1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / iPod Beanbag on: June 29, 2012 05:12:26 AM
So when I do my cross stitch I like to sit on bed and watch Youtube videos etc on my iPod. Now my iPod is rather slippery so it often slides from where ever I have strategically placed it. Today I decided to make a beanbag for it so I can sit it on my knee and craft away without having to try not to move or having to pick it up all the time.

So I sat down, sketched what I wanted then made a pattern. I then spent the afternoon hand sewing it. It has a larger triangular part at the back which is filled with rice and a little ledge at the front to hold up the iPod which is made from kebab skewers.

Sorry about the terrible photos, I only have my phone camera.




(watching some Big Bang Theory bloopers!)



It works a treat (as you can kinda see)
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Owl Hoop on: June 27, 2012 09:05:01 PM
So i just finished this simple hoop, it is a free pattern from Kincavel Krosses. I wanted to something quick so I had something finished as I normally do bigger projects that take forever! Not sure what I am going to do with it now. Smiley

It was also used for the Harry potter Craftalong.

Just finished this one tonight, love it! Will be framed in the near future.

4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Hello Kitty Zombie X-Stitch on: June 02, 2012 07:32:19 AM
So I finally finished this piece after about a year of doing little bits here and there. It began as just Hello Kitty then for some reason I decided to add the preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'background........silly') me. I will put it in a frame at some stage (when I get around to framing all the other I have lying around)

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Polka Dot Tea Wallet on: April 18, 2012 10:32:43 PM
So this was my first attempt at making one. I don't have access to a sewing machine right now so it was all done by hand. I also forgot to pick up interfacing at the fabric store so I lined it with a sheet of felt. It makes it rather bulky, so when I make more of them I will make sure I use interfacing. I will also use a sewing machine. But this one is for me so its ok, it can look a bit special. I used a snap dome closure and made a cute wee bow on top. I think I might add a black star button at some stage.

The bit to close it is different from most other I have seen, the ribbon is sewn across the front, and it seems a bit more secure than the loop ones I have seen.

Hope you like it





6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Burlesque Zombie Pinup Girl Cross Stitch on: April 16, 2012 08:37:17 AM
She is amazing! Most of this was completed while on the bus on route to my vet nursing course (and in my lunch breaks). A lot of hours went into her and I am rather proud!

Hope you like her Smiley
