Very cool, thanks Smiley And I'm totally not going to get it totally done in time for my April convention, but I've got my fingers crossed for the one in July Smiley

I considered doing Jane Lane too...her red shirt is probably much easier to find thriftily than Daria's green jacket!

I always hate to bump older posts --but this is super cool. I am actually trying to pull together a Daria cosplay for a couple of conventions I am going to this year. Did you use a pattern for the jacket or did you just kind of freehand it? It looks awesome!

Oh my gosh! I find these little guys endearing (although total jerks) now, but as a kid I thought they were terrifying. Great job on this! I want one!

That is flippin' adorable! What about making like...weird jewelery out of them?? Are they too big to be made into dangly-style earrings? The larger ones could be used in necklaces, maybe... Keychains? I think they're cute for their intended purpose; you could reuse them for bento boxes, or find out if a Mom or co-worker is looking for tiny condiment holders...

Thanks Smiley I just got my Thank You card from the bride and she seems quite pleased with the way it turned out.

Thanks Smiley I've got a bunch of Pokemon-loving friends that were quite jealous about it.

Thanks Smiley I've had quite a few of my Facebook friends tell me that it's a favorite; I'm pretty sure it's impossible to not like that movie. Plus, Alan-a-dale is adorable!!
8  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Pokemon FTW (Pt. 2) on: July 02, 2012 01:32:21 PM
Some of you may have seen my previous post, (Pokemon FTW) from last summer. Well, since then my BFF's wedding has come and gone, and I can FINALLY post pictures of her quilt! In case you aren't familiar with the previous post, my BFF and her husband are the BIGGEST Pokemon fans you could ever meet. Seriously, they are obsessive. So much in fact that they got ME hooked on it. Which was the last thing I needed. Oh well! This was a lot of fun to do with them, and I hope that they really, really enjoy it. I made it JUST big enough for them to share, cuddled together on the couch!

The full quilt! My sister did the actual "quilting" bit for me as well as the binding, and my Mom helped me peice the blocks and edging. I am solely responsible for the block embroidery and painting. It turned out a LOT nicer than my quilt did, I think. My Mom had the idea to fill in the center with patches made from the left over sheet bits (I actually ahve quite a few of these sheets; my sister had a set as a kid and I find them at Goodwill on occasion and can't pass them up!)

The backing is an old Pokemon sheet. I know, I know --sheets make terrible backing for quilts. YOU try finding decent Pokemon fabric!

Drifloon is my favorite!! He turned out so GOOD! (A Bride favorite)

Lickitung is the Groom's favorite.

Mew is the Bride's favorite --she even has a tattoo of him on her ankle.

Skitty was a throw in on the bride's side of the quilt. I needed another pinkish pokemon to even out the color.

Slowpoke, another Groom favorite.

Umbreon, another Groom Fave. I did the Shiny one on my quilt, but decided to do a standard on theirs.

I wouldn't post pictures to Facebook until after they had recieved and open their gift --which the BFF was really annoyed about. I wanted it to be a surprise! But about a week before the wedding, I did post this teaser for them. They knew what was on the quilt already, but hadn't seen any of the blocks. Plus, this is my favorite part of the whole quilt --the hearts just turned out perfectly!

Thanks for looking!
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Alan-A-Dale Pillowcase on: July 02, 2012 01:06:33 PM
So, two of my co-workers got married this previous weekend. To each other, I mean. When they first got engaged, I had been discussing that I usually make gifts, and was working on a Pokemon quilt for my BFF with the Bride. She got this sparkle in her eye and said, "If I invite you to my wedding, will you make me something?"

I told her she didn't have to invite me and I'd still make her something if she really wanted.  Roll Eyes Silly girl. But, they both think I'm totally awesome, so I was invited anyhow.

I asked her if she wanted a quilt --'cause if so, I'd need to know what theme she wanted me to go with. She said that she didn't want me to go through that much trouble --to just do whatever I thought I'd had time for, but that she had a love of Disney's Robin Hood, ever since she was a kid. So, I ran with it.

First, I thought about doing a Hoop-a-la for her, but then I figured she'd rather have something functional, not just decorative, so I started a pillow for her (...it's still a work in progress; maybe they'll get it for their first anniversary). Instead, I decided to do some pillow cases. Cute and functional.

Plus, I got to stitch Alan-a-dale, which is so much fun!

Sooo, since you read through all of that, here's your reward. Pics!

I unfortunately didn't get pictures of both pillow cases. I sort of forgot... but they're generally the same, aside from slight color differences.

Thanks for looking!

Haha, I totally thought those rocks were naturally blue and I was like, "Those are amazing, I want those!" Whew, glad I can make them myself Wink Cute project.
