you use to print your cards?  Is there any particular reason why?

Do you have particular company you would advise against?

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Wooden & Bamboo Purse Handle Suppliers??? on: September 28, 2010 06:01:49 PM
I did a search or two and didn't seem to come up with anything.  Does anyone have any good wooden / bamboo purse handle suppliers?  I am looking for the circle and oval ones.  I don't really want to go to Hobby Lobby & Joann's and pay an outrageous price Cheesy

5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Need help finding a pattern that I lost... was wrote in foreign language?? on: September 26, 2010 07:09:38 AM
There is a bunch of children patterns by a designer.  They were wrote in a foreign language and translated into English.  There were dresses, skirts, jackets... Some of the patterns were SUPER fancy shmancy.  Some were somewhat basic. 

Does anyone have ANY clue what I am talking about???

I am so frustrated.  I have a skirt that I made for my daughter out of said group of patterns.  The problem is that all of the patterns (I purchased 6) have gone missing.  I am so bloody frustrated!!!!

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Kick Pleats... I need help! on: April 11, 2010 11:55:07 AM
Is it me, or is there a lack of tutorials/videos/help on the beloved kick pleat for clothing?  I found one site with fuzzy pictures and not the greatest tute.  Can anyone point me in the right direction? 
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My New Twirly Skirt... is too big :'( on: August 27, 2008 07:16:55 AM
I just got a job working for Viking Sewing Machines inside Joann's.  I'm pretty stoked.  I figured I would wear clothes that showcase the machines ability as sort of a selling point.  So, I made my newest twirly skirt. When grabbed the elastic for the waistband, I grabbed the wrong piece and now the skirt is too big Sad   I love the fabrics and just wanted to show off how awesome this line of fabric is!!!  It is CottonCandy by Sweetwater for Clothworks Fabrics which I got from the local quilt shop.

8  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / "It's Never too late" Quilt on: August 18, 2008 12:32:15 PM
After years upon years of the weight yo-yo, my girlfriend has decided to go in for the lap band procedure.  To celebrate the beginning of the new Brett, and her new lifestyle, her being able to go outside and play with her toddler, I was commissioned by some friends to make her a quilt.  "It's never too late to be what you might have been...." 

Close up of the embroidery

The only "Overhead" picture I took which shows off the attic window the best is in the unfinished stage

Lastly, a close-up of the individual square

This was my first attic window.  I was surprised how relatively easy it was to make!  I stitched in the ditch the "window frames" and free form quilted on the white areas.  I've never made a giant quilt before!  I'm very pleased with how it turned out! 
Thanks for looking!!!!  Cheesy
9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Wrap-N-Mat... how to make one of my own? Vinyl Question? on: August 15, 2008 09:43:12 AM
I saw this handy dandy site for the Wrap-n-Mat.  It's a reusable sandwich holder that turns into a little placemat for the kids to use for school.  With the first day rapidly approaching, I was really hoping to make a few of these.  Is the vinyl that you can buy at Joanns appropriate for this sort of thing?
Has anyone used the fusible vinyl before? If so, does it hold up?
Would it be better to use fusible or stitch in?
Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas about the construction of this glorious little reusable sandwich holder?Huh

THANKS!!  Grin
10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Mmmm..... Blueberry Jam on: August 01, 2008 08:18:07 AM
I don't really sit down much. If I'm not working with or playing with the kids, I'm cleaning and in between the kids and cleaning, there are the crafts.

Last night, I put the kids to bed and pulled out 6 cups of fresh blueberries. It was time...

Take room temperature berries and smush the daylights out of them. Add 4 cups of sugar and bring slowly to a boil.

Once the berries start to boil, turn up the heat, and boil until it reaches the gelling point (when the jam sheets off a spoon held away from the steam).

Ladle it into hot jars, attach lids, and stick into boiling water making sure to have an inch or two of water over the top of the jars.

Boil jars in water for 15 minutes. Remove. Let sit for 24 hours. Check the seals on the jar by pushing the center. Hide the jars from the kids so they have no idea you have made such a special treat.

The following morning, wake kids up early exclaiming about the special surprise and they have to get out of bed before the breakfast train leaves. When they sit down half asleep in the chairs, present them with toast smothered in jam!!!
