21  damask napkins embroidered! in Needlework: Completed Projects by piaochong on: February 18, 2008 08:25:57 PM
One of my close friends is getting married at the end of next month, shehas been dating her fiance for nearly 4 years, and we all were close friends in high school. She is not a traditional kind of girl, she likes to write stories and is exceptional at singing and acting. ever since i have known her, she has always drawn this star emblem with arrows pointing towards the center, she even got it tattooed on her back. so when it came to finding a good present for her 'kitchen tea' i chose to buy her some napkins and embroider her symbol on them.

all in all there are six napkins. i will be sending them off in a package to her as well as this item
hope she likes them!

22  liitle felt wallet thingy! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by piaochong on: February 18, 2008 07:33:15 PM
a few weeks ago, one of my friends let me borrow the last harry potter book because i hadnt read it yet, and she said i had to *sigh* it was so so good! anyway, i finished it in record time and have been hanging onto it for a really long time. so as a thank you for letting me borrow it for so long i made her a little felt purse/pocket thing. its big enough to fit a DS lite, but that wasnt its original purpose.

i used a vintage military button i found in my stash (and i want to make a copy of it in resin one day) as well as using some red ribbon to tie it up. i embroidered her own symbol that she loves to draw on it, as well as her name.

the inside is lined with one of the millions of vintage floral fabrics my grandma gave me from when she used to own an curtain and cushion making shop back in the 50s

anyway, i am very proud of this, as its all hand sewn (i dont own a sewing machine yet  Cry )
tell me what you think. i am very proud of it personally!

23  green wool+ elastic= new zombie dread falls! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by piaochong on: February 18, 2008 06:47:30 PM
well after viewing all of the lovely tutorials on how to make dread falls from using wool (eg: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=149453.0 )
i decided to try and make my own!
i couldnt find colinette point five in the craft stores around town, but i did manage to find something similar at spotlight called sorbet melange... or something.
any way onto the pics!

here they are out.  as you can see, i had to use a head band to tie them to instead of the clips suggested by rock _goddess because i could not find the clips needed.

action mirror shot

and a myspace type side shot!(with flash so it hides my freckles  Grin)

anyway, comments and critique are always welcome, and any advice as to how to fill out the back a bit more would be good! Smiley

Take a stitch:

[img width=446 height=30]https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/Untitled11.jpg[/ig]

Then go back under and go through the middle of the stitch you just made:

[img width=446 height=40]https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/Untitled23.jpg[/ig]

Then you continue by making a stitch with the thread:

[img width=478 height=64]https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/Untitled31.jpg[/ig]

Continue as shown above
I hope you get it. it is easier if there is someone showing you  Grin
