How to Make Gloves In this instructable, I will show you how to draft your own glove pattern and make a pair of gloves. You can use this with any fabric, leather, vinyl, or similar material, stretchy or not. Hands are complicated 3D shapes with many degrees of freedom of movement. Gloves need to accommodate this and are as such more complicated than 2 pieces of hand-shaped fabric sewn together. SUPPLIES: For drafting: -duct tape (or something similarly flexible) -paper (preferably tracing paper or something similar) -a disposable glove (latex, nitrile, whatever you have on hand [HURHUR]) -a pencil -a permanent marker -sharp scissors For construction: -fabric -thread -pins -Fray-Check (optional, but nice to have) -a sewing machine and/or a needle and lots of patience

Make them into tags Once your ribbon is dry, grab some good fabric scissors and cut into lengths. These tags are folded over and the cut end is sewn into a seam. Make sure you cut enough room to fold your label in half! Grab an iron and make that fold nice and crisp, and tada! You've got a whole pile of hand-made, custom colored tags! Time to sew! If you are serging a seam, stick the tag into your fabric with the cut ends on the garbage-side of your blade. Happy tagging!
How To: Print On Fabric Printing on fabric is so much easier than I thought it would be! You start with some spray adhesive: Spray it onto a piece of cardstock and place your fabric on top, being sure to get out as many bubbles as possible. (I recommend spraying the adhesive outside.) Then cut down the fabric so that it is the exact same size as your cardstock. Place it in your printer with the fabric facing whichever side gets the ink. You now have printed fabric! Just peel it off of the cardstock. And you are ready to use your new printed fabric!

Full Demonstration of all LilyPad components The LilyPad Electronic Platform is an electronic platform designed to be easily sewn into fabric using conductive thread, which provides designers freedom from the traditional construction method of soldering. The LilyPad consists of 3 sensors (temperature, light, and acceleration), a button board, and 4 kinds of output devices: a tri-colored LED, a white LED, a sound board, and a buzzer board. This Instructable shows you how to construct a full demonstration of the LilyPad's functions. When discussing soft circuit components, especially when talking to those unfamiliar with electronics, it's extremely useful to be able to point to a physical device demonstrating how components connect to another and their possible functionality. The video below demonstrates all the functionality of all components.
Paperbag Ensemble Dress - Patterns Archive Please consult our size comparison table, our table of body measurements and the "Patterns" section of our FAQs before you download and print a pattern. Paperbag Ensemble Dress Design by jens / Pattern by Your Style Rocks! Finally, here is the pattern for the design that jens submitted as her winning entry in our "Sunday, lovely sunday" contest - we think it turned out great! The fabric we chose for the dress is rather stiff - if you want the paperbag effect to be more prominent you should look for a smoother, flowing type of fabric. Following jens' design, we combined top and skirt to make this a dress, but if you are an experienced sewer you could always modify the pattern to have separate pieces. Detailed sewing instructions for this pattern are available here. Download the pattern:
EGGS FOR YOU... Assalam o alaikum....... Do like eggs???? -- Regards, Kimono Coat The artist Photo: The artist Inspired by a love of crazy quilts, I pieced different navy and brown Japanese cotton prints onto a muslin base and covered the seams with navy soutache braid which I knotted at intervals to make it more visually interesting. The braid was attached by hand with a pick stitch spaced a quarter-inch apart. The lapel is a remnant of navy matelasse that I've had for years, but it was too narrow to do anything with--until I discovered it was perfect for the kimono! On the back I created a detail with the soutache, again to create a bit of visual interest. Please visit my Etsy shop to see some of my other work.

Decorate a suitcase? [Archive] Has anyone had luck with decorating a fabric suitcase? Stickers don't stick and the suitcase for my grandson needs a little "magic". Will a transfer melt the fabric? Any ideas will be appreciated. DH here.... (no, I'm not a mom as the user name would suggest :lmao:) Anyway - we purchased a decent set of luggage this year to accompany us on our annual trip to Disney (and wherever else our trips may take us). We just took our first trip with the luggage and it held up well (the patches and luggage). Put a block of wood in the luggage pocket under where the patch will go. Set the patch on and decide where you want it (then remove the patch and set aside until you heat the fabric in the next step). Put a small towel over the case and heat the towel (and the case under it) with an iron. Remove the towel and place the patch where you want it. Put the towel back (over the case and patch) and iron the towel again (hold the iron in place is fine) for about 30 seconds. My Carry on Bag. Michael
