12  Cross-stitched Robot in Needlework: Completed Projects by skaramouche on: August 04, 2004 04:02:27 PM
I loved the counter on my xanga so much, I made a cross-stitch design of it.  I dunno why I never thought of cross-stitching a robot before, they're PERFECT- so....square...

13  XL Las Vegas Tank- recon to the max! (w/ tutorial) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by skaramouche on: July 07, 2004 10:03:54 PM
Here's a REALLY easy way to reconstruct a boring shirt.  It'll take 1-2 hours, tops (maybe less if you're not slow like me Embarrassed)  It worked really well w/ one of my dad's  old tanks, but I'm sure you could chop the sleeves off an old tee and it would work as well.  This method's been posted before, but the shoulders are a bit different, so I went ahead and did a little tutorial...

1.  Lay shirt flat (ironing helps).  Figure out how much you need to take from each side, mark with a straight line, and pin.  (I took about 4 inches off)

2. Cut your shirt vertically where the fold is, all the way from the armholes to the bottom, separating the 2 layers of your shirt.

3. Cut small strips, up to the line you marked, all the way down the sides.  I'd say mine were about 1/3"-1/2" thick....

3. Tie all of the strips together, reconnecting your shirt.

4. For the shoulder straps, I just cut the straps at the top,  slipped each end through a keyring, folded it over, and did a backstitch all the way across:

Well, that's about it- easy peasy, right?  Here's the finished shirt:

You can see a clear version of the side here: http://img78.photobucket.com/albums/v285/skaramouche/shirt3.jpg

Hope my first tutorial wasn't TOO confusing Undecided

14  Steve-O Tattoo! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by skaramouche on: July 04, 2004 05:49:56 PM
Here you go, step-by-step instructions on creating your very own Steve-O! This was probably one of the most...um...interesting projects I've taken on (and my first stencil ever!).  The coolest thing was that we did it in art class, and the teacher thought it was great- I <3 Mrs. Copeland!

1. First, create your stencil. Done on poster board, from an actual photo of Steve-O's tat.

2. Next, find a willing Steve-O look-alike. I found mine wandering the halls... (Matthew rox!)

3. Make sure your stencilling surface is flat... bonus: You can see a little bit of a stencil by C-WAM in the back.  He kicks my butt.

4. Sharpie away! Tip: Remove ALL acrylic prom nails first, they just slow down the process Tongue

5. Wh00t! It's Steve-O!

Special thanks to Matt, I barely even knew him when we did this- he's cooler than cool Grin

Thanks guys!  Wow, it's nice to see people like this movie as much as I do  Grin  Ellsey, here's the stencil I used (I made the bg brown so you could see where to paint the white):

ChemicalsMyDear, I have a confession....it wasn't my 1st stencil, just my first shirt.  So I got a little practice; lol my very first stencil was Steve-O's tattoo, I sharpied it onto a friend's back.  Gotta post that sometime....

Oh xkrizx, the shirt was just an old tee that belonged to my friend's mom.  I liked the color, so I took it and resized it to fit  Smiley

17  School of Rock Shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by skaramouche on: June 30, 2004 09:13:42 PM
A lot of firsts here, first sewing project, first stencilled T....so please excuse it's not-so-perfectness  Grin  This shirt was altered from an XL my friend was gonna throw out.  So I traced around a shirt that fit, hemmed it, and stencilled using fabric paint & Krylon.  Everything went pretty well, except the fabric paint went through and dried to the poster board I used to separate the layers. *makes mental note of this*
