1  Wedding Gift - my first cross stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by fire on: April 03, 2010 05:16:46 PM
My cousin got married yesterday and even though they didn't want gifts (they already have everything they need) I wanted to make them something they could hang on their wall to remember their wedding day.
I'd never done cross stitch before so thought I'd give it a go! I found a great website with a million and one old charts so I worked off those and came up with the design below.

The B and C are their initials (obv.) in a dark blue with a golden crown on top and the date of their wedding underneath, magenta loveheart and off-white/bone coloured fancy bits on the sides.

The colours aren't too good in this one but you can see the detail better.

I even mounted it (was a bit nerve-wracking to get it straight!) and we found the perfect frame for it! I was so so happy with it, I hope they liked it too!

2  first embroidery - my mother's garden in Needlework: Completed Projects by fire on: December 21, 2009 11:36:42 PM
This year for my mum's bday I surprised her with an embroidery of her front garden. I learned a lot while doing it, and am really happy with how it turned out! She is thinking of moving house or building a new house so this will be a great way to remember the house and garden.

rhododendrons, conifers, xmas lillies, among other plants I don't know the names of!

kowhai tree, hebe, poppies, roses, lavender, fern, foxglove, and blossoming plum tree

the whole thing, in a wooden frame

the photo i worked off.

3  monsters for xmas! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by fire on: December 21, 2009 11:27:22 PM
I made 2 monsters (I say monsters as they are no creature in particular) for my boyfriend's nieces. Drew the pattern up myself. Faces are made from felt. Had to handsew the leopard one as it was quite thick, but machine sewed the pink one together.

4  fabric strip knitted scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by fire on: December 21, 2009 11:24:55 PM
This is one of my mum's xmas presents this year.
I cut 3 colours of lining into strips and sewed them together lengthwise to create a ball of "yarn" and got knitting! Added a buttonhole and fancy button too Smiley

5  Aubergine Bear in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by fire on: July 08, 2009 03:24:16 AM
This cute wee guy is my third bear. He never photographs well b/c he has black glass eyes which never show up! But he is very adorable irl.

And the other 2 I've made (you may have seen them before.)

6  a manly apron in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by fire on: July 08, 2009 03:20:03 AM
I made an apron for my boyfriend (though I had to model it for the camera). I used some striped canvas as he loves bright and bold stripes on Polo shirts, so I thought he'd like this (and he did, thank god!).

I haven't used a sewing machine for an actual garment (if you'd call an apron a garment) for many years, so I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

8  Tattoo inspired needle book in Needlework: Completed Projects by fire on: June 13, 2009 11:48:20 PM
This was my first attempt at needlework. I stitched/embroidered the tattoo-inspired rose and leaves onto a felt needle book.

I'm really happy with how it turned out - much better than I expected!! Keen to do more! Smiley

9  Green Bear - 2nd teddy bear in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by fire on: May 24, 2009 03:43:42 AM
My 2nd teddy bear. He turned out pretty cute, even though his head is ENORMOUS!! He took a surprisingly short time to make, I'm about to start another one!

And here he is with his "older brother" Ralphie.

10  Covered Storage Box in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by fire on: January 05, 2009 12:02:27 AM
I got some plain cardboard boxes from the local craft store and decided to cover them with wrapping paper.

A really simple idea, but they look great!
