The fabric is ironed on with something like heatnbond or whatever it's called... then the embroidery is done. I don't use stabilizer with these because honestly it's hard enough to get a needle through layers of fabric and that heat n' bond stuff without stabilizer in the way.... if it were just embroidery on a onesie i would definitely use stabilizer though.

Thanks for the answers and opinions everyone! I guess I'm off to outline the eyes and nose of the boy one Smiley
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Moogle Cross Stitch - yay for pixel art cross stitch! on: April 20, 2009 12:10:52 PM
I've been wanting to do little video game cross stitches for - well... for as long as i can remember Smiley

who doesn't want a moogle framed on their desk with them?

I suppose those who don't know what a moogle is wouldn't care too much but who's counting them? Wink

I still have to add a little backing so he'll sit up straight on a desk... or I suppose you could hang him on the wall too. Smiley

I'm pretty much in love with this thing... love the hanky, love the way the embroidery turned out. It was difficult to embroider because the fabric was so fragile but I really do like it.

Friends keep having babies so i keep making baby things Smiley

The girl was inspired by my a tattoo the new mom has, and a made a boy one just for fun Smiley Do you guys think the eyes and nose should be outlined or no?

Also i have kindof a silly question... is this applique? I have no idea... it's just a process I started using to create these for friends, but it seems like it could be called applique, I'm just not sure of the definition...

Wow thanks for all the compliments everyone! I'm really new to embroidery so it's encouraging to hear this and makes me want to try new things Smiley

@PaleAngelLex - the leaf is actually done in fishbone stitch. Everyone keeps commenting how well done the satin stitching is here but there isn't any satin stitch in the whole piece... fishbone stitch can be sortof similar though, but it was a fun stitch to learn - there is a video tut here: http://www.needlenthread.com/2006/11/fishbone-stitch-video-tutorial.html

I think I worked all the filling stitches with 2 threads. Larger lines with 3 and smaller details with one.

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / luggage tags/handle wraps -or- "oh THERE's my bag!" on: April 10, 2009 04:27:16 PM
I made these for my family and our upcoming trip to hawaii... just a fun way to be able to identify your luggage among the 8 billion other bags on the carousel. I saw something like this for sale in a luggage store and thought it would be easy to whip up.

AND they are reversible! so that's fun... Smiley

9  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / tag design for crafty products on: April 10, 2009 04:17:50 PM
i threw together this design really quickly after I got my very first etsy order! I hadn't really thought about packaging or anything until I actually had someone order something... anyway, what do you think? Any tips or suggestions to make it better? I didn't want to be to specific in the products offered since my brain sorta wanders in and out of different craft 'specialties'.

Thanks for any comments or advice!

@coldweatherknitter - the stitch on the air cloud is called a velvet stitch... i guess technically it's a cross stitch technique? but I don't know any better really so I just used a similar technique to get the fluffiness... I just wanted fluffiness... so I just searched around until I found something that I thought would work.
