1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My hands aren't cold anymore. (Furry Fingerless Gloves) on: November 06, 2005 03:36:12 PM
I live in California, to me anything below 60 degrees is cold. I love wearing gloves to keep my hands warm at school, but it's hard to write or do anything else while wearing gloves. I decided I needed some fingerless gloves. The other day I found over a yard of blue faux fur at the thrift store for $3, perfect.


I can still put my hands in my pockets, one of my hobbies.

Proof that there are two of them.

My sister laughed but then admitted that she wants a pair. I'll debut them at school tomorrow and see what type of reaction they receive. I doubt people will be very surprised as the gloves match my hair, and my shoes.

Each glove is essentially just a rectangle of fabric twice the width of the widest part of my hand, folded in half and sewn up leaving a slit for the thumb, then hemmed at the top and bottom. I didn't make them too form-fitted because the fabric isn't stretchy so they would end up not fitting over my hand. They shed a bit as I didn't finish off the edges very well, but that just adds to the charm. I'd like to make a pair lined in this green satin that I have, but in my experience satin and fur are some of the most difficult fabrics to work with.

Auf wiedersehen!

3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Misc. T-Shirts (tree, Alex Kapranos, Solemite) on: December 29, 2004 03:04:53 AM
I have finally gotten around to posting these. I use wax paper and fabric paint for my stencils. All of these are designed by me, if for any reason you'd like them I can post/send you the jpg.

This one says baum, it's German for tree. My Germ 2 teacher liked it, a lot.

My friend is completely in love with Alex Kapranos, of Franz Ferdinand fame, so I made her a shirt for her birthday. The colors are off though, it's really periwinkle with white paint.

And finally, one of the first stencils I ever did. This one was done the day of the last show ever played by Solemite, so it's not real detailed. They were a really great band from a nearby city, Oakland. The "S" is their logo, kind of, and those are some of their lyrics that fit the situation perfectly. My sister made one along the same lines, different words and stuff though, the band loved them both.

Back, just the band name, it was centered between the shoulders.
