unfortunately, i had to use my phone to take the pics.

its a freezer paper stencil on cotton fabric with plain old acrylic paint

just in case you aren't familiar with D.B. Cooper, here's the wikipedia article.  Being from Oregon, I'm a big fan.

13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / D.B. Cooper bag on: March 27, 2008 07:31:36 PM
The bag itself is extremely simple, so I'll spare you pics of the inside.  It is made of medium weight cotton; the side seams are turned and stitched, the bottom seam is a french seam, and the seams that make the bottom square are Hong Kong seams.

I made the stencil from freezer paper. Man, I heart freezer paper.

The straps are made from a belt I really like but never wore.

14  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / buddy scooter seat cover on: July 17, 2007 11:51:55 PM
i wanted a seat cover for my new scooter, but i didn't want to shell out $60 for the ones i found online, so i made this one for about $8.

the original seat is white, but i thought houndstooth was pretty groovy

i draped the seat with newsprint to make the pattern.  its made of 4 panels sewn together with elastic gathering. the seaming didn't come out too well in the photo, but here's a picture anyway:
