3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Hunger Games Panel on: June 23, 2013 03:55:25 AM
I am a MASSIVE Hunger Games fan and started stitching this up pretty much as soon as I finished reading the books .... it's just taken me forever to actually get it finished and up on the craft room wall lol.  I converted the pattern myself using KGStitch, and is stitched on 14 count black aida, and backed with felt Cheesy

And some close ups (before it was ironed Tongue) -

May the odd's be ever in your favour Smiley
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Chakra Patchwork Tablet Case on: June 23, 2013 03:46:20 AM
My friend bought a Nexus 10 tablet recently and asked me to make a case/bag for it.  After I started making it for just the tablet, he asked whether it would be possible to fit his tablet in there when it was in his bigger keyboard case.  As I'd already cut all the fabric and started embroidering it, I decided that instead of starting over, I'd stitch in some side panels with press studs so you could open the bag out if the tablet was with keyboard case, and close the sides up if the tablet was on it's own, and it would still be nice and secure.  I added ribbon tabs at the top of each side panel so that a bag strap could be added at a later point.  It's  3 layers of felt for each panel, and the chakras have all been embroidered by hand, and were from Urban Threads.  The case has a small pouch on the inside to keep usb cables and other bits in, and the case closes with three press studs.  Smiley  I totally wanted to keep it for myself!!! 

An in progress shot so you can sort of see the side panels.

Thanks so much everyone!! It was great fun getting these pictures, we had so many weird looks from kids out having snowball fights!!! Haha. 

Very nice!
Do they keep you warm?

They did keep me surprisingly warm actually  Grin  Although we weren't out there for very long...so I think if we did an event when it was this cold would definitely have to get researching some proper authentic undergarments which would help with the warmth. The Viking was definitely much warmer though, as there were more thick woolen layers - this outfit is a nightmare in the summer, you just roast!  If I had a woolen partlet for the Tudor, rather than a thin linen one then it would have been nice and warm in that too Smiley

What extremely fantastic pictures. They look straight out of the times!!! And that hair! Adds to the look of authentically of the times.

Thank you!!!  The hair is seriously long now!!   Grin

9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Steampunk phone case on: June 22, 2013 03:09:18 PM
I made this steampunk themed phone case as a present for a friend who is a massive steam punk fan recently.  It is totally hand stitched and made from 4 layers of felt.  The felt lining the case is in a contrasting colour.  The case closes with three press studs and the edges have been binded.  I found some awesome wooden steampunky cog beads on eBay and had to buy them for this project.  The embroidery patterns are from urban threads, my favouritist pattern website ever!!  This was soooo much fun to make!!

So back when we had an epic amount of snow in January (....well lots of snow for Bath anyway lol) we had a mini photo opportunity in the park behind my house.  These were the results:

My authentic Tudor garb....

And Viking garb....

I am in love with both these outfits  Grin
