i'm a cheater, that's how! i tried to just do the regular old stencil with freezer paper.. spent like 2 hrs cutting out all the letters (on the back is a quote from the book.. why are you worried about u - know - who) and when i started to iron on the fabric, it turned it all sorts of purple and i almost had a heart attack.. then i got over it and just stencilled.. but either because of the fabric or the zipper on the other side making it hard to iron on.. my paint bled. alot. i cried.
then i went out and bought another pouch and started over, but this time i used the yellow stickers i had left over from her altoid tin, and i just stuck them onto the fabric and mod podged over it once i was satisfied with their position. lemme tell ya.. stickers.. much much easier. but you might need some nails to do it as it took alot of repositioning to make it all fit

You are a genius! Holy crap have I got ideas now

hgflower- how did you get the yellow to stand out on the purple fabric so well and what did you use? (The twins kick major bum!)

1126  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: Pricing My Tote Bags Too High? on: December 28, 2005 02:04:54 PM
It's important to know I am just one kind of potential buyer. No job, little cash- but adore handmade crap. I agree with the fact that the idea of having glued on pieces makes it seem like anyone could make it to an extent. The designs are cute! I think the sewn bag's price is more reasonable. If the bags themselves had been handmade (I'm assuming you bought plain canvas bags then decorated them) and then had sewn on details, the price could go up knowing the entire product was made by the person selling them. (If you learned how to sew them and bought canvas in bulk you could probably even save money in the long run.)
1127  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Recycled products/New business on: December 28, 2005 09:57:57 AM
For 3 years now I've been playing with the idea of starting my own online store. (Started up two fledgling businesses that got shoved out of the nest far too soon.) So I'm starting to get the itch again lol and I was wondering about a few things. I do part time teaching and go to school, I'm not trying to make a career out of it but I want more excuses to craft and get paid more often for doing it lol

1) I'm a student with meager resources as far as cash goes- are crafters/businesses frowned upon if they solely sell off of ebay? I know there isn't anyway I'd manage paying a monthly fee to run my own site and ebay seems like the simple solution.

3) Would you recommend paypal or is it not worth the hassle? Would it be easier to just accept checks?

4) If paypal is ok, what do you think about people who sell off of free websites like freewebs and whatnot?

5) Lastly, I know I want to make things out of recycled items and clothing. I know of a nice little venture known as gypsy moon and some great punk/dumpster lines that do something along the lines. How well do you think it will do? (Of all of the businesses, they all sell out of zines and catelogs, never online as far as I know.)

Thank you so much in advance! You guys kick major bum ^_^

Lol just noticed we had a gallery up. Again, Polish. Everyone's stuff has come out so cute! The popsicle stick snape made me giggle, it's too cute! And the Harry and Draco rings were lovely, to just name a few. I'm so eager to see what pookie made me lol

Your children are adorable! What nation are you from? Your products are very nice, your beading is very nice! You may want to make the "add to cart" buttons smaller. Also, on the barrette page, a little ways down the page the "add to cart button" is off center next to the image. (Sorry OCD lol) It's a very nice site! ^_^
