11  I Need Some Help....Again in Stenciling: Discussion and Questions by xstillxherex72 on: September 14, 2005 12:05:18 PM
Ok so I'm going to an amazing AMAZING concert this October, Joel Plaskett Emergency & The Trews, So.....I would like to have a shirt to go to it Smiley but the trouble is, I don't have a stencil of Joel. If anyone has A GOOD stencil making thingy, can you PLEASSSE make a stencil of the following picture? I'd love you forever and ever lol. On the back I'm probably going to make a list of songs off his CD, or his tourdates, or lyrics from one of his songs Smiley

(and either one is ok Smiley )

much love

12  Computer Geekiness! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by xstillxherex72 on: September 14, 2005 11:48:21 AM
Soooo I was originally going to sell this, but instead, decided to break down my "clothing line" and so here is my beautiful Computer Geek shirt.

front. the shirt is a wonderful thrift store find, a Hanes, that fits me perfect.

closeup. i got the text off of some text site that supplies all the text and everything, its in pixels and all caps. and the guy stencil, i think i just searched computer guy or something on google and up that came. i used fabric marker.

back. it says "i dream in pixels" in extremely pixelated letters. took me a long time to cut out all those little squares!

much love

15  I LOVE JORDY'S! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by xstillxherex72 on: September 03, 2005 06:51:11 PM
I finished my first Jordy about an hour ago, I love it!
I used thejordy's tut for it and used her measurments as well, but didn't add a closure of anytype. It's made of this really heavy grey material (not tweed) and some soft pink pinstripe stuff. personally, it's too professional for me, but I think I'll sell it or give it as a gift or something!
So here's the pics:

this is the whole thing

closeup of the outside fabric (don't stare at it too long!)

17  Cell Phone Holders/FacePlates in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by xstillxherex72 on: August 29, 2005 05:23:16 PM
Is there anyway to make a strong cellphone holder without using felt? Can I make one with duct tape?
Also, is there anyway to make interchangable cellphone faceplates? Here's what my phone looks like (its a camera phone, so i'd like that to be shown too). can i make something out of duct tape for this??

much love!

18  Hey! This ain't no tote! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by xstillxherex72 on: August 29, 2005 02:41:02 PM
So there I was, happily following along OhMyStar's tut on making a tote bag, and when I flip it so it's rightside out, I find that the handles are *shock* inbetween the lining and the outside!  Shocked So what could I do? Carry around a tote that has no handles like an oversized clutch? No!
So this morning, I cut a tiny little hole where one of the sides of one of the handles were, and low and behold, it was there! Then I ran across another problem: I couldn't make 3 more lucky-guess holes to where the other handle attachements were! And it JUST WOULDN'T WORK!!! So, in my effort to pull the handle out completely to cut it in half so I could painfully measure where I put the other handles and then tie them all together, the top of the bag closed up like a drawstring bag! Well oh my God. There I had it. A tote bag turned into tote clutch turned into drawstring tote.

outside, open (yes the lining is supposed to stick out like that, but no, not that much, but yes, i fixed it!)

outside, closed

holding it up, closed

the lining.

So anyways, the handle drawstring type thing is a strip of denim that's not hemmed. Hmm...
thanks for readin' the story!

much love

20  The Roaring 20's in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by xstillxherex72 on: August 25, 2005 06:35:35 PM
Would anyone know anyway to make 1920's style clothing? I love that era of fashion!! So: any tips, any tuts, any ideas, any styles, any accesories, any cuts, anything!
Here's a couple of guide patterns:

is there any ways to modernize this alittle so when i wear it i don't look like a bride walking down the street?

again, anyways to modernize it?

i love this!!!

and i also found this sketch of a bonnet-type thing that reminds me of those dreadlock hats. the fashion is from 1802. anyone know how i can make it, without knitting/crochet? (it is the first one.)

much love
