Anyways, I joined this now because my desire to make things out of fabric has come back.
Velveteen is a VERY difficult fabric to work with, so are fabrics that are tuffeta-esque. So, if you are not very good at using fabrics to make things like tops, dresses, other things, don't use those. Even people who have made many things like dresses have difficulty with those fabrics, so be careful. Also sometimes it is helpful when making outfits to remember to do the staystiching around the neck, and the holes, it helps prevent stretching, but it usually tells you that if you follow a pattern.
There is also a simple blanket you can make if you buy some polar fleece fabric. The blankets can cost a lot in the store, and it is more fun to make one yourself, so what you can do is buy the fabric, any size you want, make sure the edges are straight, or if you want make a wavy pattern, and cut a fringe along it. Yay. Simple and easy. I'm trying to figure out how to make the ones that are more expensive and difficult. Does anyone know how to do the stitch that borders the blanket, usually done with yarn? I know that there is a line of stiches done under it, to keep the fabric from pulling and streatching, but what sort of stich is done in yarn? If anyone knows where I could find that, that would be loverly =P
I also like to knit, though I havent in a long time. I also like to make pom-pom birds, where you make your own pompoms out of yarn. They are not the easiest thing to make, and it takes a long time to make the pompom but they are cute. I gave one to my boyfriend Travis some years back. When I find the circles, I'll post the measurements for them and the instructions on how to make them. Though the size really is not too important. It just helps.
And sorry for rambling, I'm hyper..
I also like to bake, things like cookies and candy like things are what I love to make..
