21  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Lots of Cross Stitch Phone cases! on: February 03, 2014 08:23:00 PM
Thank you, everyone! Grin

Nice job!  I tried to do one before but it got really baggy and never relaxed to fit the phone. How did you get yours to not stretch out?

Thanks! They did stretch out some.. I couldn't really figure out a good way to avoid that. I think it's because the holes in the rubber don't go all the way through, so there's no extra room for the thread to go (like normal cross stitch fabric has). The rubber is kind of weird/difficult to work with. Basically, I just tried to be careful to not pull too tight with my stitches, because I thought pulling would stretch it out more. And I used a smaller needle than the one that came with the case, so that might have helped. I also just figured out that if you stitch with less strands of floss, it stretches out less. I did all of these with two strands, but I tried stitching with only one today and it seemed to be working better! Hope this helps at least a little. Smiley
22  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Lots of Cross Stitch Phone cases! on: February 02, 2014 11:48:17 AM
So, recently I discovered that they make these really awesome blank iphone cases. I saw one at Walmart one day and I just had to get it.

Here's the one I made for myself! (4S)

A friend on mine saw this picture and asked me to make two cases for him. One of Sonic and one of Knuckles! (these are also 4S)

In case you're wondering how I designed them.. I found a grid on the internet, but the stitch count was off by a few, so I edited it in photoshop to make it exactly the same as the case. Then I found the sonic and knuckles pixels and stretched so that they fit into the grid! Here's how they look.

After I finished those, another friend wanted mario riding yoshi. I'm done not stitching it yet, but here's the design! The whole thing wouldn't fit, but I think it looks fine (I sent it to him and he said it's fine, too!). Smiley This one is for the iphone 5.

I thought these were so cool and just wanted to share! Hope you guys like them!

I always love your embroidery! This is the cutest thing I've seen in a long time. I still have the two you made me hanging on my wall! Smiley

I love this so much that I stitched one myself! Smiley

Believe it or not, my kitty puked in the living room floor the day I finished it. Lol!

My turn! My amazing swap partner was quaggy! Aka Mistletoe Kisses. She made me sooo much awesome stuff (and sent a ton of extras)! I was completely spoiled and couldn't have imagined a better package! I said in the questionnaire that owls and forest animals were my favorites and she definitely listened. Everything is so perfect!

Here's everything all wrapped up. All of the presents have hand painted gift tags on them! And the wrapping paper is so cute.

And she also sent a bunch of extra gift tags!

They were in this bag. I love the fabric!

This tin was filled with candy and...

Two gingerbread ornaments! They're so cute and I put them on my tree right away.

Pretty owl candles.

This awesome owl mug rug!

I collect coffee mugs and I love this one so much. I've been drinking out of this nonstop since yesterday morning when I opened my package!

Tiny owl pincushion!

More owly goodness! This looks so good on my shelf with all my other decorations. I thought it was such a cute idea.

I have never seen these before and they're delicious.

And I saved my favorite thing for last, this beautiful mixed media hoop! I squealed every time I opened something, but I probably squealed loud enough to wake the dead when I saw this. I love it so much and I'm keeping it on my wall year round.

Thank you so much, Quaggy!! Like I said, you completely spoiled me and I appreciate it so much! I absolutely love everything. Merry Christmas!!! Smiley

Yay!! Smiley I'm so happy you liked everything, cloud_berry!! I would say I'll post a picture of the cowl, but I forgot to take one. I somehow took one of everything BUT the cowl. Undecided Oops..

I'm practically drooling over everything in this gallery! I love everyone's goodies. Smiley I think the tree skirt might be my favorite so far!

I opened my amazing, wonderful, perfect package from Quaggy (aka Mistletoe Kisses) today! I love everything she sent me so much and I will post pictures tomorrow morning when the lighting is better. Grin
