22  tiki bathroom (aka: my roommie thinks i'm crazy!) (VERY img heavy) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by LuluB on: January 17, 2006 02:02:22 PM
for many, many years i have wanted a tiki themed bathroom but i never had roommates who would indulge me in my dream until now.  my roommate, a fellow craftster, and i moved into our place in august and this has been my pet project.  i had the albums for ages (i used to collect album art and other albums are all over our place) but most of the stuff i started to acquire once i found out that my dream bathroom was to be reality.  most of the stuff came from ebay (the shower curtain, tiki mugs, small bamboo shelf, hawaii tray, and framed pictures above the small frame [i also got some great fabric with which i'll be making a toilet seat cover and adding accents to the guest towels]).  the big shelf was on sale at pottery barn teen ($30 from $90!). i made the bamboo towel hoop and the tiki towel, the trash can, and the toilet brush holder.  everything else that's tiki was given to me by family and friends (my obsession makes me easy to shop for!).  anyway, enough with the preface, here's it is!

and after!:














yea! and aloha!

thanks to a last minute decision to do my first holiday craft fair (the bust craftacular, no less), i'm just now getting all my christmas gifts out to my friends.  this is what i made for my friend, jen, who told me that want she really wanted was art for her room.   it's stitched in black on white linen, stretched, and painted with pink fabric paint thinned with water.  i got the image from a book of comics and drawings by adrian tomine, the original image was a t-shirt design for weezer.

here it is on my green wall:


and close up on the stitch work:


thanks for looking,

24  el corazon bag in Needlework: Completed Projects by LuluB on: January 09, 2006 12:31:17 PM
i stitched up this heart based on the loteria card "el corazon" a few months back as a trial piece for a bigger piece i have planed for the future but i loved how it turned out so much, that i had to do something with it.  as you can see, I appliqued it onto a piece of fabric i painted and then appliqued that to a store bought black bag (thanks to my roommie, craft addict, cindy for giving me the bag).

the bag:


and a close-up:

i stitched this portrait just for this frame i found at ikea.  not surprisingly, though pretty, the frame's a piece of crap and has already broken 3 times (shocking for something that only cost $4!).  anyway. . . here's the portrait:

27  Re: ok i want to do a portrait piece in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by LuluB on: October 15, 2005 12:16:38 PM
i do a lot of embroidered portraits and here is the method i use:

i take the image of the person i'm going to be embroidering and and trace the outlines using just plain old tracing paper.  then i do all the detail work looking at the picture i want to recreate. 

i then turn the tracing over and follow the outlines with an iron on transfer pen.

i iron the image to the fabric and then i go to town! here's a picture of my friend john i did last year:



hope this helps.

29  my friend john, his dog peanut in Needlework: Completed Projects by LuluB on: May 07, 2005 08:19:25 AM
i'd been interested in doing portraiture and using embroidery as an art medium for a while.  this is my first attempt:



it's my best friend from college and his lovely dog peanut on the day he and his boyfriend were evicted from their house, which also happened to be new year's eve.

things are going much better for him right now.
