151  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Adventure Time with Finn and Jake Swap? on: August 03, 2011 10:32:40 PM
I've never participated in a swap before, but I'd be all over an Adventure Time one. I've had a million ideas for different stuff to make for a while now, so being able to swap with other fans would be super awesome.

OMG how fun! I love rainbows and unicorns. That's the best looking vomit I've ever seen.

Oh wow, I loved Rainbow Brite as a kid! I really like the way you filled up the space with all the fun rainbow designs. And carrying the rainbows on into the hoop? Wonderful touch. Since you asked for C&C, though, I would point out that the colors of the rainbow are in the wrong order. I know I'm probably the only one in the world who cares or ever notices but once I see it I can't unsee it. LOL, it's a curse. Either way, they actually go (from outside in) red, orange, yellow, green, blue, (sometimes indigo, depending on who you ask) and purple.

Either way, I think you did an awesome job and your swap partner should love it. I know I do.

Oh those are fantastic! I love the Octonauts and you definitely did them justice. How ever did you decide which ones to make? You said you have developed a love for penguin plushes, you should have a look at Gunter from Adventure Time.

This is a thing of beauty. I love Gunter. and I love this plush.

Honestly, this doll creeps the hell out of me. That's good, though, because the real Vince does too and you captured his essence perfectly. Awesome job.

I may have this pattern, but I suck at sewing from a pattern. My 5 yo dd would insist that I at least give this unicorn a try though...

The pattern really isn't difficult - it was the first one I ever used for a stuffed animal and while the first one turned out sort of wonky, it was entirely due to my lack of experience with sewing in general. And even that was still a respectable first effort that my 4 year old niece saw no flaws in. I guess all I'm saying is that even if you suck at sewing from a pattern, I bet it'll turn out fine and your daughter will love it. Smiley

Rainbows and Unicorns are like to of my favourite things!

OMG me too. I really love this fabric because it reminds me of the wallpaper I had in my room when I was a little girl. If I could find that wallpaper again, I would totally put it up in my craft room.
160  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: New to sewing....ugh. on: April 14, 2011 11:34:17 AM
Yeah, I've only been sewing off and on for a year and I can promise that it does get better. The most important thing I've found is just to go very slowly until you're really comfortable going faster. I am not comfortable so I keep my machine's speed slider all the way down most of the time. Also, my machine came with a couple of accessories that make certain straight-line-sewing tasks much easier. I don't know the name of the foot but it has a little metal sort-of-blade that lets me butt my fabric up against that and makes my topstitching pretty much perfect every time.The other is the quilting guide that makes sewing parallel lines pretty simple - I have a much easier time lining my fabric up with a physical barrier than a line.

But yeah, like monstergramma said, practice and go slowly.
