Awesome hat!! I have a request in for one as well. Wink Would have been much cooler if I could have made my own.

Last night was mandala night in my house...I'm working on a stamp and kiddo is working on a piece for an upcoming art show.

I am loving the pies....I can definitely see your tweaks to the pattern, Smeddley. Different flavors would be cool, too!

I had a much more successful pattern transfer attempt last night. I think I can tweak anything I'm not happy with when stitching.



I would like to pick up a smaller hoop and then I'll start working on it. I'm headed north for a ski trip this weekend, so I'll be sure to bring this project with me for daily crafting. Smiley I might have been bitten by the embroidery bug.

lol...no judgement. I trace off my phone for smaller things all the time.

I did print this out and then trace with a light box...it's just the lines I'm having trouble with. I can't draw, so I really need the picture to tell me which lines to transfer for my pattern, and there's just not enough definition with this, especially in the face.

Here's my second attempt...we'll see how it transfers to fabric when I get home tonight. Fingers crossed.

My crafty thing yesterday was a bit of a fail. I tried to make my own embroidery pattern...but it did not transfer very well. I'm working on version 2 today. I think I have a better picture to start with that will transfer to clean embroidery lines.

Here's my fail:



It looked ok in the pic, but when I drew it on the fabric, I wasn't happy with how it came out.

Do you guys have any tips or tricks for creating an embroidery pattern from a picture?

One of these days I'll learn how to do pretty hand lettering...

I so want to take this class to learn how to do lettering. One of these days I will do it.

I finally made valentines last night for the HPC valentine exchange. They are being mailed out today...nothing like the last minute.  Grin

I had a bit of travel for work so I missed a few days...everyone is so busy!

Oh! I have to remember to check back to people's lists for pics! And eventually update my list with my daily craftiness.

I did successfully bring embroidery with me on the plane and even managed to sneak some scissors into my carry on (rounded, under 4 inches, so technically within the rules). My bag was searched on the way there, but not the way home. AND, I was able to squeeze in some daily stitching while traveling.

Yesterday kiddo and I made a snowman, so I'm counting that as my crafty thing, even though I spent a fair amount of time embroidering as well.



And today, we made valentines! It was my first two-part stamp - start simple, right? Cheesy Kiddo carved the outline and did a lot of the stamping....I was supportive in this craft. Cheesy We stamped "I choose you" on the inside.

ooo...very intrigued by the blocks (both sets), can't wait to see what they become.

The baked goodies are perfect for winter and are making me hungry...

Here are the fruits of my (and kiddo's) tie dye labor from yesterday:



There's more, but this is sufficient to show we were crafty. Smiley

That scrap fabric rope is soooo cool. I totally want to try it.

Kiddo and I spent the day tie-dyeing yesterday. I'll unwrap most of it today, and count that as my crafty thing for the day.

This seat cover was completed yesterday, though, so I'm posting a day late for yesterday's thing!



I don't have a good before pic of the cover on the seat frame, but here's the tied cover before it went in the dye pot:



It's a kiddo-size chair, so not too crazy big. The seat was so stained the whole thing needed a face lift!

Here's today's thing:



Another inchie (stinchie) and another phone post so I apologize for the pic proportions/orientation. It's not really a sampler but I have been trying new stitches here and there. I will certainly share the whole thing when it's complete. In multiple places lol.

Love the ATCs! Will have to examine in more detail on the comp tomorrow.

Here's my thing for day 2:



Phone post so hopefully it's oriented correctly.

I'm working on a inchie sampler type piece. The corn flower square was the one I did today.
