1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Looking for: Detroit Tigers / baseball gift ideas on: April 18, 2007 06:13:08 PM
Hey craftsters, I find myself in a predicament.

For my boyfriend's birthday last year, I made him a set of Bob Dylan coasters.  We'd only been dating a few months at the time and I didn't have too much money, so I thought I'd exercise my crafty skills.  Well, he LOVED them, and now I'm stumped.

See, now I have no idea what to make for his birthday this year (not until July, but I'm a pretty slow craftster!).  He's a HUGE Tigers fan, and I'd like to integrate that into an awesome craft for him.

Here's where I need your help -- what are some baseball/Tigers themed projects that I might be able to create for him?
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Got Prez? on: February 23, 2005 04:14:28 AM
I made this shirt for Presidents' Day -- I don't know anyone who actually celebrates this holiday, but I figured it needed more recognition.


The whole shirt, and nothing but the shirt (except for the wall and cabinet, heh)


The dudes: Abe Lincoln (blue), Thomas Jefferson (orange), George Washington (purple), Andrew Jackson (green), Woodrow Wilson (pink)


Are you ready for your close-up, Mr. Lincoln?
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Strong Bad and Cityscape cards on: February 23, 2005 04:04:07 AM
Here are a couple of cards I've made recently. 


This is a generic cityscape that I'm thinking about sending to a friend who just recently got promoted.  Each of the buildings was separately created and the windows (painstakingly) hand-cut.  All in all, it took probably about 45 minutes to an hour.  I'm happy with it, but I won't be doing it again soon!!


This was made for a friend's birthday -- he loves homestarrunner and we had this crazy inside joke where our arms move like robots, so SB's arms move.  A direct quote from him: "You are the coolest person ever!  Not only did you remember my birthday, but you made me a Strong Bad card with MOVING ARMS!" -- if that doesn't make a crafter feel appreciated, I dunno what does Smiley
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Stencil over an Iron-On? Also: Cursive? on: November 08, 2004 05:08:22 AM
Hi all!  Question:

Is it possible to (successfully) stencil something on an iron-on transfer?  It seems like it'd get all scratchy and messy.  (I'm trying to come up with alternative ideas for when the wise ones in the iron-on thread tell me I shouldn't put iron-on letters over an iron-on transfer...)

Also, is there any way to make a stencil using cursive writing?  I'd imagine that all of the letters would simply be filled in, instead of having the circle in the vowels, etc.  Suggestions?

Thanks!
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Embellishments OVER a transfer? on: November 08, 2004 05:04:51 AM
Hi all, I have a question. (Obviously!)

I'm looking to make a tshirt that has an iron-on transfer as the background of the design, but I also want to put text on the shirt (on the transfer part) as well.  Is it possible to use those iron-on letters on top of the transfer paper, or will that make one big melty mess of my iron?  Has anyone ever stenciled over an iron-on?  (I'll ask that question again in the stencil thread.)

Thanks for your help, craftsters!
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Harry Potter patterns? on: August 27, 2004 02:10:21 AM
Hi all, I am interested in cross-stitching some Harry Potter 'stuff' (I am pretty open to all suggestions!), but I am having trouble finding patterns.  I know there is a book that exists about HP cross-stitch, but I am more interested in stuff from the movies.

Does anyone have any patterns or know where I can find some?  Or even how to make my own.  Right now the only computer I have access to is at work, and it does not have Photoshop nor can I download anything, so any help is more than greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / bag from record album covers on: May 11, 2004 08:11:01 AM
This is my first post of actually posting a project, so if something comes out backward or upside down or in Latin or something else crazy, let me know and I'll fix it!

Anyway, this is a bag I made out of record album covers. 

Here is a front view:


And here is a side/rear view:


I am working on a tutorial with the next bag that I am making, and I hope to have that finished sometime this week.

Many thanks to web-goddess for her own excellent tutorial on her own site!  http://www.web-goddess.org/archive.php/postID/2416
