So, I did it. I bought an embroidering sewing machine. Why? I saw the cool stuff you can make with patterns from Urban Threads (like patches. AND LACE!!!). And the cool stuff Greg Dean’s (from Real Life Comics) wife has made. In fact, I blame Greg entirely for this.
Anyway, I’ve opened an etsy shop with a few of the things I’ve made from patterns I have bought. I hope to one day be able to make patterns of my own, but OH MY GOD have you seen how much the software is? I downloaded a trial and holy crap is it complicated. Really steep learning curve. And I supposed some artistic talent is required. Hrm. I seem to lack that as well. Perhaps I can outsource the creation of art to my sister. Hey, I’d give her a cut of any sales!
