    Any Costume makers?

    I have no idea - hopefully something simple as I have to hand sew everything. Either going as an Assassin or a Dragon breeder

    Cross Stitch Tips

    Instead of using 2 threads and knotting I use 1 thread and double it up starting with the loop method - makes the work much neater

    Which paper

    When it comes to printing you can have the best paper in the world but if your printer isn't that great it'll come out flat and dull. If you want glossy then photo paper is best.

    Question for quillers

    That's the stuff I use in my tack making. Lethal stuff if you get it on your skin tho - oh and it dosen't come out of pj bottoms either

    Finally done

    Only taken me since last June to do lol. My first 16 count peice. In all fairness I hardly did any in November and non in December as was too dark. Then in New Year sales hubby got me a floor standing bendy light with a dimmer so I could stitch in winter again

    patchwork

    Well I've only done 1 and a bit so far and here's what I learnt. Much easier to cut your squares and make up each block (front,wadding and backing) THEN saw those together. Measure at least 3 times and make sure WELL pinned when you sew. I hand sew only and didn't double,triple measure and pin the backing well (did first peice the normal front the wadding and back) and well errm it's not a proper rectangle lol. The backing got gathered up in parts and too short in others hehe. I just used Metal ruler and quilters pencil with scissors Oh and ALWAYS lay out your design before comitting to sew Templates do help unless your mind is very scatting and using odd size squares and you go meh and wing it anyway rofl. Oh dear maybe I'm not cut out for quilting but they do the job hehe.
