I'm going to wear my club outfit for skating figures at regionals. I'm not to crazy about it but cost me $135 so I better get some use out of it.

Good luck! I think we'll be at the same regionals. I have no idea what the schedule is yet though. It will be my dd's first regionals.

I finished the beading on a dress I've been working on for my daughter...now if only we had a reason to wear it...I got the fabric on super clearance...and so I just made it cause I wanted to. The other dress is a skate dress I made my 1 yr old, it doesn't have trunks, because that makes it easier to change her diaper. I put a few sequins on this to act as sparklers (like reflectors on a bicycle), and make her easy to see. LOL.

your doing fine on the dresses, as she gets older and into competition you can add stones also for glitter. keep up the good work.

I cut some 90% polyester 10% lycra material. Does this unravel? If so, there is this liquid stuff thats glue like. WOuld that scratch my skin though?

I resewed up my padded shorts and the machine I borrowed didnt have a binding thing for the edges.

Got to get a sewing machine one day!

the weave of the fabric seems to be what determines how easily it might unravel. I ususally finish my fabric edges with a zig zag stitch. Most folks use a surger...but I don't have one, so a nice tight zig zag does the job well enough.
I picked up an awesome machine, a 731 Bernina, that was made in the 70's, and I got it on ebay for about $150...it's the bomb! I love it. I can even sew through leather with this baby.

Well, sewing machine is definitely in my list of things I want! But it may be a year or so before I can afford one. Skating seems to take any extra (not really lol!) cash for now.

But I guess I'll post in the out of topics forum when I get there on what type to get because I want something that can handle heavy materials too but not cost me an arm and leg.

But the machine I used isnt mine, its my brothers fiances. They are getting married THIS Sat., so um, dont think its a good idea to ask to use it again for awhile lol. So should I hand sew the seam with going around the material and through the sitch type of stitch? LOL, sorry if that didnt make sense at all. Just leave it or get that fray glue? So far its fine and I will only hand wash it.

stop fray works well. It has some give to it so it isn't like a band of rough superglue on your garmet but you can see it on some fabrics. If you use pinking shears (with a good zig zag stitch) it also helps prevent fraying

Default Working with Hot fix crystals...need some more imput

well, after searching this thread for needless to say time frame ...I have found it. I wanted to know if anyone has worked with these beauties on lame or organza? If so... how does one to then take them off of the fabric. Not so interested in saving the fabric once done but hearing the removing process is more my lines.


Anyone?

BUMP...I don't really know, I've only ever worked with sew on beads. I'm probaby the only one these days...but most of the moms at my rink just glue the beads on with some fabric glue of some sorts. But then there would seem to be one draw back to this technique...removal and re-use seems a lot more complicated.

Interesting question, anyone else know?

When you are done with the outfit, soak it in goo gone and the stones fall off.

you can also try clean it and most of the stones will come off or do that type of thing at home from what i heard the ladies at the rinks saying.
