Sheesh, because I really needed to get obsessed with a new type of embroidery. ^_^ But no really, this is awesome! Thanks for posting the link to your blog--I've been wanting to try Huck embroidery since I first saw it here on Craftster, but I've been too timid to try it. You explain it very well, so I think I'm off to the craft store this week! ^_^

Looking good! Smiley I do the same, drawing freehand and waiting for the lines to come out in the wash, haha. It's only not worked for me once, thankfully. Keep an eye out for air and water soluble markers at your craft store (though obvs I need to take my own advice ^_^).

Wow, those are both amazing and awesomely unique. I love how you did The Poltergeist one. Awesomely creepy. Smiley

Thanks, guys!

@alwaysinmyroom: My husband really liked the little giraffe, too. Smiley

@kawaiihelen: Aren't Mr Men the best? Smiley But I was shocked--most of the people at the baby shower had no memory of the Mr Men/Little Miss books and characters!
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Baby Bibs! on: May 15, 2012 10:47:46 AM
Another year, another close friend/family member having a baby boy. Smiley

My good friend is due to have a baby boy in early July so for her baby shower I decided to embroider baby bibs like I did for my sister-in-law: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=384229.0. Everything is done in split stitch and the bibs are a 10-pack of Circo terry cloth bibs from Target. Weirdly I had a lot more snagging, with the elastic terry cloth threads coming up with my needle/thread, than I did last time. Sometimes I was able to push/pull them back underneath but not always. Darn it. Tongue

My friend and her husband love classic rock, so I looked around online for something very rock and roll. I couldn't find anything exactly perfect so I used inspiration from a couple different designs and drew this up.

Line-drawing of an elephant. Slightly embarrassing, but this is actually the logo from some company. I saw it on a cardboard box at a friend's house and scribbled it down without noting the name of the company, and now I can't figure out what it is. But I liked how loopy it was and thought it was great for a baby bib.

Urban Threads high-centered cow who tried to jump over the moon. I liked this one so much when I did one for my nephew that I had to use the design again. Smiley

Dinosaur with a crooked tail.

Rocket ship. Also a repeat because flames shooting out of a rocket is just too much fun to do only once.

Blue whale with a whale of a tail!

My friends are HUGE Nebraska football fans, so a Nebraska bib was a must!

And a nosy giraffe, chomping on some leaves. Hm. I really should have taken a better picture of this guy. I love how he's peeking over the edge of the bib like he's saying, "Hey. What's up." ^_^

Probably my absolute favorite. Mr Messy from the Mr Men books, hugely inspired by crochetchick's bib and Mr Men quilt squares: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=337348.0
I've wanted to do a Mr Messy bib ever since I saw her post, but was too intimidated to try and make him last year for my nephew. Now I wish I had because I love how he turned out and my nephew, like all babies, certainly was a Mr Messy. Cheesy

Now two close-ups from my two fave bibs:

(Mr Messy's eyes are satin stitch)

And a group pic of all the bibs. Smiley There's only nine out of the ten pack here because I held one back so once my friends decide on a name I can do a monogram.

Thanks for looking!

Very nice! I hadn't heard of this type of embroidery/lace before either but it's lovely. Great job. Smiley

Awesome. That looks so cute! Smiley

That is incredibly awesome. I had to send it to my friends who are big fans of the show, no surprise, they thought it was amazing. Smiley Awesome job!

Thanks, peeps! And yeah, this was a great way to practice fly stitch, feather stitch and bullion knots as I default to split stitch probably too often. Smiley

@yarnynerd: I'll have to try that. I always assume that surely bright natural light is the best for taking pics, but maybe that just isn't true for this darn black felt. ^_^
