Tools of the trade…What you really need is not this…. Review of my favorite stores latest add

Sew Beautiful
scissors

Do I really need all these?

I look at this and think yummy. But wait a minute I already learned that lesson. Use what you have like the Mimi taught ya. And what about all the folks here around me trying to make a living? Now this on-line store IS my hands down favorite and if I order I do it from them. But I wait for the big sales.There are some free shipping deals here but only a couple may be worth you time as a beginner or intermediate sewing enthusiast.
Scroll to the bottom of the page to see the add. I tried to remove all the jib-jab.
If …I ordered what their expert is saying… I would have spent all this :
Tools:$147.48
Other stuff:$ 501
That is $ 648.48!!! with free shipping woooo hooo!
I  wish I had had some reviews when I started this deal years ago. I’m such a sucker when you talk about “professional looking” finished products. Lets face it here, a professional couture seamstress are on SALARY (like gets paid not by the piece) and this stuff is provided.  Not the AVERAGE sewer now is she…took me a while to figure THAT out.
Holy mollie folks.
I tried this pen. It does not last long, especially compared to the basting glue for the PRICE. Spent 6.25
Seam tape is also cheap and snipped into tiny squares I have used it on a wedding dress with 50 yards of silk ribbon to be placed before there was basting glue.
The small scissors I got on sale at a local store 5.25
The big scissors ARE a good buy for the quality but I use the small pair so “no go”
The scallop templet? really? I use a piece of card board and draw it out with a pencil and a string and then cut different ones or they come free in sewing magizines.  To make it nice ,I use a piece of scrap paper that I “misprinted” from my printer. Glue it on and write the information on it. Cost about an hour for 6 of them in different ones.
Press and shape board. A definite need for heriloom and lace work. But I got mine on sale at local store for 13.99 (not on sale). Cutting board on one side. soft pad on the other. Us it for a gazilion things.
To lace shape. Trace the loop design on the board on misprinted paper like the design like on the board. Do a web search for the pattern. Stab pin it to my cheap board and viola…saved 28 Bucks and have all sorts of other designs and options.
Uhmmm yeah, another tube turner. not for me.
Construction books, like if you have more than 5…check your magazines or the web. It’s a money grabber.
Fabric? Holey cow. She who dies with the most stash wins comes to mind. I got about 12K of stuff I haven’t used yet. Do love the MP cotton but still haven’t used the 4  pieces of 2 yards from 2 years ago. (hint order on 50% of days or the free shipping days. You CAN count on MP for quality, fast delivery. She is the ONLY one I trust for online orders)
Pleated fabric, good deal.
After pleater, spool holder, thread  and time learning how to use the thing. I figured I’d wasted about $250. Go for the $10, or contact your local stores. There are local folks that need the cash and will do it for you on fabric you have for the same price.
Digital embroidery. So wish I had the funds to do that. I looked at several over the last year. Ends up being like buying a B.O.A.T. (Bale out another thousand) or buying a car. Machine-check, programs-check, needles-check, more thread-check, classes-check….
I have 3 local ladies that bid for my work. They need the cash and I DON”T need to spend all that cash and loose my mind on yet another project. I KNOW I have never met a craft I didn’t like but scattered is scattered.
Those grip scissor are on my wish list for another century. At last count I have 5 pares of large, 4 pairs of small, 3 seam rippers, 3 exacto knife thingys with different shapes and 2 different electric shears. I use the same 3 daily. The electric shears worked for about 1 year. Now I can’t get blades anymore.
Still looking for a decent pair. I learned how to use the rotary cutters (3 different kinds..I told you I have tried a LOT of things). I plan my cuts better and use things more efficiently using those and it is faster than the electric shears.
I love this store, the lady has always been about helping and supporting sewers in the industry rather than herself. In return Karma blessed her. I have actually written her about some of the stuff they are saying you NEED. Also about her recent sell out to another company (my opinion) as I am getting stuff from another company I did not order nor ask for.
No response and that is okay. I realize her job now is to push these nice ladies ideas as is her style, but please young sewers, don’t spend your hard earned cash on some of this stuff.  Sewing is an amazing thing and getting discouraged is easy. Email me if you have questions about what you REALLY need. It is more about techniques not TOOLS.

Ready set go, how I do it at warp speed with the Gaelig

It’s 6 am ….and it has been one weird ol’ week. What with the stalkers and accidents…  and the cat whose eyes swelled shut and the other that hurt her leg AGAIN.

Luna pre car chasing phase

Hubby got a new job and Daughter is on her way with the grand babies so the next 7-10 days is going to be a wild ride! I have got to MOVE!

Here’s the music I listen to, while I’m going warp speed…

These are also connected to my Facebook sight.

