62  Pin up themed tea towels in Needlework: Completed Projects by fiberartsy on: October 11, 2008 03:49:42 PM
I stitched these up for zombiekilla for the Tea Towel Swap.  I chose a general theme of pin-ups but then altered them suit her other interests. 
Tattoo pin-up based on a design from her wists.  I added the roses and skulls to the central figure. 

A zombie/horror pinup.  I wanted to do a scary but sexy girl.  I found the image online and added the skull and a phrase from her myspace page, that turned out to be one her her favorite song lyrics. 

Chunky girl pinup based on her support of the fat acceptance movement.  Fat girls are sexy too!  The flowers, banner and leaves are Sublime patterns.

 I really wanted to keep these for myself.  I worked very hard on them and just love how they turned.  Thanks as always for looking!!

I received awesome towels from zombiekilla!  She's did some awesome, small stitches in great colors and just realy hit my tastes right on the head!! 
THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cheesy Cheesy Grin  This swap was a blast!

They were all done on the real vintage-y towels with a red stripe that you can see a little in the pic that totally match my kitchen.  She did a bird theme and all the designs are so unique.  Here's a bird with flowers in its beak.

A bit closer pic of the stitching and wonderful colors. 

Bird with the cutest little red balloon. 

And this guys checking himself out in the mirror!  How cute.

Thanks again zombiekilla!  I absolutely love my towels!

64  punch needle flowers in Needlework: Completed Projects by fiberartsy on: August 31, 2008 01:49:56 PM
I bought this design kit on sale for a couple bucks.  They're usually so expensive so I buy them when I find a cheap one. LOL!  I really like punch needle (it just uses a lot of thread)because of the raised effect.   I think I will frame this and give it to my sister.  Thanks as always for looking.

65  Kermit The Frog pillow and Grover door hanger in Needlework: Completed Projects by fiberartsy on: August 31, 2008 01:45:55 PM
I made these for the Jim Henson Swap.  I got the Kermit image from a pin design that I just blew up to size and the Grover image from a coloring book image.  The Grover is actually double sided but I couldn't find that pic.  It just a smaller Grover with the word Far.  I can't decide which one I like the best but they were fun to stitch.  Thanks!

The back--I found this great Kermit fabric!!


Grover Near/Far door hanger.  I love his expression. 

The overall hanger.  Again there is the other side with "Far"

66  RHPS lips punch needle patch in Needlework: Completed Projects by fiberartsy on: August 30, 2008 01:15:04 PM
So I made this little patch for the Rocky Horror Picture Show Swap.  I punch needled the lip design and then sewed it to felt just to make it a bit sturdier.  This is my second punch needle and I really like doing it.  I tried to get some depth and highlight with different shades of red but don't know how successful it was.  But overall, I was pleased with it!

(Sorry it's a bit blurred--it ended up being the only picture I took of it)

67  Emily Martin's "Black Apple" houses in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by fiberartsy on: August 24, 2008 10:00:18 AM
I stitched this up on a flour sack towel for a friend's house warming gift.  I had just got the Emily Martin pattern the day before and the little house patterns seemed so appropriate (plus they're totally cute).  Then I added a tree that was on a Clover pattern that I got from Joanns a while back.  It has 4 birds that represent the family members--mom, dad and 2 little girls. I think it added a little personal touch. I hope she likes it!

A blurry close up (man my camera blows!) but shows the cute little birds in the tree.

68  birdie shirt in Needlework: Completed Projects by fiberartsy on: August 24, 2008 09:52:17 AM
I got his shirt at Target and wanted to add a little something to it.  It was a little difficult to stitch over the red part as it was painted so it left little white bits but I'm pleased with the result.  The pattern is Aunt Martha's.  Thanks for looking!

I got two words for you----Trisha2010 rocks!!!!  Prepare for pic overload!!  I finally picked my package up at the post office and immediately saw this:
I giggled out of the PO.  But what was inside blew my mind!  The loot!

Loads of jewelry all wonderfully packaged!  RHPS pin, necklace with the shrinky lips, blue bead bracelets, Frank's pearls and  skeleton bird from my wists!  So excited!

Awesome cuffs--one beaded with polymer clay lips and Rocky one with rolled paper beads.  I LOVE THEM! (sorry for the awful pic--Triaha2010 if you have better ones feel free to post them!)

Letter "c" wall letter, nail file and  the most awesome Frank paddle ball.  (I sadly realized also that I suck at paddle balling)
Back of paddle that rocks with one of my favorite quotes

"Make you a Man in a Tin"--I just laughed when I opened this.  It's got little body parts to create my own Rocky and little outfits.  Just awesome.

knit socks a la Magenta and a Magenta finger puppet (THAT I LOVE!)  (and check out that awesome drawing!!
(action shot)

Action shots of bracelets

Another shot of the jewelry
And yes I'm just going to wear everything!!

Trisha2010 thanks so much for everything.  I truly love it all.  I would never have thought this was your first swap!  Your future partners will be so lucky!  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

70  Judy Blume and Beverly Cleary--Super Women of fiction!! in CHALLENGE 29 ENTRIES by fiberartsy on: July 05, 2008 02:25:08 PM
Whew!  I finally finished this!  Better late then never!  I was really wanting to do this challenge and only thought of my childhood heroes three days ago because I just had a hard time thinking of someone--and then it hit me!  I was a total bookworm as a kid and some of the best books I've ever read (even as an adult) are books by these two extraordinary women--Superfudge, Ramona Quimby Age 6, Dr Mr Henshaw, Tale of the Fourth Grade Nothing, Ramona and Beezus, Hanry and Ribsy, Are you There God, It's Me Margaret, Iggie's House, Freckle Juice and so many more.  I love them so and have read and reread them so many times and still do!!  So I began drawing out an image.  I wanted to represent them as superheores.  I gave them superhero outfits and fierce stares.  Also Judy holds a mighty magical pencil!  I had an absolute blast creating this and am so please with how it turned out.  So for this challenge I present to you the Super Women of fiction:  Beverly Cleary and Judy Blume!! 

Finished image.  (please pardon any wrinkles as I've had to add the border on by hand because I'm out of town with no sewing machine!)

A bit closer of the design

Super Cleary and Blume!
