I want to learn how to sew so that I can...

Recommended Posts

I've made these before and they are soooooo easy! But you do need a sewing machine. You get a bath towel and hand towel of the same print. Fold the hand towel in half and sew one end together to make the hood. Then attach the long end of the hand towel to the long end of the towel. I'm sure there's a better way to explain it, but hopefully you get the jist.

sewing is harder then it seems #1 rule you sew things right sides together first and then flip them through a small opening and hand sew that area shut. It makes your corners look neat and you can not see all the extra threads. But you know what is easier and takes less time then sewing...finding a great deal for them online :)

See if this makes sense...

 

You'd have to make the cut on the beach towel match the length on the hood from the hand towel. Wouldn't be that hard, but without a hand towel around, I've got no idea how big that would be.

You say that, but try living with it... I see something and my mind wanders off with the mechanics of it... I will seriously wake up in the middle of the night thinking about stuff like this and be totally unable to sleep until I can get to the bottom of it.

It's sort of pathetic, really.smile35.gif

I'm going to have my FI buy me not just a sewing machine... but an embroidery sewing machine... there is so much automated stuff it can do... CRAZY!

 

I have a year and a half until my wedding and in that time I need to learn to sew because I am going to make my own cloth napkins (and embroider our monogram on them), my own table runners, and my own chair sashes. I want a tri-color looking thing... so buying them gets expensive quick.

 

I'm also going to make those towel things and whatever else I can come up with. Maybe placemats -- cause I orignally wanted pink charger plates but couldnt find any...

See I get that way too... except with things like spreadsheet formulas. I'm a geek. I'll stay up all night creating a cool spreadsheet.

Super cute, my neighbor used to make the animals ones and sell them but she got sick and doesn't do it anymore, but you can find them around if you aren't brave enough to pick up sewing!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
