1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / AllAmericanReject's HAN SOLO STENCIL!! on: May 20, 2005 08:50:41 PM
First of all I have to give the credit for this stencil entirely to AllAmericanReject - she is amazingly talented in the area of stencil-making, and has great taste in movies! (I hope you don't mind me posting your stencil - I just thought it was so awesome!)

Okay, I can take a little of the credit for having to deal with all those islands. But direct all your complements to her! (meaning post here but say "omg that's awesome" to her, not me)

I just whipped this up to wear to a party tonight, so it's a little (okay, a lot) off center.
Sooo.. awesome!
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Unfinished Felt MONSTER - Help me decide! on: May 18, 2005 09:00:57 PM
I need help choosing eyes for my little monster (and a name would be nice). He is for my friend's birthday friday and I'm not sure if I should go with:

Option A: (no pupils)

Option B: (little black felt pupils)

or Option C: (googly eyes!)

If you could vote for your favorite I would probably have to think that you are pretty awesome.
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pop top braclet! **with tutorial** (tons of pics) on: August 04, 2004 04:04:38 PM
Here it is!

and on my arm:


First you need to get yourself a LOT of pop tops.

I needed like 30 for my wrist.

Dig through your neighbor's recycle bin if you don't feel like chugging down sugar water.

But you need to be sure to leave the little circle thing attached to the pop top.

So turn the pop top around backwards like that, and pull!!

It takes some practice, and be carefull, I have cut my fingers a few times on the can opening....

(just a picture showing the diffrerent types of pop tops, square and *round*)

And now grab some elastic. Like 1/8 or 1/16 of an inch kind, cause it needs to fit through the little pop top holes.

Thread it through your pop tops like this:

when it will fit nicely around your wrist, tie the elastic sort of tightly, all the pop tops should line up very neatly.

And there you have it!

If there are any problems, please let me know right away!

4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / My first *susessfull* attempt at stenciling.. on: August 03, 2004 07:54:35 PM
I've 'ruined' two shirts and a tote bag before finally finding a good technique..

It says "I'm the one they told you about" in case you can't read it.
Sorry, the pic is a little busty... hehe

I bought the shirt for like $2 at Hobby Lobby (gotta love hobby lobby  Kiss) it's really pinker than it looks..
Printed the words on a piece of cardstock, cut them out with an exacto knife, stuck the stencil on the shirt with spray adhesive, and painted it with acrylic paint mixed with textile medium.

Worked like a charm. Except on the last two letters, where I ran out of mixed paint and got lazy and just squirted the paint and textile medium on the brush and slapped it on there. It kinda bled through there.

So there you have it.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / $2 cool pleated skirt from pillowcases on: June 23, 2004 01:48:55 PM
Well, this is my third attempt at reconstructing thrift store finds, and it was most definitly the hardest. I took two pillowcases, cut them open, sewed them togther, pleated them (which took 2 hours of my life) and sewed it up along with some elastic. Tell me what you think!

The whole cost of the skirt was about $2 dollars! How can you beat that?

Oh, and you can't see it in the picture, but I messed up the pleats where I sewed it together.

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Fridge decoration on: June 22, 2004 08:22:53 PM
Has anyone ever thought about decorating the inside of your fridge?

Or would that be to weird/crazy/ or just down-right creepy?

Please share any of your ideas!

Also, would the chilliness of the fridge affect paint or glue or whatever?
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / temporary hemming? on: June 17, 2004 01:12:41 PM
Hi. This is my first post, so wahoo...  Grin

Now for my question.

I'm trying to hem up my pleated uniform skirt about 4 inches, but I don't want to cut it and risk having to buy a new one for $40. Any ideas on how to hem it without cutting, and possibly without sewing? It would be great if it would stay hemmed through a few washes too.

Thanks ever so much
