121  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / owl anti-stencil on: June 28, 2005 07:35:21 AM
yay for messy-haired late-night photo shoots!

i love how this turned out. it was my husband's idea, and when i found this owl, i had to try it.

close-up of the owl:

in the actual picture, the lines are all wavy like that, and i liked it so i cut it that way, but now it looks like the stencil bled, even though this is the best result i've ever had with stencils.

ps- excuse the white by the branch on the right. the freezer paper stuck and i didn't notice. it's gone now.
122  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / happy birthday from my kitten! on: June 24, 2005 07:49:59 PM


he wasn't real happy about it, i guess we have to get him tired first.
123  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / fun fur kitten bed! on: June 10, 2005 10:00:26 AM
I found the coolest fake fur at wal-mart of all places, and I knew I had to make Rob a bed. The fur is short-ish blue with dots of green that are longer. If you smooth it out it almost looks like stripes. I couldn't figure out how to put the bed together at first, so I had a pile of fake fur on the living room floor for a while and Rob loved it immediately. He would be playing with us and then disappear and we'd find him sleeping in the pile of fur.
Here's the finished bed - I couldn't get Rob to leave it alone, so he's modeling again.

124  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / kitty necktie on: June 08, 2005 08:04:44 AM
my husband was trying to sleep before work (he works third shift) so I had to keep Rob, our 6-week-old kitten awake so he'd sleep all night and quiet so Paul could sleep. I got out my fabric scraps bag, and this is what happened:


He just sat there and purred while i tied it for him. I can tell he's going to be a good model.
125  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / vintage b/w material halter on: May 25, 2005 09:59:08 AM
i'm not happy with it, but it looks pretty til i put it on. i need to take in the sides before the back will lace properly when it's on. right now the sides just pull together and it's ugly. and since the back won't lace tight, it doesn't support my boobs and they fall under the seam. i meant to have the lacing farther apart, but the way i sewed it took a lot of the material between the lacing away.
front:

back:

on:

in the last picture i'm holding the back tighter because it's too loose.

i am frustrated with it and ready to throw it away, but the material is from my great-grandma, and i want to make it work because it's special. i know i need thicker straps, the thin stuff was all i had at the time.

i was worried about it fraying, so there are no exposed edges anywhere. i don't have a serger, which would have made this 10x easier, but oh well  Undecided
126  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Happy birthday husband! on: May 23, 2005 01:55:49 PM
I bought my husband a video game for his birthday because that's what he wanted. But I always make something personal, so I made him this:

it looks awful in the picture, I don't know why. In real life it's great. There is no fading around the design, it was a flash reaction, I think.

there's a close up of the gryphon. He likes those. It looks like a little red is showing through on the flank, but I looked real close on the shirt itself and it looks fine. *shrug* stupid camera.
127  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I love my owl belt! on: May 16, 2005 07:28:47 AM
It's hard as heck to take pictures of yourself wearing a belt.




I bought the pink webbing and owl acetate ribbon and the metal ends from les bon ribbon and the buckle from an army surplus website. It took me 10 minutes to make and looks more professional than some I bought from expensive stores.

Lately I've been loving the owls. I bought a tank top that said "Up owl night, sleep owl day."
128  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / tank with side slits (my favorite so far) on: May 13, 2005 11:42:42 AM

close up of the slit in the side:


sorry about all my tank tops... i'm still afraid to try sleeves!
129  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My version of t-shirt underwear on: May 02, 2005 09:38:31 AM
No underwear modeling for me. I'm not as brave as some of you. Also, my husband said no. Grin

back:

front:

the bow is a drawstring. It goes all the way through the string.
I made it completely out of the t-shirt. No elastic or other waistband. the hem of the shirt is now the part that goes around the legs. I just stretched it as I sewed, and made sure the t-shirt didn't stretch while I was sewing.
And the "string" (the part that goes around the waist) is made from folding a 2-in wide strip of shirt twice to make binding.
I'm very happy with them!
130  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / flirty tied-straps tank top on: April 29, 2005 11:35:36 AM
I got a cute t-shirt from Japan a few years ago, and like all my whites, it got stains in the pits. I used to wear it under a floppy light blue zip hoodie to hide them, but I wanted to be able to wear it alone again (plus it's sort of a guinea pig for another recon I'm afraid to try). So I made this:

Here's the shoulder tie:

The back looks just like the front except without the picture.
I used a package of double-fold fleece blanket binding for the trim. It was the easiest thing I've ever made. It looks terrible up close because I wasn't careful and I was distracted because my husband wasn't home when he said he'd be.
