3  mini wedding sampler in Needlework: Completed Projects by maximumRABBIT on: May 17, 2010 05:55:18 AM

my best friend got married and although it was very low-key and they weren't in it for the gifts i wanted to make something personal for them

i finally mastered the elusive french knot so i had to use it on this piece!

i used a vintage embroidered doily as a base - i choose this one as it had a trio of flowers which represent the bride and groom and their little girl  Smiley - then i freehand embroidered the names and date - the heart is outlined with chain stitch and filled with french knots - you can see in the first photo that the doily had a cotton lace trimmed edge, i was going to leave this showing but it looked a bit TOO kitsch for the happy couples tastes so i tucked it in and used my backing tutoial  [url]http://maximumrabbitdesigns.blogspot.com/2010/03/how-to-frame-your-embroidery-in-hoop.html[url] using black cotton velvet and a couple of red heart buttons to give it a nice tidy finish.

4  recycled matryoshka doll pincushion in Completed Projects by maximumRABBIT on: April 29, 2010 06:33:00 AM
i'm not sure if this is right place to post this but here goes

i made a very easy 5 minute pincushion yesterday

i used - an orphaned russian doll
a scrap of fabric
some plain pins
some fancy pins
a styrofoam egg

open up your doll -cover the egg with the scrap of fabric
you want to pull the fabric tight - i used stretch velour
pin fabric to bottom of the egg - cut of excess fabric

pop the covered egg into the doll body - i didn't use glue as it was a perfect fit

load with a few pretty pins and you're done!

this was so simple but i love her!

finished and framed!

and now hanging up on the boys wall Shocked)

if i did it again i'd change a few little details,
the half cross stitch on the nose i'd just do a quarter stitch and back stitch the slope also i'd use a larger piece of aida and do more shirt and maybe jacket.

all in all i'm pleased with it but better still my boy loves it Shocked)

we are all looking forward to watching Matt Smith as the eleventh Doctor at Easter - i think even my daughter who has said she'll never watch it again without David Tennant as the Doctor!
They showed the trailer in 3D at the Alice movie it looked AMAZING.

7  the tenth doctor - gone but not forgotten! in Needlework: Completed Projects by maximumRABBIT on: March 13, 2010 01:53:44 PM
i'm still on a mad cross-stitchin' frenzy - so did this little piece for my Doctor Who crazy boy

i've worked this on really large aida - 8 hpi - i love to work on this stuff as you get a big image fast and as i'm using my own simple designs if i worked them on 14ct the designs would be tiny.

more WIP pics on my blog.
