1  mugglefest mania(4 pics) in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Tom-Kat on: July 02, 2007 10:39:15 AM
So where I live, there is a mugglefest where they are turning one the streets into diagon alley. My friends and I are all going dressed up as characters, and I'm going as tonks. So i made this weird sisters t-shirt for my costume. Don't worry I have more for the costume including a purple wig.

Sorry about the weird pic. It's metallic paint. So it just says weird sisters on the hippogriffs' wings. This is my own design I cut out the stencil myself.
And then I made as graduation presents Dumbledore's Army T-shirts, for the new movie. I cut out the words. the wizard i bought the stencil somewhere.

Upclose of front stencil.
Back with my name Cheesy
I've made like 4 of these in different colors.
Comments are appreciated.

2  cell&Key pouch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Tom-Kat on: January 13, 2007 12:30:44 PM
I've been having this problem when I go on EMT calls keeping track of my car keys, and cell phone because they don't fit in my pocket. So after seeing a cell phone bag I thought to my self why not make one to slide on my belt to put those things in it. Like I don't have enough on my belt with my pager and radio Cheesy, but anyway here it is.
I made it out of some canvas I had left over from somthing, velcro, and a nylon strap for the belt loop.. It's not technicaly reconstructed, but it looks awful cause I can't sew very well that I didn't feel comfortable putting it on the pretty page with fancy bags. All the ripped out stitches/re done stitches make it looke reconstructed anyway.
Go ahead and tell me how I'm in desperate need of some sewing skills Cheesy

4  OMG EWOK! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Tom-Kat on: December 25, 2006 07:34:20 PM
I scrapped this up when i was making presents for my friends. I thought I was going to make a whole battle of endor chess set with ewoks and stormtroopers. But I soon found out that A. X-mas was too close, and B. I don't have enough skills to produce a whole army. But this guy was so cute I kept him anyway. Grin

Pic is a little fuzzy, cause he's small, and he's a bit furry as well. He's not supposed to be that butternut color, more of a dark sweet potato, but o well.

7  Cuff and patch in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Tom-Kat on: December 18, 2006 07:28:40 PM
Making loads of presents recently.
Made two cuffs. Origionally i was going to put snaps on them but once i figured out how to do that, the snaps were too strong, and I couldn't pull them apart without breaking the leather. So now they have holes to lace them up.

The first one has the haggis head from enter the haggis (an awsome celtic rock band), cause one of my friends is obsessed with them. The other one has the cool ying/yang because the friend I made it for and I share the same name, and our friends call us ying and yang.
Just a patch I made from the extra leather from the cuffs. One of my friends is gay and loves the producers. I guess there is a song or somthing called keep it gay, cause he sings it all the time.
Thanks for looking and happy holiday.Cheesy

8  earrings:tree of life, barbie shoes, and somthing i made up in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Tom-Kat on: December 18, 2006 07:23:35 PM
Been busy making x-mas presents for friends recently.
Tree of life earrings, inspired by sewpixie's post i think. I'm not so good at the wire bending yet, so they aren't completely closed, but the came out pretty good. This is the closest picture i could get.
Barbie shoes, also made a red pair for another friend but forgot to take a picture of it.
This is somthing I made up. It's jump rings (i think that's what they are called. little circle to attach stuff to earrings) with little tear drop beads on them. They look sorta like grapes Cheesy
Thanks for looking. Happy Holidays Cheesy

10  Chronicals of the non-sewer in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Tom-Kat on: November 11, 2006 07:10:05 PM
So i went to see Enter the Haggis live in concert. So getting a shirt they had two colors, black and blue. My brother gives me a hard time with all my black shirts (is it my fault all the cool shirts are black?). So i oppted for the blue shirt. Problem- the blue shirts only came in 2x. So i got one figuring I could redo it later. Not knowing how to sew i sewed it by hand making it up as I went along. After many hours, finger-sticks, and curses later i present my new haggis head shirt.

This is the front. The triangles in the front could have been done better, but i was making it up and was running out of blue fabric after three tries Cheesy.
P.S I'm not as fat as this picture makes me look.

This is the back. Sorry about the crappy picture, hard to take a picture of your own back. I got a blue plaid shirt for goodwill and used that for the back. I cut the band name off the origional shirt and sewed it on the back.
FYI-Enter the Haggis is an awsome celtic rock band.
Thanks for looking and let me know what you think.
