This is the final cross stitch project I had planned (hooray, sez you?)I wanted to make a Scottie dog for my Australian cousin and this design caught my eye. Now I just have to decide what to turn it into. It measures about 4" wide. Any ideas???
- Have a look through the gallery of THIS amazing artist!
- And look at THIS! It's crocheted by an artist named Beata Bylinka. Unfortunately she only seems to have a presence on Facebook but at least this link shows just some of her work.
- There are a number of cute Halloween projects HERE.
Today's quote is from George Bernard Shaw..."Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance"
Not sure, but I think it would look really cute as an ornament.ReplyDelete
Love seeing all your needlework so hopefully you have lots more coming.
I thought of that too but I think it's a weeny bit large for that (it measures about 4"). And don't worry, there's plenty still left on my to do list!!ReplyDelete
Not sure she would want to poke pins into her beloved dog (even if this one isn't real!). Since it will be mailed to her I'd like to keep it fairly flat to keep costs down.Delete
Is there any way to make it into a scarf tie? It is so cute, even as a pin it would get the attention it deserves.ReplyDelete
Think it might be too large for a pin or scarf tie - the stitching part measures about 4" across. Otherwise that would be a great idea!Delete
Love your Scottie dog. I'm sure you will come up with something good. The crochet link is eyecatching.ReplyDelete
I have an idea in mind but looking forward to seeing if there's a better idea out there.Delete
How about using it as a cute pillow front insert? Could be changed out by season or occasion. Check these out:ReplyDelete
Great idea! But - postage is an issue. From here to Australia is bad enough without adding extra bulk....but I like the idea of a little pillow.Delete
Is she a reader? Is it too big for an eyeglass case, or maybe a paperback cover? Adding that quote to my favorites.ReplyDelete
Afraid I don't know if she wears glasses but that could be a good idea. If nothing else, she must use sunglasses....hmmmmm......Delete
the scottie dog is so adorable! Maybe a zipper bag to carry charging cords?ReplyDelete
Another great idea! I'm glad I asked because I'm getting all sorts of ideas I hadn't thought of.Delete
That is a cute Scottie! Since postage is an issue, I suggest you envelope a backing, attach a ribbon for hanging, either on a tree or wall.ReplyDelete
Yes, postage is always the issue so whatever I do it has to be pretty flat.Delete
I always imagine envelope style pillows. Use scrap strips building around the needlework log cabin style. Or, if your cousin wears aprons consider the doggie being front and center on the chest or a pocket?ReplyDelete
I have to keep the postage costs in mind with whatever I do so a pillow is kind of out of the equation. An apron is a thought but I don't know how washable the cross stitching would prove to be. Hmmm.....Delete
