1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: The Hobbit: Thror's Map on: July 04, 2012 05:38:25 PM
Thanks everyone!


So awesome! Now I'm inspired to make something similar for a friend of mine, who's a big fantasy fan and who also loves maps.


Awesome! Word of advice...be careful when researching this particular maps images. The initial image I transfered to the fabric had all the words in elvish. When I took out my book to reference they had words in "the common tongue  Wink" which was what I had in mind. Had to do a bit of tweaking to make some things fit. I'm sure they both were true, but my personal preference was for the one I had grown up with in my personal copy.

Good Luck and now I think I'm addicted to the fantasy maps.
One in each room of the house isn't weird, right?

Not weird at all!

Ha, this friend that I have in mind once wrote poetry in Sindarin. If the map was in Elvish, she'd probably be even happier! *puts on her nerd hat*

That looks great! Is there a pattern for this, perhaps? I know somebody who would adore this as a gift!

Holy crap, they are just incredible! If they wouldn't scare the bajeezus out of me every time I saw them, I'd want to hang them on my living room wall!

Love it!

And wow, that reminds me that I haven't seen that movie in years. It used to be one of my favourite Disney movies.

Thank you! Smiley

I'd been wanting to try sashiko embroidery for a while, and so I ended up buying a kit from Sake Puppets. The other day, I sucked up my courage and started embroidering my first sashiko coaster project.



It didn't turn out too badly. My stitches aren't quite even in some places, and I really need to work on the intersections of the lines, but for a first attempt, I think it turned out pretty well.

More pictures on my blog, if anyone's interested.

It's a shame I can't afford to pay for shipping at the moment. I've been wanting to get my hands on some t-shirts so that I can turn them into bags! I hope you can find a taker for them!

If you paint or otherwise decorate them, they'd be great as little gift/trinket boxes for holidays and birthdays!

You can cut sections of the leg and sew them into drawstring pouches.

I also had a friend once who took a whole bunch of worn-out jeans, cut squares from them, and sewed the squares up into a beautiful heavy-duty picnic blanket. If you have multiple pairs of jeans that can't be worn anymore, that might be a good project to tackle!
10  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: TONS of old magazines on: July 02, 2012 07:06:26 AM
I also have a large number of old magazines, and I've been slowly working my way through turned them into something better. The paper is great practice for origami, I've found. I've also been cutting the pages into strips and rolling them up to make paper beads for bracelets and necklaces, which look so amazing when they're finished.

I also cut them into straight strips and weave them together to make coasters, placemats, or a bunch of placemats put together to become a box. Slowly but surely, I'm turning those old magazines into some really nifty things! Hope I gave you a little inspiration. Smiley
