111  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: My Favorite Character Plushie/Stuffie Swap Send Out 10/08/10 Discussion on: August 16, 2010 10:53:26 AM
My partner has a fabulous character list, she made it really easy to choose one. Tongue This is going to be, by far, the most complicated amigurumi I have ever attempted. I'm even doing it without a pattern. OH SNAP.

The size was 5"-12", right? Because, based on what parts I have already made, mine is going to come out about 10" tall I think.

I'm not sure what you mean by connect them - all I used was the 28g wire. It's supposed to be done in two strands, so I cut a super-long piece of wire, folded it over the hoop end of the clasp, then wrapped it around the clasp at the end.

I used a spring ring (one of these: http://www.shopwiki.com/Spring+Ring+Clasp ), which in retrospect was not the smartest thing. I can't put the bracelet on myself, I have to have someone help me. It looks cute though. Smiley

Thank you for all the lovely comments. Smiley It's pretty and girly, I love it. (Even though the flash on my camera makes my arms look hairy . . . gross. Tongue)

I couldn't find the tutorial to save my life! But I drew you a picture of how the wire weaves through the beads, hopefully you can figure it out:

**edit: smaller picture. I don't know why it came out so huge.

So, I have a question . . . we filled out the questionarre about our favorite characters and whatnot, so are we going to get that list from our partner in a PM? Or do I have to go stalk her to get her list? Tongue

This sounded like a super idea for my first swap. Smiley I am really excited, this should be really fun!

This is my first serious attempt at a beaded piece of jewelry . . . well, besides just stringing one long strand of beads and tying it into a circle. Tongue Made with purple and clear seed beads, silver spacers, and 28 gauge wire.

And up close:

I found a tutorial on the internet about how to make them. Not too bad for a first project, I don't think.

Comments + constructive criticism welcome. Smiley
117  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Ruffled bangle bracelets on: August 15, 2010 06:12:33 PM
Bangles are very in-style right now. So are ruffles. So I decided to combine the two. Smiley

They were all crocheted using a basic ruffle method - sc around the bangle, then 3 dc in each st around to make it ruffle. The white one is made in Rustica Eclat crochet thread (size 3 cotton, I think?), the blue and green one is a baby sport yarn, and the silver one is . . . unknown. It came from a hat I had that I unraveled to upcycle. All were made using thin metal bangles and a B hook.

I have, since making these, discovered a pattern somewhere on the internet. I didn't use the same method though.

Comments + constructive criticism is welcome. Smiley

You could always check with the people who sort donations at thrift stores. A lot of thrift stores will throw away electronics if they don't work, like phones/microwaves/mixers/etc., and you could always strip the outer casing and use the wires from those. And since they're getting rid of them because they don't work, you can probably get most of them for free or very very cheap.

Well, I've made a couple of graphs for a pixel blanket but haven't actually tried to make one yet. Tongue You could try making tiny squares (like only a couple rounds for a granny) or make your drawing smaller.

Would it be possible to see the pixel drawing you are working with? That might help us figure out what to do.
120  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Does Etsy count as 'self employed'? on: August 09, 2010 04:45:05 PM
This is for people in the US, since I live there . . .

I was looking something up on the IRS website a couple days ago, and it says that if you make more than $400 a year selling something - be it handmade stuff or a service - then you have to file taxes as a self-employed business. But I assumed this is only if you have a proper business license and whatnot . . . does Etsy count as being self-employed? I mean, you'd have to sell a lot of crafts to make $400, but I don't want to sell things, make money, and get in trouble at the end of the year.

Anybody have any idea?
