1  Embroidered Christmas cards in Needlework: Completed Projects by ohmystars on: December 13, 2009 03:50:51 AM
This is my second try paper embroidering - I made Christmas cards with simple retro-y motifs.





I wrote up a small photo-tutorial on my blog if you'd like to see, and feel free to use the patterns: (click image to enlarge)

2  Festive sweater! With fair isle chart! in Knitting: Completed Projects by ohmystars on: December 07, 2009 01:30:46 PM
I finished this sweater just in time for my knitting group's Christmas dinner!



It's made from lovely Sirdar Balmoral wool/alpaca/silk mix, constructed in the time-honoured Zimmermann top-down raglan percentage system, with the addition of a scoop neck. The body shape is snug at the top and flared out at the bottom, and long like a tunic. The bottom hem has a purl-turned row and the neckline is simply edged in reverse stocking stitch which curls neatly in on itself. The super-long arms have a smaller snowflake motif taken from the main chest pattern and are edged in 1x1 rib.





Here's the chart for the chest if you'd like to give it a go - it's worked over a multiple of 48 stitches (I did it over 146).



Few more photos & info on my Ravelry and knitblog. Hope you like it!

4  Paper embroidery in a moleskine in Needlework: Completed Projects by ohmystars on: August 14, 2009 08:23:37 AM
I made this piece for something called the Travelling Moleskine project - I got sent a blank Moleskine with a theme (mine was 'Crafty'!) which you fill in a page of and then send on to someone else.

My idea was based on a quotation I found online and typography by my hero, Herb Lubalin.





I designed it on the computer, printed then pressed through with a pencil to transfer the outline into the book. I punched the holes with a needle first then backstitched the design.



hope you like it! More info & pics on my blog and Flickr

6  rescued from the street - cabinet in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ohmystars on: April 28, 2008 04:34:33 AM
i found a battered old chest of drawers on the street outside my flat, so we adopted it and gave it a makeover. i sanded to remove the old varnish, painted it white and stuck Paperchase paper on the drawers, sides and top. i'm really happy with it! there is more detail on the project in my own blog http://www.whatkatiedoes.net and more photos on my flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/ohmystars

i'm not sure about the stripes, it takes away from the stitch pattern. what do you think?

9  shrink plastic charm necklaces in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by ohmystars on: September 29, 2006 05:50:21 AM
i made these charms out of shrink plastic (it trades as shrinkle in the UK and shrink-dink in the US, try your local craft store!), i think they're pretty effective, especially the silver ones which i sprayed with enamel paint.



hope you like  Grin
