Re: Reusable Shopping Bags

These bags, are terrific. I tried making some a year or two back...but I never got around to it. They are unique.

I went shopping the other day looking for a way to use my paper sacks, and shopping at the "Dollar Tree" around here and they had these "paper poketbook style gift boxes, somewhat like a pocket. (you put small gift or flowers inside. Iam making up some of these for my "Money or gift card presentations. Has anyone seen this "paper pocketbook/purse? Kreativelady.


Re: Video: Making and Using a Muslin

I have a new lady in my class that wanted me to teach her the art of designing a suit jacket. I planned on using muslin for the draft pattern before I use the material she has chosen for the jacket? I plan on taking apart an old suit jacket and practice. Any advice on this technique would be welcome. Thank you keativelady.

Re: Simplicity Pattern Collection from Threads

Hi, Just finished reading article for making the perfect garment for different shapes. I believe they referred it to a manican-style body using tight fitting material. It peaked my interest. Teaching children to make simple outfits for their projects appeals to me. Sizes are`always unpredictible, and outfits are time consumung getting each one to fit properly. Where is this information for this source to order? dancersimage.

Re: Smooth Curved Seam

Kreativelady again.

ps. I have (3) pattern pieces for this peasant blouse. I have constructed the sleeves, and about to attach the "extra" curve from the sleeve.I have tried to fit it in the dress, but can't seem to understand the directions to add this piece... I attached the 2 pices in the arm area.

The pattern shows a seam on neck for eleastic, plus elastic is also added to the puff sleeve. This does not look right to me. Again I appreciate this help. kreativelady.
