1  Angry Bird Cupcakes in Dessert by ladysarahjane on: June 03, 2011 02:50:42 PM

Today is my husband's 26th birthday and every year I make him something.  Last year it was gigantic X-box pillows, that he loved so I knew I had to top last year.  However, he's such a difficult man to make things for (he doesn't think he is.  If only he knew the HOURS of thought and internet searching that goes into his gifts...)

Like 2/3 of America he's obcessed with Angry Birds and I stumbled across this blog (http://thecraftingchicks.com/2011/03/angry-birds-cupcakes.html) in my many hours of searching and thought that this lady was a GENIUS.  I couldn't find the right kind of sprinkles and I dyed 'em too dark but considering the fact that I've never tried anything of this scale before, I'm pretty darn pleased.  (And so is my husband).

I spent about $40 on supplies (since I didn't have anything except the cupcake pans) and 2.5 hours in the kitchen.  I have LOTS of leftover candy and so I probably make a few more batches in the next few weeks to use up the candy.

The whole army:

Up close and personal with those bad, bad pigs.  (The buck tooth ones are my fav):


A Sampling of Each:

Sorry about the poor quality of the photos but my camera is busted and his is dead, so I had to take them with my cell phone.  Let me know what you think!  Smiley

2  Anakin Skwaylker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Bail Organa in Needlework: Completed Projects by ladysarahjane on: May 08, 2011 10:49:24 AM
Teaser Photo:

Previously I had posted several Star Wars Cross Stitches that I had completed (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=364189.0)that consisted of two difference Princess Leias, two different Queen Amidalas, a Luke Skywalker, and a Han Solo.

Well I've been at it again!  This time I've completed 1 Anakin Skywalker, 1 Obi-Wan Kenobi (padawan), and 1 Senator Bail Organa. 

Bail Organa in all his glory

Bail Organa framed in a 4x6 picture frame.

Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi

Padawan Obi-Wan Kenboi framed in a 4x6 wodden frame.

Padawan Anakin Skywalker

All of my boys...

Pictured with Luke Skywalker...

The picture frames were purchased at IKEA at 3 for $1.50 and then I stained the wood myself.  I created the patterns myself using KG-Chart software.

Keep your eyes posted in the next few days for a Boba Fett (he's driving me crazy!) and Luke Skywalker in his farmboy outfit.

Thanks and I hope you enjoyed looking at my Star Wars cross stitch!

On a side note the two wooden frames were stained and polished by me.  They are 4x6 frames.

5  Would these sell? in Get Product and Website Opinions by ladysarahjane on: April 16, 2010 10:53:11 PM
Okay... so I need to take better pictures, that I already know.  I design cross stitch patterns and for years have more or less kept them to myself.  My fiance is convinced I could sell these patterns but I'm not entirely sure.

These are from Star Wars: Queen Amidala, Han Solo, and Princess Leia.  I'm thinking of selling these in PDF format for $1 or $2 (to cover paypal and etsy costs)

Most of the patterns would be in the style and format above.  Some others will be in this format:

These would be put into various sets by fandom and sold depending on how many patterns were in a set.

Anyway, what I would like to know is - before I put a TON of work into this - is would these patterns sell?

6  The Hero of Canton... the man they call Jayne! in Needlework: Completed Projects by ladysarahjane on: March 12, 2010 02:43:16 PM
I love Firefly.  It was one of the best shows on TV that was never given a chance.  Janynestown was my absolute favorite episode, so I just had to stitch this:

And a close up of Jayne:

This only took about an hour!

7  Save the Date Magnets in Weddings and Bridal Showers by ladysarahjane on: March 12, 2010 02:37:41 PM
My fiance and I are getting married this fall (11-01-2010 - two years from the day we met).  I've always wanted to get married in Vegas (that's where my parents - who are still happily married-  25 years later got married).  We went there over Valentine's Day weekend and I just knew that Vegas was the place for us to get married!  Smiley

Since we're on a tight budget (he's military and I'm a teacher, 'nuff said) we're doing it almost 100% ourselves.  From the invites to the center pieces to my dress!

Anyway, point:  The first thing I did was create these in Microsoft Word (nearly a month ago) after being inspired by some stickers I saw on the 'net (I don't remember where, I have seen about a thousand wedding vendor sites by now).  The stickers were $15/dozen which I thought was dumb considering that it could easily be done. 

Then I printed them on cardstock (the stuff from Wal-Mart) and it came out pretty sturdy.  My fiance and I cut them out (which, honestly, was the hardest part) and I cut out some magnet strips and stuck them to the back.  I had thought of buying those nice magnet sheets from Avery but it would have taken a project that I didn't spend any money on (I already had the cardstock, ink, and magnets) to a thirty dollar projects.  These turned out great (I think!)

Let me know what you think!

8  Xbox cross stitch gift in Needlework: Completed Projects by ladysarahjane on: February 07, 2010 10:07:48 AM

I got this pattern from domesticscientist over at http://www.spritestitch.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=112&sid=6c3a17778d8cae389ac28f27d7af774a.  My fiance is a huge fan of his xbox.  I still need to iron it and frame it.  It'll fit into an 8x10 mat and an 11x14 frame.  He caught me working on it so the surprise was gone, but he loves it all the same!

9  I love you more than Mario in Needlework: Completed Projects by ladysarahjane on: February 04, 2010 08:29:54 PM
I made this for my fiancé, who while he loves the fact that he's found a girl who loves video games, sometimes worries that I love Mario more than him.  This only took about half a day to do.  Its a 5x7 that I matted with a blue mat and framed in an 8x10 red frame (his favorite colors are red and blue).  Oh!  And this was inspired by a cross stitch I've seen that said "I love you more than Star Wars."  (I forgot where I saw it at).

And a close up:

Sorry about the glare, I forgot to take a picture before I framed it and it took me so long to center it that I'm not going to take it out.  Smiley

10  Halloween Stockings in Knitting: Completed Projects by ladysarahjane on: July 20, 2009 07:58:28 PM
I first saw a picture of knee stockings done on regular knitting needles and thought, huh I bet I can do that on a knitting loom.  So using Provo Crafts small circular loom I experimented and this is what I ended up with:

It was actually fairly simple.  I started at the cuff and knitted a flat panel all the way down to ALMOST the ankle and then began to knit in a circular pattern.  Then I ran orange ribbon from the bottom to the top and finished it off in a bow.  They are held up at the knee by the elastic I sewed in along the cuff.

I do intend to write a full fledged pattern after I work out a few small kinks and play with a few concepts I'm toying with.
