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.

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:

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.

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)
