I got this pattern from the sprite stitch forum board (forget exactly who made it, but it rocks!), and I had a blast making it. I looove doing simple fun colours, plus this is pretty much my favourite video game that I don't own, lol.
Here's a close up of the stitches
And to suit the crazy happiness of the game, I did a quick modification of a cheapo Value Village frame...
A friend of a friend asked me to make him a raccoon mario cross-stitch, and I always like a challenge/excuse to craft, so I did it!
I just took a sprite from The Shyguy Kingdom, and made a pattern of it. :3 I'm not sure if I really like the program's choice of cherry red for skin shading, but I'm not that familiar with the ways of gaming sprites/shading techniques for them, so I went with it anyways. Other than that, I really like how it turned out. Heck, if he forgets or doesn't like it, I'll just frame it and put it up on the wall
Also does anybody know a good way to iron out wrinkles from aida fabric? I never know what setting to use and I'm afraid that I'll end up burning it. @__@
I'm a huge fan of Trailer Park Boys (Canadian mockumentary about trailer park life which involves a butt-ton of swearing, liquor, dope, and gun fights...that somehow makes it funny? bwaha), so I decided to embroider something about it! Plus this past month or so has been my huge embrodiery kick, haha.
So it's the famous features of the three main dudes - Ricky, Bubbles, and Julian - with a quote from Ricky, who often fails at popular sayings/pronounciating things.
I'm not too thrilled about how the lettering turned out, but I do really like it overall! Yay, not to find a frame and put it somewhere. Thanks for looking!
So I saw this loldog (http://ihasahotdog.com/2009/06/26/cute-puppy-pictures-true-love/) that was super-cute so I made it to hang it up in the house somewhere. My boyfriend and I love pugs but can't afford a pet right now so embroidered cuteness will have to do for a while, haha. I might add a few more stitches, but it's pretty well finished Yay!
Hey there! I decided to try out how to do french knots because I realized... that I've never actually tried them before in my stitching! :O So I used them for this. I feel like I have much to learn, haha. Anyways, these are supposed to be fireworks! I'm getting all excited for Canada Day because all I've ever had for memories of that holidays is good times, even though I have yet to make plans for this year. Fireworks always cap off the awesome day of free food and parades!
Yup! I went to her show in Vancouver last week, and it was aaamazing! The week before, I was getting all hyped for it and decided to embroider a picture of her to hang up somewhere. I tried to be super-detailed orientated with it, but the hair killed me so I stopped trying to fill it all in haha.
I like how it turned out, but I really really wish I had an iron to destroy the wrinkles with. @__@
Yup, I made this from one of those "project runway inspired" patterns. I'm not really sure how it's inspired by the show cuz from what I remember, they do all sorts of crazy things and this in comparison is pretty plain lol. But it was neat because everything from the pieces was pretty much mix-and-match. I'll be re-using this pattern a lot in the future. XD I want to make another one in more lightweight, less fancy fabric for general summer wear. As it is, it's kind of more an evening dress since the purple is pretty heavy and the top is satiny.
I also made it for just the cost of the pattern! Last summer a friend was all "My mom is making me get rid of all my fabric stash, do you want it?" and I couldn't say no. So all the fabric was gifted and scraps from her other projects, woo! I was itching to use the satiny butterfly fabric and it just seemed perfect for the bodice
The front! It didn't really get the hem in the picture, but it's just above the knees.
Yup, it's pokemon time! Aaaah with so much homework to do for next month, I needed something quick and fun to make so I decided to do a bunch of pokemon patterns from this sitehttp://littlemojo.110mb.com/index.htm. Plus it's a nice break from the massive cross stitch that I've been working on since September. @___@
