Three of the four packages of mochi arrived! Naturally, it happened while I’m thoroughly booked making sparkly dragons, so I don’t plan on making more mochi dragons for another couple of weeks unless someone requests them – but once I get comparison pictures made with the Shannon color reference I’ll put fat quarters in the […]
This one’s not going to be a quarter holder, but it’s going to hold something else quarter-sized. Files for it next Monday (or buy me a ko-fi and I’ll share my working files with you early).
I went to point someone to the story of the galaxy velvet and… it’s not here on the blog? The picture of the car is in the media archives, but evidently I changed my mind on that post. Weird. Anyway, here is the story of how I came to be in possession of fabric that […]
There’s been a March Meet The Maker hashtag on Instagram, and yesterday’s prompt was “job[s]” so I took the opportunity to list a few of the jobs inherent in running a crafting business. It’s an important thing to take into account when pricing goods. I left off “social media manager” and also left off the […]
It is, of course, discontinued, because my love affairs with fabric are always doomed. But it’s still available in quite a few color options. Silver and gold are in my cart, though with as little as there is of silver (that’s at most three orders, since clearances are 2-yard minimum) I might not get it […]
I’m kidding, I just went last night with my Gritty one. These ones are for the shop.
You may remember last summer I had a brief fling with a Cricut Maker, which ended badly. I’ve continued working with my aging Silhouette Cameo (too old to even have a number); it’s slow, it’s loud, it’s single-carriage, it probably doesn’t have the pressure capability to cut marine vinyl. I’ve thought about getting a Cameo […]
The original standing dragons were sized to fit in my 5×7″ hoop. Some while back I decided to revise the design and one thing led to another, and I had baby dragons: chunkier legs and bodies, shorter muzzles, slightly different wings, and looking up slightly so they could have cute pairings with the older design: […]
As teased in the article on resizing designs with Ink/Stitch, I have a little classic Mario pixel-art design as a freebie today. There are two versions: one in satin stitch, one in brick fill. In both cases, every other block is rotated 90 degrees. This has two effects: it keeps the “pixels” from running together, […]
Naturally, after all my articles about mochi, JoAnn has essentially stopped carrying Pure Plush. I’ve never been able to get plain white, and the colors they did carry were a bit weird (my color sheet is here), so I broke down and ordered some direct from Shenzhen. I got plain white and an arbitrary brown […]
