Fake edit: @jacktrash BROCHET!!!
Does anyone have any advice for satin stitching with satin thread? My machine hates it with a burning passion. Thread snapped every few inches. I tried changing the tension, but every setting, from lowest to highest, was about the same. Taking it apart and cleaning/oiling it helped a little, but not much. I'm working with a Singer FashionMate if that helps.
Has anyone here done sewing commissions before? I'm trying to figure out what the charge.
At least $15/hr plus cost of materials. Don't go any lower than that, feel free to go higher.
the tailor at my job is getting $18 an hour for basic alterations, and he's not even very good
Blanket!!! (and pattern)
I love working with mandalas so much!
Spoiler: at least i love it when my hands aren't dying and my vision isn't blurring XD
:O omg that's gorgeous. thank you for posting the pattern, i really want to try it now!
it's so beautiful!
Well I think I know hat I'm gifting my Nana for Christmas this year.
@auxanges BABE LOOK
I have spent a ridiculous amount of time getting this far. (Crochet is not my favorite fiber art.) As such, I refuse to go back and undo the raspberry just because I found a better pink.
Oof yeah I've done that pattern. it's a pain. Looks really good tho!
I FINISHED the first spin of my Starburst fiber!
Next step is to attempt chain plying, which should preserve the color order. I have never chain plied before, so fingers crossed for this one, boys.
Then I decided that while I'm on a roll, I might at well finish another first time yarn project and I FINALLY dyed that Merino that I've had sitting around for more than a year. The purple turned out crazy vibrant and next time I'm only going to use one teaspoon instead of two. It's so intense my phone camera has a hard time picking it up. I had to use three teaspoons of the blue just to try and get the color deep enough to balance out. I think it turned out wonderful anyway, especially considering I know next to nothing about this dye except that ti already has he acid in it.
more shitpostsampler working
I'm trying to chart out a pattern and I can't for the life of me decide what I like better re: the decreases
OPTION ONE: more p2t heavy, preserves the cabling more
OPTION TWO: tons of decreases spaced out by non decrease rows, preserves the general structure/shape more
Finished my first ever commission piece! A Grecian inspired dress for a friend.
Spoiler: Big pics
Working on a new cross stitch pattern!
Spoiler: Taako's good out here.
I have to figure out at least the hat, maybe other accessories. Chopping knife? Onions?

I have finished the pattern and begun the cross stitch!
am trying to make witch hats for everyone, but the brim experiment continues to fail. does anyone have tips for that?
