1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crocheted Corset -- Lined? on: October 13, 2008 02:06:36 AM
I am currently making a mock corset in crochet, vertical lines of rust and chocolate in Lion Brand Vanna's Choice yarn. I love this yarn, I wanted to use it for something special because I'm cheap. <3

Its going to go up and be fishnet in the breast area, the upper arms will have sleeves to the elbow (to hide the obvious problem area there) and then like, two inches of fishnet there just for accent.  (This corset is not really meant to be functional, obviously, because it is yarn and yarn does stretch and cap no matter the stitch!)

What I'm asking is that before I put the eyelets or whatever onto the corset, should I line it?  The other areas will not be lined obviously, but should I do it for added strength so the corset will be able to be tightened without gapping?

1) Crocheted corset top.
2) Big brown dinosaur.
3) Crocheted sundress (COMPLETELY CROCHETED. I've barely finished the bodice and I've worked for 4 monthes!).
4) New pair of sleeping socks.
5) Crocheted patchwork blouse.

I make clothes.

1, 3 and 5 are very big projects. Sad  ESPECIALLY three.

Retirement area. . . that hurts. lol Even the old people are trying to get out, though. Its a dying town.

No jobs, crappy people, businesses shutting down.

But no, the craft section took up a great deal of space, I thought.  They even have a Michaels in Sebring, you know! <3

(The elderly are nevereverever in books a million. I was there for pretty much hours (about 13 hours out of the day), gift wrapping outside, and reading inside for quite a few weeks. I never saw anyone but families and teenagers. And there are alot of kids who are looking for more than four wheelers and school lemme tell you!)

WARNING. Sad Reply got way too long and is mostly irrelavant to the topic at hand.

Mostly, I suggest producing the book as an ebook first to test the waters. Then shop around for a publisher (make sure to be in speakings with more than one to get a good idea of which one can offer what!).  You'd do fine with an ebook for now. You should definitely get started on your own. That way, they can see what YOU can do, and for any next books, they'd come to you for collaboration that you were talking about. Definitely worth it to go ahead and finish the book. Smiley

Actually, in any Books a Million the craft book area is a substantial one. Several shelves over a wall space dedicated.  Or at least it was in our little podunk of Sebring, FL when I lived there.

I believe over 350 different crafting manuals at a time?
7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Arizona Business Owners! Help! on: July 29, 2008 09:17:10 PM
I've recently relocated to Arizona from Florida. The change in state legislature is not to be reckoned with!

I am expected to apply for a tax id and business license to so much a sell something on Ebay, and I'm a little shaky with all this. Anyone else know if this is really necissary, and if it is, exactly how I would go about doing this?

Help me, fellow crafters! I know I'm a horrible lurker, but I just don't know where I have to begin!

Would I just apply for it at the court house the same day we go down to apply for a wedding license?

I've started working on a crocheted dress, and I'm quite enthused. I'm my mind it all works perfectly, and its not even coming out badly--I'm just curious if anyone else has done this before.  Any hints or speculation?

Hopefully this dress isn't a complete disaster xD.
