1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Vintage Style Microphone Hand Embroidered on a Hankerchief on: July 09, 2012 08:14:05 PM
So, I have cross stitched plenty, but had never embroidered anything. I thought it was pretty much the same....I was wrong - it's SOOOO much harder! This is my first completed embroidered item and I am SOOOO proud of it! I used the pattern from Stitcher's Revolution called Rock - n - Roll. I didn't like the size, so I resized it via a scanner and then traced it onto my handkerchief. I knew I wanted to be more fancy than just doing the outline....so this is what i came up with. It took FOREVER! but when all is said and done, I like how the shading turned out and even though the red metallic thread was a pain, I think it adds a nice touch.


2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Zombie Chicken for Easter on: July 02, 2012 09:58:55 AM


Using this pattern http://irkachan.blogspot.com/2009/05/que-fue-primero.html (scroll down for English), I created zombie chicken. Although the plan was to create a whole army of them, I only made one and it ended up in a friend's son's Easter Basket. You can see the brains in the head, the bones showing through the wing, and the insides oozing out the side....The son LOVED him!

3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Personalized Amigurimi on: June 27, 2012 07:22:22 PM
My boyfriends favorite bartender is very memorable, from his crazy red/orange hair to his tattoos, and one day , for no apparent reason, I decided to crochet him a "mini me". I love how he turned out! I used embroidery thread to do his tattoos (not all of them, just enough to personalize it). The basic shape is from "creepy crochet", and i just altered as necessary. Frankly they were both a little weirded out by the present, but they both agree it was AWESOME! My boyfriend is demanding one now....
