Q

I want to start my own Etsy shop and make my own plushies. No one I know can help because they don't know how. How should I get started? I'm only in high school so is this a good idea or should I wait?

I'd recommend reading articles on Etsy's seller handbook! They're a great place to learn about running an etsy shop. https://www.etsy.com/seller-handbook/

As far as being in high school goes, here are Etsy's rules regarding minors (if you're under 18). https://www.etsy.com/help/article/127

Are you asking how to get the template to print out for the Valentines? There's a link in the video description to the pattern. Here it is! http://www.laurenfairweather.com/wp-cont...

OK I have this Medium sized Brown Pit-bull / Lab mix that I want to make a costume for, I want to make her one of those young Pale Horses from the Harry Potter books. Any recommendations on how to make wings for her?

Actually, yes! My friend Jennifer made these bat wings for her dog in a tutorial on her youtube channel, and I bet you could just use a different color and adjust the shape: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dn9QEF9e...

Q

Out of curiosity. How long does it normally take you to make your items, DIY's and stuff like that? (Examples: Plushies, necklaces, ETC)


Lauren Fairweather responded on 01/29/2017
A

Totally depends on the project and how long I've been making it! Some crafts I can make in 15-20 minutes, some take hours. Plushies take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours each depending on how big or detailed they are. Over time, I get a little faster if it's a project I've made a bunch of times. I tend to work slower when it's my first or second time making something.

What's the difference between your solo music and your Moaning Myrtles music? I used to be a huge fan of the Moaning Myrtles but then I sort of lapsed, and recently I wanted to get back into it and so I googled your music, and it looks like most of it is by yourself?


Lauren Fairweather responded on 11/28/2016
A

Yes! The Moaning Myrtles is mostly piano-based music from the perspective of Moaning Myrtle, written by me and Nina Jankowicz. My solo music (Lauren Fairweather) is mostly acoustic guitar music written and performed by me about a wider variety of topics from lots of perspectives, including my own. Sometimes, I'll bring in friends of mine to perform using additional instruments, but it's usually just me.

You can hear all of my solo music at http://laurenfairweather.bandcamp.com see all of my upcoming show information at http://www.laurenfairweather.com/shows and I post lots of video content, including music videos, at http://youtube.com/laurenfairweather

Q

Where did you print your business cards? Did you use a template or design them yourself? Thanks!


Lauren Fairweather responded on 09/14/2016
A

I've printed business cards at uprinting.com and clubflyers.com before, but I am currently looking for a new place to print my next ones since those weren't super great. They're less expensive at least! I design my business cards.

Hi Lauren,
I'm so excited to make your pygmy puff for my daughter's 11 year old crafting birthday (her and her friends are each going to make one!) but can't find the template. Can you help? I'm new to You Tube so maybe I've missed it? Thanks.


Lauren Fairweather responded on 03/10/2016
A

The templates for all of my youtube tutorials can be found in the video description of each video (which is located below the video - on a desktop browser, click 'show more', and on mobile, click the arrow to the right of the title under the video)! Just click the link to go to the pdf and you can print it from there. For the pygmy puff, the pattern is here: http://www.laurenfairweather.com/wp-cont...

Hey Lauren! Before I ask my question I'd just like to say that I love your videos. You have such a sweet, kind spirit, and I wish I could be as kind as you are. It's really hard to be nice to people at times, but I feel like you do such a great job of being sweet to everyone, which is inspiring. You are also very talented, I listen to The Moaning Myrtles all the time, and I wish I could sow like you. Okay, actual question now: Have you every watched the show Friends, and if so, did you enjoy it?

I loved it when I was in high school (I own all 10 seasons on DVD) but recently, I started rewatching it when it was added to Netflix and I have to say, I couldn't even get through season 1. I still quote it regularly and I look back on most of it with fond memories, but the way LGBT characters are treated on the show was just too much for me this time around. I couldn't enjoy it the way I used to, back when I assumed that the closest representation of myself I'd ever see on television would be on the receiving end of constant tasteless jokes.
