Welcome a new baby girl to this world with a beautiful handmade card. Use symbols associated with little ones, like a cube, bear and duck, and bring some joy to the parents of this bundle of joy. You can also use this idea for a little boy. Just change the colors to hues of blue.
Old wool like blankets make great filler or batting for quilts, especially the scratchy ones.
I'm upcycling an UnderArmour shirt and I can't get my sewing machine to sew it. I can't get the thread to catch more than maybe one stitch. It works fine on other fabric, but not on this material. I'm considering using another fabric as a "catcher" fabric, I guess you can call it.
I am looking for patterns for the Texas Longhorns, any suggestions where I can get any? I have looked almost everywhere and can't find any.
I have a very involved dragonfly I'm about to start. My cloth is tea stained aida cloth. I count 14 within each inch so I'm assuming it's 14 as apposed to 11, 18, or 24 correct? Also can I just fold the cloth to find the middle starting point or am I gonna have to do math to figure a starting point?
I dyed a white nylon dress yellow, wore it twice, and then noticed it had tiny orange spots where apparently the dye didn't blend completely. I washed it and hung it to dry. Then I used a toothbrush to lightly scrub in a 1:3 mixture of Dawn and peroxide on each spot.
I have an autograph of John Lennon's, which came as part of an autograph book I purchased. A local store tells me it's likely "real". Now, one of my favourite Beatles songs is, "Old Brown Shoe". Last week I found a very old (1930s) Brown leather shoe on my shoemaker's bench and got it for next to nothing.
What sizes of pots do you recommend for making this feature? The pots that I have looked at stack too low down on each other.
If I decoupage a napkin onto a table cloth, how can I seal it so that it can be washed without coming off? Any advice would be appreciated.
I have quilt shop quality cottons that I need to de-stash and donate. They have been pre-washed. I need a group in Indianapolis or Fishers Indiana.
My girl friend used to make flannel fleece blankets for me all the time, the knot tie type where she would purchase two types of fabric. Now that she is gone, I went to make one on my own and I noticed the price of fabric is really high.
I have been making birdbaths using vases, glasses, bowls, plates, etc. I'm in the process of making one using purple glassware, which is somewhat difficult to find. I did find a vase that matches perfectly, however, it is plastic. Will this work? Any experience with using plastic with the glass?
I am trying to layer mod podge over collector baseball cards on a table. Do the layers ever dry hard enough to actually use the table? The bottle says wait 20 minutes. I've been waiting more than an hour.
I am trying to find the directions to make crosses out of bread ties. I have seen them on line, but there are no instructions. Can anyone offer any help?
I know all people who sew have "family attachments" to certain brands and since there are many who can't afford "brand new". I am suggesting that when you shop for a new (different) machine, and I have had many great ones in my 60 odd years of sewing, be sure to find one with the manual.
I have some tall Pringles cans. I saved them for a specific purpose, but the church is not able to use them. I hate to toss them in the trash. Any ideas as to craft uses would be wonderful. I will be using 3 for bird seed feeders, but that leaves over 50!
Sometime back people inquired if there was a manual for #601 knitting machine. I found mine and would like to share. It is in Japanese, but has easy pictures and list of parts. Brother sewing company made it and the machine plus instructions have been stored away till recently.
I have done many cross stitch projects in the past, but I have never done a blanket before. I have just found out I am going to be a grandmother so I decided to do a baby blanket. It is quite a large project and I am running into some problems.
I'm looking for the Lee Ward Mills Cinderella Slipper pattern or a photocopy of the pattern. I have the mold and a partial crocheted shoe that my mother started, but the pattern has been reduced to crumbs and unreadable.
What can I use in a glass fish bowl to put a couple fake fish in that would turn solid and clear to look like water with fish in it?
