Rubber Band (Tape) With Holes

August 13th, 2017

Above is the rubber band I mentioned in my previous post. It’s quite common now. Kids’ pants use it a lot.   Please zoom it to see it. I learned from store pants I bought for kids while ago. The points are: Make a ‘vertical straight hole’ on the waist band. The height is same […]

(Difficult) Washable Pen

December 12th, 2016

I bought this pen from my seller friend. I thought, it was just like another washable pen I had. Apparently, it is NOT. I used the remover only once on this project and the stains were not disappeared. It was still there. Very hard to be removed. I then had a feeling that this will be very […]

Pattern on Fabric

December 4th, 2016

My latest project is sewing a kid’s clothes (girl). For charity actually. When I was pinning the fabric, somehow, my mind was drawn into the pattern of the fabric. I then became very observing. I noticed that the pattern which i thought first is like ‘mirror’ (or ‘two direction’ pattern), it wasn’t. It was actually […]

Changing Needle

November 7th, 2016

Again, i forgot to check my sewing needle. When I sew, seems like the tip is not sharp anymore so it damaged the fabric a little bit. Thank goodness, i had a chance to change it so it wouldn’t give damage any further. Checking the tip of needle and then changing the needle when it’s not […]

Rayon Fabric

November 2nd, 2016

I used rayon fabric on my new doll clothes. I made quite similar to 1/4 circle skirt. I saw the rayon fabric is also good for 1/4 BJD doll. The fall is better than even thin cotton. Cotton sometimes can be stiff. Rayon is less stiff. I might re-use it on bigger doll. I think, […]

Stretch Fabric Learning

April 10th, 2016

fabric: jersey stretch needle: special for stretch fabric #9 This is my second trial. The hand part is bulky because i used interfacing on my lining and the lining covered the bodice’s hand holes. May be for next learning, I should use thinner interfacing. I used common/standard interfacing for this. I didn’t serge the edge. […]

Bra R&D Continued

March 28th, 2016

-________- …. i didn’t mean to but i was curious. So, i made another derivation from pattern version 5. I called it Bra version 5-c. -____- . I think, bra R&D has the most numbers of version after asleep eidolon’s pants R&D. I did pants until 5 version too, I think but no such a […]

There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.

Finally, arrived at 3 shapes of bra. From here, i will develop more. At least, my theory is correct (and ‘confirmed’ after I read http://mydollyadventures.blogspot.com/2014/02/making-of-doll-bra.html#.Vu2Tz0vHeHp ). Actually, I always know that doll is resin and human is ‘flesh, thus, the pattern or clothes making sometimes is different but somehow, i forgot that when making bra. I […]

Erasable Pen vs Erasable Spidol

January 21st, 2016

I use erasable pen for sewing doll clothes. It was ok until lately. First when i serge the project with the marking was still there. When i washed it, goodness! It was hard to disappear. Second, today. I used brocade fabric for the clothes. I thought, it would be ok, no problem. All i need […]
