1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help drafting a pattern from line drawings? on: February 05, 2011 12:47:11 PM
Hi everyone,

I was just wondering if anyone has drafted up a pattern using the line drawings on the back of sewing patterns. I just want to know if its possible, how hard it is, any experiences? I'm a very novice sewer, and i have my heart set on a certain vintage pattern that is almost impossible to find (or very expensive) I have photos of the line drawing on the back of the package and im hopeful that i can concoct a way to use that as a pattern.... any help is appreciated Smiley

My most recent embroidery project, which i will be giving to my lovely bf.
He was quick to stitch up and i love this episode, one of my favorite ned sayings.

Poor neddy, his beatnik parents were too rough on him:

in case its difficult to tell, it reads 'whoopsie doodle ... '

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / professional looking fabrics for a purse and wallet?? on: November 12, 2009 07:18:30 AM
Hi all!

I've been meaning to make myself a purse and wallet that have more of a modern look to them rather than a fun purse which I have already (not that I dont like fun prints on a purse) Tongue but i'm at a loss to which fabric i can use. Ive been searching around for contemporary prints, possible in black or brown but cant seem to find the right one. Does anyone have any suggestions, have fabric you love, or recommend a good fabric site? Ive been looking into home decor fabric, maybe ikea fabric....

...well technically I made a Viking, but he is based on NeedleNoodles' Valkyrie pattern: http://needlenoodles.com/home/?q=node/111. He was slightly modified for a manlier look, since my friend specifically requested a manly Viking. The pattern is an expansion pack to Creepy Cute Crochet and I think its my most favorite yet Smiley

here he is:

8  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / bots in space! on: October 07, 2008 05:21:00 PM
Hi all!

I've been busy procrastinating and not studying (school just started so im slooowly adapting back to classes all day) and what better way to procrastinate than to stitch up something cool to decorate my space in my new apartment. I modified the robot from the sublime stitching spaced out pattern slightly and I like how happy he looks. I used glittery black felt which looks awesome. now all i need is a cool frame so he can go on my wall...

pictures kinda lame, phone camera but its all i got ; _ ;
