31  Sailor Moon Ugly Christmas Sweater Cross Stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: December 08, 2015 08:49:57 AM
so, I found a Sailor Moon Ugly Sweater as a sweatshirt somewhere online (it was created by machmigo. I received a nice little comment about this piece and confirmation of the creator on the third page).  I decided to turn it into a cross stitch pattern.   Grin  took me about 3 hours to make the thing too.

this one hardly took any time at all.  roughly 12 days is all it took.

size: about 81/2in x 11in
cloth: 14 count navy blue Aida
colors: 11

each of the Sailor Scouts is represented by their aura color; Mercury = blue, Mars = red, Jupiter = green, Venus = yellow orange, Moon = pink, Uranus = dark blue, Neptune = sea foam green, Saturn = light purple, Pluto = dark purple.  the shirt had their planet symbols, but there was no way for me to shrink them down, so I just went by color.
if you see shiny/dark areas around the bottom, that's just Fray Check that hasn't totally dried on the back.  you can't really see it from the front once it's completely dry.

hope you like!

guess who!!!

hello everyone!  it's me again.  trying to get caught up on all of these fantastic projects is a bit overwhelming, but I'm working on it.   Wink  I just wanted to stop by and make an announcement; remember the project I started working on who-knows-when?  well,

IT IS DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

check out my post for a little more info on it.   Smiley

33  Marilyn Manson cross stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: November 24, 2015 11:31:52 PM
hello everyone!  it's been a long, long time.  hope you're all doing well!  and for those of you who don't know me, check out my profile and stuff if you want to get to know me.   Grin

anyway, why we're here; about 2 years ago - perhaps 3*.  I'd have to go through my posts to figure out the correct amount of time - I started working on a rather large cross stitch project of Marilyn Manson.  yes, I am this obsessed with him.  anyway, the pattern came out larger than I had hoped, so stitching it on 14 count Aida cloth would have been too much for me...at least without the use of a stitching frame (I really need to get one of those things).  plus, framing it would have been crazy.  so, I decided the best thing to do would be to stitch this on 28 count Evenweave.  I now have a deep hatred for 28 count Evenweave, but I know I'll get over it eventually.  I always do.  so, without further ado, I present the most insane cross stitch project I have EVER done in my life...

size: 10in x 10in
colors: 7
stitches: 89,102

next pattern!   Grin  Grin  Grin

*ok so; I went through my posts.  I WAS TOTALLY OFF!  it was only 17 months ago (around June 8, 2014) when I started this project.  so only shy of a year and a half!  wow!  and technically it was even less than that because I did set it aside for quite a while after I moved and for some time before I moved because of all that's involved in moving.  but that's it!  it was LESS than 2 years!   Shocked

update: I was going to have this professionally framed, but I got paranoid and was afraid to leave it in the store.  lol.  I was afraid they would snag it on something or worse yet, lose it.  so I framed it myself in a regular off-the-shelf frame and used pieces of black cardstock to "mat" it.

anybody remember me?  lol.  I've been gone for a long time, but I wanted to come back and see what's up on Craftster.   Grin  I hit a bad patch of depression and had little to no interest in crafting, so I kinda disappeared.  but, I did start on one item and have been working on it off and on (mostly on for the last 7 months) and it's the only thing I've been interested in doing.  not sure why either.  most of the time I sit and wonder, "why am I doing this?" as I work away.  you'll see why.

I had originally posted a list that included this item back in 2014...I don't think I updated it to 2015 (nope).  it was number one on my list as I wanted to do it SO badly.  it's approximately 10in X 10in on 28 count...ummm...cloth (I forget what it's called and I really don't feel like getting up to find the name).  when finished, it will consist of 7 colors and (approximately as I found a BIG goof while doing the second color and a few random little goofs while doing the third) 89102 stitches.  hmmm...come to think of it, is that single stitches or completed Xs???

anyway, here's the WIP.  I have a LONG way to go.

it's Marilyn Manson, by the way.  this is how much I love this man; I'm willing to drive myself insane to make this cross stitch of him.

I had started this back in February for the Nerd Battles, but alas, it took me 2 months to finish it.  it's still in the Nerd Battles, just not under the original category.

one of my favorite animes is Fooly Cooly (or FLCL).  the character I cross stitched is Canti, a really cool and funny robot.  you can learn more about him and the show here.

he's about 6inx10in, so a definite candidate for professional framing.  and he was stitched on 28 count cloth.

all credit for the design goes to kurichii.

40  Turquoise bracelet in Beads: Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: October 30, 2013 02:40:03 AM
I had made this a little while back after my aunt gave me the center piece (silver thing with a turquoise stone in the middle).  I had seen bracelets like this in stores, and I knew I could make something similar myself.  so I did.  and I wasn't real crazy about it.  I had a piece of rubber tube looped through the center piece with beads between them like you see in those wrap bracelets, but it wouldn't lay down flat.  but then, when I bought the silver beads I used to make my End of the Trail necklace, I knew they needed to be added to this bracelet.  so I fixed it and now I love it.
