1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Spring cami (feat. matryoshka and caffeine molecule!) - art on stained camisole on: March 24, 2007 06:06:15 PM
So, I have this long green cami which I really like, but one day, when I washed it with my new black tights, the black colour ran and stained my green cami! What's a craftster to do...
I decided to have fun with it: I bought a laundry marker and drew on the cami in hope of distracting people from the stains (in retrospect when I should have gone with a design that focuses more on the top part, which is stained more).



I quite like how the drawing turned out, especially since I managed to weave in my fave things - dandelion, plants, matryoshka/kokeshi, molecules (yes the plant on the right sprouts caffeine molecules, among others). I wish the fabric marker is more 'black' though - not enough contast as it is.


Do you think I should draw more stuff on the top part of the cami to distract from the stains there? Or should I just leave it as it is?
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Vinyl pop art kanzashi flower & rosette pin on: January 25, 2007 04:40:39 PM
I've got these set of vinyl car window stickers which I don't really use,  so I cut them up and turn them into these pins. One is kanzashi and the other one is just a rosette.

The kanzashi one was very fiddly to do, but I quite like how they turn out. I think it looks rather mod/pop art-ish. Smiley

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / A couple of flower pins on: January 25, 2007 10:26:29 AM
I made a couple of flower pins recently using fleece I cut up from a thrift store sweater.

This one I made using a tutorial found somewhere on the net, but I can't remember which one it is!

I can't get the flower to stay open (as in it bunches together when I keep the pin in my purse) - any tips on how to remedy that?

Two more pins:

One is kanzashi flower, and the other I just made from fleece strips.

(I can't really sew so choosing fleece is actually quite stupid - I spent ages trying to push the needle through the fleece. Also, since my sewing skill is rather nonexistent, the backs of these pins are rather ugly with threads showing haphazardly everywhere, but I covered them with another layer of fleece.)

On a side note, I was wearing these pins today, and a friend commented that I tried to beat the winter blues by trying to bloom in spite of the winter  Grin
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / homemade paper muffin pan on: May 31, 2005 05:50:56 PM
I don't have a muffin pan but don't feel like buying one since I don't bake that much so I tried making paper muffin pans. They're just rings made fr paper really. Amazingly they worked and they lasted more than 1 baking sessions too.
Here's the pic of the muffin rings and here's the picture of the cupcakes crossed with brownies I made:
