91  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Skirt to Dress on: May 19, 2006 07:35:49 PM
 I love my thrift store. I bought a red polka dot dress, size 8 or so, for $1.50. A few hours later, I came up with this:

 Please, please ignore the lame pose. I am very bad at posing for pictures, and I was looking over my shoulder at the time :/
 Anyway, I just added a little shaping to the top, sewed on straps and a waistband. It came out super girly, so I doubt I'll ever wear it. Darn :/
92  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / *Whee!!* Toaster Messenger Bag on: May 15, 2006 07:57:24 PM
 Yes, you heard that right. A Toaster Messenger bag:

Detail of the Toaster:

 I got tired of having a plain old curdoroy bag, and everyone has a Nightmare Before Christmas, My Chemical Romance, etc. messenger bag... and I wanted something interesting. Also, it was very late at night... so that is part to blame.
 I pretty much just cut out a few squares and rectangles and sowed them togather. I sowed the bag together backwards so many times, it's not funny.

93  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Making cap sleeves on: May 15, 2006 07:22:03 PM
 I'm going to be converting another one of my skirts into a dress... but I need to have some sort of sleeve. I was thinking of adding a sleeve that's sort of shaped like this:

 The black is the actual sleeve and the red is the dress. I'm not sure what that type of sleeve is called. Anyway, how exactly would I go about making it? Do I just cut a triangle, or do I make an attached ribbon thing and then stitch the sleeve to that?
 Sorry if I'm being confusing. I just don't know how else to say it. Any help would be very appreciated!

94  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Removing Sharpie from Converse on: May 14, 2006 11:47:54 PM
 A while ago I thought it would be fun to draw on the white part of my Converse.... well, I'm sick of the design and I want to get it off. It is drawn with red and black sharpie, and I tried bleach which didn't help and rubbing alcohol only removed part of the stain. Would something like paint stripper work? Any help would be so appreciated!
95  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Looking for pictures... AND Paint options on: May 14, 2006 10:06:37 PM
 My first post! Yeah! Anyway, I'm going to be trying my hand at stenciling on a shirt, and I need help finding images. I am going to be taking a white shirt, and stanciling three ninjas in black down the left side. I would like to find ninjas in three different positions or stances. Such as with a sword, doing a kick in the air, etc. I looked online, and I am having a veyr hard time finding anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 Also, is it ok to use cheap fabric paint? Such as something from Hobby Lobby or Micheals? I don't know where I could buy anything else.
