I love the "grow a pair" shorts. I always say that (referencing my ovaries) and I generally get a few strange looks, but maybe I should just write it on my shorts instead! Feminism!

I adore the antlered cat. Reminds me of the infamous jackalope!

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Accordian collar shirt-skirt two piece into knee length dress on: August 17, 2011 06:43:06 PM
So I forgot to take pictures of the "before", but since you all are craftsters, I'm sure your imaginations can get the gist of it and I can just show you the "after" (which is the best part anyways, right?)

Basically the top was a puffed long sleeve disaster. Who adds huge puffed sleeves to compete with an already awesome accordian collar?! It reminded me of something out of Big Love, complete with a high waisted ankle length skirt. I found the set at a garage sale for two dollars and fell in love with the interesting collar...so I  altered and combined the two pieces to make a dress! It's kind of 1950s June Cleaver, no?

So the construction bizzare, but I'm really pleased with how it looks. I may add some darts to the back but overall, I think I'm ready to wear this baby out to a tea party, or some other gathering of good people.

Comments and critiques welcome!

7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Reginasaurus, Folding Chairs, Bacon=vegetable (pic heavy) on: August 25, 2009 03:13:57 PM
I accidentally posted this in the general image reproduction techniques page. Oops! If a mod wants to take it down from there...go right ahead! Sorry for my mistake Sad

I'm a HUGE Regina Spektor fan and my friend had an extra ticket to her concert so OF COURSE I said yes and OF COURSE I made t-shirts for us Smiley (If you are said friend, leave now!) Both are quotes from Regina Spektor songs.

I used freezer paper, my exacto knife, fabric paint and shirts from Good Will Cheesy


With Me in it:

Folding Chair (the shirt's more yellow in real life):

With me in it:

And here's a shirt I made a while back. I stole the shirt from Diesel Sweeties after I found out about the hilarious Baco-vegetarian movement (because who can resist bacon?!)

All in all, I'm pretty happy with the results. The lettering was a lot of work, but it turned out fabulous! The images....not so much. A little bleeding but nothing too horrible not to wear the shirts! They're my largest efforts for freezer paper stenciling thus far so I'm a pretty proud crafter Smiley

Comments? Questions? Constructive Critisism?

I know this is a stupid question, but what type of pleats did you use? And like someone else asked did you use a serger or regular sewing machine?

B y the way, I love, love, love the combo Smiley
