4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Protecting Plushy Designs on: August 21, 2007 07:50:11 AM
Hello everyone, I have a question about patenting my designs. I recently sold a couple of plushies on etsy. The peson that ordered them requested I mail to a company. I researched it online and found its a company that sells handmade crafts. I'm worried that my ideas are going to be duplicated for sale. I dont know much about how to protect my work or where to get started. As of right now I'm not making any sort of constant income off my work, but I am working up to that. I plan on listing much more in the not too distant future and if you have any advice, it would be much appreciated.

Thank you!!!
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Dreaming of a Purple ZEBRA (a desk) bunch-o-pics on: June 29, 2007 09:08:26 AM
Our (my boyfriend Miguel and I) adventure started at a flea market where we found this sturdy wood desk for $40. Looking back, it didnt look all that bad, but we had something else in mind for it.


We didnt know what we were getting ourselves into. Our power sanding thingy kept dying so we ended up sanding most of it down by hand. (my little sis in the pic)


We primered and added layer after layer of purple!! Then comes Miguel's drawing skills. He drew out the stripes on either side with marker and we got to painting the stripes in! [tilt head sideways hehe]


At this point, we took it home (we were working at my step dad's house) and my friend Curly came over to help with the border and stripes on the drawers.


Tito guarded the desk from intruders!!


And finally we started screwing in the lovely handles!




And tada! My new sewing desk!



All thats left to do it put a new lock on the bottom drawer where that hole is Smiley

We worked on this on and off for several months and I'm just so happy and proud of how it come out!! We're a good team Grin I hope you all like it too, and ofcourse comments and criticism are welcome with open arms! Wink

P.S. sorry so many pictures Undecided
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Urban Outfitters Housedress? on: June 10, 2007 04:59:59 PM
I've been eyeing this dress for a while. I decided I wanted to make something similar for myself and bought some fabric, but I really have no idea how to go about making it. Does anyone know of a pattern that is similar? No collar, button down front dress.





And if you know how they did the buttons with the little loops, that would be helpful too (though I know I dont have to do it that way). Do they sell trim thats already like that?

Thanks in advance! Smiley

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Cherries! Tank top with rouched bust on: February 25, 2007 12:30:40 PM
Hiya! I have tons of fabric that I need to start putting to good use. And since it is starting to get warmer down here in texas, I decided to make a tank top!

Its longer than it looks in the pics, I should have straightened it out a bit




Close up of the rouched (sp?) part. I used elastic.


And a close up of the fabric/trim


Its a little sheer so I have to wear another black tank underneath it but I still love it! And it would be cute to wear over a swim suit at the beach Smiley Sorry the pics are a little orange, I took em in the bathroom :/ I hope you like it!
