61  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Fabric Markers & a Vintage Pillowcase on: August 13, 2005 02:34:58 PM
I made this skirt from a vintage pillowcase from the thrift store. I just ripped open the seam on the closed end, sewed some elastic to the top, and made a slit in the back (it was fitting too snugly around the bottom). And to add a little extra to the pattern, which is pretty but pale, i used a fabric marker- has anyone else used these? they are THE BEST!! i was going to embroider around some of the flowers, which would have taken days, even months, but instead i took out my lovely fabric pen, and it was done within the hour!


62  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Fabric Flowers from Vintage Fabric on: July 23, 2005 05:20:43 PM
Yeah, i know, more of these flower pins!!! I used a plastic skull charm for the first flower and an old button for the second... I found some of the tutorials on the board a little too origami-like (read:HARD!) so these are literally rolled up pieces of fabric strung together.


63  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Thrift Store Dress to Skirt- Easy Peasy Recon *Now With Matching Skull Pin!* on: July 23, 2005 09:22:12 AM
I picked up this dress for $0.90 at the thrift store. Looks great on the hanger, but when you wear this type of dress you have to weigh about 90 pounds and have no breasts to speak of! I just used a seam ripper to take off the top part, and that elastic band served as a waist- no sewing at all!

Just SEEING those blank clay pots makes my hands itch!


65  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Tarot Card Table on: July 19, 2005 03:54:53 PM
I found this table in the alley (I find a surprising amount of things there...), lugged it back to my apartment, and covered it in acrylics and tarot cards. It has achieved that "aged" look after years of use and misuse, but i like how it looks like I did it on purpose!




66  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Stenciled Bird Dresser on: July 19, 2005 03:45:25 PM
I posted this in housewares as well, but I stencilled it, so I figured it belonged here too! I repainted this entire dresser and used a file folder stencil and silverpaint pen to draw on the birds. Don't mind the scratch, this is over a year old and gets a LOT of use!

67  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Revamped Stenciled Bird Dresser on: July 19, 2005 03:39:00 PM
I found this dresser unused and unwanted in our apartment building's storage. It was a boring wood dresser- I painted it and used a stencil (cut out of a file folder, nothing fancy) for the birds. It got a little scratched on the top (its over a year old) so I'm thinking of doing another coat of paint. All in all, it didn't take me too long and it looks MUCH better than before!

68  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / BIG Nautical Star Mirror on: July 19, 2005 03:33:55 PM
I picked up this mirror in the alley a while ago- it is decoupaged with pages from an old "how-to" tarot card book- I used ModPodge, of course. The stars were done with paint pens and the border was painted with acrylics. There are also some micah (sp?) flakes bordering the top and inside of the mirror. Unfortunately, the mirror weighs in at around 25 pounds, so I am having a hell of time figuring out how and where to hang it!


69  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Bird & Sewing Machine Stencils on: July 19, 2005 03:17:55 PM
I made these quite a while ago using acryclic paints. I think they have held up pretty well in the wash, so I'm happy about that! The sewing machine stencil started off without a border, but after an unfortunately LARGE smudge of paint, I had to improvise....


70  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Sailor Jerry Stencil/Hand-Painted/Iron-On Tank! on: July 19, 2005 02:55:39 PM
I loved this Sailor Jerry design, and I decided to do an inkjet transfer. I didn't really like how it turned out, so I used the transfer as a guide and handpainted it with acrylics. I'm very curious to see what the wash does to it!
