    thank you! i can always use advice though if anyone has some. i lost some of the tension and found it hard to weave consistently bc i have hand tremors—if anyone has tips i would love them, i’d really enjoy darning more

    i've found it can be easier to get a nice tight weave if you go over 2 under 2, especially if you're working with thinner threads! darning is really fun, it adds so much personality even if you mess it up a little

    they are so cute!! normally I don’t get excited about the cute plushies genre of object but look at them!!!! my sibling made the design too, though I think they used bits of existing patterns.

    aren't they just!!! they might end up selling some online at some point, assuming they have the time and energy for it.

    @NorthernRiver and I are brainstorming about making reusable cloth pads for boxer briefs! I've gone down a small rabbit hole about belted reusable pads, meanwhile they are more thinking about like magnet options. Haven't really found any belted patterns that actually exist anymore, but there are enough pics that i figure I could try it out.

    If anyone has Thoughts on how to make pads work with boxer briefs that don't actually involve any alterations to the underwear, please let me know! (I know about Aisle/Lunapads' period boxers, I have a pair, but I think River is not really looking at buying/directing people to buy new underwear or sew things into their existing pairs)

    I genuinely love this fabric and need to do more with it. It’s so pretty.

    A friend wants to make this backpack but because the instructions are in russian she doesn't know the type of yarn that's being used there. anyone got a clue what that thick stuff is called so she can get the right supplies?

    That almost looks like t-shirt yarn, I forget if its available commercially

    TwoBrokenMirrors Merely a whitebait in the mayo of life

    it is! i think i have some yarn like that, it's not t-shirt but it looks like it has the same texture. sadly i can't remember what it's called; i don't think it came with a useful ball-band. but! i have definitely seen it around, and t-shirt yarn in general is certainly commercially available.

    The pink looks like either t-shirt yarn or some kind of acrylic yarn and I agree the white looks like fuzzy baby section yarn

    sooooo don't feel like you have to or anything, but my sibling did just set up an octokitten etsy over here... base price is $15 for a small one or $60 for a large one and you can request what colors you want!

    here is a rainbow one they finished the other day :D
