2  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / swappish idea. on: January 14, 2010 02:55:44 AM
I hate to be the kind of person who just walks in here completely oblivious, but I'm looking for some quick answers.
I have always enjoyed the Swap idea on this website, but I was curious if anyone has planned an auction of sorts for relief in Haiti? Like, a set up of people posting what they can offer whether it be a care package, baked goods, knitted items, what have you. Then other posters bid on offerings and all the proceeds to be donated. I hope I am making sense/it's late here. I know that money is usually not involved in the Swap process, so could there perhaps be some sort of separate Craftster Event for this?
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / keepsake pillow on: June 01, 2009 12:28:17 PM
So I made this pillow for a friend, along with some other stuff as a thank you gift. The blue is felt. I backhand stitched an outline of a black lab (after his dog that is no longer with us) on a black felt cutout and used a small red blended fleece scrap to make a team zissou beanie for the dog.


I used some sequins for stars and secured them with french knots. I used a sparkly thread to connect the little dipper sequins.

The pillow itself is some canvas wicker print thing I found in my garage. This is my second time attempting to stitch and I'm really happy with the outcome.


thoughts are appreciated Smiley
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / zombie pinup girl...thing. on: May 27, 2009 09:11:48 PM
I had the best intentions when making this shirt for a friend. I've never embroidered before, but I figured it wouldn't be too hard. WRONG.

I awkwardly tie dyed a white shirt a dark green color, and tried to embroider this sketch i drew/mostly traced onto the lower corner of it:


that sketch was made from this photo I found off google:


this was the finished product:


(I'm not very happy with it because it didn't come out how I wanted it to, and I made a lot of alterations to cover up my mistakes)

Oh well, I'm still proud I finished it and didn't end up burning it or anything. Smiley


sorry for crappy quality photos!
