Little embroidered things

Hi! I embroidered some little things yesterday. One is this patch of a pig with flowers tattooed in the butt.

The second is a brooch with one of the designs for the march Stitchalong of Feeling Stitchy. I love the balloons. I used felt pieces and I think that the result is fine. What do you think?

As Easter is approaching, I was making some bunnies. The first is a pin from Allsorts, and you find the free pattern here.
I love the movement of this bunny.

The second is a free pattern too! Yay! from Wild Olive. This pin is really cute, isn't it? Go here to make your own.

The last is from myself. I created the pattern in July 2010, is knitting flat and you can buy the pattern (instant download) on Ravelry for 3 USD or clicking this button:

Look her nice face! She's ready to make some friends and enjoy the next Easter.

Hi! Today I have this crocodile to share with you. To make your own you need download the pattern here or in the "freebie" section.
Transfer the pattern in your fabric and embroider with your favourites stitches.

I used chain stitch for the paunch, stem stitch for the body, back stitch for the mouth and satin stitch for the eyes.

Cut the fabric and other same size for the back (I like to use a different fabric).

Sew around except for the bottom. Make cuts in the corners and curves. Turn and stuff.
Close up with ladder stitch and Ta-da! Ready to play.

Rainy Day

Today is a rainy day in Bahía Blanca. It's good. It does not rain here often, we like the rain.
Is a perfect day to make some softie-friends, right Gatilda?

Roboto beep beep

I love to make this kind of softies, with a embroidered image. I doodle all time in my notebooks and use these drawings as inspiration for the dolls and toys that I do.
Robots are so much fun.

Yummy, yummy, cake!

"Feeling stitchy" turns 5
years and to celebrate with his readers suggested a stitch along during march with birthday designs. I chose this nice cake.

Then I thought to make a banner to decorate my house in birthdays time.
Do you want to embroider one? Visit Feeling stitchy and download the design by Mollie Johanson here.

Mug Rug

Very cute, isn't? When I saw this tutorial in the blog "Wild Olive" I thought "I want to make one!" and yesterday I did it.
Now that Iḿ learning to use the sewing machine I'm surprise about the fast you can do little projects like this.
For the appliquè of the tea bag I followed this tutorial. It was a bit difficult but the result is great.

I'm very happy with the result, like this nice and friendly embroidered sewing machine. Now I have a cute and big pin cushion for all my needles.
The design is by Mollie Johanson of Wild Olive, again, and you find it here.

Tea time embroidery

In few days the Fall come(
I live in Argentina, in the southern hemisphere), and now I remember how much like me drink tea in cold days. With the intention to add a bit of "glamour" to my tea time, I embroidered this little cup to make a coaster. Problem: result so much cute to put a cup on! So, I decided included it in another project.

I haven't any apron. Since a few time I want to sew one. Then, I think that the nice embroidered cup of tea could decorate one of the pockets. For the another, I embroidered the cupcake. They're a perfect and delicious couple, aren't?

The designs are very cute and... free! The awesome designer is Mollie Johanson from Wild Olive, and she have a lot of freebies in her blog, but if you want to find these two designs, the cup of tea is here, and the cupcake here.

Meet Gatilda! She's a friendly cat that was born during my vacations. When I spend some days in my grandparents house I decided make a toy with a vintage look. And I love cats. Here is the result.
