Idlers - did you just melt the old candles and layer it?  How'd you do the wick?

IsikkahJai, there have been plenty of cross stitched hoops in past rounds that have been awesome, so there's nothing wrong with that.  However, if you want to learn to embroider, there are tons of tutorials out there, starting with the basics like...

backstitch: http://sarahwhittle.blogspot.com/2010/07/humble-backstitch.html
split stitch: http://handembroiderynetwork.blogspot.com/2009/09/stitch-day-split-stitch-snail.html
chain stitch: http://sarahwhittle.blogspot.com/2010/08/chain-stitch.html

And of course, plenty of fancy stitches to play with too Smiley

Thanks for these links!  Cheesy

Oooh, that's fun, I Sew Cute!  I love trying new stuff. Cheesy



Here's a picture of the totebag I sent to noxluff, who said she likes purple and swirls. Cheesy  It's lined in the same fabric and has long enough handles to go over her shoulder, as requested.

OOOOH!  I adore that garland of stars!  And those bags and the soapnuts and case and ... what a FABULOUS package!  I'd say it was worth the wait!
3245  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / What's part of your perfect needlework project bag? on: January 06, 2011 07:20:56 AM
My mom does needlepoint and she was using an old shopping bag for her project bag.  Suffice it to say, that is not acceptable.  Her birthday is the 15th, so I'm going to make her a project bag, but seeing as how I don't do needlepoint myself (I do cross-stitch and embroidery, though I don't have a project bag for myself), I was hoping some of you lovely ladies and gentlemen would help me.

If you had the perfect needlepoint project bag, what parts would you put in it?  Would there be a matching needlebook, a little place for scissors?  Some sort of contraption to hold the yarn?  What else would you need?

Thanks!

Oh dear, this sounds too fabulous to pass up.  I've been drooling over the other rounds, too, and though I'm not the most skilled of embroiderers, I'd LOVE to join!
