1  Re: Embroidery Hoopla R3 - OTT Edition Gallery in The Swap Gallery by IamSusie on: January 25, 2011 09:18:04 AM
I received last week from Pugwash.  Look what she stitched for me:

Mario games are my absolute favorite.  I love it, Pugwash!

It's extra appropriate because I stitched up a little Mario for her.  Cheesy

What a fun swap!

2  Small Treat Totes in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by IamSusie on: December 09, 2010 11:23:33 AM
I used the pattern from the Fall 2010 issue of Quilts and More.  They posted the pattern:

You can get four simple small totes from two fat quarters.  I really love simple projects from fat quarters. 

I don't know what I will use them for, but they will probably come in handy over the holidays.

I received yesterday from luckdragon!  She stitched up a pair of adorable children for me:

Look at the beautiful french knots and the pretty texture of the girls hair!

The little sailor boy's pants are crayon tinted.  It's so cute..

Thank you so much, luckdragon, I love it!   Kiss

4  Ice Cream Cone Halloween Costume in Halloween Costumes by IamSusie on: October 17, 2010 11:31:34 AM

I made my daughter this Ice Cream Cone costume from a pattern in Better Homes and Gardens Special Interest Publications for Halloween 2010.  

It turned out great and I can't believe that I finished it two weeks early!  She picked it out and the instructions in the magazine were absolutely terrible.  The first problem was that the pattern was extremely small, like baby sized and so I had to use some trial and error to figure out how much to enlarge it for my 10 year old.  Fortunately, I am kind of experienced, so I figured out what to do.

I love the cherry on top headband:

I used synthetic ecofelt for the whole thing.  I think it all cost less than 10 dollars because I had an old sweatshirt from a past halloween costume waiting to be used.

Thanks for looking!  Happy Halloween!  Smiley

5  South African Girls Embroidery in Needlework: Completed Projects by IamSusie on: May 07, 2010 12:17:35 PM
My mom got this kit for me several years ago when we were browsing a large quilt show.


It came from THIS COMPANY.  This project is the one that got me started in embroidery several years ago.  I'd done lots of cross stitch years ago and gave that up for a quilting obsession that lasted for awhile.  I also learned the chain stitch when I did this project and that has since become my very favorite stitch.

I had this about 3/4ths done for several years and decided this Mothers Day was finally the time for me to get it all finished up. She's known about it all these years and when she redecorated her living room recently after an actual trip to South Africa, she mentioned it and I promised that soon she would be totally surprised when I'd present her with the cutest pillow ever.  

 I used the threads that came with the kit.  They are not quite pearl cotton and are of varying thicknesses and are quite fuzzy.  I really like the way the stitching looks on the black background.  This pillow is looking really cute on my own living room sofa, so it will be hard to give away!

6  Crochet Mouse Bib and Bunny Hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by IamSusie on: April 26, 2010 08:58:24 AM
I crocheted some projects from this book Cuddly Crochet: Adorable Toys, Hats, and More

The book has very cute projects for babies.  I used Red Heart Acrylic for my projects, so they are sturdy, but they need a wash to soften the yarn.

I'd totally make some of the afghans in the book if I thought I would actually finish a whole afghan!

7  Mario 1-Up Mushroom in Quilting: Completed Projects by IamSusie on: November 24, 2009 11:54:15 AM
I made this piece of geekery for a product review.  I was trying out Quilters Interfacing which is interfacing with grid lines to facilitate the making of watercolor quilts or pixelated quilts.

You may not already know this, but when googling pixelated video game images, the term "sprite" is very useful.

Here is a 1-Up mushroom form Super Mario.  Catch him and you get an extra life!

If you are highly motivated, you can read my product review at Craft Critique HERE.

Quilters Interfacing is found near the cutting table with the other interfacings at your sewing shop.  I found it really easy to use, except that trimming and pressing the seam allowances is a pain.  My mushroom is made on a 2 inch grid.  The finished pixels are 1.5 inches after sewing.  You ciuld also do this really small with the 1-inch gridded interfacing so that you end up with 1/2 inch pixels.

8  Snowflake Crochet Pillow in Crochet: Completed Projects by IamSusie on: November 24, 2009 11:45:02 AM

This pattern was in my Nov/Dec 2008 issue of Crochet Today.  I thought it would be easy, but that snowflake was tricky!  I stopped trying to use the written out pattern and switched to the pattern chart and it was a lot easier. 

Thank goodness for pattern charts!  Mine is made with Red Heart Acrylic, but the white is some sort of unknown fuzzy stuff I had lying around. 

I found the pattern online here, except that it seems like that is only the materials and not actually the pattern:

My towel came home to me this weekend!

Isn't it beautiful?  I love it!  There is even a little spot for me to add a nice floral motif of my own.  Thanks so much, Kitten Wrangler, ritapizza, Pearliepie, j_q_adams, and sarahj2001!

awesome  things but i would like to see the pics

Oh, they were awesome!  Sadly, this post is three years old and people eventually let their photo host subscriptions lapse...

I did a google image search "perler bead video game crafts":

The pictures were along those lines.   Smiley
