21  YAY! I made a HAT! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by xstillxherex72 on: August 23, 2005 04:00:55 PM
Well when I first saw this hat (at this site : http://clubweb.interbaun.com/lavarocket/radar.pdf yes i saw this in a post at craftster but i can't find it sooo...thank you to you, whoever you are, for it!!!) i knew i had to make it, so, i did!
it was extrememly easy except for attaching the brim, which was pretty hard.
Its made out of brown corduory from pants I found at a thrift store.


the only problem (i couldn't get the angle) is that it's alittle boxy. and you can see where my stitches show, when i was foolishly using white thread, but i was so proud, i put the thread in the sewing machine without guidance! haha.


ahhh weird eyes! lol


the hand model


awww sparkle my cat is modeling! (she actually doesn't like to very much.)

much love

22  Re: Denim Corset Styling Help in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by xstillxherex72 on: August 10, 2005 09:29:06 AM
or you could make buttonholes instead of using grommets. I prefer those anyways.. grommets don't seem to like me much.

Denim you can totally use! just as long as it's not stretch denim, you should be fine.

button holes? you mean like cut a hole and then thread around it to prevent fraying? here's a pic of what i think you mean:

(it is the one on the rightside)

23  First circle skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by xstillxherex72 on: August 08, 2005 09:45:14 AM
Well I finally did it. I turned that old checkered sheet that i love so very much into a circle skirt and ended up not doing the best, but I am still very proud of it, because I did it completely on the sewing machine, which I have just started to use.


this is the front. my problem was the waistband. instead of waiting til tommorow to get some t-shirt for it from a thrift store, i used the un-stretchy fabric from the sheet. joy joy joy. I measured it too wide (i think its 5 - 6 inches) and it doesnt really 'hug' to me, but sorta flares out at the top. So i'm thinking of cutting the waistband to be shorter. would this work?


from the side.

the black thingy is a wide belt that I'm using so that people can't see the flare at the waistband. there is also a zipper at the waistband but the belt covers it Cry

much love

i'm thinking of adding tulle to it. can i buy some at Walmart? Zellers??

24  Logo Design Help in Crafty Business Discussion by xstillxherex72 on: August 08, 2005 07:28:37 AM
OK. So I have the idea and all for the logo I wanted to design, but we only have this one weird photo-shop-type-thing that doesnt work at all, and Paint, but I can't master straight lines there. Sooo...would anyone be willing to help? These are the two pics I've come up with...


this one I had made for the tags, but now it seems too dark. The little red things at the top are hearts.


This one I made for my site, and I am ok with this one, but it doesn't say the name on it (Thats Salty!) and it doesnt look to professional, and I'd like one to put on a tag.

Comments? Criticissm? Ideas? Make me one? (I'll give you credit!!!)

much love

25  Re: Drum Brainstorming in Discussion and Questions by xstillxherex72 on: August 05, 2005 07:35:37 AM
Your idea's are so cool! And you've given me inspiration!
What about a skull with drumsticks instead of crossbones as a stencil??
One of those little round bags designed as a drum somehow - or long enough to put drumsticks in??
Attach drumsticks to fabric somehow for the handles??
Here's drawings of my ideas:


if you can see it.

and also i have these drumstick key chain thingy. the drumsticks are about 3" each. what can i do with them? i was thinking earrings, but would that be too heavy?



much love

27  New Wrisbands in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by xstillxherex72 on: August 03, 2005 04:18:59 AM
I am slowly creating an obsession  for myself for making these. I put my other ones up in 'Stencils' but I didn't find these ones fit the description enough. And I couldn't put em under recon-d cause the just aren't. So here they are:


OK, OK, I'll admit I used a stencil for the bomb (from stencilry) but the 'BOOM!', i did myself.


it's long enough to put a thumbhole in, but I decided not too  Tongue


the back panel thingy, made from a different shirt. (the main part is a little kid's shirt.)

ok, onto #2:


The Leopard Print panel, which isn't in the back too much.


See, that's the bottom of it. And theres the thumbhole I put in. I stitched around it for security  Grin

And thats all! I was going to put 'Freeky Deeky' on the 2nd one, but I decided not.

much love

28  Re: My Edward Wristband in Stenciling: Completed Projects by xstillxherex72 on: August 01, 2005 01:50:01 PM
aw i love it! were did you get the stencil?
I'm not exactly sure, so here is the pic:


also, at stencilry, there are some more Edward stencils, which I would've used if I had more time to cut them out. also, in the pic is his eyebrow or top of his eyelid, but I didn't notice it until I was done the rest and I didn't want to screw it up.

thats a really cute way of making use tof scraps!
great idea Smiley
turned out pretty good
thanks! i had the t-shirt scraps from a mishap of trying to make a t-shirt skirt. lol/ but now im beginning to get some t-shirts to use from Frenchies. I just got a little kid's rainbow striped shirt. such fun.

29  My Edward Wristband in Stenciling: Completed Projects by xstillxherex72 on: July 29, 2005 06:08:59 AM
Well, I was showing my friend my other wristbands that I've made (I dont know the link but its the Recycling & Zero is my Hero) and she said that she loved them. Then I showed her the Edward Scissorhands stencil I was going to use for the next wristband and she fell in love. (We have memories with that good ol' movie...haha). So I made one for her!! Yay!

Here are the pictures! Yay!

his face is sideways cause I couldnt get my arm and the webcam to cooperate.


the back "panel" thingy. I used sharpie and scotch tape to make the stripes. But the sharpie was running out.  Sad But the sharpie I used for the Edward Stencil was brand-new.


the inside seam on the better half, lol.


my desk is so stylish, isnt it? The stitches are supposed to show.

This wristband fits alot better because I had made the mistake last time to use alot of space for seam allowences, which I didn't even need, so I cut them out.
The material is from a white t-shirt.

much love
(i'm givin' it to her today. yay! lol)

30  Zero is my Hero & Recycling - pic heavy in Stenciling: Completed Projects by xstillxherex72 on: July 28, 2005 11:57:27 AM
So, I wasn't sure which to put this under; Stencils (because of the stencil use), Recon-d clothing (cause I used t-shirt material) or Trinkets (because its a wristband type thing. So, all I can say is, here they are:

This is my Zero one. Material used from two different shirts. Its not fabric paint, its a sharpie and a highliter. Yes, the stitches are supposed to be messy and contrasting to the fabric!


The inside seam.


The back. I'm not for sure or not, but I might put a large "0" with "Zero is my hero".


Action Shot! The only problem with it is that its a little baggy.


OK, So now heres my recycling one:
(This one has blue stitches and is neater than the Zero one. As well, the stencil is actual fabric paint, put on using a small foam roller.)


Action Shot! This one fits alot more 'snugly'.


The back of this one. I wasn't originally going to have this panel type thingy there, but then I realized it wasn't going to fit without it. (I thought the material would stretch more.) Then I wanted to use blue material, but this was all I have.


I'm planning on doing a ton more, I love them! I already cut out some more stencils for newer ones.
All the stitches are hand-stitched, and considering my experience, it took a while!
The Zero stencil is from stencilry I'm pretty sure, and the recycling, i think i just found the picture off of the internet and cut it out.

much love
