you did a great job stencilling...and sewing the bag!
Well thanks, but I actually had to free-hand the whole thing because I don't really know how to stencil... Haha.  I just took the cover out of my CD and put it in front of me and then in pencil drew it out on the canvas and then filled it in using paint.

oh man. i love wicked. i'm so jealous you got to see the tour! where do you live? it comes to boston in april and ITS at my school is going to bring a bunch of people but sadly (in this case) I'll be out of the country.
I'm in San Antonio, so I just saw a showing in Dallas.  It's a pretty good cast.  The actress for Glinda, Kendra Kassebaum, did a good job but wasn't nearly as good as Kristin Chenoweth, although nobody really could have done a better job than Kristin Chenoweth, because she was absolutely perfect for the role, in my opinion.  Stephanie J Block did a great job as Elphaba though, even though she sang a little different.  It was a very good show.

I've seen lots of Rent related items here, but I've hardly seen anything Wicked related, so I'm posting my tote bag.  Basically, I'd never used our sewing machine before, but I wanted to learn.  I thought a tote bag was the easiest thing to make that was practical as well for my first time, and since I was going to the national tour or Wicked at the end of the week (I just got back, it was great) I thought I'd make it Wicked themed.  The pictures are a little big; my apologies.  Here it is:

Sewn with black duck canvas, painted with acrylic paints mixed with fabric medium.

A close up of Glinda

And the inside, sort of a lime suede.

These pictures don't really show the color very well though.  For instance, Elphaba's lips on the bag are actually sort of a bright red on the bottom and a light coat of the red at the top like they're supposed to be.  You just can't tell Smiley  I actually found fabric of the exact same shade of green as on the real Wicked picture at Hobby Lobby, and I found the perfect green paint at Walmart.  They just look sort of dull and weird on the pictures.

I made it based on the Wicked logo/poster/cover picture:

Anyway, that's it.

My paper did a feature on him the other day (it was the 365th day), and I thought the whole thing was very interesting.  I liked the cactus a lot.
237  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Penpals Take Two on: October 03, 2005 10:56:05 AM
For people who already have penpals, can they go back and edit their post to a different color, say red or something?  I just found this thread and it's already at 54 pages so it makes it slightly more difficult to find people who need/want a pal.  Also, I noticed the availibility page hasn't been updated for a few weeks now so again, it's hard to tell... Anyway, that would be helpful, although I'm not sure it's really that possible or easy to do.  So anyway, just a suggestion.

238  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Blue/Green Hair Dye on: October 02, 2005 06:01:29 PM
I have dark brown hair that I dye with green kool aid and it doesnt involve bleaching. It's cheap, easy, and last 1 1/2 months.

How did it turn out?  Was it bright or could you only see it in the right lighting? I always thought kool aid dyes lasted a day or so, that is way awesome that it lasted a month!  How did you do it?  Sorry, you've got me curious.

And myself as well...  So even with your dark hair all you needed to do was dump kool-aid on your hair?  I thought those washed out really easily.  How did you get yours to stay?

Make another one and turn it into really cute earrings?
I second that... But the paper could bend or rip so I'm not sure how that would work...
...or submit it for the guiness book of world records
Haha, you should totally look up the record and see if yours is the smallest.
240  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Re: Anyone know where to get cheap convers knock-offs? on: October 01, 2005 01:11:01 PM
The real converse at Famous Footwear are usually just twenty to twenty-five bucks so it's really not that bad.  Actually, I got mine there for 19.99, which is fine because payless sells knockoffs for fifteen or so.  It's true however that mine were oxford (the low cut) so maybe that's why they were cheaper.  In any case, the real ones aren't really that more expensive than the knockoffs if you look around.
