2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Pricing... yet again! This time for embroidery patterns and finisched works on: June 13, 2010 02:57:59 PM
Hi,

I recently got me a machine embroiderer from brother and I love it... Now this is the thing:
I'd like to earn some of my money back by doing custom embroidery for people/businesses. But how do I price the work?

I'd like to establish a price per embroidery and also a price for designing the (custom) embroidery pattern.

So lets say I have to design a pattern from a logo that has 2 colors in it and is 10 by 10 cm big (or 9000 stiches) and I have to embroider that same pattern 20 times on t-shirts (you can leave the tshirts out of the equasion).

How much should/can I charge for that???

I thought about sewing it <I can sew>, but it need to look more "real" if you know what I mean... I want every scale to be visible and touchable.
And sorry to say, but I HATE lame  Sad

I'd really like people to almost believe that it's a living and breathing thing Cheesy  Although I don't know if that's gonna work with my skills Cheesy

Time is not an issue, it can take years for all I care.

I hope my question is allowed in this sub-category I couldn't find anywhere it fit better.

For one of my next costumes I want to make a large "carry-on" dragon sculpture. A bit like this: http://ironshod.deviantart.com/art/Soul-Mates-112620615
Since I'm going to be carrying it on my back it can't be too heavy and since it's so big (like a large hiking-backpack) it can't be baked in an oven or something.

I'm starting out with a wire-frame and building it up with tin-foil. The outer layer I want to sculpt with clay, so I can get all the details in. I've also considered paper mache, but I don't know if I can get the same amount of detail in it that way.

SO... can anyone give me any advice on the materials for this projects outer layer??

8  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: sewing machine vs. overlock on: February 04, 2010 12:14:13 AM
I just bought the Medion Overlock at Aldi Nord, didn't have time to check it out yet. It gets mixed reviews, but at the price of 130, it just has to be tested. (My first overlock). Aldi is generous about returning items, and Medion has a pretty decent customer service. So if you're in the northern part of Germany, maybe you want to check out that machine.
have you since, worked with this machine, I'm thinking about buying but I'm worried about the mixed reviews.
9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / In need of gift inspiration on: January 31, 2010 11:43:14 AM
Hi, fellow craftsters!

I've been around for little more than a year now, although I mostly reside in the sewing sections. But I have a paper-related problem now.

My father in law is having his birthday at the end of february. And my sister in law asked me to make something nice, related to a photo of his vacation cottage. But I have to tell you... after the holliday's I'm all tapped out on gift ideas!

My painting and drawing days are a time away and even though I was averagely ok at it, I only ever drew animals.

Please help!
