1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / embroidered portrait - original design on: June 16, 2008 07:46:38 PM
this is an embroidered portrait of my friend abigail.  i did the design from a blind drawing i did of her at an art show.  it ended up looking not so blind, so i just cleaned it up a little and made it into an embroidery.

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / embroidered letter on: January 22, 2008 06:35:32 AM
just a little something i did awhile ago ... embroidered a letter to a friend.  this is a detail from it.



i was inspired by the chicken building at the ohio state fair.  Smiley

what this actually is, is the wrong side of a punch needle embroidery, my latest obsession.  i wanted it to be as much a freehand embroidery as possible, though i did sketch a very rough outline in pencil before sewing.

anyone else experimented with punch needle?

6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / first print in a long time, used screen drawing fluid on: June 01, 2005 01:00:28 AM
no photoemulsion here!  this is all freehand based on a pre-existing image!  i'm sad about the poor registration, but happy with the effect otherwise.

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / balloon bra on: May 18, 2005 01:03:30 PM

aka the infinite cleavage valentine gift bra ... i did this about a year ago, it's a bra i got at wal-mart and carefully shoved about 500 balloons in each cup using a seam ripper and (by the end of the project) my very sore fingers.  i was experimenting with different ways to apply latch hook.  i think the result came out very fun.  and it's *really* fun to squeeze!!!   Cheesy
