1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Steven Universe: Sadie Pillow Embroidery (Now with Lars) on: February 11, 2017 09:51:49 AM
I finished Lars ages ago now (and the couple is now in our "Celebrate Fandom" display case at the library where I work...sans pillows, 'cause they would've been huuuge).

I tried something a little different and managed to use the sewing machine to attach him to the fabric. Not sure which I like better. I think he "fits' better, being that he is so rectangular anyway. I think I would have ended up with a lot more white if I had cut Sadie in a square. But, as always, comments or suggestions to do better (as I am now working on seed stitching Steven's hair for my first quilt block!).

Haha, thank you all for the kind words. And yes, I am watching Barney Miller. It's my "new" favorite show from before I was born. I splurged and got myself the complete series set for a Christmas.
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Steven Universe: Sadie Pillow Embroidery on: January 04, 2017 04:17:14 PM
So, waaaaaaay back in 2010 and 2012, I made these Pokemon Quilts for myself and my BFF (and now) ex-Husband (but still friend). They are a combination of fabric paints and embroidery, due to the large spaces of color. I found that I kind of liked the texture that the dual art created.

For 2017, I decided to revisit embroidery work for another personal project in that style, but in the world of Steven Universe.

Behold: Sadie!

And she has been incorporated into a pillow, and a matching Lars is in the works. I'm not sure if I like the blanket stitching I did around her to attach her to the fabric. It feels very "Steven Does Crafts" to me, but I want to do an entire quilt in a similar style. Any tips and feedback would be appreciated!

Very cool, thanks Smiley And I'm totally not going to get it totally done in time for my April convention, but I've got my fingers crossed for the one in July Smiley

I considered doing Jane Lane too...her red shirt is probably much easier to find thriftily than Daria's green jacket!

I always hate to bump older posts --but this is super cool. I am actually trying to pull together a Daria cosplay for a couple of conventions I am going to this year. Did you use a pattern for the jacket or did you just kind of freehand it? It looks awesome!

Oh my gosh! I find these little guys endearing (although total jerks) now, but as a kid I thought they were terrifying. Great job on this! I want one!
7  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Little Fish-Shaped Ex-Soysauce Containers on: December 09, 2012 08:18:04 AM
That is flippin' adorable! What about making like...weird jewelery out of them?? Are they too big to be made into dangly-style earrings? The larger ones could be used in necklaces, maybe... Keychains? I think they're cute for their intended purpose; you could reuse them for bento boxes, or find out if a Mom or co-worker is looking for tiny condiment holders...

Thanks Smiley I just got my Thank You card from the bride and she seems quite pleased with the way it turned out.

Thanks Smiley I've got a bunch of Pokemon-loving friends that were quite jealous about it.

Thanks Smiley I've had quite a few of my Facebook friends tell me that it's a favorite; I'm pretty sure it's impossible to not like that movie. Plus, Alan-a-dale is adorable!!
