1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Watchmen Stenciled T-shirt: The Inversion of Natural Roles on: February 02, 2009 11:38:36 AM
Here are some pictures of a T-shirt I stenciled to give to my kid brother for Christmas. The image is taken (and revised somewhat) from a panel in the graphic novel Watchmen by Alan Moore. He introduced me to the book and now we're both pretty well obsessed.
Here is the final image:

And a picture of the process. I cut the stencils from 4 or 5 copies of the enlarged image (made on my computer scanner) covered in contact paper. To paint the shirt, I used Jaquard Neopaque fabric paint and some cheapo firm-bristled brush. At the end I went in with a tiny brush to add the stars and facial details.

Here's bro wearing it on Christmas morning:

And finally, this is the image I worked from:

Thanks for looking! If you love Watchmen too, check out what I got for Christmas from my mom, new member AndiMo! I am the luckiest! There was a theme this year, I guess Smiley

2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Favorite online sewing supply source? on: November 12, 2008 04:31:50 PM
Hi all! I have been having a hard time finding some more esoteric items at my local fabric stores, and am wondering if anyone knows of any great online stores that have large selections of notions/trims/elastic etc. Specifically I've been looking for patterned elastic and clips for suspenders.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Bicycle wheel motif socks on: December 21, 2006 07:35:42 AM
Hi knitters,
  I recently finished these socks as a thank-you present for a friend and fellow mechanic who taught me how to build bicycle wheels. They are knit top-down from the "Sockulator" pattern found here: http://www.thedietdiary.com/blog/lucia/530.
I used Regia Silk yarn (20% silk, 25% polyamid, 55% merino) in burgundy and blue-gray--slightly pricey, but amazingly soft and nice to work with. The wheel motif (designed by me)  is in duplicate stitch.
Hope you all like!
