1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Ideas for an embroidered gift... on: October 09, 2012 03:10:30 PM
I bought a GORGEOUS pattern on Etsy and I am so excited to work on it...

But I just can't decide what to embroider.

I am making a gift for my mother who LOVES dogs. The simple thing to do is to do a hoop or a frame...BUT...

My mom is a hoarder and I just don't want to add to the clutter and confusion of her life.

I can't decide on what to do...a tote back? a t-shirt? an apron?

What are some fun and easy alternatives to hoops and frames?

Would love to hear your inspiring input.

Thank you everyone...that is my second hoop...

I tried several different stitches...the eyes are a type of embroidery stitch and I used thread painting for the body. Also, the stripes on the wings are a unique stitch I found in an embroidery encyclopedia.

I need to post pics of the gorgeous hoop I received.

Oh Wow, that owl is magnificent!

I made this for my best friend who is a DJ at a radio station staffed mostly by men...

It is from a quote from Tina Fey @ SNL...I love it! And it is SO true.

Sorry about the flash glare.  Tongue

Hi! I'm Chelsea...I'm turning the big 32 this year. I live in Anchorage, AK and work as a clinical therapist at a mental hospital for kids (I work exclusively with teen girls). I enjoy many different things: reading, playing Sims 2, crochet, scrapbooking, beading and jewelry making, cocktails, all things Firefly/Serenity, Star Trek, Dr. Who, I'm in love with the movie Inception and with the actor Tom Hardy. I also love: hedgehogs, skunks, guinea pigs, bumble bees, and kitties. My favorite colors are jewel tones and earthtones. Please nothing neon or Easter pastel. I also don't care for skulls, death themed items, religious items or thinks made of plastic kid toys.

My Wishlist:

-Kanzashi flowers hair clips like these:

-Bed Caddy:

- Something to hang on my wall to organize my necklaces in the colors of black, grey, red and taupe.

-Fabric bins like these: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=34146647&ref=cat1_gallery_7

-I am in love with this bracelet (in fall themed colors):
Thank you!

- A Mr. Eames (from Inception) or a Mal Reynolds (from Firefly) poppet

- A hedgehog or Skunk themed craft.

- Something from my wist: http://www.wists.com/akredhead

- Bath and Body Works wall flowers in any flavor
- Bath and Body Works stuff in White Tea and Ginger or Fig and Brown Sugar (we don't have Bath and Body Works in Alaska)

Here are the GORGEOUS items I received from my talented partner sailorgirlbonk.

She made this lovely bumble bee for my bumble bee collection.

Look at that cute bumble bee face!

She made this gorgeous "Firefly/Serenity" themed journal cover. Amazing.

These tags that I can't wait to find a use for in my scrapbooking.


Bumble bee themed cards...


A Jayne themed Ipod cozy.

In short, I got seriously spoiled. Thanks for the lovely crafts!
