    Making a Corset

    Started · Last post ·

    I can only assume, you cut all parts of lining, interfacing and shell fabric, glue them together, sew the seams and sew on the bone casings on top of the seam allowances. At least i know that there is such a workmanship even though i didn´t heard of that double-sided glue interfacing yet. Where did you get it and what´s the name? Happy

    Tattoos

    Started · Last post ·

    i have one and a sixth currently ;) The first was really small, i have four bats flying behind my right ear. The second one is still in progress, my first appointment was last week, five more will follow till june 2013. At the moment i have two roses at my upper back/shoulder blades, one looks like it´s roughly drawn with pencil and has antlers, the other one is shaded really fine on one half and fades out to a "join-the-dots" game on the other half. Inbetween is a lot of shading and some more bats flying. It took three and a half hours to make it and i have to say i was surprised it didn´t hurt more! i was relieved when it was over because the last ten minutes it started getting worse, but it wasn´t really bad at all! What was really annoying was that foil you get afterwards and that it was permanently itching for a week...

    A lot of clients of my tattoo artist use an anesthesia balm (don´t know if that´s the real term for it) that makes the skin numb for some time so they can handle it better and he can work a bit longer. maybe that´ll help?

    Anyone watching the euro cup?

    Started · Last post ·

    i watch the games with germany involved, but since they don´t play very well or in other words the games are sometimes really boring, i´m happy we watch it with friends and/or family! It´s thousand times better than watching alone or just with my boyfriend!

    Most times we have a barbecue before the game starts. The boys are sitting right in front of the tv and scream a lot, getting angry with players, with the referee, with the coach etc... i´m always sitting with the ladies Happy we watch the first minutes and start chatting and drink prosecco with strawberries after a while Happy though we´ll be happy when germany scores!!

    i really enjoyed the games of the spain national team last world cup, but i have the feeling that several big teams lack creativity and enthusiasm this euro!

    what i can´t stand is the hype here in germany, nearly everything edible you can buy is shaped like a football or has at least a name referring to the euro!! and i don´t like the cars that are decorated with a thousand flags or the fans that block the main road by sitting on it because germany won and now you can sit on the road and the police is standing nearby taking photos of it...

    Studded Leggings?

    Started · Last post ·

    haha, i made the black and red striped dress!!! sorry, that i can´t add anything that helps, i was just excited to see my dress i made aaaages ago Happy though, the suggestions look great, the draped-like, long tops that you can get everywhere right now (mean that in a positive way) are perfect for that!

    How would I go about making this?

    Started · Last post ·

    The lace that is used on the second one is stretchy, if yours is too, maybe you can just take a tank top and trace the pattern and draw in the dividing seam at front (if you like). the layer underneath is the same pattern, just crop the top off.

    if the lace doesn´t have these vertical embroideries you can attach a circle skirt or a half circle skirt.

    How can I modify this t-shirt?!

    Started · Last post ·

    well, it would work if rawr rawr wants the print to be upside down, margarita Happy

    maybe have a look at whatthecraft.com, there are some cool things.

    does the shirt fit you around your hips? if so, you can cut of the sleeves and top and attach the upper part of another tank.

    i like Emmyann´s idea, i´ll try that Happy and monika reminded me that i wanted to make an one-shoulder top... it never stops... Happy

    I don't understand the fake plugs...

    Started · Last post ·

    do you want to tell me you can study piercing and that soon to be doctors have something like a course for it?! it´s not even a job that requires real training nor is it a degree or something!!!

    If you want to become a piercer you just have to declare yourself as one, go to a studio and ask for it or if you wanna own a studio buy a trade licence!! If you want to become a good piercer you study the anatomy of the human body very well! The apprentices of my piercer even have tests, just written by my piercer but better than nothing.

    How many "accidents" do doctors do, they can also hit a nerve or something, you can read it nearly daily in newspapers, but piercers are more used to deal with certain nerves/veines in common piercing placements, i don´t say they´re flawless! I think doctors in "medical centres" have better and more important things to do than piercing someone. They don´t do it very often or if they do it more often i can imagine it´s because of financial reasons. also, they think they´re qualified for it because they have some degree and because they´re docotrs people think they´re trustworthy what makes it even more "dangerous" and for me in personal obnoxious to go there!

    don´t want to add fuel to the fire, but as a proud owner of four intact and "ready to go to normal when jewelry is gone" stretched earlobes i can only support miezekatze´s opinion.

    There´s a significant difference between professionals of medicine, phds and all people you mentioned, Dizzy, and a professional piercer! To go to a doctor for a piercing is the worst thing you could do because they know nothing about the process at all, they did not study "piercing", some declare bodymodification as something wrong, something unnecessarily done to the human body hence they will judge in a totally different way. If you want another, more concrete point: placement and jewelry issues, i´ve seen some people that went from a doctor straight to my piercer in hope she can rescue the disaster the doctor called piercing!

    To complete this, don´t do it if you don´t like it, be open for other opinions.

    Sergers! Any techniques to share?

    Started · Last post ·

    well, i never thought about any more special techniques you can do with a serger. you named the basic ones and if somebody on here knows any special things you can do with a serger i´m curious too!! the only thing i coud think of now, my machine has something like a fake coverlock stitch but i didn´t figure out how it works yet because everytime i try it, it finish the edge of the fabric but it is supposed to not sew the edge but in the middle of the fabric... btw, what is a ruffling foot? i never saw that, i ruffle with different tensions on the threads.

    Sewing machine dropping stiches, any ideas why?

    Started · Last post ·

    do you use the same type of thread for both top and lower thread? sometimes my sewing machines is "annoyed" because i used two different types and leaves out stitches. it can also happen that your neede size isn´t good with the thread, maybe the thread is too thick and the needle too thin or other way round.
