Since my boyfriend enjoy playing pen and paper role play games and has a small obsession for dices (all colors, all sizes, all numbers of sides....) he was in need of a new bag for them. So I thought it would be nice to combine this with his obsession for Starwars and make him a bag! So I spent some time searching on easy for patterns and found some in the end. I picked black cashel linen (28ct) for this project and stitched 2 over 2. I stitched one motif on each side and then just sewed it together into a bag (problem is I hate sewing... can't motivate myself to do so...).
I am sorry for the bad pictures, the thing needs another ironing after I sewed it.
The first design is this cute Darth Vader holding a cookie. I once saw it on someones blog a long time ago and I always wanted to stitch ist. Since I was working on black, I left out the black stitches und added a white outline (I hadn't thought about this problem until the other side was done...). I got the pattern from dorkstitchs etsy shop.
The other side has this Darth Vader on it. This was the reason why I started on black fabric (it's horrible to stitch on... I first planned on going 1 over 1, but that wasn't possible...) I also got this pattern on easy, the shop/designer is called Kaplio
I will hopefully remember to take better pictures after ironing and before giving this away.
As of my recent stitching, there is not much to show on Eternal Promise yet. I stitched one column, but I guess I will stitch another one before showing it here, so there is something to see. The reason why I got so little on it done is, that I started stitching an ornament and wasn't able to put it down. I bought this Dimensions Gold kit more than a year ago and never found the chance t start it.
I started the Ornament in the last row, right side in Febuary, stitches a few stitches and then put it down again. But last week(or the week before?) I suddenly felt the urge to stitch on this, so here we go
I think I made fairly good progress. It's completely different from what I usually stitch, it's small, it's on Aida, it uses different numbers of strands and varies between full and half crosses. Maybe that's the reason why I enjoy stitching it so much. I need to stitch the roof and the trees, then there is the sky, but that's all half crosses so it is done in no time. And then - backstitching! I haven't done this is ages :D I am sort of looking forward to it ;-)
Anyway, I think this will provide me with a finish soon, that's motivating.
