1  Rainbow Puking Unicorn? Oh yes, I did. in Needlework: Completed Projects by peteyandrocco on: July 24, 2012 08:50:46 AM
So, a while ago (long long time ago) I saw this:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=387208.0
and decided I  *had* to do it. So, I found the reference picture and went for it.




Here you can see that I outlined the lines of the tail, but it was a waste of time. You couldn't really see them on the finished project.

I don't know why it's wrinkly, but this is the biggest embroidery I've ever done and my first non words one. It's about 7 in. tall and 6. wide.I used satin stitch for the rainbow, hooves, and horn, split stitch for the mane and tail, and back stitch for the outline. I changed a few things like the ears and eyes. I don't like how the nose or how the front right hoof turned out. If I were doing this again, I would change the way the tail is to more of a lion's tail which is how it's depicted in some medieval paintings/tapestries, and do it in grays. Otherwise, I like it! Think I may turn it into a bag. Thanks for looking, c+c encouraged.

2  Hippos and Bow Ties. What more could you want? in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by peteyandrocco on: July 29, 2011 05:25:09 PM
Hi, my name is Gratia, and I make felt animals. So far, I have made around 15 different types. This little hippo is one of my first patterns, and is very different from my current style. I plan on eventually taking pictures and posting all my animals on Craftster, but I'm sick and feeling lazy, so consider this like a teaser.

I've made many more hippos, some with antlers (hippopotomooses), and some with tye dye felt (hippiepotomi). He only took me about an hour from start to finish. Thanks for looking.

Edit: How can I fix it so that there's no error picture as a thumbnail? Thanks!

3  Ripply Star Blanket Help? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by peteyandrocco on: June 29, 2011 08:27:28 AM
Hi, I'm making this blanket: http://thekidneybean.wordpress.com/crochet-patterns/chromium-star-blanket/ , but it's not laying flat, it's all ripply. I made one before, and it too was ripply, so for this one I'm using a bigger hook, but I still have the same problem. I have the right gauge, but it doesn't seem to help make it flat. Thanks! Also, I'm using the right size yarn. And I forgot the picture:

4  Cinnamon Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies in Dessert by peteyandrocco on: May 15, 2011 05:34:51 PM
These were my first from-scratch cookies, and I am quite proud of them. I got the recipe from the magazine Family Circle, and I will type up the recipe if anyone really wants me to.

5  My turn at a ruffle skirt, multi-colorful in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by peteyandrocco on: April 30, 2011 05:43:47 PM
I was inspired to make one after I saw this post-http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=378238.0, and decided that I needed to make one. However, I wasn't going to spend 16+ dollars/yard on some ruffle fabric, so I put it on the back burner and went on to other things. Today, I found some ruffle fabric at Jo-Ann's for 5 dollars/yard, so I squealed (yes, I actually did) and bought it all. The waistband is funny, but I'm not fixing it (again). It was really easy to make, and only took me about 45 minutes. If I make another one, I'm going to put in a zipper, not the elastic. Without further ado, and apologies for my rambling, here is my (knee length) ruffle skirt:
The front:

The fishtail sorta thing in the back:

6  Giant, 8 ft, orange and rainbow leopard print squid with white faux-fur hair in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by peteyandrocco on: April 29, 2011 05:09:40 PM
So, I started this early Feb. I got all the pieces cut out, then I started hand-sewing it. Big mistake. I ran out of steam after just one short tentacle and one long tentacle. So, I started it up again this past Sunday, and finished it last night. Now, without further rambing, my squid (PS-what should I name him? I want a play on words, like Squidartha or Bo-Squiddly (Both taken)):

If I could change anything, I would have centered the tentacles better, and used orange thread, not black, to sew him up.

Thanks for looking!!!

7  First hoody ever. White with ears and paisley lining. New one with rabbit ears in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by peteyandrocco on: April 21, 2011 03:55:14 PM
I was bored today, so I made a hoody. It's the first one I've ever made, and it turned out fantastic, except for the fact that the sleeves are a little tight, so I can't really wear it with anything but a tank top. Which I'm not wearing. Also, sorry for the funny face, my mom wouldn't take them unless I smiled. One more thing, I'm not really that fat, the sweatshirt is just real baggy.




I made this one a little short, but, whatever. I don't have enough left of the polkadots to create another tube to sew on. The sleeves weren't supposed to be green, but I ran out of pink...oops...in this case, winging it didn't quite work. (It's too short because I had to cut off some pink for the hood...). I like it...and from now on, it was supposed to have green sleeves and be short...

8  Twist on a circle skirt-picture is up! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by peteyandrocco on: April 16, 2011 06:55:03 PM
I had this favorite pair of jeans. I wore them soo much, they kinda rubbed away at the crotch area, and we all know that that's never a good thing. So, I turned them into this skirt:

Anyway, it's a really simple skirt, and I can type up a tutorial if anyone wants one.
*Ps-it's not crooked, it just looks it in the picture. It also isn't hemmed.
