71  You've Got the Touch! -Transformers stenciled tee in Stenciling: Completed Projects by fluffypants on: July 11, 2009 04:18:30 PM
A friend commissioned this from me, and hokey smokes, at first I wondered what I had gotten myself into... but I was so pleased with the result in the end that it was all worthwhile! She found a shirt with this design online, but rather than buy it for her boyfriend, decided to ask me to recreate it. They must have been out of stock or something.... in any case, I present the most ridiculous stencil I've taken on to date!

It's a mix of fabric painting, freezer paper stenciling, and freehand painting. I'm pleased as punch with it, even though I know nothing about Transformers... just that the line is from the theme song. Wink

The only thing I'm not happy with is the amps ... the blue circles on them were done in fabric paint, and they're a bit wonky. I  mean, hey, I was zonked by the time I put the finishing touches on this thing, but I'm still my worst critic!

Wahooooooo! Prepare to be stupefied- I have received the most fantastic package from sallyb! I am so happy with every last bit of it. My mom even cried after I opened it, she was so touched that someone would put so much care into swap items, hehe.. mom's a softie.

First up, all the goodies!! Chocolate, chocolate, MORE CHOCOLATE! Also, vegemite, some really cool booklets about places in Australia, and a few neat-o magazines!

Next up, the great My Fair Lady magnets, including little magnet paper dolls! So adorable!

Up next, the absolutely adorable Fiddler on the Roof bag (I love the Tevye applique!) and a sneak peek at the large item in the background... Wink Forgot to get a shot of the great vintage bed sheet lining of this pouch- will have to do that soon!

Isn't he the most adorable thing ever?!

And finally, the piece de resistance... the most amazing technicolor hoodie the world has ever seen! My gosh, when I think of the hours that must have gone into this, I believe I was truly blessed with Sally as my swap partner! I love this shirt to pieces, and have already worn it out and about tonight. Cheesy

And of course, I've had the songs stuck in my head all day... which led to this. Wink

Yay for late night 5 minute photoshop jobs! Wink

And one last one of JUST HOW EXCITED I am!

Thanks again Sally, I adore everything! And thanks heaps to kaishabackwards for taking my dream of a musical swap and making it a reality for the lot of us!! Smiley

Now I can sing every time I wear the hoodie...... I look handsome, I look smart, I am a walking work of art...!

73  My first freezer paper stencils- Warhol, Dali, Squirtle, NES & more! img heavy! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by fluffypants on: May 17, 2009 11:18:26 AM
Sooo I got freezer paper the other day, and totally fell in love! I've been obsessively crafting the past few days and really loving the results.

This was the first shirt I made:

Which was followed by this one...

And that's about where I started going crazy, and made all of these:

(NES undies, just trying out the stencil- didn't want to use up a shirt, haha)

Couple detail shots:

And the happy crafter:

And the happy boyfriend:

And that's been my past 2 days in a nutshell! Comments appreciated muchly. Cheesy

74  Snoopy sheets = wrap pants in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by fluffypants on: April 30, 2009 09:54:06 PM
Thanks a million to this tutorial, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=254336.0 I just made the comfiest pair of pants I think I've ever made! After a minor mishap with the sewing, may I present my Snoopy wrap pants. Smiley

I'm so glad I picked up this sheet on half price day at the thrift store- I knew it would come in handy!

75  Weird, wacky, and a whole lotta nerdy earrings (7 smallish pics) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by fluffypants on: April 21, 2009 07:10:42 AM
So the other day I picked up my polymer clay and wondered why I have so much... I decided it was time to start making things again! It led to a few hours full of nerdiness, but now I've got some awesome new earrings to show off. I love new earrings! Smiley

I'm wearing these little Hitchhiker's Guide dudes today:

My boyfriend suggested he might take me to a Cubs game when I go visit him, so naturally I gotta go in style. Wink Not crazy about how these turned out; they were the first of the night and I hadn't worked with clay in months!

Oldschool geekery

Mmm, lemon cake... only my second attempt at cake... it looked nicer before I cut it up

What I did with the extra lemon slices:

Who didn't love ViewMaster as a kid? Smiley (or as an adult, for that matter...)

