I usually "wing it" when making bags however I found this video awhile back and I do like it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AgT8QJ9Of3o
I used up alot of odd fabrics I had and what is nice is they fold up fairly small so I can bundle them together and keep in they car for shopping
I haven't, but my dad taught one of their dogs to bark "soft" when he wanted out early in the morningso it wouldn't wake my mom. We could also get the dog to bark quiet by saying" the baby's sleeping".
Yes, I often see a color then figure out what to do with it. I do not have a stash, though. I may have one tote with odds and ends of leftover yarn. I try to make the yarn up as I buy it.
I had that during my first pregnancy. Scared the **** out of several people when it happened in public. It may have happened once in my second but after that it never happened again.
Given building codes, ADA etc. businesses have to follow US store should be compliant. As far as prices being different at self checkout, that too is doubtful since major chains have computer-coordinated checkouts
I use the self checkouts when I have a small amount of things. Anytime I have anything "special" like alcohol or other restricted items I go thru regular lanes. If I'm shopping at Target and want to use coupons, I don't use self checkout. Someone has to OK the coupon and make sure you deposit it so there is no time-saving advantage
We have a dog in the family that is going thru this right now(also diabetic). Not in pain or anything, but like in a constant state of confusion.
Bundles of dishcloths are popular here. A few years ago the messy bun hats sold well. Smaller impulse items seem to sell better than larger items. People like to pick up generic type items for last minute gifts.
It's not always about not appreciating or valuing the work. Everyone has a price point regarding what they will pay for an item. While I can recognize the work and skill that goes into making a hat, I would not pay $30-40 for one. I quilt. I see quilts being sold near me for $1200,1500 and up. Many are truly a work of art, but I would not spend that much for something to cover my bed. Not that they aren't worth it, but I wouldn't spend that.
My DD woke up from a nap to discover one cat brought a small snake inside to show her.
While I haven't used the service I do have a friend that works as one of the shoppers. She loves it. And they do pay close attention to the quality of produce etc. so the customer gets the best they have.
Decide the measurements you need then multiply. Ex. Original size is 25.5w, if you want yours to be 50 inches, double the stitches adjusting for the 30 St repeat. Make it as long as you want then.
Shared with my son in law, his job today was to bathe the cats.
I made one in worsted, using Mandala from Lion Brand. It was a couple years ago so my memory is foggy. I believe I used a cake + partial for it. I was pleased with the results. I struggled with the pattern, tossing it aside several times. Finally found fiber spyder's video and it all came together for me.
I have seen it before, always makes me laugh.
