Re: Enter to Win an Oliso Pro Smart Iron!

When I was in fashion design school, my teachers were sticklers for pressing. Every step of each project was critiqued and the first question asked was always "Did you press it?"

Now that I'm older, I've been inspired to sew again by Project Runway. Everything I learned in fashion design school has stayed with me through the years. I would love to own a reliable iron that doesn't spit and drool. I am constantly pressing AND all my every day clothes are ironed--I prefer the "just pressed" look.

Re: Oliso Pro Smart Iron Contest - Official Rules

When I was in fashion design school, our teachers were sticklers for pressing. We would have to get approval on each project and the first question asked was always "Did you press it?" I have been sewing since I was 12 years old, worked at a bridal shop, and had a dressmaking business. Project Runway inspired me to begin sewing again. Now I'm making lovely clothes for myself and others. I press constantly and all my clothes are ironed! I very much like the "just pressed" look.

Re: Make an Embellished, Denim Fold-Over Bag

The only thing that was clear on this bag were the instructions for cutting circles and the supply list, although I think I bought faux leather that I don't need.

Where is the on-line instructions to view? I think I 'm stuck with fabrics and no bag for a Christmas gift.

Where is the link for the how-to video? Do you reply to these comments?


Re: Make an Embellished, Denim Fold-Over Bag

I have been sewing for over 75 years but I, also, find this pattern confusing. And, The templates could be a lot larger. I had to get the magnifying glass out to read the dimensions even though I have no trouble reading small print without glasses. I'll make the bag but only because I have enough experience to make the pattern work for me.
