1  Home Is Where The Controller Is (Free patterns) in Needlework: Completed Projects by DomesticScientist on: March 13, 2009 09:22:04 AM
I made this cross stitch a while back, but I figured I would post it here to share with you guys! 

I was going to do some sort of fun border around it, but I ran out of patience.  I'm no good with large projects! 

I made more patterns for people that would prefer Nintendo contollers or logos.  I think I should make the NES controller soon.  You can download the other patterns here: http://www.thedomesticscientist.com/free-patterns

2  Guitar Hero Scarf in Crochet: Completed Projects by DomesticScientist on: March 13, 2009 08:33:06 AM
This is one of my favorite things I crocheted.  It's a scarf based on one of my favorite video games, Guitar Hero.  The design is taken from a riff from "Killer Queen" by Queen in one of the earlier games  I could have made it even longer to encompass more of the guitar solo, but this thing is already 6 feet long and pretty heavy.  I'll leave the epic scarves to Dr. Who and the Mario Scarf: http://themarioscarf.cassiecsmith.com/.

Here's my favorite little model showing off the scarf:

And here's the whole thing:

I kind of share the pattern?  I say kind of because I am a novice with crochet and can't read those crazy patterns to save my life.  If you want to try to read my "pattern" check it out here: http://www.thedomesticscientist.com/free-patterns/. (It's at the bottom of the page.)

3  Space Invaders Guitar Strap - First Post! in Needlework: Completed Projects by DomesticScientist on: March 11, 2009 10:42:23 AM
Hi, everyone!  I just discovered Craftster recently and I've been snooping around for a couple of weeks.  I've been very impressed with how nice everyone is here and all the awesome things people come up with!  I figured that I wanted in on this awesome community so I am adding some of the things I've done.  Here is one my favorite cross stitch projects I have done so far:

I made this guitar strap for my husband last year.  He wanted it to look retro so we went with some pretty out there colors.  I really liked the way it turned out, though!  I also made a Joust guitar strap that I will post soon, as well.

*EDIT* Thanks everyone for your kind words!!  You make a girl feel special Smiley  To answer your questions, the guitar strap was pretty hard to poke through, but not impossible.  I used a thimble and a large needle (sorry I don't remember the size).  I didn't use a cross stitch needle because it kept slipping around the fabric of the strap.  The sharper pointed needle made sure the thread went where I wanted it to.  And to how I got them pretty even was I used tear away paper (or waste cloth - not sure what they call it everywhere else).  It makes a grid on your piece and the grid can be pulled out from under the stitches when you're done.
