Tonight, as I head into work for the four measely hours I was scheduled for all week, I will be turning in my shop keys. This means living on a whole lot less than I was, which wasn't much. My schedule being the way it is due to classes, none of the places I have applied to will hire me. I am practicing my crochet, and getting out my sewing machine this weekend so that I can learn to make clothing for me and hopefully for profit. I am saving up for hemp yarns so that I can make crocheted hemp hats and tank tops for profit. Wish me luck.<br><br><br><br>
I just wanted to talk about it. Thank you for wasting your time on my post.

Me too except, I do make $25 a week.<br><br><br><br>
If you are good enough at sewing I recomend altering people's clothing to fit. If you make clothing, you have to make something high quality or unique because otherwise it's too much effort/ not profitable. The hemp sounds like a good idea.<br><br><br><br>
There is a person around here who makes baskets(Used to make?) and tries to sell them for $50-100. I'm sure it represents the effort that went into these, unfortunatly I can pick up a basket at the thrift store for about a buck.<br><br><br><br>
I've paid slighter higher prices for things before because I believe in supporting inovative local people who are DIY VS big facteries in China, but it can't be a huge price difference. I'd do it more if I had more of an income myself.

Well, I still have not found any of the hardware for my desk, so I have no sewing workspace. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/veryangry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":grr:"> I'm sure that is just an excuse though, but I hate to use the dining table for sewing.<br><br>
ANYWAY, I am posting this to ask what everyone thinks of using plant materials to create tie dyed clothing? The idea is that I recycle clothing and tie dye, or just re dye, an article of clothing using only wild harvested or local cultivated plants. So what do you think?
