I finished two screen print shirts.  My first and 2nd attempt at screen printing so Im very pleased that they look so crisp.

missmoppet - they are brilliant! What method did you use? Did you get the real deal equipment? This is definitely a skill i want to learn this year, although I was thinking to go for tights and glue for now! - bad move?

Skittlebub -- no pattern for the wreath flowers. All just quick freehand things.

  • For the sweater flowers, just cut a wavy circular spiral and then roll it up. 
  • For the loopy felt flowers, fold a strip of felt in half lengthwise and glue just one edge. Cut slits in the free edge (from the fold toward the glued part) about every 1/4 inch, and the roll the strip up. 
  • For the eyelet, lace, and tulle flowers, hand-stitch and gather one edge of a strip of fabric or trim (single thickness OR folded in half lengthwise) and put a button or other embellishment in the center. 
  • I also cut a few 5-petal flower shapes and stuck things (like felt balls or other things) in the center. 
  • At least one of the flowers was a purchased craft store clearance item from my stash, rather than handmade by me. I really raided my stash for tidbits of stuff to put on my wreaths!

Hope this helps -- let me know if you need better instructions on anything.

The sticker resist painting and superhero ornaments are great-- I'd not seen those techniques before. Both look like they would be fun for the kiddos! The Jack Skellington head pillow is cool, too -- I can visualize a set with different facial expressions! The Yoshi tees look totally professional!

 I hadnt posted the photos as Id read somewhere you can only post the photos once.

There are two exceptions to that rule: swaps and craftalongs .

What I like to do is a detailed post on the appropriate board for the project, and then post here with a picture, maybe an opinion on the project, and a link to the detailed post.

I'm calling these my Matchy-Matchy slippers... not really my style (apparently), but they only match as much as variegated yarn will let them. Tongue

I used a Yudu machine.  Ive been wanting one for a long time.  And since we moved and live far from family now, all the inlaws sent us visa gift cards because they wanted to make it easy for xmas.  I managed to find a person on ebay selling a new yudu at 50% off.  So, for $99.00 usd i snagged a new yudu and it included free shipping too!  The yudu machine, it really is a simple process too.  Those shirts were my first and second attempt and i think they turned out nicely.  I never heard of using tights and glue to screen print though, it sounds interesting.  Course, the Yudu is probably easier.

I've always wondered about the Yudu machines.  I've done the tights and Mod Podge before, it will get the job done, but it takes a little practice to get it really clean.  My boyfriend totally made me pin those shirts to his "crafts to make for him" board for swaps.  Smiley

Yeah, I always wondered about them too.  But this year with the inlaws gift cards and the yudu at only $99 I thought I would try it.  It really is fun.  I kept thinking-how in the world does that thing work?  But when it arrived and I read the manual I was like "Oh!  Thats how the thing works!  It really is easy!"  ha ha.  After my dear hubby seen how crisp and professional the yudu does prints, he now wants me to screen print all the employees some work shirts now even.  They only thing I would say though-is that i realized the supplies for the yudu can be a bit pricey.  So my advice would be to wait for a sale to buy it.  I seen Joanns was having a sale all yudu supplies was 50% off.  So, thats how I bought my supplies.  The inlaws us all sent visa gift cards-so that made it nice as i was able to purchase a nice amount of supplies and the yudu machine all at 50% off.
