1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Because You Are What You Eat/So Lovingly Served on Porcelain on: October 23, 2005 11:18:26 PM
My friend had his sixteenth birthday on the tenth, I was broke so I ripped of this Rammstein shirt;

heh, the songs about eating people

the flecks on the shirt is paper. My paper has been STICKING to my shirt when I'm stenciling and I have to scrape it off with an exacto, and exacting and sometimes hazerdous way to occupy time (it's very time consuming)

But I nicked a stack of cardstock from my school so I'm in good shape.

Yeah I made him this one too...I really hate it


Think I got enough paint on there?

Also; does anyone know how to change your account's name without deleting and making a new one?

Thanks for looking!

I just realized that would make people think politics-sorry it was just the Horrorpop's song that's stuck in my head

So completely random photo dump-rejoice!

My new favorite skirt, I've made about three skirts using this pattern I've drafted, but this is my personal favorite.

and it was also my first button hole

Yeah, and I knit that scarf

This is a bag I made in about an hour that I"m currently using as my book bag. God I love it.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Trench Coat Pattern Pictures in comments on: July 12, 2005 05:41:00 PM
Idly flipping through this month's InStyle I stumbled across the most gorgeous coat I have ever seen, I don't have a picture but if you have the magazine, or see it, it's page 167.


can anyone reccoment a good trench coat pattern? I want to make a tailored military style trench coat

thank you!

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / I only listen to the sad, sad songs on: June 07, 2005 10:05:12 PM

I'm on a little Garbage jag right now and so to celebrate my rekindled obsession I stenciled a t-shirt





It says "I'm only happy when it rains." It bunched a little...my back is doing strange things in that picture O_o

so anyways now a question. Someone said to, instead of taping the stencils down, use spray adhesive to glue it on. What should I use, and doesn't it leave sticky residue?
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Annie Goes Goth? and a trip down memory lane NOW WITH TUTORIAL on: June 07, 2005 09:23:39 PM
Since my school doesn't buy into stereotypes at ALL, today was Goth Day *eye roll* durring our spirit week...but being positively brimming with school spirit, I made a skirt;

on my nasty floor

a close up of the lace detailing along the waistline. I destressed it and ripped it, I also hemmed the bottom of my skirt with it

And now the whole outfit, I had already come home and taken my makeup off, but I can get pictures if you're interested in seeing it.

the back, orthe thing that closest resembles a shot of the back


In order to make this skirt you have to know how to make a circle skirt
You follow all the steps to make a circle skirt, except you don't round the edges
After you've cut a hole into the center of the fabric, you hem all four of the edges after you cut it to the length you want.

You will repeat this step as many times as you want, the more layers you have, the poofier it is.I recomend working with a thiner fabric, and tulle. Your first layer should be the the shortest, the  next a 2-3 inches longer, and so on and so forth so that each layer is visible.

You then sew the pieces onto the waistband, layering so that the corners don't overlap

and TADA!

You have just been treated to the crappiest tutorial ever! I hope you enjoyed it and if you have any questions feel free to PM me

And now my Retro-fab skirt. A boy in class said I looked like a 50's house wife (hm...)
The waist line was pretty plain so I sewed a obi like belt. It was a thick piece of white fabric which was bisected by four ribbons alternately turquoise and black, which tied in the front. I didn't get any pictures of it before it fell apart. But here's the skirt anyways

My very first A-line ever and I did it without a pattern

my floor wearing it

and on me, sorry for the awkward angle

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Just because he made you a mix tape didn't mean he was serious on: May 28, 2005 09:27:39 PM
I stenciled this shirt for my friend Jessie today. I wish I had been able to get the text bigger but alas! Word has no love in it's heart for DIY nerds. It's my second stencil and my first time doing letters, I'm pretty happy with how it came out.

and a close up of the mix tape;

and a little shot of "in the process"

and a teaser for my next stencil!

Here's the shirt...1.35 woot!

Garbage dahling! Think Garbage ^_~
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Robots always know what to say. But they aren't good kissers. on: May 13, 2005 10:08:41 PM
My first attempt at stenciling here ^__^

I'm very pleased with how it turned out and wore it to school today with my new hair cut.

So without further ado

and a close up of the stencil <3

Feedback? I'm a first time stenciler so if you would like to impart some crafty knowledge to me I'd be eternally grateful Cheesy
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / oh what tangled webs we weave... on: May 02, 2005 10:09:11 PM
yes I realize this has nothing to do with my subject.

I did the baisic pants to skirt thing. Then embellished the back pockets with buttons. Sorry it's so wrinkly, I had been wearing it. I really love it, but I feel SO preppy wearing it. Ugh

So anyways;

this is the back that I embellished with buttons. Originallly I was going to sew a patch on, but the patch was green and there was just to much...green. I don't want to blend in THAT much. ^_~

The front, it looks way sexy on my nasty carpet.

and the obligatory crappy mirror picture

the skirt looks lumpy but it's not...well it is, but to a lesser degree. Comments please

kiss kiss
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Jumping on the bandwagon with my summery skirt on: April 18, 2005 10:26:48 PM
I found the most HIDEOUS old sheet you have ever seen at good will. This vintage yellow print. I saw it, and it (and it's super low price) called to me. I payed my two bucks and brought it home to play with. I decided to make a circle skirt (My first ever, and my first time sewing a skirt without a real pattern)
Don't mind mah belly

Hah, I look so high in that picture because I was staring at the camera screen. Photobucket is also being a hore, so I'm upside down -_-;;;

I had a lot of trouble with the waist band (if you look closely you can see the lumpy sides. My material wasn't stretchy (it was actually the trim of the orignal sheet) and I couldn't get it to sit right on my hips *tear*
10  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Movie Ticket Stubs on: April 18, 2005 11:00:53 AM
Hey, so over spring break and the past weekends, I've really done nothing but go to the mall and watch movies (it's taken some what of a toll on my wallet to...*tear*) and I was wondering if there was something crafty I could do with all the ticket stubs? I know there must be!
