71  Love Hurts and True Romance in Stenciling: Completed Projects by thankyoulocust on: July 02, 2007 10:34:41 AM
Ok, so.  This is the first time I've ever done anything on an actual canvas.  The first one is a Kurt Halsey stencil that I got from stencilry.  I nixed the original words that went with it because the girl seemed really sad to me, so I picked something different.  Also, both of these are for my sister and she likes that kind of thing.  So, here's the kurt halsey one.

And this one is because True Romance is one of my sister's all-time favorite movies (mine too!).  I just googled to get the image and did some business in photoshop to stencilize it (totally not a word, but eh).  Then I cut out the foreground and glued it to the canvas.  I used a sharpie to color in all the black after I painted the foreground lavender.  Then I very lightly brushed on the turquoise color.  The words were freehanded.  It's one of my favorite lines from the movie.  There were quite a lot of steps involved, but I'm really happy with how this one turned out.

72  Birthday presents for mom in Crochet: Completed Projects by thankyoulocust on: July 01, 2007 10:12:38 PM
My mom's birthday is July 6th and we happen to be going to visit on that very day (we live in Tennessee and she lives in Mississippi with all the rest of my family).  Anyway, I made these things for her.  The little bag, I kind of altered a pattern for a clutch purse to make it smaller.  It's meant to hold all her cards and cash and whatnot.  I had to handsew all the lining (what a p.i.t.a.) and I scavenged the snap from one of my daughter's old purses.  The lining is actually a double thickness and I cut it from an old pair of pants that don't fit anymore.  I put 2 extra layers plus a layer of felt to reinforce where the snaps are so it won't stretch the crochet.  The butterfly came from a pattern on crochetpatterncentral and I plan on putting it one of those frames that's 2 pieces of glass sandwiched together.  Whaddya think?

The front:

the snap

The lining:

For some reason, some of the parts are backwards.  I don't know what I did wrong, but I don't think it's super noticeable.

73  Aqua Teens in Stenciling: Completed Projects by thankyoulocust on: July 01, 2007 01:18:55 AM
My husband and I collaborated on this shirt for our 4 year old son.  It was my idea and I made the stencils and did the words (had to freehand so they look kind of jacked up) and my husband airbrushed Master Shake.  Sebastian loves this shirt!!!

Haha!! This is his rocking out pose!

74  Sebastian on a Shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by thankyoulocust on: June 29, 2007 11:50:21 PM
So, this is my son Sebastian.  My hubby did some photoshop magic on a picture of him and then made a stencil and airbrushed it onto a shirt. 

Here's the original pic (heh, he was being spiderman, which explains the pose and he had been sick for a couple days, which explains the dark circles under his eyes):

And a couple of pics of the finished shirt:

75  Queen Head Wrap a la pinkyrican in Crochet: Completed Projects by thankyoulocust on: June 24, 2007 11:52:38 AM
Here's the head wrap I made for my daughter.  I got the pattern from a post by pinkyrican.  Here's the original post


Oh, and pinkyrican-to answer your last question, I did make it the same size to fit her.  You're right about it not mattering much because you can just tie it tighter to fit.  Again, thanks a million for the pattern.  My daughter wore it to church this morning and I had 4 people stop and ask us where we got it cause they loved it so much.  When I told them I made it, they were all like "Wow!  It's so pretty, etc. etc."  Don't mind the sloppy way I tied it.  My daughter was hurrying me up so she could watch a movie!!

76  World's Heaviest Baby Blanket IMG Heavy in Crochet: Completed Projects by thankyoulocust on: June 16, 2007 08:38:51 AM
So, I made this for my son, Dorian.  He'll be 4 months old on the 18th.  It took me the larger part of my pregnancy to finish, but I managed to get it done before he made his appearance!  It seriously weighs about 10 lbs or more.  He won't be able to carry it unassisted till he's about 5  Grin  And, just for kicks, I included some pics of Dorian and blankie together.  That last one is the first time he pushed himself up on his elbows like that and he was mightily impressed, which is why his eyes are so bugged out.  This is my last post with pics for at least a couple days, I swear!  I'm just so excited to have a place where I can show people the things I've made and have them understand just how much love and hard work went into it.  Thanks for looking!!

77  The Happy Couple--IMG Heavy in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by thankyoulocust on: June 15, 2007 02:56:43 PM
This is a gift I made for my sister-in-law and her soon-to-be husband.  They're getting married in September.  My SIL's wedding flowers are going to be daisies, hence the bride's bouquet and veil.  I modified this a bit from a pattern I bought on etsy from NeedleNoodles (changed the veil, added the bouquet, added the ball and chain).  It's called Lil' Spookies.  I mailed them on Monday and I wish they'd hurry up and get there.

78  My version of Marjorie's dragon IMG heavy in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by thankyoulocust on: June 15, 2007 11:49:21 AM
Well, this is the dragon I made for my 3 yr old son.  I added the little sword, which I just kind of made up on the fly, because the way I posed him, he looked like he needed something to hold and a sword seemed a logical choice.  His name is Darkness.  I think he looks melancholy.  Whaddya think?
