1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Mustaches for everyone! (pic heavy) on: January 08, 2009 10:58:12 PM
So I work for a fairly dull federal agency in DC and I tend to entertain myself by making things, or decorating (you should see how many paper snowflakes I've made!). ANYHOW I'm not the only one at work who likes to entertain themself with silly things. So at our office holiday party some of the ladies challenged the guys to compete in a mustache competition.

Today is the judging and I decided to make "trophies" for the guys who participated (they'll also be receiving a disposable razor!). For my trophies I made little stuffed mustaches on sticks. I painted the sticks gold, as well as styrofoam blocks to make trophy holders. Here's a look at the results:

Mustaches in their holders:

I hope you enjoy my tribute to hirsute men! I definitely want to make more, they're so fun!

2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Simple Bunny on: August 28, 2008 02:24:07 PM
So my cousin's daughter just turned 4 and I decided to try and recreate a bunny pattern I had made for my other cousin (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=135033.0). I found some brown fleece, and the spotted some cute complementary fabric in a light turqouisey blue with brown polka dots. To reduce, reuse, and recycle, I stuffed her with old holey pantyhose. The sewing was a bit rough since I was rusty (and am still inexperienced) so my mother helped a good deal, but I think she turned out well.

I give you Dot the Bunny:

Ears up

Ears Down

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Baby Bunny on: November 23, 2006 05:21:08 PM
I made this baby bunny out of micro fleece, and I embroidered on the face. I stitched over a small piece of fleece to raise the nose up a bit.

I think it's pretty darling, and it wasn't that hard to make at all.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Tattoo Shirt on: August 16, 2005 04:54:30 PM
So I've been intrigued with tattoos for a little while now. I don't have one, but I think the art is amazing. I enjoy seeing what people do for traditional chest pieces. Not wanting to get one myself I thought perhaps I'd put one on a shirt. This one is just a trial run using permanent marker (the black is sharpie rub-a-dub laundry marker). I think it makes for a pretty cool design. I think maybe next time I'll paint it on though.

This is the outline in the laundry marker:

and this is the (almost) finished product (I still have to figure out what to but in the banner)

5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Dunkin' Don! on: March 13, 2005 08:39:07 PM
My favorite professor is obsessed with Dunkin' Donuts and his name just so happens to be Don. So the result is:
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Maine T-shirt on: March 10, 2005 09:17:09 PM
I'm a dedicated Mainer, I'm in love with my state. So I decided to make this t-shirt for when I go back to school to show my pride.

This is my first silk screen and i'm pretty jazzed about it.

Tell me what you think!

I used the modge podge embroidery hoop method. I had been doing stencils before this...but this is just so easy...and re-usable! I'm so excited!
7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Men Seldom Make Passes At Girls Who Wear Glasses -Shirt on: February 06, 2005 07:29:06 PM
So you might have seen my Steve Buscemi shirt : https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6756.0

I hadn't made one in awhile, so I decided that I just had to. This time I moved away from the figures and images and went with text. I chose the Dorothy Parker quote "Men seldom make passes at girls who wear glasses," because well...I wear glasses-make the connection. This is how it turned out.

I decided to include some glasses at the bottom for a cute effect. I'm really happy with the way it turned out, and hopefully it will turn some heads.
8  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Birthday Fairy Costume on: February 01, 2005 09:36:20 AM
So my friends and I are poor college students and don't really have the money to buy birthday presents for everyone. We felt bad that our friend's birthday is today and we hadn't gotten her anything. So we decided to make her a birthday costume so everyone would know that it was her birthday. Using two wire hangers, a pair of needle nose pliers, and old t-shirt, some duct tape, a hot glue gun and some water colors we were able to make her pair of fairy wings. Then we made her a princess hat out of a conical piece of paper and attached more painted t-shirt strips. Instead of making her a card we made her a wand and we attached our birthday sentiments to it as streamers. The wand by the way is the card board part that covers a wire hanger simply covered in duct tape, with 2 carboard stars taped on back to back. And the result of all our low-budget, college-girl crafting...

I'm particularly proud of the wings they were my creation. Grin
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Peachy Scarf on: May 30, 2004 07:29:52 PM
I started this project back when it was actually scarf weather and I just finished it. I think I saw this pattern on here awhile ago, but I can't be sure. I combined 2 strands, one mohair and one normal wool. I knitted them on huge size 15 needles and every 5, rows (I think Undecided) I would wrap the wool around the needle twice before knitting the next stitch. And here are the results:

Here is a close up:

The pictures don't really capture it...but it is very fuzzy!
10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Steve Buscemi Bleach Stencil on: May 30, 2004 03:31:16 PM
So I was intensely jealous when I saw all these silk screen stenciled t-shirts. Not having/knowing the proper paint to use, I decided that I would use something I had -- a bleach pen! I went through the same process as shown in the Sophia Loren Tutorial to get the stencil, but instead of cutting out the black i cut out the white parts. Then I put it on my shirt and applied the gel with the pen. I found it worked best where it dried. So here is my first attempt at t-shirtdom:

It is a bit funky, but I enjoy it. I'm thinking of adding his name onto it to tell people who it is. I'd appreciate any feedback you have.
