1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Alice & Cheshire cat on: February 23, 2012 01:50:05 AM
I made this hoop for average_fan, in the swap "Embroidery Hoopla round 7 : negative space & silhouette".

Here are the Cheshire cat and Alice from the Disneys cartoon Alice in wonderland.
I superimposed the two figures, and embroidered the non-common parts.

(thank you average_fan for this picture very useful in understanding the embroidery)

Its embroidered with Kensington stitches.
I found amusing that we should make an effort to distinguish the two figures Smiley

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / negative space Mario Bros team on: February 23, 2012 01:15:28 AM
I made this hoop for pugwash, in the swap "Embroidery Hoopla round 7 : negative space & silhouette".

Here are Princess Peach in pink, Luigi in green, Mario in red and a Toad in yellow, running in a setting of Mario Bros video game.

They're embroidered with french knots, and the setting with back stitches.

It's my first embroidery with french knot and I'm very happy how it turned out.

I made this amigurumi doll for a friend who is a fan of Arrietty, from the Miyazakis movie : the Borrowers (Karigurashi no Arrietty).
I used the indications from Free Spirit Amigurumi Doll Pattern http://byhookbyhand.blogspot.com/2009/07/one-of-things-ive-really-wanted-to-do.html .
I used :
- cotton yarn (n5) and a B crochet
- paper for her eyes
- a peak for skewer painted with sliver paint, and a yellow pinhead glued on the top for the sword
- white and green flet for her belt + a small piece of cord
- brown felt for her boots

Arms and legs are flexible. Shes about 20 cm high.

4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / the DEATH from Discworld on: May 01, 2011 11:37:18 AM

I made the DEATH from Discworld for my swap-partner in the newbies swap round 15  Smiley

I used white cotton yarn for the "body" and black felt for the robe, crocheted and sewn on a wireframe skeleton.
I glued two white phosphorescent polymer clay spot on black felt for the eyes, and his silver pin on his robe.
His belt is made with silver and brown felt.
The blade, the handle of the scythe and the hourglass are made with polymer clay too.

I glued a small magnet at the bottom of the hourglass and another one on a holder that can be inserted in his right wrist.

I done a support symbolizing the death's domaine ground modeled with silver and white phosphorescent polymer clay and wire. So he can stand up with his scythe and the hourglass!
I didnt use a pattern, just followed my inspiration.
Thanks for looking Smiley
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / pixel Hello Kitty blanket on: February 04, 2011 03:00:32 AM

Heres the blanket I made for my niece who was born two months ago (she is Sagittarius, so I drew and crocheted a bowman hello kitty).
Its my first project made with granny square, I was inspired by this post : https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=328097.0
I drew my model from a hello kitty cross stitch model and a hello kitty bowman picture.
I used an Excel page to do it. Heres the pattern :

It consists of 1271 square sewn together. (947 white ; 189 black ; 97 purple (finally not red Smiley) ; 28 grey ; 4 pink ; 4 green ; 4 yellow).
I used pingorex baby yarn  http://www.rascol.com/laine-tricot/laine-pingouin/pingorex-baby/?gclid=CNvR072j7qYCFQgMfAodY0tjFg, and crocheted with a 2.5mm crochet.
Each square is 3 cm X 3 cm.
I crocheted them from July to December 2010, and sewn them from November to December.
Finally the blanket is 90 cm by 120 cm.
I was very happy to finish it just in time for Christmas!!!

Thanks for looking!
6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Shock from NBX on: September 23, 2010 10:34:52 AM
I made this amigurumi for a friend who is a big fan of The Nightmare Before Christmas. He wanted Shock, from the trio Lock, Shock and Barrel.

I was not very sure of myself : to be able to create an amigurumi like her, from photos found on internet (I lent my DVD to a friend, so I couldnt work with).
He only gave me a week to realize her (the deadline was his birthday! To haaaaaaaard, not enough tiiiiiiime!).
But I tried, I even quietly worked on her during my working timeI finished the day before the deadline, whew! Finally the dress took me the longest time to do.
There she is:

I used the indications from amydices post : https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=349609.0
I also used the Free Spirit Amigurumi pattern for the body(http://byhookbyhand.blogspot.com/2009/07/one-of-things-ive-really-wanted-to-do.html, and I created a conical head.
I used :
- cotton yarn (n5) and a B crochet
- blue and white felt attached with black brads for the eyes (her black make-up? With a black ballpen Smiley), glued with hot glue gun
- blue and black felt for the mouth (her teeth? With a correction pen Smiley), glued with hot glue gun.
- Arms and legs are flexible. I fixed a pipe cleaner inside the hat and the neck so they are flexible too.
Shes about 20 cm high without the hat (hat is about 10 cm high).

Thanks for watching Smiley
