11  Re: Motion City Soundtrack - It Had To Be You cross stitch. in Needlework: Completed Projects by Jessii on: February 23, 2009 04:53:38 PM
It's 220 by 137 stitches.

This is the video clip screen shot i used to make pattern

This is the first Motion City Soundtrack one i made

This is the one Justin asked me to make, after seeing the one above

Was funny, i was on tour with a music festival they were doing, and couldn't find Justin to give him the stitch, so i gave it to Josh, then Matt comes running up to me going "I knew you'd be here!!! You made that for Justin didn't you!! It's so detailed you've improved so much... have you seen our new video.... i reckon the couple sitting on the couch would make for good cross stitch."

"Do you want me to make one for you?"

"Would you??"

Heh cute. Also, being recognised by cross stitch.. incredibly lame or awesome? haha

12  Motion City Soundtrack - It Had To Be You cross stitch. MET THE BAND!! in Needlework: Completed Projects by Jessii on: February 21, 2009 08:18:15 PM
Met them last night. Walked backstage, and Matt came running up saying "WHERE IS IT WHERE IS IT SHOW!!!"


Original post..
Several years ago i made a cross stitch of a cartoon drawing of the band Motion City Soundtrack to get autographed, after seeing it, the singer Justin asked me to make one of the anime show Cowboy Bebop for him, and after the bassist Matt saw that, he asked me to make this for him, it's a screen shot from their video clip It Had To Be You, and has taken just over a year to make. Has over 60000 stitches!

I'll post the other ones i mentioned if anyone wants to see. I'm very much looking forward to Matts reaction when i give it to him!

Well i got 2 emails from Matt today. First one: "Holy crap! I can't believe you did it! 472 hours?! That's unbelieveable. Seriously. It's perfect. It looks like a photo." And 2nd "I blogged about it. Check our site!" so i looked at there site and found this: "asked our friend Jessii in Australia last year if she could do a cross stitch of the It Had To Be You characters. She said yes. Little did I know it would take 472 hours and over 40,000 stitches. Well, here it is. Pretty amazing work.."

14  50s style polka dot skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Jessii on: November 24, 2008 12:34:20 AM
This is the first item of clothing i've made, and my first post on here that wasn't in the needlework section. After doing cross stitch for 12 years i decided i wanted to learn to make my own clothes. I did a course at tafe which was humilating, due to the teacher asking if i have a learning disabilty. So i asked a friends mum to teach me, and i made this after three, 2 hour lessons, where as 6 weeks of tafe i didn't manage to finish anything.

Since it's a skirt you don't need to see all my face haha

I used a burda pattern, and i'm gonna make the same one in just plain black fabric.

Thanks for looking!

15  The Matches (broken photo links fixed) in Needlework: Completed Projects by Jessii on: June 21, 2008 05:50:09 AM

This cross stitch took me 6 months to make, and was the 2nd attempt. Originally i had done it in 30 different shades of grey, was nearly finished, then fell asleep next to it and rolled onto it, and my purple hair completely wrecked it. I cried.

I showed it to them when i had just finished the outline and they liked it Smiley Shawn laughed at me, because he tried to pick it up and i screamed "DONT TOUCH IT!!" because they had just finished playing and he was all sweaty, and i didn't want to have to start again for a 3rd time!

This is the original drawing, it was drawn by the bassist Justin.

you are incredibly talented. not to mention patient.  Wink

For 5 yrs i only worked 2 hours a day, and i'm currently unemployed, so i have plenty of time on my hands! If i worked full time i doubt i would get it all done!

Currently working on one of the band The Matches:

I never want to use the colours in the ocean again. The ocean took over a month to colour in!
