1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / tuba players birthday! on: February 22, 2006 03:20:39 PM
its one of my friends birthdays on saturday and i'm trying to think of a band geek oriented gift idea! a little bit about the birthday boy:

-turning 17
-plays the tuba (also knows how to play the trumpet and trombone)
-playes goalie for his hockey team

i dont really have any ideas of what i could make him. my friend is making his sweat pants that say "tuba" on it and i was thinking of doing a tee shirt that said "Band Jock" but i don't really wnat to steal the idea fo the gal doing the pants. so i basically im trying to get some ideas of accessories band nerds need? like a mouthpiece case.

OPEN TO ALL SUGGESTIONS!

3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / mythbusters stencil (in need of enlargement) on: August 24, 2005 10:48:34 PM


i do not need the whole picture, just the part that says "mythbusters"

if you can, i'd greatly appreciate if anyone would be able to enlarge the word "mythbusters" without making it go mega pixely. plus if you can, make it more stencil like. if you can't make it more stencil like thats okay, i can figure that part out. Smiley thanks for your help fellow craftsters!  Grin

for the stencil i used the band name from one of thier CD's and then for some reason i thought it'd be a cool idea to have it come out of a phonograph so i found one and voila!

let me know what you think!
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / first time stenciller! i have questions! on: July 23, 2005 07:50:59 PM
i always am on a hunt for clothes to craft up, but i can never find anything good! so my question to all the crafters who stencil out there:

WHERE DO YOU FIND SUCH NICE FITTING GOOD QUALITY SHIRTS FOR NOT TOO MUCH MONEY?

what brands (if you have a favorite) do you like to stencil on best? is fruit of the loom good?

any other tips before i start my first stencil project?
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / snazzed up tote's from walmart on: June 12, 2005 07:07:08 PM
i had no idea what to get my best friend for her birthday, and since i'm low on cash, i had wanted to make her something. first i thought a t-shirt, because i had bought those iron on transfer fabric paper stuff. but i remembered when i'd made myself one it was really stiff. so then i started thingking what else i could put it on, that is stiff already and wont look weird. i got the idea to put the image on a tote bag! (i'm sure it's been done before i know, but hey it was a first for me!) i had to make one for myself of course lol, im really happy with them! so this is how it turned out:

total cost per finished bag: $12.50 canadian

8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / button bracelette on: May 25, 2004 05:40:13 PM
ill try to exaplain this as best as i can! i even attempted to draw a picture of it:

http://www.villagephotos.com/viewpubimage.asp?id_=8838562

step 1: get some buttons and some fishing wire, if yu have approximately the same size write and size of buttons as me you'll need about 27 buttons, 6 of one color and 21 of another.

step 2: in a 4 button holed button, put the fishing string through parallel holes in the button

step 3: if you want a bracelette that looks like the "finished result" picture like i drew you should put 3 of one color then the other, like i did 3 white then a pink, 3 white then pink. for some reason the buttons overlap, dont freak, they're suposed to do that!

step 4: voila, its done, just tie it onto your write, neck, whatever u make it for and u got some fun unique jewelry!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / tee shirt turned tube top on: April 28, 2004 05:41:50 PM
sorry i have no pictures but its pretty straight forward!

i saw this in a cosmo girl magazine!

first you buy a plain or designed teeshirt, it doesnt really matter whats on it, if its plain u can always decortate it with airbriushing and such later! but just make sure teh shirt is not skit tight on you (thats imporntant)

then cut off the top of the teeshirt (so cut horizonatlly from underneath the sleves of the shirt, and u can trhow away the collar and sleves)

then cut a slit down the back of the teeshirt so u have a strip of fabric. now if u have a plain teeshirt now would be the time u design it

when u are down decorating it, take the top 2 corners of the shirt  in the back and tie it onto yourslef do teh same with the bottom 2 corners of the shirt, and soo u have a nice slit in the back of your shirt

voila, u have yourself a tube top!
