1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / christmas stocking pattern help!!! on: October 29, 2006 08:03:04 PM
i've been scouring the 'net in search of a nice christmas stocking pattern to knit for the boyfriend. the patterns i have found are rather.... cheesy. what i am looking for is something cabley and arany and preferrably something all in a solid color. i don't really want any images on the stocking itself (e.g. little snowmen and reindeer). anyone have a link to something up that alley?

your help is much appreciated.
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / anatomical heart anyone? on: July 19, 2006 04:32:12 PM
i really want to make a shirt with an anatomical heart stencilled in (not the cartoon valentine's day heart symbol). i've searched around a bit and can't find anything. anyone have any helpful links?

thanks in advance.
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / help with the gimp on: June 17, 2006 11:30:20 PM
so i'm using the gimp to make stencils. i've got the threshold adjustment thing down, but the stencil still looks all blocky. i know that in cutting out my stencil, i can just adjust it as i go along, but i ran into http://img297.echo.cx/img297/631/photoshop6kf.jpg <---- this tutorial for photoshop on making the lines cleaner/smoother. any way to do this using the gimp? or am i simply doomed to x-acto adjustment? thanks in advance.
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / the receiving end of sirens on: June 16, 2006 08:08:52 PM
so, my second shirt! my best friend's birthday was last week and for MY birthday 2 mons ago, she bought me a CD by a band (the receiving end of sirens) that she thought i would like. i LOVE them now and so does she. i thought i'd get her a band t-shirt, but the band's site had lame merchandise. having been recently enthralled with craftster, i thought "why not make my own shirt?!!!" **now with embedded pictures!**

this is the front of the shirt. i scanned some album art images and put them together. then i used the super cheap michael's iron on transfer paper to put it on the shirt.

and the back. this was stencilled with some glittery gold fabric paint and the freezer paper stencil method. it worked great! a *little* bleeding, but nothing really noticable to anyone by obsessive compulsive me.

and some details of both front and back.

close up of the text on the back. i really like how the detail on the font came out. i didn't think it would!

close up of the album art i pieced together and put in the middle of the shirt.

close up of the artwork on the lower left corner complete with a line from her favorite song.

last but not least, i made my own tag for the shirt with care instructions and the date. yay! (the digital camera doesn't understand how to focus sometimes...)

i'm so pleased with this. too bad it's so small or i might have kept it for myself... Cheesy
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / o rly? my first shirt. on: June 05, 2006 11:30:24 AM
my first shirt! it was more or less a test of the iron on transfer paper (some generic cheap stuff from michael's) that i am going to use for a friend's birthday present later on.
THIS shirt is for my boyfriend and the owls are from some weird joke him and his friend have. there's even a website for it (orlyowl.com)... i don't pretend to understand. Smiley anyway, he LOVES IT and the iron on paper worked perfectly. yay!

for my friend's birthday, i bought her a plethora of cute under the sea themed bath products. so, what i'd like to do now is knit her some fishie shaped face cloths. does anyone know where i could find something fish shaped that i could adapt?
thanks in advance!  Grin

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / nursing student gift ideas? on: May 10, 2006 08:56:32 PM
so, a good friend is having her "4th annual 29th birthday" in a coupla weeks. she's a bit of a crafter, so she totally appreciates the whole made gift thing. she's a nursing student (with me!) so i was thinking of doing something nursing themed? she has total nurse pride, so i think she'd love something like that. i just saw the TLSG glasses and i was thinking of making some with some nursey picures on them... any other ideas?
