11  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / my first circle skirt ::sigh:: on: August 09, 2005 04:11:15 PM
I was ready to take the plunge and try out my first clothing project. I figured 'circle skirts are easy! it's the perfect thing to start out with. no pattern, minimal sewing. this'll be great!'

now, I have a piece of fabric with a hole in it about 3 times bigger than my waist. wtf?!? I measured my waist. divided it by 4. folded the fabric twice (to make a square 1/4 the original size). measured a quarter circle that is 1/4 of my waist onto the proper corner. cut.

12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / pseudo-corset lacing on: August 05, 2005 04:20:06 PM
okay, so I have a ribbed tank top that is just crying out for reconstuction. I bought a pack of eyelets and the things that you set them with(with the help of a hammer), and I just wanted to ask, how would I go about making the back corset-y? I've already read the tutorial about how to make a t-shirt corset, but I don't have a sewing machine and suck at hand-sewing Sad. would it work if I used iron-on stitchery to make the part where the eyelets are attached(by putting it inside the shirt in the part where I want the ribbon to be secured, folding over it and ironing, to make a part that sticks out), hammered the eyelets into it, and laced it up? I think that the iron-on stuff would act as interfacing, and make the fabric less stretchy, so there woudl be less of a chance of the eyelets popping out. am I way off, or would this work?

I'm sorry about being so unclear Sad

please help  me out  Embarrassed
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / red and black spiky duct tape bag!! on: August 04, 2005 04:18:45 PM
most of this was done while watching a clockwork orange (again) a few night ago, and I have to say, I am extremely happy with how it came out. (I guess ACO gets the craftiness going)
edit: thanks BananaAmbush for the idea and the tut!




in action (excuse my ugliness and the fact that I look like I'm 12(I'm not!))

so.. yeah. comments?

14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / accesories as self defense? on: August 04, 2005 04:11:48 PM
sure bet.

I got really bored last night and my dad's toolbox was lying beside me, and I saw a pack of finishing nails in it, and thought "...hey... these are sorta cool." plus I have a pic of bones delarge from the lower class brats (punk rock band) singing, and he's wearing a white wristband with what look sorta like nails in it and... okay enough rambling more pics

basically duct tape fabric 1 strip wide studded with nails

looking back, it reminds me more of something that the singer of gwar might wear and not LCB, but whatever. I think it's cool. I'm gonna make a matching collar, and try using different colors of tape and different nails. dad will sure be curious about where all his nails are going soon...  Grin

15  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / skeleton hand stencils on: August 02, 2005 04:18:43 PM
so, I've been obsessing over the misfits recently, and I was watching the video for dig up her bones and digging glenn's gloves when I thought, 'hey, I could do that!'
so, does anyone have skeleton hand stencils?
my backup plan is to use the stencil from that misfits shirt with the hands on the boobs,
http://www.allposters.com/-sp/Women-s-The-Misfits-Skeleton-Hands-Babydoll_i1122844_c44034_.htm<--like that, but they are too...squeezy. lol

so...yeah. help me out?
16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / record cover bags on: August 01, 2005 12:24:12 PM
okay, I recently made a record bag (inspired by dirt_made_my_lunch) (I'll post it when I make the strap Sad), and now I have 2 delicious record covers left over. I want to make a bag with one, but how would I go about it? I want to inflict at little damage as possible to it, it's from '77, I doubt that I can replace it if I fuck up Sad

17  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Andre the Giant has a posse! on: July 29, 2005 03:18:25 PM
... and I'm in it, I guess.

probably more like shepard fairey's posse.

stencilled onto an old red tank top that I found in my closet.

I am amazed at how clean the lines came out  Shocked Cool

I sprayed the stencil with spray adhesive on my porch and the glue and overspray picked up some dust so now I have andre stencilled in glue and dirt in front of my house. cool.

19  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / baby shoes, spongebob, and hiligher yellow fabric?!? (image heavy) on: July 28, 2005 04:28:47 PM

these are the shoes, they're converse hitop style. they're for 9 month old babies, so they're really small. I got them for $.50 at a yard sale, and the only thing that I can think of is donating them to a charity

pirate spongebob!! I love this guy. this is the little one, I also have the meduim one(don't ask -_-). he's probably about the size of a hand (including his legs). all I can think of is hollowing him out and making a camera bag/wallet, but since I already have lots of different ideas for both, I don't want to hurt spongebob for that. Sad

also, I have about 3 meters of flourescent(sp.?), really really really freakin bright yellow fabric. I forgot what it's called, but it's heavier and coarser than cotton but still pretty thin (not sheer though). I want to make a skirt with it, but I'll stil have a bunch of leftover, so what can I do with it?

something is telling me that spengebob and the yellow fabric belong together. but how? a bag or something?

help me out  Sad
20  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / black and red duct tape camera bag!! on: July 28, 2005 02:55:59 PM
so, I just got my digital camera about a week ago, and I decided to make it a bag. after looking at all the amazing duct tape bags on craftster, I decided to give it a go.

it's made of bright red duct tape and black and red electrician tape for the bow and black part around the top. my camera is happy now. Grin

edit: I changed it around after I made the bow and I finally found the pictures. here it is now:
