1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Neato Cross-stitch caterpillar felt needle book! on: May 28, 2009 06:08:20 PM
I am forever losing my needles and I have a terrible fear that one day I will step on one! Ouchy!  So...I decided I would make a little felt wallet-type book to hold all my embroidery and cross stitch needles.  I used the caterpillar cross stitch pattern from, Miss Woolly's mini cross-stitch kit (by Eliza Edwards), for the image on the front.

It has a button closure and little berry applique made of felt. 



I sewed a little piece of aida cloth to the inside cover to keep the cross stitch needles in:



I also added a small green pocket on the back cover to keep a needle package in....maybe I will put a seam ripper in there too!



I used the cheapo kind of felt that is like 5 pieces for a dollar.  I want to buy some of that yummy wool felt when I get more money....someday!  Undecided

Thanks for looking peeps!


2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Redwork Pillowcase! on: August 18, 2008 11:59:23 PM
I wanted to try my hand at redwork, as a practice project, because my mom and I have a plan to collaborate on a redwork quilt.  Here's what I came up with.  I used an Aunt Martha transfer and ironed it onto a white pillowcase my mom had lying around.

Here's some pic's... Smiley






sorry about my icky sheets...they need to be washed! Tongue

I kind of like just using one color...which suprises me because I usually love to "overdue" things.  I still kind of feel like it needs something, I'm just not sure what.

Any advice on how to take better pictures of embroidery?  Some of you have such nice & clear photos!
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / A Poop Storage Can...eeek, not actually for storing poop! on: August 08, 2008 12:54:06 AM
I hope I don't offend anyone with my immaturity, but I think poop is funny!  Shocked

So...I decided to cover a coffee can with paper, embroidered felt, and ric-rac.  I am new to embroidery(yay! for the blanket stitch) and Craftster and so far I love both! 

I made this for my husband to take to work and put on his desk.  We'll see how it goes over with his co-workers...hehe.





action shot!

Thanks for lookn! Tongue
