Stitch a Banksy  0

Hello stitchers! I have waited a long time to write this post, March was pretty crappy. I spent most of the month sick as a dog and then my Grandma passed away from Alzheimer’s, so I spent last week with the family and staying with my dad. We ate a lot of if cream and watched a lot of Sci-Fi.

I had plenty of time to work on my, as promised, finished project of one of today’s charts. My dad’s cat Jimmy, is pretty sneaky and decided that cross stitch floss is the ultimate toy. Lucky he plays fetch so he took it straight to my dad & I fashioned a decoy spool so I could work in peace.

Today’s charts are all based on Banksy pieces. I have always been interested in his work, and other thought provoking forms of street art and stencil work.

I finished my version of what I am calling “Girl With Balloon” (I made up names for all the pieces), just in time to take some quick pictures and give it to my mom before I left to drive back to the city.
Banksy girl x

I added back stitching to all the black and on the bottom row of the grey to “ground” it a little.
Banksy girl x detail

I learned a lot making this piece since it is the largest piece I have made, the first time I have used Size 11 fabric, and the largest amount of fill color I have done. I didn’t realize how much more floss it would take, and since I was using vintage floss, I hade to use two versions of black and grey, but it worked out. I also learned that talking while stitching leads to having to pull and re-stitch a lot (there are still a few mistakes).

My phone got a workout charting all of these and I had a couple of late nights obsessively charting because it was hard editing down pieces. Most of these charts are in both cross stitch blocks and knit/crochet blocks, with a few exceptions. I even have a couple large scale or “blanket” sized charts for those of you into larger scale projects.

As always please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, favorite ice cream flavors, or pics of your finished projects (my favorite!).

I’m working on a give away for you guys soon, so keep a look out for that, and like my Hapeless Stitcher page on Facebook for post updates and fellow stitchers’ pics.

Enjoy!

Trevor and TVoovies!  2

Hello stitchers! I have a special post for you today, my friends over at Union Pool have a YouTube show called TVoovies where they mashup a different tv show with a movie every episode, like HOUSE OF CARDS Double-Crosses with Picard, that mashes up Star Trek with House of cards.image

Today the TVoovies season 3 premier comes out, and I hear there is going to be a Doctor Who, mashup this season which you know I am pretty excited about!

In Honor of their 3 season premier, I have created knitting/crochet, Perler bead, and cross stitch charts of some of their original characters from the first two seasons.

I’m going to start with Trevor, who is a series regular. He tends to turn up a lot in the background, sometimes getting kicked around a bit. He also happens to be pretty cute. I have a few version of him. The first is regular old Trevor, from the his first appearance in PARKS AND RECREATION Gets JURASSIC.

A Rebuilding Month And The Little Prince  0

Hello Stitchers! January has always been a bit of a rebuilding month, recovering from the craziness of December’s holidays and the cold snowy January weather. This year has been especially so, since I had my phone stolen at the local casino. Casinos are generally unexciting, and rather depressing. It was my friend’s birthday however and I took one for the team. Within 20min, and not till I sat down did I notice, my iPhone was gone. As you know I do my charting on my phone, so this was a huge set back. Luckily a friend’s boyfriend sent me an old iPhone and the iCloud magically brought back all the charts-in-progress I thought I lost! I must say the whole situation was a trial and made me feel very lucky to have such amazing friends!

When I was a kid my mom would read to us all of the time. I come from a family of readers and teachers, so books were always a big part of my life. One of the books that we always loved was The Little Prince. I’m pretty sure we had Mom read it to us even into middle school. It wasn’t till high school when my friends read it in French class, did I realize other people read it too.

These are my The Little Prince charts that I had been working on for some time, lost on my phone, and got back. I have both cross stitch and knit blocks of the prince on his little planet. The rest are knit block charts. My favorite is the Hat/Boa eating an elephant.

What books did you like reading as a child that have stuck with you till today?

Enjoy!

Pusheen and Friends  7

Hello stitchers! I use Facebook Messenger for a good portion of my puppy-sitting communication, mainly because most people can have it up on their desktops at work. I can send pics of their cuteness, or in some cases evidence of their puppy destruction. Then one day they added the “sticker” option and I fell in love with a cute little cat that reminds me of one of my kitty nieces, Miss Leo.
imageI can’t help it, Pusheen expresses all of life’s great emotions.

