1  Valentine Rabbit in Felting: Completed Projects by FairestYarrow on: February 20, 2008 06:56:10 AM
Hello!  I've just started needle felting.  I'm generally more of an embroiderer.  However, I saw the cover of a book on needle felting wee animals, and they were too cute for me to resist.  So, Mr. V. Rabbit here is my first completed needle felting project.  Smiley

There's another picture in my Craftster gallery, if you care to look.  I'll try to get my embroidery pics up there, too.
happy felting!

2  Country Cool Tea Towels! in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by FairestYarrow on: September 14, 2007 03:26:10 PM
Hey! I just finished my sister's Christmas present Smiley  These are Jenny Hart's designs from the Country Cool packet, embroidered on the white tea towels from the Sublime Stitchery website. 

I think she'll really like the cowgirl:

And I paired it with horseshoes:

I made her initials into a tattoo.  Also, I must remember not to work with the silky DMC floss, I really have trouble making it look nice.

3  Reversible Wrap Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by FairestYarrow on: August 30, 2007 04:50:50 PM
Hi!  I was inspired by Kategirl & her black half circle wrap skirt.  Erm, I'm not sure how to link her, but it's this page:

So I went and found some fun fabric & made one of my own, thanks to her tutorial!

I know the picture could be better, sorry!

4  Sweet Pea onesie in Needlework: Completed Projects by FairestYarrow on: August 30, 2007 03:55:15 PM
Hi!  I thought y'all might like to see a slightly different take on the "sweet pea" onesie.  My flowers don't look great, but then, how many people know what a sweet pea flower actually looks like? Smiley

and a more general picture:

It will be interesting to see how these stand up to the washer & dryer.  Has anyone done much laundering of their embroidery?  Any thoughts/tips?

5  Ivy Embroidered onesie in Needlework: Completed Projects by FairestYarrow on: August 24, 2007 06:53:18 AM
A friend of mine just had a baby girl, named Ivy.  I'm going to do a couple of other onesies, but this is the first one. 

I used Sublime Stitching's  (I Can't Believe It's) T-Shirt Stabilizer, adapted a painting of Ivy for the image, and free handed the lettering. 
I didn't really plan for the Y to curl up on the leaf, but I like the way it looks.

Visible are satin stitch on most of the leaves, and stem stitch on the vine and lettering. 

She'll have to grow into this one Smiley

6  T-Rex Apron! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by FairestYarrow on: August 24, 2007 06:39:30 AM
My Husand was grousing about only having one (Christmas-y) apron to wear, so I made him a T-Rex Apron!  I found the fabric at fabric.com, and the pocket is from some scrap my mom had lying around.  The T-rex on the pocket is adapted from a free coloring book picture on line. 

The Embroidery is chiefly stem stitch, with a french knot for the nose and chain stitch on the spatula handle. This is my first ever appliqu!  It was trickier than I expected.

I might go back and use a bunch of seed stitches to fill in the body of the T-rex, as I'm not sure if he shows up well. 
Oh, and sorry about the lighting!
