1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Button makers? on: August 05, 2013 02:05:19 AM
Hopefully I am posting in the right place. (If I am not I am sorry!)

Finally decided to start making buttons. I found one I like but am just not sure! I wanted to hear about some other experiences from button makers, who make their own buttons at conventions and such? I know you guys are out there! What model do you use? Do you think the one you have suits you best? What do you like about it or hate about it? What would you suggest for someone just getting into button making?

Thanks in advance!

They were not particularly easy to pull apart but, meh. Yeah, I plan on getting some fiber wool soon. You have been a big help. Thank you so much!

I was looking right at the loose fibers too! I got a 'sheet' like of felt. I was just pulling it apart to see if that would work. I spent well over an hour trying to felt it. Don't think  did a very good job. Will probably go back today or tomorrow to get some loose fibers.

May have to try wet felting too. Do you suggest any soap or oil in particular?

Oh my goodness, I have seen so many cute animals felted! It makes em want to do them more and more!
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Trying to find antron fleece! on: July 26, 2013 12:33:19 AM
I can't seem to find it anywhere. Looking to make a costume with antron fleece, but can't seem to find it ANYWHERE! Anyone know of any place with a good variety of colours and actually sells?

I didn't even know there was such a thing as wet felting! But I found AC moore has a few essentials. I got a small foamblock and two needles in a little kit for 2.53 and some felt for another 2.53. Though I think I got the wrong kind!

I am wanting to try felting acorns. That's what got me interested anyway. But in the future I would love to try all the little animal kits and such. I saw the most adorable little hedgehog kit.

What's the difference with wet felting? Is that for different types of items?
6  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Questions, Felting kits? on: July 24, 2013 06:32:25 AM
So, it's been a few days as I have been researching about felting. I am finally up to buying one this week. I wanted to know where to buy the best supplies/kit?

I have three main craft stores in my area:
Ac moore
Michaels
Jo annes

I also have a fabric outlet and another mom and pop store in the area (but I think they are more canvas and clay).

Would any of those craft stores be a good place to stock up? I will be heading to Ac moore later today. (Since I have awesome coupons to buy stuff with!)

If I have to buy items separately rather than in a premade kit, what are the most important things to get?

Any information is much appreciated.

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Leather and copic markers? on: July 22, 2013 08:18:34 PM
So, it's been awhile since I have been crafting and I just have this urge to make some leather items. I could not find much on how copic markers work with leather, although it does say that they can be used on leather. There are many uses copic markers can provide for me but I am hesitant because I have never really seen anyone use them. I can use them air brushing, or for fine details. It seems like a win win.. but I always like to research before I just dive into it. Any information would be wonderful!

Thank you,
Stakie
