Hats Off to Great Ideas

I made Sarah a cap that I finished this morning, and I think it suits her more than the sunhat I crocheted a while ago.

The pattern came from this book I borrowed from the library, though I did have to make it a little smaller, as Barbies are larger than Sarah.

Of course, BB8 wanted to try it on, and Sarah obliged…

It might be useful for keeping water out of the droid’s electronics, especially as it looks like it’s going to rain.

How adorable does BB8 look? This may be one of Sarah’s best ideas yet.

Anyways, see ya!

Embroidery Progress

I’ve made quite a bit of progress on the hoop since it’s last been up here.

I love how the leaves turned out, they look gorgeous!

I taught myself a new stitch to do this sheer purple shawl, though the stitch isn’t very sheer. It’s called ‘raised stem stitch’, and the idea was to make the fabric look sheer or woven, which satin stitch wouldn’t have achieved.

You can see why it’s called ‘raised stem stitch’! Looking back, I may need to put a little shading in, as the fabric is twisted like it’s been thrown in the air.

I also used a little metallic thread for the top hat and ribbons on the circus tent. I remembered the shading for the gold ribbons, thankfully!

Anyways, see ya!

Sword Polishing

I finished the old sword I was freshening up last weekend.

I wrapped the hilt with dark brown ribbon to look like leather, made the centre diamond shiny with glitter, and sealed all the paperboard bits, to make it more durable.

I believe I based it off Wonder Woman’s sword, but I really can’t be sure. I made it a very long time ago, and it really needed the fresh coat of paint!

Thankfully (or sadly), it doesn’t talk like Jack does from Magnus Chase. There’s enough loud, expressive personalities in one room without a talking sword as well, I think!

Anyways, see ya!

From Dream to Reality

I’m making progress on my embroidery hoop, though it feels like forever between  designing it and actually embroidering it.

The quote is from The Greatest Showman soundtrack, which I have stuck on a loop in my head.

It looks like a lot of blue at the moment, but those three lines are actually the only blue I’ll use in the whole embroidery.

I finished the words this morning, and began on the little motifs around the lyrics. At the base, there’s a little circus tent with two ribbons flying from the top, which I’ll embroider with metallic gold thread.

Anyways, see ya!
