1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Munsters hoopla and a dragon pillowcase on: Today at 01:41:07 PM
I participated in the last round of the monster swap. I stitched these for my wonderful partner aisy.



I found a coloring book page on pinterest and free handed it for the hoop. I honestly haven't seen the show in years so i can't say how recognizable they are. I wanted to keep it to the black/ white of the show, which i actually had a really hard time with. I love color!

Next up is a dragon pillow, this was tough. I am not a fan of varigated thread. I couldn't get the colors to line up where i wanted them.  Undecided
I ended up going through three skeins just to get the right color combos in the right order.


Overall though im really happy with how they ended up. I hope my partner liked them.

Cc welcome!! Im trying to improve since I'm still new to embroidery!

I'm watching for this one for sure. Smiley
I really hope you join!

Wow. I just looked some up and they are beautiful. I've always loved the look of crocheted mandala's, I don't know why it never occurred to me to embroider them!
They are beautiful! You should join once it's open! It should be lots of fun.


I am still waiting on feedback but was thinking for requirements:
 5-6 inch mandala (hooped or on another item, to be discussed with partner)
About a month crafting time, would that work for everyone?
Anything to add/delete?
3  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Felt Badge Swap (SU May 17 - May 28, SO June 27) on: June 27, 2016 09:41:12 PM
I came up with a sorta nifty way to show mine off. I wanted to display them on my soon-to-be-once-the-wall-gets-painted hoopla wall. But since there is talk of an ongoing i didnt want to glue/stitch them to a hoopla in case of multiples of one theme. I glued a magnet on the back of the badge then put it on the hoop fabric and put a magnet on the back. Totally temporary yet stuck. It seems to be holding well. Figured I'd share incase anyone is clueless on display options.

Though i have to say that purse is amazing.... i just never stay in one purse long enough  Roll Eyes

Oh my a 3-d mandala would be awesome! I never thought of that, I may have to investigate stumpwork myself.

Aw thank you kittykill! That means a lot. Smiley

I should be getting my feedback this week/next week sometime so, I can get it up for sign ups whenever after that.
Anyone have ideas for size, dates, requirements etc ?

All of mine would be from stash too.

If we could bypass the tracking requirement somehow i know itd be easier for me to do more (I dont drive and rides to the post are annoying to find. Esp for one tiny little envelope Roll Eyes).

It looks as though in the ongoing tm patch swap they did do tracking numbers. So that would probably have to be a requirement.

Im so glad you enjoyed your badge pioneer! I had a blast making it, wasnt sure if it was side-showy enough. Plus i kinda went nuts with the beading  Roll Eyes

I recieved today from pioneer9. Just look at this sweet little black cat face. I absolutely love it! Im completely blown away by the teenie tiny stitches and the adorable little button (I've never seen one so small).
 
Thank you so much!  Grin
