Ah, Smeddly, I'm in love with all your foxey crafts! And Rockingbearranch, That ATC is wonderful. The mixed media/yarn elements are a super addition!

Prompt:  August : Table Tennis
Team: Digital
Medal Event: -
Bonus Points: -
Project Name: PokTowel
Project Link: -
Brief Description: My nephew has recently become quite obsessed with Pokmon. I stitched this up to give him for his 10th birthday. Pikachu is his favourite, and I just lucked out that his name has an "o" I could replace with a Pokball. Smiley

I had a rather difficult time with it --first time embroidering a towel. Each attempt took 90 minutes to stitch out and it took a few attempts to pass quality control (aka my inner critic). I ended up stitching the elements on one piece of towel and patching it on to another one to give it a nice clean back/no embroidery showing through (and because honestly I didn't trust it would stitch out nicely on my last remaining towel). It's one of those cases of "not a 100% happy with it but I think he will love it and I am not willing to torture myself through trying to make yet another one".  Tongue

Yay! I finally finished a couple of projects so I can play along with everyone! Cheesy I have been in sort of lurker mode watching you all post your magnificent projects.

Prompt:  June; A la carte
Team: DiGiTaL
Medal Event: Fabricology

Project Name: Lexa Doll
Project Link: --
Brief Description: This is Lexa, a character from The 100. Initially I was going to make Lexa wholly with fabric but ended up giving in to my desire to bling her up. She has fabric elements of course, along with craft foam (her wrist bracers and belt buckles) and various paper craft/scrapbooking elements (her forehead gear and brads on her bracers).

Project Name: Clarke Doll
Project Link: --
Brief Description: This is Clarke, another character from the Tv show The 100...and she fits the prompt because she has a face! Wink (best.prompt.ever!)

Hopefully I did everything right. Smiley And now that I've realised I need a bookmark, I'm off to figure out what I could make that will fit one of the prompts! (this craftalong thing seems like it could get addictive quickly!)
