1  Texas / Texas: Central / Austin Crafters on: June 05, 2011 07:40:11 AM
I've been in Austin for a year now and have still yet to find any crafty friends. I'd love to meet anyone who does any kind of art or craft and just have craft + movie days once in a while and hang out. It'd be nice to make some friends in general. I sew, knit, and do bits and ends of everything really. I'm always open to learning how to do something new. Everything interests me, so let's teach each other new things and help each other stay inspired and crafting!

Also, I'm 19 if it matters.

Recently I bought a book filled with patterns and instructions, its really cute!
The only problem is that most of the patterns have to be enlarged to 120 percent or more..
I don't really want to go pay to use a copy machine every time I want to make something.
Is there some way I can do it at home with photoshop or some other program?
Thanks guys.

Hi guys~~
I've heard people mention about putting "weights" on skirts to keep them from flying up. Is there a certain thing to buy?
Thanks guys~~

How much fabric do you think I'd need to make this? Was it difficult?  ( 0.0)

What are you making? What do you mean by "stretch"? Is your fabric knit or woven? I think knit when I hear stretch, even though the cross grain of a woven fabric generally has a little tiny bit of stretch.

If you are working with a woven the grain line goes on the straight grain, parallel to the selvedge edge (the bound edge) the cross grain, is the grain that goes from selvedge edge to selvedge edge (perpendicular to the selvedge edge). Bias is found by created a 45 degree angle in between the straight and the cross grains.

In knit you want the stretch to go across your body, you want it to stretch around you, not up and down you.

It looks like you got an answer while I was typing, but since I wrote it I'll still post.

Well, I'm making a doll but the book said if I didn't get it right my doll would look chubby lol~~ Tongue
I'm working with jersey~ But I think I got it right! Thanks a lot though that helped me out with the woven part for future reference~

It should be the way it doesn't stretch, that's the grainline.

If the fabric stretchs, that's the bias.

Ahh thank you~~ ^_^

I don't understand.. When you line up the grainline arrow with the fabric should it be going in the direction that the fabric stretches or the way it DOESN'T stretch?
