This is the most brilliant thing EVAR. :-D My boyfriend loves guitar hero and just asked "Could you make that to whatever song you wanted?..." Is there a pattern you'd be willing to share? I would totally understand if you wanted to keep it close to the vest. So unique and original!

You can make it to whatever song you want!  It was really hard deciding.  To make this pattern, I just found a video of someone playing this song on YouTube and wrote down the notes.  That was way easier than trying to play the song, pause it, write down 3 notes, play, then pause, and so on and so on.

I made this cross stitch a while back, but I figured I would post it here to share with you guys! 

I was going to do some sort of fun border around it, but I ran out of patience.  I'm no good with large projects! 

I made more patterns for people that would prefer Nintendo contollers or logos.  I think I should make the NES controller soon.  You can download the other patterns here: http://www.thedomesticscientist.com/free-patterns

That looks amazing and so realistic! Brilliant job! Your favorite model is absolutely adorable by the way, and just out of curiosity, was that on hard setting or expert? Keep up the great work!

It was on expert Smiley This was one of the few songs I can play at that level.
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Guitar Hero Scarf on: March 13, 2009 08:33:06 AM
This is one of my favorite things I crocheted.  It's a scarf based on one of my favorite video games, Guitar Hero.  The design is taken from a riff from "Killer Queen" by Queen in one of the earlier games  I could have made it even longer to encompass more of the guitar solo, but this thing is already 6 feet long and pretty heavy.  I'll leave the epic scarves to Dr. Who and the Mario Scarf: http://themarioscarf.cassiecsmith.com/.

Here's my favorite little model showing off the scarf:

And here's the whole thing:

I kind of share the pattern?  I say kind of because I am a novice with crochet and can't read those crazy patterns to save my life.  If you want to try to read my "pattern" check it out here: http://www.thedomesticscientist.com/free-patterns/. (It's at the bottom of the page.)
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Space Invaders Guitar Strap - First Post! on: March 11, 2009 10:42:23 AM
Hi, everyone!  I just discovered Craftster recently and I've been snooping around for a couple of weeks.  I've been very impressed with how nice everyone is here and all the awesome things people come up with!  I figured that I wanted in on this awesome community so I am adding some of the things I've done.  Here is one my favorite cross stitch projects I have done so far:

I made this guitar strap for my husband last year.  He wanted it to look retro so we went with some pretty out there colors.  I really liked the way it turned out, though!  I also made a Joust guitar strap that I will post soon, as well.

*EDIT* Thanks everyone for your kind words!!  You make a girl feel special Smiley  To answer your questions, the guitar strap was pretty hard to poke through, but not impossible.  I used a thimble and a large needle (sorry I don't remember the size).  I didn't use a cross stitch needle because it kept slipping around the fabric of the strap.  The sharper pointed needle made sure the thread went where I wanted it to.  And to how I got them pretty even was I used tear away paper (or waste cloth - not sure what they call it everywhere else).  It makes a grid on your piece and the grid can be pulled out from under the stitches when you're done.

This is one of the best pixel quilts I've seen in a long time!  When you titled it "First Quilt" did you mean first quilt posted here, or the first quilt you've made?  Because if it's the first one you've made, you're amazing!!!  Not that it's any less amazing if it's not your first quilt....  Grin

Oooh, I love the design!  I could tell it was a fire flower immediately.  Very nice, especially for just "winging" it!
