1  First projects, tea towel and place mats in Needlework: Completed Projects by sbub on: December 26, 2009 12:56:36 PM
My first two embroidery projects, the first being a tea towel with fruit, I stitched this one on Christmas morning for my Nana. I have had it sitting around for years ready to stitch just never learnt how. I used split stitch with 3 strands of dmc floss.

And the second, place mats for my Mum. I had the linen in my fabric stash and found the vector image online. The first tree I started with steam stitch(?) but found it really hard so changed to split stitch.

I don't know if I have done the stitching correctly as I just taught myself but I would love your feedback. You can see more photos of them here and I also bloged about my last minute crafting.

2  Been trying out my new Denise needles. in Knitting: Completed Projects by sbub on: July 18, 2007 03:00:14 PM
I got a set of the Denise interchangeable neddles and have been trying them out. They are GREAT I love them.

To start with my new slippers (on the left) and my husbands prior to felting. They are the fibre trends clogs, and SO warm. (it's winter here atm)

Secondly a Panta made with left overs from my clogs.

Then i made a pair of Fetching from knitty.

And lastly, not on my new needles, my first sock, using opal yarn, and the universal toe up sock pattern from knitty. Only problem I have had is now I have finished the first one the cast off is too tight. even after casting off on needles 3 size bigger. Any ideas?

Wow there is some good stuff on these boards.
I wanted to do something with metal but couldn't find anything, not even a paper clip. (darn me throwing so much out when we moved)

So here is my first one. I just used a whole lot of circles, end of pens, lids, etc. And my second, I used my Medic Alert bracelet as a stamp

5  First Skirt in a long time in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by sbub on: January 17, 2007 07:30:19 PM
After a long no sew period I've started again with this skirt. It is from a sort of faux suede type fabric which i've had in my stash for years. The pattern was from a Burda mode magazine which I changed a little, basically it is a pencil skirt with godets in the back. I'm pretty happy with it being I have sewn anything for ages! 
Please excuse the photo my 5 year old daughter took it, and didn't really get the idea I wanted a photo of the skirt, not me.

6  Windmill Coin Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by sbub on: January 17, 2007 07:16:45 PM
This is a little coin purse I made today from a pattern in a Burda Mode magazine.
It was nice and quick to make. I used a tiny little scrap of fabric I had.

This one kind of shows how it opens/closes.

pretty much all it is is a cube which folds down on its self.

Ok here is my first attempt at ATC's

(sorry first photo got a bit compressed when I was uploading it)

On the subject of names, If my daughter was a boy he would have been Gage, which isn't that bad until you put Asimov as the middle name with a surname starting with a S.....

8  Knittys (Knit Wit) nosewarmer in Knitting: Completed Projects by sbub on: July 07, 2005 04:48:13 PM
I got the Knit Wit book out of the library a week or so back and my 4 year old saw the nose warmer and loved it. Then on our walk to kindy the next day she said her nose was cold and she needed a warmer for it. So last weekend I sat down and made it for her.
Took about 2 hours as I had never done short row shaping and could not work out the wrap stitch thing but in the end I did and here it is. (not a very good picture of my girl thought, but you see the nose warmer which is the important bit)

Well I was busy today and made three new cloth pads, (i have been using a AIO design for the past year or so) I was so sick of the time it took my pads to dry that this time I have made the like prefolds.
I haven't tired them yet so not sure on the comfort of these.
I have used some fleece on one to try a staydry feeling, like they do for cloth nappies. The colour fabric isn't the best but it's what i had

I've finished the vest and I'm very happy with it. I made the small size even though i was between small and medium, glad i did as it is just the right fit. This is the first garment i have made and was very confused how to reverse the neck shaping, Mum had to sit by and hold my had the whole way, Good old mum.
Peppermintsquare: For the DB02 when you don't have another one on the needle I just BO this stitch with the next one i knitted, Yes it doesn't look as neat as it could but I had no idea what else to do.
