1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Need to sell patterns -- where? on: June 25, 2015 06:07:02 PM
That might work.  I hadn't thought about that as an option.  Thanks!
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Need to sell patterns -- where? on: June 22, 2015 10:09:27 AM
I have a boxful of patterns I need to get rid of (destashing), but I'm not sure the best place/way to sell them.  Etsy would be an obvious choice for target audience, but I don't have an established store, so I'm thinking I'd end up paying a lot of listing fees for stuff that never gets seen/sold.

Do any of you have recommendations based on personal experience of what is a good route for "one-off" sales of supplies like that, as opposed to an ongoing business?
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: "What do YOU Journal About?!" Ideas thread! on: September 15, 2013 03:52:19 PM
Jillie, this is one of the most memorable posts I've ever read.  I still use your little numbering trick, and just came back here to re-read your post after all these years.  I would've been smart to keep all of my book notes in my journal with everything else!  (Since learning your page numbering system that might actually be possible.  I was always afraid if I mixed anything in, I'd never find it again.)  I have all of my book notes in separate files.  Kinda crazy.  Roll Eyes

Oh, a cobbler is a great suggestion!  He'd be far more familiar with working with leather than the average tailor.

If you can't find the metal ruler, I wonder if stiff cardboard would work?  Linen can be pretty ornery like that!

The others have all answered the question well, but sometimes hearing things explained different ways helps, so I will add my explanation to the mix.  You will fold the fabric and cut out all the other pieces as shown, leaving a space for that piece.  Then unfold the fabric and pin that piece into place and cut it out.
9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: A lil help plz: How do I cut my fabric if my center-back is tapered?? on: October 30, 2012 12:25:51 PM
I don't exactly understand what you're trying to do, either.  I can envision three possibilities:

1) The center back line is tapered, but it's still a straight line, to be cut on the fold.  In this case, you would line it up completely along the fold, and it's not supposed to necessarily be quite on-grain.

2) The center back line is not a completely straight line, in which case it's not physically possible to line it up (or at least, not all of it) along the fold.

3) The center back should be a straight line along the grain, but then the back of the jacket is tapered by sewing in a dart after cutting.

If there's another option, I'm not envisioning it, so I'm not sure how to help. ??

Is the snap sewn on, or is it attached like blue jean buttons/snaps?  I don't know a lot about sewing with leather, but I would think it would be tricky to replace, because it's probably not stitched.

As for adding a zippered layer - I think that would be possible.  It looks like there's a seam just outside the button placket, and I think a good tailor could sew the inner layer on in such a way that it follows that seam.
