1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / French knot Velociraptor! on: May 03, 2011 02:18:19 PM
Jurassic Park was my absolute favourite childhood film! When faced with the huge number of Bank Holidays we just had I decided to pay tribute to the second-best dinosaur in the film (#1 T-Rex) with a new hoop. I'm not the world's neatest satin-stitcher so thought I would try out french knots for a change. I quite liked the scaley effect it gave, although I did not fully anticipate the huge number of knots needed!

Anyway, to cut to the chase, here she is...

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / The Boosh is loose on: February 20, 2011 01:07:47 PM

I love all of the doodle-style artwork on the cover of the Mighty Boosh dvds and in their book so had a go at translating some of it into embroidery. I did think about colouring it in and showing Ol' Greg and Tony Harrison in their multi-colour glory but I'm not sure if I've got the patience at the moment.

Most of it is straight-forward back stitch with a little chain stitch and the occasional (untidy) french knot. I'm happy-ish with most of it but the text is a little bit too wonky at the top. My favourite bit to do was obviously Vince's awesome hair Wink

Somehow I made it to age 24 without ever seeing one of the original Star Wars films. My sister's boyfriend introduced me to the films and the rest, as they say, is history.

I started this pretty much as soon as I got home after seeing the film and instead of waiting to buy some plain white cotton I just grabbed the nearest light-coloured fabric, I'm embracing the pink now, though Smiley Unfortunately it's a bit see-through but it looks better against the white walls

I finished this hoop today...

In the picture I based it on they are snuggled up underneath a big fluffy blanket so I tried to replicate it by sewing a fluffy wool onto the fabric. I also tried using wax crayons to colour after seeing the information at the top of the board for the first time.

I can't decide whether I'm happy with it or whether it looks like one of the portraits from badtattoos.com but I'm going to show it to my sister (and the kids' mum) tomorrow so she can decide!

5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Playing with Coptic binding and different covers on: August 26, 2010 12:34:03 PM
I recently learnt how to bind books from a youtube video using the coptic binding, since then I've been playing with different kinds of covers and these are the results!

I think I like the magazine covers best because they are so easy to do and the covers are perfectly designed to deal with everything that a book has to deal with.
