    I love the fact that you get exactly what you want, and it has all of your personal modifications. But, as a rule, your not saving a ton of money....

    So far all I have made is a ton of stuff bags of various sizes and styles. The cottage industries have nothing to worry about from me. If sewing a crooked line if good then I am a expert.

    Working on an UQ right now. Total price for material is a little over $100. Now if only the quilt was for me. Got to equip the family so I'm not talking to myself in the woods.

    At least when you talk to yourself in the woods, only the animals and trees think your crazy.

    Two weeks ago I bought a brand new sew... "thread injector" I bought 2 meters of scrap material to practice on. I'm out of material and have used 500 yards of thread. I now have many small squares of nylon with 500 yards of stitches of different types in them. Now to order the good material for a project.

    Suggestions ?

    Start off with something big, thats what everyone else does!

    You do want to be "normal" like the rest of us don't you?

    I guess i have been blessed in this regard, that I haven't had these things happen. I think the worst thing that ever happened to me was slicing a very small slit in fabric that I had to patch. Other than that my projects have gone pretty good.

    I love the 'start cutting fabric only to realize 4 inches in that you wanted an extra 2" of length' moment. Oh well, that is when people get a sweet deal in the for sale thread lol.

    My biggest hangup, well one of them, is that I get halfway through a project after drying my paypal up for supplies only to realize that I want to tweak the design a bit. Another hangup is that I know I will never be 100% satisfied with said gear until tweak is made. So I sell said perfectly fine piece of gear to refuel my paypal, only to start the process all over again. Let's not talk about how many gear stashes I have made and I am still not 100% happy.

    I have come to realize that I love conceptualizing UQ's, love starting the project, but by the end I hate the **** thing. The last one is the first time I tried dual diff cut and I tell you, IT IS NOT WORTH IT. Friggin p!ssed me off lol. But I love the finished product and don't think I will redesign . . . well at least for another year . . . I need to post photos up in the diy section.
