Totally cool!  I like the zipper.
22  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / It's hard out there for a pillow on: June 09, 2011 09:31:47 PM
Borrowing more patterns from


I've whipped up this doozy of a pillow.  A classy French pimp escorts six fine, upstanding young ladies.  Metallic gold floss brings attention to the difficulties of the man's line of work.

It's light blue 14 count aida with one strand.  I've got the pattern around here somewhere if someone wants it.

I was worried that the girls would appear too small and, therefore, too young.  The original pattern is supposed to be girls following a schoolmarm.  I think it turned out alright and thus I have avoided looking like a creep.

Le border and signature.  The date is in the opposite corner.  I'm not too happy with the border.  Too Christmasy; but it's only my fault for using DMC 699 (Xmas green) and DMC 666 (Xmas red).

The man himself.  After trying variants of the jacket's color scheme, I decided to go with various shades of green.  Now that I look at it, I think I should have outlined the figures, too.  Oh well.

Tell me what you think!
23  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Disregard Maidens, Acquire Ducats Pillow on: May 25, 2011 09:43:55 PM
I made this pattern a few months ago, stitched it up a while back, and finally got around to making it into a pillow earlier today.

The front interior is lined with felt and the back is a red fabric with a sort of paisley design.

The pattern comes from http://albumsdantan.canalblog.com/

and the caption is an homage to the Joseph Decreux Archaic Rap image macro http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/joseph-ducreux-archaic-rap#.Td3V7UewU2o

24  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / AWESOME ipod nano sleeve on: May 23, 2011 08:42:25 PM
I traded in my ipod touch for an ipod nano and suddenly my ipod touch sleeve was useless, so I made this one for the tiny, tiny nano.

The image is a pattern I devised from the awesome smiley.

The clip of the nano runs through a hole in the sleeve, and the sleeve wraps around the front and is secured on the other side of the nano with the clip.  Ingenious!

There's not much room for a picture, so a simple pattern looks best; video game sprites, emoticons, and quotations all look pretty good.

Bonus: all the buttons and inputs are free while the sleeve is on, and using the touchscreen is still easy.

This is the first one I made before perfecting the design.

They're lined with some thin fabric I have to prevent the thread from fraying and to keep the thread from leaving marks on the touchscreen (not a big deal because the marks just wipe right off, but they were annoying).

Tell me what you think!

Whoa, putting the keyboard guts in the frame really gives it a spacey look.  It's like it came straight outta Samus' gunship.

Just so you know, I will be stealing that bird design.

Cranking the retro up a notch: in a rustic frame.

28  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / SSID & WEP KEY Sampler on: April 14, 2011 08:05:22 AM
In another inspired mix of contemporary and traditional, I give you the SSID and WEP KEY Sampler!

On 14 count oatmeal colored aida, with four colors.  My housemate got the idea from when friends come over with laptops and mobile devices and always need to connect to her wifi.  It was a hassle looking at the router every time and she doesn't know how to change the password to something memorable and whenever she wrote it down on something, it'd get lost.  So here it is to be framed and hung on the wall.

She already has a bunch of decor with tree motifs, so I thought I'd continue that.  The blue/green color scheme matches the colors of her walls, too.

Took me the better part of a week to bust this out.

Some details

I was up until 2:30 last night saying "Just one more leaf just one more leaf" until I had finished it all.  The leaf stitches are crossed in different directions, which makes the thread shimmer a little bit.

Thanks for your comments and questions!

How did you attach the magnets to the back?  Glue?
