1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Iron Man and Captain America cross-stitch iPhone case. on: November 11, 2012 03:05:58 AM
OH MY GOD!!!! I LOVE THIS!!!! It's so cute!!! And what you said is true, stitched covers would be perfect for gifts!! I just showed this to my friend and she's raging that she got the new galaxy rather than an iphone! LOVE IT! GREAT JOB!

Thank you. Smiley

I love it, what a great idea! Where did you find the case? Stony is nice, but I may have to make myself a Science Bros case, lol. Smiley

I picked the case up at a local home textile shop of all places (Hemtex if you happen to be in Sweden) but according to the box it's manufactured by Leese Design. I think it's a Korean company (at least it says Made in Korea on the box) but if it's available in Sweden it should be available elsewhere. Smiley

I really kind of want a million of these with different designs. Maybe that way I won't cry when I inevitably put it down in a puddle of coffee. Cheesy 
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Iron Man and Captain America cross-stitch iPhone case. on: November 10, 2012 03:02:51 PM

Found a stitch-your-own cover for iPhone 4 and this is what I did with it. Smiley

Cap and Iron Man come from here: (http://dorkstitch.blogspot.se/2012/05/cross-stitch-pattern-fun-with-avengers.html). I altered the patterns slightly for size and color, most notably I removed a row of stitches from Cap's shield and changed Iron Man's eyes.

The heart can be found here: http://www.craftdesigns4you.com/learntostitch.htm

The case is made of silicone (or something like it) and quite easy to stitch through, but it does put a lot of strain on the thread. So after I made Cap's outline (black on black, such a joy) I started using much shorter strands of floss to prevent fraying. Smiley

Now, I'm cursing the fact that none of my friends have an iPhone. Seriously, hand-stitched iPhone cases would make a perfect Christmas gift. *grumble*

super cool.  my only thing would be to make a pillow version of this- so it could be used by our son  to decorate his room. 

Thank you. Cheesy A pillow would be awesome, might actually make one of those for my brother. Smiley

That is absolutely amazing. Everything from the chicken feet to the house to the bony remains. Fantastic. Cheesy

(I must admit that my first thought was actually Terry Pratchett because there's a house on chicken feet in Witches Abroad.)

This looks really fantastic! This gives me renewed hope/ambition to do an Avengers suitcase. As for a template for the circles, I've used everything from a bowl or dinner plate to a dinner table (for a circle skirt!) for guides. Once you start looking for circles around the house it's surprisingly easy to find the right size.

Thank you and plates! Why didn't I think of that? I might still have to free hand a little but then I can't cut straight anyway so my circles would always come out a little crooked. Cheesy Avengers suitcase sounds intriguing. Smiley

First post. *waves*

A fairly simple tote bag with the ever-lovely Iron Man. I got the idea this morning and since I had a day off thought became done. Smiley

I free-hand drew the face using various movie poster and I think that if I do another one I'll probably make the face slightly "shorter" (I think he looks a bit horse-faced) and trim the excess black around the eyes.

To make assembly easier I glued the parts together before sewing with a regular glue stick (somewhat risky considering it's made entirely out of IKEA's cheapest fabric but there was no stains, even after ironing) and then zig-zagged around the edges with as 'tight' a stitch as my ancient sewing machine could manage (I love it but it's about 50 years old).

The tote is a basic reversible one that I made a pattern for yesterday (with this I mean that I taped papers together into a square of acceptable size) and the "decorative stitching" around the top was made in yellow. The handles are stitched with red on one side and yellow on the other.

All in all it was incredibly easy but somewhat time-consuming to sew. I think I'll do Captain America's shield next, but I really need to find something to make big circles with (free-handing would end in disaster). Cheesy

All of these are stunning and the tutorial is amazing. I'd never have thought of something like that. Cheesy
