1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Polo with all-over doodles...by hand. Please look! :) on: April 10, 2007 08:23:32 AM
I have had the LAMEST looking plain pink polo for awhile now, so I decided to spruce it up by drawing various designs all over it w/ fabric markers.  It took me two months to finally finish (I made it back in the winter) but it was worth it.  The design represents how music can provoke ideas, art, and creativity.  

I tried washing this polo in the washing machine once...BIG mistake.  Even though I heat-set the fabric markers, certain colors bled.  Luckily it wasn't too bad.  I noticed the colors that blobbed were ones that had been drying out - therefore they hadn't been saturated into the fabric and ran out.  I added a few new doodles to cover up the blobs, but I don't have pictures for those.  The inspiration for the design came from an ad for the Sansa MP3 player.

The photos aren't showing up on my computer, so I'm including a link to another site where they're posted.  I made a "highschoolmusical" (Which I absolutely HATE, by the way) fake account just for posting pics and random stuff.  Anyway.  Hope you can see the photos on this site instead. (Also, there are some pics of bermuda shorts I made from old jeans and sewed a heart onto.  And one of me and Lemony Snicket on Halloween.)

Fun fun fun! Please leave your input, I'd love to hear what you think =)  The polo is getting small on me now since it was an old polo.  What will I do with it once I grow out of it?  I'm really small for my age and wear a size 8 girls, this is like a size 6, and I don't know any six-year-olds who share my indie sense of style. *laughs*

2  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Vans-Knockoffs I Colored... on: December 18, 2006 02:48:01 PM
These are nothing much, I just colored these once black-and-white slip-ons with fabric marker.  I can't believe I actually thought I was the awesomest person in the world when I made these last year, lol.  I think they're pretty boring now, personally, but w/e.



Yesh yesh I know incredibly boring no?  Hey, I was 11 when I made these, so cut me some slack...and gosh, please don't not take me seriously just because you think I'm a  little kid or whatever...I regard myself as just as creative as any of you =)  Yet I still think these sneakers suck...*sighs*  Go check out my tee shirts instead XD
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / DIY Panic! at the Disco tee, handwritten letters! Please Check It Out! on: December 18, 2006 02:38:45 PM
I love Panic! at the Disco, but...

a) am not willing to blow $20 on a band tee I don't particularly like
b) am petite, so it would barely fit me anyways...

Therefore, I took matters into my own hands, bought this plain teal tee from Forever21 (2 for $10, if you know a better deal, please tell me! ), and created my very own Panic! tee...


Up close view:


This took me two days to make, I made it the first week after school started...so back in September, say?  By the way, I'm 12...if you don't want to take me seriously, it's your loss, cause I think I'm a serious crafter!  Wink


1.  Buy Crayola Fabric Markers (or other fabric markers.  Sharpies are fine too.) about maybe $5, from a craft store like JoAnne's.
2.  Go to mall, head over to Forever21, buy yourself one or two plain tees.  $6.80 each or $10 for two.
3.  At home - spread your tee flat out on desk or floor, wedge cardboard inside where you plan to write/draw/etc.
4.  Turn on your computer, Google the font Extra Ornamental, download.  OR - just find an image of Panic! at the Disco in the font they used on their CD cover.
5.  Type, say in Microsoft Word, "Panic! at the Disco" using the font.
6.  Print.
7.  Using the printed sheet as a guide, hand-draw your letters onto the teeshirt carefully.

Obviously, you can vary this project as much as you'd like - use different fonts, write different things, heck, skip writing and draw!  It's a very simple project but it takes a long time to write neatly - especially this retardedly curly font, wow...I did it on the floor and boy was my back aching.

Craft on!  Please comment and let me know what you think.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Good Design Ideas For T-Shirts? =) on: December 18, 2006 02:28:24 PM
Any good design ideas for tees?

It has to be drawable.  Any suggestions you have will be greatly appreciated!  I'll take anything - clever phrases, cool pictures, etc.  Right now I'm aiming to do a tee with a deer playing accordion, but if I like your idea I'll probably turn it into a shirt too! XD
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How Do You Screen Something Onto A T-Shirt? on: December 18, 2006 02:25:03 PM
Hey, I was wondering, how would you, for instance, buy a black t-shirt and put a red design on it?  Like how tee-shirt companies like Junk Food put designs or words lighter than the tee on...how is that possible?  You have to screen it on, right?  Wondering how exactly to do it...thanks if you know and don't judge me as a complete iddeeot. lol. =)
