1  48 hour skull dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by punk_flamingo on: February 06, 2008 11:32:35 AM
I was part of the 48 hour film festival over the summer and at the screening I got a nifty t-shirt. This skull fabric was part of a shirt I was sewing and jacked up. Together, they make a nifty dress.
Thanks to "What the Craft?" for the tutorial. I altered it a bit so the neckline would be round instead of the deep v-cut.


The shirt ties around the neck like a halter, but my bra straps look more apart of it so they don't stick out so much. Yay! My friends give me so much crap when my bra strap shoes. Tongue

2  Skull and "crossbows" in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by punk_flamingo on: February 03, 2008 10:13:26 AM
I stayed the night at my friends after her church fun night and raffle, and brought a bag of interesting clothes scraps. With 'em, we patched some pants, and covered Old Navy logos and stains on shirts. This was my art punks shirt, and the logo is printed on the back. So, I came up with this:

I'll post a picture here of my friends shirt she made when I get one. Smiley

I was in need of a cool hat and my gift card from target was wearing a hole in my pocket. I picked up this cuddly plain black hat on clearance for only 2 dollars. The rabbit I had I got for easter from my ex-boyfriend's mom. It held little significance to me and I was willing to give it up to make an exquisite hat.

Basic supplies. Needle, thread, scissors, hat, stuffed animal, and not pictured, I used a box cutter to cut along the seem

our poor victim

I also used the tail to sew on the back of my hat. Here's the side view.

My dad models the hat for me

done! Only took about 30 min. I'm sure that if I make another one though, it'll go a little faster. Thanks!

5  Art Punks suitcase: A journey in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by punk_flamingo on: September 16, 2007 02:04:09 PM
Art Punks is the 9th grade art club the teacher separate building started. I was in Art Punks last year and am a returning mentor this year. Our first project Ms. Gannon started us on was painting a hard leather suitcase to keep our art supplies and work in. I just got this beauty yesterday at the D.A.V. and I'm going to show you what I did!

Here are my supplies. I have a brown cardboard squiggly thing, fake flowers, and my spray paint.

I started off with a base coat of white spray paint.

I added a light blue and light silver coat over the white and placed down my brown squiggle. This is the side "A".

I went over my squiggle with black paint on the top and bottom of the side "A".

On side "B" I did the same kind of base coating with the white, blue, and silver. I held the fake flowers against it to create a light silhouette.

I used one of the fake flowers as a stencil and went over it in black and some in silver.

Here's the halfway finished side "B"

I painted my "company" name. This year I'll be taking pictures, selling reconned picture frames, and selling prints. The complete side "a".

The complete side "B"

A close-up of the tree. To get the blue waves in it, I used the opposite end of my paint brush and scraped away the paint to reveal the blue base coat.

also, while waiting for the paint on the suitcase to dry, I used the spare paint on my jeans. hooray!

the end!

6  Painted shoes. Pretty much- that's it. in Shoes: Completed Projects by punk_flamingo on: August 13, 2007 04:16:18 AM
So, I saw someone painting shoes and decided I'd make good use of my fabric paint. They both were black to start with, and I just showed a couple pictures of my favorite sides. Hope you're inspired

7  movie premiere dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by punk_flamingo on: August 02, 2007 05:45:13 AM
Tonight our film group z-class films, is going to be shown tonight at the town's independent movie theater. We were apart of the 48 hour film fest. (http://www.48hourfilm.com/desmoines/) Our short film is called,"a stone cold killer" from the cop/detective category. I play the voice of the talking rock, who also is the killer. Go me!
So, I made this dress to wear tonight! The green is from a pillowcase. My mom used the matching sheets to upholster a chair in our basement, so I thought it was fair game and I could use it. The black silky like material was from the bottom of a dress I got at hot topic. I cut the bottom of the dress to just wear the top. So.. Anywho- here it is!

9  Alice in Wonderland Shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by punk_flamingo on: July 19, 2007 06:13:06 AM
I've been wanting to do something cute with this for a while. So, I resized it, and found these two identically shaped white scraps in my pile. They were destined to be together. It can also be worn as a sort of "off the shoulder" top. Or you can just say it is when the "sleeves" Fall down.  Cheesy

the back has all of the staff member names inside of a Tea Cup!

10  George Bush (blank) shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by punk_flamingo on: July 19, 2007 06:09:41 AM
My dad got this for me when he was running for president in 2000. I don't know why. He didn't vote for the guy. I guess there must have been free food... So, my dad some how knew I was magically destined to be in politics. I present to you the "George Bush shirt"

Before I changed it, below this it had a puff paint "American Idiot" below. I thought it was sorta cheesy in puff paint. So, I have this glorious space to put something else! I was thinking of stenciling on "American Idiot" on it again instead, or putting something in bright red saying,"LOSER!!" What do we think?
