1  Re: Tea Towel Tour Gallery - As seen on TTTV in The Swap Gallery by Lilyvanilli on: October 22, 2009 10:53:47 AM
Here's my last piece which is on AlwaysInspired's towel:



It's a mandala I bought from The Floss Box. You can find other patterns here: http://www.theflossbox.com/store/embroidery

I'll let AlwaysInspired post a pic of the finished towel. It's a pretty one! Also, I received my finished towel. Here's a pic:



I had to fold it a little because apparently I sent out the largest towel ever made, but you get the idea. Thanks so much Lizards! You guys rule!

Also, AlwaysInspired asked me to post pics of her towel. I don't have my good camera with me, so please excuse the crappy cell phone pics. Here's the whole towel:



And here's Zombie_Queen's addition:

Here's my addition to sonjabegonia's John Hughes themed towel:



It's Emilio Estevez's letterman jacket patch from The Breakfast Club. Here's the image source: http://noozeez.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/Emilio-Estevez-Breakfast-Club-196x300.jpg I used 3 strands for the whole thing and used chain stitch for the circles, long and short stitch for all the filling, back stitch for outlining, and seed stitch for the white around the wrestlers. 

Here's a picture of the whole towel (folded so I could get all the designs in):

Here's a picture of what I stitched on ThirdMargaret's towel - it's a flyer for a Haunted House:



I altered the image quite a bit as far as the lettering goes, but everything else is the same just simplified. Most is done in 2 strands, but the small details are done in 1, and the red letters and moon are done in 4. Most is back stitch with some seeding, chain stitch, and stem stitch.

Here's a pic of the whole towel:

Here's my addition to Zombie_Queen's towel:



She didn't have a theme so I checked out her wists and saw some sugar skull/calavera/dia de los muertos stuff that I also have in my wists, so I went with that. I looked up calavera on wikipedia and found this image:

8  Blythe Dolls in Needlework: Completed Projects by Lilyvanilli on: May 07, 2009 09:55:39 AM
I made these for I Sew Cute, my partner in the Set of Tea Towels Swap Round 2. I used Takara Blythe names, but drew the dolls myself so they don't really look exactly like their namesakes. I took little bits from a lot of different sources and combined them all to make these patterns. I got the border and banner from Kittyzilla's Watchmen patterns on Flickr, I got the flowers inside the border on Retro Mama from one of the mandala patterns on Flossbox, the border around the 2 "Blythe" towels is from one of the Sublime Stitching books, the candy and the girly bits like the shoe and bag are from pics I found while googling.

So, let's get to the good stuff. First up we've got Dotty Dot:



Then the first of 2 Blythe towels:



Here's Retro Mama:



The second of the 2 Blythe towels:



Here's Candy Carnival:



And finally here's all 5 towels together:
