Just spent 4.5 hours stitching this album cover art onto a shirt, should I border the pocket with red stitching too?
No. just complete the outer rectangle. Adding more stitching would detract from the high contrast visual effect that you've worked so hard to create. Nice idea, by the way.
It's very cute. I wouldn't stitch the border and leave it as-is.
I made a scarf some time ago as I couldn't buy one of the material and the length I wanted.
I'm thinking of redoing the stitching, though. :/
Yeah, you're right. It's near the middle seam, isn't it? Went over it with the sewing machine but it was a little too thick so the machine didn't take it well. Might just pull them out and re-do them by hand.
I really, really like this.
w2c shirt with a pocket cat?
knitted a circle scarf/cowl a while back. I've also made some random baskets to keep my shit in as well as some shitty DIY stenciled patches I've sewn on a crust bag. Next big project would probably be a knitting a chunky cropped sweater, but I still needa find a pattern or draft one myself.
I used some fabric I had lying around for a year, so not sure about the material. It's a bit of a tougher cotton. It might be poplin.
I think that's the secret, I think. Tougher fabrics sit better nd don't 'droop'. Plus, it's really warm. The stuff blocks wind as if it's nothing. Of all the scarves I've ever owned, this one is definitely the most useful.
I basically just cut off whatever width I wanted from the fabric. I had 4 strips of ~23cm in width and 150cm in length in the end, and sewed two 'sleeves' out of the four pieces. Zigzagged whatever fabric there was left to make sure it wouldn't fray. Then I folded them inside out.
Hardest part was joining those two sleeves together. My fabric sheet wasn't long enough so that's why there's a seam in the middle. I had to redo that around 5 times. I can't even remember how I did it.I was frustrated and I was happy when I did it right haha.
Lastly I sewed those sleeves shut from the outside.
I think the measurements of the thing are 20*300cm, respectively.
im thinking about cutting the hem off of my jeans the difference is my jeans stack.
i got the idea from that one guy that cut his jeans and was wearing that green leather jacket on the waywt.
i didnt save the pic though
Think of making your own cat. You can find a quality pocket tee shirt for cheap, get some acrylic paints, some brushes and you're set.
I'm looking at a pocket tee right now, and I'm thinking that I'll have to remove the stitching to temporarily remove the pocket. This is so that I can paint easier and cleaner. The stitching is simple enough to put back on.
Try it out.
This is a 2nd variation I designed I'm gonna start selling these and the patterns I made for different things on etsy
>any books or videos on learning how to use a sewing machine?
You say that like it's an ancient art only mastered by a few elders hidden in the himalayas or something. Go to youtube you moron.
