Sewing Tutorial: How to Hand Slip Stitch
I’ve posted a new sewing tutorial showing you how to hand slipstitch an opening closed with no trace of stitches showing. A fundamental hand sewing stitch, this one is handy to know, even if you aren’t a sewer. Any time you get a rip in your shirt or pants, a seam comes loose on your couch, or there’s an opening in any type of fabric, use this neat stitch to invisibly sew the gap up.

my mom asked why i don’t read as many books as i used to and i just said it was because i read a lot of unpublished stories from independent writers online and she thinks that’s very good of me to give undiscovered authors a chance

DIY New Circle Skirt App from By Hand London here. The actual app is here. What I really like about this app is after you plug all your data in the app tells you the fabric length required:
So I saw this today on Pinterest and then found the Etsy link and I have to make a small PSA.
Please do not ever ever ever keep your betta (or any fish for that matter) in a permanent tank this small. EVER.
The seller claims that betta don’t need aeration, filtration, or a lot of water to live a long and healthy life of two years, so a wine bottle is the perfect fashionable tank for them. This is a lie.
Small tanks mean low water temp, which makes betta, a tropical fish, sick. Any good betta tank will have a heater that can be regulated to 80 degrees.
The smallest tank any betta should live in is one gallon, which is nearly three times as much as a wine bottle (or those stupid “betta vases”) will hold. Betta will thrive much better in a three gallon or larger tank.
There is nowhere in this jar for the betta to hide when he’s scared or nap when he’s tired. They do enjoy playing with their humans, but they need some aquarium decor to interact with when you’re not around.
The seller suggests cleaning the tank once a week and that filtration isn’t needed, but bettas eat and poop just like any other fish and create waste that is harmful to them. The small amount of water in this jar should be changed daily, not weekly, to avoid ammonia buildup and remove uneaten food crud. Of course, a daily water change could be avoided with a good sized tank and a nice, slow-current filter.
This person has already sold a number of these upcycled tanks to people who don’t know any better about betta care, and it makes me so sad that their beautiful fish are living unhappy lives.
Reblogging for learning something new and incredibly needed today.

Recently a friend cam to me, troll-speckled fabric in hand, asking me for a lesson on making circle skirts.
While I will get to posting that eventually, for now I used our lesson to get photos for (in my opinion) the easiest way to install a zipper.

Daily reminders about Erwin Smith (just things I see that go forgotten):
- He is not at all egotistic, regardless of the power his position holds.
- He devised a formation on his own with the intention of saving lives.
- He is wiling to sacrifice himself if need be and he accepts he is as replaceable as his men.
- He used his gear with one hand.
- Lasted an entire day with a fatal injury, only passing out once his men reached the wall safely.
