91  My First and Second Attempts at Stenciling in Stenciling: Completed Projects by racehorse87 on: October 16, 2005 05:01:35 PM
First Attempt

Inspired by all the gorgeous stenciling projects on here, and guided by http://www.livejournal.com/community/diy_tutorials/60999.html#cutid1, I set out to stencil a shirt for a friend's birthday.

His favourite word at camp was "Testify!", so I thought I'd immortalize it  Wink



He loved it, and I had my friend take a picture with it on ... but she hasn't sent it to me.

Second Attempt

Emboldened by my success, I set out to make a lovely new shirt out of ugly things I had lying around.

Front view:

Modeling it!

The rest of that outfit and a couple of others is viewable at https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=58628.0

92  My First Attempt at a Standard Pop Tab Belt!! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by racehorse87 on: October 16, 2005 03:54:09 PM
One of my mom's friends made one of these as a gift, and I absolutely loved it. So I decided to make one myself. Seeing as it was my first try, it's pretty streamlined.

2 Black cords (around 1.8 m each)
About 4 pop tabs per inch.

My favourite side:

The less interesting side:

On me!

I'm now in the process of making a pink one ... maybe with beads, we'll see.  Grin

You could be fairies themed as such, rather than being actual water or earth or whatnot.

I love this picture. Maybe it can help with makeup.  Wink

I finished the skirt for my costume!  Grin

It looks a bit like the skirt from this dress:

Except mine isn't quite as full (I was running out of fabric), and only has three ruffles.  Cheesy

EDIT: I now have a piccy of my skirt.  Grin

I saw this and just had to try it. I made some earrings with the microwave method (no pic yet, sorry), and a necklace with the oven method.  Grin

96  (Another) Messenger Bag with Detachable Lace Flower in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by racehorse87 on: September 12, 2005 01:28:53 PM
This is the first bag I've made. I followed the instructions in https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=2038.0 for the basic bag concept, and kind of just winged the rest. It turned out a little flimsier than I would have liked, so I plan to use interfacing next time. It has a tie closure through two grommets in the front panel.

It was for a friend's birthday. I bet you can't guess what her name is.  Tongue

Inside Panel


This is a flower brooch that I made out of lace that can be worn either on the bag, or as a brooch as seen fit. The detail is really crummy, but it is about the size it is in the picture.

97  Dying Knee Sock --> Arm/Elbow warmer in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by racehorse87 on: September 12, 2005 01:22:36 PM
My knee sock was dying, but I love it too much to let it go. Thus I decided to make an arm warmer. It was a little big for my wrist, and I didn't like the way it bunched up when I hemmed it, so I laced a ribbon around and tied it in a bow.  Grin

It was still a little big for my wrist, so I decided to wear it higher up on my arm than conventionally done (as far as I know).

Hope you like it!

One of these days I'm going to try some fray check on it to make sure it doesn't undo all my work.

98  My take on lace up sleeves in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by racehorse87 on: September 07, 2005 07:10:14 PM
My version of lace up sleeves, as inspired by IceLongV14's post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=39913.0

I discovered (during creation of course), that the fabric I used is stiffer and so wouldn't hang the same way. Plus, I had made it too short. Thus came the inspiration to add the second, lacy-er layer. Woot!

Without furthur ado ... the sleeve (note: there are two of them, I just couldn't manage to photograph both myself  Grin) :

Unlaced on the Floor

I also have a pic of the back if anyone really wants to see it.  Cheesy
