I've been crocheting baby stuff like crazy since I found out I'm having a girl (Gretchen Lily)! Here's the finished pieces... (FYI: the sweaters are all based off www.Yarny Days.com two great sweater patterns)
I needed a break from the more intense embroidery I was working on so I decided to decorate the $2 tote bag I got at walmart. I was watching "Once More With Feeling" from Buffy season six and I love Buffy and Spike together so here it is.
I was inspired by all the cool needlebooks I saw here and since I was losing so many needles tumbling around in my old Puma shoe box I decided to make one for myself. It was pretty fun but I like making things up as I go along and I had to plan a little more with this. Which is way the pocket is a bit lopsided and the blanket stitch bites but the cover turned out pretty good!
I finally finished this! It just started out as an idea with the hair being opposite words and I just kept adding elements from there. Her top is supposed to be flowers and vines and then blood and veins but that part didn't turn out too well. Overall I'm pretty happy with it. Any thoughts?
This was my first attempt at embroidery. I just kind of went with what stitches I felt like using and it was based off some of my sketches. This is what I'm working on now. The hair is made up of a whole bunch of opposite words and I'm still deciding what to put in the banner and the space around her head.
