I haven't seen the book but was wondering what the dimensions of the bag were.  It does look big in the picture but I have a hard time gauging these things.

I'm very close to Downtown!
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: Need suggestions for a Girl Scout Carry-All bag... on: June 04, 2008 07:15:54 PM
I have done tons of Girl Scouting.  I think the recommendations that ladykluck gave are very good....as a leader you have to have those permission slips with you all the time.  I also suggest giving some thought to:  is this a bag to carry supplies to meetings, is it a bag that you will take on field trips or single day outings, or something else?  Another thing to consider...many people in the scouting community keep patches from events that they participated in on a jacket, blanket etc.  You might think about using the bag you make for this purpose.  I loved the experiences I had in scouting as a girl and adult, I hope you do as well.
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Crafters Block... on: June 02, 2008 05:49:01 PM
I sort of had a similar problem when I started with buttonholes.  On my machine (and perhaps with yours), you set the machine to do a button hole, then when you want to do another one, you have to flip the setting off of buttonhole and then back to again....basically telling the machine, I'm ready to start another one.  This was frustrating to me.  It did actually say this in my manual but it was very obtuse.  Perhaps this will help.

This is an interesting (and educational) thread.  Thanks for sharing!
6  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Re: Simplicity 4077 -- fitted button-front blouses on: July 02, 2007 08:30:10 PM
I wear shirts like this all the time and haven't seen one that I thought I had the skill to make.  I will certainly try this!  Thanks for the lead.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Knitted Digestive System - what every girl needs! on: May 08, 2007 07:23:43 PM
Thanks for whoever bumped this up.  I missed it the first time round and it is great!  I'm going to try to make one for my classroom.  The kids would get a huge kick out of it and it would totally help the kids learn the digestive system.  Thanks!

I teach science and we cover the heart and circulatory system.  This would be sooooo cool to have.  Perhaps I can learn to knit that well.  What do you need (skill wise?) to be able to do to make one of these?
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: teacher appreciation day on: May 08, 2007 07:01:42 PM
I'm a science teacher.  I know it's likely too late but perhaps a simple apron with a cell picture or the names of phylums etc. I have one I bought with the scientific method.  Put pockets on the front so she can wear it while doing labs and still have a place to stash the dry erase markers etc.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing Sewalongs / Re: Sew Along: "Sew What! Skirts" on: May 06, 2007 02:20:42 PM
Newtosewing-Good Job! I made the same skirt and had the same problem with it being a bit too big in the waist.  I am going to try and put in two tiny darts in the back to take it in.  I was so afraid I was going to end up with it being too small I was too generous in the ease.  I did learn from this that this is a disadvantage of making a side zipper.

Where did you get the fabric?  It's fun but not too loud for my work etc.
