1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Mario Mushroom Coasters on: January 15, 2011 06:39:18 AM
(Please tell me if I put this in the wrong thread)

After realizing that I haven't  done any cross-stitching since kindergarten I suddenly got the urge to try it out once more. What better way to start than with the classic Mario Mushrooms? Hell, I even got Mr. Kilt to try it out, haha.

What do you think? Smiley
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Holy crap, I finished something! on: December 25, 2010 06:31:39 AM
I'm one of those people who knows nothing about knitting, but keep trying. I'm one of those people who almost finishes, but end up untangling everything and starting over. Over and Over again.
I'm one of those people who's done it for about 10 years or so.
That's why I'm utterly proud and amazed for finishing these, though simple and beginnery, awesome scarves for my nieces.

As I know nothing of changing colors I ended up cross-stitching their letters on one end. (Uneven=charming, right?)
At the other end i made secret pockets, so secret that all you see is the buttons on the photo.
Everything becomes more awesome with secret pockets, you know.

Be kind to me, this is about the best knitting I'll ever pull off.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Winterskirt/schoolgirl skirt on: November 20, 2010 03:46:36 PM
I bought these shoes the other day that goes great with skirts and realized that my mr. Kilt owns more of them than I do.  How very ungirly of me! 
So I decided to make one, just because I can.

Since the fabric is thick and soft I had to sew each fold to make it stay the way I wanted. I of course followed my tradition of screwing something up by realizing too late that sewing the bottom hem BEFORE the folds would have been smart. But hey, at least I found out I have an overlock-ish type stitch on my magic machine, haha.

Due to my weakness for tiny pretty details I ended up using hooks, eyelets and a silk-ribbon as closing, instead of a simple zipper.
I admit I was terrified making the holes for the eyelets, thinking of how much work had gone to waste if I screw it up, but I was lucky, murphy was on vacation and it all worked out fine. 

I'm super-proud and would love to hear what you think about it Smiley
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Very first machine embroidery/Diary cover on: August 12, 2010 10:00:04 AM
I have this diary that's been following me everywhere for 5 years and it's looking very sad, to say the least.
I decided to apologize for abusing it this way, so I made it a new cover. 
I also found it to be a great project to try machine embroidering for the first time ^^

Like i said, the poor thing hasn't been treated right (I'm sorry)

I used a very dark grey woolen fabric for the cover and black thread for the embroidery, giving it a discreet prettiness (It's a real word because I say so Tongue).
The picture is very grainy cause I had to tweak it in PS to show the embroidery properly.
The picture on the right is the first machine embroidery ever and is on the back, while the left picture shows the front.

I also used my fabric tags for the first time <3 I found this leather thread and some heavy iron marbles which I attached as a bookmark.
The inside rips will be fixed with some tape and maybe a band aid for love.

Be kind to your books, they're awesome.
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My very first quilt (and post) on: July 14, 2010 05:42:57 AM
This will be my very first post, so go easy on me please Smiley 

I've never made a quilt before, not even anything that could resemble a quilt, but my Mr. Kilt turned 26 today and I wanted to give him something special. Last year he lost over 40 kg (ca 88lbs) in nine months and as a result all of his clothes were way too big on him. He loved the prints on them, so whats a girl to do? 
A t-shirt quilt, of course!
I know it's been done before, but I'm so proud over myself for pulling this one off Cheesy  

Tell me what you think.Smiley
