21  Hunger Games necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Krafty_Karasu on: October 20, 2013 01:57:40 AM
I like to wear jewelry inspired by the movie I'm going to watch (but usually only if it's something like Twilight or The Hunger Games).  I bought a pair of mackingjay earrings, but I couldn't find an AFFORDABLE necklace, so I wanted to make one.  and I did.  Grin



I put a little black acrylic paint in the "12" to make it stand out more.  I love this more than most of the handmade THG necklaces I've seen.

22  Peace Sign jewlery set in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Krafty_Karasu on: October 20, 2013 01:50:32 AM
so...my cousin's little girl is into peace signs and I've been wanting to make her a pair of turquoise (because I live in the southwest) peace sign earrings.  Id been holding off because I wasn't sure how big the signs were that I saw because she's only...6?  no.  she's 7.  anyway, I went back to Michael's and saw that they weren't very big at all, I grabbed them and made earrings and a necklace.



it is [imitation] turquoise.  I swear.  stupid flash washed it out a bit.

Challenge: May Multimedia - blue
Team/Ninja: Control Freaks
Project Geekdom: video games
Bonus Points: SNB
Project Name: Sub-Zero cross stitch
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=425873.0#axzz2a1D8wgbN
Brief Description: since Sub-Zero's costume is mainly blue (representing his ability to control ice) and the majority of the background is also blue' this just obviously fits the challenge.  Grin  he's also another of my favorite Mortal Kombat characters, so I had to do him like I did Scorpion (see link within the Sub-Zero link).  I did this one on 14 count Aida making this picture 5x7.
Project Picture:


mistakes were made of course, but I figure I'm the only one who knows where they are, so big deal.  I'm just having too much fun making these cross stitch pictures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

25  Sub-Zero cross stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: July 24, 2013 07:15:53 PM
so you may (or may not) remember the Scorpion cross stitch I posted last month.  here's a refresher link.  well, since I'm crazy, I decided it would be a good idea to make another one, only this time it's Sub-Zero from Mortal Kombat.



of course I made mistakes, but I figure I'm the only one that knows where those mistakes are, so who cares.  Tongue  this one's a 5x7 on black (making the black floss nearly impossible to do) 14 count Aida.

I am crazy for making something this detailed.  14 colors.  that is the most I have EVER worked with!!!!!!  this was made using 28 count Hardanger cloth from a video game sprite.  it took me FOREVER to make!  it should technically count as as UBER-large!!!  lol.  oh, and it's about 3in x 4in.

28  Scorpion cross stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: June 27, 2013 12:00:30 AM
I have NEVER made a cross stitch project this detailed.  14 colors.  would have been more if my converting program hadn't lost at least one color.

I made this from a Mortal Kombat Sega Genesis sprite (I found it again last night after I posted this).  I made so many mistakes, but none that anybody would really notice...except me.  Tongue



I just found the frame today.  lol.  I was so, so happy to have found one this small!  it's only 3in x 4in!! Grin  I used 28 count Hardanger cloth (you're supposedly supposed to use it as 14 count, but I like a challenge).  had I used it as 14 or even used 11 count like I wanted to, it would have been HUGE!!!!!!!

29  Noob Saibot wins! (cross stitched picture) in Needlework: Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: May 28, 2013 11:48:41 PM
MS Paint XP is a wonderful thing.  I LOATHE any version of MS Paint that came out after MS Paint Vista (it's basically the same as XP).  the XP version allows you to create your very own patterns using a graph that changes in size as you zoom in, whereas the 7 version has a graph that stays the same size as you zoom in.  that doesn't work for pattern making.  all of the cross stitched items you have seen on here from me (as well as some square stitched beaded items) came from patterns I made myself using MS Paint XP.

ANYWAY!  I made this picture for the Summer Nerd Games as my entry into the Pirates vs. Ninja Battle Royale.  obviously I went with the ninja theme.  Wink  Noob Saibot was originally a hidden, unplayable character in Mortal Kombat II, and was made as a cross between 2 other ninjas, Sub-Zero and Scorpion.  at the time, he was only a shadowy silhouette (he is a wraith ya know), but has now evolved into an actual humanoid being.  you can see him in action by clicking here.

Challenge/Battle/Alert: May Battle Royale - Pirates vs. Ninjas (ninja)
Team/Ninja: Team Control Freaks
Project Geekdom (if any): video games
Bonus Points: Nerdy & Super Nerdy
Project Name: Noob Saibot cross stitched picture
Brief Description: I chose to make a cross stitched picture of one of my favorite Mortal Kombat ninjas, Noob Saibot, who happens to have originally been a cross between 2 other Mortal Kombat ninjas (Sub-Zero & Scorpion, also favorites of mine) when he first appeared in the video game Mortal Kombat II.  you can see him in action by clicking here.  wanting to make this forced me to download and install MS Paint XP since the Windows 7 (and above) version sucks.  it doesn't allow you to make patterns like this.  besides, I've been wanting to make cross stitch and square stitch bead patterns again for a while now.  so I'm going to be very busy playing around with MS Paint XP.  Grin  Grin  Grin