Warning, don’t click if you are trying to relax!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdO-JqtDPTw&feature=related

I call it the Bonnet song

I don’t have time to be discouraged or overwhelmed! I just turn on that Julie Fowlis and GO! Can’t sit still listening to THAT can you?

Here is a place to just keep listening:

http://www.myspace.com/juliefowlis

Now which direction do I need to go while I’m dancing about?

I need to baby proof the house, clean the carpets, muck the Rose garden, Stock the pantry, Fight back the ironing sprawl, bath the cats, change the sheets and was all the slip covers…. YEAH, RIGHT! HAHAHAHAHAH.

Note to self, Glass breaks,,,remove it.

I have found an actual FLAW in the Lady Iris Jean way of doing things this week. Grandbabies are new to this house and as I started the pr-cleaning prep … I had flash backs of Daughter at age 1 at Lady Iris Jean’s house. She was a holy terror. Thankfully she wasn’t a climber. My only hope is that this one isn’t either. THE Mimi was a stickler for cleanliness and order just like I am BUT, ..Daughter lives with 3 dogs and a Marine and a one year old. I mean so really…how clean do I need to go here?

Note to self remove the antique lamp and table.. Maybe I should just have them sleep in the garage? No, the cats sleep in there and they would be upset. I’ll figure it out somehow.

There will be crumbs, juice, spit, drool, spills and the occasional bodily fluid all over the place by the end of the 1st day. Put a woooooow on that there clean machine honey! Whites…thank god for bleach huh’ Mom?

At least I have a home carpet cleaner and you didn’t!

We have a saying in our family: “Is it clean or is it Mimi clean?”

Uhmmm, I think we are going to just have a plain clean.

Hubby and I have people over every Sunday and he got really exasperated this last week. He said ,” These people aren’t your mother and they won’t notice that dirty place on the sugar container just turn it over. Besides, she probably wouldn’t have noticed it either.”

Lay Iris Jean

Me: “ Yeah, you are probably right about the group and No mom wouldn’t say anything, we’d just find her in here cleaning it and she’d say “I’m just helping you, this looks like it’s hard to clean and I don’t mind, where do you keep your bleach?”.

Umm, yeah. Not going to happen this week I’m afraid.

So the list just got smaller. I figure the spring-cleaning will commence the day they LEAVE.  Baby and Daughter have been cooped up in a cold wet house for months and while it is wet here, at least it’s 70-80 everyday. We can all go play in the yard. Mark off another chore AND add baby proof the yard.

So that leaves (no pun intended), …a do – able list of fill the pantry, and baby proofing the universe as I know it…Yeah, maybe I can sew on… like Friday!

I found an old 1920-1930 baby romper pattern and whipped up 3 real fast. Heirlooming them, takes goobs and gobbs of time. I used lots of Swiss embroidery and insertion and oodles of lace. (Like about 5 yards of this amazing French edging (just on one little hiney! and 1-2 yards of the other stuff) I still have 1 to top stitch and 2 leg elastic weaving’s to do but I’m really pleased.What do ya think?

Ill be listening to this one for the hand work:

(The spinning songs)

3 little bubble outfits from 1920-30's pattern

Here are the pics I tried to upload the other day when I thought I would have a coronary from this darn blog. Enjoy.

1920-30s pattern and fabric with frothy frothy lace

5 yards of French lace on a baby's bottom, PRICELESS!

Oh… and Dear Lubbock Auntie the one with the Lacey shoulders I made with you in mind. Kisses!

Lace, embroidery and ruffles with polkadots!

Swiss embroidery, swiss lace and roses, so lovely!

This week I’m sure I’ll be singing this one A LOT ( about a complaining daughter) I PLAN to teach the LICKY-NAY song to the Grand babies!

Eye candy update

Check out the Fb page for a preview of things at the studio.

Heirloom lace skirt- for Missy S.


https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003201624999

When I die, I say just pile all that lace on top and leave me naked.
Remember the saying “She who dies with the biggest stach wins.”…???

Yeah, It’s like that.

Anyway

Grand-baby coming in a couple of weeks and this place is not baby proofed. Gotta get busy wrapping some things up and fast! I spent 2 hours removing antiques from the guest room this morning (things that little hands can demolish). Jeff is going through and rehanging things with SCREWS…he envisions her to be a spider monkey capable of scaling walls with suction-cup like fingers. Ha!

Have a great day and enjoy the eye candy!

Staring at Lace, conversing with my….. self?

Staring at Lace…I get the design board up to the lace part,and then I just STARE at it.

I have an enormous collection. It started when I wanted to get married in a gown covered in bits and pieces of scraps of lace in 2001. I found one…
It was $3000. I gagged, but was able to stop what followed only because I was wearing it. We went with a more flat style with scraps of lace on handkerchiefs with the date embroidered on them and an awesome Red velvet cape.

