11  Mike Burns Band Shirt in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by coldbrains4 on: March 01, 2008 10:30:19 PM
My friend Mike Burns (perhaps you have heard of him, he is getting famous...) has been playing around Los Angeles lately and was most recently in the Emergenza music festival, and we went to go vote and support him.

i also found some iron-on transfer paper in a drawer and decided that i needed to make this shirt for him and the festival. the problem? thew only blank shirt i could find was an x-tra large yellow child's shirt. i had to cut off the neck because it was choking me and then when i ironed the words on these big ugly stains appeared. i assume they were grease or something that i didn't notice until the iron burned it out or whatever. anyway, in the end i did not wear this shirt and it is lurking in the back of my friend's car, because we forgot to show it to Mike. oops. oh well, i  plan to make another one on a better shirt, without the ugly stains.

one of my favorite songs of his is called "where the heart is" and i believe it's about home as in 'home is where the heart is', but the line is just "i finally found where the heart is" and i automatically think he is talking about anatomy...

so yeah. this was the first time i had used iron on transfer paper. it was fun, but scary. i was so nervous that i was going to burn it or not "cook" it enough...

12  Luna Lovegood earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by coldbrains4 on: February 13, 2008 07:58:17 PM
"dirigible plum" earrings.

ok, so they look nothing like radishes, but a lot like deformed apples. i like them. i think i will wear them tomorrow for valentine's day. "i love magic" Smiley

i have terrible acne today, so i made this picture "better" by giving myself big ol' Luna eyes, and some Ravenclaw house colored decorations to cover up the horrible red splotches and dark circles around my eyes...

i sewed two pieces of felt together, stuffed, and added a green leaf. they are on some hanging earring parts from broken earrings, attached with a string. i have never made jewelry before, apart from beading on elastic and then tying it off to make bracelets, so forgive me.

13  tardis patch in Needlework: Completed Projects by coldbrains4 on: February 04, 2008 09:40:23 PM
i was entirely inspired by MopTopStumptown's Tardis onesie found here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=219927.0

though i don't have a baby to make things for, so i made myself a patch for my bag instead:

i am new tot he whole needlework thing, so it's on a t-shirt fabric scrap, and all sort of made up as i went along. the yellowish square thing was supposed to be that weathered notice on the door of the tardis, but it ended up just looking like...idk, i pooed on it or soemthing. oh well, learning is good. i want to make at least one more with a different quote on it. i am thinking hte next one should say "it's bigger on the inside". Smiley

feedback asked for and appreciated.

14  Silly little owl in Needlework: Completed Projects by coldbrains4 on: January 25, 2008 09:47:07 PM
i was bored on a rainy day and started this little project. i don't know what it is. i don't know much about needlework, i just wanted to make this little Kurt Halsey owl with thread and a needle. also, i couldn't decide which pic was less blurry, or lighter, so i put them both.

i am sorry, Kurt Halsey for using your work without your permission, i just love this little owl so much. i am not using it to sell or anything, so i hope i am not infringing on copyright. i just redrew this on a piece of fabric with a pencil and went over it in thread. sorry.

15  Rebel alliance waterproof Zune case (pic heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by coldbrains4 on: January 25, 2008 09:42:07 PM
i guess this goes in here, because it's like a purse...kinda.

anyway, i wanted to make a waterproof case for an mp3 player, and was having trouble thinking of a way to do it. then i thought maybe i could just tape a baggie around my player, and it hit me: DUCT TAPE. i don't think it's going to hurt my zune, but if you know that it will, please tell me. anyway, i made a sort of duct tape case first:

and then i decided to just glue some fleece around it to make it more attractive, and ended up adding a rebel alliance (from Star Wars) logo to the front.

because the tiny logo was hard to cut out, and i only had BIG scissors, this was as good as i could get.

with my Zune

the inside, it's "waterproof" in the sense that it has a little extra protection if rained on, it doesn't protect form actual water submersion

and again because i am so proud of myself.

the next project is to make one for the boyfriend's tiny mp3 player and put the imperial empire symbol on that.

also, i am sorry if this was someone else's idea as well, or first, i thought of it by myself and i did not mean to steal anyone's idea.

16  Group X patch in Needlework: Completed Projects by coldbrains4 on: January 21, 2008 03:36:58 PM
so the back story is that my friends and I love the "cereal bawks" video by group x, and one of them can do the whole thing REALLY well. we spent a weekend together and the whole theme of that weekend was the word "bawks." so I made my friend who can do the accent this patch:

i added more yellow after this and attached it to a felt back to make it a sturdy patch.

he seemed to like it, so that was good. I am no expert on embroidery or anything, i just sort of made it up as I went along. what do you think?

17  Dark Mark Boxers in Stenciling: Completed Projects by coldbrains4 on: December 17, 2007 08:05:06 PM
I image searched "dark mark" and got this image, i apologize if it is yours and i used it without permission, i did not create these for sale or for mass reproduction, they are just for me.

that said, i made these slytherin boxers for myself for a part of my Cedric Diggory costume. i know, i know, he wasn't Slytherin, but i thought it would be funny if he had a pair of slytherin boxers, like he was "borrowing" them from someone....

19  totoro scarf (pics do work) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by coldbrains4 on: December 13, 2007 03:31:53 PM
i got the blue-green scarf from the thrift store, and the grey fabric was from a big fleece shawl/blanket thing, the white is just white felt. the scarf was two layers so i hand sewed everything into the top layer. it's a gift for a "secret santa" gift exchange on one of the forums i frequent. the girl i got likes studio ghibli animation. is it an appropriate gift? does it need more?

20  Harry Potter converse in Shoes: Completed Projects by coldbrains4 on: December 13, 2007 02:18:26 PM
made with heavy influence from https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=70650.0, these were really old beat up red converse that i LOVED about 4 years ago, so i decided to turn them into mary-jane-ish flats:

they are tied with yarn because i couldn't find any black ribbon. I had to bleach the rubber because i had written random words on them, and i sewed up some of the holes:

the pictures on the toe are the first chapter chapter art from the first Harry Potter book and the date it was released, and the last chapter chapter art from the last Harry Potter Book and the day it was released. (i am a HUGE Harry Potter Nerd)

and an action shot:
