Thats so pretty! I never thought about making present tops with fabric, I've always used magazines and stuff.

Thanks!  I tend to go for the fabric for some reason... at least the 2 times I've made something for this purpose.   Wink

I've used buttons for flower centers, but never thought about french knots.  This turned out very pretty, it looks like little individual seeds in the center.  Like the color and the frayed effect, too.

When I started this last-minute endeavor it was going to be a felt daisy with a button center, but it ended up this way instead.

That's beautiful!  It would make a great headband!

Thank you!  I used a paper clip run through the threads in the back and I bet a bobby pin would work, too.  It's with the gift recipient now and she can do whatever she wants with it!

So many evil french knots, making me dizzy.....

Yeah, I'm not convinced I'm a devoted fan.  I LOVE how they look and I can finally do them most of the time, but they certainly aren't even and I can't watch TV while doing them, that's for sure.

'Manbroiderer' is my new favourite word ever.

I am typing this from my bed, where it is warm and cosy, and kind of wishing now that I could hop out, put my slippers on and show up on kittykill's doorstep asking for breakfast!

"Hello, Police?  The disheveled Slipper Posse is on my front porch again.  They won't leave!"

Love this!  The idea, the execution, everything

Thank you!  I am scheduled to give it to her tomorrow!

I went to put this in the Occasions and Holidays section, but since it's to decorate a birthday gift package there wasn't a correct section.  This is the second time I've crafted something to decorate a present with and couldn't put it under Occasions and Holidays. Slow on the uptake, I guess.  I don't feel like it really belongs in Needlework, but that's what I came up with.



So it's several layers of white muslin circles with scalloped edges and a bunch of French knots holding it together. I used 6 strands of floss to make them plump and nubbly.

Ack!  I've been hording some screen and trying to find the right frame/stretcher for a few weeks!  You beat me too it!

Ooooooohhhhhh!  I should probably see that movie again... it seems to have a lot of lines that would be good for embroidery.

That just makes me smile!  You've done your usual awesome job on the tinting and stitching and she just seems to be taking herself so seriously... sitting on a stump in the woods in fancy outfit with coordinating hat!  Teehee!

How much do we love The Mistress T?
Let me count the ways...
1) A lot.
2) Even more.
3) Even more than that!

The combination of superb execution and lovely sentiment make this a deserved winner.
And the fact that she name-checked me as well...?  Grin

She's a flippin' superstar!

Please note that by saying "fine folks at..." I included the lovely and talented (and hilarious) beefranck in my statement.  Behind every manbroiderer is a women with pins as sharp as her wit. 

This is so wonderful, Tara. Smiley

Thanks, Bee!

love it

There's no love like craftster love!

Sweet,T!
and FYI: "I'm picking out a thermos....for youuuuu!"  Kiss

Thanks!  Maybe it's the neck pain, but I don't know what that means!   Grin Tongue

Congratulations!  Amazing work!

Thank you, thank you!

Hysterical and well-stitched!  So creative and cheerful! 


"...I LOVED working on this. I did it all in 3 days and actually stayed home on New Years Eve because I just felt so cozy and happy creating a dildo while I watched TV."

They don't call it "rabbit habit" for nothing!  Anyone else, remember the episode of SITC wherein Charlotte gets addicted?

That woman is full of great lines!  This should be added to the Laws of Thermodynamics.

Wowzers!  What a great take on the embroidered tea towel!  Bigfoot is one of my favorites and you really did him justice.  It's hard to go wrong with cryptozoology, but you really went right.
