1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Pop Art pillow on: May 04, 2008 05:37:01 PM
This is a pillow I made for a friend who is a big Roy Lichtenstein fan.



I'm pretty happy with it, but I really wished I would have lined the embroidery so you didn't see the black and white checks through it. It drives me bonkers everytime I see it. Argh.

2  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Our Lady of Guadalupe bag on: May 04, 2008 05:01:47 PM
So, I got this free bag at an early childhood education conference. Like most stuff having to do with early childhood education, it had a picture on it obviously designed by adults, but made to look like it was done by children. Here it is:



Totally lame. There's no way I'm carrying that around. So, I decide that I will cover that dumb picture up and turn a totally lame free bag into a super awesome free bag:



Our Lady is from the Dias de los Muertos pack and the candles are my own very intricate design. Here's a closeup:



Yay!
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I would go out tonight, but I haven't got a STITCH to wear: Morrissey t-shirt! on: June 13, 2007 12:28:29 PM
I had front row tickets to Morrissey a couple of weekends ago and in honor of that most righteous event, I decided I was going to embroider a shirt with his heavenly face right across my bosom. Here it is:

I transferred the pattern onto a white piece of fabric, threw some fusing on the back and then kind of appliqued that piece onto the shirt and then embroidered through both the white fabric and t shirt. I say kind of appliqued because I had absolutely no idea what I was doing and just kind of stitched the thing on. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. This is me wearing it:

I know it looks a little off-center, but a quick tug of the shirt puts him right back in the middle. It will probably not remain a t-shirt. I think I'm gonna do a little banner underneath that says "Morrissey" and then frame it and stick up on the wall, much to the chagrin of my non-Morrissey loving husband. Any other suggestions?



4  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 12 ENTRIES / The Virgin of Guadalupe -- IN PIPE CLEANERS! Blasphemy or awesomeness? on: June 02, 2006 10:57:20 AM
Ok, so this is my first challenge and I think it's pretty cool, but I made it, so what else am I going to think? Here she is in all her completed glory:



So, the items from the list that I used in creating this, um, thing are as follows:
 -- pipe cleaners (both regular AND sparkly)
 -- popsicle sticks
 -- dried pasta
along with additional crafty goods like tissue paper, glitter, sequins, decoupage, glue gun, etc. Here's a picture of some (but not all) of those items:


I should have taken some making of pictures, but I, um, didn't.

Ok, so here's the deets on what Our Lady is made of -- The Virgin is comprised mostly of pipe cleaners (she has a  popsicle stick bod, though), as is the crescent moon upon which she stands and the angel underneath. Her hair is embroidery thread and her dress and mantle are made out of tissue paper drenched in decoupage glue and then accented with sparkly pipe cleaners and glitter. Her shrine is made out of popsicle sticks:

I decoupaged the inside with tissue paper and then painted the background. The yellow parts are actually covered in glow-in-the-dark paint, so in real life it looks super-holy at night, but it didn't show up that well in a photo. Oh well. The roses that go around the opening are dried campanelle pasta, sparkly pipe cleaners and these little sequin leaf thingys I had lying around. So there you go, um,  I think that's about it. Here's some detail pics:
