785  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidered Sailor Jerry Tattoo Napkins on: February 01, 2010 02:18:57 PM
I had a spare flannel sheet, so I cut it into squares and made napkins.  Then I embroidered them with designs from a book of Sailor Jerry Tattoo stencils.  I like that the stencils are the exact size the real tattoos would have been.  And I kind of like that the fabric is off-white -- makes me think of cigarette-smoke yellowed tattoo flash hanging in a shop.  Anyway, the whole process of doing these (preparing the transfers, stitching them) was fun because it reminded me of actually getting a tattoo!!  I didn't iron these, because I won't be ironing them in real life when we use them.  I used two strands of black.  I used mostly stem stitch and back stitch.  I will be making 12 napkins in all, but this set of 4 is the first I've completed.

"A Sailor's Grave" - I played around with shading a lot on this one.

Seahorse - not my personal favorite design, but it's the one my husband chose.

"USN" for United States Navy.  I hope the design isn't backwards.  Didn't feel like shading this as much.

Swallows.  I put my name and my husband's name in the banners.

Comments welcome!  Thanks for looking!

OK, here's a pic of my attempt to do wet-felting over soap.  It's mossy green with just a bit of white roving.  Overall, it seems to be pretty even.  I had a hard time initially wrapping the roving over the bar, but once it was in place and I wet it down, it seemed OK.

One question:  there's a spot near the edge where it's felted, but there's a little bit of a "ledge" -- too small to photograph, but a little lump where the felt must have been folded over on itself.  Could I needle felt a wonky bit like that into place to make it smooth?

Great job! I"m really tempted to go ahead and spin some of my undyed alpaca.

hahaha me too!  I was wasting time on youtube the other night watching spinning videos.  Now I want to go go go!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who's been obsessively watching youtube spinning videos.  Up until I saw this "learn to spin" thread I thought I had NO interest in spinning. I thought, "Man, I just DO NOT NEED another hobby."  But it became irresistible to follow along and give it a try!!  The first piece I tried to draft was kind of a mess, but I was a lot better even by the second try!  A million thanks to Jane Doe for putting this all together.  Now I just need my spindle to arrive....

Wow -- I also had no idea bamboo was so volatile!  Good to know!!!  (Makes me kind of glad I never splurged on bamboo sheets for my bed.)
