21  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Pin-up "Hot Stuff" and "Sugar" on: April 12, 2011 11:40:24 AM
So, I'm still a newbie to this needlepoint thing that I am loving so much. I seriously can not stop myself from picking up the needle, floss and fabric and st-st-stitching!  I have made these gals for some coffee cup cozie thing-a-ma-bobbers! I've just done the stitching so far, haven't sewn up the actual cozies yet, but wanted to share. The "Hot Stuff" was my guys brilliant idea. I was staring at her and couldn't think of a name and he said "Well, if it's going to be for a coffee thing, Hot Stuff. What would I do without him.  I also made "Sugar" and will do a "Cream", that one cracks me up! I didn't design her, did the writing free hand on the banner though.  So I just used backstitch on these, using 1 and 2 strings. I kinda did a different direction backstitch, going up and then down on Sugar's hair for a diff look.  Hope you like 'em! Cheesy







22  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Felted Frida on: March 31, 2011 03:29:43 PM
Hello All!  I hope I am posting this to the correct category.  I have created a couple little Frida's out of felt.  These were hand sewn and cut, created from my little noggin'.  The idea came to me as I was trying to figure out what to gift my groovy Momma for Christmas 2010.  I looked upon a pin she had made and gave to me out of polymer clay and then my hands took over. The Frida with the red top/serape was made in the image of my Momma's pin. The Frida with the blue blouse was commissioned to me by a friend at work.  She was looking for a gift for her son's artist girlfriend. They both loved the gifts and that has made me soooo happy and wanting to create more.  I picked up the frames for them at a local Marshalls, but I removed the glass (or rather my guy did that for me). The glass was squishing her face), I think they were 5" x 7" frames. The felt I used was simple squares that I have bunches of for little projects.  Hope you like these ladies! Gracias for looking. Please feel free to comment!!




23  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Frida and a Sailor Jerry Gal on: March 31, 2011 02:50:34 PM
Hello Crafsters! I am fairly new to crafster and have been diggin' everyone's work, talent and enthusiasm here!  I would like to begin sharing some of the items I have now gotten my crafty little hands into.  I have just recently taken up the art/craft/hobby/love/addiction of hand embroidery.  There have been items in my crafty past where I've done hand stitching to create, such things as little felt thingies, but this is my first venture into actually hand embroidery for a whole project. I am now just in my 3rd week of creating nonstop little bitty pieces.  Please take a look at my pics and let me know what you think. I found a picture of Frida that I thought I could start out with (want to do more) and used transfer paper to get the design on my fabric.  The cutie pie retro gal is a Sailor Jerry design I'm sure you are familiar with if you are into tatts like me.  I used backstitch and some french knots on these.  I used 2 and 1 string for the faces because I thought they needed to be a little delicate being that they are about 2 1/2 inches in height. The Frida is on re-purposed fabric.  Hope you dig 'em!! Grin
