1  Totoro ami in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by kujikiri on: April 16, 2008 05:58:05 PM
Yeah, I finished it a couple of weeks ago, but it wasn't until now that I remembered I really should post it.  It took me a while to do, since I didn't know how to do stitching, and so left it alone for a bit, but I finally got it done.

If you look carefully, you can see just below the eyes the body kind of curves.  That was where I realised that I was supposed to crochet through both loops, and not just the back one.

2  Monster Hunter Needlepoint in Needlework: Completed Projects by kujikiri on: January 02, 2008 03:06:56 PM
Here's my second project!  This one was a present for another friend; I decided on making it for him after I bought the frame for the Megaman one, and by then I had run out of money from my X-mas budget.

It's a Gravios, a fearsome rock monster that shoots a freaking laser beam out of its mouth and farts fire and sleeping gas, for the large number of people who haven't played Monster Hunter.

I made the design myself (technically); I had this tiny image on my PSP to work with, and converted it into a pixellated image on a sheet of graph paper.  I used OneChordWonder's idea of using mosaic stitches for the pixels, and the Byzantine stitch for the background, but as you can see, I gave up on a uniform pattern fairly soon into the game.  The reason was because the character is fragmented, which results in only small parts of the Byzantine pattern being revealed, making it hard to see the zig-zags.

My friend said he liked it the way it was.  He was going to put some sort of mounting board on the back, and leave the outside edges alone.

Decided to run with Johloh's idea (I thought it would look better too, I just didn't know how to go about doing it), went to Wal-Mart, bought a 4 dollar frame and custom cut my matting.  Sorry about the lens flare, I was trying to find a decent background, and the lighting wasn't so great in the bathroom.  There is an NSFW word on the dedication at the bottom, but yeah.  You can't even see it.

4  First project - Megaman needlepoint in Needlework: Completed Projects by kujikiri on: December 13, 2007 04:58:15 PM
So, this is my first ever needlepoint creation; I made it for my friend for Christmas.  I had gotten interested in the needlepoint when my classmates did bookmarks in Grade 7.  I asked my mother for those canvas sheets, but never used them.  She just pulled them out a few weeks ago, and it gave me this idea.

Technically, it's finished; I wanted to add felt to the back and ring it with black, but I don't have the felt currently.  Also, can anyone help me with beginning and ending the stitches?  This is what the back looked like:


It was the reason for wanting to put the felt on.  It looks a right mess.

Let me know what you guys think.
