1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A bunch of Harry Potter scarves (photo chubby) on: August 24, 2011 11:55:30 AM
I've been making these for a while.... over the past year I've made these plus more as commissions.... I just haven't got pictures of them all.

So yeah... here they all are.

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Standard Book of Spells Grade 3 hollow book on: August 24, 2011 11:33:40 AM
I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this or not but as it was a paper box that's covered in paper.... I figured it was a good place to start.... please feel free to move it if it's not in the right place.

I made this for part of a swap and I'm dying to make one for myself but I wanted to kick myself for all the tiny painting along the spine so I may not.

I'm thinking of maybe making some up to sell but I don't know if there'd be an interest in them so any opinion on that is welcome as well as any other input. Cheesy

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / The Dark Knight, kept in stitches! on: June 03, 2011 01:47:09 PM
I have a tendency to embroider things that I don't see very often. This beauty took me about 30 hours and I loved just about every minute of it.

I'm hoping to find him a home someday.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Slytherin Year One scarf on: January 28, 2011 06:00:41 PM
I made this for Christmas for a good friend, my "brother". Since he's younger than me I made him the early scarf.

It's 7.5" by 74" (minus the fringe) Done completely in the round which is great considering how cold it's been up north. Cheesy

Wrapped twice around the dressforms "neck"

I'm working on a Gryffindor PoA one for my other "brother". I'm almost done with it, I'll post it as soon as I finish.
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Poppet for my niece (Image Obese) on: January 28, 2011 05:10:31 PM
It's bee a difficult couple of years with my family. I haven't see my niece in a couple years and after a discussion my mom she told me how much my niece missed me. So what started out as an idea to make a miniature me turned into a little Poppet who soon told me her name was Olivia.

I made her a quick mini kilt and oxford shirt (which I'm not thrilled with, but for a couple hours and no pattern I'll take it) for Christmas. Her birthday is this month so I made her some more clothes because my sister told me she's been putting her American Girl's clothes on her. Cheesy

So I made her 10 dresses from Ghilie's pattern all from "scraps" I had in my bin.

The pieces that I didn't have enough fabric to make the whole dress from I winged a crocheted top by basing it off the bodice pattern and then filling in as I needed to get the right size and shape.

The whole lot of them.

6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Cassie Hack for her Creator on: September 11, 2010 08:52:32 PM
So I have learned that I don't do any "normal" embroidery.  I had someone tell me that what I do is "metal Grandma" Cheesy

Anyway here's here story:
I'm part of an all nerd girl Podcast, and we're pretty new. So when Tim Seeley, the creator and writer of Hack/Slash, agreed to come onto our show I was kinda floored. His show was #7 for us. Since I knew I would get the chance to see him a week after our recording I thought I would make a thank you gift for him.

I was stuck in a hotel room, because we're in the middle or relocating 3 states away, so I was limited with what I could do when it struck me... embroidery.

I'd done some pieces before but never anything this detailed or this important, on this short of notice.

Well long story short I finished her in about 30 hours over 4 days, JUST in time to get her to Tim. He loves her and she's getting a new home in his studio. He said she was probably the coolest piece of fan art he'd gotten. Cheesy

So here it is (I'm not happy with her face but for 30 hours and no time to re-work, I'll take it)

And Tim Seeley with her
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Batman Comic Book Purse on: July 14, 2010 04:14:08 PM
Well I've made a couple of these before one for myself, one for a swap partner, and now I had a request for a Batman one for a friend.



None of them have ended up the same size. This one is 9 x 6.

So onto the good stuff, it's the pics everyone wants anyway. Cheesy

8  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Batman Lap Quilt on: July 09, 2010 09:26:41 AM
This one was made by my sister. She thought she'd make a Batman quilt, and what's a Batman quilt without Batman logos?

It's perfect for cuddling on the couch or nap time, 4'x4', lined with fleece... I love it, but I am a little biased since my sister made it.

Now if only I could find it a home, it doesn't exactly fit my decor, and there's no wee ones in my home to give it love. Sad
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Comic Book recon. on: September 14, 2009 05:45:08 PM
So I've done this once for a swap. I made an Iron Man clutch and I loved it so much I had a hard time giving it up. I knew I had to make one for myself. So here it is, my Emma Frost/White Queen comic book purse.

A close up of some of the "panels"

C7C welcome. I hope you like it.
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition! on: September 14, 2009 05:41:12 PM
So this is is technically my second ever embroidery project. I used mostly satin stitch, there's a split stitch in the chain and that's about it. I'm a bit proud of it, I used no pattern, just traced over the video capture from the skit.

I had a hard time finding a darker red in the right shade to do the shadows in the fabric with but otherwise I'm pretty happy with it.

I hope you like it. I decided I wanted it with me on a daily basis so I turned it into a zippered pouch and lined it with a vinyl shower curtain so I wouldn't mess up the fabric.

C&C welcome.