I went a little overboard and made a bunch of Pucheen, and Pucheen Friends charts for you to stitch. Full intarsia color as well as line work charts. They are all in (5×6) knit stitch, in 13x13inch pillow squares. If you are interested in a cross stitch pattern of one of these, let me know, there is a good chance I will chart it up.

As always please let me know what you want to chart, if you find any bad links, have any pics of your awesome creations, or pictures of your relatives passed out after too much holiday turkey.

Enjoy!

Turtle Power!  51

Hello my stitchers! When I was in Middle and High School (in the mid 90s) my brother and I would race home to watch The Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles .

20140709-005241-3161847.jpg
Yes we were raised nerd. It was important to get home in time to see the second episode. It was also important to beat each other home so we could get the good seat, the one that let you control the tv. We only had one tv and no remote. There were a few physical altercations that occurred over this, and several bruises. The chair was serious business. We even ran home on Fridays, knowing perfectly well that it was going to be a rerun. If we had a DVR, life would have been way more productive.

Today I bring to you a hand full of charts, all knitting, of our beloved half shelled friends. The individuals are in 3 different sizes so you can make pillows or pot holders or whatever crazy projects you can think of adding them to. I even threw in the outlines in case you wanted to just knit & purl or fill in your own colors.

I have been rather busy lately with life, so July might be a slow month for posts and then again every time I say that I make a slew of them in a row.

As always please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, requests, good puns, or corrupted links.

Enjoy!

I’m looking for test stitchers!  0

Hello everyone! How are you handling the heat? We got a nice bought of rain showers that have helped cool things a bit and I am loving it. I even took Harry Dog to the (little) waterfalls since the rain made them a bit more exciting.
20140605-180421-65061874.jpg
*Wet and happy Harry

It’s farmer’s market season and we hit our first one yesterday, which just happens to be where the waterfalls are. The best part was a guy selling pies out of a hearse.

20140605-180657-65217003.jpg
In other random scary news, my housemate diagnosed someone with Leprocy (Hansens disease). We also acquired another housemate without me actually noticing. He might be bringing another dog to the house if the Landman lets him. We are turning into a zoo.

In yarn related news, I am looking for test stitchers. I can chart way faster than I can stitch and am looking for test stitchers (knitters, crocheters, Tunisian crocheters, and cross stitchers) to help me on some patterns I want to sell. These are not patterns that will be on this site. I will still be making nerdy things and posting them for you to enjoy, just making more all together. If you are interested please email me at YourFPMolina@gmail.com. Let me know what kind of stitchery you do, and what kind of projects and imagery you would like to work on i.e. Crocheting Doctor Who, Supernatural, and unicorn blankets.

I didn’t buy any honey at the farmers market since I have lots of it at home, but I was tempted, so I whipped up some bee hive charts for you guys instead. I have Perler bead, cross stitch and knitting charts. I made a couple variations of each so there’s something for everyone. I think whatever you make with these would be great in a kids room, but you can appreciate them if you are a big kid too!

Enjoy!

Mr. Stampy Cat!  5

A little while ago a good Internet friend of mine asked me if I could make a chart for her. She is just starting out with cross stitch and I was trying to help her. She got one of those horrible kits that quickly lost her attention. I told her to try a pattern that was more fun. A few days later she sends me this weird cartoon of a cat and says that this is what she wants:

20140530-235241-85961334.jpg
Now I just got to work on it without thinking about it too much. Then one day I just Googled Mr Stampy Cat, on a whim. I am sure glad I did, because he‘s hilarious.

20140530-235455-86095293.jpg
As you know I’m not a big video game player, but Mr Stampy Cat makes videos of his Minecraft games. He has other players come over and play games and have adventures with him. You can listen to his delightful accent and watch him eat cake off a camel’s back here!

I have three cross stitch versions (and a bonus pixel set) of Mr Stampy Cat, each with varying degrees of complexity, so you can stitch one if you are a newbie or if you have a house full of floss.

