1  My first grown-up polymer clay project in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by MarieAntoinette on: June 24, 2009 12:18:28 PM
I used to play around with Fimo clay as a kid and when I saw all the cool stuff people were doing here, I decided to give it another try.  My sister's birthday was coming up and she said she didn't want anything so I decided to surprise her with homemade jewelry.

Here they are, in Sculpey :

A little cupcake necklace (about the size of a sugar cube)

Little donut earrings (smaller than a dime)

I'm not sure I like these, I found that Sculpey got really soft after a while and working on such small objects was rather hard.  You can see my finger prints on the donuts too (ugly!) but they don't really show when she's wearing them.  And since my sister was very happy (she actually thought they were store-bought... Wink ) I guess they're fine for a first try.

Comments and critics are welcome, thanks for taking the time to check these out!

2  Re: Cold Feet and however long it takes ya! Tutorial added! in Crochet: Completed Projects by MarieAntoinette on: April 11, 2009 09:59:29 AM
Made my own version too!  I'm new to crocheting (this is my third project) and originally bought the yarn to make socks as an easy project, but I decided to do this instead being as cute as they are!

(My dog was sleeping, so I couldn't help taking the picture next to her!  Tongue)

Being new to crochet, I added the "total number of expected stitches after a round" (i.e. 6, 12 and 18) to the pattern to make it easier to track mistakes as I went along...  (Note that I only did this after realizing that somewhere along the way I had increased too much and the slipper was growing out of proportion...)   Wink

I think they turned out pretty cute!  If you're new to crochet, this is truly super easy.

3  Final Fantasy Terra Crossstitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by MarieAntoinette on: April 04, 2009 12:39:41 PM
Here is another crossstitch I made from Final Fantasy :

It's stitched on a bag strap.  The material was so thick I actually broke my first needle on it!  I used waste canvas and have been asked why I didn't stitch on Aida canvas and stitched the finished design to the strap afterwards...  I think it looks better this way!   Cheesy

Here is an action shot to show you just how big (or small!) it is :

I'm probably going to stitch 1 or 2 more characters on there when I get the time.

Hope you enjoy it!

4  Mog Cross stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by MarieAntoinette on: March 16, 2009 05:50:37 PM
When I started to stitch a couple of months ago, I kept thinking it was the perfect medium for pixel art images.  Being little squares themselves, it couldn't be too hard to transform them into crossstitches.

This is the first I did.  I chose a simple character from one of my boyfriend's favorite video games, Final Fantasy VI.

Here is another view to show it's size :

It was a bit harder than I expected because the shirt I chose was a little elastic and because my waste canvas kept moving a little...  I think it turned out ok nonetheless.

Thanks for looking! Smiley

5  Chickens Crossstitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by MarieAntoinette on: March 13, 2009 06:59:14 PM
Here is a crossstitched hand towel I did for my mother...  Her kitchen is decorated with chickens and roosters so it fits nicely.

Here is a detailed view without the chicks :

I chose a pattern sheet from One Nighters called 59 chickens and created my own little scene with the chicks.  I like it, but I find the towel I found with the canvas on it is a little cheap...  My mom likes it too so I guess that's all that counts!

Thanks for taking the time to look!

6  Flounder my first crossstitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by MarieAntoinette on: March 13, 2009 06:54:22 PM
I'm a little nervous as this is my first post. Embarrassed

I taught myself crossstitch last fall as a means to relax and get my mind off work.  I thought a little manual work would be a great way to do so.

Here is my first crossstitch, from a kit I ordered online :

It isn't much but I'm rather proud of how it looks...  You don't see too many mistakes! Tongue

Thanks for looking!
