I love him. Smiley
12  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Kaylee Firefly purse on: May 21, 2005 06:40:33 PM
I was going to post this in the purse section, but really the purse part was just a vehicle for the embroidery. Wink

I made this bag for the Joss Whedon 2 swap, and it's based on this image of Kaylee from the awesome series Firefly: http://www.fireflyfans.net/sunroomitem.asp?i=2419 -- also, "shiny", in Firefly land, means good/cool/awesome. Smiley

Anyway, here is the purse:

All the coloured shapes are appliqued onto the bag, then I embroidered over the top.  On the "shiny" side I used satin stitch, and on the other side I used split stitch to help make the embroidery resemble bamboo.
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Now I'm a Vest Dressed Girl! on: May 13, 2005 08:08:38 PM
I just finished this vest today...

It's from a 70s pattern I found in my mum's cupboard... I love it!

There's another pic of me in it and also a photo of the pattern book cover on my blog.
14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Polly Purse on: May 03, 2005 04:52:49 PM
I haven't made a purse for a while, but whipped this one up for a swap.  I sort of made the pattern up as I went along, and with a bit of tweaking, plan to sell some similar purses on my site.  What do you think?

Look, it's smiling!

This was my first time using magnetic snaps, and I love them.  They're so easy and clean looking.  It was also my first time using pre-made handles, which I also love -- these are the beadable metal handles from sarah1980, obviously not beaded...
15  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Skirting Subversity... on: April 09, 2005 01:00:59 AM
I haven't had a chance to do any crafty or arty stuff over the past few weeks, due to constantly being called into work, and this afternoon my frustration boiled over into a little embroidery down near the hem of my work skirt (with thanks to Margaret Atwood and her fake Latin from The Handmaid's Tale):




Nolite te bastardes carborundorum.  Don't let the bastards get you down.

It's black-on-black (I had to fiddle with the pics so you could read the writing in the photos), partially so it's hard to see, and partially because we have to dress completely in black where I work...
16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My cardiganised boobholder! on: February 21, 2005 04:20:38 AM
Here is my mini-cardigan. Smiley  I started out making the ever-popular boobholder, but I was trying to use up as much left-over yarn as possible.  I wanted to make my sleeves less puffy, so omitted the extra increases, then when I got to the part where you'd normally end, I just kept knitting in stockinette, added a buttonhole, and did the same number of decreases as increases to mirror the neckline shape.  Once that was done, I kept knitting until it was long enough.  I just need to block and add a button now. Smiley


Each colour has all sorts of interesting colours and speckles woven into the yarn.
17  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I Hart Wayne -- The Embroidery on: January 20, 2005 11:25:37 PM
So, as some of you may know, I've been working my butt of for a couple of months on an embroidered portrait of Jenny Hart and Wayne Coyne.  And this morning I finished her.  I'm so proud. Smiley

The whole portrait is around 21x22cm, and it's an entry for an art competition.  I need to frame it this weekend and have it into the gallery by Monday.  I worked from a photo (that I played with in Photoshop quite a bit) Jenny had taken when she worked on the Flaming Lips video Spongebob and Patrick confront the psychic wall of energy.  Hopefully I've done you justice Jenny!
18  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Hula Girl embroidery on: December 28, 2004 03:48:18 PM
I put this patch on a skirt I made for my niece.  I gave it to her at Christmas and she loves it. Cheesy  It's the Hula Girl from the Stitch-It Kit.


You can see another close-up photo and a photo of the whole skirt on my blog.
19  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Yay! Press! on: December 21, 2004 02:17:55 PM
I just wanted to post that I'm the featured artist in the latest issue of Exposiitory Magazine!  Woot!  It's very exciting. Smiley  http://www.expositorymagazine.net/2004/november/studioleonieconnellan.php
20  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Knit Your Own Rock Star on: December 06, 2004 05:51:05 AM
So, I took the pattern and mixed it up.  Shredded it to pieces.  Destroyed it.  Then I started knitting and Wayne Coyne from the Flaming Lips came floating off my needles in a bubble of joy. Smiley

I haven't decided whether or not to add some fake blood yet (anybody who's seen a Lips show will know what I'm talking about there)...

He's a Christmas gift for some unsuspecting friends, so shhhh. Smiley
