1  My first onigiri plushie! (added another) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Lilyzilla on: August 01, 2007 12:24:22 AM
Actually I think this might be my first plushie, too. Smiley

Sorry for the bad picture. I only have a scanner right now, but I'll try to get better pictures sometime soon. The face is embroidered on, and it's sewn together with embroidery thread. Made of cheap, 25 cent felt. Smiley I made the stitches and the ends visible (instead of turning it inside out) because I thought it was cuter. Cheesy It's about as big as my palm (and my hands are six inches from the top of my wrist to the tip of my middle finger).

I promise it's cuter in person! My normally sort of stoic boyfriend looked up at me, walked over to the door, shut it, came back, and then -squealed-. It was excellent. Cheesy

Thanks for looking!

EDIT: I made another one!

This is a umeboshi onigiri, or a pickled plum rice ball. The little plum is worried because he's afraid no one will see him, stuck on the rice ball's back. But we see him. Smiley

I plan to put a little spot of velcro on the back of the rice ball and the plum so he's detachable. Or should I just go ahead and put him on?

Again, thanks for looking!

3  BF's sketch into embroidery! in Needlework: Completed Projects by Lilyzilla on: July 30, 2007 09:57:49 PM
After doing my first bit of embroidery, I wanted more practice. My boyfriend drew a little dude onto the fabric and I went at it! First time doing the back stitch, but I think I did it okay. Smiley

Thanks for looking!

4  My first foray into embroidery! (anchor + kitty patterns) in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by Lilyzilla on: July 30, 2007 03:49:18 AM
I got the Stitch It Kit and my god, it's wonderful. <3 Easy to follow (plain english in a craft book? Instead of dusty, dry textbook descriptions? Astounding!), full of cute patterns, and just all around awesome. Cheesy

I tried out the anchor and the kitty.. I've only done the split stitch so far but the others don't look too hard to master. <3 I don't think it's bad at all for a beginner. The corners were hard but I found a way that works. Smiley

Thanks for looking!
