3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Man vs Nature bag + Question on: August 06, 2009 08:18:49 PM
Hey guys!

I decided to try my hand at stenciling, and was playing with a tote bag and some fabric paints and came up with this:

The first images I stenciled (the electricity poles and the rocket) I didn't use spray adhesive to stick the stencils down, so they look really messy :[
The jellyfish is metallic purple Cheesy

erm... ignore the shadows of words... they're actually screened on the otherside, and i just flipped the tote inside out, since I didn't want to have to deal with trying to cover/remove the images.

I'm not quite sure if I'm ENTIRELY satisfied with how it looks so far, or if I want to add some stenciled words to the right side (vertically, down the side of the bag? or horozontally along the bottom?).

Any opinions? Do you think I should add some words or just leave it as is? If so, what should I write?
Thanks XP

I feel like you could speed up that technique 100x if you use a crochet hook

LOL omg I don't know why I didn't think of that! I used tweezers D: but thanks for the great idea! ^__^

does it tighten the shirt at all?
DuctTapeRockStar is right, it does bunch up the shirt in a few weird places, but overall, the tightening of the shirt is balanced out by the tshirt strips' stretching.

Thanks for the compliments! <33

Oooo, cool!
I looked it up: was it this tutorial?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6SWN4_IhAA

YES it was indeed that tutorial! ^__^ I'm glad you found it, so I dont have to go back and look itup LOL

how small did you cut the curlie q bits?
for the curlicue bits I cut them about a cm wide, then used needle nose tweezers (kinda?) to pull the loops through. Its about 200x faster with tweezers LOL

Quote
how do you finish off the ends so they don't come undone???
I take a bit of white thread, and I sew the last loop onto the shirt :]


thanks for all the love guys! <3

I'm so bored of old, plain Tshirts, and I'm sure ya'll are too (which is why we're all reconstructing, right? XP )
I saw a tutorial of how to braid tshirts on youtube recently, and I was like OMG I HAVE TO TRY THAT!
So... heres my result:


the back. I LOVE THE BACK Cheesy


the front. It's kind of blurry >< but you can see the curlicue I made out of braid :]
of course, that makes the shirt bunch up kind of weirdly, but its okay! =]


closeup on the braid


yup. I'm thinking of more, unique ways to utilize this technique. ^__^

Unfortunately, I don't have pictures of the dress, but I'll just say that it was ripped up, shapeless, and SEE THROUGH.

So I took a pair of shears to it, and here is the result:

haha my fail attempt to look stylish... and minimize the size of my legs D:


closeup of the pretty print


and my outfit!

I really love this skirt. I've been wanting one like this for AGES! I didn't even know I had the perfect skirt-to-be in my closet, BUT NOW I'M SO HAPPY!
