Pinned toot

Greetings to all the new people! I have been here awhile but don’t have an post so: most of my these days is made with my sewing robot, a RPi-connected embroidery machine that I do unconventional things with, like make plushies and fabric (with a bias). I post a lot (like, a LOT) about process and mistakes, including what I’m learning as I run my new Etsy shop. I live in South Jersey, just across the Delaware from , am a mom, and I have .

Just when I figured I wouldn't restock the beanies since they weren't moving any more, I got an entire order. Very pansy-themed, color-wise.

(still not planning to restock, other than what I make while shooting the tutorial)

I mean this is basically the equivalent to the beanie *hatchling* so the scale isn't quite so crazy.

Hilariously I started out by calling the beanies "Tiny" so the word has basically lost all meaning now.

I forgot to post the other sheet of stickers I got. Foil dragons!

These have been out since August(!) of last year(!!) but if I knew they were coming I forgot.

Next challenge is gonna be making ones that do the "heads and necks make a heart" thing.

Just need onnnnnne more.

(Found Mom's/Grandmas' thimbles.)

I used my smaller cutting mat to take pictures for the bagmaking tutorial I posted on the blog. The flip side of it is a padded ironing mat, so normally it lives underneath the cat mat on the worktable, as extra padding. I had to wake Ramses up to get it, and he "helped" me take pictures for the supplies-needed shots.

This shipment requires my very smallest box. (And does not involve the quarter.)

I miscalculated and it's a little too tall to look up at the "adult" dragons. Can I sew it even tinier? TUNE IN TOMORROW

(and that is why I had the light green in the machine.)

Just used the light green I had on my machine for baby dragons (new design!!) so I didn't think about matching the tray. Guess I'll make the next tray in the lighter green, or make a sheet of darker green dangles.

USPS has a thing where you can request pickup of a package (because apparently carriers aren't supposed to take packages that you just leave in the mailbox), and you get a confirmation when the carrier scans the package which, at least in my case, is when they take it out of the mailbox.

What I'm saying is, it took setting up an Etsy business to do it but I have basically installed a thing that notifies me when the mail arrives. 😆
