1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Pride T-shirt on: May 19, 2007 11:36:43 AM
With Birmingham (UK) Pride weekend coming up, I read through all the threads here on stencilling and textile paint, and decided to make my own pride t-shirt. So I went out and stacked up on paint and a hobby knife, then I cut up a sponge (as you do), and this is the result:

I'm quite pleased with it!
Normally it always takes about 5 attempts to get a new technique right, but due to all the advice and tutorials here, it only took one go! So thanks to everyone who has shared their tips and tricks!

Here's a picture of my stencilling gear:

And I wish I had a picture of my face, when I was cutting the stencil and the little inside bit of the loop of the R came out too LOL
It was sort of like this:


Stupidly I hadn't counted on that one. (Yes I am blonde.) But with the help of an extra pin, and some careful dabbing, I got the job done Smiley

2  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Hot head yay! on: August 18, 2006 02:50:44 PM
Previously I made the hothead way too small and it only fit my puppet, but I'm so proud that I now made it big enough!

My lovely girlfriend modeling it for me:

Small turned out to be very very small, and now my mega-wuppie has something to keep him warm in winter:

Oops hehe

Oh well, I'm proud. It's the first time I have managed to follow a pattern, and I didn't drop a stitch. All I have to do now is make myself a bigger one.
To be continued.. Cheesy
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Stitch (of Lilo & Stitch) pattern? on: March 20, 2006 12:29:48 PM
Does anyone have a pattern for a softie of Stitch (of Disney's Lilo & Stitch)?
I kind of promised to make one for my girlfriend's birthday.

Does anyone know of a pattern in a book, or has anyone attempted to make Stitch before?

Any tips would be most welcome too! For instance, patterns that would lend themselves well to some adaptation, or pointers on how to create Stich kind of ears or eyes?

I'd be most grateful for any help!
