1  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / first try at embroidery EVER!! (alien-looking fairy) on: May 18, 2009 07:59:08 PM
SOo i love all things that involve needles and any type of string. I knit, crochet, & sew soo i wanted to tackle yet another needle craft. I bought the sublime stitching craft pad and got going! and let me just say i am in love Smiley i plan to buy all the books and even the starter kit to get the cute pink scissors and another pattern.
this is my first try, i practiced on horrible fabric cause i couldn't find anything else! its like a thermal fabric soo stretchy! so i put iron on interfacing on the backside cause that's the only thing i had laying  around, it helped a little bit.

the picture didn't iron well cause the fabric was bumpy that's why her face isn't like the original picture i kinda just had to go with it & try and make her still look cute... oh yeah i didn't quite finish the little X's and dots but eh its just practice. 

comments/criticism welcome!

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / first post ever. new leopard purse on: August 06, 2007 10:12:18 PM
Well.. this is my first post ever.obviously but ive been a long time admirer tho'. i was always just too scared to actually post something of mine on here. until now i finally got the courage to do it!!
well this purse is actually for my grandma. she bought the fabric and everything and kept insisting me to finally get around to do it and i finally did because i found out shes leaving to mexico this week and i want to give it to her before she goes. especially because shes been really sick lately from her high blood preassure and god forbid anything happens to her before i have a chance to give it to her.

well the pattern is actually from here but i dont remember the persons name (sorry) ill look for it tho' i think it was called pleated purse tutorial...i changed it a bit just in size the outer fabric was kindof silky and very thin..kinda hard to work with.

sorry for the pic quality i took it on my phone  Smiley
Heres a pic of the inside zippered pocket

i didnt take an" action shot" because i look like crap right now sry.....being that i havent made any tags yet i embroidered my name on the inside but i couldnt take a pic cause my phones memory was full Undecided but take my word on it its all bad but ehh my grandma wont mind.
well watcha think?.be nice plz Grin
