1  Stag embroidery in Needlework: Completed Projects by Gerah on: July 10, 2009 06:14:50 AM

And one last thing I can show you Smiley

I started out doing embroidery (and getting hooked *g) with some cross stitch embroideries.
After that I wanted to learn some more techniques for doing embroidery and decided to do some "free" embroidery.

I chose a picture I liked and made a pattern from it.
I traced it on the cloth by stitching the outlining through tracing paper, then took the paper off and filled in the body and the knotwork.

At the end I made this stag and I was really happy with the result Smiley

I used satin stitch (all yellow parts), bayeux-stitch (brown) and convent-stitch (green).

And here the full story in German Wink http://betweentimes.blogr.ws/tag/hirsch/

thanks for looking,
Gerah Smiley

2  Little pouch for a friend in Needlework: Completed Projects by Gerah on: July 10, 2009 06:04:20 AM
Recently I finally finished a pouch I was making for a friend.
I started on it ages ago, but then didn't like the way the embroidery was turning out.
So I left it for a while and was thinking about how I could change it.

I was thinking of doing long and short stitch to start with and mix different coloured strands of floss to get a shading effect, but that didn't look good to me.
So I gave up on the shading and used satin stitch and now I am really happy with it.
I am going to give it to her in three weeks and I am sure she will like it.

The embroidery is the coat of arms of her family.

This is the finished embroidery:

The chains are done in chain stitch.

This is the lining of the pouch. It has a lace bottom, so to use it properly it really needed the lining.

Sorry, I don't have a proper picture of the lace part, on the photo it just won't show...

And this is the complete pouch.

The pouch itself is done in naalbinding.

Again, if you want to read the full story in German, you can do so on my blog Smiley http://betweentimes.blogr.ws/tag/beutel/

Thanks for looking,
Gerah Smiley

3  Favour for a knight (lots of pics) in Needlework: Completed Projects by Gerah on: July 10, 2009 05:45:46 AM

my boyfriend and I do medieval re-enactment and last year I wanted to make something special for him. As he is a knight, what would be better than a favour from a lady? Wink
I made a band he could wear round his arm.

Here are some pictures how it looks when he is wearing it:

And here is one where you can see the embroidery as one before I've sewn the back on:

I am not too happy with the stag head, but I didn't redo it in the end.
The rest turned out really nice and he was very happy too.

If you understand German, you can read everything in detail on my blog here: http://betweentimes.blogr.ws/tag/gunst/.

Thanks for looking Smiley
