2  Colorful necklaces + earrings: Robot Love, koalas, teddy bears, and more in Beads: Completed Projects by zlana on: July 23, 2006 07:28:24 PM
Hi all! I haven't posted much on Craftster in AGES partly due to not being as crafty in the past couple years as I'd like. But I'm getting back to it now, finally, and I hope to start posting more often. To start with, here are some projects I've done lately. I can't get over how helpful round-nose pliers are for making good loops in eyepin-chains!

3  T-shirt resized with no sewing in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by zlana on: December 17, 2004 06:12:44 PM
So I've been thinking about doing this do a while and this evening I was antsy and needed to do something with my hands. So I decided it was time to try it out. It does a cool job of embellishing and smallering a ribbed tee. The picture doesn't do the resize justice, it looks more fitted on me when I'm not holding myself all weird because I'm having my photo taken. Also, another time I need to cut the strips longer so that when I retie them it's more snug. Anyhow, here's the pic, and a description of how I did it follows.

Ok, so I started with a ribbed tee that fit me ok, but not that flatteringly. I think it may be pretty important that it was ribbed, I could be wrong. I turned it inside out and outlined in chalk where I wanted to cut. First I drew a line straight down the middle, from neckline to hem. Then I drew horizontal lines about a half-inch apart and three inches from the center line on each side. I cut just the horzontal line first. Then I pulled on each strip as hard as I could without ripping. This added a lot of length, maybe half again the length or more. Once the strips were all stretched out, I cut them through the middle, and put the shirt on (right side out). Then I tied the strips back together, closer at the bottom, and a ways in in the bust area. Tying the strips with the shirt on gave me the right idea of how tight to tie where.

Another time, I want to cut the strips longer, both for a snugger look and to show a little skin even at the snuggest ties. I'm thinking of lacing some pretty ribbon through for a corset kind of look.

I realised the pic doesn't really show this right, so here's a closeup on the frilly part.

4  my 'computer' glove :-) in Knitting: Completed Projects by zlana on: December 13, 2004 11:54:02 AM
I bought a knitting machine at the craft store yesterday and spent all morning getting the hang of it. I just finished a sort of a fingerless glove. I made it because my mouse-using hand gets cold real easy, especially when I am using the computer for long periods of time, hehe. I dropped a few stitches, and it's not the world's most even knitting; but it's a whole lot better than I could do by hand.

(sorry if the pics don't work, I'm bad at that..)

6  Coffin stencil, anyone? in Stenciling: Discussion and Questions by zlana on: October 13, 2004 07:49:07 PM
I have a coffin themed deco that I need to do, and I'm stoked about discovering how to make stencils with photos and photoshop, so I ran a Google search for a good coffin piccie. Check out the resulting stencil image (I have yet to do the deco, I won't have access to a printer til this weekend)

Go to http://www.waymouth.org/betsi/Coffin-stencil.jpg to get the image bigger; the bulletin board system seems to be making the image smaller.
