I was able to find a website that has copies of Aimee Ray's book Doodle-Stitching last week. If you are a fan of Aimee's work, or just embroidery in general I highly recommend this book. It has great instructions for beginners, with lots clear photos showing how to do a whole bunch of stitches. It's also chocked full of wonderful projects! I can't wait to get started!!! Great work Aimee Ray!!
I am trying to locate the fabric that this dress is made out of. I believe that it came in a green & black/brown? color scheme. Ideally that is what I am looking for. I am pretty sure that it is an Alexander Henry print. I have scoured the internet, with no luck. If some one out there can help me, it would make this bride-to-be very happy. I would like to make my bridesmaids' dresses out of it.
I think this will eventually become a pillow for my couch. I plan to make another to match. The owl was "borrowed" from a MaryInk T-shirt design. Not sure if I am completely done with it yet.... I still think the body is missing something. Perhaps some feathers? If anyone has some suggestions, I would love to hear them.
This was the Christmas gift I gave to my dad and my stepmom this year. I had so much fun making it, and they just LOVED it!! They love anything having to do with the ocean, and the brown/purple color combo is one of my stepmom's (aka "fairy godmother's") favorites! The moment I saw this design posted by BadBird, I knew I need to bring her to life, and then as the project evolved it just made sense to give it to two people that I knew would really appreciate it. I would love your feedback, please let me know what you think. Thanks for looking!
I am doing something fundamentally wrong each time I attempt a new intarsia project. I end up with holes in my knitting, where one color ends and the next one begins. I am pretty sure that I am doing something wrong when it comes to twisting the yarn, (if that makes any sense). How do I add colors too? I have tried pulling the yarn across, but that just ends up distorting the imagine. My next idea was just to tie the new color on to the one I was just knitting with, but I don't think that is quite right either. I have literally started the same project over again close to 10 times, and still run in to the same issues. I hope someone here can help! 11th time could be the charm!
