1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / stenciling a laptop on: February 14, 2008 08:38:03 PM
One of my friend bought/donated an OLPC (laptop.org) and doesn't really enjoy the green color. So after joking around a bit he agreed to have the inside stenciled in pink with Hello kitty's if I would find a stencil end a way to do it properly. Finding the stencil is not a problem since I'm pretty good with illustration tools but my question is what kind of material should I use for the stencil. We are planning on using spray paint and I would like to minimize the under spray.   Huh
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / first quilt - a year in the making on: October 28, 2007 06:24:25 PM
I present to you my first quilt. I took inspiration from a quilt I have found here, called the lavender quilt if I remember correctly. It is machine quilted even though I now wished I would have gone the hand quilted way. Quilting such a big piece on a home machine, even with a walking foot, is pretty hard. I made a little tag on the back out of remenant linen I had lying around. Here are the pictures:

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Cabo halter on: July 30, 2006 02:01:27 PM
I made this recent from amy butlers pattern Cabo halter
Size: xs
Fabric: from fabriville (fabricland)
mods: none
note: I had to cut down a 50 cm zipper to size because I could not find the required length in an invisible zipper
Pattern was very easy and fast, even though a little bit big in the chest and small in the hip area
I will definetaly make more.

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / clutch / fanny pack bag on: June 06, 2005 08:17:11 PM
Alright I made this bag in about 2 hours from fabric scrap. I have to admit it a complete rip off from this.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / rowan's toledo on: June 06, 2005 08:11:47 PM
I just finished my toledo from rowan 37. It took me about a month to finish. It's done in All season Cotton in Cookie and instead of woving in some yarn I wove in some silk I had lying around. I'ts a little big in the back and the cut isn't all that flattering but I still like it.

some pictures:

7  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / finished pin up queen on: May 17, 2005 06:25:05 PM
alright so I finally finished my pin up queen from the first stitch and bitch. It took me about 9 months to complete and was my first sweater and it's way too big in the boob area even though I put in only half of the increases...

It was done in cascade 220 in a cream color.

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / McQueen Kimono top on: March 08, 2005 03:25:01 PM
Alright so I finally finished this project ( to read more about the pattern click here).
It took me about a week to complete. 2.5 meters of 150cm wide fabric. A pack of bias tape. a whole bobin of thread and lots of patience.

For some reason I can't get any good shots of the back... but it looks way nicer in person!!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / McQueen kimono jacket on: February 25, 2005 12:54:07 PM
Alright, so I decided that I would take on the kimono jacket from McQueen as my next sewing project (It can be found at showstudio.com here.)

The only thing is the instructions aren't all that complete so I was wondering if someone could help me with them:
1- Are the seem allowances included on the pattern (I'm thinking no.... but i'm not too sure)
2- How many pieces of each do I have to cut? (so far I have deciphered that i needed two pieces for number 1,3,4 and only one for number 2)

any help would be greatly apreciated
