21  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Fig 1. The underpants worn by the rat on: August 27, 2009 02:02:16 PM
I love, love, love Mary Roach!  This little guy appeared in the book Bonk.  I couldn't help myself, a rat in underwear!? Who could say no to that?   I might even do a series with fancy undies, cause who doesn't like fancy undies?
22  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / slighty offensive special request on: August 26, 2009 04:14:05 PM
An old coworker requested these for his house. He says they are for guests  Cheesy I used a water soluble stabilizer on them but the terry cloth was still a pain.  I hate that thread gets stuck and pulls when the needle is being pulled through to the other side.....errrr Angry  I figured the terry cloth would make the lettering look a little wonky so I just used my handwriting...and it does look wonky so I'm glad I didn't spend too much time agonizing over a pretty font.  Questions, comments, rude remarks  Wink ?

23  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / owl mania- picture chubby on: August 13, 2009 11:11:30 AM
I made this for my man for his birthday. He's a photographer and he likes owls, so I thought this would be perfect. I'm pretty sure that I got the pattern from a vintage embroidery pool on flikr... I just can't remember which one  Huh
Unfortunately, it's starting to sag in the frame since I made it back in may. I was hesitant to use something like spray adhesive because I didn't want it to discolor over time. And I didn't leave enough extra fabric on the sides to lace it up the back (measure twice, cut once. Meh, just start cutting- yeah thats me)
Anyways, just didn't want you to think I would frame and give it to him looking that crappy  Wink

For the eyes, I used glow in the dark thread from Sublime Stitching. As a photographer my DH was quick to point out the cloth over the camera should be black (ugh). I knew this, but the stripes were more fun, and they match his personality better.

Questions, comments, rude remarks?

24  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Plain is boring! (Picture Chubby) on: August 13, 2009 10:21:49 AM
For years I've decorated the light switch covers in our house.  I guess cause I see em everyday I've never thought about posting them.  Prompted by the little showcase of them last week I decided to throw em up on here.
This first one is in my bedroom. Its a picture of my man and I  Grin

In my "studio"

In the hallway. The lighting for this was terrible (since Bob's light in the hallway shines green) so this is very washed out. On the actual switch it's nearly unnoticeable.  I had a roommate for years once before she realized Bob lived on the switch.

This is much closer to how it really looks, a little hard to see.
25  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Zombie Cupcake on: August 12, 2009 08:31:29 PM
Who say all cupcakes have to be yummy looking?? When I saw the tutorial posted I remembered I'd always wanted to make these. 
I give you the Zombie Cupcake!!
Front- i think it's the eyeball that does it for me.

The back.  I originally wanted to make the cupcake part of the lime green, but since I didn't have that color felt I figured I had to get that color in there somehow, so it's guts are peeking through.

Brain Shot!

Questions, comments, rude remarks?
26  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Fly United! Tattoo inspired sculpture on: June 29, 2009 05:12:24 PM
Normally I'm over on the needlework board but I'm venturing out! This is a piece I made a while back.  It's made entirely from aluminum flashing with the exception of the two rivets that hold on the flowers.  It's based on a old Sailor Jerry tattoo.

27  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Shoes, shoes, shoes on: June 15, 2009 11:55:59 AM
I made this for Emelda Marcos, my mom.  She is a former model and fashion consultant so the woman has entirely too many shoes.  I figured I'd make her an apron so she doesn't mess up one of the ridiculously nice outfits she's dressed in when she cooks. (she's not very practical  Cheesy )  The pattern was free on Pimp Stitch.  It was my first time crayon tinting and i love how it came out.

28  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / travel themed tea towels on: June 12, 2009 07:26:12 PM

These are my favorite parts of a pair of towels I stitched up for my brother-in-law and his wife.
29  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Rasta floss?? on: May 09, 2009 12:02:21 PM
I was wondering if anyone out there has seen variegated floss that has the Rasta colors (black, yellow, red, and green).  If so, what brand and number??  I'd love to get my hands on some for a project.
