I have been thinking about getting a die cutting machine, but I am a bit confused because there seems to be so many. I dont want one that works with a computer, so that cuts a few out. I would like to know if there is a machine that will work with any of the dies from any company. i would like to be able to cut paper, card, felt/fabric.
I hope that makes sense. thanks I look forward to your input.
Is it possible to dye human hair using acid (vinegar) dyes. the hair is not on my head but on a weft. i want to make some clip in hair extension and wonder if i could use acid dyes. hair must be a protein fiber. Any ideas. I know i could use normal hair dye,but i want some funky colours and well I have acid dyes on hand.
I am learning tablet weaving and have been able to the basics and am now trying to do double faced weaving. the problem i have is that the weft yarn keeps showing through and i didnt think it should for this type of weaving. There is a pic of the problem.
can anyone see where or what i have done wrong. Please help thank you.
I want to to make a plushie for a long time, but was having trouble coming up with a good design. So i got my boyfriend to draw me some ideas and one really caught my eye. I scaled up the drawing and this is what I made.
I made him using the simple cookie cutter method out of a woven fleece fabric. his eyes and mouth are cut from felt and sewn on.
