1  Stenciling = loads of fun! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by shesme on: August 29, 2008 11:33:19 AM
After hearing about stenciling quite awhile ago, I finally broke down and bought some supplies.(like I need another crafty interest Grin) Just wish I could find my exacto knife - box cutters are a pain in the butt. This is my first attempt and thought I'd try an easy one first. Made this for my husband and we are both loving it! Only problem is that I think everything in the house is going to end up being stenciled......

Since I tend to ramble - I'll try to make this short and sweet.

Last year we adopted the best dog ever from The Michigan Humane Society - his name was originally Spike but that didn't fit, so we renamed him Milton. Tomorrow is my daughter's 13th birthday. She has a great love for animals and has even been a vegetarian for over a year now.  In her party invites she asked guests to bring a donation for the MHS instead of bringing her gifts - Needless to say, our families were more than generous and I now have a car load of animal supplies that we will be taking to the Center tomorrow. Since Milton played a great role in my daughter's decision to ask for the donations - I figured he should also have something special for tomorrow. Now I don't normally put dog clothes on him - but I don't consider this to be clothes. Just some felt I finished off with bias tape, embroidered his name and MHS Alumnus, added some elastic under his belly and ties in the front. He loves it - I think he feels special wearing it.

I love my girl and I'm very proud of her - Happy Birthday Allisin!

3  Darth Vader sorta recon library bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by shesme on: August 06, 2008 11:05:46 AM
OK -
I have a seven year old son who is obsessed with Star Wars (I think he thinks he is A Jedi).
We go to the public library quite a bit and he wanted a bag to tote his books around. I found this bag at a garage sale for $1 - only it had an advertisement for a hotel on the side. Not very appealing to a 7 year old. The green strip at the top was already part of the bag.  Good thing I save every scrap of material I've purchased. I found some green fabric that I had made a dress out of for my daughter about 7 years ago - it matched perfectly. I tried using  fabric crayons to do the stencil but it didn't come out dark enough so I just colored over it with a Laundry Sharpie. On the inside of the bag I added a pocket with a velcro closure for his library card. It's far from perfect - especially the  XX stitching - but he loves it!

my only concern it that it might look a lil too girly?
