421  Freezer paper stenciled bandanna in Stenciling: Completed Projects by jillybeans on: August 17, 2011 10:43:55 PM
Yes yes, you haven't heard the last from me on freezer paper stenciling!  This time I did a design on a bandanna for my partner in the Hair Accessories Swap to go with her hair falls.  I found the image online somewhere. 

Here are the progress shots:


Here is the stencil all cutout and ironed onto the bandanna.  I've started applying the white paint with a foundation sponge.


The white paint is all on!


Peek-a-boo!


The finished design.



Thanks for looking!

422  Go go Spiderman and Mario T-Shirts! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by jillybeans on: August 14, 2011 06:21:20 PM
It was my nephew's 6th birthday party today.  Along w/ a cake, I also made him two shirts w/ a couple of his favorite subjects on them.  I did the freezer paper method of stenciling.  The first that I made was Spiderman, using a pictures I found on the interwebs. 


I unfortunately didn't take any progress shots of this one.  I did three layers of stenciling.  I did the red first, then blue, then black.  I added in the details (including all the spiderwebs) by hand w/ a paint brush. 

I did, thankfully, get progress shots of the Mario shirt.  For the Mario shirt, I had Mario coming out of a warp pipe from the bottom of the shirt.  I, again, found my images online.
I started w/ the pipe.


So the first layer was regular green and the second layer of stenciling was a lighter green for shading.


Here is what it looked like w/ the two colors.


Next I put on the black outlines.  Afterwards, I cleaned it up a bit w/ the stenciling.  The layers get a little messy when they are applied on top of each other, but they are easily fixed.

Next was mario!  I didn't really have a clear way of adding the layers.  I kinda just cut out the layers as I thought fit, and not in certain blocks of colors like I normally do. 


I started out w/ Mario's hat, boots, mustache and side burn.  Next was the white on his hat, his top white glove, overalls, and the soles of his boots.


Then I added his mouth, shirt, and buttons.  The next layer was the M on his hat, his skin, and the bottom glove. 


I then did a stencil for the thick layer of black that went all the way around Mario, and I didn't take a picture of that step.  Afterwards, I added the rest of the black details on Mario's body by hand and cleaned up any of the areas that needed cleaning up.


TADA!  Mario shirt!  (yes, I did hum the Mario theme song to myself as I made this.)

Thanks for looking!

423  Re: One Tiny Stuffie Round 6 Gallery O' Goodness in The Swap Gallery by jillybeans on: August 14, 2011 07:26:04 AM
Ok, my lovely partner BirdBones told me to go ahead and post pictures of what I sent her, even though they haven't made it to her (after 4+ weeks now) and inquires into the post office haven't yielded any luck.  I will send her another package, hopefully soon.  But here is what I originally sent her:


Meet Frederick, a friend monster.  ^_^  He probably ended up being around 4" tall.  His wings were lined w/ pipe cleaners so that they could be adjustable.


And his sister!  (I don't remember what I name her).  I got a little better at doing the wings the second time around.




The entire package (less some fruit rollups, because I couldn't get them all to fit.  ^_^).  I made her a couple flower hair clips and a necklace for our personal swap.

I received from my second partner, zigg13pra!  That was a quick swap!  lol

Here is the whole package of hair accessory goodness!


A headband, scrunchies, and a hair clip and bobbies!  YAY YAY!

First off, my favorite item:

A headband covered in batik fabric!  oooOoooo!


A felt flower hair clippy!  The colors remind me of spring.


Crocheted (?) scrunchies!  I love the variegated colors!


Another flower hair clippy!  Totally cute!


And flower bobbies! 

Yay yay!  Thanks for the wonderful package, zigg13pra!  I hope yours makes it to you soon.  It said it was suppose to get there today, but USPS didn't post that it was delivered, so hopefully tomorrow.

425  Zelda and Mario Stitch Markers in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by jillybeans on: August 10, 2011 04:02:28 PM
I tried my hand w/ Fimo clay for my swap partner in the Video Game Swap.  She requested stitch markers for knitting.  What nerd is complete without a set of nerdy stitch markers for nerdy knitty?  Well she is definitely complete now! 

Ocarinas from Zelda and Mushrooms from Mario!


The ocarinas ended up having a lot of fingerprint ridges, and I wasn't sure what to do with that.  I guess I could have sanded them down, but I didn't, since they were so small.  I painted them w/ regular acrylic paint and added a clear coat to them afterwards. 





