21  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / My First Shirts! (Mission Trip) on: May 12, 2007 01:09:07 PM
I took a screen printing class at my high school and I just finished my first shirts. I made them for a mission trip I'm going on this summer to do home repairs. Out of the 36 I printed, only two didn't turn out, so I'm really excited about them.
(the silver color is much nicer in person)

I made these in my cultural anthropology class at school, and they're super comfy! They took a long time, but it was way worth it.


On me:


23  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My pretty pink quilt on: September 26, 2006 07:42:34 PM
so, this is the first pieced quilt i've done. It's tied, and the backing is fleece. ( i don't think i'll do that again, it was killer to try to get the needle through the fleece when i was tying it!)

24  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Frank-n-furter and a caterpillar - 2 new shirts on: July 11, 2006 07:47:43 PM
I got both of the stencils from stencilry. the caterpillar one is for my friend's birthday, i really like how it turned out.

I'm not quite as happy with frank-n-furter though. i'm not sure what it is, it just looks a little off. I do like the sparkley red lips though.
25  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Clay Covered Bottles on: July 06, 2006 10:08:09 AM
After i made one of these, I ended up looking for all kinds of fun bottles to cover. I haven't quite figured out what to do with them yet, but they're so addicting to make!

27  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Simple Baby Quilts (now with tutorial!) on: May 06, 2006 08:39:02 AM
I made these for a collection for newborns in need that my school was having. I don't know if they really count as "quilts" but they were my first real try at any kind of quilting type project. I don't know if i'll ever have the patience to make a real quilt though.  Wink

Edit: Here's a tutorialfor anyone interested.  Smiley

1 yard backing fabric
1 yard front fabric
1 yard batting
Sewing machine

1. Lay out the batting, then the backing right side up on top of it. Then put the front on the backing right side down (so right sides of front and back will be together.)

2. Sew around all the edges leaving a 6-7 inch opening to turn. Turn the quilt right sides out.

3. Sew close to the edge all the way around the outside of the quilt. Make sure the opening gets closed when you do this. Next do 1 or 2 more borders of quilting equally spaced around the edges. (it's kind of hard to keep the fabric from bunching up here, lots of pinning helps  Wink)

Have fun! If you need anything explained better i'd be happy to try to help!
28  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Cute Kennel Padding on: January 11, 2006 05:50:13 PM
I made this for my boyfriend's dog, lillie. It's two pieces of flannel with a few layers of batting in between, it was really easy to make. It's perfect for her because it's thin enough to be in her kennel (where she likes to sleep) but still soft enough to make a nice bed.
In the kennel:

I just finished this one. I had a little trouble with the lettering, but i think it still turned out ok. I got the stencil from Stencilry (

30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / batman boxers! on: December 23, 2005 07:24:40 AM
 my boyfriend loves batman,so i made him a batman themed christmas gift, including these awesome boxers. They're pretty simple, i used simplicity 9958. The only thing i did different from the pattern was i didn't add the snaps to the fly.
