I'm glad they arrived and you liked them, n9i5a!  I haven't done much chemical structure stuff in years and years and it was fun to look it up.  Thanks for the great swap!

thanks, everyone!  i think i'll take them over to the craft store to see if some ribbons would do that last little touch i was hoping for.

and the guy half of the couple is vegan - i thought veggies were perfect for them!

I am a bit late, but these towels are for a wedding present.  I'm generally pleased with them, though I am less excited about them than when I started the project and I can't quite figure out why.  It certainly was a treat to work on real linen, though!

I tend to not cross-post things from swaps, but I just like this one so much I wanted to also post it here.  For the fancy knickers swap, I embroidered the hip bones on the back of a pair of boyshorts.  The embroidery is merely OK (I ended up having the pattern on tissue paper and tried to keep it in place while stitching through it) - it is a bit off-center and tilted and the stitching is uneven with some little gaps.

But with all that, I still really like it.  Yup.

It turns out I am extra lucky as I also received my panties from n9i5a a few days ago - also awesome!

Here is a picture of all three together - the tie-dyed ones were white when i sent them - they now also have little rhinestones on them as well.  Very fun!



Here is the back of the night-sky themed ones.  I think the swirly cloud detail is great!



And my favorite ones are the silhouets of plants - probably inspired by one of the fabrics on my wist - I love them!



Thanks so much, n9i5a!

oh, yea!  I'm so glad they made it, varandra, and that you like them!

Yup, the os coxae was a bit of a hassle - the day I went out to the craft store was apparently the day after everyone else went out and bought up all the contact paper.  I tried figuring out how to tape them to the window and trace on, but the knit was too stretchy - how did you do those illustrations?? 

I ended up putting the pattern on tissue paper and putting that over the panties and holding them both in place with the embroidery hoop.  It worked ok, but I know there are places where the stitches don't quite line up and such . . .

oh, yea, i think i have the time to join this round! 

i was thinking of offering purple peony pins.  they are hand sewn from silk scraps.  they will all be purple, but with different materials. this is my prototype, the picture is about real-life size:



i'm going to tweak it a bit so the center is a little smaller.

i was just wondering what sort of interest there is for them so i know if i should sign up for 5 or 10.

thanks!

Lucky me, I received from varandra a few days ago.  After telling her I didn't really go for girly stuff, I promptly sent her some peach/pink underwear since that was the only interesting color at the store.  Hrm.  But she did right by me and did a GREAT science-themed set for me.

First, she spraypainted some stars and then embroidered a rocket ship with some sequins in the rocket exhaust.  Awesome.


The second pair are evolution-based with the ascent/descent of man on the back.  I'm very impressed with her drawing-on-knit fabric skills as the technique I ended up using to transfer [something] to her pair drove me insane.  We can discuss that when she receives.


And the third pair are embroidered moon jellyfish.  I *love* this pair.


Thanks so much, varandra, I hope yours arrive soon!
