1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Can freezer paper be ironed as a stencil twice? on: March 06, 2012 11:59:03 AM
I'm going to be making two shirts with the same pattern, and I'm wondering if the same stencil can be used for both?

I've already cut out one, and it's pretty intricate and time consuming to cut out a second. If I can save time this way I would be so happy!

Thanks for your advice. Smiley
2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / License plate cover on: August 01, 2009 10:29:49 AM
So I really want a personalized license plate cover, but not some lame generic frame with standard font size and color. So, my question is this. How would you go about covering the text (from a car dealership, of all things) on a frame and making it say what you do want?

I know this one's asking a lot, so it's just bonus if you know. But is there a way to have the letters continue off the frame sort of like a cutout? ( http://store.cstv.com/marketplace/store/Vendor117/fullscale/8X1383C-c.jpg ) I'm afraid anything attached on top would just fall off.

Thanks for any input! (Also if this is the wrong place please let me know)
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Tote / blanket? Help, please! on: April 22, 2009 07:23:54 PM
Long story short, I've been looking ahead to the summer months (mainly Bumbershoot! Yeah!) and there are two things that I foresee needing quite often: a blanket, and a bag that still has space to hold things around the blanket. Thus the blanket bag!

All Google had to offer was blankets that folded into a bag shape (also handy) but had no actual use as a bag. So I designed one! Only I need your help as to whether you think it'll work, yada yada. Here's a little draft of what I was thinking:

(if anything's unclear or impossible to read just say so and I'll try to clarify)

Any suggestions? I know it's going to be a little bulky, but size had to be sacrificed in the bag in order to make the blanket any kind of decent. Thanks so much for helping out!

3.  Something, such as a long grammatical construction, that is intricate or complex.

C&C greatly appreciated!

thoughts?  Huh
6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / If your eyes are the windows to your soul... on: April 08, 2008 10:00:17 PM
then windows must be the eyes of schools?

I'm thinking of entering one of these two into a contest (about doors and windows, haha) but I'm just not very sure. Any comments/criticism are verrrrrrry welcome.  Grin Thanks for looking!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Shrug-type button up, woo hoo! on: March 29, 2008 07:34:57 PM
So I'm smack in the middle of my spring break, as many others seem to be, and I had predetermined I would do SOMETHING constructive during my two week break. One week in, and this is what I've found myself with:

One ill-fitting and unfinished shrug. (If you would call it that)

My camera has no self timer, so sorry for my odd stance. This little beauty came from a trench coat sort of jacket, so all I really did was cut it and sew new seams. I had hoped to make a skirt from the bottom, but my mom refuses to help me with these endeavors so that project ended in utter failure.  Lips sealed Thanks for looking, though!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Duct tape dress form experts, your assistance please. =] on: March 29, 2008 07:18:54 PM
While I'm sure this has been asked before, I couldn't really find the answer to my question through the search. Anyway, my question is this:

About how much duct tape does it take to make a dress form? I'm not a large girl, so I wouldn't think all that much, but I have a limited amount of tape so I don't want to get started and run out.
Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks.  Grin
9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Peace, love and lino! Now with more pictures. on: February 25, 2008 09:13:57 PM
One of my first finished carvings, I'm fairly proud. Especially since I only nicked myself once!
The 'peace' was already carved when I received the block, as were some of the dots, so I just ran with the idea. My side doesn't match up at all though.

Please let me know what you think! (Also please excuse the atrocious green carpet. Wasn't my choice.  Wink )

Thanks for the interest, now for some action shots, eh? =]

I've been too busy lately to get rid of the spots picking up extra ink, but I've promised myself that it WILL be done!
