Hey this is my first post *is some what intimidated* i have been lurking for a while, and every ones stuff is So amazing. anyways this is the stuff i have been up to as of late. yes most of it is clothing but i am throwing in some other things as well. and i swear i would have posted earlier instead of lurking for months but i couldn't figure out how to have my pictures show up.... hopefully they will know..... *crosses fingers*

i made this skirt over spring brake from a pattern... i really love the way it came out
<img src="">
I'm sorry i don't have a better picture

<img src="">
 and a close up of the actual bleach part that i think came out pretty well
<img src="">

Then a while ago i found some place Matt's on sale and realised that they could be made into intresting purses... to here are two of them that i made... they are really easy and make GREAT presents for friends, relatives ya know the drill....
<img src="">

yeah so i hope all of thouse photos work.... if any one has any questions i will try my best and answer *smiles* thanks for looking

Since you're on a forum, you need to use the bbcode version of the pictures. Photobucket supplies that too; it should be pretty easy to fix. n__n

Very nice stuff, though.

I love the skirt most of all, it's soooo cute! And those trees surrounding you are beautiful, even though I'm sure you didn't make those yourself, hehe. *bad attempt at being funny* Wink

Your skirt is so sweet, and good job with the bleach, very precise, your boyfriend is lucky to have you!  And those bags are so cute - I love the ribbon handles!  Where did you find the shape for the bag? Did you use one or two placemats?  I might have to try it...  Good Job!

thanks every one. to make the bags i just used one place mat sewed up the sides, and sewed a triangle on the sewed sides so it would have a more boxy shape. I'm not quite sure if that makes any sense at all, but if you want i could easily draw up some directions *i am better visually than i am with words... the joy of being an artist Wink*

i made the stencil from a picture of Kurt i found on line. i then changed it to a black and white photo in photo shop, and then made it absolute so that it was just black and white. i then cute out all the white parts with a exacto knife.

as for the bleach i used a bleach pen by clorox... i got it at walmart and it didn't cost a whole lot... i made three shirts with it. the bleach its self from the pen was relatively thick and stayed in one place, so not a whole lot of bleeding occurred.

they were fabric place Matt's. i would try looking for thouse, they are normally decorated with embroidery and such witch is why i picked to use them.

i hope that helps every one

I love all of your stuff, but especially the Cobain shirt.  I've been tempted to try the stencilling with bleach pen bit for a while now, but I've really been too intimidated.  Yours looks amazing!!  How long did you let it set?  Did you just rinse it in cold water or did you put it through the wash?  What did you make the stencil out of? Did you use any kind of adhesive to make it stick to the shirt?  I'm sorry I'm asking so many questions, but I really, really like this and want to try it.

OK to make the stencil i just used regular printer paper, i think you could possibly use it twice but it got a little torn up from the first use, oh well. Next i taped it on the shirt where i wanted it. then i drew in the blank areas with the bleach pen. i let it set for maybe 15 30 mints. i just kinda waited for the pen "ink" or bleach to dry. then i just washed it in cold water, i let it dry and it was done. it is yet to have any holes in it * i made it in February* so i think this all works.

A bleach pen!  I've wanted to try doing something with mine other than stain removal!   Grin

Actually, my husband is a huge Nirvana fan.  I may have to give this a try!

Everything is wonderful, but that bleach job looks crazy great. I really like the red polka dot bag as well. Welcome to posting Smiley
