Um...I'm new to fibermancy, so would you mind answering my question? Could I sew something for this contest? I'm not the best knitter (I only really make scarves) but I would like to sew a doll or plush for this contest. Would that be okay?

Under "The Contest" it says "The contest will be to crochet, knit, felt, sew, weave or other wise use any sort of fiber medium to make something Halloween related." So yeah you can sew something. ^^

Me too...tomorrow 'cause I've been concerned about my betta fish. :(
I need to get him a larger tank soon; he's just too energetic, the 2.5 gallon one is like a jar for him. >.<;

Hmmm, I have no idea. But a bigger tank might help? x.x

:iconaltearithe:
altearithe Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
Me neither. :( It could also be the temperature of the tank being too low and perhaps some stress from the recent cleaning.
I got him a larger one and he seems to enjoy it. :3 I just have to turn off the filter every now and then so that he can swim properly though. :(

moofestgirl Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Ah yeah, any chemicals you use to clean the tank can kill the fishies. Once my dad cleaned the tank after putting lotion on his arms and it killed all the fish in the tank x.x lol

Dunno WHY he thought THAT was a good idea lol

I'd like to enter, but I'm not sure of two things:
1: if I'm a member, and if not how to become one and what that means
2: How to submit something in the contest-folder?
