32  Enagement present - monogrammed napkins! How sophisticated! in Needlework: Completed Projects by rocknroll on: August 16, 2005 10:01:04 AM
My sister just got engaged so I picked out these really nice napkins and placemats (I chose the color combination) and embroidered them with their first initial (for Nick & Jocelyn). I know it's simple, but I felt like it added a nice touch. I'm also pretty proud of my wrapping job...please comment!

Thanks for looking!

33  Tattoos for Mom & Dad! (Sublime Stitching-inspired) in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by rocknroll on: August 16, 2005 09:55:52 AM
So recently it was my parent's 30th anniversary and since I was raised a rocknroll baby (I recently flew to London to see Cream with my dad), and since I know they secretly love all my tattoos, I decided to embroidery some old school tats for both of them!

For my flaming-heart hot Momma:

And for my first-mate pirate Dad:

Please comment. I'm pretty new to embroidery - but these were embroidered with love!

34  Jungle print reversible slouchy bag!! Rrraow! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by rocknroll on: July 31, 2005 06:34:36 PM
So I had these 2 wraparound skirts I made when I was 14, so obviously they don't fit anymore (well they fit, but now they were more like hot shorts without the shorts part). I loved the fabric, so I decided to embelish them and sew them back to back to make a reversible bag. Now to see if it holds up with my daily use....

Please comment. Thanks for looking!

35  Re: Day of the dead shrine/craft swap gallery! in The Swap Gallery by rocknroll on: July 28, 2005 06:16:32 PM
Ok! Here's the fantastic stuff I got from rackycoo yesterday:

The amazing shrine that she built by hand complete with jiggly little skeleton man that she also apparently made by hand! And a beautiful poem by Luis San Vincente called *The Festival of Bones* with illustrations from the poem. I especially love the muerto tag she put at the bottom!

And here it is in it's new environment!

And here's the cute little zippered pouch with awesome skully-fabric lining and matching rugged skull on the outside!

And some goodies that she stuck in the pouch: an extra jiggly skeleton man and a plastic skull ring (& also a dragonfly charm that i think fell off the shrine but i don't know where it goes Smiley )

And finally, these gorgeous individual notecards that came in a tied little bundle and were all different:

This was an awesome first-swap and I had so much fun. Rackycoo will be getting the stuff I made her on Monday, so I won't post anything yet....

37  Alice in Bagland in Needlework: Completed Projects by rocknroll on: June 11, 2005 11:10:45 AM
So here's the very first embroidery i ever did. I found this old cross-stitch book called Alice in Stitches and made a pattern for embroidery. To make a long story short, i finished my masterpiece and then promptly ruined the fun red bag that i had embroidered on (don't ask). So now i've cut out the part that Alice was on and am now trying to make it work as a patch on another (not as cool) bag. Right now everything is just kinda pinned down but i don't feel like it's looking right. Please share your ideas!

38  Birthday Hanky with "S" in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by rocknroll on: June 11, 2005 10:57:46 AM
So I used a mix of Sublime's sparrow and an "S" I made up for this birthday gift for my friend Miss Stephanie. I think she'll like it (she's very girlie). Anyway, I gave it a good ironing, but as you can see, the hoop imprint is still there. Should I soak it in some water? I'm nervous to throw it in a washing machine because of the stitching. The fabric is a fairly strong linen/cotton. Thanks for looking!

39  Tarot Card Table in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by rocknroll on: June 11, 2005 10:41:02 AM
hello craft-babies! Here's an ugly coffe table (i don't have "before" pics but take my word for it) that I transformed using "the cards." Very easy: Painted said table black. Glued down layer of newspaper (just for added pattern to show between cards) then taped down cards in chosen pattern and used some clear matte-medium brushed over the top with an old credit card (so no brush marks would show). Sorry if pics are a little blurry - i don't have the steadiest hand!

40  Argyle cushion set in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by rocknroll on: June 11, 2005 10:23:16 AM
ok here's a set of argyle-inspired cushions that i made to go with my 50's style table. there really was nothing to it: i just ripped the country-home fabric off some existing cushions and sewed solid fabric on pillow-case style. Then i cut diamonds off other fabric and hand-sewed them on with a running stitch of visible contrasting thread. Oh, and of course, don't forget little ties to hold the cushions onto the chairs.

any thoughts or suggestions of further "accessories"? Thanks for looking!
