    Good to know! I really only ever made canvas shopping bags and other small rectangular purses, so nothing really, like, curvy and complicated
    I was thinking about making it small because i dont have much scrap fabric, not enough for a double layer, but maybe i can make a single layer mock just to see how it goes in the sewing department until I can go get supplies after the holidays when there will be less idiots without masks out and about/can order online without a post office sniper immediately zeroing on me

    Sounds like a good plan, yeah! Just felt like pointing this out before you start cursing the gods and devils about doing something in tiny because turning out small pieces of fabric can be hell (and i strongly recommend a chopstick to help you. even for bigger pieces, to get into the corners properly)

    Sorry i thought i had responded!!!
    Yeah corners are hell. I did a lined and reinforced tote bag for my mom and the corners were Bad due to the thick fabric


    I saw a girl on youtube doing paper mockups of corsets to see the general shape and proportions and the idea honestly blew my mind.

    oh paper mockups are GREAT

    I make my plushie pattern by literally constructing them from crafting card! It's so much easier if you can look at the thing in 3D before you start cutting.

    Doing some decluttering here at home these past few days, and also at my mom's; she's hoarder-lite and I havent been there as often as i had hoped because... inertia. But we got a couple trashbags of clothes to donate out of each apartment, and while i am mostly done here (still have to get rid of expired makeup) there is a ton to do at her place.

    Our bedframe also broke and we got a new one that is also, like, a chest. For more storage space. So we can keep our bedsheets and comforters and quilts and extra pillows all in one actual place... as soon as it arrives, which should be who the fuck actually knows.

    Visits at the clinic are back again and i still havent studied a thing for the clinics we will have this semester @@ i need to get books from the library before its too late and i have to make do with ebooks. They are much more practical but i dont focus as well with them...

    Me: I don't want to have children
    Me: listens to this song and am immediately overwhelmed by the drive of motherhood

    Had a cool dream today. It was about a 20-something single mother who meets this group of creepy siblings in a grocery store and helps them and turns out they are the three yougest children of eight, their family is super rich, and they live alone with their other siblings in a mansion. There is no staff and their father doesnt live with them because their mother was murdered and the oldest daughter is in prison for the murder. Either the mother or the oldest daughter was played by Lady Gaga.

    The kicker: all of them have magical powers with very specific effects. The second oldest daughter couldn't talk, but she could replay thiga that happened in closed rooms in other closed rooms, as if it was a play: if you entered a room where she wanted to show you something you would be in the other room, no matter where it was or the size difference, and everything would play as it happened, with people doing things around you. They would all freeze when the memory was over and you'd have to leave the room, close the door and then go back to see the room you originally wanted to go. One of the sons had a scent-related mind control - he could program people to execute an action when they smelled one specific scent. The youngest boy was very overpowered but I dont remember his power, just that it was overpowered and the other kids were afraid of him, and that he had imprinted very hard on the single mother and was kind of creepy, in that five year old creepy child kind of way.

    So this poor woman freaks out when she finds out they all have superpowers and the murder and stuff, but these are children and teens and she feels responsible so she starts coming over to help and then gets involved in the investigation of the murder. The father doesnt want her around for vague threatening reasons, but the second oldest daughter keeps showing her a dinner party they had the night of the murder (she cant show the actual murder because it took place in the garden and not inside) and the oldest daughter may or may not be innocent and being framed, and the mother may or may not be dead because there are creepy things happening in the mansion, and it is overall a supernatural murder mystery.

    It was VERY interesting and I want to watch all the episodes now ): but it only exists in my brain

    There was also a daughter who could make copies of herself in a mirror, and in a scene she pulled them out of the mirrors by the hand and it had cool visuals. She could make three copies at the same time and they were mirrored images and would pass out and die if they touched another person skin-to-skin, but she used them in a bait and switch at the subway with someone who was pursuing her and the woman.

    The other 50% of my dna apparently has gotten back in contact with my mom, after 30 years. I have no idea what he wants however the urge to do stupid shit to my hair is strong. The salons are closed because *laughs nervously in Brazilian* so I am going to have to watch MORE hair bleaching fail videos to stop myself from doing something not advisable

    i went to answer a question our professor asked and already started stuttering cause I got unused to talking to people, so i then forgot everything I knew about the neurology of equilibrium and movement aside from the cortex-cerebellum connection and then stuttered more and got a heart rate of 120 bpm.

    If we want the rewards of being understood of being in class we have to submit to the mortifying ordeal of introducing ourselves to the professor


    speaking of which, i fucking hate it.

    my husband is A Gamer and thus has an instinct to glue LED tape around unsuspecting decór similar to my instinct to put shiny breakable things over precariously piled leatherbound books

    Ooh, can you link to the kind of thing you're talking about? I've been having more frequent migraines recently and Light is Bad.

    just any LED strip lights or tape lights will do! Ours is like these:[​IMG]

    We have it installed behind the TV and have more normal fairy lights around the kitchen entrance, and our apartment is small enough that these alone are enough to provide light where it's needed when I'm migraney. You can install them around the ceiling too, the colors are customizable and you can install a dimmer as well to control the intensity better. This image is a bit too much imho but it gives an idea:

    [​IMG]

    it is actually fantastic when I'm photophobic. For some reason some colors hurt less and it's great having just the more diffuse source of lower intensity light you know? I used to use candlelight when I was younger and/or lived alone and these are obviously a lot safer too. I HIGHLY recommend this for people with migraines because photophobia is literally the worst for me - I could deal with most sounds when I have my episodes but strong lightning is just... very nausea inducing.
