Just saw this...   I'm thinking great confetti

But I would say only for indoors use, because unlike the paper ones, these would not break down over time outdoors.

Laughing my butt off here. What, pray tell, did you make based on the shape of a stain?! I'm sooo curious!


Not sure why it's filed under Polymer Clay... it's been ages.

This is fabulous! So perfectly themed, such attention to detail, so wonderfully executed!

He's lovely; although with the sharp contrasts, he looks more like a husky than a wolf to me... but that's a minor quibble with such an amazing, detailed piece of work. Wink

So, uhm, shapes.... are we talking only traditional geometric shapes, or are 'fancier' shapes, like chevrons, fleur de lis, etc. count?

Ooohhh... love the examples you provided.  Any shape(s) are acceptable!

Would, say, the shape of a stain on my worktable be acceptable as well?

Not going that route now, but I've done that before and might end up doing something similar...

Wonderful job! Your lazy daisy stitch is great.

And I've just learned an English embroidery term. Smiley

That's really pretty, too pretty for it's intended use!

It will take some settling in, I guess; but we already have some with little monograms, so I thought this wasn't so far removed from that. Cheesy

And thank you both.
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidered handkerchief - 1800s-ish on: May 21, 2013 09:29:25 AM
I sewed up a handkerchief from a piece of cotton remnant... it seemed the right weight and weave for one. And then I added some embroidery to enter it into The Dreamstress's Historical Sew Fortnightly. It's all handsewn; it was pretty much my "take on a train" project.

Before washing, with the drawn lines still visible:

After a wash:

The pattern was really just improvised as I went... so it's slightly wobbly, but I'm quite happy with it in the end.

OK, here are the buttons on the jacket!

Thank you, everyone! I'm really happy with the result; I'm far from professional, so rest assured it can be done, with some practice and patience. Smiley

I also have to say, that hat's making me deeply envious.

Oh, right, the hat! I forgot to mention the hat: I got that from a blogging friend, Lisa. It's proved to be far more than just a schoolgirl hat!

I wish I could get a better look at the buttons that your grandfather made.

I'll take a photo once I get home from school. Smiley
