2  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / EnTIES - Stitched ties for Entice. on: April 28, 2007 06:19:39 PM

I made these two for My favorite members of the band Entice -
Check 'em out!  ENTICE

I used Rock n' Roll patterns and a transferred image of their logo.  I had to take apart the back stitches of the ties, and sew it back together, which was more of a pain than I intended. . but overall, I'm satisfied.

Whatd'ya think?

4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Mixed CD Christmas Party Favors (complete w/ photos) on: December 01, 2006 11:20:35 AM
I'm having a Christmas Party . . I made these cute!cute!cute! CD covers to hold a Christmas CD as a party favor. . . I found a template for the CD cover from Mirkwood Designs and tweaked it a bit, to make it more like an envelope. I made the cases from craft paper from the dollar store and embellished them with pretty Christmas ribbon. The stamp I used for the year is a vintage price stamp from a yard sale. The stained design was my first attempt, but I don't *love* the way it looks, it's a little too fussy for what I was trying to do. I absolutely LOVE the way they're turning out. . .but I can't decide which design is better.

The hardest part of the project was keeping the paper from rolling back into the shape of the craft paper roll. . so I put a stack of them in a 200 degree oven for about 10 minutes, flattened between parchment paper and 2 cookie sheets with a pizza stone to weigh them down, then cooled, still between the 2 sheets. . .they came out perfectly flat. To finish, I folded, glued, stamped, hole punched and ribboned them. . .very fast, easy, and cheap (my favorite part). . .not to mention, adorable! To stain the edges of the 'envelopes' I rubbed the base of a stamp pad lightly over the edges, first with red and then a very light swipe of black, for shadow. I can't take credit for that technique though, I saw it on the Carol Duvall show (DIY network). . . Wink
5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / GUMI CHOCO ORANGE! on: November 21, 2006 06:07:09 PM

My husband bought me this adorable candy from our local Asian market. . .when I first saw it, I immediately made plans to turn this guy into Amigurumi. Using scrap yarn, a few bits of felt and simple embroidery I had my very own GUMI CHOCO ORANGE!!  He measures about 3 inches around, and is my first original Amigurumi.  I hope you like it!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Felted Baby Yoda Hat (FREE PATTERN LINK!!) on: November 06, 2006 04:41:34 PM
I made up this pattern for a Felted Baby Yoda Hat.  It was a spur-of-the-moment fluke that turned out to be totally awesome, so I wrote down what I did so I could share it with THE WORLD!!

Felted Baby Yoda Hat

The pattern was inspired by my Dad.  After knitting a Baby Yoda Sweater for my new little brother, he suggested I make a Yoda hat for him, for a Halloween costume.  Unfortunately, I didn't finish it in time, but I'm sure the effort will be appreciated... Roll Eyes

If you knit this, show me a picture, I'd LOVE to see it!!

ETA:  The pattern also has a short tutorial on stiffening the ears to avoid flopping!
7  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / First Timer on: August 21, 2006 02:28:14 PM
I bought the Stitch-it Kit on Friday.  By the end of the day, Saturday, I finished this sweet little towel.  I tried many of the different stitches in the booklet, and also made a silly mistake of using the same vine pattern for both sides rather than the mirror image, but I like the way it turned out.  I used a different green thread than what came with the kit, i just liked the dark green better.
