41  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / I thought it was funny. Apparently not... on: May 26, 2013 09:28:08 AM
So I stenciled this shirt because I thought it would be funny to have a "sugar tits" shirt.
My mom said it looks stupid. My sister laughed but her sense of humor is similar to mine so it doesn't count.
In hindsight, it probably would have been better if I had white fabric paint so that I could put it on a colored t-shirt but I worked with what I had. But this is a pajama shirt so that doesn't matter Wink

I strategically positioned the "sugar cubes" so that when I put on the shirt, they would line up with my bust. Please excuse the bad photo: I was using my mom's old camera which no longer takes decent photos. My camera takes good pics but doesn't have a self-timer, neither does my mom's new camera. Go figure.

42  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Falling Skies logo shirt on: May 12, 2013 02:00:11 PM
My boyfriend loves the show Falling Skies so I stenciled the logo on a shirt for him. There's a smudge/splatter on it but I can live with it.

No action shot because he's on an offshore rig right now. He might not let me get an action shot, either because he doesn't like his picture taken.
43  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 86 ENTRIES / Wark-wark! Chocobo embroidery! on: May 01, 2013 10:30:30 PM

When I got smileyyogini's swap info and saw that she likes Chocobos, I couldn't resist embroidering this for her. He's done completely in satin stitch except for his outline, which is split stitch.
I drew a Chocobo after looking at various references then traced it onto the fabric using my lightbox.
44  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Daryl Dixon fangirl shirt on: April 29, 2013 02:52:00 PM
My dad got me into The Walking Dead but I missed most of the episodes due to work. So I bought seasons one and two on dvd to catch up a bit.
Like a lot of fans, Daryl is my favorite character (one reason is Norman Reedus is one of my favorite actors). I wanted an official shirt but after buying some craft supplies, I didn't have $20 for an official shirt so I made my own with a freezer paper stencil.

Action shot:

Yes, I am a barefoot zombie hunter. And my eyes are closed because of the sunshine.

A funny little story to go with it:
My dad didn't like my shirt because he taught me to shoot and said "If there's a zombie apocalypse, don't hide behind ANYONE! Defend yourself like I taught you to!" Then I explained why I made it and he laughed. I'll post the why later because it will have its own thread.
45  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Halter top from my own pattern on: April 18, 2013 09:49:57 PM
I made a halter top with my own pattern and it came out a little too revealing for my taste, hence the t-shirt underneath. I have since tweaked the pattern and will be making another, less revealing top with it later. I also need to widen and lengthen the straps a bit.
46  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Synthetic leather wallet (my first wallet) on: April 17, 2013 07:11:33 PM
Like a lot of guys, my boyfriend is in the habit of using his wallet 'til it comes apart. So I decided I would make him one.

I fused the synthetic leather to some heavy duck cloth to make it more durable. The trim is extra wide double fold bias tape. The ID pocket is made from a piece of a plastic bag (the one my comforter came in). It's simple but my BF doesn't like fancy wallets so it will suit him just fine.
I'm debating adding Velcro for closures.

ETA: I made my own pattern using one of my dad's old wallets as a guide.
47  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Monster High doll top, skirt, and dress on: April 15, 2013 12:13:57 AM
I adore the Monster High dolls so when I saw the Monster High Swap Round 2 I just HAD to sign up.
I didn't realize what I was getting myself into! These dolls are a challenge to sew for because of their arched backs.
After some struggling to make patterns, I came up with these two outfits.

I made strapless top using polka-dot calico cotton then I made the pleated mini skirt, which was repurposed from a Halloween costume accessory.

Every ghoul should have a little black dress so I made this dress from a light cotton fabric.
48  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Moogle hoopla, embroidered pouch, and Monster High hoopla on: April 14, 2013 11:55:59 PM
First up is the Moogle hoopla I embroidered for smileyyogini, who was my partner in the Gaming Swap. Its body, inner ear, and wings are made of felt and its nose and red ball are made of velveteen. The outline and detailing was done with black DMC embroidery floss on an alova suede background.

Next is the awesome pouch I sewed and embroidered for smileyyogini. I was inspired by a t-shirt she had in her Pinterest. The pouch is made of black twill, lined with purple felt, and the embroidery was done using DMC light effects neon green. You can't tell from the photo but the green gets MUCH brighter under flourescent lighting.

And last, but certainly not least, the Monster High logo. The skull is made of black alova suede and white felt and the bow is made of pink fleece. The eyes and outline were done with black DMC floss and it is on a quilting cotton background.
49  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Fashion doll rooting/re-rooting tutorial on: March 29, 2013 02:40:44 PM
I had a couple people ask how I root doll hair.
This is the first doll I've rooted and she doesn't have holes (or it would be re-rooting). Also, her head pops off rather easily because she is a Monster High Create-A-Monster custom so I can't tell you how to get off a doll's head.
On to the tutorial!
You need:
A doll's head
Doll needles (use the smallest one; mine are from Hobby Lobby)
Hair (synthetic is what I'm using)

First draw an outline of the hairline on your doll, if it has no holes. My doll has some hair already because she's the one I started with.

Cut the hair twice as long as you want the hair to be then tie a knot in the middle and trim the ends to make it even and thread the needle with one end of the hair. If you don't know what length you want the hair, make it longer so you can cut and style it later.
Put the needle through the neck hole and line it up with the hairline. To line it up, GENTLY push the needle and feel for it with your other hand, careful not to puncture it, in case it's not lined up properly. Carefully push the needle through once you've lined it up. Gently pull the hair through until the knot meets. Do the same with the other end, which should be hanging out the neck opening. Be careful not too get too close or you'll split it and that's not good. If you split it, you have to repair it.

For the hole spacing on a MH CAM doll, use a doll with holes for reference.

I hope someone finds this useful!
50  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Gambler earrings on: March 26, 2013 03:32:52 AM
Or "it's in the cards". I love things with a card motif so when I found these ace charms at Hobby Lobby I just had to make these.
