1  Cordelia/Bufy/Navajo cross stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by pipkin2020 on: June 06, 2010 01:26:10 PM
Mix my genres? Hell yes. Made this as a birthday present for my brother; he loves Buffy, always looks after others before himself, and is currently exiled from his beloved New Mexico. All boxes ticked Smiley   
Kind of copied the border from a Navajo woven cushion cover I found a pic of - I think the pattern planning took longer than the actual stitching!
With thanks to @radicalxstitch for the font, which I adapted only slightly (to make it smaller)

Thanks for looking.  It's by no means perfect - I'm still new to this cross-stitch thing, but I'm loving the possibilities!

2  Further adventures with my Sharpies in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by pipkin2020 on: May 27, 2009 03:06:26 AM
Fabric pens, schmabric pens - I love my Sharpies! 

Picked up a plain green tee for my 4yr old in a charity shop (50p), and asked him what he wanted on it (he's already the proud owner of two Doctor Who tees https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=272465.msg3077662#msg3077662I did him last year).  He said BUGS!  So I asked him to draw me some, and then copied said critters onto said tee.  Ta da! Kids' drawings are always way cooler than adults'  Grin  (OK I did copy the pics a little tidier, but not much)

and it even has a ladybird logo!  A weird, spinning head ladybird, but hey  Roll Eyes

I'm going to get him to design me some cushion covers next, I think...  Grin

3  Doctor Who T-shirts - tracing with Sharpies! :D in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by pipkin2020 on: October 07, 2008 08:50:43 AM
 OK so these were too simple to put on the clothes board, I'd feel embarrassed!  This is 'make do with what you have' image reproduction using a pc and printer, an improvised light-box (glass-topped coffee table with a lamp underneath!) and a Sharpie.  I feel pathetically proud.

Step 1: Find good, simple/bold image
Step 2: Scale to required size
Step 3: Print
Step 4: Trace onto desired fabric

Ta-da!  My son's favourite shirts Smiley  For the lettering I found a cool font, printed an alphabet, and traced each letter. 

and they've stood up very well to repeated washing, too!  When they say permanent, they mean it  Grin

4  Rasterbation - do it for the kids in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by pipkin2020 on: August 02, 2008 01:59:25 AM
I love the Rasterbator, but it was only last week I finally got round to putting this up in the kids' room.  It's a bit wibbly coz it's only stuck up with blu-tac, but hey, we all love it!  It's in the attic on a slopey ceiling, and each sheet is A4, to give you an idea of the size.  It's right in front of you as you come up the stairs.

Yup, it's Princess Nausicaa. Phoo to Disney princesses, we know who the true heroines are Wink
