I do the same thing sort of, well I draw a perfect, complete body and photocopy it but then I usually end up tracing a photocopy because I like to erase my lines and such. I made a nice jacket outline but made the mistake of coloring it with markers out of convienience... it looks ok but i'm gonna have to redo it in better colors and on stiffer paper. I got an idea to print images of fabrics or other things like animal print and trace some parts out of that too, or use actual fabric but I haven't gotten a nice book yet. Does anybody know how I can get or make a book with stiff pages? I don't want to use a scrapbook because it has those plastic things.

Cardstock, perhaps? You can cut it to your prefered size (if you buy large sheets).

Never try to teach a pig to sing; it wastes your time and it annoys the pig.

But then, How do I bind it in a book nicely?

I don't keep a notebook.  I generally have fabric laying around, so when I have an idea, I make a rough or mini version.  If the first one turns out nice, then there we go!

I would suggest you keep a notebook, though, if you don't have stuff just laying around.

 Not all scrapbooks have the plastic things... You can also get stiff paged photo albums for sticking photos in with those little photo corner things. They usually come in "natural" and black. Another thing you can do is buy a pack of cardstock and have your local copy place bind it for you. It'll end up with a spiral binding. Good luck!

I have two "Visual Diarys" but I always forget about them and have too much going on to do anything in. One just has doodles and fun things and photos that inspire me stuck in, the other just has lots of magazine cut-outs of things I like, and what I like about them.
I like to design clothes but I can't draw very well at all.  Well I can draw the clothes alright but the people I draw them on always look retarded. 
I usually use a drawing template, which I think is fine, because then everything does look the same and whatnot...however, I went for an interview a few months ago to get into a bachelor of Design course, and got told that I need to learn to draw figures properly. Sad

Thanks headspider!

Drawing is fairly easy, you just need time an patience. I've been drawing all my life, so I can't really tell you exactly how I learned but I do know that when it comes to drawing something new you just have to think about it and look carefully at what looks realistic and if not, how to improve it. You could also trying usinga visual aid to learn how to draw people, for example, trying to draw from a picture in a magazine. The only problem with using a visual aid is that you may get caught up on trying to make it look exactly the same when really you're only using it as a guideline. I think it's easier for me to draw as i go, and when drawing a personi usually start with the shoulders and neck, then the hips and the legs, then I go back and do the arms and the head because they tend to be the hardest things for me to make in proportion with the rest of the body. You just have to figure out what your drawing style is and what you can doto improve it.

This thread got absolutely lost.  Cheesy Anyway Idrew a couple of these last night. However, I made the mistake of drawing them back to back, so the dots on the grey shirt aren't actually supposed to be there. These aren't my final pages, by the way, I just draw them in an old sketch book I have because the paper is nice and stiff. I plan to cut them out and put them into a good book, and on that page leave room for information and a picture of the final product (if I do get there). These shirts are meant to be crocheted and/or knit, because I don't exactly sew good enough to mess with sewing seriously.  Smiley
