Can someone post more simple instructions on how to make the devil's cape/collar?

I'm able to make the creatures without them toppling over...made the skeleton groom, top hat and all, and he doesn't topple over even though I didn't put pellets underneath. My secret? I made him using a D hook--he's only a wee bit smaller than the one I made with an E hook. I find making creepy cute characters with a D hook makes it easier to stuff them to death (no pun intended!) without the stuffing bursting from the holes. So it's easier to put more "weight" on the bottom with lots of scrunched up polyfill. Of course, you gotta put the stuffing inside in little increments, not a big fistful right away. Hope this helps.

I still don't know what to do with my damn corporate zombie's hair. I shot an email off to needlenoodles earlier this week, no reply yet.

When I did the Corporate Zombie I made the hair as instructed, but as soon as I tried to pull it off the ruler I was winding it around, it all tried to come loose. I think the instructions should have a final instruction to put masking tape on it on both sides until you get it sewed on the head, then take the masking tape off.

I had the same problem. Having never done anything like that to make hair, I was concerned that maybe I was doing it wrong, but I guess either we both were or the book is wrong...and judging by all these comments, I think it might be the latter.

Hmm then why in the photo, it's stitched zig-zag at the top of the forehead (page 56)?

ARGH I'm so frustrated. I'm putting my half-assed zombie aside and working on the "easy" projects again. GRRR

I hear y'all. Even the basic head has some typos...ch 1, sc in same st...then after some rounds, it doesn't say "sc in same st", but it still counts that sc as a stitch.

Anyway, I tried making eyes with polymer clay and will prolly use super glue to glue them on the amigurumis.

My big frustration now is the corporate zombie's hair. I swear, I was trying to figure it out for TWO hours and I just gave up.  Cry Cry Cry

So I'm working on Needle Noodle's Creepy Cute Crochet's "Corporate Zombie" pattern...and I'm stuck on how to attach the hair! Has anyone worked on this pattern? It says sew the fringes on one side, then another...which sides? The left and right, or front and back to make "bangs" and "back hair?"

I tried the "zig zag" TWICE but he ended up with a lot of bald patches... and the photos in the book doesn't look like he has bald patches.

I'm ready to give up...

I'm so confused  Huh Huh Huh

28  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: do you bag purchases? on: November 10, 2007 04:05:43 PM
I do the same! I usually share my booth with a friend, and I bag my merch in brown paper bags with my label glued on them (printed them out and well, glued them on). My friend is a bit more crafty: she makes paper bags out of magazine pages/old calendars and twists some more paper for the handles. Smiley

Im a just a hobbyist, but Im a craft fair customer.  Knowing the effort involved, I have never bargained for any craft fair purchase.  However, If I saw this sign:

Quote
"I cut, sand drill, sand, paint, assemble and package every item.  And you want me to sell it for how much?"

I would be disinclined to purchase from this vendor.  Its the tone of the sign.  I dont disagree that a ton of work is involved in a finished product and you should be compensated for that work.  I also agree that crafters tend to underestimate themselves monetarily. 


I agree. I wouldn't want to converse with someone who's pretty defensive even before I've spoken to them...

My mom was able to unearth what seems like ancient crochet hooks (okay so they were like, my sister's when she was in high school, but that's pretty ancient to me!). They have nice thumb rests, but the problem is the numbers are faded! ARGH!
