3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Eureka!!! This year, Christmas Will be Ours!!!! 12+ Foot Tall Jack and Zero on: January 30, 2012 02:15:46 PM
This is fabulous!!!  I always decorate Christmas with Halloween stuff...I have a 6 foot black Christmas tree after all.  I have always wanted to go to Disneyland to see the Haunted Mansion done up with Nightmare but we usually go to Disneyworld in the Winter so it has never worked to go to CA at the right time.

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / COFFEEEE...Yet another My Chemical Romance gift project on: September 14, 2011 05:56:38 PM
My favorite band is My Chemical Romance...if any of you have checked out my other posts this is obvious.  So they are the subject or inspiration of many of my craft projects.  When ever I go to one of their shows I make them gifts...I have made them scarves and given them to the guys on two other occasions.  So this time since the show was in the summer and I had just given them scarves in April I made them coffee cozies as they all love coffee!!!
So I made the cozies out of felt and put a logo of something each band member likes in felt and/or stiching.  I have never made a project like this before so it was a new experience.

The first photo is all 4 of them together...I used a Starbucks cardboard holder to them out of two colors of felt to layer.  Then I just googled pics of the logos I wanted...

this is the first one I did, it is the Autobots Transformers logo.  I just go for things I don't trace them or size them first I just looked at the picture and started to stitch...it didn't turn out quite as nice as I would have liked but I still like it.  It was meant for the guitarist Ray Toro.

This one is a Ghostbusters logo for Mikey Way the bassist.  I just looked at the pic and cut out the felt, stitched on the details, then fit it together and stiched it onto the cozie.

Next is the Watchmen Comedian smiley button for the lead singer Gerard Way.  Again I just cut out the circle and stiched on the detail then stitched it onto the cozie.

Last but not least is Frankenstein for Frank Iero guitarist...I cut out the general Frankenstein shape and looked at a Sublime Stitching pattern and just used it as a loose guide.  The light green stitches are done with glow in the dark thread.

After all that I just wrapped them around a Starbucks cup to measure and stiched them up the back in the contrasting color floss.

They took me the first 3 Freddy Krueger movies to finish with some messing around in between.

I went to 2 My Chemical Romance shows last week but did not get to give the cozies to them so they will be saved for the next concert.  Hope everyone enjoys seeing them, if you have any questions feel free to ask.

The dress is lovely...and I feel your pain of walking around in wet jeans.  I have learned that lesson too Wink only I learned it at DisneyWorld and Universal Studios on a few different occasions (you could say I am a slow learner).

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: 2011 My Chemical Romance Scarves on: April 29, 2011 06:24:54 PM
actually got to meet them more than once on this trip...except Ray only met him once, but I forgive him he did break his foot the first show I was at.  We met Gerard and Mikey 3 times and Frank 4 times.  It was the experience of a lifetime

Yea it does come in 2 pieces...I just used frosting and then put it in the freezer.  It stayed together pretty good for me maybe the freezing helped.  Thanks for looking Smiley
