1  Re: Lots of Doll Clothes in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: May 28, 2015 04:06:48 PM
Featured project?  Cool!

gaudiknight- I have to admit, I didn't want to do "cute and colorful" at first because it's not really my (or my doll's) style.  But I thought I'd give it a try with different fabrics and I'm really happy with how they came out!  I did just the sundress without any leggings or arm warmers and it turned out cute, too.


As far as the other dress, it's actually a pattern for Ellowyne Wilde, but it works for slim MSD.  I didn't have enough of some of the fabrics for all 8 skirt panels.  The butterfly one only has 5 skirt panels, and the brown one has 6 or 7.  It still turns out really cute if you don't do all 8 panels, so play around with it and see what looks best.

2  Lots of Doll Clothes in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: May 26, 2015 06:10:00 PM
After sewing a billion little Monster High clothes for a craft fair, I took about 4 months off from sewing.  The other day I felt like sewing for my big dolls.  I found the patterns for free online.

Dark Alice- arm warmers, leggings, and tube top are made from jersey knit fabric.  Dress is cotton with lace trim.


Twisted set- dress is cotton with a warped checkered pattern.  Arm warmers and tube top are made out of some kind of evil stretchy fabric I found in the Halloween fabric last year.


Butterflies- cotton and ribbons.


Brown dress- also cotton and ribbons.


White dress- eyelet cotton and ribbons.


These were all a lot of fun to make.  Thanks for looking!

3  Sparkle Kitties in Needlework: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: May 07, 2015 05:10:48 PM
I found this amazing sparkly aida at Hobby Lobby and looked forever for a pattern to stitch on it.  I thought this cat one would look really pretty on it, and I was right!  I found the pattern on Etsy.  The pink thread is silk that my mom gave me forever ago, and I ran out right before I was finished!  So the pink cat's ears are a little off, but I still think it looks good.





Thanks for looking!

4  Birds, a Pinup, and Samurai Jack in Needlework: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: May 04, 2015 06:20:31 PM
I've been a cross stitching fool lately.  A lot of my projects haven't been hooped or framed yet.  I feel sad for them just sitting there.  Anyway...

Here's the bird cross stitch I just finished.  The hoop I wanted to put it in wasn't big enough so I have to find a frame.  It'll fit in an 8x10 frame.




Here's a cute pinup.  I found the pattern on Etsy.  She's not too big, she's in a 3.5"x5" frame.


And I made this pattern with my PC Stitch, but I can't take the credit for making the finished product.  This is another one of my cute crafty boyfriend's projects.


Thanks for looking!

6  Castiel and a Retro Camper in Needlework: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: April 08, 2015 07:34:18 PM
I'm addicted to Supernatural (but I'm only up to season 6 so no spoilers!).  I think Castiel is one of my favorite characters in the show.  I found this pattern on Etsy and decided I needed to make it.



And my mom likes retro campers, so I made her this hoopla for her birthday.



Both hoops were fun to make and stitched up pretty quickly.

8  Cute Skull Bracelet in Needlework: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: March 09, 2015 01:32:50 PM
I found this bracelet kit at Hobby Lobby and didn't like any of the patterns it came with so I made my own.

9  Dragon Age Inquisition Cross Stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: February 15, 2015 03:50:03 PM
I wanted a quick project in-between my large projects, so I chose the Inquisition logo from DA: Inquisition.  The original logo is white-on-black, but my bf bought this awesome silver fabric and I wanted to use it so I did black on silver.





As always, C&C welcome!

10  Fallout: New Vegas Cross Stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: February 13, 2015 06:02:09 PM
I really like Fallout.  New Vegas is super fun and I wanted to cross stitch something from the game.  I figured the New Vegas sign would be fun.  I made the pattern using PC Stitch which picks up on every little color variation and if you don't let the program use enough colors the picture isn't as clear.  So there were a lot of places where I was changing thread colors quite often (there's 53 colors in that baby), but it still stitched up in about a month.  It fits within an 8" hoop, but I'm not sure if I want to hoop it or frame it.  I also added some silver metallic thread to make it look like the lights are sparkling, but it's hard to see in the pictures.





And here's the original picture.


This was pretty easy to make, and it made me want to play New Vegas all the time.