Red cape sans lace

But I started collecting scraps and bits, at close outs and at garage sales.
I had a daughter who was going to be of marrying age in a few years, like if, THAT ever happened….

She married at 2 am in Las Vegas in a pin-up girl style and dress in 2009 …BLAST, it was not (I’m too old for that caarap)…Sing with me now,… “I did it mmmyyyyyy wwwaaayyyyy”.

2 much at 2 am

So I HAVE all this LACE. I feel like I’m married to it somehow. I mean…what if it’s the wrong decision, what if I have to take it off, that’s a booger to do. But I get it in placed, and I’ll be attaching it on a sleeve after FINALLY deciding “this tea dyed french 2 inch would look incredible on a frothy soft blue top.”

I sit and pause as the machine starts to whine and I stop mid-stitch and think,
“Oh good grief, you aren’t marrying it for GODs sakes”….see what I mean.

One batch of lace layed out, I have way more...

Then comes…
“Well that’s just too plain, maybe we should improve on the plan”.

Take COVER.

This is a red flag. This is NOT a good thing.
Improving on the plan usually gets me a flustered raving pouting mess…

I like these but...

I like these but...

And I just used these on this skirt

So I keep going. Thank goodness it’s time for a break.

Tea time with SELF

I almost messed with the plan.Thank the powers that be,… it ended before it started. It would inevitably ended up with me staring at the lace again (all 4000 or so yards of the stuff) and getting nothing done.

I say…,” Hay self, why do you do that?
Self says,”Is it because it’s pretty?”
“Na, that’s not it, I mean it is pretty and all but that’s not it.”
“Well, what the hell is it self?”
“Waste?”
“Maybe you are superstitious, and think if you use it …I don’t know something will happen?”

“Na, it’s like eye candy,it makes me smile to look at it…I just love it!”

“Na, that’s stupid. You are just a 2 year old who doesn’t want to share.”

“Yeah, THAT could be it… You never did like to share either.”

We are off to see the wizard or an internet techoNO day

Inspirations abound for me.
1860-1940’s fascinate me. The history of the lives of my genealogy lines and what they wore and what they did…oh, just scrum-dilly-um-shish for me and my creativity.

Lady Iris Jean and her family were from an Era only in memory now.
The sewing manuals From my grandmothers with chapters on trousseau preparation, fine linens for a well to do home, fabric choices and care etc…Ohhh to be off this thing and sewing!

Grandmother Viola's Sewing book

I still think I’m Martha Pullens long lost daughter. Like on a soap, whisked away and she never knew about me. Someday I MIGHT be able to afford her reproduction of her family sewing and heirlooms book. For now it’s still up in the $98 range USED…. New you can forget about it.

So I will just go with my passions and design away. Check out some of my posts on the old ways and designing as well as my battle with techNO nightmares. This AM before the sun came up, Rosetta stone kicked me off their live tutor session when my mic driver decided to take that opportunity to totally disappear!

Un daunted I proceed …

Blammo, well not blammo ….more like… the sound of screeching breaks at 3 am with an adolescent at the wheel,right before it hit’s a telephone pole and power to the entire subdivision goes out… BUT …

It’s happening!

Layers of lace!

I am posting new items in the store through the rest of the day. That’s right folks it’s a head on assault on this key board today. The words NO! are heard frequently (along with a barrage of comments about FiFi’s mother) from my little office. I never talk like this while I’m sewing!

I’m in the zone, Zen like. Time passes, literal hours and I look up and hubby is standing there grinning ready for supper. But I think I’ve put this off long enough. They really are breathtakingly beautiful.

So out of my safe hermitage, life awaits!

Uploaded the pics,went over soundness of construction like 20 times, sized them,check… Now to Package them and weigh the wee packages, … then onto descriptions, print off the books and then that long sot after “GO” button. Fb may or may not get done…I swear I’ve authorized that darn thing twice and it just asked me to do it AGAIN. Oh-NO Mr Bill comes to mind.(Any other old-timers out there or am I the only one here who FULLY understands what that sounds like?)

We ARE getting there! Hang on for the ride, I hope to miss the telephone pole !

Post script: Why can’t I post to the Fb store site? It says I can only post it on the Artist Logo site? telephone poll number one….

Like a small animal on linoleum but at least I’m moving!

I have been extremely busy, sort of like a cat on linoleum. I do get places, there is a whole lot of movement and activity going on I just haven’t posted anything so you can’t see it!

1st off the Book:
I have the forward completed and 3 completed chapters and 3 more in the works and about 40 chapters planned and titled. The ideas for the entire project are so very exciting I really wish this was the year 3000 or, I was Samantha Stevens (I used to wish that a lot when I was little).

