1  shirts for Jason Mraz concert in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by this ish misseng on: November 01, 2008 12:11:12 AM
A couple of my floormates and I are going to a Jason Mraz concert on Sunday, so I printed these shirts for us.  I don't know if this design has been printed before, but we thought of it independently, so if someone else came up with this first, don't attack us!  We thought we were being pretty clever.

3  hurray boxes! (pic heavyish) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by this ish misseng on: August 24, 2006 10:10:47 PM
I was told to make 2 donation/survey boxes for YFAT's show (I'm in YFAT.  It's Youth for Asian Theatre.  Shameless self-promotion.) so I did.  And here they are.

top, with nifty donation/survey slot in the girl's abdomen:



almost-identical side:


other top, with nifty donation/survey slot:


side, with Jake Gyllenhaal <3 interview:



And every year we write thank-you/this-is-how-much-I-love-you letters to everybody in YFAT, so this year I wrote them on origami paper and folded paper cranes:

And we drew names to decorate boxes for other people, and I chose... Kat!  So here's her box.
Top, with a little clay man in a 25-cent bubble thing, and a bunny eraser, and a wooden flamingo, and a nifty slot for dropping in letters:


side with secret flap for reaching in to get letters:

secret flap in action:



side, with Kat! spelled in beads:

4  first postable recon... in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by this ish misseng on: August 24, 2006 10:01:45 PM
Made from an Adopt-An-Alleyway volunteer tee.  Um.  Excuse my legs.  I made it for my friend's birthday.  It doesn't function as a dress because it's so short.  Perhaps a swimsuit cover-up.  Anyway, no pattern used.  Blah blah blah.  I don't think it'll come out of a washing machine alive.  Too bad.  Guess she can't wash it.  I didn't hem the bottom.  =(  I will proceed to use fake French.
Le Front:

Le Back:

Comments?  Critiques?  I just hope she doesn't burn it.

5  AAU Fashion Construction (super pic heavy) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by this ish misseng on: August 24, 2006 09:57:48 PM
I took a Fashion Construction class at Academy of Art.  And I made stuff.  Here goes.  BOY I sure hope craftster resizes these...

A bustier (reversible, though it's beyond me why anybody would reverse a bustier):

A halter top:

Picnic tablecloth-ish fabric of the halter:

A-line skirt from potato-sack-ish fabric:

A belt loop on the skirt:

My third-ever zipper:

Not clothing, but too bad.  The zipper's the wrong length:

It's not that noticeable in this picture, but I really screwed up the lining:

Not from class, blah blah blah circle skirt:

Hemming stretchy fabric is not fun:

Oh dear.  That's it.  Comments?  Critiques?  Criticisms?  Hate mail?

6  posters, gift wrap, and math homework in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by this ish misseng on: June 25, 2006 12:16:31 AM
But in the reverse order of what the subject line says.

Does this even count as a paper craft?  I was doing my geometry constructions but my line went off the page, so I made a very sexy flap and drew a shocked girl on it.  The TA found it funny:

And this is not just any roll of toilet paper... It's a roll of toilet paper with my friend's birthday present in it!  Well, not quite.  See, I ordered some t-shirts from Threadless, but they didn't ship in time.  So I printed out the page with the ordering info and glued it onto origami paper.  Then I folded a paper crane and unraveled the toilet paper.  And then re-rolled the toilet paper with the crane on the very inside.  And put a tiny bit of glue on the last square of toilet paper so it'd look new.  And then rewrapped the outer tissue.  And then tied a bow.  So my friend was like WTF until I told him that he should unravel it.

And now some posters I made to advertise Thai tea with tapioca that we were selling to raise money for next year's Junior Prom ('cause I'm on the committee and I'm cool like that):

drink me, i'm sexy:

chicks dig tapioca:

my favorite (viva la graph paper!):

And my Kermesse poster (our school's international food faire sort of event), which I made only because we got extra credit for it:

comic panels...
Johnny and Sally were very happy together...

Until Kermesse, when a mysterious, stereotypical French guy won Sally's heart with his very sexy crepes from his club.  (very sexy crepe):

Johnny retaliated by procuring a bowl of extra beefy beef and brocolli.  The mysterious, stereotypical French guy, meanwhile, seduced an unsuspecting cheerleader with his very sexy crepes.  (extra beefy beef and brocolli):

Johnny and Sally were happy once again, as were French dude and his lady.  Never underestimate the power of food.

(The French Club is well-known in the school for its crepes.  Good stuff.  See how stereotypical the little French guy is?  Beret, striped shirt, black pants, mustache.  I also drew in a basket of baguettes later.  Too bad I didn't add a bicycle.  Har har har.  =_=)

Sorry if this doesn't really count as a craft.  =/

7  three felt pins (kind of pic heavy) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by this ish misseng on: June 24, 2006 11:50:39 PM
Okay, so three of my friends and I have a communal blog sort of thing (it's a secret!  SHHHH!), and every month, we get gifts for each other.  I always try to make my gifts instead of buying candy/snacks like the other three do.  So here's my stuff from... what, April?  I think April, because the theme was spring.  Old stuff, man.  So anyway...

pin fronts:

pin backs:

box tops:

box bases:

box interior one:

box interior two:

box interior three:

box with corresponding pin one:

box with corresponding pin two:

box with corresponding pin three:

ready to go, with leaf-shaped notes:

I posted just because I like the interior of the boxes.  =_=  And those damn pins took me like two hours each.  Which is far too long when you think about it, since I do something every month..

