4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Dinosaur felt embroidery (inspired by LimeRiot) on: June 27, 2011 07:35:11 PM
Since last fall I've been building a Hoopla wall. I've always wanted to fill an entire wall with art and this seemed like a great way to have *two* walls. Did you know that one could go about building a Hoopla wall without having a single hoop of your own creation on it. Well....you can. 'Cause somehow I was.

Fixed that. With a quickness.



Lime posted an amazing tutorial on these boards for felt embroidery. I'd always used felt for stuffies and cat toys and really never considered putting it in a hoop.

After I saw her tutorial I knew that I wanted to do something with my felt. And since my Hoopla wall was lacking...it just seemed perfect. It was just going to be a normal round hoop with the dinosaur but when I was digging through my hoop basket I saw that oval hoop that had been abandoned there forever. So...this hoop came about.

Thank you Lime for the awesome tutorial. It was super fun and I have a whole new way to use felt now!

6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Psyduck (or How 1/4" squares made me crazy) on: June 13, 2011 06:26:53 PM
I've worked a lot with Perler beads in the past but when the Pokemon swap came around I wanted to do something different for my partner.

I decided to use hand-cut squares of paper to form my image. Winged_soul listed Psyduck as one of her favorite pokemon and I knew that I could break him down pretty easily.

I broke my canvas down into a 1" grid. Then I did a little math with my nifty Paint image and the space available and realized that I'd need to make my paper squares......1/4".

Clearly, I have trouble visualizing the size of something accurately.

I measured. And measured again. I thought that I had messed something up and had my husband do the math. Nope. 1/4". And although my husband said I was crazy, I cut tiny little squares.



It was....maddening. The moment it was finished I made some silly statement about "not doing that again".

Strange that I've already started putting down a grid on another canvas.  Wink
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / My first embroidery - Key to my Heart on: June 02, 2011 06:07:38 PM
I've always been a cross-stitch girl. I love having nothing to think about but x's.

I've been participating in the various rounds of the Hoopla swap and this round I was struck with the desire to do embroidery. (I must have been crazy...or caffeine-deprived)



Pattern from Urban Threads (every time they had a sale I'd grab a pattern or two just for artistic inspiration, now I'm glad I did)

It's certainly not as refined as I'd like. But it's my first embroidery hoop and I feel like I've opened a new door of crafting.  Grin
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Another Round of Pokemon Swap? on: January 26, 2011 09:01:58 AM
I don't know about anyone else but I'm counting down the days until Pokemon Black/White comes out.

Anyone interested in a Pokemon Swap? It's been a few months and I thought that crafting pokemon while waiting might be an awesome way to pass the time.  Wink
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Final Fantasy Bead Sprites on: June 30, 2010 03:33:02 PM
So I've been having a rough year and my mom is sending me to Blizzcon as a present (and something to look forward to).

So I wanted to send her a present in return. But I'm seriously broke and just started digging around in my closet. I found Perler beads that someone had given me but I'd never got around to playing with.

My mom got me started on gaming when I'd sit next to her and help her with Final Fantasy on NES when I was about 3 or 4.

So I made her Final Fantasy Sprites!
