Also, am I understanding correctly that it's a good idea to starch all fabric before cutting it as well as starch the backing before basting?
    Thanks so much!

I have somehow managed to survive the learning curve with a penny in the bank and a smile on my face.

  6. Need advice to finish this purse?

    by , 05-04-2013 at 03:24 PM
    I am making my first attempt at a purse for my daughter's Mother's day gift. Didn't use a pattern, has a zippered pocket and one open pocket inside the lining. Anyone have any advice for putting on the top zipper and attaching the lining. No sure how to go about it, I have the zipper sewn into the top, do I sew the ends up on the zipper piece first?? Then attached to top of purse?

    by , 05-04-2013 at 01:58 PM
    Today on my I phone had a offer for a year of QNNtv,com for 12months for $12.Great deal I thought but it has strings somehow you are signed in to paypal and you have 2 charges one for $12 and another for $24 every year starting in 2014 for an indefinite time. I went back to the offer and there is no clue you are signing up for every year. So paypal said to sign back in and cancel the $24 reacquiring charge. This kind of business puts a sour taste on ever doing future business with either company. ...

  10. Problem with naugahyde & need suggestions on quilt

    by , 05-03-2013 at 08:13 AM
    Here's a picture of the purse I am trying to make, also I have FMQ into all the square on this quilt, now I am trying to figure out what to stitch into the frames around the squares. How do you think it would look to stitch straight lines perpendicular to the frames?
