41  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / firsts - hoodie on: June 03, 2007 10:17:31 PM

this is my first post to the regular completed projects (most of my embroidery so far has been sublime stuff).  This was also my first time embroidering on heavy black stretch knit and my first time using iron on tear away stablizer (from sublime) and the first hoodie I've embroidered

I printed the images off the internet the dinosaur was from a coloring book page and the letter was some kind of gothic font.  

The stars are right above the left pocket and the dinosaur is on the right side diagonal from the stars.  The initials are on the back where they can be conveniently hidden by the hood if anonimity is important.  Sorry I didn't get an action shot before I mailed it away  Roll Eyes

It was very challenging working with the black but I put the design on the stablizer and kind of worked backward and I think it turned out okay in the end.  

42  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Halsey & Lantern (img heavy) on: April 25, 2007 11:46:51 AM
Hi Everyone,

Wanted to share these.  I have been working on them while I was waiting to get my swap items in the mail!  They are 2 tea towels both with Sublime designs one from the new book and the other from the Kurt Halsey patterns.

I have to say I am the most proud of the dragonfly I created using lazy daisy and finding a color that really reminds me of dandelion stems.  I want to thank floresita for the inspiration using the scallop stitch on the banner!  I had some trouble doing the bamboo stitch correctly and finally decided I like doing it better the wrong way (backstitching the longstitch) but I'm glad I finally got to use all of them!

I don't know if anyone else uses them but my secret weapon when it comes to tracing are overhead transparencies (it's how I worked out the banner).  I make the design on one of them and it allows for alot of accuracy and flexibility when you are tracing and I find it protects the tracing paper when I am ready to put it on to the fabric.

Hey Everyone,

My lucky friends are headed on a girl's trip to Mexico and I wanted them to remember me so I put on my craft cap and this is what I came up with.  I've decided felt is mostly evil to embroider but I got the shoe fixer guy to put in the eyelets for me and he rocks!  I put a laminated address card on the inside.

They attach easily with plastic cable ties from the dollar store.

Hope you like them!  


44  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / tea towels on: December 27, 2006 09:31:39 AM
Hi Everyone,

These are two tea towels I recently completed.  The teapot and cup was done with 3 strand and the cupcake six.  I was determined not to satin stitch the cherry and worked out a way to "weave" the threads...I should have taken a picture of the back because there were no long threads this way-which is more suitable for working tea towels!  Many thanks to sewasabi for her swirl inspiration - I did my own version in "buttercream"!


45  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / on fire & meows tea towels on: October 31, 2006 03:52:20 PM
Hi Everyone,

These are some of my first projects...I think the part I've enjoyed the most about the patterns is that they don't tell you what stitch or color to use..it makes me think a little and makes them feel more personal than regular patterns.

The chain stitch is not my best friend but overall I am pleased with the results.

I did the Martini, then Cat Face and then Pretty Kitty...they have all gone as gifts and it was a great way to justify watching tv and not exercising!  

46  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / desperately seeking cowgirl on: September 21, 2006 12:22:55 AM

I'm new to here and to embroidery and I was wondering if anyone has a picture of the cowgirl (from the Country Cool set) they've completed.  The one post on here that mentioned it the pictures didn't work.

The reason I ask is that I'm not sure if I'm ready for it...it has the more detail than the ones I've tried before this and I'm not sure what stitches will work best.
