Since our team for the Summer Nerd Games decided on the geekdom "nerdy ladies", I have discovered that there are not that many crafts inspired by the feminine side of the nerdverse. Sad times. So, I've had to
watch and read *study* a lot more TV shows and movies and books and comics to get inspiration. Such a hard task! ~_^ But, totally worth it. The textbook challenge for July is to make something anatomically inspired, and I had the perfect project waiting in the wings! ^_^
When I saw this shirt on Thea Queen (from Arrow), I knew that I had to do something inspired by it! Since I'm a student now (read: I have no money), I wanted to use materials from my stash and I wanted to do something fast and simple.
A hoopla was the winning answer! All I needed for this craft was some calico, black embroidery floss, and a 4 inch hoop - all things pulled from the black hole of craft supplies that is my spare room ~_^
I used only one strand of floss and did the entire thing in backstitch. I think it turned out pretty well! And now I have another hoop to add to my wall ^_^
What do you think? Do you like it? Do you have a favourite female fictional character? Let me know! I've been missing our chats ~_^
