31  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / ?tion about faux silkScreen'n on: June 30, 2006 12:28:34 PM
So yeah I used the livejournal > http://www.livejournal.com/community/craftgrrl/3674467.html

 do da. But it's oh - so blotchy & bleah! I have some questions, could some one help me out? I thought i could open out my lines, If I use like- acetone with a tooth pick will it take the glue off? Should I wait to pull the "screen" off of my fabric? let it dry? I've tried using both a sponge and brush to apply the ink. the brush is better, but -ehhh. maybe i'll just have to touch up? I just use water to clean my "screen", should there be more? can you tell its supposed to be a pug?

33  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / curtains with Ivy on: May 20, 2006 01:21:50 AM
I made these a while back, but I thought I'd post anyway. My curtains really are a much better shade of Pink & Green. I used two layers of fabric, so t would be dark, and the plaid pattern woudn't be sun worn. Defintly wanted it to be thick, I MUST have darkness.

But after the sun rises, I have my morning vine peeking through. hopefully you can see it. You could do more I suppose, but its really simple like this.

whadda think?
34  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / I know his name. His origin...??? on: April 11, 2006 03:07:53 PM
Yes it's true. I'm almost thirty and there is still a stuffed animal on my bed. Good news is my boyfriend doesn't think ill of Bogey (my old,old shirt tail). He actually asked me to make him a stuffie. This little guys face was the first thing that popped in my brain.

side view

I think of him as a cross of a lemur and a mexican dog, that ISN'T a Chihuahua. my roommate thinkns there's a bit of a yak in there too. I made a muslin version of him, (actuallly three, but only one werked) just to make sure it was going to werk. Legs at the same height, etc. I love him!!
35  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Project Lame way on: March 17, 2006 05:35:08 PM
So a local vintage store had a mock project runway one-off. I got three things and were expected to make some thing fabulous. I got this

this white slip type thing that was crumply, and a extra large white T-shirt and

this great green gold tacky dress.

 Decided to make this into a durndl. I didn't really have a pattern. I just looked online at pictures of durndls and eye balled it.  It poofs out in the back a bit, she didn't have much of a butt in the first place, so it was a plus. I didn't win, but hey I like it. I'd wear it but I don't have a 24 inch waist - never have.  Hey sorry about not being able to make my pictures show up, and you have to do the clicking thing. - hey ...comments?
36  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Durndel/ dirndl help por favor. on: March 03, 2006 06:37:26 PM
 Hey ya'll I had a chinese stlye dress & I'm trying to make it into a durndel (ya' know those octoberfest/st.paulie girl dresses!). I got the bottom part pretty well figured out, but it's the top.
  I'm making the zipper in the back, utilizeing the one already there.  For the front though- I'm working from two pieces of fabric, not one. Of course it's gonna be low cut to show off the -ahem- native goods.  Any one got/know a pattern? Ideas?  gotentaggen {sic} thanks!
37  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / problem with pattern, help please! on: January 22, 2006 11:24:04 PM
i'm following what i thought was a basic shirt design (sans it has a cowell neck).
I'm having problems with the sleeve. I have too much extra material while pinning the sleeve onto the shoulder.  The material was cut as the directions said. Should I
-make the sleeve its self shorter but preserving the "bell" shape at the top
-keep some aspect of the "bell" but cut the top part of the bell shorter
-cut up the under part of the sleeve with total disreguard of the original pattern

its a jersey/sweatshirt material so puffy sleeves is not the look for this shirt. i tried pinning it from the armpit up & viceversa. Please help.
38  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My tshirt + other things quilt. on: November 23, 2005 01:32:14 AM
It took alot longer than it should have, (started by hand, till sewing machine was found), about a year & a half in all. I wanted to make some sort of pattern quilt, but a little arty {?] insted. Hence the tree in the middle.


It's all old t-shirts,pants,sweaters & hoodies. It pretty much is a solid decade of clothes, memories & stories. It's HUGE though. My 6'5" roomate is standing on the bed! I had a thicker back, (large pieces of said sweatsirts, etc) that was a mistake, so I just sewed it to an existing duvet cover.
39  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / worst team in baseball (bag & shirt w pics) on: September 06, 2005 11:12:42 PM
I made this out of a old Royals kids satin jacket. I want to put pearl snaps on the 'front' pockets.   I think I might redo the strap, for it hangs too long on me. I would have made it not as deep if I were to do it over again.  

I found this old ass polo shirt & tried to snaz it up a bit.  Kimono lightin'!
40  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / MUUmuu to hoodie (pics now) & tute-ish on: August 16, 2005 12:46:22 AM
I love old people & their fabric. I had this Grandma muu-muu type thing. I was truly inspired by Astrea

 here's before

and I turned it into a hoodie, I put pockets on, ( but not very well),and a green zipper as well.

I'm thinking about trying o make it thicker for colder weather. Any ideas on how? good material for it? any comments on the piece in general? Thanks! This is my first post!