These Tetris earrings are so ridiculously huge and klunky, I love 'em! Hard to tell scale from a pic, though, isn't it. I'll have to get an action shot later...

Thanks for looking! Smiley  Suggestions for more nerdy earrings are much appreciated! Wink

Edited to add an "action shot" of the Tetris earrings for scale:

Big n' clunky! Love 'em! Wink

76  Vintage pattern + grandma's bed sheets = summer dress! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by fluffypants on: March 07, 2009 09:22:09 PM
A brief background on this one...

I'm graduating from graphic design this spring, and we're having a big grad show, as per usual. A bunch of the girls in my class went out the other day to talk about some decorating ideas for the show, and we were talking about dressing up all fancy shmancy for the opening night.
We went to one dress shop, which was a little discouraging because everything was a size 6 and cost around $300! I decided I want to make my own dress for the show, so today I pulled out a vintage dress pattern I got at Value Village (I bought it when my boyfriend and I were going to be Lucy and Ricky for Halloween) and decided to try making one just to see how it fit.

I got this huge flowery bed sheet at Value Village months ago, because it's the exact same one my grandma had, and it reminds me of her. Smiley I knew it would come in handy someday!

This was only meant to be a trial piece, but I think I kinda like it! I look a little doped up in the pic, so please excuse my expression. (Neighbours should not klunk around outside my door at 4 a.m.!) Still debating what kind of fabric to use for the dress I'll wear at the show. I'm thinking either something wacky (maybe one of the vintage TV bed sheets.... A-Team anyone?) or something classic black and white...

Thanks for looking! Smiley

77  Bicycle Race ... well... bicycle! in CHALLENGE 36 ENTRIES by fluffypants on: March 04, 2009 04:19:16 PM
This started out as an ugly purple bike I used to ride back in grade four. I don't think I have any pictures of it around from when it was still purple.

It was an art class project, so I hope it's alright to post here. Smiley

The song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpy4xNAnWzM

I spray painted the bike black and used silver fabric paint to write the lyrics to the entire song all over. I then decided on what to do with the wheels.

The pictures on the wheels are all bristol board, sewn between the spokes. The blue and red pop art type wheel is a pencil crayon and Sharpie drawing. The drawing of Freddie in leather was done in charcoal. The Queen logo and the pink/purple "portrait" were both acrylic paint.

One of the most fun (and most stressful) things I've ever done!

78  Butterfly Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by fluffypants on: January 11, 2009 10:34:52 PM
My latest bag began as a gift for a girl who was flaked on in a Christmas exchange. I was originally going to make a tote bag out of the fabric I used as lining, but then had a brainstorm! The end result was this little cutie...

With a cute butterfly lining!

Comments? Crits?

One quick note: Please don't try to make and sell these for a profit. Smiley

79  Placemat "IQ Lights" in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by fluffypants on: January 11, 2009 10:29:40 PM
After finding the pattern to make pieces for IQ lights, I got addicted! I also found that plastic dollar store placemats work GREAT for these, despite being a little rough on the hands to cut out. That being said, the dollar store here sells 'em 2/$1, so the "shell" of these lamps works out to costing about $1.50, then it's just a matter of wiring it up!

Here are my first and last... unfortunately I don't have pics of the other 3 I completed. Besides these two, I made one out of pink flowery placemats, one out of these super cool green and brown geometric print mats, and another out of reddish orange mod ones. Hopefully I'll have pics soon!

Here's my first, before wiring...

And my last, which became a birthday gift for a friend of mine. Smiley

Thanks for looking! Cheesy Hopefully more to come!

Editing to add the link to these lovelies...including the pattern piece! I didn't even realize I got the pattern from Craftster originally! *blush*

80  Reindeer and snowmen polymer clay earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by fluffypants on: January 11, 2009 10:10:08 PM
Some earrings I made for Christmas gifts this past year!

Snowmen for my mummo...

I was super happy with how the reindeer came out... they remind me of Muppets!

Comments much appreciated! Smiley
