If it means taking a chubby, I will suck it up
The Invincibility Star comes from this pattern, but I completely ignored the "chain 1, join" business.
I'm trying to decide if I should make this a one of a kind piece for my one of a kind friend Amo, or if there's a market for it on Etsy. As a scheming, conniving capitalist, I'm sure Amo wouldn't care.
If the pattern book hadn't fallen apart/lost critical pages, I would probably have made this Sleeping Beauty one for Kristen. I was hoping the camera phone would be enough to figure out a pattern. I might be able to manage Briar Rose, but it's probably less trouble to look the book up on eBay. Oh, look, here's one. Although the listed shipping seems pretty steep for what I remember being a pretty flimsy book.
I think selling them as a set is probably a poor choice--the frames are pretty flimsy, and half of them are Mickey Mouse/Minnie Mouse, and the other three were Sleeping Beauty, Lady and the Tramp, and Dumbo. I would've been seriously tempted to get the Sleeping Beauty one--even if I just used it to make an 18ct copy--but $20 for six pieces of somebody else's work for a skill I already have? Especially after watching that hoarders show on TLC the night before?
There was also this animal alphabet sampler. It bothers me that there's no A, and N is for Night Owl and X is for foX are pretty lazy, but it has potential.
