1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: learning embroidery on: June 11, 2014 02:56:42 PM
Thank you, guys! I'm actually blushing here. Smiley
That is very nice. It looks like a monogram.  Maybe you could put it on a bag - or the lapel of a coat - I don't know how large it is.

It's about 30 cm long. I've been thinking about a bag as well... But I already have a ridiculous amount of bags...
Well, there's no such thing as to many handbags, is there? Smiley

I recently started to embroider a few of my sketches to try out different stitches. I'm not really sure what to do with these, apart from framing them, but they're fun to do! Here's the first:

It's a combination of chain stitches, split stitches, stem stitches and whipped stem stitches.
I hope you like it!

These are so beautiful, all of them!
And even though I'd probably never wear the yellow and blue one, it made me go "Uuuuh, pretty!"*_* the moment I saw it. Smiley
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Pilgrims bag and alms purse (aumnire) on: June 09, 2013 12:51:27 PM
Thank you both! Smiley
I wish I had more from* the red jacquard, but there's just enough left for another purse, some buttons or maybe a belt... Can you imagine that someone used it to line (parts of a) jacket made of puke green curdoroy and black velvet with a flower pattern? Such a waste! Cheesy

*Please correct my grammar, if neccessary. I spend to little time on talking with native speakers...^_^
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pilgrims bag and alms purse (aumnire) on: May 20, 2013 10:07:53 PM
Two last minute LARP projects:
1. Pilgrims bag made of uphosltery fabric, silk yarn and an old linen pillow case for lining. The fabric was so stiff, I had to hand sew over all the edges with silk yarn to make them "edgy". Ironing this thing was nearly impossible! On the bright side, the two sides had different colours, so I used the green "wrong side" for strap and... flap? Is it called a flap?



2. Aumnire made of fabric scraps (jaquard and linen). I finished that at the LARP Convention, thus it's a little bit messy.


One day, far in the future, I will beautify the tassels. Wink
Sadly, the only "action shot" I can offer does not show anything clearly. I'm sorry, guys!

(I posted about the belt here.)
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Pearl Clutcher Cardigan! *mature* on: February 03, 2013 10:01:33 AM
I was like, "Did she mark them mature because she's drinking in the photos Huh"

Wait.  Ooooh. Cheesy

Exactly this. Cheesy I wouldn't wear this sweater in public, but that's just me. It looks both pretty and well done!
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Coasters and potholders from an old sweater on: December 26, 2012 09:55:29 AM
Just so you know, wool does not like hot water... A lesson I "learned" more than once. Roll Eyes
This particular sweater was shrunk beyond repair, so I used it to make these:

This picture also illustrates how long it took for me to learn another lesson: Coasters are useful!
One day, I'll fix that table... Anyhow, the potholders are made of two layers. The coasters are made of one layer sewn onto some sturdy, yellow polyester felt, which you can see here:

I tried to use all scraps, so the round coaster is made from the roundish shoulder parts of the sleeves, sewn together in the middle.
The only leftovers are:
  • the cuffs, which I wear as cuffs.
  • the hem. I've already decided to neither make a headband nor an infinity scarf for toddlers out of it. Any other ideas?
Action shot and size reference:

Comments, criticism, grammar advice: bring 'em on! Smiley
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Memory wire bracelets on: December 21, 2012 06:53:58 AM
I love seed bead bracelets and had quite a few of them. But they were all made of thin elastic thread and over the years I've torn them all. But luckily this used to happen at home, so I was able to save the beads. Enter memory wire:




I love them all, but my favourite is the big green one. The last two are made to light up grey days with childhood memories. Doesn't the left one look almost edible? Cheesy C&c -and corrections of grammar mistakes- are very welcome!
Happy holidays everyone!

Thank you all very much! Smiley
