This is a shirt I was going to use for the Harry Potter movie release in November. Seeing as it's now set for NEXT August (I hate so many things about this), I wanted to go ahead and do something different with the shirt. So I dug up a sketch I had done, and ended up re-sketching it onto the shirt (the original sketch was like, 5x7, so it had to be resized) and then painting over it with fabric paint. It's the first time I've ever done this, so I'm kind of pleased with myself.
So you can see the arm going into my armpit. Heehee.
So I'm going to a one day festival (actually it's 3 days, but I'm only making tomorrow.. and I wanted to be able to pack around my cash/coins in my back pocket, so I wouldn't need to carry anything. This is what I whipped up. It's nothing super special, it didn't take long at all. I just think it's cute.
Front closed- I just used left over thread scraps. so I would run out of thread and have to tie it off (see top left. Bleck!)... I promise I can sew a little neater than that!
back- RICE BALL!!
Just wanting to show off my little rice ball, it was my accomplishment for the day, however small.
So I have pretty much no experience in the clothing department of crafting, but my friend and I really want to make t-shirts for the Harry Potter movie in November. I intend to use fabric paints and iron on letters, etc, but what I would really like to do is make felt appliques and then sew them onto my shirt. My question is- is there any special trick to it? Or do I just directly sew the patch onto the shirt, knot my threads off on the inside, the end, easy peasy? And if that is all there is to it, do I need to either hand wash or use the delicates cycle, or can it go with everything else?
Thanks for any help in this confusing, and probably silly question!!!
So I love ATC's, but I'm not very good at making them. I've seen some that are made out of fabric/felt, though, and that looks a little more up my alley. But I was wondering- do you need to put anything like cardboard or stuffing in between your front and back pieces of material to give it a more sturdy feel, or is that not necessary? Any help would be appreciated!
So let me start this off by saying- I horde magazines, stationery, scrapbook paper, etc. I am a pack rat when it comes to cute designs/pictures/images... and I love to cut them out. I don't really like to make collages, though because I like each image to stand out on it's own. So what I've done is basically marry my paper addiction, and my love of polyclay pendants... it's basically the same concept as resin jewelry, except I think it's a lot easier, and definitely less expensive. So tell me what you think!
Rocky Horror Picture Show
Not sure what to call this- I refer to her as the sexy holster chick
Neat little skull
Bunny & Chick
In case you couldn't tell, I was having a bit of a bipolar moment when I made all of these...
I've been experimenting with polymer clay and paper cut outs for jewelry. I personally think these are pretty cute, but I was wondering if they would sell- etsy would be my primary selling place, and I never know how to price things. Are these something you think would sell? I was thinking around 4-5 USD, but didn't know if that was too high, or if it would be under pricing them. It would be just for the pendant, not the chain. I could always include the chain, but I would probably mark them up about a dollar higher if I did. I figure most people have chains already, and then it'd save them a little. Anyway, rambling! All opinions/questions/comments greatly appreciated!
So here are some necklace pendants I've made out of painted polyclay and cut outs from kawaii memo pads. They measure anywhere from 1 to 2 inches across, the first one being the largest, and the other two being approx. the same size. I think they're pretty cute, but I'd like to get some people's opinions about them!
Cat and Mouse- (I never remember this brand's name)
Also, a pair of shrinky dink pill bottle earrings. They're a little smudged in places, but they're just for myself, so I don't mind.
Hi, I was just wondering where I could find whole Japanese memo pads besides going to Japan myself. I know you can buy mixed lots of loose sheets on ebay, and etsy, but I can't find intact memo pads. Is there some website that sells these, or are there just lucky people that get to stock up when they go to Japan? Help!!
I have a canvas tote bag that I bought on sale, and well, it's pretty blah. I'm really wanting to decorate it, but I'd rather not have to buy fabric paints. Can I use regular acrylic paint on canvas? Do I need to seal it? And will it be all stiff and crackly, or is there something I can do to prevent that? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, and if this would fit better in a different board, just let me know and I'll move it. Thank you!!!
Would anyone be interested in doing a Gilmore girls swap? I think it would be round 2... not sure where the link is. I don't think I could organize, I think you have to have done 2 swaps first. Anyway, I was just wanting to see if there would be of any interest to anyone!