Life is just too cool and there are just so many experiences! I also wish I had a whole lot of money to hire out the proofing, illustration and copy … but holy mother of FiFi, I was born under the poverty line and stretch daily to keep just above it. But oh well, more to experience right?
I am having fun fun fun! And ooohh so pleased with my Battenburg finished creation, even without the sash, that I can’t wait to out it up Friday!

Sandra Sue and the Battenburg lace confection

The Illustrations are too cool and I have acquired some computer apps which I thought would might make that part easier…hmmmm. yea. NOT!
Let’s face it guys, I’m just not computer literate and I can’t get the training wheels off that bike. It is exhausting and wastes so much time I could be writing, drawing, painting or sewing.

I was able to settle on a certain style for the eyes of the characters. Which just thrills me to death. Iris Jean had these eyes that were so cool in real life. My daughter has those eyes only magnified x10. I have been drawing those eyes a thousand different ways for 3 weeks! There are “EYEs everywhere in the house! The kitchen, dinning room, studios and even one bathroom! I’ve found the perfect perfect pair and they fit on each project so perfectly!

Which leads me to the dolls, Paper dolls, and kids projects.

The dolls!
OMG! That has been so much fun. As you know, I hand draft pretty much everything. Give me a picture of something and I WILL figure it out and come up with a pattern.

Now this is a secret, some folks think I’m a Genius but I am NOT… there is a reason I HAVE to do it that way……. I CAN NOT follow directions to save my life! BAHAHAHAHAH! Me and a friend laughed until we cried the other day.Here is a really good example!

I made 3 dolls. 1 yr old Baby Iris Jean and 3-5 year old Sandra Sue. I had a Doll pattern that I just loved the look of and thought I would give it a whirl and see which turned out better.

Well the 1st 2 went off without a hitch and got all but the faces/hair completed in about 2 days…all the while I was also messing with said pattern doll.

This pattern doll got her legs put on as follows:
1- Inside out correct placement of toes, so I tore that out and then….
2- Toes pointing backwards correct placement so I tore that out then….
3- Toes pointing next to her bottom backwards!

I gave up and will have to hand sew them on today. I will TRY…but every time I pick her up I can’t stop laughing at the REAL me that no one knows about! (ya know…I think I’ll name her Fifi!)

The Dresses:
Got 3 finished they will go up on Friday in the store. I am really really pleased with the style, fabrics and lace combinations not to mention the dreamy heirloom blue ribbons on the last one.

A major draw back to hand drafting and marking on fabric is every now and then the markers leave residual that will not come out. I have tried several different pen’s, pencils and chalks through the years and the most recommended water marker is what I draft with these days. The little apron sundress was going to be woven with ribbon trims but I found the draft mark had not come out! …

Drafting marks


I could get it out but it would take an entire day and I want to move on so I will sell this one at a discount as a “heirloom blank” with some ribbon and someone else can weave ribbon and decorate it.

The Labels got designed and printed and did not bleed during washing so YEAH! We have got a legit label going on them today.

I just hate uploading pictures (of course I do…it’s on a computer),
but I did get them done.

Mock up Baby Iris Jean

The Doll mock-ups have become my little models and are so cute! Not having my little granddaughter around is hard so I just picked the 1yr old up the other day, and gave a good “Squnch”!

What do ya think?

If you are not into Etsy I will upload to the Fb page for Lady iris Jean so check that out at Lady Iris Jean (Retail/shopping) sight
Or, Iris Jean personal site.! See ya round!

Lists of all the lists I need to make!

Anybody ever have artistic block?

I have so many ideas it is blocking me! What to do first, next, ….
I have the day to my lonesome. Hubby’s at work of 1 day and I have about …a ga-gillioon things on my list to do and work on.

The holidays put me into “Turkey mode”. You know that feeling after Christmas dinner? Where you just stare into space and feel peaceful?
The house is still clean from not being here and the studios are spotless.
I took about 20 idea mags with me to design some stuff and still writing stuff down!

Well good grief it’s been 7 days almost and I’m still in the lull of total inactivity. Here is the last thing I did before I left. Don’t like it much but friends oohhed and awwed when I messaged it around. Maybe I’ll put it up anyway. A nice apron dress to get dirty! Oh what fun!
Bloomers though…got them done but can’t figure our how to take a picture of them!

White arpon pinafore/Sundress


Anywho…

Found some awesome old timer Paper dolls from the 1930’s while up in the mountains. We were snowed in for 4 straight days! My one day out was awesome! I just stare at them and wish i had the paper artist gene! Maybe I’ll give it a try for the children’s books. I have the illustrations….Ahwww there I go again!

Now what to do,what to do? A list, that’s it.

I’ll make a list of all the lists I need to make! (That’s so totally Lady Iris Jean )!
