21  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Can't be caught on: September 13, 2004 02:21:15 PM
This was SUCH a bitch to cut out! I think it came out nice though so its worth it.

I smudged up the edges [purposly] because I didn't like the way the clean lines looked. [The pictures don't do it justice]


[long story about that pose, lol]

I needed a new bag for school..


I got all the fabric/interfacing at WalMart, In total it was like $7, which is awesome!
23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Simple dress->skirt reconstruction on: September 01, 2004 02:55:28 PM
The other day I was cleaning out my closet and I found this rad dress that I had in 8th grade, and it just screamed 'Make me useable again!!!' [lol] so thats what i did.
The bottom was slanted downward before hand but it got cut off on the picture..
before:



After:


[it looks like the drawsting is off center, but the skirt is just folder over to fit on the hanger]
The drawstring is only on the front part, it doesn't go all the way around.

I know its very simple, but its my frist reconstruction so i've gotta start somewhere right!? Tongue
24  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / First stencil. //edit: 2nd [Aquabats] stencil added =] on: August 28, 2004 08:10:07 AM
I've seen the stuff people have stenciled here and everything is so rad I had to try it for myself. Tongue
[My digicam sucks beyond beliefe, so sorry about the quality of the pictures!! The shirt is really red]
Front:


Back:



I can't read, so the white fabric paint [i couldnt find cheap textile medium at Micheals] got all puffy and textured when I ironed it. =X I wish it hadn't, but it looks sorta cool.
In total it cost me about $4.50 [$1.40 for each bottle of paint, and about $1.50 for the sponge roller brush]. I already had the shirt from like a year ago [I think I wore it all of once for a school concert] and the cardstock I used for the stencil.

For the strap i used the waistband from the jeans



I really wish i had some interfacing! but i was all out. these stars were too rad to not use them somehow [thats the back]
