11  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Vintage Pillowcase-Revamped Photo Album (I need your suggestions!) on: May 24, 2006 07:41:10 PM
Thanks for the kind words! After this album has sat on my kitchen table for a couple of days, and I still can't think of the PERFECT thing to put on the front, I've decided to leave it as is! I just posted another album that I made, you can see it here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=97399.msg919969#msg919969

I think everyone should make one of these! They are so simple and I've already been able to scratch two things of of my "to make for celebrations" list.
12  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Tattoo Your Photo Albums on: May 24, 2006 07:38:28 PM
This is my second recovered cheap looking photo album. I made another one for my other sister's graduation (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=96974.0). This one is made from the Alexander Henry tattoo fabric, for my other little sister's birthday. Super easy with spray on adhesive and felt.

I love that I don't even have to iron the fabric before i put it on the albums- and everything still comes out looking so finished! This took me about an hour and I'm pretty happy with it.

My little sister's highschool graduation is coming up and I decided to put together an album of her growing up. I got a cheapy cheap big photo album at Target and recovered it with a vintage pillowcase- I used spray adhesive, which is AMAZING, fabric pens to outline the flowers, and a glue gun and felt for the inside (to cover the messy edges of the fabric).

My question is this: Should I put her name on the front? I wanted to put just her first name, but I'm struggling with what would look attractive...iron ons, an embroidered patch, stenciled letters...there are too many options! What do you think??

Front:


Inside:


Any suggestions welcomed and very much appreciated!

Beautiful- looks professionally made! Did you have any difficulty with the sleeves?

I used my machine to stitch it on- with black thread on the spool and green thread in the bobbin. The tag was super easy and quick to make- it would even be quicker to use a fabric pen (which would probably only work on lighter fabrics such as this one). I just stiffened it up with interfacing.

Thanks girls! I am officially unafraid of applique and will be doing it all the time now!

Posted this a while back...but it fits in here! I started with a wooden plaque that can probably be found all over thrift shops at this point...i thought it was cute but it didn't really fit in with my current kitchen. I used recipe books from the thrift store and makeshift stencils to piece everything together.

Fits much better in my kitchen, which has a lot of reds:

I found this well-fitting shirt at the thrift store, but it had a Whole Foods applique on it...So i stencilled a skull on an old pillowcase, applied interfacing, and stitched it over the Whole Foods logo.

Placement (the little green box is where the back tag is stitched on, you can't see it when I'm wearing it):

Tag on the back (hand written with acrylics):


I'm terribly frightened of applique and somehow I always screw it up, but this was super easy, maybe because I'm familiar with stencilling, so the task didn't seem as daunting!

Thanks guys! Yep, my boyfriend loves the ugly dolls and we have a lot. I complain we will never have a grown up looking apartment with all the toys he keeps floating around the place!

I haven't posted in FOREVER. So here's a little something. I made this for my boyfriend, the little guy is my own creation, I used contact paper for the stencil, and wrote the quote by hand. I use plain old acrylic paint for all of my stencils. It tends to wear a bit, but I like the look of it.
