1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Dwight t-shirt on: October 14, 2009 10:16:06 PM
I made this a long time ago as a celebration of the writer's strike ending and my favorite show coming back, and after seeing this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=257162.0) post, I mimicked it. Being new to craftster, I posted my version as a comment and commandeered stentorian's thread a little bit. Oops.

So, reposting.

It's just your basic t-shirt, freezer paper stenciled with black acrylic paint. If I were to do this again (I probably will) I'd iron the paint after it dried... methinks that's supposed to heat set it. Impatience (and forgetfulness) got the better of me, and I ended up washing it. It faded so now it has more of a vintage look than a nice crisp look. Which works too, I guess.

I promise, it's not as skewed as it looks in the picture. Bad angle.

Comments welcome, as always!
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / sparkly denim notebook cover on: March 13, 2009 06:15:26 PM

Yay stash busters! This project was fast and easy, and I really like the way it turned out.

First, I covered an old notebook with leftover fleece (so the spiral wouldn't snack on my lovely fabric), and then hot glued the sparkly denim to the fleece. [Enter ridiculous button stash.] I took contrasting thread and tacked the buttons down, sealing the knots with a little hot glue so they wouldn't fall off.

^ Not slouchy view.

Thanks for looking!

4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / recipes that are good cold? on: August 18, 2008 03:28:18 PM
I'm going to start bringing a lunch to school more often & I need some help brainstorming some foods that are good cold.

Besides the standard turkey sandwich and PB&J's. Those get old fast.

I'm semi-proficient with cooking & can usually manage most recipes... just not the ultra confusing ones. =)

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / sacred & profane convertibles. *edit* on: August 17, 2008 09:01:04 PM
I made my first not-scarf!! yay!

in short, this is what they are:

Even though I made tons of mistakes (which bugs the crap out of me), they're still suuper comfy. And huge. And tacky.
My band friends borrow them all the time so they can just pop off the tops & shove them in a pocket to play their instrument during freezing Minnesota football games =)

here's some better pictures:

Comments & criticism welcomed!! (Are they too tacky/gigantic?? Can you really notice all my screwups?) Thanks for looking!


pattern: "sacred & profane convertibles" from book "knit wit" by amy r. singer =)

I <3 this knitting book because the projects are pretty unusual (but also a little bland...) idk
