My next project!!

I have though long and hard about what I want to do after  I have stitched all the Star Sign, and I came up with this

Her Name is Faythe and I have many more Little Cat people in the works ready to be drawn and changed into a cross stitch. I may change the design a bit when I get to stitching it, but for now here is the initial idea. 

and this is Fly, she is my Favourite one at the minute. These are the only two I have for now my I have many more in the pipe line. 
Watch this space!

Plastic Canvas Coasters

Here are a few coaters ideas I wanted to try out, I like having sets of thing so if I can make the pattern match when I am designing them, thats even better.

Friday, 21 August 2015


On the the next Sign, heres is the initial idea for Scorpio. I couldn't decide which way round to have the patterns, so in the end I swapped them because I think that looks better. The colours are pretty much the same though.

Plastic canvas Keyrings

been doing some experimenting with plastic canvas, and seeing what sort of stitches come out the best using different types of thread. Here is the result below, some of there key rings I am really happy with.

I also had a go at making a bracelet as well, but I need a better way to fasten it so it doesn't come loose.

Gemini All Finished

Im really ahead of myself at the moment, here is the finished Gemini cross stitch. It takes me about two weeks from start to finished to get it done. But that is if I work in it every day and not have a day off. I thought this one would be the longest one to do as it has a really thick border. Anyway here is the finished piece!!

Tuesday, 23 June 2015


After Taurus it Gemini so here is the next drawing for the Gemini cross stitch. The colours have stayed pretty much the same for the final thing.

New and improved Pokemon deck cases.

My friend asked me if I could make one of my Pokemon card deck boxes for him, so here is the one I did for him.

I wanted to be able keep this one closed so I sewed on a button and made a button hole on the lid so it keeps closed, but I like this ides so much that I did the sam on some of the ones that I had already made.

The first Baby Sampler drawing.

I have decides to do a few baby samplers for my brother. for the birth of his daughter. last year and his son this year, so first I started buy doing some drawings for them both.

I started with this one and created to other one around the same design. I wanted to used mainly soft primary colours. and making it quite simple as well.

Thunder Box

This was oridginally going to be a deck box but I decided that I already have enough of those. so I changed it to be a small box instead, to keep all my counters in it. 

As my favourite Pokemon type it Thunder, this is a great pattern to make. You could put any pattern on the front if you wanted.

Deck Box - Water

So we've had fire, grass and now water, so here is the pattern and the finished water deck box.

Friday, 1 May 2015

Deck Box - Grass

Here is another deck box I made, they are easy to do and only and few days to make. My plan is to make one for all the main types.

This one is thiner than the fire one as there is nothing on cards. Wanted the side to look like vines.

Riachu Pillow

I enjoyed making the Jolteon pillow so much, that I decided to make another one. This time of Riachu which is my other favourite Pokemon.

I went through the same process as the Jolteon Pillow.

Deck Box - Fire

As I had a lot of stuff left over from making my bookmark, I though I would have a go at making something in 3D, As I have a lot of Pokemon cards that I use I came up with the idea of making deck boxes,

I had to make this one thicker as the cards have plastic cases on them. 

I matched the fire on the front with the fire on the energy card so there box matched the deck. 

Wednesday, 22 April 2015


As a quick little project I thought I would make myself a bookmark, and as a read a lot of books anyway I thought it was a good idea.  here is the pattern I used,

and here is the finished piece,

My Jolteon Pillow

As you may have guessed by now, I really love Pokemon. I especially like Jolteon, so I wanted to make something that I can use every day. so I made a latch hook pillow. I first started with the pattern, which I did on a large piece of graph paper. As my eyesight isn't very good I like things to be in larger print.

I like to do different things now and again, so I don't get bored with one thing so latch hook is the next best thing to cross stitch. When I finished latch hooking the whole thing I then brought a piece of strong fabric to use as a backing. Here is the finished pillow:

The Finished Capricorn

This is the finished Capricorn cross stitch all framed and is the first of twelve star sign pieces that I have designed by my self. any feedback would be really appreciated.

Friday, 10 April 2015


Now I have had a got a designing my own cross stitches based off things, it is time for me to start making my own from scratch, so for a simple idea I decided to start of with Star signs, so as of January 2015 I have been cross stitching them all in order starting with Capricorn. Here is the initial drawing for it,

My ideas tend to develop as I start putting it through Photoshop, and Mac Stitch (Which it my cross stitch pattern software)

Bulbasaur and Psyduck

This I did for a joint birthday present, as they both like Pokemon, and they are together so doing a picture of both there favourite Pokemon was a good idea. Here is the pattern and the finished piece. You can see it all framed in the Gallery.
