It's nice to see Sachel, Jack and Cliff again, but I do miss Rod and Sy.

That gave me a good giggle this morning, MrsBowles! Rod's my favorite. Smiley

hubba hubba! these would be so fun as gifts.

I have been lucky that a few different folks have commissioned these is larger bunches to give away as gifts!

Well, I am practically speechless! And I have looked through the whole thing closely and TWICE! The first time with Eric who was super impressed and tickled. And honored, too!  WOW! I knew that you were going to have some kick-a details, but jumpin' jiminy your details have detailed details! Dr Hedwith, that jerk, does not deserve such a cool lab, not one bit! (and he's going to get a less cool lab here in the next several days - ahem)

How big is the inside of your shadow box? I know how teensy weensy some of your pieces are but the fact that you have so dang many of them is throwing off my understanding of scale, I think.

ACK! This ROCKS! YOU rock!
33  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: Pricing for craft fair? on: March 17, 2017 07:33:12 PM
I think it's important to track the time it takes you to make these when figuring out pricing as well as material costs (including tags, etc.). If you are spending not much more than $1 (at most) on materials (including gas/shipping to procure them) AND you can make AT LEAST enough of them in an hour to earn AT LEAST minimum wage including 5-15% for overhead, then your prices are on track.

Some points though:
Sewing is skilled labor, particularly the applique you've one and deserves quite a bit more than minimum wage.
That overhead goes to cover travel time, booth charges, display costs, electricity you use at your house, wear and tear (servicing) on your machine & shears, etc.

Thanks, y'all!

Oh, that is too good. You shoved me right off the edge of the rabbit hole with that second last fella in the plaid. I went googling lumberjack fabric and found Deborah Edwards, Robert Kaufman's Burly Beavers, a bunch of thermoses, and so much Canadiana! What have you DONE?!
I need new oven mitts and hot pads but I'm afraid I'd have to hide these from the children, lol.

I have fat quarters of the beavers and the thermoses! Not sure what I'm going to do with those yet...

Plus, athletes, outdoorsmen, construction workers, and historical patriots (?)! WOO!

And the backs are like so.

39  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Re: Belt Buckle "Holster" on: March 13, 2017 07:14:48 PM
I also have a small collection of large belt buckles (which I've bought only because I like them, but never actually wear) and this is a brilliant idea to display them. So glad you shared it with us all!


There is something special about them, isn't there? I had done several searches online for methods of displaying/storing them and the one piece I found on Ebay that inspired this was the ONLY one that even remotely utilized the features of the buckles to secure them. Here is the pin of the original which has many charms that mine does not: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/168885054751198019/
