1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / The Edge. on: September 19, 2010 08:41:49 AM
My friend likes U2, so I made her a little Edge doll.
I based him on Nerdigurumi's Link pattern. His arms and legs are stuffed with pipe cleaners, so they're bendable. Sort of.
I even made him a little felt guitar, with a toothpick for the guitar... um, handle? Neck? Can you tell I have no knowledge of musical instruments whatsoever?  Cheesy

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Goodbye, LOST. I will miss you. on: May 19, 2010 01:16:07 AM
So, only one episode of Lost left.  Cry
This is me saying goodbye. I plan to frame this cross stich, place it on my wall and sniff a little every time I see it.

I used six little symbols that represent Lost for me. I needed only six, for the six seasons Lost had. But the choice was hard. After all, so many to chose from. Fishbiscuit, polar bear, Black Rock, hatch, airplane, submarine, Otherville... Am I a nerd? Yes, I am.  

Here's a wrinkled, out of the hoop picture.

Since this is as big as these pictures can get, here's a link to my blog post with clickable pictures, for anyone who wants to see bigger close-ups.
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Mrgud on: August 14, 2009 09:24:07 AM
The Smurfs. Man, I loved that cartoon.

I recently sewed this dishtowel out of aida cloth and stitched my favorite Smurf on it. It's Grouchy. Or Mrgud, as we call him in Croatia.

Here he is expressing his (and my) opinion of dishes. Can you guess what he's saying?  Grin

He's done on 22count aida cloth, one strand of floss. Now that I look at it, I probably should have centered the phrase, instead of this...right alignment?

Blogged here.

4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Elephant, fish and mushrooms on: April 30, 2009 08:27:22 AM
I haven't posted anything on Craftster in ages, so I thought I'd rectify this with some of my latest embroidery.

The elephant is a pattern from So september. I colored it in with crayons after embroidering. Should have done it before.

Vintage pattern from doe-c-doe. This was my first time filling in anything with stitches. It took forever.

Pattern from the Sublime Stitching Craft Pad. Done in DMC Light Effects. I didn't really like working with this thread - it's metallic and coarse, and rough, it separates and tangles. Basically a pain in every way.
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / What kind of car is this? on: December 01, 2008 06:42:41 AM
This is my very second embroidered anything. It's actually an old bed sheet, which might turn into a pouch someday.
The image I used is from a Dingbat font, called Old Car. Cute old cars for every letter, this one below was U. I have no idea what car it actually is. Anyone?

I started off with six strands of floss, then it occurred to me that using less strands might make it easier to pull the thread trough. It did  Cheesy

So, what do you think?
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Super late jump on the bandwagon on: February 09, 2008 03:43:04 AM
It's been ages since I posted any of my knitting, but that doesn't mean I neglected the craft. I'm catching up with patterns that everyone already knit ages ago. That's right - Fetching and Jaywalkers:

I still haven't knit Clapotis, so watch out for that one  Grin

I also made some random k4,p2 socks.

7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Thin notebooks on: February 05, 2008 07:53:36 AM
I made these from some calendar illustrations. The covers are a little thicker than your normal printer paper, so the result is a really thin and fragile little notebook.
They only have about 12 pages - they're basically single signature pamphlets, sewn with white embroidery floss.



Blog post.
8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Stitch markers and random charms (pic heavy) on: January 28, 2008 07:37:49 AM
Two by two, hands of blue :-)

Cake, slices and cupcakes.

Lemons and hearts.

Everything is made from FIMO, mostly soft. The lemons are from FIMO Classic, and boy was that a pain to condition.

Ups, forgot these little guys. 

9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Advent wreath and gift bags on: December 15, 2007 03:49:00 AM
I'm a little late with posting this. I made the advent wreath from walnut shells, hot glued to a wreath base. Or a round cardboard circle covered with newspapers. I sprayed the whole thing silver, to hide the glue. Gold would probably have been a better choice, but I only had silver spray paint. Got the idea from a magazine. 

Blurry out of focus photo:

With flash on:

I also sewed some gift pouches for my friends. I stenciled the big snowflakes with silver fabric paint. The green is stamping ink. That was a huge mistake - the damn thing bled too much. Now I have smudges instead of cute little green snowflakes.

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / German knitters help! "tiefer einstechen" Frage on: December 03, 2007 10:02:40 AM
I want to knit some socks from a German pattern, but I'm not sure if I got everything right.

The pattern says:
1 Rd: *5 M li, 1 M re*
2 Rd: *5 M li, 1 M re, dabei 1 R tiefer einstechen, ab * wdh.

So I purl 5, knit 1 in the first round, and purl 5, knit 1 in the second round, while also doing...something else. What does it mean, Eine Reihe tiefer einstechen? Knit into the stitch below? Am I supposed to do this for the entire second round, even the puls? Or just the knit stitches?  Huh
