11  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Oh, my, god. Becky, look at her butt. on: December 12, 2007 08:06:05 AM
My 15 year old sister loooves Sir Mix-a-lots Baby got back song.  I found these shorts in a thrift store for $2 brand new.  I embroidered them for her for Christmas.

 

I hand drew the letters and embroidered them.  Some of the stitches are messy.  I guess I should really invest in some t-shirt stabilizer.  Im still happy with them.

I guess it is kind of ironic since they are a size XS.


12  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / tea cup candles- help! on: December 06, 2007 07:44:18 AM
I need help!

This is my first time making candles.  I got the idea from MarthaStewart.com.  So I went to the thrift store and bought these beautiful porcelain tea cups.  Next I went to Michaels and bought coffee scents and dye for candles.  I melted it using a candle maker someone gave me.  Anyways, only one turned out ok:



Then the other 2 I made turned out like this:



What am I doing wrong? Also, how do I get the candles out of the cups now?

14  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / SC state painting on: November 08, 2007 08:16:26 AM
This is a simple painting I did for a friend that recently moved from South Carolina to Utah.  It is of our state flag in pink and white instead of the traditional navy and white.  



And here it is hanging:



She loves all things pink and green so I really hope she like this.

Thanks for looking Smiley
15  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Russia Bag on: November 06, 2007 10:31:05 AM
This bag is for a friend that was a Russian missionary for a while and is now back in the states.  She still loves everything Russian so I made her this bag to send along in a care package.



Here is the whole bag:

16  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Ribbon Bulletin Board for a friend on: November 05, 2007 09:02:13 AM
My friend just moved back in to her parent's house and keeps complaining about how bare the walls are.  For her birthday I made her ribbon bulletin board that matches her bed spread.  I know it's been done a million times but I just really like how everything turned out.   Cheesy



Sorry about the huge crappy cell phone pic.
17  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Sublime coverup on: October 30, 2007 09:42:44 AM
Instead of throwing away stain shirts Ive decided to cover them up with embroidery.  All of my shirts apparently come with food magnets in them so lets just say that youll be seeing a lot more of cover ups.

I really wish that I had the before picture to this one.  I dropped a wonton into the grease and it splattered all over the top of my favorite shirt.  So TADAH!  Sublime patterns to the rescue!
