1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Chaplin and Wild Thing Shirts on: February 07, 2005 02:10:48 PM
I finally found some shirts from Hobby Lobby that were affordable(aka cheap!) and that weren't boxy and unfitting. And they held up in the wash quite well. So I made a Charlie Chaplin stencil and a Wild Thing stencil from my favorite childhood book, Where the Wild Things Are.  So here they are:

Here's a close-up the Chaplin one:

And a far-away shot:

And the Wild Thing:

Slightly futher away-shot:

(the paint on the Wild Thing shirt is a brigher green than showed up. It goes really great with the purple of the shirt.

They were my first stencils that turned out relatively well and looked good while being worn. I'm so happy becuase I've wanted a Chaplin shirt forever.  Smiley
I'd love some feedback.
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Stencil Patches on: January 31, 2005 02:33:18 PM
I recently made all these stencils but haven't had time to go look for cheap shirts to put them on. So I just put them on patches of cloth so now I have handy-dandy patches to put on clothes and such.

This is Twiggy:

And another Twiggy:

And a robot, who I have named Mr. Roboto:

Sorry for the fuzzy pictures. Camera is majorly challenged. So there they are.  Smiley
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Sassy Wrist Bands w/ Four Pics on: January 25, 2005 02:32:14 PM
I recently made some wrist bands out of fabric, paper, contact paper, etc. They were easy and really actually kinda fun to put together. And here some of them are(sorry, my camera is a piece of...yeah, you know)

The first one(eiffel tower) is a cheap bookmark I had and then cut to fit the band. The next one is just some doodle-things I drew. The third one is really hard to see(thank you craptastic camera), but it is old-looking paper that has three creepy liitle men/dwarf things.

And the Eiffel Tower band in action!

And the doodle band in action! Sassy!

Oh and here's one made of this old mushroom fabric I had laying around:

If anyone has any question on how to make them, I'm here. They were too easy to make. And they are really comfortable.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Blue-Jean Help Needed on: January 21, 2005 07:22:46 PM
I want to make a pair of jeans flaired. Yes. I have searched on the site, but I've only found pictures, and not instructions on how to actually do it.  Sad  And I can't really figure out a good, clean-looking way to do it from the pics. So if anyone has done thiis/has tips/instructions, sharing them would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Turtleneck Help Needed on: January 19, 2005 01:40:52 PM
Has anyone ever removed a turtleneck from a sweater, or does anyone have any tips/ideas/ for doing it in a slighty easy, quick way so the sweater still looks fairly normal. The problem is someone gave me this kick-ass sweater, but I absolutely hate turtenecks and this takes away from the kick-ass-ness of the sweater. I don't know of this is even possible Embarrassed. I really hope so, so if you have any advice it is more that welcome and needed.
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Gene Harlow Shirt on: January 15, 2005 06:37:23 PM
I made the shirt from a pic that I found on the internet. It turned into a perfect stencil after messing around with it in Microsoft Word. Here's the link to the pic:
Sorry for the sad, horrible quality of the pic; my camera is a bit challenged. The shirt is green and the image is black. The actual image is on the left sleeve.
I was really happy with how it turned though.  Smiley (and again sorry for the bad pic...)
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Scrap Tie Bracelets on: January 09, 2005 03:07:22 PM
I made this neck-tie hat: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=17001.0 (which is awesome and relatively quick and easy to make). But when I was done, I had the ends of all these really awesome, slightly tacky ties. So I came up with a really easy, extremely fast little project: a tie bracelet/cuff thingy. Unfortunately I have no means of getting a picture of one up(no money=no digital camera Sad) But I can give instructions:
1. Find the skinniest part of a neck-tie and measure around your wrist so it is a sorta  loose fit.
2. Cut the tie so you have enough to go around your wrist.
3. Sew the ends of piece together.
4. And slip on! (The tie material is kinda stretchy so it slips on and manages to fit at the same time)

I hope you like because it has provided my with something to do and I end up making something I can acually use! Ask if you have question about the instructions.
