Thanks, those are great!

It was initially intended for use, as he is probably the only teacher in the school who uses a hankie instead of a tissue. Tongue But who knows, he could possibly lay it aside, but I'm not really sure.

I'll look up on all of this, and will absolutely post it when I'm done. Smiley

It might not be big to some, but I only started needlework about last month, so this is a big deal for me!

A couple of years ago, my English teacher made a huge impression on me, and now that I'm in my last year, I want to thank him before I never see him again. So I wanted to stitch this picture:

Onto a handkerchief. I don't think I can draw that onto the handkerchief free-hand, or ruin it with ink... How can I get this onto the handkerchief properly? Anyone able to help? Thanks!

lydia, i totally get your plight! i go through the same thing sometimes. you can make baby bibs, there are special ones made with the cross-stitch material. there is also cross-stitch material that you can, i think, iron onto other materials, and it will stick while you stitch, and then you can rip it out from under the stitches when you're done, so you can make all the examples for embroidery in cross-stitch, too.

or you can try counted cross-stitch on any old piece of material and hope it comes out right. Smiley it would probably be cool, i think i'm going to try it now.. heh.

I think the little tampon should have a surprised Shocked face!

Absolutely! That would be so cute.
These are all great, and impressive letters. Cheesy

Really cool bag though.
27  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: Which stitch should I use for this? on: June 16, 2009 04:50:19 PM
I thought the same thing, so I did use the chain stitch. Smiley I'm not really sure how to fill in large spaces like that yet, though. I was going to put a picture up though, just because it's my first finished "project." Thank you, though. I feel like I made the rught decision now. Smiley
28  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: Harley Davidson pattern...?? on: June 15, 2009 03:26:03 PM
I don't have any websites with already-made patterns, but there is a thread a little ways down where someone asked for websites to make patterns. There might be something useful in there, and if not, I suggest printing out some graphing paper and the picture you want, and winging a pattern on your own. Good luck. Smiley
29  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Which stitch should I use for this? on: June 15, 2009 02:52:42 PM
I just started doing freehand embroidery last night, and I practiced the stem stitch, daisy stitch silk stitch, and french knot. I thought I could do something little with just those stitches, but now I want to use a new one.

I am sewing a sheep into a piece of crafting felt, and I have his muzzle and ear (stem) and eye (daisy). Originally I was just going to use the stem for his body, but I wanted something different, to show the different texture in the lamb. There are SO many stitches out there that it would take me two hours to find one, so I thought I would come here and see if anyone had any favorites to offer?

I thought it was a dress at first, too! It looks great, both pictures. You can pull it off, it is really nice. Did you make your own pattern? I want to make one! Cheesy
