21  xstitch stocking in Needlework: Completed Projects by Mrsblocko on: December 03, 2007 01:46:51 PM
Here is a stocking I made for my husband.  I made the mistake of not putting interfacing on the back side of the linen.  The back has green corderoy.  I had planned on putting some sort of piping on but I got lazy/sick of working on it.

I don't know if you can tell but the candles and their flames on the xmas tree are beads.

23  Re: The Long Awaited Poppet-Along in Craftalongs by Mrsblocko on: November 16, 2007 10:55:59 AM
Here's my first poppet, a gift for my 7yo neice.  This was the most complicated plush toy I've ever made.  I've formed a new bond with my seam ripper.  oh seam ripper, how do I love thee!!!

I think maybe she has too much hair, or i stuffed the head too full, or both.  Her head is soooo floppy.  I even removed and reattached the head so more of the neck stump was inside the head.  Any idea of what I could do on the next poppet to prevent said floppiness?

24  halloween cross stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by Mrsblocko on: November 01, 2007 11:32:17 AM
Here is a cross stitch I finished last week.  I wanted to do something to get me in the spirit of halloween.  I substituted most of the threads and beads for what I had in my stash.  I still haven;t figured out what I'm going to do with it yet.

26  headband in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Mrsblocko on: September 24, 2007 07:29:54 AM
Just a little headband I made this spring using heather bailey's headband tutorial from here: http://www.heatherbaileydesign.com/Headband.html

I made a few for myself but they don't look nearly as cute on me.

27  placemats in Quilting: Completed Projects by Mrsblocko on: September 24, 2007 07:19:09 AM
I was inspired by ChaeleaAnne's super sweet table runner. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=129930.0

It's not nearly as cool, not even by half. I did learn lots of things, so at least there's that. 

This was the first thing I actually quilted with batting instead of flannel. I made it on my ancient craptastic sewing machine that eats fabric like nobody's business.  (The machine is slated to be retired a la the printer on office space.) I feel it is no small miracle that I actually finished one, let alone 4.

The finished strips are 1/2 inch, and it was not paper pieced.  I machine quilted each one differently for experiment sake.  The color combination is weird, but it's so crazy I can't help but giggle when I look at it.  Something much needed at the dinner table when the 2 yr old is screaming/whining/crying/behaving like a 2 yr old.

Hope you like it and its strange strangeness. Cheesy

28  more jeans embroidery in Needlework: Completed Projects by Mrsblocko on: July 30, 2007 04:46:43 PM
I was wanting something Potter-eque to wear to the 7th book release so i added this patch to some jeans i had.  (I had stitched on the butt pockets and posted them eariler here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=182476.0)

I used someone's tatoo I found on google as my guide.

The jeans had developed a hole on the other knee so I put a patch of pirate fabric on the inside.  I thought that was kind of boring, so I added the saying to it.

and here's the whole thing:

29  jean pockets in Needlework: Completed Projects by Mrsblocko on: July 11, 2007 09:07:22 AM
I had a pair of old jeans I thought were pretty blah.  I managed to not stitch the pockets closed, which was much more of a challenge than I originally expected.   The winged heart and the outline of the skull I got from a stencil website someone posted on here a while ago.  (Possibly the Stencilry?)  The skull decoration was inspired from various sugar skull images. 

I plan on adding more embroidery to this pair of jeans in the future as soon as I have the time and inspiration.

what instead of lacing it like this:

You laced it like this:

You just overlap the 2 parts to be lace.  If you took a cross section through the fabric and lacing it would look like figure 8's on end to end. You could lose about 2 inches that way, depending on how far into the bodice your grommets were inset.
