Plush-making has been an amazing hobby, but I think it's now time for me to move on. Thanks, everyone, for your support throughout my journey, and apologies to those who started following me expecting more.
I made an indy game!
The humble little indy game I’ve been working on is finally up on the App Store! Get it here!: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id884931157 This is was my first experience taking a complete game from concept to market solo. It's also why I've been away from DA for so long :P Please give it a try if you have an iOS device! If you like it, spread the word and leave a review! If not… well you can still leave a review; I appreciate any feedback you’re willing to offer :). The Android version is in the works, so stay tuned. Thanks for checking it out!
What kind of long-pile fabrics do you use?
I've never worked with long-pile fabrics before so I thought I'd ask here in case someone who sees this has. I'd like to make something that would have a minky body with an identically-coloured but much more shaggy tail. What would you folks recommend shopping for in this case? Thanks for any help!
How do you deal with Minky seams?
So one minor but persistent problem I've had when sewing with Minky is the way the fibers sometimes get caught in the seams, leaving a relatively prominent groove. This also happens to some degree when embroidering on any substantially-napped fabric. I've tried searching online about this quirk, but have not found any articles addressing it. Have any of you who have worked with Minky experienced this problem, or is it just me? If the former, how do you resolve it? Thanks for any help!
Need recommendations for new Embroidery Software!
So it looks like Sierra is discontinuing the free version of Stitch Era, Stitch Era Universal, sometime in 2013. The announcement was actually issued early last month, but I only noticed it today while creating the embroidery stitch files for the next pony. I had a good run with Stitch Era, but would prefer to explore and switch to other embroidery software as soon as possible. Do any of you have recommendations for good alternatives? It'd be nice if they were free, but I wouldn't mind paying for them if they're priced reasonably. Candidates must be able to export to Brother's PES stitch file format, and preferably be able to import vectors
I'd very much like to get back into it at some point, but I've been so preoccupied with life issues and other things recently, I thought it only fair to assume that my already-terrible productivity won't improve anytime soon. Thanks for the vote of confidence, though, and thanks for having been there for me practically from the beginning
yes but editing a pattern so much that its different it becomes a new pattern in which you alone hold. that is why I was asking if your patterns was for sale if your stopping because yours are much better than valley's IMO.
I'll miss seeing your plushies but I understand that you're moving on. You're an amazing artist and I hope you succeed with whatever you choose to do next! If you'd ever like to chat sometime you know where to find me. <3
Well i suppose if you feel thats best, you had beautiful plushies and itll be a shame that they will no longer be available to admire. I hope that one day you come to find your motivation to sew again, im sure itll be fun again some day <:3 !