Let me know what other characters You might want to stitch, or just tell me how cute your cat is.

Enjoy!

I Wuv Supernatural  0

Hello my stitchers! I have been working on a hand full exciting projects…that sadly I won’t be able to share with you for quite some time. I know, I’m a bit of a tease, but hopefully it will be worth it.

In Patrick Gilmore news, they finally put out a trailer for the new show he will be on Gracepoint. I’m happy to see my boyfriend David Tennant, on tv again, but his American accent kinda messes with my head. It’s a remake of a BBC show called Broadchurch. Are you guys going to watch? Let me know and we can get nerdy together. Patrick isn’t in the trail and I don’t know what kind of character he will be playing yet, but I’m still excited.

Another exciting thing that happened last week was the Season 9 finale of Supernatural. I totally saw it coming but I still haven’t recovered. I think I’m a bit in denial. I’m not going to spoil anything for you who haven’t seen it, but I will weep with those who have.

I have been working on this cross stitch for some time now, but after that finale it was perfect timing to finish it. Remember everyone’s favorite bi-polar nut-job of a giant teddy bear, T. Bear? Well I mashed him with Dean’s “I Wuv Hugz” teddy bear shirt. Yes now you can sum up all of your post season angst with a nice relaxing cross stitch that feels your pain.

It’s rare but all I have is a cross stitch for you, don’t get too used to it. I did make a large print version of the chart and also one that just has the marks (for you fickle stitchers that do whatever it is you do with those). I do plan on making a version with all the outlines done, but it takes ages for me to do all of that on my phone. *I updated with outlines* Unless I get a visit from the iPad fairy (a girl can dream).

Enjoy your long Memorial Day weekend! Be safe, be thankful, and enjoy!

-Molina

P.S.
Don’t forget to let me know what you want to stitch next!

I don’t know what happened but I seem to have missed the lines on the right paw. That’s what I get for charting past my bead time. I’ll fix it soon.

Not a cat and not really a dog  0

When I was in third grade I made a little green K-9, from Doctor Who, out of modeling clay for my Dad. I was in my late twenties when he hesitantly told me that K-9 was no more than a pile of clay and sticky dust. I think it was one of the most coveted presents I made him. I must say it was one of my favorites as well.

While I was sitting around being grumpy on anti-biotics, I decided to whip up a pattern of the metallic pup, so I can make another K-9 present for my dad….and you can make one for a beloved Whovian in your life.

I also decided to make some Totoro patterns for some reason. I think a late night Internet search might have inspired them. I had a huge love of Totoro in college.

All patterns are 50×50, pillow sized. If you make multiples you can also sew them together to make a blanket. No cross stitch colors this set, they are pretty basic so they wouldn’t be too hard to make with what you might have around.

Enjoy!

Merry Yule & Impending Christmas!  0

Christmas is coming! I hope you are ready. It’s time for all those last second shoppers to go out & wreak havoc in the stores. Personally I finished wrapping up most of my presents today. I only have a few more to finish making & wrap. My title of World’s Coolest Aunt, is on the line. I managed to only purchase some small things, like for my brother lives on M&m’s. My holiday excitement starts on the 21st and ends on New Years, so it’s going to be a busy week of socializing with friends & family, and unfortunately driving.

I thought this week I would pull out a hand full of charts that I either had posted on my old blog, or have been floating around in my Dropbox far too long.

I hope you enjoy your holiday, or at least New Years!

What have you been making for the holidays?

Enjoy!

This is a pattern I made shortly after acquiring my charting program. Kaboom!, was one of my favorite games to play on my uncle’s Atari, when I would visit my grandma. We always had Christmas Eve at her house with my mom’s side of the family. Grandma had her own cake shop & would make elaborate gingerbread houses every year. This time of year always reminds me of her, and oddly enough so does Kaboom!

This summer I spent some time helping take care of my other grandma, who has Alzheimer’s. She is in hospice care right now and this year we are going to have Christmas at her house for probably the last time. Always the bird watcher she has a great bird watching window, feeders always well supplied, where there are always cardinals hopping around. I made these patterns during my visit.
