1  Re: July & June ATCs in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by SheLovesToCraft on: July 26, 2015 10:26:56 PM
Thanks, y'all.
Circle head alien guy has made appearances in a lot of my wotk in the past. Many paintings, and many incarnations - including Alex DeLarge and as a kitty cat.

Here is one I sent out in an IG swap (#cpatcswap):

2  July & June ATCs in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by SheLovesToCraft on: July 23, 2015 11:14:37 PM
I have made some more but have swapped them and need to gind the photos on other devices, but these are most of the cards I have made the last two-ish months. There are a few different styles, techniques,  and mediums - it was a little exciting to jump back into making ATCs after five-ish years.

3  Re: Hoopla A-Long 2013-2015 in Needlework: Stitchalongs by SheLovesToCraft on: February 28, 2015 09:29:30 PM
I can't believe that I was able to finish this in time. I started it at the beginning of the month, but have been really busy. I think my almost-10 month old is about to cut his first tooth, because he has been CRANKY the last two days. Glad I actually finished it.

I have been embroidering for over 20 year, but have never been very adventurous with my stitches. This challenge was a good chance for me tp try some new stitches. I actually ended up stitching more than what ended up in the finished hoop, but oh well. Stitches used were chain (new), herringbone (new), cross stitch (old), back stitch (old), gern stitch (new), sheaf stitch (new), feather stitch (new), running stitch (old), blanket stitch (old, but a variation that is new to me. I chose to do a sampler in rainbow colors because I love rainbows.  I also had a REALLY hard time choosing one color, so my solution to that problem.is almost always RAINBOW.

Sorry about the crappy cell phone pics, but I will likely take nicer ones for my blog, so I should be able to replace 'em tomorrow.

4  Frida Kahlo Hoopla in Needlework: Completed Projects by SheLovesToCraft on: January 11, 2015 07:09:18 PM

I appliqued black felt for Frida's hair, and embroidered the rest. I kind of freehanded the flowers. I used a piece of a vintage pillowcase as the base fabric. This was a gift for a friend who loves Frida and who also re-purposes vintage linens in her own creations. You can see how I finished the back on my blog here: http://shelovestocraft.blogspot.com/2015/01/frida-kahlo-hoopla.html

5  Felt Finger Puppets in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by SheLovesToCraft on: March 22, 2014 01:06:17 AM
WARNING:The last photo has some stickers on my sewing machine that have swear words in them!!!

Awhile back, I made a whole mess of finger puppets for my boyfriend's children. I had so much fun making them, and they used minimal amounts of materials that I already had on hand.Pretty much just felt, embroidery floss, some ribbon, and buttons. The kids loved them, too.

The jelly is my favorite, I used glow-in-the-dark embroidery floss on him, and I crocheted his tentacles using mixed strands of variegated and glow floss with a tiny hook, it's just a chain stitch.

I was going to make a wolf to go with the three little pigs, but I had my heart set on a grey wolf, and discovered that I was out of grey felt. Will have to make one soon!

Group of monsters!

Action shot!

I checked out a lot of the blogs in his thread, so sad that many haven' been updated in as long as six years!
Anyhow, my blog is not JUST crochet, but crochet is one of my "main" crafty mediums, and I have done quite a few posts recently that are strictly crochet (including patterns and tutorials).

7  Rainbow Star-ghan for My Little Boy in Crochet: Completed Projects by SheLovesToCraft on: February 26, 2014 11:08:29 PM
I had made this really awesome star shaped baby blanket for a friend a couple years ago, and when I found out that I was pregnant last year, I waned to make one for my baby. Unfortunately, I wen back to that pattern and it had been removed by the author! I looked around on Ravelry and ended up comparing a couple different free patterns to find a similar one. I found a good one, altered it a tiny bit, and got started. When I started way back in October, I didn't know the sex of the baby yet, so I settled on a basic rainbow+black palette. I ended up losing my hook partway through the project, so it took quite some time to complete. Plus, I am a super lazy crocheter. Sometimes, I'd pull it out to work on it, do two or three stitches, and zone out on Boardwalk Empire or Game of Thrones.

And here's a bonus shot of my kittie, Harvey, "helping" me. He was talking back to me after I caught him trying to steal my scissors.

Here is a photo of the background I made before I put the collage pieces on top. The edges (the texture) is one of my favorite techniques, and I kind of stumbled on it by accident.

9  Simple Collage - Dead Girls Walking in a Garden in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by SheLovesToCraft on: November 16, 2011 03:33:13 AM
I made this piece of wall art on a 5x7 canvas panel using metallic acrylic paints, collage, and acrylic medium. I can't wait to frame it!

This is a detail shot to show the texture around the edges, as well as the different colors used for the background.

Sorry that it's sideways!
