1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Freelance costume maker on: June 28, 2011 02:22:58 AM
Hiya  Grin
I've finally got work as a freelance costume maker, but I'm having trouble pricing things I make. I often get given the fabric and patterns, or I make my own pattern, so its only really my time (+ electricity/ sewing thread ect) I don't want to under or over sell myself.
Any advice would be great  Smiley

They are adorable! What will you do with them all?

I've sold most of them apart from the first one I made, They were all made in batches over the last year or so, but I'm tempted to make more as people love them
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Mr Tumble, a recon (Loads of pics!) on: February 26, 2011 12:15:25 PM
I don't know if any of you guys are familiar with the Children's Tv character Mr Tumble (Its where I got my name from  Grin ) but he's HUGE here in England, and as the TV show is aimed at kids with Special Needs, there is very little merchandise.

So I took this doll

and this was born:

As my friends and family heard what I was doing, one bacame lots

Lots became more

and More after that  Cheesy I think I made about 25 in all

here's the last one I made as a to show how far I came with them

Here's a pic of Mr Tumble so you get an idea of what he was supposed to look like

We were even lucky enough to meet the guy who plays him and give him one which he loved  Kiss Unfortunately I didn't get a pic with it and him, but here's a pic of him with my dd

Sorry so many pics, but I loved making them  Cheesy

I made this dress which is from the 'Helena' Music video by My Chemical Romance.

Artists Impression of the dress

As she's the same size as me I did a bit of modelling  Cheesy

The back is shirred with lacing, Hopefully soon I'll get some better photos, but its too big for my dressform and dh is rubbish at taking phots. Its a shame because it looks better in RL than in the pics. It took me 3 goes to get it right but I really enjoyed making it  Smiley I'm tempted to keep it rather than give it to my friend  Cheesy

I LOVE these  Grin I'm looking into making some nappies myself, where did you get the poppers from? All I can find is metal ones, though I'm sure they would work, they just don't look as good.

Did you use PUL or minky on the outside? I'm doing 2-part ones, so the the nappy will be terry and the outer will be made of PUL

I know the one you're talking about, you could easily find a pattern for the shap of the dress, but I think it would have to be heavily alterd. As I remember it, the bodice is pleated heavily, which I think wouldn't be too hard to do.