Thanks for looking!

426  Fawful Stuffie! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by jillybeans on: August 10, 2011 03:55:14 PM
For the Video Game Swap, my partner listed Fawful from Super Mario Brothers as one of the characters she likes.  I was clueless as to this character, but after some research found he would a likely canidate for a stuffie, and I was determined to make a geeky stuffie!  I could have done a moogle or something more common, but this was one that had never been done before.  So I printed off a picture and went to work (w/ my limited stuffie making knowledge).  I did all the sewing by hand (and manly in the car driving back and forth across Washington state on vacation), so it did end up taking me a long time to do.  My family gave me many confused looks as I was stitching away.  "Fawful??"  For the most part, they are all nerds and figured out who it was after I told them which video game it was from.  "Oh, from Super Mario Brothers, I think I remember him."  But still gave me weird looks for picking such an obscure character to do.  Meh, its what my partner wanted!  ^_^


Upclose and personal w/ the dastardly man himself. 


And him posing w/ a picture of himself that I used as the inspiration.  Normally he has legs, but I opted for legless. 

His body and jacket are made from fleece, his eyes and mouth are felt.  I wanted him to be pretty much snugglie (despite his maniacal nature) so that why I opted for fleece over felt for the most part.

The picture doesn't show it, because at the last minute I realized that I forgot to add his little wisp of black hair on the top of his head.  I did that w/ puffy paint.  ^_^

Thanks for looking!

427  Chocobo and Moogle Tote bag in Stenciling: Completed Projects by jillybeans on: August 10, 2011 03:37:30 PM
For the video game swap my partner listed that she likes chocobos and moogles from Final Fantasy, and totes!  So together, this love child was made. 

I found the image for the design online here:  http://silverdragon27.deviantart.com/art/CHOCOBO-and-moogle-22994772


Here is the finished result.  I used the freezer paper method, which I'm still new to but I am loving!  I did the base colors with different layers of stenciling and then painted on the black lines and some details.

And here are some "work in progress" shots:

Here is the first layer of freezer paper ironed onto the bag awaiting paint.


And here is where all the base colors are down.  I use the triangle sponges that you use to apply foundation for the paint.

Thanks for looking!

428  Re: Ongoing ATC Swap for July 2011 in The Swap Gallery by jillybeans on: August 09, 2011 07:02:28 AM
I received from mod35tbabe for "your location" theme.  Its awesome to get this one, since she lives in Australia!  This is my first non-USA location theme.  YAY YAY!


Cooma: gateway to the snowy mountains.  I love that the sheep are fuzzy!!!!  I keep petting them.  Goooood sheepies!

WideEyedLife and I did a personal swap as well, since I wanted to snag one of her ABCs.  I know you all want to see what she made!  ^_^


A cupcake entitles "YES!"  Ha ha!  Silly cupcake!


And a beautiful little lady.  This is truly a work of art and deserves to be in a little gilded frame, not a an ATC sleeve.  Her name is Elizabeth and she has a gothic feel to her.  Lovely!

Thanks, ladies, for the beautiful cards!!!

Here is the Katamari frame, w/ a cross-stitched prince on it, which I adore!  I loooooove cross-stitches, and I just recently did my first one.  I'm so excited to get one!  The frame has fun random objects on it, including some super cute puffy stickers.  Na na na na na na na na na na na na na naaaaa!


A squishy and delightful moogle head from Final Fantasy.  It looks like it is made from felt, so snuggly!!!!  I think my new little friend will make a nice home for himself on our couch.


A bag w/ the triforce symbol from Zelda.  The triforce is so soft.  I keep running my hand over it in delight.  Mmmm, soft.  I'm a sucker for soft.


And inside the bag: EXTRAS!!!  I got stuffing, felt pieces, embroidery floss (its like she knew!), key chains, magnets and glass bubbles to make magnets, a tin, floss holders, a little sewing kit, and a mini magnetic frame.  Woo hoo!!!!  All stuff that will come in useful for later crafting adventures!


Katamari Dymacy shirt (for the hubby!).  Isn't it awesome!!!  Its so bright and colorful!  Is it an iron-on transfer?  Its so cool!  The hubby really likes it!


Close up shot of the Prince rolling his Katamari.


Uh, my love, that's not how it goes.  Silly husband!


Ah, there ya go.  The hubster modeling the wares.  He's pretty happy.  ^_^
