That's awesome.

Honestly, to me that says retro kitchen/cocktail hour apron.

Vertical panels was what I was thinking. Smiley

Could you make a tank top/dress/skirt in panels? They look to be about the same set of colors.

Also, If you're looking for an inexpensive laptop lightbox, check out the toy section and the Crayola stuff. I have one that was made for kids to trace pictures of racecars to color. (They are annoyingly gender packaged, the other is in pink for fashion tracing.)
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: Fabric Pens vs. Crayola Washable Markers on: September 14, 2010 02:37:11 PM
yeah, being that I work at a school, I have used the crayola washable markers.  They are good for use with fabric and wash out completely.  I have also used the "wet-erase" markers with great success.  But you have to be planning to actually wash the item: neither one is very easy to just rinse out of part of the item without washing.

That's brilliant! I have a bunch of wet-erase I use for drawing on vinyl maps for D&D. I'm so glad i won't have to go out and buy something special.

I've painted on acrylic wall paint with acrylics from Utrecht.

It was this kind of stuff that comes in tubs. I used it when I did the pirate bathroom in my friend's house. I'll have to see if I can find some pics. I'm sure they're around somewhere.

Have you tried the Library of Congress website?

With counted cross-stitch, you begin in the middle. It helps to make sure that your design is centered. The chart should have a marking in the center. To begin, fold your fabric in half in both directions and that is your middle. ( X marks the spot.) The design should tell you how many stands of the embroidery floss to work with. thread that many into your needle. Resist the temptation to work with longer lengths of thread. It will be more likely to tangle.

There should also be a symbol key on the pattern. Each symbol will be a different color.  There are multitudes of examples of the cross stitch on the inernet, as well as back stitch, which will be any straight lines on the pattern.

Coiled fabric bowls. You'd see the colors but not the pattern on the fabric.
