1  "Pin up girl with lipstick" - admit it, you've stitched her! (NSFW) in Needlework: Completed Projects by miche_chan on: June 24, 2008 08:36:04 PM
Some images in this thread may be NSFW due to sexual innuendo...

Aww heck, who am I kidding? I hang out on this board to check out the awesome retro video games and sexy needlework!  Grin

I've stitched her, have you?



If you have yet to meet her (I wonder what her name is?) you can download the free pattern here:

And Drewzel over on Stitchy Britches has a post on the origins of the pattern, plus the debate (and vote, if I remember correctly) on what it REALLY is that she's holding and what does the phrase on the original pattern mean:

I especially love the extra cut-outs so you can pad her butt. Awesomeness!

Please post your interpretations here!

2  Ow! My most of me! in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by miche_chan on: June 24, 2008 06:35:21 PM
So, I didn't think this one through very well. I was real excited about making a Teen Girl Squad scarf:





The problem is, the back is AWFUL:



I used tearaway stablilizer (boo!) and can't get it all off without pulling threads. Even if I could, it doesn't look very neat back there.

I was going to stitch it along the length into a tube to hide it? Is there a more clean and good-looking design sorta way to make this wearable and viewable?

BTW: The design in done on a thin white cotton jersey scarf, so it's pretty see-thru.

3  A tasty quandry... in Needlework: Completed Projects by miche_chan on: March 22, 2008 09:15:14 PM
I finally finished a schematic drawing of a single taste bud. I found the image when doing some research for a lecture last year, but I haven't got around to doing it until recently:



I'd like to attach it to my mombag in a way that looks neat and clean, like it was supposed to be there. This is the bag:

http://www.vistek.ca/store/BagsCases/220103/crumpler-luncheon-laptop-bag-olive.aspx

Great bag. Problem is, the bag has "Water resistant 1000D Nylon shell & 420D Ripstop Nylon lining"... i.e. it's pretty damn thick. Plus, how do you sew a patch on so it doesn't look so... patchy? I was thinking maybe a "frame" around the image made of bias tape?

Thoughts?

That's absolutely adorable. I love the pirate. And the flower. Is it embroidery?

Thanks! Her Uncle drew the ninja for me, I did the flower freehand. Yes, all 12 panels are embroidery, mainly split, back and stem stitches. Running stitch to sew them all together. Here are a couple of pics of some of the panels:

5  Baby's 1st dodecahedron - pics upon pics in Needlework: Completed Projects by miche_chan on: December 31, 2007 11:23:08 AM
This was one of my wee Bug's 1st Christmas presents:



The pirate side!



The ninja side!



Baby kickin' it, geometrically!

Sadly, it's not a perfect dodecahedron as the nursing pads I used weren't all the exact same size... yeah. I used nursing pads.  Grin

6  Orange you glad I didn't say banana? in Needlework: Completed Projects by miche_chan on: November 28, 2007 03:23:33 PM
This is becoming an addiction! I heart hankies...



I really don't know what's this banana's problem. Can't fruit just get along?

7  Bad milk. in Needlework: Completed Projects by miche_chan on: November 05, 2007 08:39:00 AM
My favourite hankie so far:



I collect old cookbooks, and this is an image from one of the most bizarre and politically incorrect cookbooks I've ever seen! Who knew that Cooking with Bananas could be so wrong?  This was the most hilarious and least offensive image from the book.

I would like to do it again, because I don't know how to blend colours... in the sense that I'd like Mr. Banana to be yellow with green blended in somehow. I don't know how to do that yet though... perhaps using two strands of yellow and one of green to stitch with? Thoughts?

8  Baby's Coat of Arms in Needlework: Completed Projects by miche_chan on: October 24, 2007 02:25:58 PM
Because all new babies need a coat of arms! This is the first version, based on Sublime Stitching transfers.



The clovers are her father's Irish heritage, and the "tropical birds" represent my Bajan heritage.
I'm thinking of doing a version 2.0, something a little more stylized, maybe with the rest of our lineage somehow shown...

9  Pirate Baby 1 in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by miche_chan on: October 20, 2007 03:58:32 PM
When our friends and family heard we were having a baby, the question wasn't whether it would be a boy or a girl. Rather, would the baby be a pirate or a ninja?

The verdict is still out - the various Aunty Pirates and Uncle Ninjas are trying to woo her to their respective sides with cute french pirate onesies and handknit stuffed ninjas.

Here's my first of the four pirate contributions I've made for my potential lil' swashbuckler:

10  Porno hankies (NSFW) in Needlework: Completed Projects by miche_chan on: October 20, 2007 01:32:22 PM
I have finally taken pics of my first three attempts at "porno hankies"! I only  used split stitch for all of them, as that was the stitch I was learning at the time. I'm posting only the links so as to not offend - although I know that many of you will get my sense of humour...

My next WIP is a series of three porno hankies based on the "pinup girls" patterns on needlecrafter.com. I'm subverting them a little, sorta like the recent zombie-fying of the jitterbug girl...

Thanks for looking!
