1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Lou Reed bleach stencil on: January 21, 2007 11:51:15 AM
I made this Lou Reed shirt as a birthday gift for my sister. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, but it wasn't the easiest stencil to work with. I had to go back and do a lot of areas without the stencil, like the eyes, mouth, and nose. It was also my first attempt at shading with bleach (I used a clorox bleach pen...pretty easy to work with).

I hope you all like it! And in case anyone wants the stencil, I forgot to save it  Sad but it's just the already stencil-like image from Transformer without the guitar and microphone...pretty easy to fix in paint.

Thanks for looking!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / I cut my shirts in half on: January 21, 2007 11:28:21 AM
These were the easiest reconstructions!  I took two unflattering shirts, either too short or wide, cut them in half and added a tighter midsection.  I don't have the before pictures, but trust me, they're much better this way!

Thanks for looking!

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Fingerless Gloves on: October 19, 2006 04:26:15 PM
I can't remember exactly how I found this pattern, but here's the link: http://members.aol.com/cillcrochets/fingerless.html

I love them except that they don't fit right in a few spots, I don't know if it was my guage (or lack of  Smiley) or a size thing. I added buttons instead of a side seam to try and correct it though.

Anyway, I'm so happy to have finally finished them after working on and off for quite some time, so.......here they are:

They were pretty easy to make and I think the pattern could be adjust as you go by just holding the piece up to your hand.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Diane Von Furstenberg and Simplicity dresses on: September 18, 2005 04:28:34 PM
I was going to make a DVF dress I saw in vogue or glamour or something this summer, but it became my mom's project as I didn't have time to figure it out.  She did a great job...I used it on vacation over my bathing suit.  It was made from Ikea curtains from the as-is section (It is a gauzy material)

This dress is from a simplicity pattern and made from a duvet cover from the Ikea as-is bin (I stock up  Smiley)  My mom helped me with the zipper as I haven't got that down yet, and we made the back criss-cross for a better fit.  Please excuse the wrinkles.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Vogue hat collection on: August 16, 2005 05:39:43 PM
Vogue 7600 - the brim turned out huge. Good hat for sitting at the beach.

Vogue 8008 - the base is really quick and easy, the flower was hard to put together because it was so thick.

Vogue 7619
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Simplicity 4668 purses (large pic's) on: August 16, 2005 04:27:51 PM
This purse sews up quick and easy; however, it's really big, but not too big to carry.

My mom had the brilliant idea to shrink the pattern on a copier.  It turned out like a more normal sized purse.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Tank from robotsrock's smock top tutorial on: August 16, 2005 03:46:04 PM
Thanks to robotsrock for the great tutorial.  It was very clear and easy to understand.  I had to make the main part of the shirt a little smaller.  I used a pillowcase from the as-is bin at Ikea which was about $1.
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet (cowboy) Hat & Beanie on: August 16, 2005 02:14:19 PM
I made this hat trying to copy a straw hat that I had.  Although, I couldn't figure out how to eliminate the gaps every time I started a new row.

When I pin up the sides I have a little cowboy hat. (credit my sister for that idea  Smiley)

I don't remember what size crochet hook I used for this beanie, but it was one of the large plastic ones.

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My first shirt and another on: August 11, 2005 12:18:44 PM
This is the first shirt I've ever made.  It's from simplicity 5194 and wasn't too difficult.  I would probably recommend lengthening the shirt (although I don't know how) because it shows my belly button which seams wierd for this style shirt.

This halter was very easy to make.  It was Simplicity 5507.

Thanks for looking Smiley
10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Young Frankenstein & Robert Smith on: August 10, 2005 05:31:37 PM
My sister and I stenciled this shirt for our dad for father's day.  We used a clorox bleach pen and an image printed from our computer, hence the fuzzy lines.

I also stenciled this Robert Smith shirt in the same manner.
