11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: ♪My Hat Plays Music!♪ [img heavy] on: April 06, 2007 11:02:11 AM
Thanks for all the nice comments, everybody Grin

I didn't use a specific pattern for the hat...I just cut and stitched until things looked right.  I made copies of all of my pattern pieces so I wouldn't have to rely on luck again.

Unfortunately none of my friends want one yet...(They claim the urge to use it during class would overtake them and make them fail.)...so I don't have a tute for you guys. Undecided  Don't worry...I'm sure my friends will come around soon. Cheesy

This could easily be classified as the craziest idea I've ever had.  But I got an mp3 player for my birthday (6 months ago), and I've hardly every used it because I hate hate hate cords hanging around my neck. (not to mention those earbud things don't fit at all...)

Thus...the 'Hat-phones' were born.


You can kinda see the mp3 player poking out of the hidden pocket in the lining...

A better picture of the attached headphones cord and the secret pocket.

The top of the hat, the color's a little wonky...it's hard to take pictures of the top of your head! Tongue ...plus a close-up of the coolest button ever (25 cents for a pack of 5 of these at the thrift store)

(I think this could be rather useful for those long lecture-type classes...as long as I keep it soft enough so I can still hear the teacher.)

I should probably clarify that the headphones were stitched onto a piece of fleece, and stitched to the inside of the band so they sit right over my ears...I noticed no decrease in sound quality, and when I wore it to town, nobody around seemed to hear anything...so it's all good.

I wish I had some pictures of the inside wiring and such...but I was so caught up in my inspired streak that I totally forgot...sorry guys Undecided...if perchance one of my friends wants one, I'll take some process pictures...

Thanks for looking anyway! Grin


13  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Three Metalocalypse Tees!!! on: February 04, 2007 07:54:54 PM
Group shot

Close-up of the Pickles shirt...I thought about adding more stuff...but it looks pretty cool plain

Dr. Jonathan Twink-let-its and a banana sticker.  My 11 year old sister did this one...her first stencil ever...she deserves a cookie...and even better, she's agreed to let me borrow it!

Toki...the paint was wet when I took this picture so the color's a little wonky...I stenciled the outline and words then painted in the colors...pretty cool...

Thanks for looking!

I decided to do an instructable/tute for this last night when I couldn't sleep.  If anybody has questions about it, feel free to ask...

actually i have a question...is the pick guard made out of interfacing?
No, actually I drew a basic outline of my pickguard and stenciled it on the denim with white acrylic paint.  I then decided it looked too slapped on, so I sandpapered it so it would feel soft like the rest of the denim and have a bit of a worn look...

Thanks for the comments and questions...I'll try to get the tute up sometime tonight or early tomorrow...Happy New Year everyone...!
16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Guitar-Shaped Backpack (with TUTORIAL LINK!) on: December 28, 2006 08:26:05 PM
I've never made a purse or bag before...much less one with no pattern.  But when my backpack decided to split and spill all my books on the floor one day, I decided to give it a shot.  I stole the straps from my broken backpack, but the rest is all my work (the little decorations are just pins and patches I found in my junk)...I think it'll do nicely for a semester of college...

The front

The top

The back

Unzipped (Hello Calculus Book!)

Inside with the leopardy pocket

I reinforced the front panel with some thin poster board stuff I found in the garage, so it holds its shape while I wear it.  (I sprayed it with laquer to waterproof it somewhat, but I don't expect it'd survive on a hike through the icy slopes of mount everest)  I decided on a side zippy because I didn't want to mess with the zipper and curves at the same time...turns out I had to go around the curve anyway...oh well I still love it...

Comments are always appreciated, and even though I didn't get any in progress pics, I remember how to do it well enough to make a tute if anybody wants one...

Thanks For Looking! Grin
17  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Show off your hair! And questions about hair styles! on: December 23, 2006 07:57:10 PM
It's been a while since I posted to this thread, but since I decided to do something that's asked about lots (going more than four shades lighter at home), I thought I'd post pics before I asked my questions.

I started here (hi-octane orange over faded red and black hair)

After three days of chemicals and a few protein treatments, here I am

It turned out to be the hardest hair color EVER to take a picture of...as you can tell by my washed out skin and greenish tinge to the hair.  The one on the left is closest to my real color.  I think it came out pretty good considering I saved 100 bucks doing it at home.  (there's not that big of a color difference all the way down the hair either...my camera's just stupid)

I don't know if I love it or hate it, we'll see once I figure out what kinda make-up and clothes go with such a drastic color change...(suggestions for that would be very welcome)...although my hair isn't damaged at all considering, a haircut is in order...  Would it look ok if I cut my hair off right at the shoulder and then shortened up the layers just a little?  Maybe trim the bangs too?

Sorry to ramble...it's just that I haven't had blondish hair in more than three years...and I'm finding myself a little lost...THANKS FOR READING Grin
18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Sheet to Hoodie!!! on: December 20, 2006 05:29:40 PM
wow! i love it! did you use any sort of pattern with it?

Thanks!  I didn't use a pattern, per se, but I did look at a few of my existing hoodies for reference, and a few of my sister's non-stretch shirts.  Then I kind of mixed what I saw...
19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Sheet to Hoodie!!! on: December 20, 2006 05:20:37 PM
I wanted to make hoodies and I decided I wanted to try making them out of bedsheets.  I've been collecting random sheets for the last six months, but I wanted to make sure I knew what I was doing before I went ruining them.  Today when I found this old transformers sheet, I knew it was the one I wanted to experiment on.  I'm pleasantly surprised with my result, and although the pattern's a little too cluttered and maybe a bit too psycho to wear outside, I'll definitely romp around the house and sleep in it.  It's thin, but it's baggy enough for me to slap a long sleeved shirt underneath it and still be warm.

As always thanks for looking!!!
20  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Flowery Green Halter Dress on: December 16, 2006 03:35:01 PM
I got this odd fabric from the thriftstore for a dollar...and decided to try making a dress out of it.  I still have 5+ yards of the stuff...and a charming new dress...

The pics are kinda crap because I couldn't find anybody to take pictures of me wearing it...BOO!

I was making a stupid face so I cut it out...
The back isn't crooked like that, I'm just standing kinda funky...
and there's my final attempt to get my face and the dress to cooperate in the same picture

It doesn't have a zipper...the material doesn't stretch...so it's pretty much MAGIC that I manage to get it off and on...  I have some old ninja turtle and batman sheets that might look cool in this style, and when I try that I'll add some elastic in the back to give it a little stretch...I'm still proud of myself for dreaming up my own design...so it's all good...

Thanks for looking!!!
