PROJECTS

Only a few days left to finish this months group project and quilt block!

If you’ve made anything make sure to post it, i haven’t been online for long lately but i do sign in to check my messages and notifications, so if you tag me in the post with the @ sewing-circle function I’ll see it.

If you’ve already made something and i haven’t reblogged it that means i haven’t seen it, so you can either reblog it and tag me directly in the post or you can message me the link to it.

I made my dad a cushion thing for his storage bench. It’s kind of baggy and I might sneak it back out of my dad’s house to fix that, but everyone has at least pretended to like it so far :P

Is it a foam cushion? I have a larger one for my dogs and it was a pain in the ass to make a cover for, i stitched it shut so i didn’t have to take it off to fix it again :P

Disclaimer: This is not my own idea; I got the tip from the lovely Elentari-liv, who was kind enough to share her technique with me. This is only showing the basics I’ve used to knit the scales, not how to make any certain piece.
Also, keep in mind that I’m still a beginner at knitting. I’ve been doing it for approximately two weeks.
What you’ll need:
circular knitting needles
yarn
small scales
You’ll probably want to choose a yarn close to your scale colour, or one that complements it (I used a contrasting one here to make things easier to show). You may have to experiment a bit with the yarn gauge and size of the needles. I ended up using gauge three yarn and size six needles after some testing. Larger needles widened the gap between scales, so that the yarn was visible in between, which I didn’t want, and thicker yarn made the scales stick out too much as opposed to hanging. It looked like I was knitting a very ruffled dragon.
Scales can be purchased from The Ring Lord, with multiple choices of colour and material. I’ve experimented with both aluminum and steel; the steel seems to hang better because of its weight, but it all depends on what you need for your project!
(I’m putting the actual process under a read more because I do have a lot of photos.)

I’m gonna go ahead and put this under the resources tag for reenactors, cosplayers, Rennies and SCA-ers!

Group Project : June/July
I’m going to change it up and place this projects for the next two months as it can be quite a time consuming depending on what you choose to make.
What you do is up to you, it can be a shirt, skirt, top, dress, scarf, hat, anything. If you’re working on a cosplay that requires you make an article of clothing it counts, if you’re using this to finish a project you’ve been avoiding it counts. If you’ve had a tutorial saved in your favourites for ages that teaches you how to make a skirt that you’ve been too chicken to make, it counts as long as you make it!
Any kind of clothing you make counts.
I’m not going to include a massive list of tutorials because everyone’s taste and preference is different, i could find a million skirt tutorials that are useless if you don’t wear them. So go ahead and find your own if there’s nothing here to interest you, these are mainly going to be ones I’ve already got up on the blog and pins i have saved.
Stretchy pencil skirt
Cowl draped infinity dress
Maxi dress
Elastic waist skirt
Midi circle skirt

25 dress & skirt tutorials

July - Diamonds

Link 1 | Link 2

You can use either tutorial but i think the first one is a bit more descriptive. If you used a quarter inch seam allowance last time make sure you use it again. I spent ages trying to find the name for this block and the only ones i could find were HST diamond and The depression block, so if you find any other tutorials under those names that work better for you go ahead and use them.

I look forward to seeing what you guys come up with, make sure you tag me in any posts relating to the project with @ sewingcircle (Without the space)

The ‘Something you’ll wear' project is still going this month as well, so if you've made any item of clothing it counts towards it. Also if anyone knows how i could make block pictures like the one above, let me know. I don't like pulling pictures from other peoples websites to add onto my post even though i always link back to them, i need something that i can throw a block together on easily and for free.

Just over a week left for this one!

POPPYSEED FABRICS: Super easy tote bag tutorial..(updated)

This is a great super, fun and easy tote bag tutorial that you will want to make over and over again!

What you need is:

1/2 yd of 2 different fabrics
2 yds coordinating webbing
2 pieces batting, thin like warm and natural 15”x 10”

Feather's Flights : Basics of Sewing Machine Needles

NEEDLE SIZES
The European needle measurement is first, and the American needle measurement is second.
Very lightweight              70/10
lightweight                       80/12
medium weight                90/14
medium to heavy weight   100/16
heavy weight                    110/18
The size I use for almost everything is 80/12. When I’m sewing on jeans or thick fabric, I use 100/16 or 110/18. I would use the 70/10 for sheer fabrics…
