1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Margaret Sanger, and...a hooker? 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.)
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Shirt + hoodie. Karaoke and toast! 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...
