When selling on the web, whether it be your online shop, on Etsy or Ebay, try to include as many shots of your handmade product as you can. Buyers like to see as much of the item as they can. You may think that your product is extra soft and cuddly, well try and convey this message to the buyer. Consider what makes your item special.

Un quilt mediterráneo contemporáneo para Sitges 2014

“Menorca”, France Buyle 2014 Os presento mi modesta contribución a la exposición AEP, que seguro no será ni la más grande — mis quilts no suelen ser gigantes nunca — ni la más espectacular ni la que más horas de trabajo conlleva. Al menos entra en el tema del concurso sin estrechar la imaginación, y espero que también quepa en la categoría “Contemporáneo” en la cual lo presenté, a ver que opináis. Este año, había que escoger la categoría en el momento de enviar el quilt, y la verdad, amigas quilters, es que mientras es fácil descartar algunas categorías, no es tán sencillo elegir la que toca. No me costó en absoluto decidir, por ejemplo, que este quilt no podía competir para nada en las categorías siguientes: Interchangeable Bowtie Onesie….with Attached Suspenders (2 variations. Oh my word……I’m completely loving this whole “boy” change-of-pace.

How to Sew a Blazer - Sleeves and Collar

If you are new here, you might want to subscribe via email so you don't miss a post. Hello again! Today in the how to sew a blazer sewalong we’re covering how to set in our blazer sleeves and how to make the collar and stand. In case you missed it, on Monday we talked patternmaking, on Tuesday we covered darts and the front, and on Wednesday we sewed the pockets, side seams and shoulders. Let’s start with the sleeves. When you turn your sleeves right side out, and lay them side by side, you’ll see a difference in where the seams land. Now with your sleeves right side out and your blazer wrong side out, pin your sleeve to the blazer, matching the under sleeve seams with the side piece seams. To get the sleeve to lie really nicely, you can also clip to (but not through) the stitch line all around the sleeve.
