121  Re: Mug Rug Rd5 Swap - SO April 29th in The Swap Gallery by PerfectlyBohemian on: May 05, 2013 01:58:26 PM
Annigirl has received my mug rug on Thursday, so I am going to go ahead and post photos now Smiley

I left the edges unfinished, and put extra fabric layers between the top and bottom so that as it frays a little, you will see extra colors and patterns. I also mimicked the stitching that suereal did on my prayer flag recently and went all crazy on the stitching over the applique. For the front piece, I went with my partner's "hippie" theme... "peace, love, coffee/tea" Wink

I went outside the traditional mediums for the back piece and decided to do a little needle-felting on the wool sweater that I cut to go in the middle of the mug rug. The back went with my partner's "nature" theme.

122  Re: Embroidery Swap R9- Not just thread! (SO Mar 5) in The Swap Gallery by PerfectlyBohemian on: May 02, 2013 08:42:00 PM
Woohoo! I got my angel package from deathbeforedishes tonight! She is such an amazing crafter and picked something that was very high on my wishlist! This definitely takes "not just thread" to a crazy new level. She embroidered a cuckoo clock with an awesome little squirrel that matches a couple of pillows and other decor in my living room, and the teeniest little mushrooms at the bottom, and lots of other lovely things. The cuckoo bird itself is a sculpted piece. It was all mounted on a plaque with one of my favorite colors on the border, and a working clock is installed in it. This thing is so amazing!

I got my mug rug from annigirl tonight! She made some awesome mushroom applique. I love mushrooms and woodland themes Grin I really like the fabrics she chose for the scene, too.

Thanks, annigirl!

124  Needle Felted Fox and Forest Pincushion in a Teacup in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: April 24, 2013 11:16:22 AM
For the recent pincushion swap, I decided to make something I have been wanting to try for a long time for my swap partner (and good friend). She likes vintage things and woodland creatures, so I made a miniature forest pincushion with mushrooms, rocks, and trees. I absolutely had to make a cute little fox to sit there. Everything was needle felted wool, and then I plopped it inside a teacup that I have been saving for something special. I have lots more teacups, so I plan to run with this idea and make a bunch more Smiley

125  Embroidered Letter Hoops for Baby Room in Needlework: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: April 18, 2013 09:14:35 AM
I just realized I never posted the rest of the letters that I made for my friend's baby. I posted the first two a couple months ago, so here they are with the rest of them. The baby's room is a beach theme in brown, teal, and coral. I used some of the fabric that I got for her diaper bag and some extras that I bought in case I make her something else later for the room Smiley

I had fun with this project and got to learn a lot of new stitches. I wish I had a picture of them all hanging, but I haven't seen the baby's room yet, and had no where to hang them for pictures.

I've not been very attentive with this swap because my partner and I have been conversing through email. But I see some lovely pincushions! I'm especially digging the creepy mushroom one.

My partner and I were living in the same town (were because she just moved north), so I left my package for her on my doorstep so she could pick it up when she got back to town. I got up this morning to a lovely new pincushion that was left for me Smiley I love little woodland scenes, so handmadewithlove crammed a few of my favorite things into a teeny little scene. She said the fox was inspired by a quilt block I pinned, and I think this was her first time making her own cross-stitch design. I love the little mushroom and bumblebee, too! Such sweet touches. To top it off, the jar is actually a good size, and I can store some sewing goods inside for when I go to meetups. She even included a few useful (and cute) things!

I am so in love with my little fox! It will be hard to stick too many pins in this little guy because I want won't to poke the little cutey.

127  Fallout Stamped Bottle Cap Garden Markers in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: April 16, 2013 11:35:43 AM
Here's another one of my crafts from the recent Video Game Swap. I wanted to make some (semi-) functional things for my partner, and she told me about her extensive garden, and her efforts to become more energy conscious. I wish I had had more supplies to make more of these for her. I hammered a bunch of blank, unused bottle caps flat, and then I stamped them with herb names. I decided to go back and add the Vault Tec logo from Fallout on an extra bottle cap for each marker to make sure it was very obvious that the bottle caps were a reference to the Fallout currency. (I made the Vault Tec logo stamp, too, but that is for another post Wink ). I also sealed them a few time to make sure the stampings didn't wash off. It was hard to take pictures of these because the caps were so shiny. They say "Chives", "Oregano", "Parsley", and "Rosemary".

I really wanted some action shots, but I didn't want to get her garden markers dirty before shipping them off ;P

Oh, happy dance! I just got my first hoop. Haroldlovesmaude was an awesome partner. My first package went missing after a long detour to get to my town. She made a replacement hoop, and I am sooo excited and happy about it. It is also on an 8-inch hoop, which I think is very big because I usually do everything on 4-6 inch hoops...

Here is my lovely new fox hoopla by haroldlovesmaude:

The embroidery is so awesome, and I love foxes, and I love felt. Thanks so much, haroldlovesmaude!

129  Needle-felted Orgrimmar Wall Hanging in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: April 16, 2013 06:05:04 AM
For the recent Video Game Swap, my partner mentioned that her favorite landscape/area of World of Warcraft was Orgrimmar. She also put in a request for wall art for her home. I decided to do a needle felted scene (on a wool sweater) of the front gates of Orgrimmar for her. The finished design was much bigger than I meant for it to be. I think the frame was about 18" x 24"... I used scraps of the sweater from the sleeves to make the little flags as separate parts which I tacked back on to the main piece.

I received!! And oooh my goodness, Myrrda is amazing. I hope I didn't nearly break my poor husband's eardrums squealing over some the kitchen/tea towels Wink

These were the first thing I wrestled out of a very tightly packed box: not one, but two amazing Pokemon Teatime Kitchen/tea towels! (How cute!)

An amazing Piranha Plant Apron!

THREE mug rugs based off the costumes of Mario, Princess Peach, and Toad:

A beautiful Botanicula Beer Mug: Myrrda said it was her first time using glass etching cream, and I think it came out really well!

And to top it off, a pile of Paper Mario magnets, which will be finding their way to my office to decorate my computer case and filing cabinet Grin

I had to go back and check that this was a four point swap because Myrrda spoiled me so much! Now I am really having some anxiety over my package to her.... Myrrda, I hope you love everything I sent as much as I loved my package!
