1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Help Creating a Pattern on: November 15, 2013 07:18:47 PM
I've done quite a few cross stitching projects so far but I have never gotten down the knack of creating patterns. I work for eBay and would really like to stitch the logo as a gift for one of my coworkers. Would any of you amazingly talented fellow stitchers be able to help me out with a pattern or giving me some good tips on how you turn a picture into a pattern. I know this is a pretty simple on but I'm totally stumped as to how to get the font right. Thanks!

P.s. I would like this to be pretty small since I have a mini frame to put it in but really any size would be great.

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / WoW Baby! on: February 22, 2010 07:25:39 PM
I stitched these three onesies for a friend who's having a baby in just a couple days now. She's an avid World of Warcraft player, and although I am not these were lots of fun to make. My boyfriend had to help me out when it came to picking out the sayings though because I didn't even know what was at all clever or cute. For anyone else who isn't in the know:
BoP = Bind on Pickup, Whelpling = A baby dragon, Hearthstone = (I believe) what you use to take you back to the inn when you're ready to save and quit... The letters are just a bit sloppy in places because I'm still working on my satin stitch and have a hard time with rounded edges sometimes Smiley

I hope you like them!
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Embroidery Backing? on: January 24, 2010 04:02:22 PM
I just started a project embroidering on onesies but they have such a loose weave! Is there anything around the house I can use to back it and then rip off? I'm eager to start and don't have the chance to get to a craft store in the immediate future. I searched for an answer but couldn't find anything useful. Thanks in advance!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Onesies? on: January 21, 2010 04:22:28 PM
Could anyone tell me where to find nice plain white onesies? I'm wanting to make something cute for a friend about to have a baby but not sure the best place to find such a thing. Thanks in advance!
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Growth of a Tree. on: January 18, 2010 05:22:23 PM
I stitched this a bit ago for my dads birthday since he really likes trees. I got the inspiration for it by a piece of work I saw on "Feeling Stitchy." I am so sorry I didn't note the name of the person who did this wonderful work, if you know please tell me know so I can give them credit. This is what inspired me: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v390/spikedXpunch/3474659908_80b97b8755.jpg

And this is what I did:

I'm not too fond of the roots on the middle tree because they look like deer antlers to me! I used satin stitch, back stitch, french knots, and split stitch.
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Crewel? on: January 11, 2010 03:24:33 PM
I believe this would be called crewel? It is using wool but I'm not sure what differentiates this from other embroidery... Anyways, this is my first time posting and I would just like to say everything you guys do is amazing!

This project took me a really long time because it is all the original yarn and it KEPT falling apart no matter how careful I was with it. The kit (I got it at an estate sale) came with a matching owl which I hope to defeat one day. Once I've saved up enough patience I guess. This was my first embroidery project that I ever finished and since then I've learned a lot but I think it's not too bad for a beginner Smiley

Sorry I didn't iron out the hoop mark yet...
