I fixed it with the lightening bolts. Wink I think it looks more "finished" now also. I like it when I have good mistakes. Cheesy

12  Iron-on + stenciled t-shirt ~FIXED the boo-boo!!~ in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by RockstarMom on: May 21, 2008 10:38:09 AM
Here's t shirt #2 for Hubster for his Birthday. We're huge Black 47 fans (Irish punk rock band) so I decided to make him a shirt from on of their album covers.

I accidentally forgot to reverse the image so I had to cut out the text. I refused to waste the transfer I made so I used the reverse image and then stenciled w/ freezer paper the text below it ( I removed the pic of the cannon in the text though). I accidentally got a smudge of paint, so I need to think of something to put around the fist. Skinny lightening bolts?

Here's the shirt w/ the smudge. Sad Other than the smudge i think it looks pretty good.

Here's the original image.

What do you think? Any suggestions on covering up the smudge? I think it needs something......  Huh not sure what though.

13  Since I have to steal his car ( that I JUST bought him) this fall in Stenciling: Completed Projects by RockstarMom on: May 21, 2008 07:23:50 AM
I made him a copy of it..... on a shirt for his Birthday! Grin

What do you think? It's not as perfect as I'd like, but I think he'll like it.

Here's one of the pics I took of his car:

Here's the finished shirt:

Long story short- Hubby came home from Deployment last month and needed a car because I need the family car and he can't seem to find a carpool out here. So we bought him this little 87 Nissan 300zx for a great price! Welllllllllll........ my daughter finally got into the HeadStart program out here, little guy is going to daycare and I am going back to college this fall.... My husband takes my oldest to his Charter school in the morning because it's on his way to work and my daughter's going to the same school.
His car is a 2-seater. Um yeah. So he has to take my SUV and I have to take his lil b!t@h car to school.  Cheesy

I received from RIRA! I knew it!
I opened it because the Birthday Boy was still at school- no thunder stealing involved in the opening of this package! Wink

So here's the loot! (sorry for the not so wonderful pics, dh was taking them and he sucks at it.... even though he used my DSLR Roll Eyes )

All wrapped up in pretty, bright fabrics and the kids helping Mommy! The only fabric you can't see is the Puppy&Kitty fabric because my kids were fighting over it and I had to take it away as it had a pin in it holding the note to it.

Hogwarts thumbtacks for my cork board in my kitchen, though I may move this to my craft room.

Turtle Painting. I love turtles and green and Rira made me this for my kitchen. Cheesy

Coffee Painting. Will go excellent in my craft room that I have decided should be a  funky coffee theme now that I have 2 coffee paintings from swaps!

And my FAV! Slytherin & Quidditch slippers! I love HP and these are SO COMFY!!!

She put little clues into my package in note cards, but I already knew it was her! LOL And we get to swap for the IYP too!!

15  Camo Bug Cargos {creepy crawlies} in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by RockstarMom on: May 09, 2008 02:41:34 PM

I did some 'tweaking' of the pattern ( I made him shorts earlier https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=245054.0 and they weren't the best) and positioned the pockets lower so they wouldn't be cut off completely. Which meant lowering them almost an inch lower than the pattern showed where the pockets could go and it turned out PERFECT!
I also decided to not do the velcro on the cargo pocket and made it much smaller than the pattern had it. It's still functional, but not what the directions/pattern said to do. Yes, I know. I am a rebel!
I also lined the pockets. It made my AR/OCD go off the charts by having raw edges inside the pockets! LOL

So what do you think?

As modeled by my ironing board..... (no action shots as of yet)

16  Dinosaur Cargo Shorts {rawr!} in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by RockstarMom on: May 09, 2008 11:40:35 AM
Making these shorts was almost the end of me! The directions weren't the best and the pattern was only so-so. My son normally wears a size 2 (in store bought clothes), but in the pattern he was a size 1/2 (that's a half, not a 1 or 2). Not a problem, right?

I had issues all around with these. Next pair I am going to make them differently. s@#$ the directions! 1/2 of them were awful.

So despite spending three hours trying to figure out and put together a pair of cargo shorts I DID IT! They are super cute (though a bit long) and the little guy likes them!

On with the pictures!

I made one while watching a movie tonight!! SUCH an easy and quick project! This one is for the Hubster. I am headed out to get more yarn to make me one tomorrow! His matches our bathroom perfectly. Hubster has not seen it yet-he fell asleep during the movie. Roll Eyes

Thanks for the pattern! I LOVE IT!

18  Khaki and Turquoise Dresses in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by RockstarMom on: May 04, 2008 01:19:47 AM
I made these early last week before I started on my flowered dress. I started on them a week before that, but then decided to line the skirts of the dresses. Granted my dd and my friend's dd will never wear them together (we live 3000 miles apart Cry), but I had enough to make her a dress also (I have to sew the bloomers for it tomorrow) for her Birthday this month. I started using a pattern, but messed up my cuts so I had to alter it slightly by making the back more open than the pattern called for (It was supposed to be open on the sides). It'll look just as cute with a little pair of turquoise bloomers underneath I think. It was supposed to be McCall's #2213, but it didn't turn out like any of the views. I like it anyways.  Grin I may make her a little hat to match also.

I am going to add a sash to the middle of my dd's dress (the larger dress) tomorrow to make it look more finished. Wink Also I still have to put a button or and eye&hook at the top above the zipper. Somehow all my eye& hooks are missing.  Huh
I used the same pattern as her 50-cent dress posted here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=242438.0 but used the size 3 skirt and a different size 2 top since she has gotten taller, but not any wider since last year.

Without further ado....
Front of both:

Back of Both: (a little wrinkled because someone sat on them!)

Front of my DD's dress: (sans sash)

Back of the dress I made for my friend's baby:

19  White Spring Dress: Newlook 6699 Sewing Pattern in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by RockstarMom on: May 01, 2008 08:55:37 PM
My very 1st article of clothing for ME since 7th Grade HomeEc! Well that one turned-ta-crap in 7th grade and I have never completed another article of clothing for ME until today.....

I give you my dress.......... TADAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

I love this print so much I bought enough to make me and my lil girl the same dress to wear for Sunday. I only have to find my eye&hooks to finish the back and then it's completely DONE. I am so proud of myself. Grin It fits the girls and my belly chub(that I wish I didn't have- but I'm working on that). I love it so much. It's New Look # 6699 and the fabric is something I got from the Juvenile prints at Joann's!  Cheesy Looks grown-up and yet still little girly enough for me!

20  So now she likes dresses-50 cent dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by RockstarMom on: April 25, 2008 07:02:00 PM
My 3.5 yr old is such a Royal P.I.T.A. Up until last week she HATED dogs and dresses.... now she loves both. Roll Eyes So she decided to wear the dress I made her for her Daddy's Homecoming last year.... with cowboy boots.... I LOVE IT!

I think it's a Sew Easy pattern Huh Maybe, I can get the pattern # later, it's around here somewhere. Smiley There was a red satin sash around the middle, but she took it off when she went potty earlier. I also only paid 50 cents for a YARD of that fabric!! Shocked

Best dress EV-AAAAAH! Grin
(sorry, best pic I had gotten where she wasn't making a super-goofy face! LOL)