8  beginner's scarf binge in Knitting: Completed Projects by this ish misseng on: March 05, 2006 04:53:15 PM
I started knitting like three years ago, but I got so frustrated at the time and effort it took to complete anything that I stopped.  Then I started again last year.  I still haven't knit anything non-rectangular, and I don't think I'm going to any time soon because knitting is too time-consuming during the school year.  But I digress.  Um.  I knit too many scarves around Christmastime.  Yeah.  I hope I'm slinging my knitting terms around correctly:

Acrylic yarn, stockinette.  For my friend Denise, who has never worn it, probably because she doesn't like pink.  I have no foresight.  =_=

Closeup of the felt ice cream, which, as you can tell, I had trouble sewing onto the scarf:

Scarf for my mom (I'm in love with the color) in stockinette:

Hehehe.. A scarf for my baby cousin because she kept complaining that I was knitting for my friends and not her (but at least I found a use for that little ball of acrylic yarn), garter stitch:

Closeup of the button, har har har:

A furry monstrosity that I gave to my friend and I thought looked nice, but now, looking back, what was I thinking?!  It's soft, anyway:

I think this was for my cousin.  Acrylic, stockinette.  Not very exciting, I have to say.

What I thought was a perfectly good scarf that I knit for my guy friend (pardon my pajamas) in stockinette:

Until I realized when I switched yarns, I bought the wrong one:

;_____;  Knitting makes me kind of depressed.

9  some earrings and a necklace :) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by this ish misseng on: March 05, 2006 04:39:43 PM
Some earrings I made duirng an earring binge after I got my first jump rings and junk.  Sorry for poor lighting.  =_=

The 6th and 7th earrings, I'm tempted to remake because I just strung them on headpins, so they don't dangle very well:

Another picture of the earrings on the far left:

Almost the same picture as the first one, except there's another pair on the far left:

Two more, with jump rings that I realized were too big, too late:

Really blurry, but it's a closeup of the earrings next to the shell things above.  It's a little gold man and woman:

And my necklace, which took 118 jump rings, something less than 15 washers, and 3 hours:

On table!

On me!

10  Completed Valentine's Cards 2006 *seriously img heavy* in Valentine's Day by this ish misseng on: February 18, 2006 11:10:06 PM
Oh dear.  I, being a high school student, felt compelled to make Valentine's Day cards for everyone.  Well, everyone I say hi to in the halls.  Well, not really.  But there are more than twenty.  The insides of some of them are not so exciting, but I wanted to show some of the stickers.  So here we go.

front, with curtains closed:

front, with curtains forced open because I glued it shut before taking a picture (see the lime green heart?):

front (me on the left):

first flap (me on the right):

second flap (me on the left):

Could you tell I was having fun with my iZone?  All those were actually the rejects for this next card:

front (We <3 You):

inside, for sticker:

front (key to my heart, in the heart):

front (key to my heart, outta the heart):

inside, with me making a heart over my eye:

random insides, for sticker/heart design purposes:

front (took me forever to get the lipstick print right, and it STILL looks like I'm frowning):

front, from the Simpsons (the inside says "D'you choo-choo-choose me?"):

front, made with candy hearts painted with nail polish:

front (roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet and so are you.):

inside (the roses have wilted, the violets are dead, the sugar bowl's empty, and so is your head.):

front (this is my heart.  i'm giving it to you):

front (do you believe in magic?):

inside (believe in the magic that can set you free):

front (with digits of pi in background):

inside (especially funny because our math teacher's name is Mr. Hoffman):

front (I don't think the girl I gave this to knew "Love Grows" ("where my Rosemary goes, and nobody knows like me").)

front ("you're beautiful" by James Blunt)

front ("please hold me tight")

front ("i want to buy you flowers" made with candy hearts)

inside (it's supposed to be "it's such a shame you're a boy" but I forgot the "such".  Anyway, it's from "Flowers" by Emilie Simon)

front (I'm so):

inside (hung up on you)

front, made with enough candy hearts to last me a week (ended up giving this to my Chinese teacher because it was leftover and I didn't know who to give it to and my Chinese group likes to suck up to her =_=):

front, cheap five-year-old-kid beads, "all you need is love"

front, "so madly in love" with origami heart

front, "Love Bytes" in what I hope looks like the NAMCO font:

inside, with dum-dum's wrapper that says "I love you"

front (has a peach-colored heart in the palm, but you can't see it):

front of another (has a silver origami heart in the palm, with a note that says "not a heart of gold" slipped into the heart; in case you didn't know, both hands sign "I love you" in sign language.  Yep)

front, for a friend who loved the Da Vinci Code; the backwards cursive is translated to "eyetockenko'd" or something like that, which is "I talk in code", if you take the letters and switch them so A = Z, B = Y, etc.  The note inside the origami heart says "happy valentine's day : )" in binary; the heart says "i hope you like puzzles":

inside, because my friend likes Shakespeare:

front, for a gamer friend of mine; it says "Roses are red, violets are blue" and the background says "Roses are red, my love, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, my love, but not as sweet as you" over and over (from a Bobby Vinton song):

inside, "all my base are belong to you" and "GG NORE" next to my name:



front (flower made of wire):

inside; for some reason I find this ridiculously funny:

front (two buttons and an iZone sticky pic):

front (no shot of the inside; it says "love is just a game"):

ZOMG!  I'm done.  Hope you guys like and get some ideas for next year.  =)  I also wanted to make one with Tetris blocks and say "I'm falling for you".  Hahaha.  Feedback welcome.  Sorry about huge post.
