Fishy

Well I’m doing some more embroidery. These won’t be lavender sachets, I don’t think. But I did give away a good many of those.

This is just for pleasure. I’m using an old cushion cover of linen that I bought second hand for the sachets. Since the yarn is second hand as well I don’t really know what it is, doesn’t feel or act like silk, and to be honest I didn’t like the colors either, but was surprised how good it came out. Thinking I might make a breast fin as an appliqué, but not sure how to yet.

This one is made with regular cotton yarn. I like the sixties feel of the color comination. Needs a face, or at least an eye, though.

Christmas sweater

Paddy K has talked about a Christmas sweater for years, and i wanted to make him one, but every year the time before Christmas was waaaay to short for me to knit one.

Last year, I came up with the idea of buying a second hand sweater and doing embroidery onto it, but again the time, the time…

So this year ( I mean in time for last Christmas) I figured I would get the sweater and some decorations and sew them on. I found some santa hats, socks, a bow all of it in thrift shops, and set to work.

I was really pleased with my idea and the result. Then a few days before the day, a craft store in stockholm sent home a catalog where you could buy a DIY set for exactly the same thing! Well, at least mine was original.

This christmas, I’m giving away 10 me-made things. 5 are finished (more or less), 3 under way and two not even started. Since the gifts are to be opened on christmas eve and I’ll be travelling the 23d, well…I’ve for quite a long time now realized that I’ll have to give away things under construction and finish them afterwards.

I found this Hello Kitty sheet in a thrift store, thinking I’d make a shirt out of it. Then I realized I could ask the reciever if they wanted the sheet the way it is, or a shirt. Thereby hiding an 11th not started gift in a finished one. I’m so clever.
