Wow. Did you draw this freehand?
I never would have thought to embroider on vinyl... I could do some crazy stuff on clear vinyl and then use it to cover my couch.
In an ironic kind of way.

I"m not sure if I understand what you mean by blind? Dumb question, I know. Smiley
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / "Pin up girl with lipstick" - admit it, you've stitched her! (NSFW) on: June 24, 2008 08:36:04 PM
Some images in this thread may be NSFW due to sexual innuendo...

Aww heck, who am I kidding? I hang out on this board to check out the awesome retro video games and sexy needlework!  Grin

I've stitched her, have you?

If you have yet to meet her (I wonder what her name is?) you can download the free pattern here:


And Drewzel over on Stitchy Britches has a post on the origins of the pattern, plus the debate (and vote, if I remember correctly) on what it REALLY is that she's holding and what does the phrase on the original pattern mean:


I especially love the extra cut-outs so you can pad her butt. Awesomeness!

Please post your interpretations here!

She's hott! And I agree with Kittykill, there should be a thread of the Lipstick Lady. I've done her (hee!) and many others have too!  I've played around with the other images in the series too to make them all sorta "light bondage" girls... it's a fun series. I'm sure not what the original designer ever had in mind!

Right ON! This is fantastic! I can't wait to see a quilt!
6  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Old issues of Playgirl - Craft Suggestions PLEASE!!! on: June 24, 2008 07:25:18 PM
I was at a friend's cottage and her PARENTS had a drink tray that was podged with tons of Playboy images, but just the line drawings and comics. It was terribly cute and sexy without being offensive to those who don't like boobies.

I would also check out the books "Pad" and "Pad Parties", which both have great ideas for reusing vintage magazines. I remember one was using old swingers magazine ads and image transferring them onto cocktail napkins.

It's true that I'm breaking the set apart but I do have two full sets. One that I'm keeping, because I've always wanted a set. The other I've crafted with, but keeping them cards still usable. I made a large tablecloth with a bunch of them with clear plastic so the cards can still be used, read and admired.

I also want to make something out of these cards for her because I know she'll use the fondue recipes. I think it's best to give that section to someone who will actually cook from them!

I couldn't imagine cutting up my own collection of cards and cookbooks, regardless if its art! :-)
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: What can you make with embroidered scraps? on: June 24, 2008 07:00:33 PM
I'd make the tiny ones into buttons, and then use them to replace the boring buttons on my favorite coats and sweaters.
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Ow! My most of me! on: June 24, 2008 06:35:21 PM
So, I didn't think this one through very well. I was real excited about making a Teen Girl Squad scarf:

The problem is, the back is AWFUL:

I used tearaway stablilizer (boo!) and can't get it all off without pulling threads. Even if I could, it doesn't look very neat back there.

I was going to stitch it along the length into a tube to hide it? Is there a more clean and good-looking design sorta way to make this wearable and viewable?

BTW: The design in done on a thin white cotton jersey scarf, so it's pretty see-thru.

If you've never seen these types of cards, Candyboots has a hi-LAR-ious tour for you - these ones are Weight Watchers cards:


I'd like to make a present for a friend of mine, using only the fondue ones, as that's how we met. (awww.)

I'm stumped for ideas. All I can think of is making placemats with them. She's crafty, so she'd appreciate the craftyness, but I really want to blow her mind. Like the fondue recipe cards won't do that already...
