I live in Chicago, and read an article about two people who are going around the city, stencilling mix tape images in strange and hidden spots and hiding mix tapes under them. I actually found one, and here is the stencil that was included with the tape. Here's a link to the website- http://www.illcutyou.com/tapes. Start a mixtape project where you live!!!!
I have a BUNCH of housekeeping and craft magazines from the 50's. i went on an Ebay binge and amassed them all- I should be posting lots of them soon! Here's a couple pages I loved. They would be great for stencilling and stitching.
I had never seen one of these until just yesterday. My friend pulled one out of a box of her favorite mementos. and HOLY CRAP THESE THINGS ARE CUTE!! She had a little one with a bunny outfit and purple hair. They have shifty eyes which give them an endearing, but totally creepy look. They are so tiny, and I think they would look great in a photo project. Like Kiddle, posed against a brick wall, Kiddle standing on the pavement...URBAN KIDDLE!! Does anyone have one of these dolls?!
I've had this sweater for a while, it's my favorite winter sweater. I got the idea for the camera from an old Readymade, which suggested embroidering this design (and some others, including a cassette tape, boombox, record player) on pillows. Every time I wear it, someone inevitably comments on it. Most times though, they are asking, "what IS that?!" I had just started embroidering, so the design is a little smushed, and the stitches are big and loopy!
So...my boyfriend has a CRAPLOAD of old t-shirts that don't fit him anymore, but that he wants to keep for sentimental reasons (old band tshirts, etc.). we cut out the logos on the tshirts and scrapped the rest of the blank tshirt, so now i have a bag full of tshirt designs. i want to make a big book called "the tshirt museum" where all his favorite old tshirts are mounted and titled, like works of art hanging in an art museum...like a scrapbook or photo album, with these tshirt scraps.
Anyone know what the best way would be to make these shirt scraps really, really STIFF so that they can be easily mounted? I'm not really familiar with interfacing, maybe that would be the trick...or perhaps a crapload of spray starch??! help me out! i've already made him a tshirt quilt in the past, and i'm not really up to doing that again!
Inspired by the great revamps for all rounds of the thrift store picture revamp swaps, i did one of my own. I liked this little wood plaque thing, but it was a little too 60's for my bright red 50's kitchen. I used paints, modpodge, and a page from a vintage cookbook.
Anybody else as excited as me for this?! The list of vendors is up on the website http://www.renegadecraft.com/# as of 8/08/05. I'm seeing a lot of new vendors, there will be 150 this time around! The park is going to be stuffed with people!!!!
Just wanted to show off a little fabric pen magic. I outlined the existing pattern with black pen, but the possibilities are endless if you have a steady hand a design in mind. These things were used in a project on the boards a while ago, and I'm so happy i bought them- they are permanent, washable, and require no irons or heat setting.
Sooo...being in an absolutely LOVELY corporate job, I am forced to wear ugly and boring dress shirts every day. I spiffed this one up a little with some embroidery. Let me know what you think, or just commiserate with me about your corporate job!
