11  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / TONS of stuff on: May 11, 2008 04:40:46 PM
Its my friend's birthday--today actually, but I saw her yesterday. I made her stuff, the pictures are really bad. I finished them last minute like two minutes before she came to go see the Honda Civic concert. It was absolutely great.


They say Nine Minutes randomly in the background.

A belt that I drew on, the pics go in order from the buckle:

and the best:
a box of all of her favorite bands and people

outside sides:


Everything in it:

and I covered it up with the leftover pictures:

for some reason, the rest of belt won't show up so here:
I drew a radio and checkers and music notes in between the first and second pic of belt, but I failed in taking a picture of it

My Favorite Highway shirt for my friend:

I messed up a lot. I should never watch blade runner while making stuff, I always mess up every time I watch that movie.
13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recon of Dad's old shirt, take 2. on: April 27, 2008 07:16:06 AM
I was watching the office and then a flash of a tube top I saw somewhere came to mind.
 So, I tried making it with my dad's old button-down:

It didn't come out how I wanted, it was a little tight and the inside of the top is a disaster. I didn't serge anything, bad idea. The fabric sucked. I wore the whole day and it was surprisingly okay.

I made my dad's old shirt into my size and more feminine. Sorry, I don't have a before picture.

17  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Dinocorn Shirt on: April 12, 2008 09:38:28 AM
My friend and I made this last night:




The pictures arn't that great, it was getting really late and I was getting restless. Sorry for the guitar in the pic, there was too many stuff on my floor to put it down.

We wanted to make it look worn and old--not really vintage though. The dinocorn is on the side of the shirt and says rawr. The nine minutes is just what we call our clothes that we sell.
18  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Band Pins--Now with tutorial on: April 04, 2008 04:01:26 AM
Every year my brother goes to this robot thing and brings home loads of hideous pins.

Exhibit A:

So I made band pins, ones that I can actually keep this time!
Jack's Mannequin:


and Phantom Planet. Still mad Jason's not the drummer, but its okay because Coconut Records is awesome.

In total:

The pics are from the bands website


the link on my original post doesn't work so I just copied and pasted it here.

er--band buttons tutorial--whatever you want to call them.

Okay, this is just to reconstruct a button, and it doesn't always come out professional looking and read the whole thing before you try it, because I absolutely, ABSOLUTELY suck at giving directions, teaching, even tutorials, and I'm listening to Anarbor, working title, the fall of troy and the used, so I might of typed up the lyrics by accident and I'm too lazy to read and edit.

1. Use a knife (xacto, anything sharp) to split apart the bottom of the button from the top.

and then you'll have these two, the bottom and top

2. Then use a hobby knife (toothpick, pencil, your nails...) to carefully remove the plastic cover and paper of the top.

and then you get these four.
If the plastic has something printed/drawn on it, that you don't want, throw it away.
If you don't have a plastic cover at all, don't worry, there are other ways to make a cover.

3. Take out what you want to be on the button (printed picture, fabric) If you want to make it easier on yourself, you can laminate the picture you want on your button, that doubles as a cover.

I'm using The Hint's new cd cover. You should check out their new album, its actually really good.

4. Put the picture on the top of the top side of the button, and make a crease of where the picture will be on the button. Make sure you crease part of the picture that you want to be on the button. (Yeah I wasn't really sure how to explain this)

and you get something like this.

5. Cut at least an inch away from the crease. You don't have to do this now. You can do it after attached it to the top of the button and then cut of the extra.

6. Put the picture on the top of the button, you can attach it by gluing if you like, but I didn't because it isn't as flat on top. Then using a toothpick(fingernails, etc.) push the paper into the sides. I used tape to leave it in place. (Ha, being a lefty, everything smudges as a write and I have ink on my pinky, like in the pic)

7. This is the hard part. Repeat 6 over with the plastic cover. I used a lot of tape for this.
Like I said in step 2, there are alternatives for a cover. You can use a sandwich bag or transparent packaging tape, plastic bag or mod podge, etc.

It comes out like this(if you used tape. Sorry, the pic is blurry because of the reflection of the tape)

8. Then take out the bottom of the button. Pop it back in with the back of the bottom facing the back of the top. Make sure the pin is facing you and that the pin is on the right angle with your picture.

If doesn't fit, then take out a weight or something and pound the sides of the bottom of the button, until it does fit. Check if it fits after each time you make a dent to the sides because you don't want the back to be so small that its loose and it falls out. However, if it is too loose you can just glue or tape it.

This is how it will be when you put them together.

Ask questions if you don't understand something.
19  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / I really can't think of a title...its just an untitled bag on: March 23, 2008 03:20:31 PM
I finally finished all my work, and that being said, I needed to make something because its been awhile (because all of the work) I wanted a new bag to hold a book, zune, keys and gummy worms. (this is shocking because I usually make or have big bags to hold everything) I didn't feel like buying one or buy fabric.

So using this old shirt, modeled by my [un]glamorous chair (so it can be stretched):

I made this

Again, modeled by my furniture.

The inside

using the left over from my Barbie doll clothes(if you saw them)

braided handle

I just kind of winged it, no measurements. I was truly and utterly lazy with this bag..or would be called a tote?

Heres a picture of how it looks with everything in it...this time I'm modeling it against my ghastly, but comfortable pajama.
20  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / I haven't hated Barbies as much as I ever did after this on: February 26, 2008 06:50:12 PM
I had a project that I thought was due on Friday and I didn't start on it, but it was moved up [or would it be down] to tomorrow and I didn't start. It was on Ancient Greece Clothing and I only had 2 hours to do it, considering I had 2 huge exams to study for tomorrow. So with extreme stress, aspirin, and a little ambitious expectations, I made this:

I had to make up a pattern for them, because I couldn't find all my Barbie's clothes somewhere up in my parent's attic.

Thats the female version, the dress is called the ionic peplos and I had to have pins shown because they fastened clothing with pins.

the back^

This is the male version, obviously. Its your basic tunic, but Greek style. The shoes were made from extra corkboard I had.The background is my posterboard I had to create with it.
