24  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Help with new son's nursery project?! on: April 04, 2009 07:39:04 PM
Ok, I need help, like tons...Smiley I have found these stickers.. for my new son's nursery (due July 4th) and would like to make little framed somethings from them. With one animal per frame, (Monkey, Elephant, Giraffe, Lion, and Crocodile) I would really like to try my hand at embroidering them. I am thinking because they are so simple, that it would be relatively easy to blow them up and then transfer them to some kind of fabric...So I have a few issues...I have cross stitched before, but years ago, and have never embroidered. I have found out, from reading the threads on here, that using Aida? cloth would not be the best idea for embroidery vs. cross stitch because of the little squares. But I don't know what to use...Smiley I would prefer not to use white, just cause I think it would look to stark, and I would love to do chocolate, but would that look bad with the monkey? I really really want to embroider, but I kinda feel silly and bad asking for so much help, but I figure you have to start somewhere, right? So, I need help 1.figuring out what cloth to use, 2.a definite idea on how to transfer these images....esp. since I've only ever done counted or stamped cross stich and I'm scared to free hand. I know I could print them out on iron-on transfer paper, then iron on to my fabric, but I'm not sure if that's the best idea. And 3.which embroidery stitches I should use!! I know it's a lot to ask and I feel like I should practically just pay someone to do this for me, but I really want to do this! Smiley Thank you so much in advance for any and all help! Thank you thank you thank you!! Smiley

these are lovely  Smiley

i was thinking of trying to make a box of ladybugs for my friend who is about to have a baby, but how did you get the black lines on the bees?! thanks!

I love the ladybug idea!! Your post came in while i was posting the other reply, so i hope that that one answers your question...if not let me know. P.S. I am pretty sure that there is a ladybug on one of the cartridges for the Cricut and I know that some scrapbooking stores (at least the ones around here) have a cricut that you can use during crop sessions, if you don't have access to one amongst your friends/family. And I'm pretty sure Martha Stewart has a ladybug punch. When and if you do one, I can't wait to see the finished results! Smiley


thanks! i went to Michael's today and found that Martha Stewart ladybug punch! and then stole your paint chip idea, i think ill do just different shades of red/pink! but i have one more question, i hope you don't mind  Huh but what did you put under them that made them look like they were floating? i was thinking about cutting up packaging peanuts but idk if that'd work! thanks!!  Smiley

Hi! I don't mind questions at all!!! Glad to help! I used these little guys called Zots...I found them at Michael's around like the photo corners, glue dots, and photo tape that you would use for scrapbooking...Zots are little silicone sticky dots, they are a thicker version of the gooey strips like you'd find on magazines, holding paper on...sorry for the graphic-ness of this, but they are almost a little boogery...lol. Zots are a stronger thicker version of those. But I have read that other people use the foam squares to make them 3d. I think that the packaging peanuts idea is a great one, but the fact that you'd have to glue both sides sounds tedious to me...both Zots and the foam thingies are pre-sticky on both sides...but more power to you!!! Let me know how it goes and don't forget to post photos!!! Smiley

Paint samples !!! That's so clever. I never would have thought of that.

But how did you put the bees on them?? I'm not really familiar with the cricut... did it just cut out the black bits of the bees so you could put coloured backing on??

I hope to copy this one day Cheesy

Thanks so much!!! The Cricut is fantastic!!! I did our Christmas gift tags and a Christmas gift with it too. I actually cut out each bee in three stages...the full body in one piece, including the wings, tail and antennae out of the colored paper. (not really colored paper...but my paint samples...the new Cricut can cut stuff that is pretty thick) The Cricut then has another 'image' which consists of the top body piece (which I cut in black) and the three stripes. So for every bee I ended up with two body/stripe sets, which I split for the colored stripe/black body combo I used. I still have a bunch of black stripes and colored bodies...who knows what I will use them for. Smiley I glued them together layer by layer, then after they dried, used Zots (sticky blobs of silicone which come on a roll) to stick them at an angle to the shadowbox backing. It came together pretty easily, which makes me want to make another...it's just a matter of finding an image I want to make into a collage that matches someone I know...Smiley Thanks for the comment and questions!
