1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Heat Setting Speedball Ink? on: December 29, 2006 02:28:56 PM
I've never screen printed before so I want to try my best not to screw it up the first time I try.  I bought a set of Speedball fabric screen printing ink.  The instructions say to "use a paper or cloth interface and iron" properly heat-set the ink.  My question is, what is a paper or cloth interface?  Can I just use any scrap of cloth or is it something special?
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Question About How to Make this Simple Top on: December 27, 2006 12:08:55 PM
Okay, so this top looks relatively easy to replicate.





I just want to make sure that I understand how it's made, particularly the bottom.

Is it just a rectangle of fabric gathered and attached to a bandeau with straps?  Or should the bottom be cut in more of an a-line for it to hang that way?

Any help will be appreciated!  Smiley
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Novelty & Beaded Earrings/Sculpey Necklace on: December 24, 2005 02:01:40 PM
Here are a bunch of a earrings and a necklace I made as Christmas gifts for my friends.  I made two pairs of earrings for each of my friends, one using the plastic charms and another with beads, except for my one non-pierced friend who will be receiving the necklace which is made from chain and sculpey.  This is my first attempt at making jewelry and I think I did a pretty darn good job.  Grin















4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / PINK old school headphones on: July 07, 2005 08:08:19 PM
I had this semi-cute semi-fitted white Roxy t-shirt that had a pink graphic on the front.  But the hem was beginning to unravel and, being the klutz that I am, I dripped red acrylic paint on the front and SMEARED it trying to get it off.  Undecided  Sooo, I went ahead and took out all of the hems and ironed on some headphones.

I kind of like that the original design is visible through the iron on.  They're both pink so it sorta works.  Comments and criticisms are more than welcome.

Has anyone ever used these?  What's the parchment-like paper that it comes with for?  And will I have to print out my image backwards or not?
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Gotta Love Spontaneity... on: February 10, 2005 07:49:53 AM
Ok...today is one of my hallmate's 17th birthday, so last night (after taking a super hard biology exam  Angry) we were all pretty hyper.  So my roomie, neighbor, and I grabbed some scrap fabric and ribbon and made this "birthday shirt" for the birthday girl.

It's held together with staples and had fallen apart within an hour.  Cheesy

This is a tote I made by ironing on some of my old Girl Scout patches, adding Girl Scout pins, and a few other random things.

The first scarf that I knitted!  It reminds me of Elmo...

I made this shirt for my guitar-playing brother for Christmas.  Unfortunately, I don't think he appreciates it as much as he should.  Cry

My mom made the next two things.  The first is a pink scarf she knitted for me and the second is a fingerless glove she made with the leftover yarn.
