11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / FAWN HOODIE ***PLUS ANOTHER FAWN HOODIE ON PG.5*** on: September 06, 2006 07:26:34 PM
so i had this idea in my head for a while that red and gray were a winning combination.

then while browsing some diyers on ebay (this is nothing new) i viewed label of hope's gallery and came across:

and since this was basically what i was looking for i got all excited and drafted up a pattern. (more like took my hoodie, traced, and measured countless times) in the end i produced this:

incase you're wondering what the oval patch on the sleeve is, it's an elbow patch, there's one on each sleeve. i'm pretty proud of it all in all, the only thing i got really mad with was where the heart patch is, was a mushroom i attempted to stencil in red.
for some reason the stenciled went blah hence the patch. i forgot to iron the paint when it dried so in the wash it ran pink!!!!
then i spent an hour or so getting most of it off, but if you look real close at the collar you can see it tinted pink.
12  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / HELP!!! stencil ran, anyway to remove it? on: September 05, 2006 07:41:51 AM
Ughhh, I'm so mad, i made the perfect hoodie with a black fawn stenciled on.
Then, beside the fawn a red mushroom. The mushroom just happened to run and turn several parts of the gray hoodie a pinkish tint.
Is there ANY type of soap/bleach that will remove it or at least semi-remove it?
I used Jacquard Textile.

14  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / sanrio (hello kitty & friends swap)? on: August 30, 2006 10:22:21 AM
i know this isn't exactly a new idea but is anyone up for one of these? (i'm not even sure what round, but i think there has been a few previous ones). i'd be willing to host, i just wanted to see if there was any interest.
15  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / silkscreening different types of fabrics. on: July 27, 2006 05:33:06 PM
lately i've been experimenting with the whole silkscreening process. been quite pleased with the results. i guess i've only been doing it on 100% cotton, because i screened today on a shirt of what i thought to be no different. then i wash it, etc., put it on, and it's cracked. so then i find it's got 38% polyester.
anyways with that tragic story aside, does silkscreening only work on 100% cotton or is there some special way to do blends so they don't stretch and crack?
16  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / 6 SOCK MONKEYS costumes and everything (kinda image heavy) on: July 24, 2006 08:42:10 AM
So I have fallen into the sock monkey hype that has been consuming the nation for several years, haha. I've manage to make a few. And here they are:


Keep a lookout, I just got this book from the library, meaning more animals (aka giraffees) are soon to come.
Really guys, check this book out.

17  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / messenger bags & a slouchy wack yak pack on: July 21, 2006 05:02:46 PM
so after some heavy inspiration off of someone's messenger bag on Etsy i created this bag.
i regret using the cordury, since even with interfacing, i had to use some mad hidden cardboard to support it.
(it has some real cute yellow/white polka dot lining incase you were wondering) it's not for sale though, since i'm in love.

i have a dillemma as to where i should sell them and what their prices should be. see, i've used eBay to sell reconstructed/silk screened shirts and there's a pretty good market for them there. is it the same for orignal handbags there, or would i be better off on Etsy? also, what sort of prices would they go for? i don't want to be greedy, i just want something for my sore fingers after hand sewing those appliques.

here they are:

(the pictures aren't the greatest since my seems to only work in outside light)
18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / vinyl cut-outs? on: July 18, 2006 08:20:16 PM
i'd love to figure out how people do the whole cut-the-vinyl-image on the back thing a la
seems pretty straight forward, but things go wrong when i jump to that assumption.
i'm thinking if i just cut out the vinyl and sew around the shape with the fabric at the back would lead to a unwanted fraying.
i gvie truckloads of appreciation to anyone who can help.
19  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / silkscreening on vinyl? on: July 15, 2006 12:07:01 PM
i was wondering is it possible to screen on vinyl using Jacquard textile.
gosh, i dont know the chemicals or lingo for it, it says it's meant for natural and syntthetic fabrics, but i'm not sure whether or not it will just wipe off vinyl (the immitation leather kind). help is muchly appreciated.
20  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / sock teddy? on: July 06, 2006 08:29:22 PM
well, i've recently fallen into the sock monkey, elephant, and quite frankly everything phase.
so i've seen these sock teddy's floating around the e-web and was wondering if anyone here had a pattern or some knowledge about it haha.
here's a link:
