1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / How i rocked out Race for the Cure tshirt on: July 05, 2012 08:10:24 PM
hey, all:)  Long time no crafting for me since i had a baby 3 years ago (babies and toddlers and needles and pins dont mix!)  Anyway, I finally broke my machine out of storage a couple of weeks ago to rock out my race for cure tshirt.  Do you like?  I just sew up the sides, cut out the neck hole, and cut the sleeves straight down in half.  No more oversized boxy tshirt - hooray!

i would keep them long.  you can always push them up, just like you did in the photo, but you cant make them longer once you crop them.  personally i am tired of 3/4 length sleeves and feel like manufacturers are just going cheap on the fabric when i buy a shirt like that.  longer looks more luxe
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Rollerderby Awards on: November 03, 2008 11:30:43 AM
My rollerderby league had its annual Awards Ceremony last night and I was one of several who volunteered to make the "awards".  I picked to make the award for Best Pivot and Life of the Party- after receiving 2 cheapy frames from our Events head.  Our league color is pink so I chose that for the background.  I used construction paper for the most part.  Glitter makes everything better so I used lots of it- and some glue-on rhinestones.  I think they came out okay.  I was going to write Best Pivot or Life of the Party on them but my handwriting wasnt so good and I wasnt smart enough to start on this until a few hours before the party.  (I couldve printed something in a cool font at work....)  Anyway, I think they are fairly representative of the two awards.  The Life of the Party was challenging since I was foregoing any handwriting or letters.  I needed to come up with something that conveyed Party Girl without any words.  So, I hand-drew a pin-up type girl,


Then exacto-cut her out of some thick watercolor paper I stole off my artist boyfriend (and got reprimanded for bc apparently its 70 bucks a tablet Roll Eyes):


Then, traced her onto pink construction paper, cut her out , doused her in spray adhesive, and covered her in glitter.  Then glued her on the construction paper and added a league sticker and some rhinestones.  I followed the same method for the Best Pivot award- The pivot wears a stripe down her helmet so that was easy. 

Then I hung them outside to dry

and then framed them up.  Voila!


Sorry for the fuzzy pics, I need a real camera Undecided

Lovely!  And I love that your neighbor taught her how to do it.  Crafting is such a great hobby for teens and tweens- not only is it healthy and creative but it also lets them use their skills to display their own unique identities.  Bravo!
