1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / for those of us a little too obsessed with celebrity crushes.. on: December 17, 2007 02:47:45 PM
so i made these for my two friends for Christmas, i like them and i don't like them, they're kinda creepy but cute. This was my first time ever making plushies, and i really want to try to make more, but different from these.

Anyway, felt, buttons, polyfil, and this awesome paper i found at JoAnns where you print on it then when you peel off the back its fabric to sew with. Here they are laying down, but they can stand up too.

Danny Jones, a member of McFly, who is from Britain

Michael Buble, of Canada. His face looks distorted in the first one but it isn't, its jsut how it was lying on my bed. sorry for the poor image quality too.

what do you think? comments/criticisms?  Smiley i'll definitely be making plush toys again, but very differently.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / lots of polka dotsedit, pics of it on =) on: November 09, 2007 01:57:30 PM
i have a bunch of white shirts, because they're cheap & you can do so much with them, so i decided to do something different with this one, with black&white polka dot fabric and red&white polka dot fabric:

dinosaur applique with a heart:

and then red-polka dot panels down the sides:

(i cut it jagged like that on purpose, i like how it looks)
and all together:

its not laying strait, so it looks wrinkled, but i can try to get a picutre of it on.
what do you guys think?
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / i don't really show school spirit... on: October 28, 2007 04:35:42 PM
...so i reconstructed a sweatshirt from my high school!
i forgot before pictures! sorry  Sad i was just excited to start. it used to be really big, but i loved the color (it was actually dyed from when it was my brothers), and it had "Gateway Gators" embroidered on the left chest side, which i didn't like, so i did this:

(excuse the fact that its a mirror pic)

close of up the fabric:

i cut of the sleeves, took them and the body of the sweatshirt in, then sewed the diagonal stripe over the symbol with a tight zigzag. its so comfy and i really like it =)
its kind of looks like its not on straight but it actually is, its just the way i'm standing.
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / yo-yos! on: October 16, 2007 04:56:11 PM

(sorry if these are in the wrong section, i wasn' sure)
  Smiley yo-yos are awesome to make, and i wanted to be doing something instead of just sitting and watching tv (because i really wanted to relax, but i hate not being productive)
so i made these, & i'll be making many more because i have so many scraps of fabric. i'll probably make colars and sew then on or maybe just onto shirts anywhere; any other suggestions for these?

(Also, in my creative sewnig class we're making little pumpkins out of a stack of different colored orange fabric yo-yos, supe cute for holloween, i'll post it when i finish & get it back from being graded. also, for christmas you can make little trees by stacking yo-yos that get smaller and smaller.)

5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / bomber stencil! on: September 16, 2007 06:24:03 PM
This is only my second stencil ever, and I already am in love with freezer paper, i will definitely stencil more soon, once i have the time. Also, I don't really like what I did the first time i stenciled, but I wanted to post this one now because I'm proud of it  Grin

For the bomb that says "NO", I got that from a picture of street art, sorry i don't have the link for it. My stepdad helped with drawing the bomber plane, & that was tedious to cut out. It bled a little bit around the nose of the plane, but that part ends up like in my armpit anyway so you can't notice when its on (I'll try and add a picture of me wearing it soon if I can).

what do you think?
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / textile medium..? on: September 03, 2007 04:28:49 PM
what exactly is that? is it necessary for stenciling?
i've done a few stencils but i'm pretty new to it (i'll post pictures soon in the completed projects board) but i've just been using acrylic paint. it says that it works on fabric right on the bottle, so thats all i use and then i heat set it, but i've been seeing a lot of things on here where acrylic and a medium is mixed. sorry if this is a lot but can anyone just clear that up for me?
7  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / this is (obviously) redundant; i'm new! on: September 03, 2007 01:52:09 PM
Hello everyone!
I found this site a while ago, so i've been lurking, but recently joined. I love everything on here, and started on a few of my own things, and hopefully being involved instead of just looking will help motivate me more. So just saying hello to everyone, and if anyone cares to know, i'm from south jersey.
