321  lucky maneki neko x-stitch bookmark in Needlework: Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: June 10, 2009 07:39:51 AM
so I just got back into cross stitch a few weeks ago and I've been making all kinds of stuff.  I'm still working on a potholder for myself, but it's not finished yet.  it will be posted as soon as I'm done with it, of course.  but for now, I give you this:

I found the Maneki Neko sprite on some website (stupid me, I didn't save it) found it, used this website to make her name pattern (I found it using Wikipedia.  can you believe it??), then used my Japanese/English dictionary to make the "un" pattern.  that's Japanese for "luck" (that is what my dictionary states and it is a reputable one.  the website I checked it against says otherwise.  it's wrong, I'm right).  he's one stitch longer than the sprite that I used, but you'd never know it unless you studied both pictures.  I wasn't paying attention to where I put a stitch until I was on the opposite side of the pattern.  so I just went with it.  but like I said, you'd never know it.  I'm just anal like that.  Tongue

what do you think?

I am so super glad you love everything so much!  Grin  but there was one tiny, insignificant thing you might have missed about the Kira bag:

I call it the "oops".  when turning the fabric inside out, the plaid ripped!  it made me sick!  I was ready to cry.  but then I came up with a way to fix/hide it.  Wink

and I'm glad your girls like their new jewelry.  Cheesy  it looks so pretty on them.

and everyone take note that that is my very FIRST bottle cap pin cushion.  I just love how it turned out.  I'm so proud of it.  Grin

and you had better post that teaser soon.  I'm dying to see something!  I'm really dying to get the package!  but I guess I can settle for a teaser.  Wink

I want so badly to post Saor's earrings.  but I don't know if I should because what if suddenly they appear in her mail and then the surprise is ruined!  I don't know what to do!

it's mine!!!  all mine!!!   Grin Grin Grin

and I didn't realize there was a heart and key.  Tongue  I felt the apple under there, but didn't notice the other 2.  they were caught under his sleeve.  but I snapped pictures.

the one is a little blurry.  Undecided

thanks again!

yay!  me first!  me first!!

I was beyond spoiled.  this was one of the most amazing packages I've ever received...ever!

first we have some shirts from my wists!  I knew that thing would come in handy some day.  I'm glad I started it.  Tongue

then, we have a jewelry box based off my favorite scene from the saga; Bella and Edward's little (fairy) cottage.  at least, that's what it made me think of when I read that part in Breaking Dawn.

inside, I found all kinds of little goodies:


a key pin, wrist pincushion, Twilight patch, and some buttons

then we have these awesome fingerless gloves, again from my wist (ignore the date.  something's wrong with my camera AND the batteries):

and last, but certainly not least, the best freaking thing in the box (that I almost didn't get because GatorWrangler wanted to keep it for herself  Wink):

an Edward doll!!!!!!!!!!!  can you believe it?  my very own Edward!!!!!!!!!!!!!  here's a close-up so you can see his face a little better (sorry it's a little blurry):

this swap was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

I just found out that Edward is wearing more than just an apple around his wrist.  Tongue  his bracelet has an apple, heart and key on it.  so I snapped pictures of them as well.  sorry the one is blurry.  I couldn't get it any clearer!!!  I hate my camera...

I love the Cookie Monster recipe book.  what a great idea!

I did send shdwstrm's box today, and since she is only a few short hours north of me, it (hopefully) shouldn't take too long for her to get it.

but until then here's a little teaser for everyone...

329  scrap fairy doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: May 08, 2009 01:04:58 PM
I made this forever ago.  I used pieces of scrap fabric I had laying around.  her body is made from a pinkish shirt that no longer fit me, the wings are made from some Barbie clothing I still had for some reason, and her panties and long vest are made from this beautiful Victorian-looking blouse I ruined.  I miss that top.  anyways, her hair is just pieces of blue yarn pulled apart to give a crimped look that I love.  I even made her a little black necklace.  and yes, her non-existent bellybotton is pierced.

well, I received from 2 of my partners, but I'm sad.  Cry

as you can see, the one on the left broke in the mail on its way from little dragonfly.   Cry  I'm pretty sure I can fix it.  it's kinda funny how I made a pair of earrings with coral and received a pair made with coral.  thank you!

and here we have 2 pretty pairs from Kerallyn.  loverly!  thank you!
