A few folks have contacted me about my tutorials being translated. First off, thanks so much for bringing it to my attention and I actually appreciate it that my tutorials are translated in other languages. =D

I’m hesitant to endorse these as I can’t guarantee the accuracy. Being bilingual myself, I try to keep verbiage in any tutorials I publish simple and to the point so that automated translations (via google or altavista) won’t have too much trouble with the conversion or if translated, will be coherent enough for anyone who needs it in their language.

If  you want to translate my tutorials (as long as it isn’t something I sell at Etsy or a pattern. That’s a huge no no.) that’s cool! You’re welcome to! Please link back to my website and include credit to me. ^_~

I also wanted to address certain requests that I get that probably won’t get answered and that is for folks asking to be “mentored.” I love teaching but given the hours I put into working (being self employed and all) I don’t have the time. I love to help and see other people improve but I just really can’t afford to. I’m glad the tutorials I publish help out a lot of folks to get started on either crochet or doll repainting but I’m afraid I can’t offer the sort of hand holding some folks seem to ask of me. Sorry about that! All I can offer you is that keep trying, experiment, and don’t be afraid to make mistakes!

Part 1 of my continuing series on printing! Today we look at colour and that oft asked question of “Why do my prints looks so different from the screen what happened”. Part 2 covers DPI and file setup, and Part 3 looks at making PDFs in InDesign.

NEW AVAILABLE ART PROGRAM
It seems to be a mix between SAI and photoshop, simplified. It even has a stabalizer that works even with the mouse.
Best of all, it’s free, and works for both Mac and Windows.
To give it a try, head right on down to http://firealpaca.com/



Reblogging for artsy people that follow me. Also a lovely name for a program.

I highly recommend FireAlpaca for everyone.

Today on Tutorial Sunday:

Monster High Skirt, made in less than 10 minutes. 

All seam allowance are 0.5cm

(Don’t choose a thick fabric the belt would not look nice.)

For those who can’t read the step by step properly because it’s too small here is a bigger version. 

I know I press a lot, but trust me, ironing when you sew makes your life so much easier! Especially when dealing with curves. Clipping and Ironing help make a nice smooth curve, that works when you sew for human too. 

If you got any questions or fancy another pattern drop me an mp ^ç^

[The doll I used it a Novi star Roma on a Draculaura body.]
