Weekend Links, January 29th

Read It
notes from Harder, Better, Faster Stronger Blogging by not martha.  Am I going to cause my blog to implode by linking to a roundup of links in a post about links?  This post has so much useful info packed into one place and is especially useful for all of us poor slobs who couldn’t go to Alt Summit.

Business Tips: Pricing for Profit from Team EcoEtsy (via the Etsy Success Newsletter).  I think the part of my business that induces the most stress is pricing.  This gem of a blog post even includes a pricing spreadsheet for download.

Make It
T-Shirt Pom Poms by Craftaholics Anonymous (via Crafts & Deals).  These are SO STINKING CUTE!  I have no idea what I’m going to attach them to, but I’ll find something!

Technique: Understanding Bias Tape from Dana at Made.  I make a ridiculous amount of bias tape.  My sister and my mom bought me a Simplicity Bias Tape Maker for Christmas that makes the ironing part super fast, but cutting the bias strips still takes forever.  This post has great directions on how to fold a big ol’ piece of fabric so you can cut strips quickly.

Buy It
Ruffle Fabric.  Holy moley, how have I never sewn with any of this?!  Wouldn’t it just make the cutest leggings for B?  Or maybe a little dress like this one?  Aaaack, must buy now!!

See (or write!) anything good this week?  Share it in the comments!

  1. LOVE the pom pom....totally cute! And the ruffle fabric! I've been too nervous to buy - afraid I'd mess it up somehow! It's just so cute as is!


Thanks for commenting - I love to hear from you!
