1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Doctor Whooves on: December 11, 2012 05:26:39 PM
This is a Doctor Who re-imagined My Little Pony hoop that I made for my partner in the Secret Santa swap.

It was so much fun to make and it was the first time I had used crayons while embroidering and I must say, I am a fan of that technique!

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Doctor Who Cross Stitch on: October 09, 2012 09:50:59 AM
I got this glorious pattern on flickr and knew I had to make it for the most recent Doctor Who swap! It took me forever, but I thought it turned out wonderfully!

It was so hard to part with, but I got enough supplies to make a second one for me Smiley
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / My first screen print! on: June 17, 2012 06:56:42 PM
My boyfriend is getting his MFA in printmaking, so for a dino swap, I decided I was going to learn how to screen print. We used a baby oil transfer, but the screen was really wonky and some of the image dissolved/didn't transfer properly, but I think it turned out ok, especially since it was my first try.

We printed on the t-shirt a few times because it hid the mistakes better than just the singular dino.

The bag turned out much better, but I painted the blue, just to give it a little more of a pop.

I really enjoyed printing and hopefully next time my screen won't be so stubborn!
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidered Cards on: June 17, 2012 06:49:00 PM
For the recent dinosaur swap, I made my partner some embroidered cards and this is how they turned out!

Here is the whole group (Ankylosaurus, Stegosaurus, Brontosaurus, and Pachycephalosaurus)

This is a close up of the Ankylosaurus (I think this is my favorite)

And a close up of the Pachycephalosaurus (which also turned out really nice).

After I embroidered them, I glued some plain card stock on the back to hide the knots and stitches, and the stitches made an imprint of the dino on the inside of the card too. It was very hard to part with these, and I am definitely going to make more in the future.
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Folklore Bag on: April 29, 2012 10:37:26 AM
This is a bag I made using the Folklore Bag pattern from the book "One Yard Wonders"

I'm in love with it. At first I thought it was going to be smaller than I would like, but it turned out to be the perfect size.

Here is a close-up of the pleating detail:

The instructions were a little confusing, so I think it turned out a little wonky, but I really, really love it. It fits everything and looks pretty darn cute. I couldn't ask for a better bag.
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / It's My Cat on a Box on: April 29, 2012 10:32:16 AM
Back in the late 90's or early 00's (approximately, since that is when I went through my "cat stage"), I bought a cross stitch kit where the finished product resulted in a small decorated cat box. Fast forward to now, I found said kit in a bunch of old craft things and finally finished it.

I'm in love with the pink edges. This was definitely worth holding on to.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Eyelet Hat on: April 29, 2012 10:23:46 AM
Since winter was practically non-existent this year, I was having winter clothing withdrawals. I decided to make this hat because it is relatively lightweight and perfect for the chillier days in spring.

Here is the link to the pattern I used:http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/leeannes-eyelet-beret

And here is an action shot:

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Easy Peasy Baby Sweater on: April 29, 2012 10:18:59 AM
One of my good friends from high school is having a baby, so of course I wanted to make some cute (and easy) baby swag. I made this using the Rectangle Garter Baby Cardigan pattern from Lion Brand. This is probably one of the easiest things I have ever made and it looks pretty darn cute. 

I can't wait to see it in action!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Kitten Mittons on: June 01, 2011 06:28:27 PM
My cat was making so much noise, always stomping around and driving me crazy, so I decided to do something about it. I made Kitten Mittons. I used a slightly modified version of the one hour baby booties pattern from Stitch 'N Bitch Nation. Unfortunately, my cat refused to even attempt to wear them, but I still think they are pretty epic.

This is the attempt at the action shot

And this is the actual finished product
