I have been working on this off and on forever as a gift for a friend and finally finished it! I have always been sort of amused by the stripped down nature of instructional icons and when I saw this one on the Neti Pot box, I knew it had to be crafted. I used chain stitch for most of it, except for the more detailed parts like the facial features.





Why do I suck at ironing?

You're right, it did have to be crafted!  Grin

When I saw the little icon I knew it was a neti pot and I wanted to see what was going on. It's a great design for embroidery. Nice work  Grin

Hahaha. I saw the preview on the front page and went... 'is that Neti Pot stitchery??'

Glad to see I wasn't wrong. Awesome stuff.

Thanks for the kind words! I have only used the neti pot a couple of times, but it is pretty amazing. This piece was a gift for a friend who introduced it to us by demonstrating it at a party. That's right... I go to some pretty wild parties Wink

ha ha, i love those type of drawings too! like the one of a baby throwing a blow dryer into a tub or the toaster perched precariously  above a sink of water- line through them of course, since these are situations we're being instructed to avoid. hilarious, keep up the good work!

My boyfriend had surgery for his deviated septum last Friday and has been neti-potting all week (yes, it's a verb now).  I love this.  I'll have to send it to him since he's been The Most Miserable Man in the World all week.

Hahahaha... you know about my try with the Neti Pot recently and I thought that picture was soooo stupid.  I am so glad you embroidered it!

When I saw this, I said to Alex, "Oh my god, someone embroidered the Neti Pot thing... hahahaha..." and then clicked on it, and then I said, "Oh my god, it was Autumn..." 

Ha!  This rocks.  Amazing.  Looks fantastic.  Cheesy

I have never heard of a Neti Pot. I am kind of disturbed but really intrigued. Your embroidery, however, is not disturbing and is great.

A few years ago I was at a friend's house and spotted a plastic bag on the floor that had line drawings on it. I picked up the bag and realized that it was a series (not just one, but a full SERIES) of technical illustrations of how to put on a pair of socks. He let me keep the bag (he thought I was crazy) but I've never done anything with the pictures. (I know, I'm a pack-rat. Who keeps a plastic bag for years?)

But now I know what I'm going to do with them! Get out the Embroidery Needle! Because otherwise the world will forget how to put on a pair of socks!

Awesome! Please do share those when they're done! Cheesy

And I just always wonder... who is the person whose job it is to draw those icons? It seems like there is one for everything. Craziness.

I thought the exact same thing!!! I called my husband in from the other room to see what he thought when he saw the thumbnail and he thought that it was naughty too. We laughed a lot. It's not so naughty when you actually see it in the thread though.

This is fantastic!  I got netipots for everyone in my family.  I had to convince them that it is only gross when someone else is doing it.  When you do it to yourself, it's totally normal.  I wanted to make us each our own tericloth storage bags for our netipots, but now I see that I'll want to embroider a label for the bags like you did.  Great job!

This is so cool!  It reminds me of George on Six Feet Under, that eccentric man of neti pots.  Personally, I couldn't stand to use a neti pot, but I love your instructo-gram!

With regards to the ironing, it really helps to use a) more steam or b) a spritz bottle.  I had never used a spritz bottle or mister before I broke the steam button on my iron (long apartment relocation story), but I swear it will take out creases where just the steam from your iron won't.  I'm not saying you suck at ironing!!! Far from it.  You just may not have been introduced to easier methods.

Keep up the great work and continue to take stitching inspiration from pictograms.  I'll never look at one the same way again!

I love pictograms!  They convey so much in so little space and often it's even helpful!  Yours is wonderful!  I've been saving an instruction sheet for another item hoping to embroider it someday and your post may have inspired me over the edge.  I often photograph pictograms when lucky enough to traveling in foreign countries and doing them in embroidery may be an awesome way to commemorate my trips!

Get out of town--that's awesome! ::happy dance::

sanourra - Thanks for the ironing tips... I do actually suck at ironing, but I think it's because I'm just impatient. I'll take your advice in mind, but then maybe also add in a pre-iron massage. Wink

MistressT - You have to stitch some pictograms from other countries! That would be so incredibly cool.

You probably need a better iron.  It should be easy and quick.  I got a Rowenta and thought I'd died and gone to housekeeping heaven. My mother-in-law visited, used my iron and promptly went home to replace hers.  I only iron fabrics, table linens, and crafts, I rarely iron anyone's clothes...  Wink

That is hillariously awesome. It's a really cool idea to embroider instructional pictures.

Also, if you hate/suck at ironing it may be worth it to get a hand held steamer. I looooooove steamers, they're so easy.
