Those are really nice drawings
Just made my mum and myself a poppy each for this year (don't worry we still donate). My first attempt, might add a green leaf if I find some green wool.
I have green wool that I won’t be using. Drop me a pm if I can help.
Thank you for the kind offer but my grandma has just given me another big bag of wool and there's a few balls of green. do you crochet?
I can do a bit but never tried making anything that way. I was to,d oh you won’t be able to crochet so went home looked on youtube and had a go then next day said you said I won’t be able to do this lol.
Haha go you!
I tried doing it about a year ago but found it too hard and then tried again a few months ago and something just clicked in my head and I really like it now, Gonna have a go at crochet amigurumi next I think
I want to learn to crochet different things.
I learnt a lot watching this lady's videos. She makes it pretty clear what she's doing and easy to follow along.
I’ll save that link and take a look.
I have a very old electric sewing machine which has gone wonky and I can't get it to stitch properly.
I've been quoted £70 for a service (repair could be more if a part is needed).
Looking at just buying new for similar price. Not worth spending more as I don't use very often.
Has anyone got/used either the Janome 2032 £79 or Brother LS14 £79?
If so, what is your opinion of them for simple sewing, repairs, etc.
Or other recommendations?
I can't really help @Lurcherlad as I have a 20 year old Pfaff that was incredibly expensive at the time that's still going strong (mainly cos I don't use it much )
But Amazon have loads of reviews on both and currently the Brother is available for £69.99.
@Lurcherlad If it were me and I could afford to I would get the old one repaired as it would probably outlast a new entry level one which is likely to be less robust and have poorer quality components.
I want to raise a bit of pocket money so I am making scented candles in teacups. I'm sorry if this has been asked before but I'm looking for advice on selling them. Craft fairs and Christmas markets are fair enough but if I got local gift shops to take them, should I charge them, say, 75% of what I think they will retail for? Any advice welcome. Thanks in advance.
Hi guys, some beautiful work on here, just had a quick glance through!
I wondered if there is anyone here who could make a greyhound soft toy.. Either knitted or one of those sock dogs... Or guide me into making my own. I'd like to make a little copy of our grey who we lost last year xx
I think you'll find the shops will suggest a proce and tell you how much commission they want. One shop I sold through took 50% !
Not sure if you know the regs, but you might find this useful.
Made 2 of these christmas collars today, one for my Grandma's dog Winnie and one for Izzy-boo.
Scruffy boo modeling hers
Some of my recent crochet christmas gift makes.
A little budgie for my grandma (looks a bit seagullish but of well)
And a little hedwig for my best friend.
And a flower headband for myself.
I like the budge @PawsOnMe
I have been trying my hand at acrylic pouring:
I really like that effect. How do you do it ?
I started dabbling in soapstone carving. I was quite pleased with my first attempt.
