21  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / USC Bed Sheets...suggestions on: September 30, 2007 09:44:18 PM
So my nephew turns 15 in a few days and I was thinking of stenciling some USC (University of Southern California) Bed Sheets/Pillowcases, for him...

has anyone done this before? What kind of paint would be best to use? I use folk art paint and it seems to work well with a vingegar set and a good iron, but i really want these to turn out well. If i can find a cheap bed set that includes a comforter i'd love to do that too.

I really need suggestions!
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / mixing my patterns...suggestions? on: September 30, 2007 09:00:50 PM
So I want to make cheesylove (from knitty) for my niece, who is 16, for christmas...however, i think she is more likely to wear the style of tempting (also from knitty). I know how to modify the sleeves on tempting to make them longer, but my concern is that the placement of the heart pattern on cheesylove wont look as good on tempting, what do you all think?

also tempting is a ribbed pattern, will that take away from the design of cheesylove? if so i can follow the cheesylove pattern then just make it off the shoulders...

I don't know what to do....

please help!

I was just wondering what you all think of the stencil i designed for my brothers band. The words say "Try to see life through our eyes" and it is a line from one of their songs. The band name is Get Wise, wich is why I chose the brain...anyways, what do you think?

25  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Stencil for a friend *w/pics* check it out! on: August 10, 2007 11:37:43 AM
So I decided to try my hand at stenciling and make a shirt for a friend of mine for his birthday. I used a photo of him to make the stencil.

This is the origional picture:

To make the stencil I ended up inverting the colors first, then changing it to black and white. It seemed easier that way. Anyways, I made the stencil using freezer paper, and the paint was Tulip Matte Soft, I just used a stiff paintbrush to apply. It seems to have gone well.

Finished shirt:

There is a smudge under the "I" which is paint, but all the other smudge looking stuff is acctually lint that I hadn't cleaned off the shirt after ironing. I'll clean it later. Here's a close up of the words:

And a close up of the face:

Sorry it's sideways. Anyways since this is my first stenciled FO here, I would love comments and constructive critisism on it. Do you guys think it looks like him? Do you think it turned out well? Let me know!

much love!

Okay, here's the deal. I am making my friend a shirt for his birthday using a photo of him. It's kind of a long story, but the problem is the mouth. He's making a funny face, and I can do EVERYTHING except the mouth.

here is the origional photo:

And here is the stencil I came up with:

I have the whole thing traced out and ready to go, except the mouth. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
27  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first lace project...*with pics* on: August 05, 2007 06:30:09 PM
So I finally finished my first lace project and here are the pictures.

Here is a close up of the jacket in progress (I made the stitch markers)

This is me knitting the jacket at the salon, while drinking a glass of wine and watching my Aunt get her hair done. (I'm multi-tasking)

This is my Aunt wearing her lovely finished jacket at the wedding reception.

And here is my lovely Aunt again, wearing the jacket for the toast's. I was thrilled that none of the red wine ended up on the white jacket.  (btw, her husband is behind her to the left in the red shirt.)

I would love to know what you all think of the jacket! I've never done lace before (as I said at the top) but i'm pretty satisfied with the outcome. BTW if anyone is curious, my mom sewed the wedding dress my Aunt is wearing, and the shirt my Uncle wore as well. Thanks again for looking, and much crafty love! Grin

28  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / *EDIT* Colorfull Sheep ~Image HEAVY~ *new pics added* on: August 01, 2007 11:53:14 AM
HI everyone, i just finished a Poly project. These are my saturday stitch markers (cause I was bored and made them on a saturday).

 I think they are cute, and I have recently made them in bright colors. I really hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed making them. These guys are so much fun, and here they are.

I've decided to try to give them clever names so I would really love feedback on whether or not you think the names are a good match for the sheep. The name is based on color (or my mood I suppose) anyways Comments are wanted!

Ewe Punkin:

Lavender Ewe, Dilly, Dilly (I like Burl Ives!):

Ewe So Hot (they were supposed to be hot pink...):

Lucky Ewe:

I only have only made the verigated sheep in one color combination at the moment but they turned out really great, and I am eager to show them off. After all everyone knows that verigated yarn comes from verigated sheep! WIth Picture hosting back up I can finally post pictures of the verigated guys here! These guys are what my ETSY store is named after!

Love Ewe:
before the faces are put on, so you can see the detail in the work...

and the finished project...

I'm glad I got such good close up's of their faces, because the expressions they end up with are always different. I like that, since it gives them personality. Anyways, so here is the full collection so far...

Please leave me feed back and let me know what you think of the look, the names, etc. It would be increadibly helpful!

happy crafting
