1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I want to make this shirt on: May 26, 2006 05:47:25 PM
I have been holding onto the photos for the longest time and really want to make a shirt that's identical or somewhat similar.

I'm not a great seamstress, I can put a zipper in and throw in some darts. I don't know if I could accomplish pintucking.

Any ideas? Please? I am assuming the fabric is linen or another lightweight woven cotton.



2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / cherry blossoms stained glass embroidery on: September 11, 2005 02:37:11 PM
This is my first large scale embroidery project. I have had it mounted and framed since this picture was taken and it's for a friend's wedding. I completed it in about 3 weeks.

This is the picture I worked from. I transferred the pattern from a print out of the image, with carbon paper taped to the back. I used a small blunt tool to trace it out onto my fabric.


this is the pattern transferred



and various stages of progress:






And completed!





3  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / My kid's shirt goes Vroom! on: July 14, 2005 08:55:44 AM
this is my first ever embroidery project, on a shirt for my 8.5 month old daughter.
I haven't ironed it or put interfacing on the back yet, it's hot off the hoops.
I'm addicted. Seriously, I can't wait to start embroidering everything.

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / what does your creative space look like? on: November 21, 2004 07:15:48 PM
hi, i'm new. well, not new, but i rarely post.

i am about to set up my creative space in my new house and wondered what other's spaces looked like. That would give me an idea how to organize my space. I have never had my own room dedicated to my crafting/sewing/etc. and I am super-excited about it.

I'll post a pic to add to the thread once i get it set up and working.
