61  Opabinia Regalis will kick your butt! (also charmander and squirtle) in Needlework: Completed Projects by bleachrainbow on: January 01, 2007 10:02:16 PM
So I'm home from college, and really, the only things to do are watch the Discovery Channel and sew.

Thus you get this unholy union of the two:

Opabinia Regalis! A fun little organism from the Cambrian Explosion. No one really knows what's going on with the trunk. Or the five eyes, but there you are. If I get enough time, I'd like to do more Cambrian creatures and make a wall hanging.

And on the Pokemon Needlepoint Challenge:

I recently completed Charmander and Squirtle...working on Ivysaur right now. Starting to run out of yarn though, anyone know where I could get assortments of it? I don't need very much of any one color. (I've kinda exhausted the thrift stores roundabouts.)

ps: not letting me post pictures at the moment, is that new?

62  pokemon needlepoint! in Needlework: Completed Projects by bleachrainbow on: December 14, 2006 09:53:50 AM

My latest and greatest project. I want to do all 150.

(only posting this in 'completed' because several are finished, and it'll be a looong time before I hit 150! Since taking this picture, I've finished Charmander and am working on Squirtle!)

If you'd like to watch the progress, I'm sure I'll update on my lj: the_broad

63  my portofolio works--two skirts and a flap-hat in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by bleachrainbow on: December 17, 2005 01:03:19 PM
Hallo! I'm new here, but I've been making stuff forever. Just thought I'd share some of my latest work since I had to take a ton of pictures for my portfolio (applying to college, wish me luck!)

My bud Lea modeling a neat little pleated/lacey wrap skirt thingy I made for her. It goes around your waist twice, and you can wrap it different ways for different effects.

The back (though it really doesn't have a back and front)

My other bud Jenny wearing a flap-hat I constructed with much trial and error. Who knew that cardboard might be a bit problematic in a sewing machine? It has a little buckle on the other side and can be secured under your chin if you are flying a biplane or some such.

^^^Both of the two above were part of my 'steampunkish' collection...there was also a neat corset-piece, but I lost the photo.

And Jenny one more time, with a ruffly, pooftastic skirt inspired by lolita lines--but with a bit more color!

64  bunny and mushroom crewel-work bags, and embroidered shoes in Needlework: Completed Projects by bleachrainbow on: December 17, 2005 12:49:18 PM
Hallo! I'm new to craftster, but I've been doing all sorts of craftiness for a long time...I love buying old crewel kits (they don't seem to sell them around here anymore, so I kinda have to) and making completely different things out of them. I mostly work freehand, I draw a little on the fabric as a guideline...

My birdie shoes...I got the black mary janes at K-mart for $7 bucks and went to town. It was really difficult getting the needle through the canvas (I had to use pliers, actually) but I like how they came out, I wear them alot...

Bunny-bag--the rabbit was inspired by a little detail in the Book of Kells (I love illuminated manuscripts)

Detail! The different stitches don't show up too well with my camera though...

And a little mushroom bag.

I've got lots of bags like these laying around...I can't sell them, because in order to cover the hours working on them, I'd have to charge a ton...><; Oh well, I like to do it, it keeps me busy during school.
