Re: Gathered tab top velvet panels

Angela,

I love love the way those collars look on the tabs. The panels look great.

Those pins - I can only imagine.

Re: A little help please

Just looking at the cones - could that be a long piece of fabric in a shallow half circle that was joined at the long straight side and let to fall.

I don't know why I think that. I have been working with ruffles made from spiral circles and it reminded me pf that.

Re: Many, many feet

Nonie, I got two different binding feet in my collection that I bought. I am going to try them out. I find I try new feet more when I am making stage costumes because nothing will be seen up close and if the stitching isn't absolutely perfect no one cares but me so I am more likely to try. On a Chri...

Re: What foot??

Good Question. Definitely stitch in ditch. The other one I use lots is the 1/4 inch foot, I think it might be called a piecing foot. I will have to think more about this question. I am going to add my Even Feed walking foot since I am sewing on velvet today. I find I don't use that foot as often as ...

Re: Many, many feet

Nonie, I just bought a set of 42 knock off brother feet. I had an Amazon gift card and gave them a try. The ones I tried have worked great. Some are duplicates of ones I have and they sure don't look any different. If I remember right the whole set was between 25 and 30 dollars. I have used a few th...

Re: Does this stuff have any value?

Sorry for your loss. I definitely second Kathy's recommendation. Ebay is the best place to check values on some of these things. It will probably be surprising what is worth money and what isn't. When I check prices I do the search two ways, first I just look to see if the item is currently for sale...

Re: The new old bath

Bunny, So much worth all the work you did. What a transformation. I absolutely love the gray sink base and I can actually see the difference in the tile colors depending on what is near it. That is what I love about iridescent things - they pick up the color they are near. Everything looks so crisp ...

Re: NEED HELP ORGANIZING

Shirley that looks like my set up but I love your labels. I can see through the bins so I don't have most of them labeled but those would be great.

Re: NEED HELP ORGANIZING

Nonie, the thing that helped me to get organized was to go to the dollar store and to Target and I bought loads of different size containers Lots and Lots of the shoe box sized containers and then some that are bigger than that - but not big bin size. It helped me to put buttons in one and eyelet in...

Re: Lettering sewing machine

There is a brother machine in Costco that does lettering. I think there might be two fonts. Nothing fancy, just lettering stitched out. It is also a regular sewing machine.

Re: would you

I like the black. Maybe it is because we are in the North but we do put black on little kids. Many Christmas dresses are black - black velvet, black taffeta, dressy fabrics but I think we might see as many black as other colors. Maybe not as often on really little babies but kids around here wear bl...

Re: Dress and matching hanger.

Love the dress! And how nice to have a hanger to match. Great job.

That is a good style, I have a similar dress and it is very comfortable and flattering.
