1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / How To Prevent Fading???? on: August 24, 2007 11:04:02 AM
Four months ago I made some poster sized signs for my church. I printed them on an inkjet printer.   They are in a window that gets a LOT of sun. They are looking really pale now.   I realize that no matter what I do I can not completely stop the fading, but is there a way to slow the fading down?  I was thining maybe a glaze or a sealer???  Right now they are in glass frames.

I'm going to print some new banners and would like any advice you could give me.  I know the sun is an enemy of papers and inks. 

Thank you all for your help!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / T-Shirt Ribbon Tab Skirt For Dimy on: July 31, 2007 05:40:20 AM
I wanted to make my daughter a 4th of July outfit but didn't want to spend a lot of money on fabric and notions so I hit the thrift store.  At my local thrift store each week a different colored tag is 25 cents. So this skirt cost probably less than a dollar once it was all done.    

So anyways....I found this flaggy tshirt and knew right away what I wanted to do with it.  

I made it into a skirt for  Diamond but made the front printing to be on the butt.  I also put some little ribbon tabs along the bottom.  I think that touch made the skirt pop.

Here are the action shots....

Every time she's worn this outfit she gets tons of compliments.  She doesn't usually wear jeans underneath....it was just cold the day I took pictures. Smiley

I hope you all like it as much as I do.  It was super easy to make and tshirt material is so easy to work with.

Oh...and thanks for letting me share.  I don't really have any crafting buddies around here who share my enthusiasm and I have to tell somebody!  LOL.


3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Ruffley TShirt Recon ~ My First Post on: July 07, 2007 05:18:56 PM
This is my very first post although I've been inspired by y'all to cut up a few other t-shirts.  Smiley

 Basically I was walking through my local Walmart yesturday and saw this boxy WISCONSIN TShirt in my favorite color.  I wanted it and it was only $5!  I immediately thought of this tute and bought it.  


Here is the finished product.




Notice how I made the front into the back.  That way it didn't mess up the wording when I cut and tied it.  

This was the easiest recon ever.  I tried it on every step of the way just to make sure it was the right size.  I would definately recommend this for anyone just starting to recon.  

Thanks for looking.
