Let’s talk a little bit about commission stitching.
I’ve done a bit of commission stitching before. Quiet recently, in fact. I usually only take pieces that are small, quick, and easy so I can knock them out and not feel bored with them for too long. I also only do commissions for people I trust will pay me for my work. That’s a big thing. I’ve done commission knitting for people who didn’t pay, waiting a long time to pay, or didn’t pay the full amount. If you’re ever unsure about payment when you do commission stitching of any craft, get half up front!
This week’s commissioned piece is an Achievement Hunters logo.
My little sister asked me to stitch the logo for AH (a gaming group called Achievement Hunters) for her girlfriend. While it’s a quick and easy stitch, it’s on dark fabric which makes it hard to see the holes, which makes me work on it less than I could. I have until the end of July to finish this one, and a white version:
In the mean time, I’m still working on Nevermore.
With most of the black done, and all of the outlining done, I think it’s going to be much more enjoyable to work on from here. After I finish the raven, all that’s left will be coloring in. That means lots of colors!
Is there anything else you want to know about commission stitching? I can answer basic questions about commissions for most crafts, but I can give you a bit more detail about doing it for cross stitch, knitting, and crochet. While commission stitching can be difficult, as long as you have a good customer, it’s usually well worth it. Leave a comment below with any questions you have (or just to say hi) and I’ll respond as quickly as I can!
That’s it for now. Until next time, Happy Stitching!
