1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Starwars Diaper on: January 14, 2013 10:32:18 PM
Okay, so I'm due in May with my first, a girl. I realize how important it is that she grow up knowing about all of the nerdy things I love, so I've started the preparation for the indoctrination process with this.

The outside, all folded up and ready to go on baby. Note how it looks like a standard fitted diaper?

Wings unsnapped, to show the snaps across the front and the beautiful contrast between the outer flannel and inner terry:

Laid a bit flatter on the table. What is this? The inside looks strange!

Oh my! It unfolds totally flat, so the whole thing is only two layers thick when you wash/dry it!

I used the Quick Snap Flap Wrap pattern, in NB size, with added leg elastic Cheesy It's so neat! I love how many straight lines there are, it's so easy to not screw it up. Plus, using only woven fabrics made it a cinch! I definitely recommend this pattern.

The colors are truer in that one, aside from the orange that looks yellow. IRL it's just a basic orange.

The colors of the purple and gray are perfect there, but the rest look weirdly pink.

So, anyway, I'm making dice bags. I bought these fabrics yesterday at Joann (all this fabric plus five spools of thread for under $10!) and I want to make a few more bags from them. There is enough of each fabric to make two, except the blue swirl sky one that is only enough for one, and the orange which is enough for like...I don't know...12? A ton. It was a remnant lol. I also have solid black although I'm not excited about using it cause my cat laid on it and now it's all fuzzy, and my lint roller is mysteriously missing Sad

Help me pair them! What do you think would look best? For reference, this is what the bags look like note how it's reversible from one fabric to the other.

Well if you happen to be in the area ever, they should be for sale soon in Topeka and Lawrence KS! Cheesy

First test of a dice bag pattern I am working on Cheesy If I can work out the little kinks here and there, and get over my hatred of pinning/sewing curves, I will hopefully be selling these at some local conventions and gaming stores! Two stores have already expressed interest! The bag stands on its own, whether empty or full (these pics all show it empty), is fully reversible, and has the drawstring come out of the top edge instead of the side. The bottom is round so no corners for small dice to get lost in! What do you think?

Does anyone know how to make curves work out well without having to do this?
5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / What the heck are these attachment thingies? on: August 01, 2011 07:00:10 PM
So, I got a sewing machine with all kinds of neat attachments (including a seriously complicated pintuck foot that I can't wait to figure out) and in the box of attachments were these three...things...? They are thin metal, with a scroll at one end that somewhat resembles the scroll part on a rolled hem foot...anyone know what they might be?

Fixed it! Sorry about that, the file location changed slightly (everything on that site got put into one gigantic folder, so it added one level of names to the URL), and I hadn't found everything that needed updated yet. If you see anything else in my stuff that needs updated, PM me and let me know!!

Thanks Smiley

D: There's a mushroom house over there?!?!

And where does the path go after that? Is it just a random non-useful path?

Also, this is AMAZING and I've shown EVERYONE I KNOW in the past 5 minutes via email or messenger. You rock!

Thanks for the kind words and the laughter, everyone! It's been...what...3 or 4 years now? Yeah, I still haven't tried another quilting project  Cheesy I'm too scared I'll miss what it really looks like until the very end!

Ooh, thanks! Checking it out now!
10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Some serger questions on: January 08, 2010 10:24:53 PM
I got a serger for christmas!

I have some questions regarding using it. It's a Singer model # 14SH654 with differential feed. Yay!

First off, it came with two needles already in it and says to use 2022 unless it's an emergency, in which case I can use standard 2020 needles. I was planning on buying new needles soon from CTS USA but they don't seem to have the 2022 needles. Will it hurt the machine for me to use 2020s on a regular basis? I would SO much rather pay $11 for 100 needles than $5 for 5 needles!

Second, I am assuming I need ballpoint needles for knits just like on my regular sewing machine. Am I correct?

Third, I see people saying they use the serger to make ruffles. Is there a special attachment needed? I tried putting the differential feed up at 2.0 and it ruffled the fabric a little bit, but nowhere near the amount I can get from my ruffler foot on my regular machine.

Thanks in advance!
