1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Two reconstructed tops (slightly image heavy post) on: February 20, 2007 08:37:49 AM
The first top, was brought from topshop about 2 years ago in the summer. I really liked it but it was tied at the back (at the very top) and by a rouched strip of material in the middle (at the back). This meant that everything below this flared out a little and generally became very annoying. To combat this, i used Generation T's 'Tying Game' project. The t-shirt now looks like:


and from the front the top now looks like:

The other top, i also brought 2 years ago, but this time the sleeves were seperated at the outside seam (just until it reached the main body of the t-shirt). I also found this really annoying, so i punched holes in each sleeve and tied it together with a ribbon, corset style.

2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Harry Potter - Mischief Managed: Fred and George stenciled t-shirt on: February 20, 2007 07:26:17 AM
I found this icon on Xanga:
and since the twins are two of my favourite characters in the Harry Potter books (+ James and Oliver Phelps do have pretty hair in the 4th film), i decided it would look really good stencilled onto a t-shirt.  

Using a stencil found on stencilry (thank god there was), and a cheap top from H&M, i managed to come up with this:

A closeup of the stencil (taken from stencilry)  

...and a close up of the text:

I was tempted to put 'Weasley's Wizard Wheezes' on the back (at the bottom) as well, but i'm not sure if i should actually bother with this. Hmm, what do you all think?



I have indeed stencilled 'Weasley's Wizard Wheezes' on the back of my t-shirt (ok well i did complete it a while ago, it's just taken me ages to put the pics online)

Now all i have to do is wait for the 21st July....
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitty's Rockstar scarf on: February 11, 2007 06:25:25 AM
I've completed my version of the Rockstar scarf from knitty. I could actually find any Koigu yarn, local to my area, so instead i went for a simple red yarn wool.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / It just had to be done - Gryffindor Scarf on: September 25, 2006 08:03:11 AM
Yes, i just had to get it out of my system for my first 'proper' knit.

So here it is, the Harry Potter Gryffindor scarf:

Unfortunately as you can see it has rolled (i have pulled it out a little on the left hand side so you can see what it should look like), since i've used stocking stitch.

I might considering knitting a 'back' for the scarf and sew them together, but i'm unsure how effective this will be. Has anyone tried this?

If not i'll just say to people that it's a magic scarf which responds to heat. It's curled up right now because it's cold.  Wink

5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / My first try at stencilling on: September 25, 2006 07:36:19 AM
I thought i'd try a bit of stencilling to brighten up some of my tops. For this one i've chosen a (not very original) crow stencil.


On me:

I'm fairly pleased with the way it's turned out, considering it's my first go, and i'd like to do some more in the future.

So, what do you all think?
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Duct Tape in the UK on: May 27, 2006 01:19:37 PM
Heya people, i'm looking to make a few of those duct tape bags. However i'm not sure exactly where to look for it.

I live in Greater London, England and so far i've tried B&Q and Homebase but neither has the clear colour (what an oxymoron) that i'm after. I've also looked on the Hobbycraft website but they don't seem to list it as something they stock.

I'm trying to avoid buying online so any names of high street shops or shop types that do/would stock clear duct tape would be extremely appreciated, thanks.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Band Jeans on: May 27, 2006 10:56:21 AM
Once upon a time, while out in Camden, i saw a girl wondering around with a blazer she'd customised with HIM lyrics and the heartagram. I thought to myself what a great idea.

A few months later i came up with the idea of making some Jeans to honour one of my favourite bands - Epica.

It's taken me about 8 months to actually start them and 2 months to sort them out complete them.

Here's the result:

And on the back:

As youmay or may not of noticed i've got them part singed. I saw them in April when the Jeans were half completed and only 3 of the band members wondered round the place for a little. Still i'm seeing them again in June (on my 18th birthday - hurrah) so i'm hoping to get them completely signed then  Cheesy
8  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Lots of collectable cards and postcards on: May 24, 2006 11:44:08 AM
Well hello there people.

I have lots and lots of pokemon + digimon cards (in all sorts of formats) along with some harry potter cards which i don't really like the artwork on and lots of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy film postcards (though just arthur, trillian and zaphod).
I know they won't really sell on ebay so i'd like to make something creative with them.

I might turn some of the harry potter power up cards into a duct tape bag, but i'm unsure what to do with the rest of them and i'm looking for more interesting ideas rather than just bags, purses all jewellery.
