1  Red Badge of Courage Inspired Helloflo.com's Camp Gyno (video) in Needlework: Completed Projects by Marie-Lynn on: August 05, 2013 11:23:47 AM
I loved Helloflo's Camp Gyno commercial. I improvised this Red Badge of Courage out of a remnant of felt.

I even made a video and a Vine which also contains other custom embroidered badges I am making for my Camp Bag.
So for the context see: http://marie-lynn.org/2013/08/02/the-red-badge-of-courage/#scroll

2  Moonrise Kingdom Kakhi Scout Badge Custom Order in Needlework: Completed Projects by Marie-Lynn on: August 05, 2013 11:17:43 AM
I have been busy Smiley

This is a custom order based on a previous design I did last year. All my scout badges (see next post as well) are created for a Camp Bag that I will eventually make. This week I am making my yellow scarf holder (bolo?). I have decided to mold it out of clay and make it in the shape of Grumpy Cat (my spirit animal!). I hope I succeed!!!

3  3D Embroidered Dragonfly made of Wedding Lace in Completed Projects by Marie-Lynn on: August 05, 2013 11:14:09 AM
I was inspired by the beautiful insects embroidered on the dresses of Sensa Stark and the inhabitants of Quath in Game of Thrones. This dragonfly is made entirely of remnants of lace and felt. It is 4 inches long and entirely poseable. The repurposed wedding lace is very compatible with making poseable wings!

4  More Moonrise Kingdom KSNA! Small round lasso merit badge in Needlework: Completed Projects by Marie-Lynn on: July 14, 2012 10:18:06 AM
Hi again!

Today I have finished the round lasso badge. It took about 4-5 hours of work and was somewhat less aggravating than planned. It is cute and I talked about the process on my blog here marie-lynn.org/2012/07/14/there-is-always-time-to-make/#scroll.

Remember that this is meant first and foremost for a vintage book bag which I will attempt to make using 100 year old homespun linen from Eastern Europe (purchased from CoolVintage on Etsy). The next step is the black background post name... I am not a writer and all my attempts so far have looked awful... BUT I am hoping I am closer to the end of the talent gap as I make this one.

5  Khaki Scouts of North America Badge in Needlework: Completed Projects by Marie-Lynn on: July 13, 2012 10:43:19 AM
Very inspired by Moonrise Kingdom and I created this lovely 3 inch badge on 22-count brown aida cloth. This worked out great because embroidering a colored background is very long. The raccoon is made of felt and the rest is vintage DMC thread in various colors including 'Blanc Neige', their really bright white thread. More photos including the back on Flickr.

7  Apliqued Hawaiian Shirt Motif on Old Navy Dress in Needlework: Completed Projects by Marie-Lynn on: July 21, 2009 05:42:18 PM
A few years ago Old Navy had a lot of simple line basic garments made in India with absolutely nothing on them. I went a little crazy and bought 7 aline dresses and three frilly square neck tops. I am doing something funky with each and every one of them.

The is a dress with apliqued motifs taken from a very nice hawaiian shirt I purchased at the thrift store. For some reason, the hawaiian shirts there are always high quality, unworn and inexpensive. So I have bought many and have 7 projects on the way with the bits and pieces.

The pieces are sewn on with tiny backstitching. To do this easy you should not cut up your fabric. Put the dress and fabric in an embroidery hoop and it will hold everything steady for easy (albeit long...) sewing. Once it is finished, cut along the stitching VERY carefully Smiley









I am doing a second shirt and will try to produce some kind of tutorial with the tricks I've picked up along the way. The buttons are simply recovered pinbacks from a band that changed its name. To make them I used the classic sew around a circle and scrunch it up.

8  Mini Floss Bobbins - Adventures in frutrations with shapes in Needlework: Completed Projects by Marie-Lynn on: July 19, 2009 09:56:29 AM
I am creating new small embroidery treasure boxes (http://www.flickr.com/photos/marielynn/3612126226/) and I have been looking for shapes that can naturally become floss bobbins. Okay maybe the Henna Hands and Feet is a bit much but it works nonetheless. Each one contains 18 inches of 6 strand cotton thread.

9  Re: Corset Sachets & Pattern plus luggage tag in Needlework: Completed Projects by Marie-Lynn on: June 09, 2009 08:33:35 AM
Here is my version of your craft. It is not a sachet, just an ornament. I am making a few more though I am more on an organizing streak than a creating streak these days!



Thanks for posting the pattern along with your pictures Wink

10  Simple Art Nouveau Rose Pattern in Needlework: Completed Projects by Marie-Lynn on: June 04, 2009 08:04:57 AM
I have been looking at Art Nouveau designs lately. They have inspired many fun crafts like the Fancy Embroidery Winders / Floss Cards that I have posted the PDF templates posted in my Blog. This rose is simple and fun to do and I used reds from my waste pile hence why it is not all the same color. Unfortunately I mistakenly did it on the WRONG side of the towel. But I love it nonetheless and it makes a great towel to wrap my fresh bread.
