1  Re: Nintendo Videogame Challenge in Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. by barraGOUDA on: January 13, 2006 07:25:54 AM
The whole pic that my icon is from, looks a little something like this

check out the controller belt I made. I'm so in love with it, and if we did a swap it'd be something I'd probably send.

Has anyone else made stuff from actual nintendo gear?
A recent art technique I heard about recently, was how someone had somehow hacked into the actual mario Bros 3 game (not a digital version, the actual one) and deleted bits + added bits.
mmm kinda in the way that people "remix" CDs by growing beer mould on it.

I <3 techy creativity.

That belt freaking ROCKS. I hadn't heard that about that Mario Bros 3 art technique, but I think I'm gonna have to look it up...sounds awesome!

2  Re: books for lefty crochet in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by barraGOUDA on: January 12, 2006 04:36:16 AM
I went on amazon and searched for left handed crochet book.  I can't exactly remember then name of the one I got, but it was soimething like "Learn to Crochet in a Day"  Left-handed version.  I haven't sat down with it and some yarn yet, but in looking through it, it seemed pretty good.  You might want to check it out.

Yes! That's what I used. I had a right-handed friend teach me crochet originally, but it was kind of confusing and after a while I'd forgotten how to do it completely so I got this book and it worked well. The patterns in there are pretty grandma-ey but the instructions are sound.

Yay Amazon!

3  Margaret Sanger, and...a hooker? in Stenciling: Completed Projects by barraGOUDA on: January 10, 2006 01:27:35 PM
I love crocheting. I also love stenciling. So I made this shirt!

The stencil was ridiculously easy to make, so feel free to copy it as you like.

I also love birth control, and Margaret Sanger, so I made this shirt:

This stencil was a little harder to make, but feel free to spread the feministy love:

(Long story short, Margaret Sanger was a major contributing factor to the birth control movement. Check Wikipedia for more info, if you want it.)

4  Shirt + hoodie. Karaoke and toast! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by barraGOUDA on: February 21, 2005 05:15:58 PM
First stenciled shirts ever! *cheers* Used freezer paper and fabric paint.

I followed two tutorials closely: DeathCabforCody's basic stenciling tutorial and t0xicity's freezer paper tutorial. Both were very clear and helpful.

The t-shirt was one I made for myself, in case I screwed it up. The burning toaster was a dingbat from the font Pyrobats, so I can't take credit for it. But I have been known to inadvertently set toasters on fire. That counts for something, right?

The hoodie involved two different stencils: "Karaoke Ninja" on the back, and a cassette tape on the front left pocket.

See: Karaoke Ninja. This was for my boyfriend for Valentine's Day. I bought him a shirt from Hot Topic that had the phrase "Karaoke Ninja" on it, and he said he wanted a hoodie with an old-school boombox. So I found clip art of a boombox and added the mic to karaoke-fy it, along with a fitting font.

The cassette stencil is the same one that everyone seems to be using. I got it here.

I kinda screwed up on that stencil, because I suck at using X-Acto knives. But I still like how it turned out.

Hooray! Now I'm gonna make me some toast...
