1   / CHALLENGE 109 ENTRIES / Coat of Arms hoopla on: August 11, 2015 08:46:36 AM
I made this for the Yarnies vs Sewists Spring 2015 swap (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=438476.msg5297172#msg5297172) which has a really brilliant gallery (go look  Wink).  Sadly, my partner flaked but I got a wonderful angel package from P_E_S_T which more that made up for it.  Smiley

My partners questionnaire said that one of her biggest interests was kings, princess and everything related to royality. Since Im sending from the UK I decided it would be the perfect theme to pick. The hoop shows the British royal family coat of arms using felt applique and embroidery. I think it measured about 8 across. Im a little gutted I didnt take better pictures before I sent but this shows it pretty well.

My partner in the OAHPT2 swap loves jewellery so I made her a travel holder and some pieces based on her favoute House and characters. Hopefully itll come in handy when shes out hunting horcruxes or visiting the Quidditch World Cup. Wink

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Kumihimo Coaster Set on: July 05, 2015 02:08:28 PM
This year is the 150th anniversary of one of my favourite books, Alice in Wonderland.

I made this coaster set to fill a couple of prompts over on the Summer Nerd Games. There is one each inspired by Alice, the Queen of Hearts and the Cheshire Cat. They're all 8 stand kumihimo braid spiraled around a button with charms attached and backed with felt.

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Secret Garden Lace Cuff on: July 02, 2015 05:01:23 AM
This is one of those stash busting projects which used up some odds and ends I had lying around. It was my first time making anything like this and I had great fun playing around with which bits to use and where.

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Wedding Jewellery set on: July 02, 2015 04:10:29 AM
Im attending a my cousins wedding this weekend and (as usual) was woefully unprepared. I finally bought a dress a few days ago and couldnt face any more shopping so I quickly made some matching jewellery myself. I used  Czech glass seed beads and glass pearls in two sizes and strung them together using a right angle weave technique.

6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Game of Thrones Couples on: April 03, 2015 03:02:37 AM
I decided our hallway was looking far too plain so I've been working on what I've been referring to as The Nerd Wall. My first additions are these three Game of Thrones cross-stitch hoops.

The sprites for Dany, Drogo, Sansa and Tyrion came from pixelpowerdesign on Etsy. I added the text and designed the Sandor sprite to match.

7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / A Tiny Alice on: March 31, 2015 04:27:51 PM
For audania1 in the A Little Alice (OTT) swap. It's a John Tenniel illustration of the croquet scene.

It'd been a really long time since my last swap so I was a little nervous but audania1 was such a fantastic partner and I loved making this for her. Smiley
