1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Top Bunk Curtains on: July 02, 2009 12:29:25 AM
So this may be a long shot, as a crafty friend and I have both failed to come up with an idea, but... Next year I am living in a large room with a total of 8 girls, aka a mess and I need a way to get my privacy/sleep while others are awake with the lights on.  SO  I was trying to think of a way to make curtains or drapes for around my bed.  The only trick is I'm on the top bunk of a bunk bed, and since this is not my house, I can't really do anything to the ceiling or walls that will leave large marks/holes. Tacks would be okay, but screw not so much.  Any ideas for how I could achieve this or something similar. Or is this all wishful thinking? Thanks!

2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Woodstock Tote on: August 25, 2007 01:45:26 PM
Something I made my friend for her birthday
It's a stamp from woodstock
it took about 5-6 layers... aka it took forever. cause I had to let each layer dry before starting the next, and I'm extremly impatient, therefore I messed up about a million times and had to retouch. there are also some stray paint blobs but she'll get over it.

close up

on the inside I wrote "all you need is love" with a little heart. didn't manage to get a picture of it though.

but she loves it, and so do I, overall. I almost kept it =]
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / !!Help!! stenciling on cardboard on: February 11, 2006 09:56:09 PM
okay so for a math project I am supposed to put various graphs on a cardboard box, and I was thinking of stenciling/ reverse stenciling (i guess it would be called that, where you put down an image and paint around it) the titles with spray paint
but my question is how do I get the stencil to stay down on the box?
I tried taping it down and it bled... a lot.
and same for the reverse stenciling idea (I really need to find out what thats called)

I'd appreciate any help
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Opinions needed.. shirts to skirt on: February 02, 2006 08:26:50 PM
Okay so I followed this 10 minute skirt tutorial somewhere (I forgot where sorry)
And I have mixed feelings towards the finished project.
So I need all of your honest opinions
or suggestions to make it better
because the more I look at it the less I like it.
here it is
Front (ignore my fat calves):
Side 1:
Side 2:

Oh and I was thinking of maybe stenciling something over where it says "Smack" (if you can see where that it). Any suggestions for a stencil? Or any other way to improve the skirt?
Or is it completely ugly and I should give it up?

Thanks so much

SO I am a HUGE fan of harry potter, and I fell in love with Fred weasley during the 4th movie.

So I made a shirt :]
close up:
so the heart's kinda messed up, but see what I did was just cut the heart stencil out of freezer paper and thought "oh well it probably doesn't need to be ironed down".... and then it bled :[
so i made a bigger heart and painted over it, but it still bled a little.

ohwell... i can't wait to wear it to school tomorrow.... eee speaking of school i better go study for finals now  Cheesy
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Magazinesssss :] on: January 24, 2006 06:07:48 PM
okay so I got the idea from https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=61439.0
but I altered it a bit.
this is what I came out with:
me holding it:

This was before I got out my sewing machine, so I hand sewed the straps and the inside lining. It looks kind of bad, but then again it kinda looks like it's meant to be like that. Then I just hot glued in the lining and velcro patches to close it.
7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Sorry the other one was stupid. Alice on: January 19, 2006 12:02:59 AM
So my friend iis in the play "Alice in Wonderland" at my school. So I decided to make shirts for another friend and I promoting the play.
So far I've only finished my friend's:
close up
It says "I'm Late, I'm Late for a Very Important Date!"
I'm really mad that it bled. Freezer paper has never failed me before, but i guess since this is a ribbed shirt it doesnt work as well. I'll post mine when I've finished. :]

Does anyone know what to use to stencil on ribbed shirts (so it wont bleed)Huh
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Tree Swing shirt!! first post on: January 12, 2006 10:10:56 PM
hey this is my thrid stencil, but my first post.
I used freezer paper and it works amazingly, much much better then cardboard (cardboarad bleeds).
I think the grass kind of ruined it, but whatever, i'm mostly pleased.


close up:

i got the stencil from the stencilry.
hope you like it :]
