1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / My first grown-up polymer clay project on: June 24, 2009 12:18:28 PM
I used to play around with Fimo clay as a kid and when I saw all the cool stuff people were doing here, I decided to give it another try.  My sister's birthday was coming up and she said she didn't want anything so I decided to surprise her with homemade jewelry.

Here they are, in Sculpey :

A little cupcake necklace (about the size of a sugar cube)


Little donut earrings (smaller than a dime)

I'm not sure I like these, I found that Sculpey got really soft after a while and working on such small objects was rather hard.  You can see my finger prints on the donuts too (ugly!) but they don't really show when she's wearing them.  And since my sister was very happy (she actually thought they were store-bought... Wink ) I guess they're fine for a first try.

Comments and critics are welcome, thanks for taking the time to check these out!
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Final Fantasy Terra Crossstitch on: April 04, 2009 12:39:41 PM
Here is another crossstitch I made from Final Fantasy :


It's stitched on a bag strap.  The material was so thick I actually broke my first needle on it!  I used waste canvas and have been asked why I didn't stitch on Aida canvas and stitched the finished design to the strap afterwards...  I think it looks better this way!   Cheesy

Here is an action shot to show you just how big (or small!) it is :


I'm probably going to stitch 1 or 2 more characters on there when I get the time.

Hope you enjoy it!
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Mog Cross stitch on: March 16, 2009 05:50:37 PM
When I started to stitch a couple of months ago, I kept thinking it was the perfect medium for pixel art images.  Being little squares themselves, it couldn't be too hard to transform them into crossstitches.

This is the first I did.  I chose a simple character from one of my boyfriend's favorite video games, Final Fantasy VI.



Here is another view to show it's size :


It was a bit harder than I expected because the shirt I chose was a little elastic and because my waste canvas kept moving a little...  I think it turned out ok nonetheless.

Thanks for looking! Smiley
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Chickens Crossstitch on: March 13, 2009 06:59:14 PM
Here is a crossstitched hand towel I did for my mother...  Her kitchen is decorated with chickens and roosters so it fits nicely.



Here is a detailed view without the chicks :



I chose a pattern sheet from One Nighters called 59 chickens and created my own little scene with the chicks.  I like it, but I find the towel I found with the canvas on it is a little cheap...  My mom likes it too so I guess that's all that counts!

Thanks for taking the time to look!
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Flounder my first crossstitch on: March 13, 2009 06:54:22 PM
I'm a little nervous as this is my first post. Embarrassed

I taught myself crossstitch last fall as a means to relax and get my mind off work.  I thought a little manual work would be a great way to do so.

Here is my first crossstitch, from a kit I ordered online :



It isn't much but I'm rather proud of how it looks...  You don't see too many mistakes! Tongue

Thanks for looking!
