141  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Arggh! It's my new favorite hoodie she be! on: September 06, 2005 12:25:17 PM

The stencil is from stencilxcore, the URL for which I can't find right now.

I'm really new at stencilling, so any constructive comments/critiques would be appreciated.

Thanks for looking!
142  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Tattoo your towels? Tattoo your hoodies, too! (a bit pic heavy, I reckon). on: September 04, 2005 09:56:22 PM
Actually, the hood has been removed, but you get the idea.
I was kinda trying to make it look like actual tattoos, just with the placement and stuff. It was an early attempt at embroidery, so it's not my tidiest work ever.

The whole front, though slightly off-centre.

The back plus the left sleeve.

and through the magic of folding, the front and the top and bottom of the other sleeve all in one pic. There's also an anchor on the inside of the left "wrist", but the picture didn't come out.

Just though I'd share it with you guys. Thanks for looking! Smiley
143  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / The last shoulder bag I will ever need. on: September 04, 2005 09:40:23 PM
I always need to have a huge purse of some sort, and I hate having to move my stuff from one bag to another - something important always gets left behind. Also, my discman and earphones (yeah, yeah. I'm living in the past) always take up too much room and make me worry that they're going to get damaged. I've finally solved all these problems in one shoulder bag that I really love. (Sorry, the pictures are crap.)
There's a pocket on the back for my discman and a loop with a snap on it for my earphones.
The patch comes off with snaps, so I can change them as much as I want. (The stencil on the one in the pic is from stencilxcore.)

It's nothing really fancy, but I'm so pleased with it I just had to share.
Oh, and it has Pac-man lining!

Thanks for looking!
144  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / My first attempt at knitting something other than a scarf.... on: August 04, 2005 06:52:38 PM
For awhile, I was quite content to knit scarves and dish cloths (in other words, squares and rectangles). Then I discovered Stitch 'n' Bitch and was so excited to knit a hat with kitty ears on it! I really had no idea how to read a pattern, and hat never even knitted in the round before, so I got through the beginning part just fine, then completely misunderstood the instructions and went from knitting the first 2 inches of the hat to decreasing. I left out the whole middle of the hat!!!! I pretty much had a knitted yarmulke. I went ahead and finished it, it was good practice for decreasing, and I still have it. My mom and aunt got a good laugh at it, and so did I once I got over feeling like a complete arse!!! Roll Eyes

I wasn't too discouraged, and went on to knit a half dozen kitty and devil hats (and one based on that pattern that looks like an old pilot's helmet with goggles) that turned out just fine! Wink
145  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Tricky fabric, looking for suggestions. on: July 24, 2005 08:44:50 PM
I've got a bit of an embroidery pickle here! I've got a cute red sweater that's just crying out for some Sublime sugar skulls, but it's acrylic, so ironing on the transfer is out, and it's kind of a fuzzy texture, so the white transfer paper I have now barely makes a mark on it. I would love to hear any suggestions on how to get a design onto it!!!

Thanks in advance!
