1  embroidered necklace help in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by tighttights on: December 19, 2013 08:50:03 AM
I have done a search on this website as well as a general Internet search and I can not find any instructions on how to make these necklaces.  I want to make some for gifts but I am clueless on how to take my embroidery and turn it into a necklace. I don't want to use a setting and that is really the only tutorials I can find. If anyone has made these types of necklaces or knows somewhere where I could find instruction I will be eternally grateful!! I've included pictures on the type of necklace I'm talking about! Smiley thank you everyone for all the help I have gotten from you guys in the past!!

3  Lucia's baby blanket! in Crochet: Completed Projects by tighttights on: October 17, 2010 03:19:24 PM
My sister is due to have her birthday any day now (she is already almost a week past her due date!) and so I have been in a rush trying to get her baby blanket done.  This is the third baby blanket that I have started for her.  The first blanket I started I had to abandon because I accidentally bought yarn from two different dye lot numbers.  Then the second I pulled apart because I read the pattern wrong and it ended up HUGE and I was running out of time and yarn.  So this is the third blanket that I started on...but I finished this one.  I love the way it turned out.  I wish that I had done one that was more solid since it will be winter soon, but I am not too worried about it since we live in the south and the days here are still reaching the upper 80s or even 90s in October!! But I got the pattern from the book 'Circular Baby Afghans' by Rebecca Leigh and the color is a light pink.  Please I would love to hear what you guys think!! And I know that my sister would love it if you could all send some labor vibes her way hahahaha!!! She hasn't seen the blanket yet so hopefully she will like it *fingers crossed*

anyway sorry for being so wordy...I hope you like the blanket  Grin Tongue

4  Some presents for people I love!!! Image heavy!! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by tighttights on: October 17, 2010 02:04:40 PM
These are some animals that I have crocheted for gifts in the past and I am finnaly getting around to sharing them with you guys!! I would love to hear what you guys think  Grin Grin

This is a gift that I made my best friend who lives in Indiana.  I went to visit her and this is what I made her as an 'I miss you tons' gift!!  I modified a unicorn pattern to make it.

This is a birthday gift that I made for my niece.  She fell in love with my dog, phoebe, who is a toy poodle.  Her mom won't let her have a dog until she is 13 so I made her her very own Phoebe dog Smiley

For my nephew's birthday I wanted to make him something that was fit for a super cool skateboardin, surfing, dirt bike riding little boy so I thought that I would make him a dragon.  I think that it turned out awesome...even if it did almost kill my hands making it lol!!!

Thanks soo much for taking a look and I would love to hear what you guys think.  I got the dragon pattern somewhere on Craftster but I can't remember where, but thanks so everyone on Crafter for patterns, feedback and inspiration! Love you guys soo much!!!

5  Fan and Petal Neck Lace! in Crochet: Completed Projects by tighttights on: July 12, 2009 06:51:53 PM
Hey! I just finished this tonight. It took me forever (mainly because I kept putting it down to pick up my book...im a little ADD Grin) I made it for a friend of mine who graduated grad school in May...its going to be a bit late. But I think that she will like it. It was made from the pattern in the interweave crochet magazine the spring 2009 issue.

The camera made the color look different in some of the pictures but the second and third pictures are  pretty accurate.

This is my first project that wasn't a blanket, scarf, or hat. I hope you like it!

C&C welcome!  Smiley

7  My mixed media final project *img heavy* in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by tighttights on: October 13, 2008 10:05:40 PM
So this summer I took a mixed media class and for my final project I wanted to ask the question, "Is it art?"

I believe that art is defined differently by every person.  What is art to one may not be art to another.  So I took images from a high fashion magazine and printed them onto fabric.  I then made a dress and got a friend of mine to wear it to the local bar and I asked people there, "Is the dress art?" and recorded their answers.  I only allowed people to answer yes or no because I knew that with me, the artist, sanding there they wouldnt want to hurt my feelings by just plan saying no...they would want to explain (people can be so nice but i needed real answers  Cheesy )

Anyway in my class we talked about how if the dress was displayed in the on campus art gallery that most people would just accept it as art and not question it.  That is why I took it out to the bar so that I could get answers from people who werent art students and who wouldnt really be influenced by where the dress was. 

I got a lot of yes's which kinda surprised me (I thought all the dunk people wouldbe more of a 'no' crowd lol) but it was soo much fun having to ask all the people.

Any-hoo sorry for rambling on and on...its what I do   Wink  But here are some pictures of my dress I made...

This is the front of the dress:

This is a close up of the front top:

This is a close up of the front bottom:

This is the sides:

Im a graphic designer and not a great sewer so excuse the bad job on making the dress...and my messy dorm room Grin

I would love to know what you guys think.
