Dropped a drop

While the scheduled shop drops have mostly kept me on track, they obviously haven’t entirely done it, and if you’ve been keeping track this past Saturday should have been a drop and… it wasn’t. I’m going to go ahead and list the mystique dragons when they’re finished rather than wait for a drop since they’re […]

Freebie Friday: Shoe Charm Snap Tab

I feel like this is a rerun of Monday because here’s the promised freebie design, and also the mailman just delivered that Whelan tote and dice bag. And I’ve been working on a lot of mystery dragons so I don’t have much to show pictures of, either. Tomorrow’s a shop drop but I also don’t […]

Charm holders and more Whelan

Larger dragons

The largest dragon I usually make is four or five inches tall (that’s the Cherry/Raspberry Sno-Cone in 4″, who also makes a pretty good trans pride flag dragon for June). That’s as big as will fit in my embroidery machine; while I do have a lot of experience with conventional sewing, I kind of hate […]

It’s been awhile since I did a “stick something in the embroidery machine and see what happens.” I decided that, rather than make a boring embroidered dot for the license plate screws, I’d put some scrapbooking brads in these fobs. There are actually brads that look like screw heads but I don’t have any that […]
