1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Hired to x-stitch: must give quote on: August 01, 2011 07:49:50 PM
Hello beloved craftsters!

I've agreed to make 3 simple x-stitchings for a friend to use in a movie he's making. It's pretty cool; they will actually be quite important to the plot!

They will be lettering: one is a long sentence (20 wds), the second is 9 words and the third is just one single word (I won't share what they are without his permission). I told him I would need to see the patterns/designs before I could give a very accurate quote, but he needs the quote first to see if the movie can even afford custom handmade x-stitchings.

This quote must cover materials as well as my labor. Could any of you experienced stitchers help me ballpark this?

Thanks in advance!

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / "Bounce" hat question on: August 31, 2009 08:51:11 AM
Hey all,

Has anyone made this slouchy knit hat?
 
http://yarnballboogie.com/patterns/Bounce.pdf

I'm trying to make one but I'm having trouble.
The instructions say to work as "k1, k1 into row below, k1, repeat to end"

Judging by the picture, I'd say this was to produce a ribbed effect without purls, but all I'm doing is knitting a piece that never grows length! Do you suppose there's an error in the pattern? Perhaps you only do the (k1 into row below) every other row?
4  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Bat curtain - filet crochet on: August 23, 2008 04:40:43 PM
Hi!

I made this curtain for my bedroom window from the pattern used to teach filet crochet. It's perfect for this window, which doesn't get very much sunlight through it to begin with.

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crocheted "rope" on: March 11, 2008 08:00:03 AM
Hi guys,

I'm looking for a knitting/crochet pattern to make "rope"; ie- the thick, twisted, heavy-duty cartoon rope. I was thinking that I could knit a whole shitload of somewhat-thick i-cord and then twist them together (Debbie Stoller mentions this technique in Stitch-n-Bitch... I think she calls it "monk cord") but that would take forever.... if I want the finished rope to be really long, I'd be i-cording forever!

Does anyone know of a pattern that makes a twisted ropelike thing? I'd be much obliged..

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Leather Biker Jacket Recon on: November 15, 2007 08:24:38 PM
I found this leather jacket at Value Villiage for $19.99.

It fit great in the shoulders, and I loved the classic biker collar... but it was hideously 80s! The length was askward, and the sleeves were really wide in the upper arm. Belt loops!  Embarrassed



Don't I look happy?



So I took my sharp sewing scissors and taught it a lesson!





That's better! Cropping it meant replacing the zipper, but it was worth it!



I premiered it last month... went well with my Halloween costume!



Thanks for looking!
10  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / product opinions and pricing please! (img heavy) on: October 25, 2007 10:52:36 AM
Hey gang,

Before I dive into the magical world of etsy, I'd like some of your opinions about my products and the prices I'm thinking of asking. I have seller's anxiety a la mode, so I would really appreciate some brutal honesty!

1) I make wallets. The exterior is leather with leather applique. The interior is interfaced cotton/broadcloth. Leather strap /w snap closure... zipper change purse... blah-de-blah.

outsides:



insides:




I'm thinking $40 for the leather with applique, $35 for leather exterior with another form of embellishment (foiling/reverse applique), and $30 for non-leather exterior. What do you think?

2) I make coasters. Sets of 4, reversible leather. One side has reverse applique, the other just has detail stitching.





$30 - 40 bucks? I really don't know what leather coasters go for...

Thanks in advance to all feedback. xo
