Quote from: indigotiger on November 03, 2019, 12:03:13 pmTurquoise - working with scuba seems like it would definitely be a new technique for you. I have read that using "craft felt" yardage is a good alternative when making up a toile for working with leather, as it is similarly bulky and not very stretchy, I wonder if that would also work for a toile for your scuba fabric?
Quote from: Sew Ruthie Sews on October 30, 2019, 10:00:54 amMy new technique is probably going to be learning to work with the silk fabric, or maybe welt pockets or front fly. I have a lot to choose from as I tend to avoid those tricky things.
Quote from: stephaniecan on November 03, 2019, 07:45:29 amThat is so funny. I am trying to guess how many garments I could make with my stash and I am hoping it is fewer than 111!
Quote from: indigotiger on November 08, 2019, 12:28:25 amI thought that the article about "capsules, formulas, and uniforms" was very clear, though my own wardrobe has more what I would describe as a standard "recipe" closer to a formula than a uniform.
Quote from: Lisanne on November 06, 2019, 06:07:39 amNot entirely meant as a joke - perhaps if people can give good evidence they have tried hard with a new technique but never got good enough results to use it for a garment - they should still be allowed to count it as their new technique

Quote from: CCL on November 09, 2019, 05:22:31 amWhen IndigoTiger first posted the rules, I got all excited because it would give me a perfect excuse to line up all the garments I have fabric for and want to sew (tentatively, my inspiration phrase: "Quit dithering and sew. The fabric wants to be seen.")Well, yesterday I sketched out what I was thinking, and realized that there were enough projects for the next ten years. So I am having a rethink, but I don't want to buy any more fabric.
Quote from: stephaniecan on November 09, 2019, 10:08:54 amI got to 25 garments already within just a few minutes.
Quote from: stephaniecan on November 09, 2019, 12:51:39 pmI never understand why it is that I get excited about something, buy the materials, and then suddenly a month or two later it is no longer "good enough" to be top of mind.
