241  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Super Mario Cross Stitch on: January 29, 2009 03:39:02 PM

This is for my husband for Valentine's Day.  I was cross stitching one day, and he said how cross stitch would be perfect for 8-bit designs.  So, to show that he has a point and further his geeky collection of stuff I make for him, I cross stitched up some Super Mario goodness.

Apparently there's some law that says all 4x4 picture frames have to be as girly as possible.  So I matted it, and it will reside in a plain black 5x7 frame.

I'm on a roll with my embroidery here! 

I made this for my husband.  The flag of the straw hat pirates.

243  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Valentine's Redwork on: January 19, 2009 03:12:44 PM
I love birds, and I've recently started to do needlework again.  What better way to but the two together than with some redwork valentines?

Cute little birds

Single bird


They will be in little frames eventually.  All I had were ugly gold ones and they're in the process of being painted red.
244  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Question About Redwork on: January 18, 2009 07:39:27 AM
I dabbled a little in red work when I was younger.  It was so long ago that I can't remember much about it (took a short class at a sewing expo).  What kind of fabric is best to use?  I think I remember using muslin, but I was thinking linen might look nice.  What kind of stitch should I use?  Is it backstitch? 

Thanks for your help!
245  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Cross Stitched Potpourri Sachet on: January 17, 2009 10:23:15 PM
My grandma is going through some cancer treatment right now.  I live kind of far away, so it's hard to go visit.  She likes pretty things and smelly things, so I made her a potpourri sachet that I'm going to mail to her.  I hope it just makes her day.

I used yummy mulberry smelling potpourri. 

A close up of the pattern

I got the stitch design from an awesome book called "Medieval Cross Stitch Samplers" by Angela Wainwright.  I'm working on a bigger piece from the same book, and can't wait to share it here.

246  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Unseamly Sweater Question on: January 17, 2009 09:03:30 AM
I started making this sweater with a beautiful color in Caron's Simply Soft.  Problem is, the base row doesn't stretch at all.  I have huge hips and need a little stretch.  Has anyone made this sweater?  What yarn did you use?  Did you have enough stretch in the base row?
247  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Panda on: January 14, 2009 05:15:50 PM
I saw the book "Cute Dolls" at the store, and had to get it.  There are so many cute little animals in it!

This was my first time working with a jersey fabric and my first time sewing a stuffed animal (although I've crocheted plenty).

Meet Panda

So, how'd I do?

248  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Need Help with Evil Jersey Knit Fabric on: January 13, 2009 05:05:28 PM
I bought the book "Cute Dolls," which is so super awesome!  All of the dolls are made with jersey fabric (think t-shirt).  Apparently, grainline matters.  One of the colors I bought has no selvage and I cut it enough to not be able to tell which is the length and which is the width.  How do I find the grainline on a jersey knit fabric?
249  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Gifty Soap Set on: December 19, 2008 09:32:00 PM
I don't have a lot of money for gifts this year, but I have a lot of crafty stuff around the house.  When thinking of what in the world I could make my cousin, I came up with this.

The soap is just M&P glycerin.  I used some vitamin e oil and scented it with country apple.  I crocheted a wash cloth for her out of cotton yarn.  I think it's cute and wanted to show it off.

250  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Snow Princess Wrist Warmers on: December 16, 2008 09:07:44 PM
I had some Yarn Bee Cameo yarn laying around and thought it was cool.  I decided to make some wrist warmers.  I used my own pattern, and can post a tut if you like.
