Sometimes I need quick hint how to create standalone arduino MC, but when I click buttons in wrong order or connect wires in a wrong way, it brings me to frustration and extra time to figure out where is the problem.
So here is quick screenshots of step by step bootloader burn and sketch upload.

<p>I had the same problem.</p><p>That is why I build a programming shield. Have a look at https://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-UNO-as-AtMega328P-Programmer/</p>
<p>Nice soldering, what temperature did you use?<br>PCB looks good as well. What did you use for etching, Feric, Muriatic, Vinegar?<br>Thank you.</p>
<p>I have no idea of the tip temperature. I use a Weller soldering station, with a no.7 tip.</p><p>I use Press-a-Peel to create the PCB, and Ammonium Persulphate for the etching.</p>
