The nursery doesn't have any specific colors that I know of.  I think blues and greens.

The black faces are "soot sprites" from the movies. 

Here is a pic of the fabric:

3  Feedback Wanted - Baby Gift in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by lilusa on: August 08, 2014 08:34:03 AM
I'm not sure what it's called, but I'm making a "memory" hoop detailing the birth of my friend's baby.  The nursery is My Neighbor Totoro theme. 

I made this mock up of what I wanted, but it seems a bit plain.  The background will be light blue with light blue stars.

What can I do to jazz it up and what colors should I use for the thread? The empty space is his last name.

4  Doctor Who Inspired Crafting Apron in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lilusa on: July 30, 2014 10:14:37 AM
I haven't sewn in a while, so I decided to make this apron.  (Especially since my husband just built me a sewing cabinet/crafting station!)  The apron is supposed to be a gift, but I might keep it >.<

The pattern is from One Yard Wonders.

Front: 8 Pockets: 2 small pockets, 3 large pockets, 1 medium pocket, and 2 extra large pockets

Back: TARDIS interior theme fabric


Closeup of the TARDIS:

My sewing machine foot is having issues and I'm crap at sewing straight lines:

Pocket interior - Interfacing for durability and strength

The pattern I used had me sew the front and back of the apron *before* the pockets.  I didn't notice this design flaw until too late.  However, it *does* provide extra stability to the pockets.  In the future I would probably not sew the front and back together until after the pockets.

I made this bias binding using a bias machine. I only had a single fold tip, so I used it anyway.  This caused an uneven folding of the bias.  Meh....this was the only spot I missed though.

I got my package today OMG I LOVE EVERYTHING.

First up:  Adipose Yarn Art.  I can't even imagine what a PITA this was. Yarn art is sooo annoying to do.  I love it!  Purple and adipose?? SCORE!

Next up, Captain Jack Plushie.  Including a teeny tiny vortex manipulator, tiny gun AND removable jacket, WHAT?!

My wonderful partner also some reusable snack bags!  I've been wanting some so it's awesome.  Cyberman, Dalek and the TARDIS.

Last but certainly not least, amazing TARDIS headbow.  I put it on AS SOON as I pulled it out of the package.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.  I love everything.  Like for realsies.

For the Dr. Who swap I made my partner a TARDIS key necklace.

I used an old key and some chains I literally found in the street like a year ago. 

Gold and copper fine glitter, mod podge, acrylic sealant and clear nail polish.

8  My first hoop - Unicorn/Lady Gaga theme - Picture heavy in Needlework: Completed Projects by lilusa on: April 19, 2012 05:04:36 PM
This is my first hoop.  I've done some embroidery before though (not much.)  I learned that metallic thread is a PITA and that I suck at taking pictures (some of these are Cell, some are digicam.) I was heavily inspired by the work of loveandasandwich

I got my package!  It is a unicorn theme Tub and two unicorn plushies.  They smell like candy!  Very cute.  (ignore the huge mess, i've been trying to pack/move for the last month or so >.< )  The black one did not look too happy being trapped in that tub...
