1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / HELP with Aisle Runner! on: June 17, 2010 09:19:47 AM
So my friend is getting married in October, and she has enlisted my help with making things for the wedding.  I would like to make her a personalized aisle runner, but the runners that I've seen in the store are CRAP!  They're this ugly plasticky tablecloth poly stuff that I know I'm going to get my heels stuck in.  I'm obviously looking for a fabric one, but with that comes price.  Anyone have experience with making one from scratch?  I'm thinking I could just buy some cheap-o flat sheets and sew them together, but then there would be seams.  I guess they wouldn't be that noticeable...  Any suggestions that won't break the bank (I'm thinking this will PROBABLY be the only time she uses the runner  Wink )?
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Felt Portrait of my Puppers on: January 05, 2008 04:58:28 PM
So I've been playing the Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass for forever long.  Over the Christmas break I decided it was time that I was going to beat it.  So when you beat the game (and briefly when you start it), it shows these incredible pictures of the characters in the game that are cutout shapes, kinda like a glorified South Park.  I thought they were so wonderful and I wanted to make some sort of project reflecting that.  So what better to portray than a picture of my furry son.  I used felt because I knew it would give me the layered look I wanted, it wouldn't fray, and it would be super-cheap.  I did all the details using embroidery floss.  I'm pretty pleased with how it came out.  Not perfect, but kinda childlike and pretty damn cute.



and of course the original Griswold
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Andy Samberg? That's Ka-Blamo! on: April 22, 2007 08:23:48 AM
So I absolutely adore all the Lonely Island doods, but I have a special place in my heart for dorky jews with shaggy hair.  After looking at all of the wonderful stencils people had made on this site, I decided to attempt my first of the always funny, Mr. Samberg.  I got the shirt at Wal-mart in the little boys department for 5.88 and some fabric paint for 77 cents.  I used a foam roller to put the paint on.  Spray adhesive was definitely my best friend during the process.  With all that shaggy hair to cover, I didn't have any problems with bleeding (MMM, what'd you saaaaaay.. for anyone who saw the "Dear Sister" digital short last weekend).

and because I am obsessive compulsive/emo/a loser, I needed buttons to put on my pants/jacket to match when I wear the shirt. (Went a little overboard with these...)


Thanks so much for looking!  I would love comments/criticisms!
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Goodbye/Thanks gift for students with special needs on: November 04, 2006 12:26:09 PM
I'm a block student (kinda like pre-student teaching) and I want to give all my kids a little thank-you-something for making my experience so enjoyable.  I have no clue where to start.  There's about 15 of em (so nothing too complicated that I can finish in about a week) and it's a high school life skills class that varies in age and ability from ages 14 - 20.  I want to make something gender neutral as well. Maybe a magnet with an inspirational quote? Some of the lower functioning kids might try to eat it though, and I don't need that. I'm really super-clueless about where to begin.  Any ideas would be much appreciated!
