11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: ♪My Hat Plays Music!♪ [img heavy] on: April 06, 2007 11:02:11 AM
Thanks for all the nice comments, everybody Grin

I didn't use a specific pattern for the hat...I just cut and stitched until things looked right.  I made copies of all of my pattern pieces so I wouldn't have to rely on luck again.

Unfortunately none of my friends want one yet...(They claim the urge to use it during class would overtake them and make them fail.)...so I don't have a tute for you guys. Undecided  Don't worry...I'm sure my friends will come around soon. Cheesy

This could easily be classified as the craziest idea I've ever had.  But I got an mp3 player for my birthday (6 months ago), and I've hardly every used it because I hate hate hate cords hanging around my neck. (not to mention those earbud things don't fit at all...)

Thus...the 'Hat-phones' were born.

You can kinda see the mp3 player poking out of the hidden pocket in the lining...

A better picture of the attached headphones cord and the secret pocket.

The top of the hat, the color's a little wonky...it's hard to take pictures of the top of your head! Tongue ...plus a close-up of the coolest button ever (25 cents for a pack of 5 of these at the thrift store)

(I think this could be rather useful for those long lecture-type classes...as long as I keep it soft enough so I can still hear the teacher.)

I should probably clarify that the headphones were stitched onto a piece of fleece, and stitched to the inside of the band so they sit right over my ears...I noticed no decrease in sound quality, and when I wore it to town, nobody around seemed to hear anything...so it's all good.

I wish I had some pictures of the inside wiring and such...but I was so caught up in my inspired streak that I totally forgot...sorry guys Undecided...if perchance one of my friends wants one, I'll take some process pictures...

Thanks for looking anyway! Grin

Close-up of the Pickles shirt...I thought about adding more stuff...but it looks pretty cool plain

Dr. Jonathan Twink-let-its and a banana sticker.  My 11 year old sister did this one...her first stencil ever...she deserves a cookie...and even better, she's agreed to let me borrow it!

Toki...the paint was wet when I took this picture so the color's a little wonky...I stenciled the outline and words then painted in the colors...pretty cool...

Thanks for looking!

I decided to do an instructable/tute for this last night when I couldn't sleep.  If anybody has questions about it, feel free to ask...

actually i have a question...is the pick guard made out of interfacing?
No, actually I drew a basic outline of my pickguard and stenciled it on the denim with white acrylic paint.  I then decided it looked too slapped on, so I sandpapered it so it would feel soft like the rest of the denim and have a bit of a worn look...

Thanks for the comments and questions...I'll try to get the tute up sometime tonight or early tomorrow...Happy New Year everyone...!
16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Guitar-Shaped Backpack (with TUTORIAL LINK!) on: December 28, 2006 08:26:05 PM
I've never made a purse or bag before...much less one with no pattern.  But when my backpack decided to split and spill all my books on the floor one day, I decided to give it a shot.  I stole the straps from my broken backpack, but the rest is all my work (the little decorations are just pins and patches I found in my junk)...I think it'll do nicely for a semester of college...

I reinforced the front panel with some thin poster board stuff I found in the garage, so it holds its shape while I wear it.  (I sprayed it with laquer to waterproof it somewhat, but I don't expect it'd survive on a hike through the icy slopes of mount everest)  I decided on a side zippy because I didn't want to mess with the zipper and curves at the same time...turns out I had to go around the curve anyway...oh well I still love it...

Comments are always appreciated, and even though I didn't get any in progress pics, I remember how to do it well enough to make a tute if anybody wants one...

Thanks For Looking! Grin

17  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Show off your hair! And questions about hair styles! on: December 23, 2006 07:57:10 PM
It's been a while since I posted to this thread, but since I decided to do something that's asked about lots (going more than four shades lighter at home), I thought I'd post pics before I asked my questions.

I started here (hi-octane orange over faded red and black hair)


After three days of chemicals and a few protein treatments, here I am


It turned out to be the hardest hair color EVER to take a picture of...as you can tell by my washed out skin and greenish tinge to the hair.  The one on the left is closest to my real color.  I think it came out pretty good considering I saved 100 bucks doing it at home.  (there's not that big of a color difference all the way down the hair either...my camera's just stupid)

I don't know if I love it or hate it, we'll see once I figure out what kinda make-up and clothes go with such a drastic color change...(suggestions for that would be very welcome)...although my hair isn't damaged at all considering, a haircut is in order...  Would it look ok if I cut my hair off right at the shoulder and then shortened up the layers just a little?  Maybe trim the bangs too?

Sorry to ramble...it's just that I haven't had blondish hair in more than three years...and I'm finding myself a little lost...THANKS FOR READING Grin
18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Sheet to Hoodie!!! on: December 20, 2006 05:29:40 PM
wow! i love it! did you use any sort of pattern with it?

Thanks!  I didn't use a pattern, per se, but I did look at a few of my existing hoodies for reference, and a few of my sister's non-stretch shirts.  Then I kind of mixed what I saw...
19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Sheet to Hoodie!!! on: December 20, 2006 05:20:37 PM
I wanted to make hoodies and I decided I wanted to try making them out of bedsheets.  I've been collecting random sheets for the last six months, but I wanted to make sure I knew what I was doing before I went ruining them.  Today when I found this old transformers sheet, I knew it was the one I wanted to experiment on.  I'm pleasantly surprised with my result, and although the pattern's a little too cluttered and maybe a bit too psycho to wear outside, I'll definitely romp around the house and sleep in it.  It's thin, but it's baggy enough for me to slap a long sleeved shirt underneath it and still be warm.

As always thanks for looking!!!

20  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Flowery Green Halter Dress on: December 16, 2006 03:35:01 PM
I got this odd fabric from the thriftstore for a dollar...and decided to try making a dress out of it.  I still have 5+ yards of the stuff...and a charming new dress...

The pics are kinda crap because I couldn't find anybody to take pictures of me wearing it...BOO!

http://imageigloo.com/images/60781front.JPG
I was making a stupid face so I cut it out...
http://imageigloo.com/images/7511001back.JPG
The back isn't crooked like that, I'm just standing kinda funky...
http://imageigloo.com/images/4387PREVIEW.JPG
and there's my final attempt to get my face and the dress to cooperate in the same picture

It doesn't have a zipper...the material doesn't stretch...so it's pretty much MAGIC that I manage to get it off and on...  I have some old ninja turtle and batman sheets that might look cool in this style, and when I try that I'll add some elastic in the back to give it a little stretch...I'm still proud of myself for dreaming up my own design...so it's all good...

Thanks for looking!!!
