1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Phrenology and Cigarettes (Two separate projects) on: May 02, 2011 01:19:00 PM
Here's two pillows I made recently.  The first is a design based off of phrenology diagrams.  I have done a few of them, and I think I may have posted one a while back, but it was under a different user name and each one I make is a little different, so I thought I might as well post the newest!  These are a lot of fun to do.





This next pillow is a geometric design based off of packaging for Marlboro reds.  I really liked the idea of taking a fairly recognizable logo/packaging, stripping it down to its essentials, and repeating it to make a pattern.  It didn't turn out exactly as I'd anticipated, but I'm still pretty happy with it.





2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Pabst Blue Ribbon (6 pictures) on: April 17, 2011 12:08:20 PM
So these are some items that I made for a Pabst Blue Ribbon show/crafting challenge that I did a few months ago, where everything we were selling had to be PBR-themed.  The first is a pillow with the PBR logo embroidered onto a navy background.





And these are some felt coaster sets I did.  Each one has a can tab with the initials "PBR" in the middle.  For each coaster, I did the embroidery on the top layer, and then sandwiched a layer of interfacing between that and a contrasting color of felt and stitched it all together.









Thanks for looking!

Here is a set of three that I did, each featuring a pair of legs.  Hope you like them!







5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Hello, My Name Is... on: April 14, 2011 05:44:58 PM
I have always had a strange affinity for those name-tags you get at conferences, so I decided to embroider one!  I did the embroidery on a piece of blue fabric that I then stitched onto the white background, leaving the edges raw, and then I framed it in a painted white hoop.
