FIRST I GOTTA MAKE A LIFE-SIZE BEE THOUGH https://www.scimex.org/newsfeed/worlds-biggest-bee-found
The Inkstitch people like the spider! 😊
I expect the overlap between "people who own embroidery machines" and "people who like jumping spiders" is probably not very large. Someday I will have the discipline to say, "that is fun but it is not serving the interests of running a business." Today is not that day.
Tomorrow's forecast doesn't look great for it either. 😜
And the pattern is published! It's not a *very* nice-looking PDF because this was not even supposed to be a project and I've already spent too much time on it. So let's call it a beta. Somebody try it out! https://silverseams.com/2019-02-20-jumping-spider-pattern.html
spiders (cute little spiders, but spiders) Show more
Okay, three spiders is more than enough: black one because that's what color they (mostly) are, brown one to photograph well, gray one done without embroidery.
Free pattern on the blog soon as I get it all put in a nice-looking PDF.
LB: My in-laws have an outdoor pond and one of the first fish they got came with the name "Fred." Somehow (our then-toddler was involved) the fish collectively became known as "Freds" or "Fred-Freds." I got the minky to make the original, red-and-white versions of that Choly Knight pattern for my in-laws in honor of the Freds, and in my headcanon they would both be male. 😆
still trying to get a good picture of plush spider eyes Show more
iPad in a Tryone bracket is okay for taking instructional pictures but not so great for taking pictures of a little black spider.
Someday when we get the 3d printer running again, I'm doing this over my cutting table. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2846958
multiple (but chibi) eyes Show more
So as expected, I started a tiny-Cthulhu pattern. Changed horses midstream and the eye highlights completely missed, so I ended the program, went to throw it away, and went... "haha looks like a spider."
ANYWAY MEET MY NEW JUMPING-SPIDER FRIEND
(who doesn't photograph well; there are more eyes there in the dark fur)
