1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Need advice on blog giveaways on: July 13, 2011 08:01:29 PM

Just make sure you follow the 'bloggers rules' that have been handed down from the FTC. And you might want to check the FTC for the guidelines although the site above gives a good overview. Just fyi.

Also, nice pillow.   Cool
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: I need an experienced opinion on how long/how much money this will take me...? on: July 13, 2011 07:50:17 PM
Joann's is great in that you get to feel the fabric right there but there are other alternatives, particularly for Kona cotton and such. Fabric.com is the cheapest I've seen for Kona cotton and with only $35 you get free shipping (and not crappy shipping either). I highly recommend them for things like the basics like that. Good luck! Also connectingthreads.com is great for thread, solids, and batting. But if you have coupons and a Joanns nearby or can get to one of their sales like Labor Day sale, Columbus day, etc. you can even get an extra 10% off your purchase (sometimes more) depending.

I love it! I really want to make a WoW quilt...great idea on making it double sided. I'm mainly a horde player but like to dabble on the alliance side with friends. Smiley

That turned out really good. I never would've thought to put those two colors together (I'm more of a "safe" sewer - I'm trying to break out of that though). It works great!
9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: To prewash or not to prewash, that is the question... on: August 21, 2010 04:38:53 AM
I prewash always.  Smiley I also work at a fabric store. Bolts come in all wrapped up pretty...and somewhere between getting stocked in their proper places, some might end up on the dusty floor or outside on the ground where stock comes in, sometimes customers (or children of customers) like to wipe their boogers on the fabric. With that in mind, I always end up tossing every scrap of fabric in the washer before I use it, even if it's just going to live life as a wall hanging forever after.
10  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Looking for purse and bag patterns that CAN be used to make items to sell on: June 02, 2010 02:38:53 PM
Off the top of my head is the free pattern by verypurpleperson.com that she recently did. jcarolinecreative.com has a hobo bag tutorial and according to the end of the tutorial, you can sell what you make from the pattern. Another one is the person who did the tutorial for The Lindie Bag (google it)...I'm pretty sure that one is okay to sell if you make it. And according to the terms of use on Burdastyle.com, those patterns that are considered "open source sewing patterns" can be "used without restrictions".

That said, there's a difference between using someone's pattern (even if it's okay to sell what you make from it) and going around saying you designed it yourself and it's "your" pattern. I think everyone likes a little credit now and then.

And I agree with the above posters. Eventually, it's just easier to do your own patterns. Smiley
