Under front flap, more pockets. I've been meaning to line the flap, but haven't gotten around to it.

Wearing it.  Smiley
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Face painting with glasses on: October 06, 2012 02:17:43 AM
I'm going as a fairy this year. I wanted to wear a pretty mask, but I wear glasses now and it would be weird. I'm kind of stuck with face painting. I wanted to do a pretty design around my eyes, but i'm afraid my glasses would ruin the effect. Any suggestions?
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Decorating my violin case on: September 12, 2005 04:32:10 PM
I play the violin, and I have just a plain black cloth-covered case. It looks kind of like this. I wanted to stencil on it to make it unique so I could know it's mine. Do you have any ideas what I could put on it? Not some little flowers or something, though. Should I just do random funny stencils or my name or what? Maybe you could use paint or some other image program to draw on the picture to show me your ideas? Visual aids are nice. Thanks!
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Blame The TV (pics are fixed) on: August 28, 2005 11:20:23 PM
I absolutely love the design "Blame the tv" from threadless.com, and when I saw it made into a stencil on freewebs.com/stencily I knew I must do it. Here's how it turned out:

It took forever to cut out, but it was well worth it. I think I'm in love with this shirt.  Cheesy
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Men's Coat to Messenger Bag on: August 27, 2005 06:57:28 PM
It went from this:

to this:

And it's reversable, so this is it reversed:

And me wearing it:

It's made out of wool, and the lining/reversed side is cotton. The outside is a herringbone pattern (it kind of looks just grey because the pattern is so small) and the lining is pinstriped on the flap and sides and bottom, and the sides are plain black. There are two pockets on the inside/pinstripe side and one under the flap on the wool side. It took forever to make, but I love love love it. What do you think? The pictures are kind of bad quality. heh. I used this as a guide.

Sorry. Pictures are fixed.
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Too many clothes, not enough ideas. (lot's of pictures) on: August 13, 2005 04:32:05 PM
I have a ton of old clothes that I decided I should reconstruct in some way. The problem is that I don't know what to do with them. I am asking you to lend me your creative genius. What should I do with these?

I made this shirt. It needs a stencil or something. Or is it good as it is?

Pants that have wonderful stripes but are too small.

Hideous pants that were my mom's but got a hole in them.

A cute pinstriped dress that is too small. I'd make it into a skirt, but I don't wear skirts that much.

A black shirt that fits okay but is plain. It also has sleeve details, but I always wear a jacket, so that wouldn't be any good.

Too small

Way too small, and the side seams are all twisted. I didn't realize it was defective when I bought it.


Plain. Dark blue


I apologize for the abundance of photos, and the bad quality.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 3 shirts on: August 06, 2005 07:06:17 PM
This is a combination of a stripey tank top and a black t-shirt. I stenciled on the cassete tape and stuff.

This is from the back of a paisley button-up shirt and a plain white t-shirt. I don't really like this one much...

I resized this and added buttons around the neckline and stenciled the robot

That's all...
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / 6 Shirts I've done. (image heavy) on: July 25, 2005 02:09:20 AM
Okay so I'm pretty new here. Been lurking for a while and I've really been going crazy with the senciling. I've also done some reconstructions and stuff too. So...yeah. Pictures!

The front of a shirt that I made from scratch. No pattern, not reconstructed. I just had this cute fabric with strawberries on it, and I knew I had to make something out of it:

A close up of the stenciled strawberry on the front (I don't know why it looks green. heh.) :

The back. I guess you could turn it around and wear it with this being the front. What do you think? :

A green tank top that I stenciled. Sorry for the bad quality picture:

Close up of the stencil. The color is off. :

Reconstructed and stenciled:

Reconstructed. (Aaah. Please don't kill me for posting a reconstruction in the stenciling forum.) :

Me wearing a reconstructed and stenciled Blindside shirt:

The floor wearing it:

Close-Up of the design and lace. It says "Blindside" in case you couldn't read it:

Blood Brothers Shirt. Just stenciled:

Different close-up:

Okay. wow. That was a lot. Opinions?
