Surprisingly the basics are not too hard to master. I found a bunch of random places on the internet for basic tutorials and went from there. I pinned a lot of little tips here if you want to try for yourself...

I might try doing a tutorial on here too for anyone who doesn't want to jump to 5 different sites for bits of info  Cheesy

sheepBlue, are you using a good quality wool felt, or craft felt?  Wool felt holds up much better.

I have a mixture of both in my stash. I just grabbed what colors I wanted to use. If I did it again I'd make sure it was the better quality stuff. Though truly in retrospect, the fish was probably an inch or less, so I should have omitted the felt completely and just stitched the darned thing!  Smiley Lesson learned.

Word of warning to everyone...trying to stitch something tiny in detail with felt is really hard...My little fish disintegrated with each stitch  Undecided Oh well.

I love this bracelet!! It's so colorful and fun  Grin Now I will admit that I am not a huge sushi lover....the texture turns me off though the flavor isn't bad..but I can still enjoy the artful presentation of it! Great job  Wink

I'm so happy you like it!! She was such a beauty and was hard to send away. I also love the quarter for reference picture lol. I like to do close ups to show detail but it does not convey how tiny they are  Smiley Here's a picture I took to show the color better.

I can't express strongly enough how much I admire your creativity and devotion to this craft!  So inspiring!   Smiley

Thank you  Smiley You continue to be a source of inspiration as well.

Now if I could just mind meld with you and absorb your super skill for color blending and realistic stitching I'd be all set! (The bird was totally inspired by your stitches - the most color changes I've used in 2 inches or less)  Wink

amaranth - Love the theater square! I've only ever been to 4 musicals, but it is a truly unique experience that is awesome! If you can do it some day, I'd highly encourage it. I saw Rent, Wicked, Jesus Christ Superstar and Hairspray and would lovelovelove to see more.

Thanks lilletia! Yes it is stumpwork. In fact here's one more! My swap partner received yesterday so it's safe to post now  Smiley



This one was left unmounted (I popped it in a hoop for the sake of taking a picture so the fabric would be taut and show the butterfly correctly. Of course, as everyone may have surmised, it is a classic Monarch butterfly.  Smiley

jemimah - beautiful knits! I wish I knew how to knit at all...all I can seem to do is knit an ever increasing triangle...crochet makes more sense to me. Thank you for also reminding me that I seriously need to sit down and make some more swap cards since my stash is very low.

I've been around, but have been rather busy with the Embroidery Inchie-along and rather than spamming you guys with my tiny stitches I put them all over there. But I have done quite a bit over the last month so I made a post about it and thought I'd share here too.

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434409.msg5216311#msg5216311

So far I count 18 twinchies, one-a-half inchies, and one actual inchie done....I'm a little obsessed haha.
Of course still practicing my stumpwork. I love it.

I have been practicing my embroidery a lot (seriously a lot). I've jumped on the twinchie bandwagon with gusto and have made quite a few tiny little gems so far, all 1.5" to 2" (there is one so far that is only 1" but those are hard!). I'd love to hear your thoughts on all my little stitches  Smiley

This one was left unmounted so my swap partner could frame it as she wished.

Eastern bluebird


This is the true inchie - 1 inch big! - made up of a ton of picot stitches..


Great Mormon Butterfly
















I'm thinking to mix and match and pick ones of a similar theme to display in a shadowbox frame, probably 3 x 3 set up or 4 x 4. But first I'm going to keep stitching because it is the best form of therapy that I've found  Smiley Thanks so much for looking.

Lovely! The different shades of green in the body really give it depth and I love the wings.
